Final Fantasy XIV previews Anima weapons and a new side story

    
20
Here's the weird zone that no one has seen in forever, you live here now.
Veterans of Final Fantasy XIV know that the weaponsmith Gerolt is perhaps the most talented smith in Eorzea. That’s a good thing, since there’s no other reason in the world why anyone would deal with the cantankerous drunken jerk. He’s going to be dealing with players again, however; the upcoming Anima weapon quests will center around working with Gerolt and a scholar from the Near East to create even greater weapons than those that have existed before. It’s a big part of what players can expect going into patch 3.15.

The interquel patch will also introduce a new set of side story quests centering around the Saint Endalim’s Scholisticate, the most notable seminary in all of Ishgard. Revelations at the end of the Heavensward story leave the future clergy of the Holy See in quite a state, and player characters will be the ones to start sorting out the situation. No word yet on when 3.15 will be available, although even money would place it not too far removed from the next Letter from the Producer LIVE.

At one time a cannon was an “ultimate weapon” tanks fighter planes bombers and so on.
“ultimate” weapons change as new things are made/discovered. Doesn’t nake them any less ultimate for the time

This is true they JUST enabled the ability to get light solo while unsynched.

I am kindof the opposite of most opinions here, I welcome these weapons being a huge grind but it is conditional. The long term effort needs to be worth it. Worth it to me means it should be top quality (competitive/better than the alternative even if different), unique stats, not just more linear growth, and lastly no retroactive nerfs to the acquisition of them. 

Understandably what I want from this content is very different from what others want and the devs of ffxiv currently lean away from my perspective so its extremely unlikely to happen.

bakkahentai2600 Tizmah1 I think it’s more that if we keep calling these weapons the ultimate weapon, are they really the ultimate weapon? :P

Can’t wait for the next expansion where the new relics/anima weapons are even more powerful then anything ever beforeee.

Theres a tip going round that you can go into satasha unsynched at lvl.60 with a light farming level relic equipped, clear it in about 6 minutes for 100 light an do this 10-20 times to do what took months of farming garuda extreme back in the day. Still got another 400mb to reinstall the game and try it myself but i know my NIN relic is in dire need of light and if you can skip the new weapons earlier stages it cant hurt :p

Tizmah1  The Zodiac Weapons are a pain in the ass to get, attune, and upgrade. They require patience and dilligence. I’ve seen like 1 or 2 people with all of them – most just have one. The new ones will be the same way.

Doesn’t getting a new ultimate weapon all the time kind of make it…less ultimate in the end?
