FFXIV Adventurer NIrvana

The Adventurer receiving the White Mage's Zodiac Weapon, the Nirvana.

Come, take up your Last Resort─born of stars' radiance, forged through heroes' might, and imbued with souls' blessing!
Jalzahn, upon receiving the Last Resort

The Zodiac Weapons (ゾディアックウェポン, Zodiakku Wepon?) are legendary weapons in Final Fantasy XIV. Said have been wielded by the Zodiac Braves in ages past, they can be reconstructed as an upgrade beyond the Nexus stage of Relic Weapons. They were added in Patch 2.45. They can further be upgraded to Zodiac Weapon Zeta as of Patch 2.51, but compared to earlier stages, the upgrade process is far less time consuming. Zeta weapons can be used to quicken the first step of obtaining Anima Weapons.

Story Edit

With the Relic Weapon seemingly at maximum capacity at the Nexus phase, Gerolt concludes the only solution is to create a new, stronger vessel in the image of the arms of the Zodiac Braves. Such an extraordinary task requires extraordinary materials: zodium to forge the vessel, a copy of the Book of Skylight to recreate the designs, a zodiac sphere scroll to hold the aetherial essence, and a flawless alexandrite to transfer the old Relic's accumulated soul energy.

Obtaining the Zodiac Edit

The four materials required are obtained through four lengthy, concurrent sidequests. These quests require a number of materials purchased as well as obtaining items for completing high-level dungeons.

Zodiac Weapons Edit

Note that the Zodiac Weapons inherit the secondary attributes from the Relic Weapon, and may still be altered with Sphere Scrolls.

Excalibur and Aegis Shield Edit

Ages past, a wise and just king reigned over all Ilsabard. A blade such as this graced his scabbard in times of peace, and brought terror to his foes in times of strife! And his shield? A twin to the one you hold, unwavering, unyielding, unbreaking.

Etymology Edit

In both astrology and historical astronomy, the zodiac is a circle of twelve 30° divisions of celestial longitude that are centered upon the ecliptic: the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year.

The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus, which comes from the Greek ζῳδιακὸς κύκλος (zōdiakos kyklos), meaning "circle of animals", as half of the signs of the classical Greek zodiac are represented as animals (besides two mythological hybrids).
