Its going to bother me waiting for 5 days so id rather ask this question an hope somebody has an answer. How do you get more guildheist quests? Is it by level or each little camp/town are you suppose to talk to the guildheist npc and he opens more up? I went to other camps and I just never talked to the npc and its bothering me if I should have talk to them. People kept saying to save the guildheist quests for your alt classes since they give big xp bonus 1st try and I just stupidly made the assumption I shouldn't talk to npcs after talking to the first one that gave me 1 gh quest.

Also me an my fiancé grouped together and will group till 50 on one class and we didn't see a target assist open? Did previous versions have this option or am I missing how to turn this option on? She had little trouble sometimes targeting the mob I was going after since there is a lot of mobs.

First, Guildhest is different from Guildleves. You don't need Guildleve allowances to do Guildhests, and you can activate a Guildhest through the Duty Finder without having to go talk to a Guildhest NPC. New Guildhests will become available as you clear prerequisite Guildhests, or reach the minimum level for them, or perhaps both.

Levequests (which are Guildleves) are specific to the camp. I've seen 6 different Battle (for DoW/DoM) Levequests for a single level range from the same NPC, though only 4 of them will show up at a time. If you complete one of those Levequests, it disappears from the list of 4 and gets replaced with one of the other two you couldn't do before. I don't know if it's always 6 possible levequests per NPC, or if some have more and some have less.

These levequests automatically become available when you hit the minimum level for them. The only thing you have to do to unlock Guildleve access is to do an introduction levequest at a new camp. Not every camp will require it. I think camps in the same zone may be unlocked together (e.g. the two camps in Central Shroud).

I don't know what they allowed during earlier phases of Beta. But at some point during Phase 3, I recall that DoH levequests always gave the exp reward to the class that is needed to craft the item, regardless of the class you were at the time you turned in the item.

With DoL and DoW/DoM levequests, I assume that changing your class after you complete the levequest but before you get the reward will either cause the levequest to be abandoned or the reward will still be given to the class you were on when you initiated the levequest.

Yeah first run in a guildhest does xp about twice to xp but really doesn't really matter there fast to do and repeatable so you can pretty much grind them in a static ground.

How many guildheists are there exactly as in per lvl range like lvl 10-15 15-20 etc. I seemed to only have one and im lvl 17 although I haven't talked to just one guild npc in uldah region. Do you just talk to npc in each camp region and he offers more to do?

No. For Guildhests, you need to (assuming you're Level 10+) talk to the Battlewarden to unlock the first one - "Basic Partying," or something like that. Then enter DF, tick that, group up & profit. This unlocks the 2nd one for Level 10. You can now do either through DF - no need to chat with the 'Warden. Once you complete this one (battling a giant suit of armour + some zombie adds) AND level to 15, you get the 3rd one unlocked in DF. Beat this, the 4th becomes available. I believe this is the pattern - 2 every 5 levels, and you need to have cleared ALL previous hests to tackle the current one. Also, you only get the first listed on for the current level available UNTIL you beat it, then the 2nd one comes up.

Hmm first two starts at lvl 10 th then they unlock as you progress I'm not sure about talking to the guildhest warden, I cant remember if I ever did talk to him, in saying that I only started doing the guildhests after I capped my first lvl 20. Maybe I did hail the guildhest warden not knowing.

I can personally attest to the fact that you don't have to keep going back to the NPC. I talked to the NPC before I did the tutorial Guildhest. After that, I simply checked the Duty Finder and noticed newer Guildhests were already there.

And unlike Levequests, you don't even have to travel back to a camp with a Guildhest NPC to get your reward (you get warped to the NPC inside the instanced zone where the Guildhest occured to get your reward after you clear the objective).
