It's a grand company mission that is pretty long and has you walking to a lot of places. You pick it up at whichever grand company you want to join.

Can we debate on what Grand Company would be better and why? I have no idea what they are, where they are, or why I would pick one over another. Thanks.

They are still more of a matter of preference.

They are not yet used, and the only major significance in them is where you get your company leves, escorts and such, and where you go to turn in for your points/buy stuff.

Personally I like the Gridania storyline, and just the more natural feel of the area (though it is a little too tunnel like). Since the airship allows you to travel between cities easily enough, there is less reason to just go with Ul'dah because everyone is there (which a lot of people end up settling on).

There is also items offered by Companies that are not available to other Companies so, if you are interested in any of the Company items, you want to make sure you join that one.

Can you not get the Chocobo until level 25? I thought you could join the Grand Companies at 22.

You can join any Grand Company at 22, however, you are not bound to a Grand Company until 25.
There is a Grand Company quest (different one for each GC) that requires you complete ALL entry level Grand Company Quests up to the one where you choose your GC at 25.

Once you have completed them all, then Selected the Grand Company you will be bound to, you can get your Choco Whistle.

And while people may complain it's a lot of running around, I find it to be a lot more fun and interesting than feeding a sick Chocobo for a freaking day!

And it gives you a chance to look at the Grand Companies, and see what they have to offer.

And personally I wish I had spent all my GC Seals from the ones I locked out, since you can potentially never get them back (and if you can at some point, they are only a couple thousand, so they are not even *that* impressive).

If you have time to mess around with the GCs, and want to just rake in the seals before leaving (and well, have a 45+ job) you can even get in a run of Into the Dark for each town before picking your GC. Good exp and seals, pick up some crafting gear or what-not...

But, once you choose your GC, you are stuck with it, and THEN you get your whistle.

And, as an incentive I assume, you can't get your Goobue until you are 30 (but it is not locked to a GC).

I don't mind the running around either, if you're actually reading the story instead of just trying to get it done as fast as possible, it's quite enjoyable. I'm having a lot of fun with the main city missions and side quests too.

http://ffxiv.gamerescape.com/wiki/Chocobo -------- http://ffxiv.gamerescape.com/wiki/Category:Grand_Company_Quests this is where i got good info a few months ago during a GC double point promotion. I got the chocobo without doing the rank 25 4 party quest. (I'll be a private 3rd class with everything rank 50's soon) I think you need to do the 4 party quest to get the 3k points now, plus you get a higher class and missions with more exp..
