So random thought, with a little bit of reason behind it. The dev team has stated that (not exact words for you quote *****) that they want to impliment chocobos in a different way. I wonder if there could/would be a form of mounted combat? We already have cavalry gear... But nothing to ride on!!! Post your thoughts/ideas on how a mounted system could work. Open ended here, and I know the first idea that comes up is gonna get flamed by somebody. But lets hear some interesting thoughts.

mounted combat. that would be really awesome on this game with the graphics.. anyway i can see it being in a version of PvP but they couldnt put it in regular battle unless they issued u a chocobo that could be knocked unconscious or made one like the friend u could summon in ffxi. it would be unfair to just hit and run monsters that are 50+ an level up. but a great idea lol.
btw archer+mounter combat = pwn

I hope not. It's just not very Final Fantasy-ish to me.

Neither was an MMO.

Final Fantasy XI is an MMO, and is plenty FF-ish.

back on topic?

Here is an idea. Mounted combat would have to have major advantages to make it useful, but major disadvantages to not make it OP. One would think speed, but the fact that there is currently no advantage to really moving at all in combat, that wouldn't fit very well. IF I had any say in the matter, this is what I would do:

Gladiator: Increased Emnity, Decreased Blocking
Marauder: Larger AOE/perma steadfast, reduced attack power
Lancer: Increased Damage while moving, reduced stamina regeneration
Archer: Increased attack power/range, decreased accuracy
Pug: sh*t, didnt think about this when i started typing... Insert thoughts here...
Thm: Increased magic potency, Decreased AoE cone
Con: Increased AoE circle, Decreased magic potency

Just an example. Would be really cool if they would give us SOMETHING to do with chocobo other than ride them. My friend Drogyn Battlebrand could probably think of a few inappropriate uses, but I hope it involves combat.

Obviously, pugilist would gain KICK ATTACKS while riding!

Optionally, we could punch the chocobo and send it pecking our foes in a crazed/frightened state.

There's a precedence for it...

If you look at the E3 FFXIII-2 trailer, you'll see Lightning doing mounted combat from her Odin horse. In FFXIII, many of the Eidolons were mounted for their final combat sequences. In FFX-2, Rikku could summon a machina which she rode and fought with. In FFVII, there's an escape scene where Cloud mounts a motorcycle and you direct him to fend off people chasing his friend's escape vehicle with his sword. In FFVI, there are times you can mount and fight with Magitek Armor units. In Final Fantasy Tactics games, you can mount chocobos and fight from its back.

Feel better? =D

Well, we've been waiting for simple mounts for more than 9 months now.
I guess we would get mounted combat in, about, 2014.

Is the only precedence really from a DS sequel to a GBA Final Fantasy spin-off? Because that's a rather shaky foundation for an appeal. XD

after putting much thought into this i only came out with a couple ideas.

a) special events that involve chase/attacking mobs that are large and run/fly fast such as dragons. in which throwing/ranged attacks would stop the enemy after time... hop off mount... fight.... call mount back and give chase.

b) class related.

those are my thoughts.

Unfortunately, I don't make the rules, sorry. This is handed down from Sage Sundi himself (although he was under the authority of Tanaka at the time, so I'm not sure if the "Chocobo Knight Neutrality Act" of 2007 still stands)... best to check with a lawyer, actually.

In FFX the Crusaders are Chocobo Knights, though most died with one blast of Sin awesomeness.

New use for Chocobo in combat: Chocobo as new playable race. All the old playable races are Chocobo's mount. Problem solved!

Just give me some magitek armor to ride, forget the chocobo.

They already have hints at a steampunk style going on, if they just expanded on that I'd be very pleased.
