Resistance Weapons are the level 80 Relic Weapons for Shadowbringers released in Patch 5.25. Players need to complete the Resistance Weapons quest chain to obtain one of the relics, and they are heavily tied in with the Save the Queen: Blades of Gunnhildr storyline. As players advance through the Resistance Weapons quests they will be able to obtain job-specific weapons which can be enhanced as they progress. Certain Resistance Weapon quests employ a system which will require players to proceed using the same class or job with which they accepted the quest.

Lore

For years, Bozja─homeland of the Hrothgar─has remained at the mercy of Garlean rulers. But the Empire has fallen into disarray, and the people of Doma and Ala Mhigo have risen up to challenge their authority. The Bozjans, while heartened at this news, yet lack the means to join the rebellion. To that end, they seek a standard under which their people may gather. A weapon of legend...

Augmented Resistance Weapons (iLvl 500)

Main article: Augmented Resistance Weapons/Quest

To upgrade their weapons, players need to be level 80 with a Disciple of War or Disciple of Magic and the Main Scenario Quest Main Scenario QuestVows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty and both the Side Quest Feature QuestWhere Eagles Nest and the Side Quest Feature QuestA Sober Proposal, as well as own one of the Resistance Weapons obtained in the Side Quest Feature QuestFire in the Forge.

Players can take the first step to upgrading their relics by speaking to Zlatan in Gangos and completing the Repeatable Quest Repeatable Feature QuestFor Want of a Memory by trading in 20 Tortured Memory of the Dying Tortured Memories of the Dying, 20 Sorrowful Memory of the Dying Sorrowful Memories of the Dying and 20 Harrowing Memory of the Dying Harrowing Memories of the Dying obtained as random drops from Skirmishes, Critical Engagements, and enemies found in The Bozjan Southern Front or as guaranteed drops from FATEs located in Heavensward areas. You do not need to have your Resistance weapon equipped, or even be the same job, to earn tortured/sorrowful/harrowing memories.

Although Critical Engagements may not be the fastest way to collect memories of the dying, it's highly recommended that you run Critical Engagements anyway until you reach rank 10, because that's required for one of the later steps.

Augmented Resistance weapons look identical to their non-augmented versions, but can be dyed.

After reaching rank 10, you may prefer to farm any remaining memories of the dying from Heavensward FATEs, as the drop rate is low in Bozja, but 100% from Heavensward FATEs. Memories can be acquired from the following zones:

You do not need to have your Resistance weapon equipped, or even be the same job, to earn tortured/sorrowful/harrowing memories.

You do not need to have your Augmented Resistance weapon equipped, or even be the same job, to earn bitter memories. Please note that you have to do them "properly".

Main article: Law's Order Weapons/Quest

Before you can proceed, you will first need to raise your Resistance Rank in Bozja to 10 and complete Castrum Lacus Litore. Then you'll need to complete the one-time Side Quests Feature QuestA Sign of What's to Come, Feature QuestFit for a Queen, and Feature QuestIn the Queen's Image to advance the Save the Queen: Blades of Gunnhildr story. This will require completing a solo story instanced duty, as well as clearing the Delubrum Reginae raid.

  • Defeating the final boss of Castrum Lacus Litore grants a guaranteed 5 memories.
  • Clearing any Crystal Tower alliance raid grants a guaranteed 1 memory.
  • Completing critical engagements in The Bozjan Southern Front has a chance of granting 1 memory.

As with previous steps, you do not need to have your Recollection weapon equipped, or even be the same job, to earn loathsome memories.

When upgraded to Law's Order, the weapons will have a new model, and will no longer glow.

First One-Time Grind

Before you can unlock the ability to augment your Law's Order weapon, you will need to complete the one-time Side Quest Feature QuestThe Resistance Remembers, which requires you to collect and turn in 18 Haunting Memory of the DyingHaunting Memories of the Dying and 18 Vexatious Memory of the DyingVexatious Memories of the Dying. This grind only needs to be done once, and does not need to be repeated for additional weapons.

(*) chances have been increased in patch 5.45

Augmented Law's Order Weapons (iLvl 515)

Main article: Augmented Law's Order Weapons/Quest

Afterwards, to upgrade your weapon you will need to complete the Repeatable Quest Repeatable Feature QuestA New Path of Resistance, which requires you to collect and turn in 15 Timeworn ArtifactTimeworn Artifacts. Upon turning them in, you will need to decide how to allocate the stats on your weapon.

When upgraded to Augmented Law's Order, the weapons will gain a glow effect.

Reallocation of Stats (Optional)

Should you decide the stats on your Augmented Law's Order weapon need to be changed, you can do so by talking to the Allagan Node (x5.9, y4.8) in Gangos and selecting "Forged Anew". You will need to equip your Augmented Law's Order weapon and turn in 4 phials of Aetherial SealantAetherial Sealant, which can be purchased from Auriana in Revenant's Toll (x: 22.7 - y: 6.7) or Hismena in Idyllshire (x: 5.8 - y:5.2) for 100 Allagan Tomestone of PoeticsAllagan Tomestones of Poetics each, or Allagan Tomestone of Poetics 400 total.

Second One-Time Grind

After completing Feature QuestA New Playing Field you can complete the one-time quest Feature QuestWhat Dreams Are Made Of, which explains the next steps and requires you to talk to some NPCs. After that you will need to complete the following one-time quests: Feature QuestSpare Parts, Feature QuestTell Me a Story, and Feature QuestA Fond Memory, you can pick them all up at once. This grind only needs to be done once, and does not need to be repeated for additional weapons.

Quest Source of Loot Item 1 Source of Loot Item 2
Feature QuestSpare Parts Compact AxleCompact Axle
1 per skirmish in Zadnor Southern Plateau (Zone 1)
1 per Alexander raid clear (1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10)
Compact AxleCompact Spring
2 per critical engagement in Zadnor Southern Plateau (Zone 1)
1 per Alexander raid clear (3, 4, 7, 8, 11, 12)
Feature QuestTell Me a Story A Day in the Life: Battles for the RealmA Day in the Life: Battles for the Realm
1 per skirmish in Zadnor Western Plateau (Zone 2)
1 per Omega raid clear (1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10)
A Day in the Life: Beyond the RiftA Day in the Life: Beyond the Rift
2 per critical engagement in Zadnor Western Plateau (Zone 2)
1 per Omega raid clear (3, 4, 7, 8, 11, 12)
Feature QuestA Fond Memory Bleak Memory of the DyingBleak Memory of the Dying
1 per skirmish in Zadnor Northern Plateau (Zone 3)
1 per Eden raid clear (1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10)
Lurid Memory of the DyingLurid Memory of the Dying
2 per critical engagement in Zadnor Northern Plateau (Zone 3)
1 per Eden raid clear (3, 4, 7, 8, 11, 12)

For all three of these quests, you cannot use the Undersized Party option to run the raids unsynced. You have to run them "properly" with full parties at their appropriate levels.

A quick and easy way to get these items is to run the following instances:

- Alexander 2 (The Cuff of the Father) and 4 (The Burden of the Father)

- Deltascape 1 and 3

- Eden's Gate 1 (Resurrection) and 3 (Inundation)

You only get one drop per run BUT the short wait times and the fast clears make up for it.

After completing the three quests listed above, complete the one time quest Feature QuestA Done Deal.

Blade's Weapons (iLvl 535)

Main article: Blade's Weapons/Quest

Next, you will need to do the repeatable quest Repeatable Feature QuestIrresistible, which requires you to collect 15 Raw EmotionRaw Emotions. These can be obtained from the following sources:

  • 3 per clear of The Dalriada.
  • 2 per clear of Delubrum Reginae.
  • 1 per clear of any level 70 Stormblood dungeon.
  • A chance of 1 per clear of any 10 floors of Heaven-on-High. The higher the floor, the greater the drop chance.

Upon turning in the quest, you will need to decide how to allocate the stats on your weapon.

This step will complete the Blade's weapon, which will gain a new model and a glow effect. In addition to the Replica that Regana sells, she will also offer a "Matte Replica" version of the Blade's weapon, which has the same model, but no glow effect. Replicas cost Gil 1,000 each.
