Went the distance on chocobo-back.

Travel 10,000 steps while on a chocobo; chocobo riding time can come naturally, but at the end of the road, you still might not have enough due to the fact that time required moving on a chocobo is at least a few hours.

Easiest method to tackle this is to find a broad, open area (the west side of Archylte Steppe is a good candidate) that has a Yellow Chocobo (so that only one Gysahl Green is consumed). Ride the Yellow Chocobo out to that open area and use a rubber band to hold either left or right, so that the chocobo runs in a circle; make sure that there are aren't any walls, rocks, or other obstructions in the area that the chocobo can get stuck on. Leave it on overnight and the trophy will unlock upon dismounting from the chocobo in the morning.

"Reluctantly crouched, at the starting line,
Chocos warking and kwehing in time..."

Son of a . . .

Why didn't I get off the dang bird? I wasted a whole night and figured the trophy was glitched, so loaded my previous save.

This only takes about an hour and a half of chocobo riding. I stopped at 1 hour 41 minutes. Just because I was watching a movie and lost track of time.

10,000 steps.
Average 2 steps per second.
5000 seconds. Divide by 60.
83.3 minutes.
1 hour, 23.3 seconds.

...So, which is it? 10,000 steps or "at least a few hours?"
The yellow chocobo takes about 150 steps per minute or 15,000 steps per 100 minutes or 10,000 steps per 67 minutes. 67 minutes is not a few hours.

Clarification would be nice, theoretically could use the Fragment Skill to double game speed, thus increasing effective steps per minute, but if the goal is a set amount of time, this doesn't help.

You need to ride a Chocobo, and while on him get 10,000 steps while on that chocobo, got mine while in Archylite Steppe, watching the scenery.

You just saved my evening. Been riding for three hours with double game speed when I saw your post.

Annoying trophy, got the game finished with a tiny 49% having avoided the chocobo's in favour of running everywhere to max out my stats. Had to run round in circles to get this. :(

Tied a few rubber bands around my controller and this trophy is set to be cleared in an hour or so. Im typing this as the trophy earns itself :)

I don't understand, does turning the speed of the game help or should it be turned off?

Hey people, DO NOT FORGET to get off the Chocobo, otherwise the trophy wont pop up

Is it necessary to make 10.000 steps at once or you can continue at times and the trophy count your total steps?

@vagos you can continue any time and you will get it.

This kind of trophy is the absolute worst... It takes no skill and unlike collecting or farming, you really feel like you accomplished nothing in the end. Wouldn't have been so bad if Chocobo races counted.
