      • Obtain and equip a Fynn Bell from NPC Price's Shop to gain a new quest '[Pet Training] Shining and Glittering'. Proceeding through this quest will gain you access to the brand-new Pet Trainer talent!
      • Beginner Milletians can gain access to the talent by finishing the tutorials. Doing so will grant you the Beginner's Feathery Fynn Bell item and a limited title, and after rebirthing, the Pet Trainer talent will be available.
      • Check out the Pet Trainer Guide for in-depth information about the many different skills a Pet Trainer possesses!
    • Mag Mell & The Peculiar Children: A new zone to explore and cast of characters to meet!
      • Mag Mell is the last resting place of the Fairies. You won't be able to access all of the wonderful mysteries of Mag Mell just yet!
      • Begin to unravel the story of the fairies and learn more about the dynamic duo Pinkie and Katell.
    • Fynni Gems: A weak and fragile type of fairy that dwells within many creatures of Erinn, Fynni spirits can be captured when defeating certain enemies found in the Taming section of the Collection Journal.
      • Fynni spirits are captured when you defeat monsters marked with a Fynni Gem symbol above their heads.
      • The Fynni Catching skill is used in order to preserve the Fynni as a Fynni Gem when the monster is defeated. Fynni Catching is a passive skill and does not require a Fynn Bell equipped to use.
      • The Skill Rank of Fynni Catching will impact your chances of receiving a Fynni Gem.
      • The types of Fynni Gems you can obtain vary depending on the type and the grade of a monster that possesses one.
      • Fynni Gems have different grades ranging from Grade E (lowest) to Grade A (highest). This measures the strength of the Fynni spirit as well as how long it takes to Blossom in your Homestead.
    • Fynni Blossoming: By using a Blossoming Cage, you can awaken a Fynni Gem from its dormant slumber into a full-fledged Fynni Pet by using the Fynni Blossoming active skill. You must install a Blossoming Cage in your Homestead in order to do so.
      • There are two types of Blossoming Cages that require different materials to install. If you lack the materials, you can use Pon in their place.
      • You can have a max of 4 Blossoming Cages on your Homestead at any given time, regardless of their type.
      • Only the owner of a Homestead may use a Blossoming Cage installed in it.
      • Your Fynni Gem will continue to Blossom even while logged out.
    • Fynni Pets: The byproduct of awakening a sleeping Fynni from a Fynni Gem using Fynni Blossoming! These are physical manifestations of a special fairy that took on the appearance of the monster you released it from. Fynni Pets seek to merge with other pets to empower then into awesome Fynn Pets. In doing so, the Fynni Pet is lost, however happily resides within the soul of the newly empowered Fynn Pet.
      • While a Fynni Pet has many similar characteristics of a normal pet such as being summonable and even fighting, they are closer to catalysts than functioning pets. They cannot have names set, do not have an inventory, cannot be logged in with, cannot level up, do not age, cannot be sent on Pet Expeditions, and cannot rest at Pet Houses. They are happy little spirits that are content with merely existing!
      • Ultimately, their desire is to be used during Fynn Syncing in order to help the pet grow into a powerful Fynn Pet.
      • The Taming section of the Collection Journal¬†will record the different types of Fynni Pets you've encountered.
      • NPC Fionnait, a merchant located in the mystical new area Mag Mell, will happily adopt any Fynni Pets that you cannot care for and compensate you with some Gold (up to 30x a day) and Gold-Leaf Pine Cones (no limit).

      • The Skill Rank of Fynn Crafting will affect your odds of obtaining a Pet Perk for your Fynn Pet as well as additional functions exclusive to the Fynn Sync skill. These include Element Change, Fynn Bead Slot Expansion, and Friend Summon Slot Expansion.
      • The act of Fynn Syncing as well as its auxiliary functions require various types of perfume materials, which can be obtained through Fynn Crafting.
        • Harmonious Cosmos Perfume: Required to perform Fynn Syncing (1x per each sub-pet merged).
        • Transformative Aster Perfume: Required to alter the element of a Fynn Pet.

        • The main pet absorbs the inventory size of the sub-pets, giving the ability to hold up to 3 inventories at once. Note that if you attempt to add another inventory after reaching the maximum of 3, you will have the choice to exchange an existing inventory with the new one if the new one has a more preferable inventory size.
        • The main pet absorbs the Pet Points of the sub-pets.
        • The main pet absorbs the summon durations of the sub-pets, up to a maximum of 23 hours. This summon duration increase is applied starting the following day at 7:00 AM PDT.
        • While Fynn Syncing has a chance to grant a Fynn Pet a new perk, if any sub-pets have a perk that the main pet does not, they will also be absorbed. Additionally, three new pet perks were added to the game.
      • Multiple Fynni Pets can be used in the process as well.

      • Fynn Pets have several new powers that set them apart from an ordinary pet:
        • Once a pet becomes a Fynn Pet, it randomly receives one of five different elements. These are special additional effects that trigger when your pet performs regular attacks on enemies. It can only be ranked up through Fynn Syncing when the Fynn Pet absorbs other pets.
          • The five elements are Uis, Sola, Tein, Gao, and Tala.

            • Sola: Uses the power of lightning to inflict an additional area-of-effect attack around the target.
            • Tein: Uses the power of fire to inflict damage-over-time to the target.

          • The element can be changed once your Fynn Sync skill reaches Rank C or better by using Transformative Aster Perfume.
          • Please be aware that the first pet that you ever perform Fynn Sync on will receive a random element, and you can only change it to one of your choice after reaching Rank C or higher on Fynn Syncing and using the proper perfume.
