Stress shortens the life of your monster in both Monster Rancher and Monster Rancher 2, so here’s what you need to know.
While you raise your monsters Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX, you will likely soon find that your assistant informs you that your monster is stressed every now and then. You should avoid this because if your monster is stressed, its lifespan will be shortened, which means that you will have less time to work your way up through these ranked tournaments.
So what causes stress, how can you avoid it, and how can you reduce your monster’s stress? This guide covers everything you need to know about stress in Monster Rancher and Monster Rancher 2.
What causes stress?
Put your monster through too many exercises without rest leads to stress and fatigue. Additionally, feed a monster food it doesn’t like will also increase his stress level.
In contrast to other measurable factors in the game, you cannot see the current stress level of your monster in the menu. However, your assistant will tell you every week how your monster is doing.
What happens when monsters are stressed?
Whenever your monster is stressed it shortens its lifespan so it will not live as long as it might otherwise have. Your monster is also more likely to run away when stressed – Not only do you lose valuable training time, but it is also a costly problem in the first Monster Rancher game. You don’t just have to Pay to find your monster, but if the monster damaged your stables while escaping, you have to do it also pay to fix that.
How do you avoid and reduce stress?
Ideally, you want to avoid getting stressed on your monster as its lifespan will decrease every time this happens. To avoid stress, do not be so strict with it during training, i.e. do not do too many exercises and let them rest preventively before your assistant tells you it’s tired. If you are told that your monster “looks good,” then you let it rest for the week.
If your monster is already stressed you can give him a mint leaf (which you can buy from the item store) to reduce stress.
Especially for Monster Rancher 2, Another good, but fairly costly, way to manage your monster’s stress is to feed it pills every week. Even if they don’t like to eat them, their stress levels go down every time.
