Fire Emblem Engage has a brand-new feature that allows you to adopt animals you encounter throughout the game’s world. This is only available between the battles you participate in, when you’re allowed to roam the world and explore. Here’s exactly how to adopt animals, and why you should care about this resourceful feature.
How to Adopt Animals in Fire Emblem Engage
First, in order to gain the ability of adopting animals, you must complete the fourth chapter of Engage. You’ll know you unlocked this feature when, like all features, the notification pops up informing you adoption has been unlocked.
To adopt an animal, simply approach the animal. You don’t have to worry about being sneaking, as they will not run away. Go up to the animal and press ‘Adopt’ when the prompt appears on screen. It’s that simple! Animals are scattered throughout the world, and there are over 20 of them in Fire Emblem Engage. Some animals are extremely rare and don’t appear very often, so be on the lookout for any animals and approach them all!
It is important to note that you won’t be able to adopt all animals right away. A lot of them you will be able to adopt right away. However, there are some that will require you to rank up your donation level. The donation level is a threshold for select animals, and unless you meet the criteria, you will not be allowed to adopt it. The donation level depends on the region the animal is from, which is where you’ll also find them.
Why You Should Adopt Animals
After adopting the animal, it will now provide you with resources that you can use to your advantage. All animals will had back to the Somniel, which serves basically as Engage’s hub. Here, you can now visit them in the designated fenced-in farm.
Each of the animals at the barn will drop resources and items for you. These are extremely important and helpful, as they can allow you to craft new weapons and even outfits. Some of more challenging weapons and outfits to obtain can easily be helped through collecting animal resources.
Keep in mind that you can only have a certain number of animals out and roaming in your farm at once. You are able to adopt as many as you want, however, only the ones that are out will give you rewards and resources. This becomes important when you’re looking for certain drops, so you might have to adjust which animals are roaming and which aren’t from time to time.
As you can see, adopting animals in Fire Emblem Engage is beneficial, while also being fun at the same time! Interested in more Fire Emblem Engage guides? Be sure to check out our guide on the Weapon Triangle and Break mechanic!
