Beast Tribe Guides for All FFXIV Expansions
This page contains information about Beast Tribes in Final Fantasy XIV. Beast Tribes are unique races that Warriors of Light can gain reputation with, helping them with their exception circumstances and receiving rare rewards along the way. Here, you will find information on the different Beast Tribes of Eorzea.
There are a handful of unique races across Eorzea. Those races who live apart from civilized society are referred to as Beastmen, and they live in groups across the land. Some are friendly and some are hostile, but they all have their own unique issues and quests for players to undertake.
Tribal Quests, formerly known as beast tribes, offer daily quests to players, which reward them with unique currency. Tribal quest currency can be exchanged for rare and unique items at vendors, but players must first rank up their reputation in order to purchase the best items. Tribal Quests are not only for Disciples of War or Magic - some wish to enlist the help of Disciples of the Hand and Land! They are a great source of daily experience points, but players can only complete a maximum of 12 quests per day.
Note that some pages will refer to Tribal Quests as Beast Tribes. They are the same thing, and were referred to as such before the Endwalker expansion. Veterans of the game may be more familiar with the older terminology, but as tribes become more encompassing, a new inclusive term was created to refer to these friendly races.
How to Unlock Tribal Quests
To unlock Tribal Quests, players must have first completed the main scenario quest In Pursuit of the Past at level 41, after the quest The Heretic among Us. This unlocks five quests located at Grand Company halls which correspond to the five tribes introduced in A Realm Reborn. Further tribes in subsequent expansions also require main scenario quest completion in those expansions. Specific requirements are listed on each expansion's tribal page.
As players complete tribal quests, they will gain reputation with that tribe. As they gain reputation, they can rank up with that tribe, gaining their trust and unlocking more items to purchase from the vendor and new quests. Of note is a special mount exclusive to each tribe that is purchased with gil once players have reached sufficient reputation. There are nine different reputation ranks once players have unlocked a beast tribe.
- Neutral requires 150 reputation to rank up;
- Recognized requires 360 reputation to rank up;
- Friendly requires 510 reputation to rank up;
- Trusted requires 720 reputation to rank up;
- Respected requires 990 reputation to rank up;
- Honored requires 1320 reputation to rank up;
- Sworn requires 1730 reputation to rank up;
- Allied (ARR) or Bloodsworn require a special quest to rank up;
Beast tribes can start at different reputations depending on the tribe, and have different reputation limits. For example, all tribes in the Stormblood and Shadowbringers expansions start at Friendly. In addition, the rate at which you gain reputation differs from tribe to tribe. To view your current reputation, head to the reputation tab in the Character window.
While Tribal quests reward gil and experience, they also reward a unique currency to that beast tribe. This currency is used to purchase items from the beast tribe vendors, although you can purchase some items from vendors with gil. You can view these currencies in the Tribal tab of the Currencies menu. To learn more about currencies, visit our guide.
