Main article: Duties

Guildhests are instanced group duties, usually involves a mini-dungeon or boss fight, that players can complete for experience and gil. Guildhests are designed to teach players basic group mechanics that will be needed later on during Dungeons and Trials. Initial Guildhests are quite easy, they become slightly difficult as players level up and delve deeper. After completing at least one Guildleve, you can then talk to a Battlewarden after completing Feature QuestSimply the Hest (starting region specific) to unlock Guildhests.

Gil Gil, Experience experience, and Company seal Grand Company Seals are rewards for completing Guildhests. There is also a initial first-time bonus awarded per job, per character (not available for Shadowbringers and later jobs).

Guildhests cannot be completed using an unrestricted party ("unsyncing").

Unlocking Guildhests

There is an extra step to unlocking Guildhests. Note the following step requires that you do it in the region in which your character originally started FFXIV. Look under Character→Profile→City-State if you need a reminder what city your character is from. You can unlock the Guildleves in regions that are not where your character is originally from, but doing so will not trigger Feature QuestSimply the Hest.

To enter specific Guildhests, you must be at the required level otherwise the duty will not be available. Duty Roulette Duty Roulette: Guildhests unlocks immediately upon completion of the first guildhest. The roulette can select from any of your unlocked guildhests, even if you have not yet completed your most recently unlocked guildhest.
