Added with the Friends and Foes Update, familiars are small versions of enemies that follow the player like a pet and assist them in various ways. Familiars are stored in the special Farm found east of The Moonlighter, and are infinitely reusable. Interacting with the sign in front of the farm allows the player to view and equip familiars.

There are a total of 15 familiars players can acquire.

Getting a Familiar[]

Familiars hatch from eggs that drop after killing certain enemy types a set number of times. Note that the egg does take up an inventory slot, but will automatically be stored in the farm after exiting the Dungeon. Eggs take 3 full days to hatch.
