Chocobo Encounters w/ no Lure?
« on: 2016-02-12 01:12:38 »
I was wondering if this is normal? I just encountered three chocobo formations in a row on the Isle of Mideel with no Lure equipped. I checked the effect of the Materia on Caves of Narshe and it said 'increases chocobo encounter rate by 2x; does this mean it's possible to find chocobos without the Lure?

IIRC this is the way it should work:
If you have no chocobo lure the battles will be selected from the region's encounter table. AFAIK, these specifically omit the chocobo formations. I could be wrong on that.
If you have a lure, there is up to a 85 percent chance (or something high like that) that the battle will be chosen from an entirely different encounter table that only contains chocobo encounters for that region if there are any. I believe the information on which zone you're in is determined by the walkmesh of the world map.

So you shouldn't be getting chocobo encounters without the lure.

It definitely isn't normal.

I'll check the Materia in WM and see if something got mixed up; thanks for the info.
