    Not sure if either of these are in Vanilla, haven't played enough to know about it but the game should definitely have it. There should be a farm like the one from FFVII where you can keep Chocobos and you can go out in the wild and either battle Chocobos or find them enclosed by hostile mobs that when you kill them you get the option to mount the Chocobo and take it back to your stables to which you can then breed them with nuts, you of course have all the different colours to show there rarity. Yellow-Green/Blue-Black-Gold

    From then on you could just train them by doing daily quests/feeding them to boost there stats to which you can race them to win prizes or bet on them if you dont feel like racing :D As ive wrote this I also just realised that a Chocobo hot and cold game from Final Fantasy IX could work perfectly, I'd love to see these ideas in ARR!

    True lover of the FF series I bet! Good to see that. :)
    Although it would be a great implementation, I think it's rather hard to realise for the producers to make that. But who knows, in the future, it's quite possible.
    FFXI has it, so FFXIV:ARR can definetly aswell.

    I've never played any of the Final Fantasies to experience that, but I think that would be a great addition to FFXIV.

    Reminds me of how many times I reset my Playstation as a kid to get the illusive black chocobo, always got the gold first try /facepalm.

    I don't know how they could implement racing but within an MMO I'm sure the possibilities could be endless. PVP chocobo racing?! Even Gil bets on the winners or items obtained only through chocobo racing? Imagine a whole Gold Saucer type foundation in this game, ahh now im day-dreaming. I think this is a great idea and we need to march and picket outside of Yoshi-Ps house until he concurs! Who's with me?!

    I think it would be pretty neat to maybe make it resource based. Possibly raid-encounter drops could help increase your chocobo's stats, or maybe it has to do with their "breed." Rarer breeds will be harder to find, harder to breed, and harder to maintain - but the stat ceiling with be worth it. I don't know, but I think something like this could be really interesting if they took the time to really give it the love it would require.

    It just reminds me of the amazing system that Star Wars Galaxies had with Creature Handler and Bio-engineer. The ability to splice together genes of an animal and create one from scratch based on the quality of materials collected was astounding. Something like this would be cool in FFXIV as well. I just had a nerd-flash of seeing player-raised Chocobo farms where people have it down to a number how to make the best of the best. I think that if the game allowed it to be completely random, then the economy of the races would dwindle, but if you could let players have power, much like they did in Star Wars Galaxies, it would result in a fantastic community effort that really makes people seek out the best.

    PS: An example of my last point would be Armor in SWG. You could make armor yourself by becoming an Armor-smith, but on my server, Flurry, there was one guy who was the best. He ran every other distributor into the ground and I remember buying a set from his weekly. He had the best stats, tons of variety in stat-based selection, and just had a whole lot to offer. This was due to S.O.E. giving the player full reign of the possibilities, and he earned to many credits that he maxed out 6 different accounts.

    I doubt we will be seeing anything this advanced at launch or even in the first expansion, but maybe one day if the player base keeps on about it.

    Final Fantasy XIV ARR will have housing and you'll be able to build chocobos stables ;) You'll be able to raise and breed your chocobo ^^

    I enjoyed the chocobo breeding in FF7 very much. The chocobo breeding in XI was very disatisfying. No matter how well I took care of my Chocobo, it seemed to hate me lol I hope breeding in XIV is similar to FF7.

    Like I said before, I don't speak a wonderful english and sometimes when I can't find my words I use a translator

    That's why "élevage de chocobo" become "breeding of chocobo"

    There is no evil intention from me *blush*

    I'm sorry

    PVP doesn't always have to mean we fight other players ;) . With chocobo racing, our chocobos will battle it out or race:woot:

    The way things seem to be headed, I definitely think chocobos are going to receive more attention than they did in, say, FFXI. The main thing I would like to see in the game is a really rewarding reason for chocobo breeding. In XI, as I recall, it cost a LOT of gil in order to raise a 'perfect' chocobo... but there wasn't really much point, other than the showing off factor, because you couldn't raise it to be faster than a rental chocobo anyway.

    I do seem to recall that chocobo digging could be profitable, but again, it cost a lot of gil and effort. It was rare to see someone who was actually willing to put in the work to raise a digger. The rewards just weren't high enough for the effort. So, I hope to see breeding made more 'friendly' in ARR. After the initial interest wore off in XI, chocobo breeding was dead and unfortunately quite worthless, which I thought was depressing.
