Patch 3.25: Hyperconductive Anima

  1. Take the quest “Finding Your Voice” from Ardashir at Azys Lla. Don’t forget to equip or put your anima in your armory/inventory.
  2. Your task: Bring 5 Aether Oil to Ardashir. It can be obtained from the following:
    • Worth 1800 Esoterics from Hismena in Idyllshire; or
    •  Reward from the weekly quest “The Gift of the Archmagus” from Koh Rabntah, Mor Dhona. It requires the completion of the Crystal Tower story arc. The first Crystal Tower quest is “Legacy of Allag” from the Outlandish Man at Revenant’s Toll, Mor Dhona.
  3. Bring the five Aether Oil and your anima weapon to Ardashir. Turn the items over to him to receive the following rewards: 518 gil, Hyperconductive Anima Weapon
  4. And then… that’s it. It’s a pretty straightforward quest this time.

ffxiv_05042016_194049.jpg

— This concludes the second part of the Anima Saga. —





Patch 3.3: Quickened Anima

  1. Take the quest “A Dream Fulfilled” from Ardashir at Azys Lla. Don’t forget to equip or put your anima in your armory/inventory.
  2. Go to Idyllshire and speak to Ulan at x6 y4.

    You will be given an Anima Glass; if you lose it, you can ask for another one from Arnott (right beside Ulan).  You will also be given Ulan’s Note which has a list of items that can be turned over for Crystal Sands.

    An Anima quest menu will then be available from Ulan.

    Important Note: Ulan will allow you to access the quest menu if you have your Anima weapon equipped. She will not open the menu if you only have the weapon in your armory or inventory.

ulan_menu

Foster the anima’s growth will give you access to a Sphere Scroll-esque feature. But worry not! This time, it won’t require copious amounts of materia:

quickening1

Notably, each Crystal Sand + Umbrite yields THREE Treated Crystal Sands, which translates to THREE POINTS for your quickening.

The required items are Crystal Sand and Umbrite. How to acquire them?

  • Umbrite: Hismena, Idyllshire – Esoterics (Others) for 300 esoterics each
  • Crystal Sand: From Ulan’s Exchange Items for Crystal Sand option

240 points divided by 3 Treated Crystal Sand = 80. Going by this calculation, you need at most 80 pieces of Umbrite and Crystal Sand, which would create 240 Treated Crystal Sands. However, I recommend treating only 40 pieces of Umbrite and Crystal Sand. You’ll see the reason in the next section.

For now, see the list below for the items that can be exchanged for Crystal Sand:

quickening_neuflune

Next up, upon reaching 120/240 points, the Anima will feel “complete”.

anima_120points

A cutscene will be shown and story-wise, it is revealed that Ulan believes that the Anima should have reached the apex of its power with only 120 Treated Crystal Sands. However, the Anima wishes to become even stronger; Ulan obliges and Ardashir goes off to have Gerolt forge a new weapon to contain the growing power of your Anima. You may then give more Treated Crystal Sands to the Anima.

ffxiv_24062016_192754

The cutscene provides an in-game explanation of the succeeding changes to the quest.

anima_120pointsplus

After the 120 points/the cutscene, when you convert Crystal Sand and Umbrite to Treated Crystal Sand, you can get a bonus (1 to 5).

quickening2

After 240 points, a cutscene will be shown. The Anima will feel “heavy” and Ulan will instruct you to take the Anima to Ardashir at Azys Lla so that the Anima’s soulstone can be transferred to a new weapon.

Next step of the quest: Unequip your Anima weapon and put it in the Armory Chest or Inventory. The Anima glass should also be in your Key Items bag. Turn the weapon over to Ardashir and a cutscene will be shown.

ffxiv_04072016_192506

The summoner weapon: Book of the Mad Queen. Wow I love the summoner relic names… Apocalypse, and now this. -cackles-

ffxiv_04072016_192540

Ardashir almost cries like a baby because a plebe like him who doesn’t have Hydaelyn’s blessing can finally see an Anima!

quickening3

The paladin Quickening Window has two “tabs”: Sword and Shield. Just click the icons on the left side to switch between the tabs.

Note: After the first completion of A Dream Fulfilled, you will be able to torture yourself again- er, retake the quest for a different job.

Another Note: If you talk to Ulan while equipped with a job that has already completed A Dream Fulfilled, you will be presented with two options:

  • Recondition the anima of a different weapon.
  • Recondition the anima of your equipped weapon.

Reconditioning will allow you to re-assign the stats of your weapon. It does not require any Umbrite (thank the Twelve!) but it does require Crystal Sands.

List of Quickened Anima Weapons:
Information from the Achievements Log. Please note that these items can only be equipped by JOBS and not by CLASSES (e.g. Book of the Mad Queen can only be equipped by a Summoner, not by an Arcanist)

  1. Sword and Shield of the Twin Thegns (Paladin)
  2. Sultan’s Fists (Monk)
  3. Axe of the Bloody Emperor (Warrior)
  4. Trident of the Overlord  (Dragoon)
  5. Bow of the Autarch (Bard)
