Rough translation with Google Translate from the Japanese Forum

Original Japanese wrote:

こんにちは。

ペットの実装について吉田Pに聞いてみたところ、2つの方向性を考えているとのことでした。

ひとつは誰もが乗ることのできるチョコボなどを育成するようなコンテンツにおけるペット。
もうひとつが特定のジョブだけが従えることのできるペットです。

この2つはどちらか一方を実装するのではなく、両方とも実装できるように仕様検討を行っているとのことでした。
ただ実装時期はまだまだお知らせできる段階ではないため、まずはパッチ1.19で実装予定のチョコボに跨りつつ、お待ちいただければと思います。

Hello.

P, Yoshida I asked about the implementation of pets, and was looking to the two directions.

One is to develop content in pet chocobo and anyone can ride.
The pet can only be accompanied by one particular job.

Two instead of implementing one or the other, and was considering doing so that you can implement both specifications.

Implementation period is not only still early to know while planning spans chocobos first implemented in the 1.19 patch, I appreciated it and wait.


Anyone able to clarify further? Does it mean we could get the chocobos AND a pet unique to each class?

A Chocobo pet, that all classes will have, and job specific pets that only certain jobs will get.

at least that's how i interpreted,what was said.

The way I read it this is in response to the possibility of pet jobs having Chocobo as a pet....

This way he answers that there are two ways they are thinking of using chocobos, as per 1.19 as a transport, which can be ridden by every class/job.

On the other side they also been considering adding Chocobos to a possible pet class/job which of course would only be available to that class/job.

Just my point of view....

To me it sounds like either "a class that can call and ride chocobo's, or make it so each class can call chocobos on there own accord"

A chocobo class that uses "dig" to level up, an boosting choco speed
&
Every class having a default speed choco

Official English Post.

This seems like a good spot to drop some information that we recently heard from Yoshida... He mentioned that the dev. team is currently thinking about two different approaches.

The first is pet-related content where players can raise chocobos and other mounts that anyone can ride. The second idea is centered around pets that can only be utilized by specific jobs.

However, we won't be picking just one concept to implement. Instead we will be looking into the specifications so that we can implement both. However, as we are not yet at the stage where we can disclose when the implementation timing will be. We hope that the current chocobo implementation planned for 1.19 will hold you all over in the meantime.

I would think chocobos would be the only mounts we'll ever get. Maybe we'll get non-combat pets. As for flying mounts, not a chance.

I'm really curious about these "other mounts" they have mentioned numerous times now will be! I am hoping against hope for a crab I can ride into battle :3

I doubt there will be flying mounts but a black chocobo would be ideal.

I love the fact that we will be able to raise our own chocobos. I hope it's as fun as it was in FFXI, and produces the same great results.

I'm glad that you specified 9. It would fun if you could pass the time playing it for an hour or two when bored, instead of only once per day, like FFXI. And ***** normal random digging.

I remember spending an hour or two a week doing that for months way back. One of my favorite FF mini games.

I hope they bring back the chocobo breeding system from 7 so flying golden chocobos would be available as transportation.

First of all, chocobos will not be implemented through a single update only, but will be implemented through a gradual process of content iteration (excluding Chocobo rentals)

Here is a simplified plan:
1. Calling a personal chocobo
2. Riding a personal chocobo
3. Walking next to a personal chocobo
4. Raising and dressing up a personal chocobo
5. Fighting with the help of a personal chocobo

I created this plan myself, but some features are not possible to implement at this moment. It would take way too long to implement everything at once, so we plan on implementing this bit by bit, starting with numbers 1 and 2. This is the plan for patch 1.19. More details will be revealed later in an upcoming letter.

Regarding pet classes, from summoning pets to taming, we are still in the preliminary planning stages, so we don't know which direction we're going to start with yet. Either way would be fine. We still need to do all the battle-related adjustments, class balance adjustments, and implement the job system first before anything else, so we will be looking at any ideas you have for us.

If cultivation is implemented, I would like to have gardens implemented as well. It would be nice to have a garden in front of your house, so let’s test this out.

I'm all about chocobos...but gardening really got my attention. Also gardens in front of your 'house' sounds even better.

If we are getting 'houses' I hope we get a mail system, too. I'd love to garden though.

Summoning Pets coming??!?!??!?!

(careful, japanese franticness incoming!)

<(o_O)b \(^o^)/ <3 <3 <3~~~!!!!!

Um, definate buy if they bring summoning pets/avatar into the game, I don't care if Smn was a little non-effective at most things in FFXI, this is why I play FF games :o

Woohoo Smn!

And Gardening? Houses? Chocobos? Airships? This game is definately waaaaay more appealing now if they really do input all that :) Really, for me, this is definately the cherry on top.
More sillyness {yes, please}, less serious {All Right!} \(^o^)/

I think it would be cool if they added a quest that once completed unlocked some kind of chocobo breeder/raising class that had abilities related to raising and breeding chocobos. But still be able to ride the chocobo or chocobos as any class. It would be a good way to make money to if someone wanted to raise and breed some of the best chocobos and sell them for a high price.
