I've recently taken an interest in racing my chocobo I raised a very long time ago. I've done a lot of digging on the internet but I still seem to have a lot of questions.
It is a third generation black female with First Class Strength and Endurance, 0 Discernment and Reception. She was born with Gallop, and is currently retired. I'm not sure if it's possible at this point to learn Cantor.
I know that is beneficial to also have mental traits, but I'm not sure if it is possible to have the other two stats maxed out and still have decent mental attributes, or is it?
Despite having maxed physical attributes, I still lose a lot. Like whenever I go to race (I'll use the non-circuit re-run races as an example) there is usually (almost always) one super chocobo, named MeteorLegs or StarOnion, that ALWAYS wins by a huge margin.
How can I compete with something like that? Is there is a certain item I could use that would possibly tip the scales in my favor that would actually make a difference? I've tried speed and stamina apples. I'm wondering if the key is in these wearable items for the chocobo I've been reading about, or perhaps a more offensive approach with something like fire biscuits?
Also, how do I determine which order to give the jockey? I almost always choose "Final Spurt" to save stamina, but often times my chocobo will lead the entire race then fall behind at the last second despite this.
Any Chocobo Racing gurus out there have any tips or advice?
