FFXIV 3.0 Relic / Anima Weapon Guide (ALL STEPS)

3.3 UPDATED Find out how to obtain and upgrade your new 3.0 relic weapon. Looks great, but will grind your soul to dust (:

Step 4: Hyperconductive

Quick Navigation: [Start 170 :: 10 Dungeons 200] [Base Anima: 210] [230 Hyperconductive]
[240 : “Novus II”]


Starting Quest: Finding Your Voice
Rewards: 230 Hyperconductive Majestas
Previous step: Base Anima: 210
Next step“Novus II”: 240

Something feels wrong about this step: because it’s actually not so bad….

SO in this step you need to obtain 5x Aether Oil. How do you get Aether Oil?  Well there’s only 2 ways –

Aether Oil Weekly Quest

Considered (by me) to be the sane method. You can get a free Aether Oil every week by completing the quest Gift of the Archmagus. Which requires you to complete:

  • Labyrinth of the Ancients (CT)
  • Syrcus Tower (ST)
  • World of Darkness (WoD)

AKA the three 24-man raids from 2.0. This isn’t actually a huge time-sink.


Aether Oil via Esoterics

1800 Esoterics tomestones gets you 1 Aether Oil. You can buy this from Hismena in Idyllshire (5,5)~ish.

Keep in mind this is the kind of step that usually gets nerfed heavily down the line.

How do I get Esoterics!?  Any 3.0 Dungeon, Trial, Raid or Map. (3.0!). Also carrying people through trials they have yet to complete. Oh Vanu Vanu gives ’em out too.

I don’t know what else to say about this method. It’s really simple.


Personally I’m just going to stick to the weekly quest. This step is oddly easy, I hope they aren’t just charging up the grinding energy for the next step. Or perhaps this is a way for Yoshi-P to say sorry for the previous steps shenanigans? Haha. Either way, while I feel the ease of this step is very welcome, it lacks character overall.

In any case supposedly the next step will have customizable stats just like Nexus! Let’s see!

  1. Just an fyi, you only need one of each luminous crystal now instead of three. So just 6 altogether, one from each area!

  2. I would hardly call adding accuracy to the SCH book being tryhard after seeing how many times my energy drain misses mid-raid below 500 accuracy… :P More like the most sensible decision, unless of course you’re not into raiding at all which is fair enough.

  3. Thanks for the awesome guide thus far! Will you also be compiling one for the latest step as well? I would love your recommendation as to how I should allocate points for the latest BLM weapon!

  4. beast tribe quest cap is 12 so u can actually do 4 beast tribes a day (unless u reach limit for reputation, after unlocking higher rep lvl u can get 3 quests again)

  5. For the crafted item mats in Diadem, are they available in all difficulties? Or is it just a specific difficulty?
