"Riffs are masterful musicians. Very little is known about these complex monsters, but they do have some distinct and unusual habits. For example, Riffs use their flexible toes to select random objects from the ground which they inspect, then eat."
Riffs are big orange monsters with three toes per foot, maroon hair, ears that appear to be the wings of a bat, and traces of feathers in their limbs.
Riffs carry one-eyed guitars, that are strummed to produce their characteristic song.
The Riff Monster's contribution to an island's song is playing an instrument resembling an electric guitar. The guitar is not actually electric, nor is it a real instrument: it is another monster who shares a symbiotic relationship with the Riff. The guitar monster produces sounds matching its real-life counterpart.
The following pairs of 2-element monsters can be used to breed a Riff:
However, the combination of a 3-element with 1-element monster has a higher rate of successfully producing a Riff. Possible combinations:
The Riff is hard to breed, so you probably need to light a few Wishing Torches.
Earning rate is in coins per minute.
|Level||0% Happiness||25% Happiness||50% Happiness||75% Happiness||100% Happiness|
Each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time.
Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute. The food per level is the same for all four element monsters and can be found in this article.
Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster, the monster's happiness will increase by 25% (in other words, placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%).
