Want to get a Chocobo in FFXIV? Chocobos have been an icon of the Final Fantasy series ever since its introduction and in Final Fantasy XIV, Chocobos serve as mounts and loyal combat companions to their Warrior of Light. With their cuteness, speed and fighting capability, you’re going to want to make sure you pick up your own one for your travels throughout Eorzea. Here's what you need to know about how to get a Chocobo in FFXIV.

How To Get A Chocobo In Final Fantasy XIV

In order to get your feathered friend, you’ll need to progress through the main story quests until around level 20+ when you’ve unlocked your Grand Company.

From there you’ll need to complete the quest My Little Chocobo, in which you’ll purchase a Chocobo license from your Grand Company. This unlocks the Chocobo mount for your character.

Once you have your Chocobo and are above level 30 you can unlock it as a combat companion. To do so, you’ll need to complete the quest My Feisty Little Chocobo which can be found in South Shroud. Once complete, you’ll need to use Gysahl Greens to summon your Chocobo for 30 minutes at a time. 

Your Chocobo has its own levelling system. Levelling up your Chocobo is simple, partaking in combat with your Chocobo will grant it experience. With those levels, you can specialise your Chocobo into a tank, healer or DPS via its skill tree. On top of that, unlocking your Chocobo as a companion allows you to raise it in a stable and customise its appearance.

You can raise a Chocobo by placing it into a Chocobo stable at your house/ apartment. This is one of the ways to get experience for your Chocobo as well as change its appearance and colour.
