Once the first step of ontaining Final Fantasy XIV's oldest relic, the Zodiac Weapon, is done, things quickly get harder. You'll also be able to get the first glowing effect on your weapon. In this guide we'll cover how to upgrade your ilevel 80 relic into its Zenith and then Atma evolutions.

How to upgrade your A Realm Reborn relics to Zenith and Atma Weapons

The Zodiac Weapons were introduced back in Patch 2.28 of Final Fantasy XIV, and are not your optimal damage-dealing weapon anymore. While they’re still a good option for glamour, the grind to get them can be quite hard.

If you missed our first guide on how to obtain the initial version of your A Realm Reborn relic, please feel free to visit our dedicated guide here.

The evolution of your relic to will take a while from here on, except for the Zenith step.

In fact, the Zenith step is really easy, contrasting significantly with what’s coming.

FFXIV: Upgrading the Zodiac Relic to Zenith

This upgrade will not ask players to complete a quest given by an NPC, but to upgrade the weapon “yourself”. You will need to interact with the furnace next Gerolt with your relic and three Tharvnairian Mists. These items can be purchased in Mor Dhona (X: 22 Y: 6.2) for 20 Poetics each.

That’s it for this step -- you will now be able to proceed to the Atma upgrade.

FFXIV Upgrade the Zodiac Relic to Atma

With your Zenith relic done, you will now be able to accept the quest called “Up in Arms”, given by Gerolt next to his forge.

This quest will ask you to drop 12 Atmas from FATEs in specific zones with your relic equipped. As this step is completely based on RNG, it can either be really quick or take a while.

Here is the complete list of the Atma locations:

  • Atma of the Maiden: Central Shroud
  • Atma of the Goat: East Shroud
  • Atma of the Archer: North Shroud
  • Atma of the Lion: Outer La Noscea
  • Atma of the Water Bearer: Upper La Noscea
  • Atma of the Crab: Western La Noscea
  • Atma of the Fish: Lower La Noscea
  • Atma of the Ram: Middle La Noscea
  • Atma of the Bull: Eastern Thanalan
  • Atma of the Scorpion: Southern Thanalan
  • Atma of the Scales: Central Thanalan
  • Atma of the Twins: Wertern Thanalan

Gathering these and reporting to the forge will upgrade your relic to Atma. The next step is known as the Animus step, and is, for me, the longest in the series.
