Driving them to the lowest pixel of health as much as possible?
Any tips ?

The babanas familiar needed for the errand is driving me insane, dropping them to their minuscule health still refuse to show their yucky hearts.

You actually have to defeat them for those hearts to show up. After they lost all their health there is a chance they will stand up again with those hearts above their head.

I think the standard chance for that to happen is around 25% and going down as far as 4% for rare types of familiars.

So in other words, the fastest way is to just kill them and cross your fingers?
That I can do :D , I got sick of trying to get to their lowest health.
Thanks!

Yeah, pretty much. LIke I said, the percentages are rather low. I spent several hours trying to get 2 specific familiars I really wanted. I just couldnīt get them. And both times once I had given up on them the next time I encountered them in battle I managed to catch them. So I think the game actually enjoys torturing players. :)

Btw, I think there are merit rewards later on which can raise your chance of catching familiars but Iīm not a 100% sure.
