Duty ⇒ Adding Members

151201.png
 If someone has left your Duty Finder party, you can have the finder locate you a new member by using the Add Member feature. Make certain you bring your new member up to speed on battle tactics once he or she arrives.

Duty ⇒ Adventuring in Eureka

152631.png
 You have obtained your very own magia board! In Eureka, each creature is aspected to a certain element, giving them a distinct advantage in battle. You will need to make judicious use of both the magia board and magicite to overcome your foes.
152632.png
 Raise your affinity to certain elements by melding magicite to your magia board or spinning the board to change its alignment. A magia board properly configured to an enemy's aetherial tilt can enhance both offensive and defensive capabilities.

Speak to the Expedition Engineer for further guidance.

Duty ⇒ Being KO'd During a Guildhest

150741.png
 If you are KO'd while participating in a guildhest, you will be given the option to return to the starting point of the operation, rather than all the way back to your home point.

Duty ⇒ Bicolor Gemstones

152781.png
 FATEs in certain areas offer bicolor gems as rewards. They can be exchanged with gemstone traders for rare items, some of which can only be obtained via these vendors.
152782.png
 Completing FATEs in these areas with the highest rating possible will increase your rank, which allows the local gemstone trader to offer a wider selection of items.
152783.png
 To view your progress in each applicable area, select Shared FATE from Travel in the main menu.

Duty ⇒ Challenge Log

151741.png
 The challenge log contains a list of adventuring objectives across a wide range of categories. Completing any one of these objectives will earn you rewards. Completion status is reset on a weekly basis, and it is possible to undertake the challenges repeatedly.
151742.png
 Each unique challenge you complete counts towards the Overall Completion category, which yields additional rewards. As you progress in level and advance in the scenario, more challenge objectives will become available, giving you the chance to garner richer bonuses.

Duty ⇒ Clearing Instanced Raids

150572.png
 Instanced raids come with several rules─including time limits and restrictions on changing classes or jobs. Instanced areas can be left at any time by using an exit or selecting Leave from the Duty Finder, but by doing so, remember that you will be abandoning your party in the process. Exits will also appear after defeating a raid boss, allowing your party easy access out of the area without having to backtrack.
150573.png
 Once a boss has been engaged, players will be unable to enter or leave the immediate area. Make sure that all your party members are nearby and prepared beforehand, lest you incur their undying wrath.
150574.png
 If you are KO'd during an instanced raid, you may either have a party member Raise you, or choose to return to the instance entrance.

Duty ⇒ Companion Makeovers

152691.png
 Your companion has placed a great deal of trust in you. So much so, they are willing to allow you to change their attire using glamours.
152692.png
 Gear for the head, body, hands, legs, and feet can be used for glamours so long as it can be equipped by all races and all classes. Please note, however, a glamour prism is required for each piece of gear you wish to glamour.

Duty ⇒ Crystalline Conflict

151211.png
 You have unlocked Crystalline Conflict! The Grand Companies of Eorzea established this new tactical exercise to strengthen their individual members' strategic capacity. Outmaneuver other adventurers just like you in a match of wits to claim victory!

Speak with Gungi Zelungi at the Wolves' Den to learn more.

Duty ⇒ Duties for Alliances

151571.png
 This duty is designed to be undertaken by an alliance, a squad of 24 adventurers formed of three full parties. This battle composition is reserved for large-scale duties only.
151572.png
 While you are in an alliance, the class/job icons and HP bars of alliance members will appear to the right of the party list. By joining forces with other parties, you can achieve that which would otherwise be impossible.

Duty ⇒ Duty Actions

152511.png
 Duty Actions are special actions that are available only during the course of specific quests or battles. Duty actions are used by left-clicking their icon, but can be bound to other keys.
152512.png
 Some duty actions can only be used a limited number of times. Deciding when or when not to use them can mean the difference between victory and a quick trip back to your Home Point.

152513.png
 Duty actions are special actions that are available only during the course of specific quests or battles. Duty actions are used by pressing RS / R3 while holding down both LT / L2 and RT / R2 .

 Some duty actions can only be used a limited number of times. Deciding when or when not to use them can mean the difference between victory and a quick trip back to your Home Point.

Duty ⇒ Duty Recorder

152651.png
 The Duty Recorder is now unlocked, allowing you to document duties for viewing at a later date. Playback features include speed adjustment, focus target switching, and more.
152652.png
 Duty recording is only allowed after several conditions have been met─the first being that the recorder is enabled. Recording can be enabled from the Duty Recorder interface located under Duty in the main menu.

Duty ⇒ FATE Rewards

150661.png
 Once a FATE is complete, a window detailing your reward will be displayed. Rewards are distributed to all event participants and are based not only on success, but on individual contributions.
150662.png
 The more active you are in completing event objectives, the greater your contribution will be deemed. Contribution is indicated via the gold, silver, or bronze medal that appears on your reward window.

Duty ⇒ Frontline

151901.png
 The Borderland Ruins located on the outskirts of the Carteneau Flats are now accessible! Control of this ancient Allagan site is decided via large-scale player-versus-player (PvP) battles known as Frontline campaigns. Speak with a Grand Company flyer at one of the airship landings for further details.

Duty ⇒ Guildhest Objectives

150721.png
 Once you have commenced a guildhest, the operation's objectives and the time remaining to complete them will appear in the duty list. Hints helpful to completing guildhest objectives will sometimes appear on-screen. These hints will also be added to the duty list after being displayed.

If you are unable to complete the objectives within the allotted time, the guildhest will be deemed a failure.

Duty ⇒ Guildhest Rewards

150751.png
 If you successfully complete all guildhest objectives in the time allotted, you will be eligible for a reward. Speak with the battlewarden overseeing the operation to collect it. If your party can complete the objectives without suffering a single casualty, you will be rewarded a special bonus.

Duty ⇒ Guildhests

150711.png
 Guildhests are special operations organized by Adventurers' Guilds and overseen by NPCs known as battlewardens. Speaking with a battlewarden displays a list of all guildhests currently available. Please note, however, that each operation has conditions (such as level or class) that must be met by all party members before the duty can be commenced.
150712.png
 At first, you may find that only a limited number of guildhests are accessible, but do not worry. As you progress in level, that number will grow.

Guildhests can also be accessed via the Duty Finder, removing the hassle of having to try and gather a party.

Duty ⇒ Happy Bunnies

152701.png
 As a reward for saving them from imminent peril, happy bunnies will help you find hidden treasure on the island.

They will give you hints as to the location of buried coffers each time you feed them a lucky carrot.

152702.png
 You can offer them as many carrots as you like, but move quickly. Happy bunnies will only accompany you for a limited time for fear of natural predators in the wilds.

Duty ⇒ Hazardous Zones

150731.png
 While participating in guildhests, you may notice areas that are colored differently than the surrounding landscape. This color is to warn players that stepping into the hazardous zones will trigger new enemies to appear. Take care when passing nearby.

Duty ⇒ Instanced Raids

151511.png
 Instanced raids are party-based content which take place in closed environments such as dungeons. The term “instanced” refers to the fact that these areas are reserved for a single group of players, meaning that you will not encounter any others during your time in them.

Parties must rely on their own wits and strength to conquer the many challenges that await them, such as deadly traps, complex mazes, and powerful bosses.

151512.png
 To add to the challenge, instanced raids have numerous requirements such as time limits, level restrictions, and limitations of changing classes or jobs while within.

Finally, raids can be joined either by forming a party and speaking with the NPC at the entrance, or by using the Duty Finder to automatically pair you with other adventurers around the world with the same ambitions.

Duty ⇒ Level Sync

150981.png
 Level sync is a system which allows players to participate in lower level duties by temporarily adjusting their levels, and is available for most FATEs and instanced raids.
150982.png
 When your level is synced, not only your personal attributes, but the attributes of your gear will automatically be lowered to meet the requirements set by the duty in which you are participating. Once the duty ends, everything is restored to its original state.
150983.png
 Experience earned while level synced is based off the synced level, not your current level; however, it will be added to the progress of the latter.

Duty ⇒ Logos Manipulator

152731.png
 You have gained access to the logos manipulator.

This device utilizes mnemes housed within logograms to grant players logos actions.

152732.png
 Up to three logos actions can be held at any time.

When enabled, they will be registered as duty actions to be used while adventuring in Eureka.

152733.png
 The logos manipulator can produce a wide variety of actions depending on the type and quantity of logograms used.

Only with trial and error, and perhaps a little luck, can you discover them all.

Duty ⇒ Player Commendation

151721.png
 Player commendation is a system whereby you can commend a party member who left a positive impression upon you in the course of duty.
151722.png
 Upon the conclusion of a duty, the Player Commendation button will appear in the bottom right of the screen. Selecting it will bring up an interface wherein you can commend a player. Please note that commendations cannot be given to those who were in your party at the time of duty registration.
151723.png
 Commendations can be accumulated over time. By receiving a certain amount, you will unlock achievements that grant special rewards. It pays to play nice!

Duty ⇒ PvP Rewards

151531.png
 Participating in PvP matches will grant you the following three rewards: PvP Exp, Series Exp, and Wolf Marks.
151532.png
 You may claim additional rewards outside of PvP matches via Series Rewards and more. For further information, speak with Storm Captain Berkoeya Loetahlsyn at the Wolves' Den.

Duty ⇒ Sightseeing Log

151891.png
 The sightseeing log is a comprehensive record of breathtaking landscapes and stunning vistas you have discovered across Eorzea. Vistas are only recorded upon discovering the exact location noted in Millith's impressions.
151892.png
 Time of day and weather are also important to uncovering a vista, as are the emotes you perform once you have arrived at one. Millith's impressions will often contain hints on these hidden conditions, though you may still need all your wits to discover some of the more obscure entries.

Once an entry is completed, a rough sketch and information on the location's history will be added to your log.

151893.png
 The sightseeing log is a comprehensive record of breathtaking landscapes and stunning vistas you have discovered across Eorzea. Vistas are often difficult to reach, some requiring sprinting or jumping, and are only recorded upon discovering the exact location noted in Millith's impressions.

Duty ⇒ The Duty Roulette

151701.png
 When using the Duty Roulette, you will be assigned a random duty from among those you have unlocked. In return for leaving your destination in the hands of fate, you will receive enhanced rewards.
151702.png
 Furthermore, should you happen to be an adventurer in need─that is to say, your role is in short supply─you will receive an additional bonus.

Duty ⇒ The FATE System

150641.png
 FATE is short for Full Active Time Event. These public quests occur periodically in real time around Eorzea, and anyone can participate by simply showing up before one ends. When you sense a FATE nearby, a message will appear on your screen, and the location will be displayed on your maps.
150642.png
 The type of FATE in progress can be identified by its map icon. Mousing over the icon will display the FATE title.
150643.png
 You will automatically join a FATE the moment you cross the event threshold. At this time, the FATE title, objectives, and time remaining will appear in your duty list.
150644.png
 If you are several levels higher than the recommended level, a Level Sync button will appear in your duty list. Press the button to automatically lower your level so that you may participate and receive rewards.

Duty ⇒ The Wolves' Den

Duty ⇒ Toy Chest

151931.png
 You have acquired a toy chest containing several mini-games. Visit an inn room to try your hand at these popular Eorzean pastimes.

Duty ⇒ Upgraded Logos Manipulator

152741.png
 The functionality of the logos manipulator has been expanded.

The device now houses both an astral and umbral array, each of which can hold up to three logograms. Please note, however, that using a total of four or more logograms will lower the chance of a successful transubstantiation.

152742.png
 While not without risk, successful use of both arrays allows the creation of two actions to be used together during your adventures.

Discover the full potential of mnemes and overcome the dangers of Eureka.

Duty ⇒ Using the Duty Finder

151191.png
 First, highlight a duty from the list and press the Join button to begin the matching process. A padlock icon indicates duty that cannot be accessed until you have achieved certain requirements such as level or quest completion.
151192.png
 Once you have registered, you can view the duty's particulars, including party and server status, by selecting Duty Finder from the duty list.
151193.png
 When your party has been successfully formed, a confirmation prompt will appear.

Remember, it is good practice to work out a battle plan with your party before rushing headlong into an instance.

Duty ⇒ Viewing Recorded Duties

152671.png
 Recorded duties can be viewed in inns across the realm. The various playback controls, including Group Pose and Idling Camera functionality, can be confirmed in the Duty Recorder help text.

Duty ⇒ Vote Dismiss

151711.png
 Vote dismiss is a function whereby players who are absent for extended periods or harass others can be democratically expelled from the party. To initiate a vote, first select Party Members from the Party section of the main menu.
151712.png
 Next, select the party member you wish to nominate for dismissal, then Vote Dismiss from the submenu. You will be required to select a reason for dismissal. Please be warned that unjustified usage of vote dismiss is a punishable act.
151713.png
 When vote dismiss is initiated, party members will be prompted for their response. If more than half vote Yes, the player in question will be dismissed from the party.

Duty ⇒ Weekly Reward Limits

151581.png
 You can receive only one reward item per week for completing duties in the most recent raid. The instant you are awarded an item from the loot list, you relinquish your right to vie for all remaining items regardless of whether you selected Need or Greed.
151582.png
 Completing an objective in duties requiring an alliance will produce three treasure coffers, one for each party. This means that your chance to obtain a reward is no less than that of other duties.

Upon completing all objectives in such duties, players may vie for special items separate from those discovered in treasure coffers. You can only receive one of these special items per week per duty.

151583.png
 Reward eligibility is reset every (Reset Time).

※Duty reward restrictions are listed under Duty Finder information.
