FFXIV Mentor Requirements: Players to Assist BeginnersThe mentor system is a system which will allow players to assist beginners. In order to become a mentor, players must earn specific achievements and talk to a specific NPC.
To qualify to become a mentor, players must first have earned certain achievements. There are two sets of prerequisites, one for Disciples of War and Magic, and one for Disciples of the Hand and Land. After earning the required achievements for either set, speak with one of the Smiths to become a mentor.
There are three requirements:
Must have one job from each role (Tank/DPS/Healer) at level 60.
It’s set up in a way so that the player can offer advice for each role.
Must have completed 1,000 or more instanced dungeons or trials.
You may feel this is a large amount of number; however, we believe a lot of players have this completed already.
Have earned over 300 commendations.
Additionally, there are requirements for those who don’t play battle-related classes/jobs.
Instead of the above requirements, players can also become mentors by completing the following:
Have at least one class from both Disciples of Hand and Land at level 60.
Have crafted over 100 collectables.
Have gathered over 300 collectables.
The Duty Roulette: Level 70 replaced Expert dungeons in 4.2, it places the player into one of the light party dungeons. This roulette will only become available after unlocking and completing all of the dungeons in the roulette.
The following dungeons must be completed:
Ala Mhigo (Dungeon)
The Temple of the Fist
The Drowned City of Skalla
Players must have an average item level of 300 or greater.
I've got some of these covered, not sure if I have them all. It also looks like they are keeping the rewards minimal in order to keep out those who just want stuff for themselves. Probably idealistic thinking.
