Trials are a type of duty found in Final Fantasy XIV. They differ from other duties in that they feature only a single boss encounter, where other duties typically have multiple boss encounters and regular enemies in between.

There are generally three difficulty levels to trials. Normal modes require only 4 players, and only three of them are encountered early in the game. Once players arrive at the endgame, they will start encountering Hard mode trials, which require 8 players. The most difficult trials are Extreme modes, which are among the most difficult encounters in the game at the time of their release, many of them being seen as superbosses. No Extreme mode trials are required for the main scenario.

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers introduced Unreal trials, which are old Extreme trials rereleased at the then max level with tight item level syncs and no ability to run them unsynced in order to maximize their difficulty. Unreal trials offer unique rewards, but are replaced every patch with a new Unreal trial.

A Trials roulette can be found in the Duty Finder, which will enter a solo player into a random Hard mode trial that they have already completed with greater rewards than queueing for specific trials, as well as extra bonuses that can only be received once per day. Normal mode trials can instead be found in the Leveling roulette, as their difficulty is on par with leveling dungeons. Extreme mode trials cannot be found on any roulette, as they are typically far too difficult for players to be thrown into randomly with complete strangers.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

All Hard trials featuring primals prior to the Singularity Reactor featured the "(Hard)" tag in their duty name. This was an artifact from the first three Hard modes, which needed to differentiate themselves from their Normal modes. Once it became clear that Hard modes had completely replaced Normal modes, and that no new Normal trials would be released, the developers stopped appending the "(Hard)" tag to new trials.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 While this duty was available in 2.0, it was not added to the duty finder until patch 2.16.
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 Unreal trials are removed and replaced with new Unreals every major patch.
