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


Unlock the Anima Weapon System

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


Phase 1: Base Weapon

Step 1: Soul without Life (FATEs) (iLevel 170)

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 Crystals 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)

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 the A Realm Reborn duties in an unsync'd party!
  • Speak with Ardashir in southern Thanalan.
  • Speak with Ardashir in the South Shroud.
  • Speak with Ardashir in the Pillars.
  • 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)

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.
