Communication is a skill in Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.


Communication skill training is unlocked by completing Cecilia's request, Please Find Something. XP in this skill is raised by using the Pet Glove, Brush, Milker, Clippers, and Harvest Basket.

The purpose of the Communication Skill is to tame Monsters as battle companions and farm helpers. The higher the protagonist's Communication skill, the fewer pets it takes to tame a monster or raise its Friendship Level (FL). Monsters with higher FL give higher-quality produce, have more hit points, and change their behavior around the barn.

For a complete breakdown of how FL affects monsters, see the Monsters page.
