Anima Weapons are the level 60 Relic Weapons for Heavensward. First released in patch 3.15, players do not need to complete the level 50 Zodiac Weapon quest chains to unlock the Anima Weapon quest chain. Players who have obtained the Zodiac Zeta Weapons will be able to skip the first step of Anima Weapon quest chain. This advantage is not job specific. For example, if players have obtained the WAR Zeta weapon they will still be able to skip while doing the DRK anima weapon.

Compared to ARR's Zodiac Weapons, the Heavensward relic steps are heavily based on items you can buy with Allagan Tomestone of Poetics Allagan Tomestones of Poetics and Grand Company Company seal Company Seals. Players can spend excess currency in advance before starting this quest chain. However, not all of the items are available for purchase before the quests have been started. After upgrading their Anima weapon to iLvl 230, players can buy glamour versions of past enhancement steps from the Restoration Node.

Relic weapons from past expansions are not intended for combat use, but for cosmetic and collection purposes. Better weapons for the same player level include those that drop from raids and those that can be bought with Allagan Tomestone of Poetics Poetics.

Lore

A young researcher hailing from the Near East has come to Eorzea in search of aid. His field of study? Anima, an essence he considers to be a reflection of the soul. Through a chance encounter with the master craftsman Gerolt, he and the legendary blacksmith have joined forces to create a weapon the likes of which the realm has never seen.

Reconditioned Anima Weapons (iLvl 240)

Main article: Reconditioned Anima Weapons/Quest

Reconditioned Anima weapons again have a new model.

This step is a bit more involved. For Repeatable Feature QuestA Dream Fulfilled, you will need to collect Umbrite icon1.png  Umbrite and Crystal sand icon1.png  Crystal Sand. The exact amount will vary due to RNG, but will generally be 57x-60x of each. Umbrite icon1.png  Umbrite can be purchased for Allagan Tomestone of Poetics 75 Allagan Tomestones of Poetics each (4275-4500 total), while Crystal sand icon1.png  Crystal Sand will require you to trade with Ulan in Idyllshire for certain items. Each trade grants 2 Crystal sand icon1.png  Crystal Sand. Most of the trade options are a poor deal, and some require items that are no longer obtainable.

The only recommended options are:

Note: depending on the economy when you are doing this, primal parts might be a very efficient way to obtain the sand. Make sure to check the market board.

See Reconditioned Anima Weapons/Quest for other trade options and further details.

Once you have acquired the items, talk to Ulan to create Refined Crystal Sand and upgrade the stats on your weapon. Once the step is complete, you can turn in the quest and upgrade your weapon.

Complete Anima Weapons (iLvl 270)

Main article: Complete Anima Weapons/Quest

Complete Anima weapons change their model yet another time, but this time they already come with their built-in light show.

This is one of the more grindy steps. Pick up the quest Repeatable Feature QuestBorn Again Anima. First you will need to complete the three dungeons Dungeon Sohm Al (Hard), Dungeon The Great Gubal Library (Hard), and Dungeon The Lost City of Amdapor (Hard). These can be done in any order.

Next, you will need to farm aetheric density. This is the main grind. You can earn aetheric density by running a variety of Heavensward activities, including FATEs, dungeons, trials, and raids with your weapon equipped. The most efficient method is generally considered to be to assemble a few max-level teammates and repeatedly farm Raid Alexander - The Eyes of the Creator (Savage) (A9S) unsynced. Your progress may be viewed using the Enhanced Anima Glass Icon.png  Enhanced Anima Glass. Talk to the Verification Node after completing the grind.

You will also need to acquire a Newborn soulstone icon1.png  Newborn Soulstone via Repeatable Feature QuestSome Assembly Required, which requires you to collect and turn in 15 Pneumite icon1.png  Pneumite, which can be purchased from Sundry Splendors for Allagan Tomestone of Poetics 100 Allagan Tomestones of Poetics each (Allagan Tomestone of Poetics 1,500 total) or from your Grand Company quartermaster for Company seal 4,000 Company Seals each (Company seal 60,000 total).

Once these steps are complete, turn in the quest to upgrade your weapon.

Glamour

You can manually glamour your current weapon with the appearance of your Anima relic weapon (at it current state) if you have a Glamour Prism and the Anima weapon in your bags.

You can't put your anima relic weapon in Glamour Dressers, but you can use replicas that became available after Gerolt introduces you to a Restoration Node when completing Repeatable Feature QuestFinding Your Voice. Replicas became available gradually as you move through stages.
