I would assume once they give us other forms of transportation...teleporting and anima will be removed. Going anywhere, whenever you want, dilutes the game a bit.

Eh? People made a tidy profit as Tele-Taxis in XI long after Airships and Chocobos
I'm not sure how they'll handle it either, 'cause even if they add Chocobos and Airships tomorrow, I don't think I'd use them at all.
I've already got enough anima to go everywhere I need to go, and I hover between 35-60 anima doing group leves every reset.
I guess having more options is always nice, but with the current anima regeneration rate I can't see myself using anything else, and I already do very little running to get from A to B.
The teleport shouts in XI worked 'cause you couldn't change your job in the field, and only access to WHM36+ spells would let you teleport.
Would any of you use Chocobos on a regular basis if you could use them right now?
Airships are a little easier since you can just board in town (or at the random airship stands on the world map) and go afk for 10mins, but if they're not changing anima costs in any way, I'm more or less set already.
I'm not complaining- it's convenient to be able to move this quickly. I do miss having to run through the scenery once in a while though. And home points being few and far between added a sense of danger for me ._.; (and gave Raise a purpose!).
