Party is a group of players. Players can form a party to tackle many group activities such as dungeons, trials, FATEs, guildhests, Treasure Hunts and certain quests. Players can use the Duty Finder to automatically form parties across the servers for many duties.
A Light Party consist of 4 players while a Full Party consist of 8 players. An alliance consists of 3 full parties or 24 players.
- Additionally players can use the Party Finder, introduced in patch 2.1, to form parties with specific goals by filtering players with certain requirements.

Alliances consist of 3 full parties of 24 players. The role mix is normally different for alliances: 1 Tank / 2 Healers / 5 DPSes. Alliance Raids are the primary content for this.
