Guide - Anima Weapons - Header.png

A young researcher hailing from the Near East has come to Eorzea in search of aid. His field of study? Anima, an essence he considers to be a reflection of the soul. Through a chance encounter with the master craftsman Gerolt, he and the legendary blacksmith have joined forces to create a weapon the likes of which the realm has never seen.



Prerequisities[edit]


Unlock the Anima Weapon System[edit]

This quest only needs to be completed once and the system will be unlocked permanently.

Phase 1: Base Weapon[edit]

Step 1: Soul without Life (FATEs) (iLevel 170)[edit]

This quest is repeatable; it can be active for one job at any given time, but must be repeated for each.

  • Visit Revenant's Toll, speaking to Rowena and Syndony.
  • Acquire 1 Luminous Crystal of each element by completing FATEs in specific areas (and returning them to Syndony).
This step may be skipped by trading Syndony a Zodiac Weapon Zeta for one of each nodule.
WARNING: The weapon will be permanently lost, but you can continue to obtain replicas from Drake IF you have completed The Vital Title.

  • Return to Ardashir in Azys Lla and trade the nodules to complete the quest and receive an iLV170 Animated weapon.


Step 2: Toughening Up (Dungeons) (iLevel 200)[edit]

This quest must be progressed on the same job on which it is accepted.

  • Accept the quest from Ardashir.
  • Complete 10 Dungeons in a specific order on the quest-accepted job. You only need to have the Animated weapon equipped when you leave the duty; you can do the entire dungeon with your normal weapon, just make sure to swap over before leaving the duty after completion!
  • You can complete all duties in an unsync'd party!
  • Speak with Ardashir in southern Thanalan.
  • Speak with Ardashir in the South Shroud.
  • Speak with Ardashir in Azys Lla to complete the quest and receive an iLV200 Awoken weapon.

Step 3: Coming into Its Own (Grind) (iLevel 210)[edit]

The ultimate goal for this (long) step is to acquire four items from Cristiana, requiring a bit of a trading game.

Each of the four items will require:
  • 10 of an "Unidentifiable" token (obtained in various ways; see below)
  • 4 of a given crafted item (LV60★); See Pages for Recipes
    • Each crafted item is also available for purchase from your Grand Company Quartermaster for 5,000 seals each.

NOTE: For this third phase of upgrading your Anima, it could happen that you'll get a "bonus". This means that you get twice the points for only handing in the items for 1 upgrade. Because of this, it is recommended getting 70 of each item (Umbrite and Crystal Sand) and then proceeding to upgrade your Anima till you are out of materials. Finally buy / trade the remaining needed materials.

Phase Four: Anima Weapon Sharpened[edit]

Future Proof (iLevel 260)[edit]

Phase Five: Final Anima Weapon[edit]

Born Again Anima (iLevel 270)[edit]

  • Complete three dungeons
  • Obtain a Newborn Soulstone
  • Complete various activities in order to obtain 2000 units of "Aetheric condensation" on your relic weapon.
    • Upon completion of Heavensward FATEs and duties of all types, as well as A Realm Reborn lv 50 dungeons (excluding MSQ dungeons) you will obtain various amounts of condensation. The amount acquired will be indicated by messages in your chat log.
    • NOTE: The Anima weapon must be equipped during these events (FATEs, duties, etc) in order to receive any light. Unequipped weapons will not accrue light, and will not make progress.
    • Each 200 units of condensation will complete a "rune" and after completing 10 runes (i.e. getting 2000 units total) you can continue with the Born Again Anima quest.
    • MSQ Dungeons The Praetorium and Castrum Meridianum do not give any units.
