Final Fantasy Wiki

Guildhests are a type of duty in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Their purpose is to serve as tutorials and practice missions for the undertaking of group content.

Guildhests are accessed through the Duty Finder once a player unlocks it by speaking to Battlewardens at certain hamlets near the beginning of the game, after completing their first Guildleve. There are fourteen Guildhests in total, ranging from level 10 to level 40 (with two every 5 levels). Each is undertaken by a light party of four players, with the exception of the final Guildhest, which calls for a full party of eight players. Completing a guildhest unlocks the next one in sequence.

Each guildhest focuses on a particular strategy that may be needed to complete the various duties in Final Fantasy XIV, with the Battlewarden coaching the party through each step. Completing the guildhest will reward players with EXP, gil, and Grand Company seals for participation. A bonus of EXP will be awarded if no players get K.O. during the Guildhest, and for first time participation (per class). All Guildhests are instanced battles set at certain places in the open-world.
