All about Chocobos in FFXV! Before you ask… Yes it’s worth it. Travelling by Chocobo beats walking any day. Once it’s level 10, and unlock Sylkis Greens? They’re faster than Regalia, it feels. haha.

Unlocking Chocobos should be done ASAP – the quest triggers upon entering Duscae for the first time. But I’m sure your here for other questions…

Before you ask – the Chocobo combat skills suck. Sadly. For the purposes of travel, Level 9 Chocobo seems to be enough. Trust me, just summon your Chocobo instead of walking. At L10 with Sylkis Greens… you’ll see… Speaking of which…

Wiz Chocobo Sidequests – Rewards & Notes

Wiz Chocobo sidequests rewards, and are they worth it? Long story short, yes. I assumed these sidequests won’t amount to anything – but If I had a chance to turn back time, I would do them DURING the main story! Sylkis Greens are that good.

These sidequests begin at Wiz Chocobo Post, with the NPC Wiz (Who would have thought?)

Aside from the unlocking quest with the one-eyed Behemoth, these quests are pretty straightforward and require no guidance.

Chocobo Races

As far as I know they only give medals, which are pretty useless customization options.

Chocobo Races, Course & Reward
Course Reward
Prompto Rounsey Medal
Gladiolus Destrier Medal
Chocobo Hoops: Grange Gallop Short Course Medal
Ignis Courser Medal
Full Filed Fat Chocobo Medal
Chocobo Hoops: Rocky Road Long Course Medal
Iris Jennet Medal
Default free medal: Replica Medal
Get all medals: Jockey Master Medal

How to beat Iris in Chocobo Races!? Sprint lasts longer than the drained stamina bar in the races – you have to visually confirm (or “feel”) when you slow down before pressing sprint again. You should overtake her by the final turn and barely win in most cases.
