Encountering the fairies in the Forest is one of the more useful events in this game. The only place you can find them is at their bathing pool. There, you will be given the choice of asking for a blessing or trying to catch one.
What you ask for depends on what your goals are. If you want to rob the bank or have a fairy as insurance in a fight, try to catch one. Your odds are 50/50. If you want to try for a Horse, Gems, Experience or healing (and usually players only are interested in the horse), ask for a blessing. Your odds of getting any one are 1:4.
Pertinent Fairy Information Edit
Fairies cannot be used in online Player duels.
You can only have one Fairy at a time. If you have one in hand and try to catch another, it won't give you two, or make you lose the one you have, no matter what the screen says.
If you leave the game, either willingly or if you're booted, you will instantly lose your fairy.

How much gold might you get when you rob the bank? Here's a handy chart that shows the minimum and maximum gold amounts per level. As you see, it's not worth it to rob the bank on level 1 if you can do Jennie LADY instead. Keep that fairy and use it to squeak by Halder with minimal equipment. If you've still got the fairy, rob the bank on level 2.

|1||500 - 999|
|2||4,000 - 7,992|
|3||13,500 - 26,973|
