Final Fantasy XIV Patch 2.3 Brings Chocobo Stables, Raise Your Own Feathered Companions
Square Enix’s rebooted MMO, Final Fantasy XIV recently got update to version 2.3. As typical of any MMO update, many bugs fixes and tweaks are in place but the real addition to the game is the ability to raise your own personal Chocobos.
Raising these feathered companions which can also be used as mounts is explained in detail on the game’s official website.
A player needs to be atleast level 30 and must have completed the Bird In Hand and My Fiesty Little Chocobo quests in order to access Chocobo stables before they can raise their own feathered beasts (cute beasts though).
Players will also need to be part of a Free Company (the game’s version of guilds) which owns an estate (you need grounds to raise animals of course). Chocobo stables can be purchased from any housing merchant in a residential area and placed in the estate.
Once the stable is in place, all the members of the Free Company can use the space to raise their Chocobos. While stabled, Chocobos cannot be summoned as mounts or in battle.
Chocobos can be trained once per hour and require a reward of one of the following: Krakka Root / Curiel Root / Sylkis Bud / Mimett Gourd / Tantalplant / Pahsana Fruit / Thavnairian Onion. Giving it the Thavnairian Onion will allow it to be trained even after it’s reached the level cap.
