    Chocobo Raising

    I have a sense for knowing when the pol website gets updated :x

    Chocobo Raising(06/01/2006)

    The FINAL FANTASY XI development team has finally addressed everyone’s cries for a system to raise their own personal chocobos. As announced at the FINAL FANTASY XI Fan Festival 2006 in Santa Monica, this new feature will be introduced in the next version update!

    Raising Your Chocobo
    [Basic Concept]
    Think of chocobo raising as an upgraded version of gardening. You can raise a chocobo by taking care of it for a minimal amount of time each day over a span of roughly 1-3 months, so even players with little time can enjoy this feature. Your chocobo may come in handy when it is fully grown!

    [Chocobo Eggs]
    Your first step is to get hold of a chocobo egg. Each egg is encoded with its own specific genetic information, and some players may come across an extremely rare variety…

    [Caring For Your Chocobo]
    You must work together with the chocobo stable employees in order to properly care for your chocobo. Feeding your chocobo and spending a bit of time with it each day will gradually build trust. You will be amazed at how your chocobo grows!

    Chocobo Variety
    Chocobos differ based on their color and type…and possibly more. Naming will be handled in the same way that dragoons and puppetmasters select their wyvern or automaton’s name, but there will be more options than ever before!

    Matchmaking
    Match up your chocobo with your friend’s chocobo and see what happens. If the match is right, you could end up with a new baby chocobo!

    Scores of other exciting features are scheduled to be added in the next version update, so keep checking the main site for more information in the next few days!
    http://www.playonline.com/ff11us/topics/060601.html

    The naming part disappoints me. So who wants to bet what type of names we'll have this time? I'm thinking either German or Spanish.

    And by sellable I mean I can sell them at outrageous prices. Wamp Cacoons were fun to sell for a mil each.

    oh i got what you meant lol

    id rather actually work for the eggs than just needing a big bank account thats all.

    ya ffxi has its problems but the system obviously works. its like american politics, if you break down all its pieces its completely fucked. but in its chaos and retardation as a whole its molded itself into a smoothly ran machine.

    This is fucking awesome.

    If you can't get over it, just quit already.

    Bitching about all level content is gay, despite this being an end-game forum.

End game is a crowded mess, and Chains of Promathia offered nothing of realistic value considering the effort we made them all put in. What do we do?"

    Win.
    Anyone can make a chocobo a turbo-choco with the click of a mouse button and FleeTool.

    Too bad we can't ride them whenever we want. That would be better.

    This is a fantastic addition to the game. I can't wait to...wait a second, ONE TO THREE MONTHS? What the fuck? It seems as though they've moved beyond the idea of a "time sink" and gone straight for a "money sink".

    What if you can't log on to feed your chocobo for a few days in the second week of month #3? Does all that time get flushed down the drain?

    I think this sounds kind of neat

    You've got to admit that chocobo raising > fish ranking.

    your chocobo dies, you then have to clean up the corpse (which SE turned into a system like fishing where you sweep a broom around and have to face fatigue), then after you go to court for negligence... you can buy a new egg but need to inform everyone raising eggs manually with tells how you could possibly be a repeat choc-a-cide offender as per Jaime's Law.

    im assuming itd be like gardening, your plant dies so maybe your affinity with the choco resets to like lv1 or something

    If you starve your Chocobo the next time you go to see it it'll hit you in the head with a 2x4 and eat you.

    Feels kinda gimicky...Seriously gonna have to see more before I get my hopes up. I'm expecting this next update to blow me away, because seriously ToAU is SOOO fucking empty right now, after capping merits and killing Cerberus for the 10th time, I finally realize just how little was added in this expansion.
