In the Wiz Chocobo Post on a barrel it states:
“Duscaen dude ranch focused on the protection and propagation of everyone’s favorite feathered friends. Tourists are invited to feed and interact with the birds at their leisure. The post also sponsors Chocobo races and a bird rental service.
Wild Chocobos one trotted freely through the forests of Duscae, but the recent influx of ferocious beasts has sent the birds running in fear. Despite the Hunters strengthening their patrol of the area, their numbers were not enough to attend to all the lost and injured birds, and the population continued to decrease.
Troubled by the Chocobos’ travails, Wiz Forlane sought to set up a safe haven for birds in need. Thanks to his efforts, the feathered friends of the forest once again had a place to rest their tired wings in peace. Without his hard work, the national Lucian sport of Chocobo racing might have been lost to the annals of time.”
It is said that the Lucky Chocobo will bring you good fortune into the new year. The big bright red flightless bird wants to help you transport through the world of Eos, well at least the tame ones do!
The Lucky Chocobo will boost your King of Lucis, Dark Troops, Dark Elementals, Dark Mercenaries, as well as your Supplies. Let’s break it down below.
First and foremost, the Royal Stables is the home for all your Mounts. Just like the Astral Shrine, you can locate each of them in here, even the ones you do not have unlocked! It’s a great way to review their strengths and determine if its right for you based on your gameplay style.
Here you may also skill your Mounts to tune them for your strategic needs. If you are more of a Defense player, then you will gravitate towards the left ride, whether as the attackers will lean more in the middle. The Utility on the right side is more balanced, which will be useful in every circumstance you will be in. The higher their levels, the more HP they have, the greater chances your Mounts will survive in battle, of course, with the stats supporting them.
Remember, you can reskill them for FREE at any time you wish, so don’t fret if you mess up or decide to change your style of gameplay in the future. However, once they reach their maxed level, they do provide enough Skill Points to cover everything.
Now let’s dig into the Lucky Chocobo and see why it’s the talk of the week!
(January 28th, 2020)
A gentle reminder, a Mount’s overall potential is all depending on his Rank, Endurance, and Strength.
Rank: Combat Effectiveness
Endurance: Attack while Defending
Strength: Attack while Attacking
The higher your Mount’s Rank is, the more prominent his damage will be.
When your Mount is involved in a march attacking, he will use Strength to manage the amount of damage he deals with.
When your Chocobo is defending, he will use Endurance to absorb damage being inflicted.

Lucky Chocobo Power of Mount Skills
The Power of Mounts, just like the Power of Kings and Queens, have universal skills that can be unlocked through any of the Mounts. However, on top of the universal skills, each of the Mounts has its own distinguished areas in the Skill Tree that make them just slightly different from the others.
These skills are passive, so you do NOT have to have the Mount active in order to obtain the benefits from the Power of Mounts.
In this guide, we will focus on the specialties that Lucky Chocobo has in the Power of Mounts that the others do not.

How should I Skill him?
If you are an attacker, then be sure to prioritize your Rank and Strength. Chances are you like to accommodate your March and Rally size to make the most of your hits. This would be suitable for you as well.
If you are a defender, make a note to skill your Rank in addition to Endurance first before proceeding.
Next, assuming you are taking full advantage of the Commander Center, skill your Lucky Supply section, Supplies are an exceptional addition. This will benefit you in both situations, and so will the Elemental and Mercenary stats.
Do you want to know what’s so great about the Commander Center and the benefits it has for your Empire? Check out Aly’s ‘Explore the Commander Center’ guide to read all about it.
Do not forget your Lucky Chocobo Attack to increase his strength in battle, as he will absorb the damage being dealt with in your army.
The King of Luci’s section will be particularly helpful if you have the Spirit unlocked by your side, as this will benefit your Mount and your Summon as well.
Lucky Chocobo Chart
The Lucky Chocobo requires Lucky Chocobo Signets. Check the chart below to see how many!
How does he compare to the others?
The latest Mount release was the mighty Winter Griffon. Hee was one powerful bird, especially in battle. But how does the Lucky Chocobo withstand against him? Is he any better, or does he have no choice in comparison?
Let’s compare the Winter Griffon and Lucky Chocobo side by side and find out!
Winter Griffon vs. Lucky Chocobo
Winter Griffon Rank: 6,000
Winter Griffon Endurance and Strength: 900M%
Lucky Chocobo Rank: 9,900
Lucky Chocobo Endurance and Strength: 5B%
Comparing the Rank, Endurance, and Strength alone, it is pretty clear who is the winner here. But let’s analyze just a few more stats such as the attack bonuses and troop stats to make this even more transparent.
In terms of the Mount Attack bonuses, the Winter Griffon has 16B%, while Lucky Chocobo has 35B%.
Winter Griffon Dark Troop stats:
- 4B% Dark Troop Attack
- 100M% Dark Troop HP
- 300M% Dark Troop Armor
Lucky Chocobo Dark Troop stats:
- 185B% Dark Troop Attack
- 45B% Dark Troop HP
- 135B% Dark Troop Armor
As we can see, it is quite apparent that the Lucky Chocobo is significantly stronger and the best Mount to date.
What to Read Next?
Now that we have covered the Lucky Chocobo, I recommend you to review the King of Lucis and Command Center to further strengthen your Empire and maximize your Lucky Chocobo’s potential.
King of Lucis
King of Lucis will play a big part when pairing Lucky Chocobo with it, read all about Somnus and the Enclave of Lucis to utilize them both together and build your power.
The Commander Center contains quite a bit of Supply stats, so read this guide about the Commander Center and how supplies work to strengthen your stats.
I do not think I need to continue to elaborate on whether this Mount is better than the others. I guess FFXV: A New Empire wants to bring us good fortune in time for Lunar New Year.
A few things to remember about this sturdy birdie:
- Rank, Endurance, and Strength are indispensable to skill when leveling him. Rank makes him more effective when attacking your enemies or defending your Empire. Endurance consumes damage being dealt in defense mode. Strength to dictate the amount of damage being thrown at your opponents.
- Take full advantage of the Lucky Supply section as it will be extremely beneficial to your Mount Supplies (Psst…read that Commander Center guide!)
- If you have King of Lucis, then make sure to leverage that skill as well to boost your Mount but also your King of Lucis as well.
