Chocobo Update

August 19, 2009

Chocobo Diary

A little chick update for you all, since its now day 14. I’ve actually moved onto Vomp Carrots x3 per day now, instead of Carrot Paste. This isn’t for any other reason than.. I ran out of Paste. So yeah.

Her statistics look different too:

Day 14

Only a fast update for tonight I’m afraid its 3:24AM – we just did Dynamis San d’Oria, so I’m pretty tired! I’m sorry!


10,000 hits! Thank you!


Desires of Emptiness

August 15, 2009

Well, a few days ago we got Sacrarium done as you probably guessed by my previous post. While EXPing last night, we got asked if we wanted to do Vahzl.

Battlefield Record 1

Which we did.  I went on SMN to this fight – I had some fun with Astral Flow towards the end of course, but.. The worse part about this mission for me (and others I’m guessing) was the 3rd and final boss as you climb. Ponderer. We got him down to 1% at the first try before he wiped us. Then 3% the second try. The third was 25% or something like that.. We allianced with the other group who were doing Promyvion-Vahzl on this point. Even allianced we wiped on the first try! Though we finally got him down after much huffing and puffing, and entered the BCNM. That was the part I’d been dreading most of the run.

It went perfectly. Not one death, and noone panicked.. So I was pretty amazed. It was that fight I’d figured we’d wipe on, but no. So thats Promyvion-Vahzl done and dusted.. We just did the cutscenes for the Three Paths, so hopefully we’ll get them knocked out soon enough. Lots of CoP progress I didn’t expect this week!

BRD and MNK hit 67 last night, too – not too far to go now, and we’re both pretty psyched about them getting 75.. So hopefully not much longer. I’m enjoying BRD still, which is the main thing – I’m even looking forward to merits, which is pretty rare for me. I’m not sure why since BRD in merits is heralded as a nightmare, but.. I am. I should look up what merits I need and where really. Of course I need to get more gil together, but me, Shiz and Findy – sometimes with Mitsu when she can come along, all do ISNM’s.. So maybe luck will shine on me when I next go.

Chocobo Diary

Day 10! Sweet Bonbon is growing up so fast. I’ve been staying on Chocobo Paste and walking her.. And the stats changed a little bit this morning. Just a litle update on my chick today, but I figured I’d post her stats.

Choco Stats, day 10

The Sacrarium

August 12, 2009

After spending some time on BRD and MNK (66), we decided to put some work into CoP.. We’d been sat on The Sacrarium mission for a long time. It seemed to be in the middle of the missions everyone shouted for – every time I saw someone shout, we were either about to log off or in the middle of something else.. So we pretty much jumped on the offer today.

Sacrarium 1

Off we trooped into that dratted maze. What a nightmare that place is.. Our party leader hooked us up with some people doing the Swift Belt fight (though it was simply because the leader and his friend were too lazy to get keys I think) and we eventually got things done. Eventually being the operative word. First, we spawned the Professor – and only 3/6 members were present. So we died.

We were always going to be 5/6, because our WAR decided to stay sat behind the door since it needed unlocking.. But we tagged along with the Swift Belt group for the longest time. Yes, people did start moaning.. But only because the ‘leader’ wouldn’t talk to us. Seems he knew someone in the Belt group – so of course, us mere social LS wearing mortals were left in the dark about what was happening. We even did two Swift Belt fights – of course, our group wasn’t allowed to lot the Codex’s even if we killed the mob that dropped them. Seemed unfair to me, but trying to argue with some folks about things like that is like plaiting fog.

We got there in the end, which is fabulous – I’m super grateful to Jacko for sticking it out. Thank you!

Sacrarium 3

Yay for Promyvion-Vahzl.. Right..? Right..?! Ha – no, we pretty much dread the next missions.. Though we are one step closer to Sea Access, which is all good I guess. Findy was supposed to go for an O-Hat run today, but it seems like its fallen through.. Its a shame, because he’s had the Cluster a long while now and he really needs that item for his MNK.

Fin’s been leveling his Woodworking for a while now – and of course, I’ve been looking after SweetBonbon. My choco-chick. I did manage to plant some Wildgrass Seeds today – a little late, but we’ll see how it goes.

Chocobo DiaryI’ve been keeping her on Carrot Paste – I’ve been warned against it, but.. I had some, so I thought I’d give it a go. Keeping her on walks through the day and then walking her a few times when I get on to check over her, she hasn’t had any major stat increases just yet. I am however, doing Kamp Kweh with DaringSpirit – Findy’s choco-chick. Overall, Bonbon has become more patient.. But thats all. Oh well, I always knew there would be plenty of blood, sweat and tears involved with raising my own little feathered ball of love.

Sunny side up?

Chocobo Diary

My Chocobo is still in its egg. Still. But I did make sure I sat down earlier, and checked it 100 times. I actually tallied it up as I checked, just to make sure. So hopefully when it hatches, it loves me. I’m actually going by this guide which Fin found. I’m not really sure on what kind of bird I want to raise – I’d say racer, but he puts me off a little.

Raising a racing Chocobo involves feeding heaping supplies of Vomp Carrots, taking it for many many walks, and pretty much requires you to breed it from 2 parents with canter and gallop, as having level 1 discernment makes it impossible to learn these abilities.

There is an expensive and hard way to learn an ability with your bird, but we’ll cover that at day 50.

My poor egg came from an ISNM, but I suppose all Chocobo start off somewhere. Maybe I can pack it off on a honeymoon with one of my friends birds when he/she is old enough. Regardless, I’ll still follow his advice and feed my little chick lots of Vomp Carrots (I can actually make the paste, so I’m debating whether to make that now or not..) and I’ll put some Wildgrass Seeds in my MH so by the time they can be harvested – my Chocobo could probably eat them.

All you can do is wait and watch over the egg. It is highly suggested you watch over it a total of 100 times by day 4 so the chick hatches with capped affection.

Well, that’s done for me. I guess all I gotta do now is check over it a few times a day and wait for it to hatch! The next stage for him/her, is;

Keep your chick on Walk Through Town care plan for the entire two weeks straight. Feed it 3 Vomp Carrots every day, and if you do it right, you will have a high chance of obtaining a red or blue bird, possibly black

So I really, really need to start stocking up on the Vomp Carrots!

A Tough Nut to Crack

August 4, 2009

Did some ISNM’s for Fin today, for his Strike Subligar. Guess what dropped on my go?


Congratulations Finny! Just remember I passed on that juicy amount of gil next time you pick on me for not having any. Though I still made a nice amount, to be fair.. And a Chocobo Egg. That means..

Header Chocobo

A new feature on Soulvoice. My own little Chocobo, and their journey. Mostly so I can have a look back and see what I did, and just what I’m doing wrong or right.. Today I handed the egg in, so the diary begins.

Things just got better!

Sorry the pictures dark! Yep – Kally got her Chocobo, after the tedious quest. We tried farming up the Gausebit wildgrass but it didn’t go so well. We’re going to fish later, and aim for 22 after we’ve updated some of our gear, which means 8 levels till Bard.
