Pre-Requisite

Before begin to create your Novus Zodiac Weapons, you must have completed your Animus Zodiac Weapon. Through the course of the quest you will need:

  • Possession of, or substantial Gil Gil for, a large amount of materia.


Main Weapon Quest

Feature QuestCelestial Radiance

Starting NPC: Jalzahn
Starting Location: Hyrstmill, North Shroud (x30,y19)
  1. Speak with Jalzahn in Hyrstmill (x30,y19) with your Animus Zodiac Weapon equipped. He will explain that it may be possible for your weapon to become stronger with materia but that conventional melding will not work due to the preclusive presence of soul energy.
  2. Travel to Mutamix Bubblypots in The Bonfire (x23,y13).
  3. Speak with Mutamix Bubblypots's new disciple Hubairtin in The Bonfire (x23,y13). His new technique involves converting the power of materia into a form of light energy. But for Hubairtin to apply the technique he needs some Superior Enchanted Ink.
  4. Travel to Revenant's Toll in Mor Dhona and speak to Rowena (x21,y5), she will tell you to go to Auriana (x22,y6) to purchase three bottles of Superior Enchanted Ink for Allagan Tomestone of Poetics 25 Allagan Tomestone of Poetics each (Allagan Tomestone of Poetics 75 Allagan Tomestone of Poetics in total).
  5. Return to Hubairtin and hand over the bottles of Superior Enchanted Ink and he will create a Sphere Scroll for your Animus Zodiac Weapon - which will serve as the blueprint for your Novus Zodiac Weapon.


Feature QuestStar Light, Star Bright

Starting NPC: Hubairtin
Starting Location: The Bonfire, Central Thanalan (x23,y13)
An example of a completed Thyrus Novus Sphere Scroll

Jalzahn will then explain the task of building your Novus Zodiac Weapon using your Sphere Scroll. Unlike all other weapon or equipment in Eorzea you have the freedom to customs the secondary stats of your Novus Zodiac Weapon as you like. You need to successfully bind a total of 75 materia to complete your Sphere Scroll in order to create your weapon. Each materia requires a special reagent called Alexandrite. After speaking to Jalzahn, the quest will move to your "completed quest log". Once you have completed your scroll, return to Jalzahn who will finalise and create your new Novus Zodiac Weapon.

Materia

The materia you bind directly affects the stat that is increased:

Notes:

  • Each successful meld infuses the stat of materia into the scroll, granting the it 1 point in the corresponding stat.
  • You can only fuse materia of higher grades after completing a previous "tier", for stats that have a max of 44, a tier is 11 materia, the first 6 in the tier have a 100% chance of melding, followed by a 96% chance, 90% chance, 82% chance, 72% chance, and finally, a 60% chance.
  • At the start only level 1 materias can be used. As more of a particular stats / materia are added: the binding success rate decrease until you are forced to use a higher grade / level materia. Unsuccessful bindings will destroy the materia used but never the Alexandrite.
  • There is a cap on the maximum points you can put in a secondary stat and depends on your class.
  • The scroll can be infused with a maximum of five different secondary stats.
  • Your Novus Zodiac Weapon will only have the secondary stats that you put onto it - no secondary stats are transferred across from your Animus Zodiac Weapon. The only exception to this are with the healer's weapons Omnilex Novus and Thyrus Novus which get +9 Direct Hit Rate regardless.

Alexandrite

See also: Mysterious Map

Alexandrite is a special reagent used to convert and bind the materia to the Sphere Scroll. They can be gathered in three ways:

  1. Completing FATEs with a Animus Zodiac Weapon equipped (as before).
  2. Can be bought from a Hunt Billmaster in either Ul'dah, Gridania or Limsa Lominsa for Allied Seals 50 Allied Seals.
  3. From treasure chests from Mysterious Maps. Mysterious Maps can be obtained through:

Mysterious Maps are similar to normal Timeworn Maps and requires the use of Decipher and Dig skills from Treasure Hunting. These can be obtained from the quest Feature QuestTreasures and Tribulations from H'loonh in Wineport, Eastern La Noscea (x21, y21). You will need to decipher the map, and travel to the location shown in the map before diging to find a treasure chest. Upon opening a treasure chest, the mysterious map will be destroyed and monsters will spawn. You will need to kill all the monsters before you can open the chest.
