Ok so I haven't heard a thing on the choco's. Well very little anyways, so this is my thought. I think they carry all our equipment, their our pack mules. If you look at the main pic you see the choco holding our equipment. I think the char can care so much and the choco carries the rest. It may be like a roaming home point, but then again wheir are the moogles? So those are my thoughts on the matter.

From what they've said about being able to change jobs out in the field and thus needed all out equipment there I can see something like that happening with the chocobo's.

I think it would be cool if the chocobo was like a pet/sidekick for each player that they raise as you progress through the game and at points you can ride it and it expands your inventory.

They're our pack mules that carry our items? If you honestly think every player in the game is gonna have a chocobo following them... lol

Didnt mean to sound like a jerk. That was just a little funny. As the trailer indicates there will be chocobos in the game, as to what their use will be - probably just riding at the start. I'll also go as far as to assume that they won't be available right away, just like in FFXI.

i can see that, maybe something like the save-mog on ff9 map ? use a command(/whistle) and he comes running, then go away when you're done

That would work in theory... Until you get griefers that gather together and keep calling their chocobos and lagging your PS3/PC to ****. ;/

I don't think your choco will follow u around wheir everyone will see him. I think it will be more like the mogg snatchell. When u use it then he may appear. Like a roaming MH and u can upgrade it with more baggs to cary items as you go further in lvl. ( even though you don't lvl).

Yeah i have a feeling we'll all have "Fat Chocobo" to carry our stuff. It will appear on command to access our inv.

Please please please allow us to ride them for transport as well. maybe work our way up to questing a saddle or reins.

I'm going to have to attach some type of security system to my Chocobo. I can't have my mobile storage unit suddenly running off. Or worse yet *sighs* some sneaky little Miqo'te hoping on and riding away.

Or even worse still.... a Roegadyn. I can picture it now, poor Chocobo supporting all that weight! :(

I think their has to be another way to travel around sence u can only use the tele pads so much. So they need to make another way to travel. Look at FFXI and all the ways u can travel their. GO GO choco Mule packs...

Chocobo's were in the trailer, so they have some active role in FFXIV, but not sure what yet.

If they seriously give us chocco's and then we find out we can't ride them and they are only there as mules/equip storage then I think their will be a FF purist riot.

I would be cool with it aslong as I got something to ride like a moogle on jet powered roller skates..... yeah that would beat a Chocco Ride hands down

Chocobos will be our mobile moghouses and have put millions of moogles out of work. The moogles have bound together to form the evil garlean empire and I can't wait to pound their furry little faces in.

It would be pretty cool that your chocobo carried all your stuff. But, when you call him only you can see him (call him to take stuff out). And when you decide to mount him then it can be seen by everyone.

Kinda like a mobile moogle. If it carried your correspondence it would be more awesome (awesomer?)

Sorry, no time to read most of anything in the thread but I say chocobos will be food in FFXIV. Eat them and you run faster!

Hopefully they aren't used as our mules.. i just don't think i would be able to play happily knowing how much they would suffer, personally i would much rather prefer it if they play a closer role to us as players and after a long day of adventure and battles we can simply relax together and watch a movie in front of the open fire.

I would really like to see raising chocobos move from FFXI to FFXIV. So in this way you raise the type of chocobo you desire. Depending on what you feed it will determine it's mature purpose in its life - either a pack mule or a fast ride or a pack mule/ride combination where the chocobo's speed is diminished (just slightly). I would value my chocobo more if I could raise it myself. Otherwise, if no one wants to deal with that they can rent one as we do now in FFXI (less the mule attribute).

Is it wrong to still be holding on to the idea of chocobo ranches and raising and breeding chocobos, personally i would invest a load of time into something like that!.
