Okay I haven't played the beta but from what I saw of this was their is really great distances to cover just in the beta alone as I could see. Did they ever decide if they would allow chocobos to transport or not? Was mainly thinking of this cuz city to city walking seems to me will take a very long time, but idk.

I'm sure they exist I mean they're in the trailers, however I remember SE stating that they had a different use than they traditionally had. What that means idk but I do hope we're able to mount them again especially on such long treks.

i read that instead of riding them there is a mini game that lets you cut them up and use them to make food. The thing is i think i read it somewhere official... i hope to god it was a troll though

The real questions about Chocobos is will we have some degree of customization with them (color/decorative armor/name) and the such. Its a Final fantasy game - of course there will be birdies.

They did say that they wanted to do something "new" with chocobos but there's a person in town with a chocobo next to her that says something like "I can't rent out chocobos right now because such and such a monster is eating them". That probably wasn't it exactly but that's the general idea. I'm guessing there will be some sort of quest involved to unlock it. Probably not as tedious as the FFXI quest though...think it should just be a quest to kill something.

Quests to kill things tend to be my favorite...but a quest go eat a Chocobo would be much better.

I'm kinda hoping they will let us have our own Chocobo like in XI...but without all the upkeep responsibilities. One of the trailers showed some Lalafell hopping on Chocos as if if they were summoned...

Ooh, maybe a quest to kill the Chocobo Eater.

That was a thing in a previous FF, right? FFX I think.

I just really hope we get our own chocobos that we can call whenever we want. Renting them was bootsy.

no chocobo whistle with finite charges either

That's what should happen when we call it. It phases in from the distance and we mount it as it runs by. Bam! you're on your way to meet your homies for some dragon slaying.
