Relic Weapons

Relic Weapons have been balanced on Supernova so as not to make any single one overpowered above others.

Advanced jobs obtained in the Treasures of Aht Urhgan and Wings of the Goddess expansions are able to use the relic weapon (and relic weapon skill) most closely aligned with that job. In order to equip those items, you must do so using an equipset macro.

Relic Weapon +1 Upgrade

A custom mini-quest on Supernova allows you to upgrade a single Relic Weapon in your possession with an augmentation. Details are found on the NPC named Rhaegar in the Chocobo Circuit Crafting area, in the area with Bonecrafting and Woodworking.

Details for Upgrading a relic:

  • Must have desired Relic Weapon in your possession.
  • Can only upgrade *one* relic weapon with *one* augment.
  • Trade the following to NPC Rhaegar:
    • One (1) Ten Thousand Byne Bill
    • One (1) Montiont Goldpiece
    • One (1) Romilala Stripeshell
    • Relic of choice
    • Job testimony corresponding to desired augmentation.

Your augmentation is determined by the job testimony (the item you trade to fight Maat in pre-TOAU jobs) you deliver to Rhaegar with your relic and dynamis 10,000 notes. The possible augments are listed below.

Supernova Custom Content

  • Monster of The Moment (MoTM): Specific monster families will yield higher amounts of experience points than normal. They rotate approx~ every 2 months.
  • Soul Plates: Since the system for Soul Plates and Cameras don't work we have a custom system that is similar to the MoTM where specific mobs will have a custom loot pool to where Soul Plates are added to drops. They rotate less frequently as MoTM.
  • Supernova Superquest!: Treasure Hunt based quest.
  • Zantetsuken Quest: Newly added quest line that pits you against your wits to solve puzzles in a Hot & Cold style event. Completing this string of quests will unlock a specialty shop that has access to Einherjar gear.
