They said Chocobos were going to be different this time around. Does that mean they'll be your storage, carrying all your gear swaps with you, or maybe combat pets, I've always wanted to see an armored chocobo pecking Bahamuts Eyes out.

Speculate, unless they've definitively said this and I just missed it, then send me a link.:)

I would love to see chocobos as rideable steed in combat or at least for certain classes. Maybe lancers or something and have some joust WS where you have to get a running start but it does seem kind of unlikely but maybe.

I don't think it's going to be combat, perhaps it will be storage. The packs on the chocobo in the video lead me to believe storage. I think SE will pull something out of their hat that none of us would have guessed though. All I really want is a chocobo mount, much like the mounts in most MMOs these days, but with the ability to breed them like in FFVII...only a bit more complex.

I too guess they will be like mobile storage or something to that extent.

I don't think the Chocobo itself would be pecking out eyes. If they did do Choco-combat, it would probably include your character attacking while mounted, not the chocobo itself.

^^^ This. I'd love if they re-introduced choco breeding. Even if they won't have the special abilities that they did in VII. It would just be great to have a different colored chocobo that was based on more than chance.

I think it will serve a similar function to item storage like mog houses. You go to the stables to retrieve items from your chocobos packs. It may also be used for transport and story related missions / quests that require chocobo access :P

I'd like to see choco's being used for lots of things, as well as the stuff above it would be nice to see the npc's useing them to pull wagons and plow fields etc.
How about they put in chocobo chariot racing but let you have full control of it unlike in ffxi.

Even if it was just riding, controllable racing would be awesome.

I also think pack mule would be the main purpose (unable to enter certain areas like dungeons and instances).

And chocobo racing later on (with breeding).

Then again, with different stances on a lot of classes, maybe chocobos could have different stances like:

Runner's Stance: Fast movement, just for traveling and hunting for treasure with the chocobo. (Like FFXI)

Combat Stance: You can fight while on a chocobo but the chocobo moves a lot slower then runner's stance but quicker then running on foot and your defenese and accuracy isn't as good but you have better evasion. You could also lose some WSes but gaining other ones only available on chocobos.

Trader's Stance: Where you get off the chocobo but it still follows you around like a pack mule npc. You could put stuff in it and sell stuff from it or use it for carrying all the loot from battles that won't fit in your inventory. Great for mining or farming items.

Also maybe have chocobo riding skill that determines how long you can use it and other uses. I think it would be interesting at the very least.

actually hearing you guys talk about racing it would be awesome to have a chocobo race in which you free ran with your choco through like a narrow canyon..that would be fun..or maybe a quest in which you have to have a chocobo cuz you run from like falling rocks or something to complete it. Would add a new variety of quests.

It would be highly useful as well as more realistic if the Chocobo itself could be used to carry around your equipment and such. Instead of doing Gobby bags you could do Chocobo saddles to increase the amount it could hold.
