Welcome back to Save File Plays Final Fantasy VII! Last time, we finished off the flashback, and then got eaten by a giant snake. That… that last part wasn’t supposed to happen. Okay, it was, but only because I wanted to show it off. This time, I’ll get around it the right way, and then our plucky party will get to continue on their adventures! So let’s hop to it.
That means going back to the Chocobo Farm
MUSIC: Farm Boy
I also took my own advice from last update and swapped Barret into my party to take advantage of his super OP weapon that I managed to steal. It basically doubles his attack power, which is pretty awesome, and it’s much stronger than anything else that I have at this point.
Unfortunately, it isn’t long range, so I have to swap him into the front row. A small price to pay though, in my opinion.
THAT’S RIGHT, CLOUD, YOU DON’T TAKE NO GUFF!
Yeah, seriously, what the heck?
Choco Billy: You know, if you really want a Chocobo, you should go out and catch one. Want to know how to catch a Chocobo?
Here’s the lowdown:
1: Buy Chocobo Lure Materia (2000 Gil)
2: Buy Greens
3: Equip Chocobo Lure Materia
4: Run around on Chocobo Tracks on World Map
5: Get into battle with Chocobo + Other Monsters
6: Feed Chocobo Greens to keep it from running away
7: Kill other monsters
The most expensive greens will stall a Chocobo longer. But they’re SUPER EXPENSIVE at this point in the game, and I’m trying to hold onto my money for a point that’s not too far off. So I go for the higher tier, yet middle of the road 800 gil Pahsana Greens. I mean, I’m only going to be riding this bird for like 15 seconds!
So equip the Chocobo Lure Materia and get to steppin’!
MUSIC: Those Who Fight
Stupid Elephants! And why can’t I ride those other birds? They look perfectly rideable! What are they, Anti-Chocobos?
