Hall of the Novice and Mentor System Preview


In today’s patch 3.2 preview, we introduce two new additions designed to aid fledgling adventurers: the Hall of the Novice and the Mentor System.

Hall of the Novice
The Hall of the Novice is a new series of challenges designed to prepare new adventurers for the rigors of party combat.

– Entry Requirements
Upon reaching level 15 with at least one Disciple of War or Magic, players can speak with the Smith NPC located at the Adventurers’ Guild in each city and several other locations.
* Players who have already reached level 60 with at least one class or job will have the Hall of the Novice unlocked automatically.

– Types of Training
Players can undertake several training exercises depending on the role of their current class or job.

– Rewards
Upon successfully completing a training exercise, speak with the nearby attendant to receive a reward.

 

Mentor System
The mentor system provides more experienced players a means to offer advice and guidance to newer players.

– What is a mentor?
Mentors are veteran players who chose to offer their time and experience to help guide new adventurers. To facilitate their assistance, mentors will gain access to a special chat channel as well as a means to easily register for duties and trials with new players.

– Mentor Requirements
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.

Achievement Requirements for Disciples of War and Magic
・Complete at least one level 60 job quest as a tank, healer, and DPS.
・Complete 1,000 dungeons, raids, or trials.
・Receive 300 player commendations.
Achievement Requirements for Disciples of the Hand and Land
・Reach level 60 with at least one Disciple of the Hand and Land.
・Synthesize 100 collectables.
・Gather or catch 300 collectables.

– Novice Network
Upon becoming a mentor, you will automatically gain access to the Novice Network, a chat channel where new adventurers can seek the advice of veteran players.
* The “New Adventurer” status is applied to all players who have less than 40 hours of play time.

– Duty Roulette: Mentor
Mentors will also gain access to Duty Roulette: Mentor, which assigns players to duties that are struggling to fill party member slots.
* With the exception of parties actively seeking members for an ongoing duty, Duty Roulette: Mentor will not match together a full party of mentors.

Furthermore, players can earn an exclusive achievement reward after completing Duty Roulette: Mentor a set number of times.
* Achievement rewards will be added in a future update.
* After registering for Duty Roulette: Mentor, your online status will be automatically changed to “Mentor.”
