In-Game Text


Speak with Brutus and you enter a cutscene in which Brutus talks to you about the Wild Chocobos that used to roam La Theine Plateau. At some point duyring the cutscene you will be given the option to either set a Chocobo free or not to. At this point select "Set the Chocobo free", the Chocobo will then proceed to run off. Brutus now turnds around to see that a Chocobo is missing and will then proceed to ask you to go and find it. Head out to La Theine Plateau and proceed to the JUNCTION (D-4) (D-5) and (E-5). Here you will find some "Chocobo Tracks". Select this to receive another cutscene where you will witness two Chocobos meeting on a hill. You then see yourself run up and walk away with one of them. Once the cutscene is over return to Brutus at the Upper Jeuno Chocobo Stables. You will get another cutscene here where Brutus will thank you, but tell that the Chocobo has been acting strangely. Jantileon from the San d'Orian Chocobo stables will appear and announce that the Vana'diel Chocobo Society will be having a meeting and that Brutus should attend. Hantileon now leaves and Brutus asks you to go to the meeting as well. Head over to the San d'Orian Chocobo Stables and speak with Hantileon (I-11). Here another cutscene will take place. During this cutscene the behaviour of the Chocobo that you brought back to Jeuno and a similar one in San d'Oria are discussed. After a load of talking you are asked your opinion and are given 3 answers to chose from:

-Return the chocobos to the wild -Give the chocobos a rest -Reform the chocobo raising system

I ended up choosing all three answers randomnly, after each answer the other members of the society will disagree with you and once again ask for your opinion, after selecting each answer (I selected them in no particular order) they will ask you for the fourth time what your opinion is you will be given just one option "Bring the Chocobos together". The council then agrees with you. Once the cutscene is over return to Brutus in Upper Jeuno. Speak with him again and you will be greeted with another cutscene where Hantileon will arrive with his misbehaving Chocobo. The two Chocobos now start running around in circles with many a Kweh!!. I ended up waiting one game day and zoning before I received the last cutscene with Brutus. During this last cutscene Brutus shares with you the most recent meeting of the Vana'diel Chocobo Society where they all agree to allow adventurers to participate in Chocobo Raising. Brutus will now proceed to give you a Chocobo egg. You are now ready to start raising your very own Chocobo.

cant find tracks

I have looked and looked and looked in LaTheine and I have yet to even see those tracks. I've gone around and around that pit. I've checked every online walk through and I'm still stuck. Dose anyone know what I might be doing wrong. I even went back and talked to Brutus again.

Post edit: My bad I was looking in the wrong place >.< ignore me. lol

cant find tracks

when they say the 2 coordinates(d-4/d-5 and e-5) look on the map where the border lines of those 2 coordinates meet, u'll find the tracks if you keep pressing 0 on the number pad. They're at the base of the mountain if that helps any.
Get this AND the chocobo License Quest!

If you talked and recieved THIS quest from Brutus and keep trying and don't recieve the actual Chocobo quest.

Talk to the Chocobo next to Oskar, and then talk to Oskar, and then to the Chocobo again, and then to Brutus. Doing this allows Brutus to ask if you wish to ride chocobos, thus activating the Chocobo License quest.

1. Wait one game day. (Less than one hour.)

2. Zone.

It's in the quest description, and yet people overlook it.

Chocobo Wounds

If you get this quest instead of the chocobo wounds quest, just wait a Vana'diel day and talk to Brutus again, maybe after talking to the chocobo in the corner, and Oskar, and maybe Shalott too.
But just give it a day and you should be able to take up the chocobo wounds quest.
Wanted Choco Wounds quest, got this one....

Is it possible to leave this quest unfinished and still be given the Chocobos Wounds quest? I went to the stables to get my choco license and ended up with this one instead. Thanks-

you dont get a new color for sure. The choco i got was plain yellow, and a waste of my time, as i had a black one. I wanted red tho. I feel horrible for letting my other one go for this ;;.
