Chocobo Fodder

  • Mathye is looking for an adventurer who is not afraid of a little hard work.
  • Mathye can sense you are eager to add a few coins to your purse and makes you an offer. He needs a sack of chocobo fodder delivered to the Holy Stables in Foundation. Although he was paid up front, there is an additional charge to be paid upon receiving the fodder. He says you are welcome to whatever money they offer if you deliver the fodder for him. Pick up the sack of chocobo fodder for delivery.
  • You pick up the sack of chocobo fodder. Deliver the sack of chocobo fodder to the Holy Stables in Foundation.
  • You deliver the fodder to a most gracious stable master. She tells you of their work breeding cavalry chocobos. However, when she turns to introduce her assistant, he is nowhere to be found. She suspects he has gone to see the chocobos battle at the Lightfeather Proving Grounds and asks you to call him back to the stables. Head to the Lightfeather Proving Grounds and search for the stable master's assistant.
  • You find Cevilia's assistant at the proving grounds, eagerly awaiting the next match to begin. He speaks to you about his passion for chocobos and he soon reveals he works at the Holy Stables. After telling him that Cevilia is searching for him, he suddenly turns pale and runs out of the proving grounds. Report back to Cevilia and ensure the stableman has returned to work.
  • You return to the Holy Stables, and Cevilia subsequently informs you that the stableman came back not long ago. She goes on to tell you how Ishgard is famous for its chocobos, encouraging you to visit the Lightfeather Proving Grounds to see her birds in action. So long as the realm has need of finely bred chocobos, Cevilia seems determined to supply them.

What's this? Looking for a bit of work, are we? You don't look to be one strapped for coin, but I never turn away anyone looking to make an honest gil.

Would you mind taking a sack of chocobo fodder down to the Holy Stables in Foundation? The stable master Cevilia is expecting a delivery.

She paid me up front, but fear not. That was merely for the fodder. There's still a delivery charge, and you're welcome to it if you take the fodder down there for me.
Quest Accepted
I wouldn't dream of denying willing volunteers the chance to make a few gil. Any payment offered upon delivery is yours to keep.

Welcome to the Holy Stables. What can I do for you?

Oh, the fodder! Splendid. The chocobos are in for a treat.

We specialize in the breeding and training of cavalry chocobos, so they must have nothing but the very best.

They're put through an admittedly harsh training regimen, and only a chocobo of the finest stock can endure it. That's why my assistant and I─

Wait a second. Where is my assistant? <sigh> No doubt he's run off to the Lightfeather Proving Grounds again. Would you be a dear and go get him for me? And tell him to expect chocobo fodder for
if he doesn't hurry.
I'd wager a month of his pay he's spectating at the Lightfeather Proving Grounds. Could you call him back here? We have work to do.
Looking for who? Oh, the stableman. He went inside not too long ago.
Enter the proving grounds?
Yes No

Hello there. Come for a few matches as well, I take it? Ah, have you ever seen anything so exhilarating?

There is nothing in this world more majestic than the chocobo. Spirited and resilient, with plumage kissed by the golden sun─they are my passion, and I long to someday breed the perfect chocobo. Fortunately, I work at the Holy Stables, or I'd never have the opportunity.

Cevilia's looking for me!? Bugger me with a hayfork, the fodder must've arrived! The matches will have to wait. Thanks for the tip, friend!

He practically tripped over himself running in here not long ago. Thank you for finding him. <sigh> He'll have to buckle down if he's serious about becoming a realm-renowned breeder. Though he's off to a good start having come here.

Ishgard is famous for raising chocobos, you know. They've always been the steed of choice on the battlefield.

The proving grounds, where you found my starry-eyed assistant, ensure they get plenty of practice. Well, I say it's practice, but it also makes a good show for the folks spectating, as well.

You should see for yourself sometime. Nothing like feathers flying from two chocobos fluttering, almost dancing, back and forth in the arena. You'll quickly come to understand why they call it the Lightfeather Proving Grounds.

And as long as this stable stands, you can be sure our chocobos will be there. I'll confess the weather has been more than unkind to our chocobo chicks, but we have traditions and a reputation to uphold!
