XIV Duty is a term referring to instanced content that adventurers can participate in. This often refers to group content which can be reached using the Duty Finder, though several Quests feature solo Duty events. These events exist outside of the main server, and end when players leave, the time limit is reached or when the duty is completed.

A duty must be unlocked first with a quest before it will appear in the Duty Finder. All dungeons have a recommended level, and players whose level is below the recommended level will be denied entry. Players who are a few levels higher than the recommended level will have their level synced to three levels higher (or one level higher in the case of Heavensward content), which means their stats and the power of their equipment will be lowered while they are inside the dungeon. Some duties allow the use of undersized parties, which disables level sync and allows non-standard party entry. This mode forfeits any item or EXP from monsters, but still allows loot from treasure chests or quests pertaining to the duty.

Players may not change their class or job during a duty. When dead, players can either wait to be Raised or return to the starting point. The former will apply Weakness for a limited time, while the latter risks the player being sealed away from bosses. In group duties, in the event that one party member has not previously completed the duty, an additional reward will be offered on completion. In addition, some duties may randomly award Triple Triad cards to players at the completion of the duty.

Certain locations in many duties are sealed off once the enemy within them is attacked.

TypesEdit

Quest dutiesEdit

Initiated by quests, these often require the player to defeat a certain number of enemies, and typically take place within the location they are begun. Unlike other forms of duties, they are not accessed using the Duty Finder, and must be undertaken solo. Usually one or more NPC allies will assist the player by acting as party members.

DungeonsEdit

FFXIV Dungeon Icon

Dungeons are instanced locations. They feature a group of four or eight adventurers, where they explore and work together to defeat enemies, find treasure and complete objectives. Dungeons may only be entered after progressing to a certain point in a quest. A four-player party must contain two DPS, one healer and one tank classes, whereas an eight-player party must contain four DPS, two healer and two tank classes.

Dungeons typically have three or in some cases four boss areas, and engaging any enemy within these areas will start a ten-second countdown, after which the area's exits will be blocked, preventing exit or entry until either all enemies are defeated or the party is wiped out. There is a boss at the end of the dungeon, and its defeat will reveal the exit, thus successfully completing the duty.

TrialsEdit

FFXIV Trial Icon

Trials are instanced zones, similar to dungeons, which feature four or eight adventurers. They involve defeating a particular boss to be completed, often with additional enemies. Players cannot return to the starting point when defeated in a trial (with some exceptions), and in the event of a party wipe the battle resets.

RaidsEdit

FFXIV Raid Icon

Raids are instanced with powerful enemies and more rewarding treasures than duties. These typically involve a series of rooms with boss enemies, with the exception of rooms with normal enemies which are referred to as "trash pools". In some cases, the raids only involve a single enemy similar to trials. Groups can vary from eight to twenty-four participants.

Unlike dungeons or trials, raids typically have a weekly restriction on obtaining loot drops (not including crafting materials). These restrictions are usually lifted in a later patch.

GuildhestEdit

FFXIV Guildhest Icon

Guildhests are training events set in existing areas which can feature four players (with the exception of the final guildhest, which requires a full party), and teach the players mechanics. Being only practice modes, the rewards are lower than other duties.

PVPEdit

PVP duties are battles between other players of different Grand Companies.
