From BG FFXI Wiki
(Redirected from Chocobo Digging)
Jump to: navigation, search

There is no item limit to a zone, but players are subject to 100 successful digs in total per real life day on a rental chocobo, and Information Needed digs on a raised chocobo.


Chocobo digging possesses an invisible rank, similar to that of other crafts. The way to determine ones rank is based upon the time (in seconds) a chocobo must wait after zoning in before it may begin digging.
The delay between digs also decreases as ones digging rank increases. The daily limit is successful item digs and is not total dig attempts; conquest points don't count towards limit. Most successful digs count as 1 fatigue but as you level, your bird may get an occasional free dig. Daily maximum dig is 100 items. You need to move at least 10 yalms away from previous dig to increase chance of not failing the dig.

Monthly Adventurer Campaigns

There are two types of campaigns that may run any given month.

Chocobo Digging Skill Increase Campaign

  • When this Monthly Adventurer Campaign is active, your Chocobo's Chocobo Digging skill increases faster.
    • Your Chocobo will have an increased chance for digging skill to increase every time it digs.
    • Note: When run concurrently with the Hyper Chocobo Digging Campaign below, experience gains will be properly applied even though there are no changes in visual effects.

Hyper Chocobo Digging Campaign

  • When this Monthly Adventurer Campaign is active, Chocobo's can dig faster between intervals.
    • The time that you must rest between executing your next command after digging will be decreased.
      • If your Chocobo Digging skill is already at its maximum, this campaign does not apply.
    • Note: As mentioned above, this is not a "Plus!" campaign. these are two entirely different campaigns, even though the name does not imply that.
