The Monster Farm

A new building has been introduced to Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire: The Monster Farm! In this article, we’ll be covering the new building and the new associated monster boost and answering frequently-asked questions concerning the Farm.


 

Unlocking the Monster Farm

 

The Monster Farm is an “Advanced” building like the Mercenary Fighting Pits and the Mythic Forge, and requires an item to unlock. You can find the Monster Farm unlock in packs and (supposedly, although we’ve seen no reports yet) as a rare drop from chests in game.

 

Monster Farm Unlock

 

At this time, the Monster Farm has a single level, and allows for you to breed a single type of monster: the beloved Chocobo.

 

Breeding Chocobos

Once you have the monster farm unlocked, you can breed chocobos using eggs and hatching stones. The unlock pack comes with eggs and hatching stones.

 

Chocobo Colors

 

At the time of this writing, every chocobo gives the same boost: +88% attack when your hero is included in the march. It has to be an attack march and your hero must be included to get the boost.

 

When sending hero, your normal march graphic on the map will be replaced by your chocobo. This is entirely cosmetic though; your chocobo isn’t a “troop” in the sense that it cannot be lost or killed. The march is entirely normal aside from the visual change and the boost’s inclusion.

 

Again, the color of Chocobo is random depending on the egg used. All colors are entirely cosmetic, all of them give the +88% to Attack.

 

Mechanically, the chocobo is essentially a piece of gear that doesn’t take a slot. Also it looks cool. I mean, who doesn’t love smiting their enemies with a giant bird?

 

Frequently-Asked Monster Farm Questions

 

Q:Does the chocobo boost apply for all marches, or just marches that include my hero?

A: Just marches that include your hero.

 

Q: Do I lose the Chocobo if I lose the march or if my hero is captured?

A: No. Your chocobo survives all attacks, successful or not, and you don’t lose it if your hero is capped.

 

Q:Does the boost apply on rallies or just solo marches?

A: If your hero is leading the rally, you get the chocobo boost.

 

Q: Does the chocobo boost apply on defense?

A: No, the attack boost only applies on attack.

 

Q: Do rarer chocobos give a better boost?

A: No, at this time the difference between chocobos is entirely cosmetic. Everything gives you the 88% attack boost.


 

Should You Get The Monster Farm

 

If you like to attack things and it fits into your pack budget, the Monster Farm is a solid choice. It is a +88% attack boost to hero marches for a single pack with no strings attached, which is a really good deal compared to pretty much anything you can get from a pack.

 

Breeding a full stable of rare chocobos costs additional packs, sure, but the only actual game effect there is the color of the chocobo. You don’t have to (and can’t at this time) upgrade the boost through breeding, so it is just a flat 88% boost.

 

It is likely that different levels will be added to the Monster Farm giving access to different monsters, or the breeding mechanic will be altered for future monsters so rarer ones give a better boost (costing more packs). But that won’t change the benefit of the chocobo one bit. This is a solid boost for the price of a pack, and the ability to customize your giant attack bird if you so choose is a nice extra.

And as with all packs, the unlock also comes with gold, rss and speedups, so think about slotting this one into your advancement if you buy packs.

    What about malboros? It seems that I get the eggs and hatch them with 1500 stones but I do not see them when I lead any attacks. Do I have to unlock the monster farm to use them? What bonuses do rare malboros give over regular?
