I really like this, there are so many possibilities within the chocobo species, why not use them? Rather than having 100 mounts we never useTo be more on the point I'd rather have more customization to a chocobo mount than I would have 100's of generic mounts that do the same thing with a different skin. Colour, Barding,Bbreeding differences (Tails, Beak, Feathers) would go hundreds of times farther in my opinion than just slapping us on monsters that we should be killing instead of riding.
I'm for the idea of original mounts I think. Like the Magitek armor (original to FF). I don't really like converting mobs to mounts but that's my personal opinion. Seems to take away from the mobs when I just look at it thinking "I've rode your kind before". I did use the goobbue and liked it but since I got my chocobo I haven't used it again. Breeding, barding, customization to the chocobos, I am all for it (just don't make it lame)!
I think people forget that the staples of the series (chocobos, Cid, moogles, etc) weren't always with us. I'm glad SE is looking for new ways to do things. It keeps the series fresh. I'm glad they didn't say "What? A black, flying chocobo? Chocobos are yellow and ground based only!"
But in that same spirit, I say again that I'd rather not see monster mounts, but rather see all new original beasts that we can ride. Let's create a whole new series staple!
What babydoll said, thou...my Unicorn had to be black,I think others have stated earlier (or myself lol) all the other FF's had tons of different "mounts" or means of travel. I'd like to see the dev team add new stuff...That's what all the old FF's were about, NEW stuff..not reused old content over and over. Yeah it is nice though to have a few old familiar things but new stuff is nice as well!
Personally I want fantasy stuff like a unicorn with wings..lol :X Or maybe can you put the horse like Lightning has in FF13? That would be so cool! Lots and lots of different and NEW stuff ^_^
stolen from "Lich Kings" personal mount collection ofc.
why? cuz Funky needs a funky mount.
- Still thinks his "Go Go Gadget Goobbue" mounts is worth more than Gaths Goobbue mount.

I don't mind non-Chocobo mounts, but first give us different colored Chocobos. That said, don't give us any mounts that are already something in the game. No Eye mounts. No Drake mounts. No Giant Toad mounts. Give us unique things, like the forthcoming Magitek. The wyverns from FFII/FFV. Hell give us a mini-Flammie from SoM. Just no mounts that are just enemies in the game please.
No one wants to ride around on ifrit?
I could see past this mount buisness if we got Beastmaster job that can tame,
rename and ride around on their own pet as a mount companion.
Maybe even sell the charmed pet at a Monster / Pet farm to other players,
Auction style maybe depending on it's rareness.
That would be cool. maybe even add some breeding / upgrade / level up,
customization options to the pet.
Something that many mmo's do NOT have, i see no reason for
FFXIV not to have this or any other new cool things.
If if attracts a bigger player base then hellz ya.
People been complaining long enough about FFXIV's limitations....no point in regretting it now.
Im still waiting for my mail box thou, but im sure i will see it in 2.0,
maybe even my vanity pet will deliver the mail to my funky friends.
We might even get a new DoT (Disciple of Trade) job,
like... Mailman on a funky Dodo delivery mount. (Just an idea...lol)
We need more chaos & mayhem ! (or atleast i need...)
if it means new more mounts someday, bring it!

old quadav... just like they rode my ass in beadeaux.
Which monsters from any of the FF games would you like to see as a mount in the future? Ground or flying mount.
I would like to see Behemoth as an end game rare mount.
Or Even Shiva from XIII
what about you?
Edit: And don't say just chocobos, we already got a mount that isn't that and Yoshi-P confirmed flying mounts and other coming in 2.0 or after. It's already been decided, so if you had to chose, which would it be?
this should be a summon for the summoner class at maximum, and not a mount ;XD
shiva will be a god in FFXIV, and not a mount to ride on ;O
awful if i imagine this.
