Additional Survival Skill Information

How to Increase Survival Skill Level

Gladiolus gains SP for his skill by traveling on foot. The total distance required to travel by foot gets longer as Gladio's Survival skill level increases.

Tips for Increasing Survival Skill Level

Since walking is the only way to level up this skill, keep traveling around by foot and only use the Regalia or any type of fast travel if necessary or if you do not have a lot of time on your hands.

      Hi! Thank you for your question :)
      Noctis needs to sneak behind the Black Chocobo until Ignis distracts it. The player should keep the chocobo inside his field of view to see if it is looking around, if so, Noctis needs to duck (hold square). Keep on doing this while also moving towards the chocobo until Ignis distracts it. While it is distracted, pick up the glasses then run away before the timer ends.
