We’re almost done with the entire line of Anima Relic Weapons. This guide will help you unlock your Sharpened Anima Relic Weapon, the sixth step for Relic Weapons introduced in the Heavensward expansion of Final Fantasy XIV. This time around, we have a relatively straightforward grind. These weapons are no longer best-in-slot, so you’re doing these quests for Glamour purposes and the sheer joy of completion. If you’re looking for another phase, you can head back to the primary guide for the Anima Relic Weapon questline.
How to Unlock Your Sharpened Anima Relic Weapon
Once again, we’re talking with Ardashir in Azys Lla (X: 7.4, Y: 11.5), who will start you on the quest “Future Proof.” You’ll need to collect 50 Singing Clusters for Blamprest in Idyllshire (X: 7.9, Y: 6.0). Once again, you have a number of different ways to collect these items.
Option 1 – Good, Old-Fashioned Trade
The first way is to just buy the items for 40 Allagan Tomestone of Poetics from one of these vendors:
- Auriana in Mor Dhona (X: 22.7, Y: 6.6)
- Hismena in Idyllshire (X: 5.7, Y: 5.2)
- Rowena’s Representative in Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks (X: 9.0, Y: 11.1)
- Rowena’s Representative in Ul’dah – Steps of Nald (X: 9.1, Y: 8.3)
- Rowena’s Representative in New Gridania (X: 11.9, Y: 12.3)
- Rowena’s Representative in Foundation (X: 10.5, Y: 11.8)
That’s a total of 2,000 Allagan Tomestone of Poetics, for your reference.
Option 2 – Seeking Inspiration
The second option is to complete the quest “Seeking Inspiration” from Amphelice in Idyllshire (X: 7.9, Y: 5.8). This is a repeatable quest that rewards 18 Singing Clusters each time, requiring you to run Duty Roulette: Leveling three times.
Option 3 – Cut from a Different Cloth
The final option is to complete another repeatable quest. This quest, “Cut from a Different Cloth,” is available from Angelet in Idyllshire (X: 7.9, Y: 5.8). It rewards a single Singing Cluster each time for completing Duty Roulette: Level 50/60/70/80 Dungeons.
Once you have all 50 Singing Clusters, you’ll want to head back to Blamprest, who will give you Distilled Ceruleum and Moonrise. Once you have that, head back to Ardashir. He’ll give you your shiny Sharpened Anima Relic Weapon.
