Guildhests are instanced group quests, 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 difficult as players level up and delve deeper. After completing at least one Guildleve, you can then talk to a Battlewarden after completing Simply the Hest (starting region specific) to unlock Guildhests.
Gil , experience , and 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).
There are several steps to unlocking Guildhests. Note the following steps require that you do so 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 Guildleves in regions that are not where your character is originally from, but doing so will not unlock Guildhests.
- Unlock Guildleves, choose the region in which your character originally started FFXIV:
- After reaching level 10, speak to the same Guildleve character as you did above. You will receive a message that you're strong enough to start doing Guildhests.
- Speak with a Battlewarden.
To enter specific Guildhests, you must be at the required level otherwise the duty will not be available. 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.
