Help nurse the chocobo back to health. It seems to have suffered both mentally and physically. Gausebit wildgrass may do the trick.


The first time you talk to Brutus, he will give you the quest "Chocobo on the Loose!" After watching the cutscene, talk to him again to get the quest "Chocobo's Wounds."

You absolutely MUST be at least level 20 to do this quest. Anyone who tells you otherwise is mistaken. Brutus will not give you the quest if your current job level is lower than 20.

After talking to Brutus (or before, whatever), you need to get four clumps of Gausebit Wildgrass. You will try and feed the sick chocobo the grass. You can get the grass by killing Wadi Hares in Dangruf Wadi, or Crane Flies in Meriphataud Mountains. You can also buy Gausebit Wildgrass off of the Auction House. It is listed under Weapons -> Ammo & Misc -> Pet Items. (Yes, Chocobo food is listed under the Weapons category. -_-)

Many players often get confused and think that you're supposed to feed the chocobo Gysahl Greens instead of Gausebit Wildgrass. This is wrong. Gysahl Greens will not work. You have to feed the chocobo Gausebit Wildgrass.

The quest can take up to six real world hours to complete. You must feed (or attempt to feed) one clump of Gausebit Wildgrass to the Chocobo every game day (one game day is equal to about one hour in real life). If you feed one clump at the end of a game day, you do not have to wait a full hour to feed the next clump. You only need to wait until the next game day. However, if you feed a clump at the beginning of a game day, then you WILL have to wait a full hour, since you will have to wait for the next game day before you can attempt to feed the Chocobo the next clump of grass.

In total, you must attempt to feed the Chocobo six times. However, you will only need four clumps of grass because the Chocobo will refuse your first two attempts.

Day 1 - The Chocobo rejects the food and refuses to eat.

Day 2 - The Chocobo rejects again (1 real hour later).

Day 3 - The Chocobo will accept this time (1 real hour later).

Day 4 - The Chocobo eats again (1 real hour later).

Day 5 - The Chocobo will eat again (1 real hour later).

Day 6 - The Chocobo will eat for the final time and you will get the license.

You do not have to be logged in every hour to do this quest, and they do not have to be consecutive hours, either. In other words, you can feed the chocobo once, then log off for several hours, then come back and feed the next clump of grass. Also, you cannot go up and continuously try to feed all four clumps of grass to the chocobo at once. You must wait at least one real-life hour (or until the next game day) between each feeding attempt.

what's the safest way to get from san d'oria to jueno to do the chocobo quest?
# Nov 24 2003 at 9:54 PM Rating: Decent
the grass drops in around 1:10 hares. Like the post below says you take 2 rights at the T junctions to get to the gyser, stand on it and it will take you up. I would recommend going at lvl 20 as the creatures all chain agro there. In the area around I-5 they are in abundance though, there are lots of goblins around as well however. Everything in this area cons easy as well.

Here are some details that have been asked for quite a bit.

You must be level 20 to do the quest.
You must be level 20 on your current main job to ride a chocobo.
You can only give the chocobo one grass per game day. A game day lasts 1 hour of real time. You do not have to turn them in on consecutive days. This means if you turn one in just before midnight, you can turn another in just after.
In Dangruf Wadi, you can ride the water spouts to the top of the walls.
The Wadi Hares conned Easy to me at level 20. Drop rate on grasses seemed to be roughly 1 in 3-4.

Or do I have to make time for 6 hours

The quest
# Nov 11 2003 at 3:53 PM Rating: Good
The quest takes six real world hours to complete.
You must posses 4 Gaussebit Grass.
On the first Vanadiel day you attempt to feed the chocobo and he does not take.
On the second Vanadiel day the chocobo will reject again (1 real hour later)
On the third day the Chocobo will eat one grass (1 real hour later)
On the fourth day it eats again (1 real hour later)
On the fifth day it will eat again (1 real hour later)
On the sixth and final day it will eat again and you will get the liscence.

You do not have to be logged in every hour to do this quest, they do not have to be consecutive hours either.
In other words you can not go up and continously try to feed all four grass to the chocobo.

Just a quick clarification here.

You don't need to wait a full real world hour between feedings so long as the game day changes. For example, my group arrived in Jeuno and did the first feeding at about 23:00. One game hour later, at 0:00, the game day changed and we were able to attempt another feeding.
Minimum level

The minimum level is 20 for sure.

The level to acquire teh license is 20. You need 4 Grass and need to trade it them one by one every hour I believe.
# Nov 10 2003 at 6:09 AM Rating: Default
it says you need to be a minimum level AND have the license.
the quest is to get the license, not to ride the chocobo.
