Mentor System Update

As previously announced in the patch 5.0 notes, the requirements for being granted mentor status will be updated with the release of patch 5.1.

These changes apply not only to players who wish to become mentors, but also those who have already been certified as mentors prior to the update.

Differences Between Types of Mentor

Until now, the features available to battle mentors and trade mentors were largely the same. However, patch 5.1 introduces the following changes:

  • Those who achieve mentor certification as a Disciple of War or Magic can change their online status to “PvE Mentor” or “PvP Mentor.”
  • Those who achieve mentor certification as a Disciple of the Land or Hand can change their online status to “Trade Mentor.”
    Certification as a trade mentor no longer grants access to Duty Roulette: Mentor.

* Prior to the update, all mentors had the option to change their online status to “Mentor.”

Requirements

Battle Mentors

As of patch 5.1, the requirements for battle mentor certification change as follows:

Before After

・Complete 1,000 dungeons, raids, or trials.

・Receive 300 player commendations.

・Complete any level 80 tank role quest.

・Complete any level 80 healer role quest.

・Complete any level 80 melee DPS or ranged DPS role quest.

・Complete 1,000 dungeons, raids, or trials.

・Receive 1,500 player commendations.

・Complete any level 80 tank role quest.

・Complete any level 80 healer role quest.

・Complete any level 80 melee DPS or ranged DPS role quest.

Trade Mentors

The requirements for trade mentors remain unchanged from patch 5.0.

Renewing Mentor Certification

Players who are currently mentors must renew their certification within the specified period by meeting the requirements and speaking to one of the Smith NPCs.

Renewal Period

From the release of patch 5.1 to December 2019 (planned)

To Renew Certification

Once you have fulfilled the updated requirements, speak to one of the Smiths in Gridania, Limsa Lominsa, or Ul’dah, or at the Hall of the Novice in Western La Noscea (X:28.2 Y:24.4), and select “Apply for Mentor Certification.”

Important

Mentors who do not renew within the specified period will be unable to access the following features:

  • Duty Roulette: Mentor
  • The ability to change online status to “PvE Mentor,” “PvP Mentor,” or “Trade Mentor.”

They will, however, still be able to participate in the Novice Network chat channel. An icon will indicate that they are a mentor who has yet to renew their certification.
