Upgrading Zodiac Braves to Zodiac Zeta

Quests: Feature QuestRise and Shine & Feature QuestThe Vital Title

The upgrade is comprised of 12 Mahatmas of the original Atmas. To upgrade your weapon, you must awaken the Soul of your weapon through a method similar to Novus light farming. You need 40 points to awaken each Mahatmas. You can obtain points from dungeons and trials. Progress can be viewed from the Zodiac Glass. You will also be notified when ascension is complete in the chat log.

  1. Talk to Remon in Swiftperch in Western La Noscea to complete Feature QuestRise and Shine. Once the quest is complete, you can now have Remon attach Mahatma to your weapon.
  2. Immediately talk to Remon in Western La Noscea again to attach the first available Mahatma for Allagan Tomestone of Poetics 50 Allagan Tomestones of Poetics.
  3. Complete each of the 12 Mahatmas individually by running dungeons, raids, or fates until your "Mahatma fully awakens a sense of assertion within your Zodiac Weapon".
  4. After each Mahatma awakens, speak with Remon to attach the next available Mahatma. Repeat the process for all 12 Mahatmas.
  5. Speak with Jalzahn at the North Shroud and select "Zodiac Weapon of Awakening".


  • Mahatma's bonus window is the same as Novus bonus window.
  • You must have the relic weapon equipped on the last boss of the dungeon or trial in order to get light credit.
  • Dungeons can also be completed undersized. As such, a convenient way to farm light points solo is The Tam-Tara Deepcroft (Level 16). Each run will give you 24 points when not on bonus, meaning 2 runs will complete the current Mahatma. Each run can be completed solo by any level 70 class in under 4 minutes in most cases. Remember that you can keep your normal weapon equipped until the last boss for quicker kills.

After finishing a Mahatma, you can get the next one from Remon in Swiftperch for 50 Allagan Tomestone of Poetics. You need to complete all 12, in order, to upgrade your weapon. They are ordered as follows:


Mahatma Awoken Sense
Mahatma of the Ram Assertion
Mahatma of the Bull Possession
Mahatma of the Twins Cogitation
Mahatma of the Crab Commiseration
Mahatma of the Lion Volition
Mahatma of the Maiden Interpretation
Mahatma of the Scales Juxtaposition
Mahatma of the Scorpion Aspiration

Mahatma of the Water-bearer Recognition
