A Relic Reborn Walkthrough

Step 1: Complete Main Scenario Quest, All Class and Job quests for that respective weapon.

Step 2: Talk to ‘Nedrick Ironheart‘ in Vesper Bay who will give you the quest ‘A Relic Reborn

Step 3: Talk to ‘Rowena’ in Revenant’s Toll

Step 4: Talk to ‘Gerolt‘ in Hyrstmill (Northwest of Fallgourd Float – take a Chocobo Porter)

Step 5: Gerolt will ask you to find your respective ‘Broken Weapon‘ go to:

  • Natalan: BARDDRAGOON
  • Sapsa Spawning Grounds: SCHOLAR
  • Sylphlands: SUMMONER
  • Zaha’rak: MONK, PALADIN

Step 6: Present Gerolt with your Job specific weapon double melded with Grade III Materia. (either buy these weapons from the Marketplace or look below to find out how to get these weapons)

  • BARD: Longarm’s Composite Bow + 2 Heaven’s Eye Materia III
  • BLACKMAGE: Sanguine Scepter + 2 Savage Might Materia III
  • DRAGOON: Champion’s Lance + 2 Savage Aim Materia III
  • MONK: Wilding Cesti + 2 Savage Aim Materia III
  • PALADIN: Aeolian Scimitar + 2 Battledance Materia III
  • SCHOLAR: Erudite’s Picatrix Of Healing + 2 Quicktongue Materia III

  • WARRIOR: Barbarian’s Bardiche + 2 Battledance Materia III
  • WHITEMAGE: Madman’s Whispering Rod + 2 Quicktongue Materia III

NOTE: This step is where a lot of people are getting stuck, for one, Grade III materia for this quest costs an arm and a leg… and secondly not many people know how to meld materia. If you are patient, you can spirit bond level 48 and above armor and weapons and convert them into materia, if you are lucky you will get the type of materia you need for the quest, otherwise sell the materia to earn enough to buy form the marketplace. To meld materia into armore you need to find a Disciple of Hand who is level 50 to meld into your gear


Step 7: Obtain ‘Alumina Salts‘ from fighting the D’horme Chimera in Coerthas (Northeast of Camp Dragonhead). You must defeat the Chimera as the Job you will get the relic weapon with. Once defeated bring the salts back to Gerolt.

  1. Also, if you abandon your relic quest for some reason (like you decide mid-way you’d rather go for your relic on a different job first), then you must go see Gerolt in North Shroud to restart the quest again. NOT Nedric if you’re restarting.

  2. Might be worth mentioning that after you complete step 7. That you cant just head right to AK like the guide suggests, you actually need to talk to Rowena in RT and she will give you the quest to head into AK. (Found out the hard way)
