Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

Exploring Northern Corel

Jarrod Garripoli

Chapter 7 of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth can be quite a long chapter, as you have to fight two bosses and go through what is essentially two dungeons. You will also unlock part of the "Corel Region" iconCorel Region here, but it won’t be the entire area, as you’ll have to wait until Chapter 9 for the rest of it. The main story goal for Chapter 7 is to simply head to Mt. Corel and climb it. This page will detail all of the activities you can do in Northern Corel.

Northern Corel Chocobo Location

It should be mentioned that the Corel Region is split into two major parts, Northern Corel (this page’s focus) and Southern Corel (the desert). You will only be able to ride the Chocobo in the northern part, but don’t worry, once you get to the southern part, you will eventually unlock a different mode of transportation. Getting back to the task on hand, you’re wondering how to unlock the Chocobo for Northern Corel, which is pretty simple.

If you complete Rendezvous in Costa del Sol, you can get a free Chocobo for Northern Corel.

As you’re leaving Costa del Sol, you should come across a stable right by the exit. Speak to the NPC manning the stable that functions as a shopkeeper to learn you can buy a permit from them for a measly 300 Gil. This will get you the ability to call the Chocobo in Northern Corel whenever you want. However, if you’re someone that likes to save every single gil they have, you can also get one for free by simply doing the Rendezvous in Costa del Sol quest.

Quests in Northern Corel

There are only three Quests right now in Northern Corel, although you can only actually complete two of them. The third one, The Saga of the Seaside Inn, will require you to reach Chapter 9 to finish it, but you can do a good chunk now. The other two Quests can be completed as soon as you have access to Northern Corel.

World Intel in Northern Corel

As you already know, each of the main regions has some World Intel for you to complete and the Corel Region is no different. Of course, you only have access to Northern Corel here, so you won’t be able to do everything. The following table lists the various World Intel you can unlock in Northern Corel, as well as the number of each. You won’t be able to do anything related to the Protorelic in Chapter 7, though, so you won’t have to worry about that. The sole Excavation Intel in this chapter is actually required for Johnny’s side quest.

World Intel Number
Divine Intel 1
Activation Intel 2
Expedition Intel 2
Fiend Intel 2
Excavation Intel 1

To Mt. Corel

The story destination for this chapter is Mt. Corel, with the entrance to it on the western side of the Costa del Sol area. After exiting Costa del Sol, call your Chocobo and follow the main road to the west. You can pretty much stick to the northern path here as you continue westward, until you reach the base of Mt. Corel. The lift is broken, so the party decides that they have to go on foot!
