Haven't seen a thread on this, but has anyone noticed that the Chocobo on the main page of FINAL FANTASY XIV is loaded down with characters gear,

possibly additional storage, any speculations or news I've missed?

If that was the case, the chocobo would have to stay with you and not run away after you dismounted so that you could access your storage. Is there a final fantasy game where the chocobo wouldn't run away after you got off? I've only played VII, X, XI, and XII and I think they always run if they appear in those games

In some Final Fantasy games you had the option to dismount the Chocobo and send it back, or have it wait on you while you explore the area.

your very own chocobo as transport and storage.

I kinda like that idea.

Well some people forgot the Fat Chocobo which serves as a storage unit. I like the idea of Choco's being our mules this time. If I have to have 5 chars to hold all my gear, I'll gonna be *******

I think I remember reading that chocobos will not be ride-able this time around, although it could be the pot torching my brain cells that is making me think this way.

Chocobos in FFXIV if I was game designer:

1) Chocobos can store inventory items.

2) Certain places cannot allow chocobos, so you have to pick your items b4 you go in. This will limit job changing in certain areas and create a bigger challenge.

3) Chocobos can be ridden anywhere they are allowed.

4) Chocobos need to be caught in the wild Avatar style by defeating it, then riding it.

5) Chocobos can eat some of the drops you get from mobs and get bigger, and store more items.

6) Chocobos can be called with a chocobo whistle.

7) Chocobos can race each other on a track with many obstacles. You can throw stuff at other people in the race to slow them down, also avoid stuff on the road like banana peels, mario kart style. All sorts of prizes can be awarded.

Got some nifty little ideas floating around in there, I like the idea of choco inventory just so that my bags arent flooding with all my gear for class swaps plus whatever drops I snag along the way.
