I found this very helpful when I was doing mine.

A Relic Reborn Walkthrough

Step 1: Complete Main Scenario Quest, All Class and Job quests for that respective weapon.

Step 2: Talk to ‘Nedrick Ironheart‘ in Vesper Bay who will give you the quest ‘A Relic Reborn‘

Step 3: Talk to ‘Rowena’ in Revenant’s Toll

Step 4: Talk to ‘Gerolt‘ in Hyrstmill (Northwest of Fallgourd Float – take a Chocobo Porter)

Step 5: Gerolt will ask you to find your respective ‘Broken Weapon‘ go to:

Natalan: BARD, DRAGOON
Sapsa Spawning Grounds: SCHOLAR
Sylphlands: SUMMONER
U’Ghamaro Mines: BLACKMAGE, WARRIOR, WHITEMAGE
Zaha’rak: MONK, PALADIN
Step 6: Present Gerolt with your Job specific weapon double melded with Grade III Materia. (either buy these weapons from the Marketplace or look below to find out how to get these weapons)

BARD: Longarm’s Composite Bow + 2 Heaven’s Eye Materia III
BLACKMAGE: Sanguine Scepter + 2 Savage Might Materia III
DRAGOON: Champion’s Lance + 2 Savage Aim Materia III
MONK: Wilding Cesti + 2 Savage Aim Materia III
PALADIN: Aeolian Scimitar + 2 Battledance Materia III
SCHOLAR: Erudite’s Picatrix Of Healing + 2 Quicktongue Materia III
SUMMONER: Erudite’s Picatrix Of Casting + 2 Savage Might Materia III
WARRIOR: Barbarian’s Bardiche + 2 Battledance Materia III
WHITEMAGE: Madman’s Whispering Rod + 2 Quicktongue Materia III
NOTE: This step is where a lot of people are getting stuck, for one, Grade III materia for this quest costs an arm and a leg… and secondly not many people know how to meld materia. If you are patient, you can spirit bond level 48 and above armor and weapons and convert them into materia, if you are lucky you will get the type of materia you need for the quest, otherwise sell the materia to earn enough to buy form the marketplace. To meld materia into armore you need to find a Disciple of Hand who is level 50 to meld into your gear

Step 7: Obtain ‘Alumina Salts‘ from fighting the D’horme Chimera in Coerthas (Northeast of Camp Dragonhead). You must defeat the Chimera as the Job you will get the relic weapon with. Once defeated bring the salts back to Gerolt.

Step 8: Obtain ‘Amdapor Glyph‘ from completing Amdapor Keep. You must complete Amdapor as the Job you will get the relic weapon with. Bring this to Rowena

Step 9: After going back to Gerolt, he will ask you to slay 24 beastmen with the ‘Unfinished Relic Weapon‘ he just gave you

BARD: 8x Natalan Boldwings, 8x Fogcallers, 8x Windtalons
BLACKMAGE: 8x U’Ghamaro Quarrymen, 8x Bedesmen, 8x Priests
DRAGOON: 8x Natalan Boldwings, 8x Fogcallers, 8x Swiftbeaks
MONK: 8x Zahar’ak Lancers, 8x Pugilists, 8x Archers
PALADIN: 8x Zahar’ak Lancers, 8x Pugilists, 8x Thaumaturges
SCHOLAR: 8x Sapsa Shelfspine, 8x Shelfclaw, 8x Shelftooth
SUMMONER: 8x Sylpheed Sighs, 8x Screeches, 8x Snarls
WARRIOR: 8x U’Ghamaro Quarrymen, 8x Roundmen, 8x Bedesmen/Priests
WHITEMAGE: 8x U’Ghamaro Quarrymen, 8x Bedesmen, 8x Preists
NOTE: Watch out for the quest markers on top of the enemies you need to defeat, some quests we know are bugged, where they say you have to kill a certain mob, but the quest icon on top of the monster does not show up. Kill the monsters with the quest icon on top of their heads instead.

Step 10: Slay the Hydra in Halatali. You must defeat the Hydra as the Job you are getting the relic weapon with.

Step 11: Defeat Ifrit (Hard) and obtain ‘White-Hot Ember‘. You must defeat Ifrit as the Job you are getting the relic weapon with.

Step 12: Defeat Garuda (Hard) and obtain ‘Howling Gale‘. You must defeat Garuda as the Job you are getting the relic weapon with.

Step 13: Defeat Titan (Hard) and obtain ‘Hyperfused Ore‘. You must defeat Titan as the Job you are getting the relic weapon with.

Step 14: Purchase ‘Bottle of Radz-at-Han Quenching oil‘ for 900 Allagan Tomestones of Philosophy from Rowena

How do I get the pre-requisite relic weapon to meld in Step 6?

Great guide :thmup: .

There are a couple of small steps that are not listed anywhere, including in the duty journal itself. In between the primal fights, you have to travel back to...is it Waking Sands? And speak to someone, then on to Adders Nest...before moving on to next primal.

Those little steps are very very frustrating because they are not laid out anywhere, Gerolt doesn't mention it and when you go to the next fight, all it says is that you don't meet requirements. :TBwall:

Thank you. I wish that part was made clearer in the quest line or journal. I think they expect us to be mind readers or good guessers at this point. :lol: When in doubt, always go back to Minfilia!

Added note for step 10 (hydra): Not only must you be the class in which you're doing the relic quest, you must also have the unfinished relic weapon equipped.

2 minor typos: spruce logs are 9am, and trillium are 9pm. 10 works as the nodes are around from 9-12, just saying they pop up earlier.
