How can I get a mount?

Mounts can be acquired through various quests and in-game events, but the ability to use them must first be unlocked by reaching level 20, joining a Grand Company, and acquiring a personal chocobo.

Acquiring a Personal Chocobo

* If you have already joined a Grand Company, proceed to "Speak with the company commander."

Select a Grand Company

Upon reaching level 20, you will be able to accept one of three main scenario quests─The Company You Keep (Twin Adder), The Company You Keep (Maelstrom), or The Company You Keep (Immortal Flames). The quest you accept will determine which of the three Grand Companies you join.

Join a Grand Company

Depending on the initial Grand Company quest completed, you will be able to proceed to one of three quests─Wood's Will Be Done, Till Sea Swallows All, or For Coin and Country. Upon completing one of these three quests, you will become a Grand Company member.

* Completing this quest will also yield a reward of company seals, which is required to obtain a personal chocobo.

Speak with the company commander

After joining a Grand Company, speak with the company commander to receive the quest My Little Chocobo (Twin Adder), My Little Chocobo (Maelstrom), or My Little Chocobo (Immortal Flames) depending on your Grand Company allegiance.

Receive your chocobo whistle
