    I tried to make mine "Or G" but apparently SE thought ahead for once and disabled it

    I ended up going with Moon Moon

    All of mine have had Wark in the name, Wark Speed is my current and might be my end Chocobo name.

    The R180 bracket turns the races entirely into mario kart. Powerups and punishments everywhere.

    I was curious how you would end up getting the higher tier abilities; being higher pedi/rank/whatever is more sane I guess. My theory was that you could "combine" 2 parents to get to the next tier. Like Choco Dash 1 + Choco Dash 1 = Choco Dash 2. But that seems silly.

    Nope, you randomly earn them upon level up at higher levels if you have the open spot. I've witnessed heavy IV, Choco Reflect III and a few others. I don't have enough MGP to burn on all those lethe waters yet, but if my next bird is stupid good or near-perfect, I may blow it then.

    Side-note, Moon Sailor in R200 is hilarious.

    Just gonna say, don't underestimate cunning. It was the only shit stat on my chocobo(really shit to be fair 139speed,67cunning before feeding) and my chocobo felt terrible, so I fed it some to raise the cunning and suddenly my chocobo, while still not amaze, is waaay better. (cunning still in the tank even with feeding - 83)

    Grats! I spent way too much time with TT getting the 60+ card mark, and once I hit that, finished relic and progressed more on coil, I've finally gotten to mess with my choco. It's up to 32 right now.. 8 more levels until i can do my first breed. Gonna try to hit that over the next few hours D:

    I'll probably take my P8 (still on P7 currently) all the way up to 50 if I can get a perfect 4-star bird to farm for tier III skills. Gonna try to find the exact level that you start learning em (not including resists, that go all the way up to Tier V). I'd like to learn exactly when my bird is eligible to learn Dash III.

    Edit: Going to lethe water every level until I get dash II. Will post findings:

    Rank 28: Choco Reflect II.
    Rank 29: Choco Dash II!

    I fucking beat Joe in the R220! Granted, I got second, but I still beat Joe! You wanna talk speed? This dude -is- speed.

    Edit:



    You don't outrace Joe. You outlast Joe. You weather the Toho Fuhai maelstrom. Barely.

    When breeding, the covering letter you use has no impact right? So when I come to breed my first chocobo either today or tomorrow (Rank 31 now), what covering should I get? Just a 1 or 2?

    It has an impact. The higher the covering, the higher levels of abilities the other chocobo will have. I'm not 100% on the random attribute side of it, though. While I have seen a friend get a P9 that had 4/4/3/3/4 and 3/3/4/4/4, I've gotten plenty of P9s that had 1/2/4/3/2 and 2/1/13/5, which is to say, complete shit.

    Personally I did the "2 pedigree higher than your current" strat which, while still random, didn't blow my budget when I wasn't making a lot of MGP with my earlier birds anyway. Lets not talk about the 40kMGP I spent on buying P9's to breed my P8...

    Is your rating just your lowest stat? Main reason I ask is because that's been consistent with my choco so far.

    Also is Sagoli the fastest race as that's what I've been spamming. Not bothered with the other courses yet (outside of 1 attempt)

    Rating is a combination of current stats and pedigree. That consistency will change. My level 3 bird has 56 rating right now as a P8. He's surpassing the rating of some P3's I know that are 25+ levels into their birds.

    Yeah but I mean like my Rating right now is 44 and my Cunning is my lowest stat at 44. At R39/40/41/42/43 cunning has always been equal to my rating and was my lowest stat. I didn't pay attention before that though.

    EDIT: Levelled up again and went to R45, cunning also 45. May be just coincidental though

    Coincidental. You probably have a low pedigree bird and just aren't gaining enough stats to jump your rating by more than one.

    I'm kind of upset that placing higher ranks in races doesn't also help play some sort of influence in jumping your birds rank growth.
