When/if they open up Ishgard, they should have an arena where you can joust on chocobos. Make it so you can select to fight against another person (appease the PVP crowd) or follow a storyline where you joust against NPCs. Whenever you win, you are awarded gil and chocobo points that can be redeemed for certain items. That is all.

Sounds like a really fun idea, also gladiator battles. "are you not entertained!!!" archery competitions, pugilist boxing matches. I would go watch the top 2 on the server duke it out and hope the kind emperor passes out bread to the crowd.

Yeah they already have the coliseum for that and the Gla rank 20 quest suggests it may be feasible

Sounds like a fun idea! You might want to post it in the feedback forum too. Who knows, your idea might just come true in the expansion pack!

That and allow players to enter the gladiator arena to pvp (FFXIV wouldn't work with open world pvp but an arena based pvp would be fun)

Sounds like chocobo racing and we all know how well that idea took off...

*crickets*

Anyway if it was soloable or happening every 6hrs so that there wasn't a lack of participants that would be cool. Or race against NPC's, time or gulls like in X.

Like Ballista, you mean? :P

EDIT: To clarify, while I don't like PvP, I'm not against implementing it in a PvP specific area, I'm just saying that putting it on a timed schedule is a bad idea. That's why Ballista wasn't as popular as it could have been; if people want to do PvP, they usually want to do it "now", not at a scheduled time.

Think if they were gonna do PVP they should put it in the glad arena, where its always going on at all times, and maybe an instanced pvp somewhere, but definitely shouldn't go WoW style with PVP gear, and battlegrounds, and rankings, and crap. Not the right game for it but some friendly competition, even if to test out builds, or to roleplay scenarios, would be cool.

Yeah i already submitted this idea awhile ago.

Not just jousting in town though.
I wanna ride all over and have real armor and stats for our birds.


It is one way to keep the final fantasy theme while making the game substantially different and attracting its player base.

Yeah, because adding in chocobo raising somehow makes things "substantially different" and attracts a large playerbase. This idea reads like one of those three-step memes whose intermediary step reads "???" and yet it concludes by bringing about the desired result.

I would love for the gladiator cap 50 mission to be defeating another gladiator doing the mission in the arena, 1v1. Let us retry once a day, or once every few hours and have the game pair us up randomly so no deals can be done...
