    1 - Pre-requisite: Obtain a Relic Weapon

    2 - Earn 900 Allagan Tomestones of Mythology (the one that caps at 300 points per week)

    3 - Purchase 3x Thavnairian Mist from Auriana in Revenant's Toll

    4 - Go to Hyrstmill and interact with the Forge near Gerolt. Exchange your Relic Weapon and the Mist for Relic +1

    NOTE: For Paladin, you have to upgrade the shield and sword separately. The sword takes 2 Mist and the shield only 1, so it costs the same overall.



    Q: I started the Relic Quest in 1.0. What happened to my progress?
    A: After you complete the Main Scenario Quests you will be able to resume your partial quest. It will place you in the approximate step as where you used to be. For example, if you were up to the AV/CC speedruns for Mythril & Salts you will be up to the Dhorme Chimera. If you were up to Ifrit Extreme, you will now be in-between Garuda (Hard) and Titan (Hard). If you had only just started after exchanging Hamlet seals, you will pretty much be right at the start.

    Q: My carried-over quest has me up to Titan (Hard). Do I have to Kill Ifrit and Garuda to get there?
    A: Yes. The Relic quest does NOT unlock the primals. They are accessed through the post-MSQ quest chains in the Waking Sands. You will need to progress through the other primals to get to Titan.

    Q: I have a whole bunch of 1.0 Relic Quest items left over like double melds, Miser's Mythril/Alumina Salts and Hamlet Seals. Are they any use?
    A: Not really. The double melds would now contain cracked materia and are the wrong weapons now the quest requirements have changed. You could extract the material to use the base weapon, or just turn the melds in for tomestones. The AV/CC speedrun items have no use at all, not even the salts, as you have to kill the Chimera for quest progression. Hamlet seals can be turned in for tomestones.

    Q: I am not yet able to start the Relic Quest. Is there anything I can do to get ready?
    A: You can prepare the melded weapon required in Step 7 in advance, either by buying or crafting and spiritbonding/converting materia. If you have access to high-level dungeons, you can start to farm the 900 tomestones of philosophy needed for the last step. Apart from that you can simply work on your gear and skill to tackle the content. The majority of the quest steps can only be completed while on the quest itself.

    Q: Can I work on more than one relic at once?
    A: No you can't. You can only have one Relic Reborn quest at a time. You must fully complete the relic or abandon before starting the quest for a different class.

    Q: I have changed my mind for which relic I want. Can I abandon and start a new quest?
    A: Yes you can, but you would lose all progress on the other quest. So if you had turned in the weapon and done some of the other steps, you would lose it all. If you went back to redo the quest you previously abandoned, you would have to start from scratch again.

    Q: How do I get the correct Materia?
    There are 2 factors that determine the materia gained from converting gear, item level and purpose. Item Level (not to be confused with gear equipping level) is an indicator of the 'quality' of a piece of gear. For example a piece of Aetherial r30 gloves will have a higher iLevel than a pair of crafted r30 gloves. To get Tier III materia you need to covert gear with an iLevel of 45 or more. As for the type of materia gained, that has to do with the purpose/stats of the gear you are converting. A piece of mage gear is more likely to convert to materia that has mage-benefiting stats like Quicktongue or Intelligence. A piece of tank gear is more likely to convert to materia that has tank-benefiting stats like Battledance or Vitality. Please note that there is a lot of RNG in conversion and you are not guaranteed to get what you need all the time.

    Q: How do I craft the weapons or the components for the weapons?
    A: I have listed the basic recipes and components above. For more details on items and recipes, I recommend visiting www.xivdb.com<http://www.xivdb.com>. As for crafting, you can check the forums or search the web for crafting guides.

    Q: Can I turn in a melded weapon that I have used (i.e. it is bonded to me)?
    A: Yes you can.

    Q: Can I turn in a HQ melded weapon?
    A: Yes you can.

    Q: Can I help someone with the instanced battles without being on the relic quest myself?
    A: Yes you can, provided that you have unlocked access to any content that requires unlocking (like dungeons and primal hardmodes)

    Q: Looking at this guide, the Relic quest seems so easy ... is it?
    Depends on your skill level. There are 2 main road blocks in the relic quest - Chimera and Titan (Hard). Chimera it isn't duty-found, so if you don't have a FC/LS party you may have to stand in town or Coerthas shouting for a pick up group. It's not that hard a fight, but it requires coordination and communication with stuns/blocks/silencing. The primals is the next big hurdle. Ifrit and Garuda could be completed with AF gear and standard weapons, but around Garuda and definitely for Titan you will need to start looking at upgrading gear with primal weapons, r50 dungeon greens and/or darklight. Also if you suffer from lag or a high ping, you may struggle dodging Titan's attacks.



    Good luck everyone! Happy Relic-ing!

    Question: I had already turned in my double melded mail breaker and was working on the items from CC/AV when the servers closed. That being said do you know if I will start at some point further in this quest that at the start?

    You will probably start at around step 8 or 9, though your quest log will have corrected your previous actions to match the new quest line i.e. it will say you handed in a Aeolian Scimitar. Seeing as how the requirement for the AV item is gone, you will probably come in on needing to go to Coerthas

    If you have hamlet seals in your inventory you can exchange them for DL currency. However if you have handed them in you will probably find yourself in the first 3-4 steps and not much further T_T

    For the purpose of Relic Weapon quest, then yes. If it is melded with cracked materia you can exchange it for currency. Otherwise it would still be a decent weapon.

    I heard these are available from Wanderer's Palace. I am not sure wether they are chest or mob drops. Some of them used to be available in 1.0 from big world NMs so they might be available in Market Wards

    Also it appears Scholar is linked to the Sahagin beastcamp.

    Question: I was on Ifrit EX in 1.0, do I start my relic quest on Titan HARD? However, I noticed that you have to defeat Ifrit HARD to unlock Garuda HARD, and defeat that to unlock Titan HARD? Basically, I have to restart the fight against Garuda HARD correct?
