Trust System

Trust System Icon.png Trust allows you to enter Shadowbringers dungeons with a party of NPC allies. Party composition must include the same balance of roles as indicated in the duty finder.

If you prefer to party with other players rather than NPCs, you should register via the Duty Finder as usual.

※When using Trust, coffers found in the duty will contain fewer items. In addition, some enemies will no longer drop rewards.


Upon completion of the Shadowbringers Main Scenario Quest, players will no longer be able to run all of the dungeons whenever they like. Instead, they will now need to level up each of the six available NPCs to be able to run the higher level dungeons with their Trust. They will also lose access to a selection of special NPCs available only in certain dungeons.

The most efficient way to level your Trust would be to level one tank and one DPS class alongside your NPC friends, which allows you to level all six of them up evenly together.

Available NPCs and their synergies can be viewed in the Post-MSQ NPCs tab.

When a Shadowbringers dungeon is required for the currently active Main Scenario Quest, players can run this dungeon with a predetermined selection of Trust NPCs by talking to one of the NPCs at the entrance. Before completion of the Shadowbringers Main Scenario Quest, players can run any of the unlocked Shadowbringers dungeons with this same selection of NPCs from the Trust panel. After reaching level 80 with all Trust NPC, this option becomes available again as a toggle in the Trust panel.
