Companions Activity and Crafting Guide

The Animal Companions are a helpful little bunch that can be sent out to find all manner of items on the homestead.

But what do they do, and how do we make them do it? Well, that's why we've written this guide!

The basics: Each animal can be sent on a job. The job takes a certain amount of time and then they return with items for your inventory. Each job takes a specific crafted item to do.

Although ANY animal can do ANY task you get an extra bonus if you use the animal with that item's speciality.
