How to Complete Rancher's Request - Black
This quest becomes available after you have completed Rancher's Request - Yellow.
The objective of the quest is to catch a Black Chocobo and give it to Yew, the chocobo rancher.
Before you can catch a chocobo, you have to have a Moogle Chocobo Knight. Then you have to do one of the following quests:
- Monster encounter in the Rupie Mountains during the month of Plumfrost
- Monster encounter in the Galleria Deep in the month of Greenfire
- The Dig quest
- Shrine of the Paling Gods quest.
If it is a long time before the month(s) listed above, you can make time move forward.
Send at least one Chocobo Knight into the battle, then attack the Chocobo until it reaches HP Critical status. Remove any debuffs from the Chocobo, then have your Chocobo Knight stand next to the Chocobo and choose the Mount option. Your Chocobo Knight will mount the Chocobo. As long as your Chocobo Knight doesn't get KOed and you don't choose to dismount the Chocobo, you can keep the Chocobo permanently.
However, to complete the quest, you will have to give away the Chocobo. To do this, go to the quest location in Targ Wood with the Chocobo that you caught. Yew will take the Chocobo and you will complete the quest.
