  • After expressing his gratitude, Jalzahn informs you he will return to his native Radz-at-Han ere long. However, he has one last favor to ask of you: deliver a bottle of Sunshine─an incomparable liquor distilled in the alchemist's very own cellarage─to Gerolt as a gift.
  • Though he would have preferred to receive the liquor from Jalzahn in person, Gerolt unsurprisingly accepts the present. Much to your surprise, however, the smith reveals that there is yet work to be done─awakening sentience itself within your Zodiac Weapon. Indeed, it would seem the arms of legend consciously bonded with the soul of their bearers. Upon overhearing this, Jalzahn pledges to postpone his homewards journey. He posits that certain varieties of crystal can transfer a sense─a fragment of consciousness─via soul resonance, and thereby awaken the sentience slumbering within your weapon. To obtain these crystals, Gerolt tasks you with obtaining an introduction to Remon, a man of the black market, from Rowena in Revenant's Toll. Go now and speak with her.
  • According to Rowena, Remon holds an old grudge against Gerolt─the result of an unpaid loan─and will not deal with any friend of the blacksmith without an apology from the man himself. Return to Hyrstmill and inform Gerolt of this, and that Remon resides in his “usual haunt.”
  • According to Gerolt, Remon's bitterness stems not from the loan unpaid, but rather from a love unrequited─though he will say no more on the subject. Jalzahn urges Gerolt to make his amends with a gift: the bottle of Sunshine. Once you, too, have added your voice to the proceedings, Gerolt reluctantly gives up his prized liquor. Take the bottle of Sunshine and seek out Remon in Swiftperch.
  • Remon, a fellow with many, many connections, has anticipated your coming. He accepts Gerolt's apology, and offers to trade you mahatma in exchange for aught that will profit Rowena. Speak to him again when you wish to begin your dealings.

Edit Rise and Shine's Dialogue

This walkthrough was originally written during Patch 2.51. The values in-game (total resonance needed and amount received per activity) have been drastically reduced since Heavensward's release. The information below is left in its original form for archival purposes, with the exception of the values that were changed (the numbers) are in italics to attempt to show that what's listed here might be different from in-game. Players wishing to complete this quest can still use this walkthrough as an outline, but are asked to remember that the exact numbers have been changed drastically so one should not need to plan an entire day around completing this step.
Completing one normal dungeon with the 'bonus' amount of resonance is enough to complete 1 Mahatma, 3 lvl50 EX Trials is enough too (without a bonus).

  • Paladins only need to affix mahatma to Excalibur. Increasing the soul resonance of Excalibur to maximum will have the same effect on the Aegis Shield.

After completing Rise and Shine, you will need to acquire soul resonance from completing certain activities with mahatma affixed to your Zodiac Weapon.

If this is not your first Zodiac weapon then you will not need to complete this quest. You can proceed directly to Remon in Swiftperch to begin the mahatma stage.

Each mahatma costs 50 Poetics from Remon in Swiftperch, and only one mahatma can be attached at a time.

You will need 500 soul resonance to complete each mahatma. Upon completing certain activities, you will get a notice about how much soul resonance was obtained (for example, "Your Zodiac Weapon pulses gently with a sense of assertion.")

Feeble: 50 soul resonance
Faint: 100 soul resonance
Gentle: 200 soul resonance
Steady: 300 soul resonance
Forceful: 600 soul resonance
Nigh Sings: 800 soul resonance

By using Zodiac Glass item obtained from the Mmmmmm, Soulglazed Relics quest, you can check on the total soul resonance glazed onto your weapon. If you misplaced your Zodiac glass, you may obtain a replacement by speaking with Drake at Hyrstmill.

As you progress in tiers, the weapon image will change by increasing in soul resonance.

No Sense: 0 - 49
Indistinct Sense: 50-99
Faint Sense: 100-149
Slight Sense: 150-199
Modest Sense: 200-249
Distinct Sense: 250-299
Robust Sense: 300-349
Vigorous Sense: 350-399
Intense Sense: 400-449
Extreme Sense: 450-499
Full Soul Resonance: 500+ (Complete) (Updated on 14/03/2021)

Soul resonance is collected by participating in a fate, dungeon, raid, pvp, or trial. Each event produces a base amount of soul resonance and can receive a bonus to increase the amount of soul resonance produced. Soul resonance production bonuses last for a two hour window. Not all events will receive a soul resonance production bonus during this time. At the end of the window, event bonuses will change. All events that are started during this window will receive the bonus upon completion, even if completion occurs after the change in windows. Windows and bonuses are the same across all servers.

Soul Resonance Values By Event:

  • FATE | Base: Feeble | Bonus: None
  • Wolves Den | Base: Feeble | Bonus: Faint
  • Map (Alexandrite) | Base: Faint | Bonus: None
  • Turn 2, 4 | Base: Faint | Bonus: Gentle
  • Primal (HM) | Base: Faint | Bonus: Gentle
  • Primal (EX) | Base: Gentle | Bonus: Steady
  • Turn 1, 5 | Base: Gentle | Bonus: Steady
  • Second Coil | Base: Gentle | Bonus: None
  • Any ARR Levelling Dungeon | Base: Steady | Bonus: Forceful
  • Any ARR Lv50 Dungeon | Base: Gentle | Bonus: Steady
  • Frontlines | Base: Steady | Bonus: Forceful
  • Labyrinth of the Ancients | Base: Gentle | Bonus: Steady
  • Syrcus Tower | Base: Forceful | Bonus: Nigh Sings
  • World of Darkness | Base: Forceful | Bonus: Nigh Sings

Once you have obtained 500 soul resonance, return to Remon and obtain a new mahatma.

Once you have used all twelve varieties of mahatma and increased the soul resonance to the point of awakening, return to JalzahnEdit Rise and Shine's Notes
