Chocobos in FFXIVFollow

So we've heard that chocobos will not be used as a form of transportation this time around. I was wonderring how intrigued people were with the trailer, specifically the chocobo. Obviously its all speculation at this point but did you find it weird how much gear was being supported by the chocobo?

I think it would add a sense of realism to the FF world if everything you brought out to the "field" was somewhat accounted for even if they could only do this minimally. Somewhat keeping on point I always wonderred what certain type of necklaces looked like on my FFXI character. Looking at it this way you could load up your chocobo with X number of items and see him holding it all. If only for aesthetic purposes would anyone else appreciate details like this?

If there are any other thoughts in reguards to our beloved chocobos or you wanted to critique my idea I'd love to see them.

While SE has said they plan on using chocobos in a different way this doesn't necessarily rule out transportation. Maybe they'll have mounted chocobo fights or they might have saddle packs to keep some of your junk while you're riding them. Maybe you can customize your chocobo or armor it or maybe they'll have mecha-chocobos...and mecha-chocobo death matches.

I want to raise my chocobo again, hmmm maybe they will be a bit more like UO or DF mounts... not just vanish when you hop off.. mmmm I like that idea.

Jousting and racing is good too.

Chocobos as pack mules seems plausible and a tad bit more realistic than carrying around all your **** in "gobbie bags."

However, any realism gained in this manner is out the window if we're still changing pants, gloves, armor, shoes, earrings, etc. in the span of a second before we WS or use a certain ability.

Also, while it might be cool at first, having a chocobo following everyone everywhere would get old after a while.

That's why we'll be able to use moogle magic to make the shrinkable!

As long as we can breed them in the differnt breeds/colours, then I am game. And something that is, well, a little more viable than "this helps" or "this isn't proven to work, but there is a chance". I tried FOREVER to get a black Chocobo to no avail in XI, lolz.

Im not sure how well this idea would be received, as we all do love the moogles.

but maybe this time round chocobos might replace the moogles as your moghouse where u store equipment/change jobs/configure your character. Having them travel with you means you can access such amenities without having to be in town, or maybe the chocobos are like a mobile moghouse that provides you limited "moghouse" capabilities while out in the field.

One could load their chocobo with equipment/ability to change to a limited number of jobs; which you can access as and when the situation calls for (obviously out of battle).

Do hope they retain chocobo breeding though. Loved my light green chocobo.
