By finding a Fairy in a Jar, the player can release the Fairy trapped within and later recruit it as a source of colored light. A recruited Fairy may also aid the player in battle. Each time the player is struck by an enemy, there is a 5% chance that a Fairy recruited by the player will grant its blessing. This chance rises if the player is low on health.

Process Edit

To recruit a Fairy, you must first find a Fairy in a Jar (see respective article for locations). You may either release the Fairy or keep it until you need its help, or until you find a Fairy Font. Since Fairies will grant their blessings when released, keeping the jar sealed can be very beneficial.

Fairies also require that the player has obtained a Triforce Piece (Power, Wisdom, Courage, etc.) before they can be recruited.

Once the player has at least one Fairy in a Jar (opened or not) and a Triforce Piece, then Fairies can be recruited from a Fairy Font.

Fairy Font Edit

Two Fairy Fonts can be found in Skyrim and the Freezing Caves. One is east of Bilegulch Mine and the other is within in the Fairy Fountain connected to Kakariko Chapel.

Recruitment Edit

Only the Fairies the player has found can be recruited. If the player has released a Fairy, it will be appear and will be available for recruitment as soon as the Fairy Font is activated. If the player is carrying Fairies in Jars, the Jars will be opened upon interacting with the Fairy Font, and the Fairies within the Jars will be available for recruitment.

If the player does not have a piece of the Triforce, a message box will explain that Fairies will only follow those who carry a piece of the Triforce. If the player has not found any Fairies, a message box will explain that no Fairies can be recruited.

If the player has found at least one Fairy and carries a piece of the Triforce, a message box will ask whether the player wants to recruit or dismiss a Fairy.

Choosing to recruit a fairy will result in a prompt asking which kind of Fairy the player wishes to recruit: warm colored, cool colored, shades, or random. Warm colored Fairies include Red, Orange, Yellow, and Pink; cool colored Fairies include Blue, Green, and Purple; shade fairies include Black and White; and a random Fairy will be any available color.

Recruiting a Fairy will add a spell to the player's Restoration magic menu with the name of the Fairy that was recruited. Equipping and casting this spell will summon the Fairy and it will float by the player's head, casting colored light until the spell is cast again or a full day passes. All nine Fairies can be recruited at once.

Dismissal Edit

If the player chooses to dismiss a Fairy, a spell used to summon a Fairy will be removed from the player's magic menu and a message box will inform the player that a Fairy has left their service and the Fairy in question will fly away.

If the player has multiple Fairies recruited, then only one will be dismissed at a time in order of their color. Fairies are dismissed in this order: Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Black, White.

Blessings and Battle Effects Edit

In battle, Fairies have a 5% chance of assisting the player every time an enemy lands an attack. If the player is low on health, the Fairy will assist with stronger magic. A Fairy's assistance in a crisis is similar to the Fairy's blessing when released from a jar, with added effects.

Background and Inspiration Edit

The Fairy Recruitment system was added in version 6.3 with the Fairy Jars. The lights of the Fairies themselves are the same models used for the hint Fairies.

JKalenad's original plan was to allow the player to catch hint Fairies in glass jars and release them in battle if needed. The Fairies would have also served to protect the player from death and no Fairy recruitment system was planned.

JKalenad has plans to expand the assistance of the Fairies to fortify skills by 10% in addition to each Fairy's standard effects. He also plans to streamline the menus for dismissal to allow the player to choose which Fairy to dismiss, rather than being limited to a cycle. The battle effects of the Fairies will also be modified slightly.
