How to make Anima Weapon (AW), procedure and necessary materials summary

I found a wonderful treasure today.
I found a wonderful treasure today.



This is a record of the production and evolution procedure of Anima Weapon (AW).


Anima Weapons require a large amount of Allagan tomestone Poetics, so it’s always a good idea to replace excess Poetics with the necessary materials!

If you have all the materials, I think you can reach the final form in one day.



The prerequisite quest is from Rowena in Idyllshire after clearing Heavensward: An Unexpected Proposal

Now let’s move on to the steps to create an anima weapon!

Stage 1: Soul without Life (Animated)

You will get the following items by going around the F.A.T.E.

Location of F.A.T.E.Item
Azys LlaLuminous Fire Crystal
Sea Of CloudsLuminous Wind Crystal
Churning MistsLuminous Lightning Crystal
Coerthas Western HighlandsLuminous Ice Crystal
The Dravanian ForelandsLuminous Earth Crystal
Dravanian HinterlandsLuminous Water Crystal

You can get it with a reasonable probability, so it may not be that difficult!

Stage 2: Toughening Up (Awoken)

All you have to do is equip the “Animated xxx” made in the first step and clear the following dungeons.

2Sastasha (Hard)
3The Sunken Temple of Qarn (Hard)
4The Keeper of the Lake
5The Wanderer’s Palace (Hard)
6Amdapor Keep (Hard)
7The Dusk Vigil
8Sohm Al
9The Aery
10The Vault

Unsynced is OK, so it’s crispy!

Stage 3: Coming into Its Own

You will need the following items: A large amount of Allagan tomestone poetics is required (6,000 pieces), so it’s quicker to exchange them on a regular basis.

ItemquantityHow to get
Unidentifiable Bone10Poetics 150 × 10 = 1,500
Unidentifiable Shell10Poetics 150 × 10 = 1,500
Unidentifiable Ore10Poetics 150 × 10 = 1,500
Unidentifiable Seeds10Poetics 150 × 10 = 1,500
Adamantite Francesca4Company Seals 5,000 × 4 *Available on the market board

Dispelling Arrow4Company Seals 5,000 × 4 *Available on the market board
Kingcake4Company Seals 5,000 × 4 *Available on the market board

At this stage, AW will take on a new form.

Stage 4: Finding Your Voice (Hyperconductive)

You will also need items to exchange with Poetics (1,750).

ItemquantityHow to get
Aether Oil5Poetics 350 × 5 = 1,750

AW will shine here again!

Stage 5: A Dream Fulfilled

Ms. Uran in Idyllshire tells me that I need the following items.

ItemquantityHow to get
Umbriteabout 60Poetics 75 × 60 = 4,500
Crystal Sandabout 60There are various methods (see below for recommendations)

About how to collect crystal sand

There are various ways to obtain “Crystal Sand“, but the following three are recommended.

Recommended way to collect crystal sand①

If you are a crafter or gatherer and have extra scrip, we recommend the following items. You can exchange it at the same crafter area in Idyllshire.

Item namequantityNumber of required Scrip
Rowena’s Token (Blue Crafters’ Scrip)About 150White Crafters’ Scrip
@25× 5 × 30= 3,750
Gatherer’s scrip is also possible!


Recommended way to collect crystal sand②

Alternatively, we recommend these, which can be exchanged with Allagan Tomestone Poetics, as the exchange rate is low!

Item namequantityRequired number of Poetics
Superior Enchanted InkAbout 150Poetics @25×5×30 = 3,750
Thavnairian MistAbout 150Poetics @20×5×30 = 3,000


Recommended way to collect crystal sand③

Alternatively, you can also exchange the following items that you collected in the third stage, so if you have a lot left over, you can use the following items as well!

Unidentifiable BoneAbout 30Poetics @150×30 = 4,500
Unidentifiable ShellAbout 30Poetics @150×30 = 4,500
Unidentifiable OreAbout 30Poetics @150×30 = 4,500
Unidentifiable SeedsAbout 30Poetics @150×30 = 4,500


There are also other options such as “Demimateria”, and you can also solve the problem with gil!

After that, Ms. Uran will increase the enhancement value of the weapon. It doesn’t matter which one, so it’s OK to raise it appropriately!


I almost got lost in how to get crystal sand💦

Stage 6: Future Proof (Sharpened)

You will need the following items:

ItemquantityHow to get
Singing Cluster50Poetics 40 × 50 = 2,000

There are other ways to get it from quests, but if you exchange it with Poetics on a regular basis, you’ll be in no time!


Here again AW shines beautifully!

Stage 7: Born Again Anima

First, go to the dungeon below. Unsynced is OK!

1The Lost City of Amdapor (Hard)
2The Great Gubal Library (Hard)
3Sohm Al (Hard)

Next, collect sparkles.

You can collect radiance by clearing Heavensward dungeons, but the most efficient way is to go around “Alexander – The Eyes of the Creator (Savage)“.

After 21 laps of “Alexander – The Eyes of the Creator (Savage)“, it will become a perfect form, so it’s recommended! Unsynced is faster! I feel like there are quite a few PT recruits. (Even if you were alone, you should be able to defeat it in about 5 minutes.)

Finally you will need the following items:

ItemquantityHow to get
Pneumite15Poetics 100 × 15 = 1,500
Company Seals 4,000 × 15

Here again, the shape changes and it becomes an AW with a great way to shine!

Final Stage: Best Friends Forever (Lux)

Below, you will go to battle. Unsynced is OK! (One person should be able to defeat them all)

1The Bowl of Embers (Hard)
2The Howling Eye (Hard)
3The Navel (Hard)
4Thornmarch (Hard)
5The Whorleater (Hard)
6The Striking Tree (Hard)
7The Akh Afah Amphitheatre (Hard)
8Thok ast Thok (Hard)
9The Limitless Blue (Hard)
10Containment Bay S1T7
11Containment Bay P1T6
12Containment Bay Z1T9

Finally you need the following items

ItemquantityHow to get
Archaic Enchanted Ink1Poetics 500

This completes! It’s only difficult to get the materials you need to exchange Poetics, so it’s a good idea to always use leftover Poetics to exchange!

So, that was the summary of how to make an anima weapon!
