FFXIV Heavensward: How To Get The Best Equipment?
Sep 05, 2020 Source: IGGM
The extended free trial and the supplementary first expansion make FFXIV even more popular. Patch 5.3 provides new storyline quests, including a closer look at the Dwarven Beast Tribe. This update also brings flying mounts to Eorzea, which leads to changes in the content of the previous jumping puzzles. Players will be surprised to find that they have a new job when they reach level 60. Regardless of their experience, a fully geared character can make it easier for them to start the Stormblood dungeon.
Acquired Items In FFXIV
Some level 60 items will be distributed as rewards and prizes. After Stormblood was released, some options were updated to include Samurai and Red Mage weapons, but this does not apply to Gunbreakers or Dancers.
Players that go through the main scenario quests introduced in patch 3.2 The Gears of Change will have the opportunity to select item level 240 Augmented Primal equipment as rewards. These are divided into six coffer sets: The first contains weapons for tanks or Samurai; the second between Monk, Dragoon, Ninja, or Paladin's shield; the fourth among Bard, Machinist, Black Mage, or Summoner; the fourth is weapons for healers or Red Mage. For the first armor set options are for tanks, Dragoons, Ninjas, or Monk/Samurai. The final armor selection is among casters, rangers, and healers.
There are two dungeons that both drop item level 245 Filibuster's armor. Sohm Al (Hard) can be unlocked from the quest The Fires of Somh Al by Gossamer Moogle in Idyllshire x:4, Y:8.5. Baelsar's Wall requires completing the main story quest Griffin, Griffin on the Wall from patch 3.5 and leads to Stormblood. Each dungeon has 7 chests scattered around the area or dropped by bosses.
Like A Realm Reborn, the expansion features its own type of Relic ranging from item level 170 Animated to 275 Lux weapons. This will start with the quest An Unexpected Proposal from Rowena in Idyllshire. The upgrade includes a long list of goals that can include FATEs, destroying a Zodiac Zeta, completing quests of the Beast Tribe, Alexander raids, repeating the Crystal Tower, running the daily roulettes, and revisiting dungeons and trial crossing A Realm Reborn And Heavensward.
Players can meet with Unukalhai via the quest Gods of Eld from Torsefers in the Pillars. After completing patch 3.1, there will be a follow-up quest When the Bough Wakes from Unukalhai. This will pit one against the Warring Triad from Final Fantasy VI. The standard trials don't give any special rewards but will grant access to Extreme variants with weapon drops. Sephirot has item level 220 Sephirot weapons, Sophia with item level 255 Sophic weapons, and Zurvan with item level 265 Zurvanite weapons. Totems will also drop, which can be traded to Bertana in Idyllshire for specific rewards.
Alexander is an 8-man raids series, unlocked from the quest Disarmed from Slowfix in Ldyllshire. Players can first enter the normal difficulty of Gordias, Midas and The Creator. These dropped tarnished parts can be traded to Sabina in Idyllshire for Prototype gear of item level 190, 220, 250. Each layer has a Savage difficulty, the hardest content is in Heavensward. Rewards include versions of Gordian, Midan and Alexandrian armor at items level 210, 240 and 270.
Mhachi and Proto Ultima
Heavensward's 24-man raid is about the voidsent Mhachi society featured in the Black Mage and White Mage questlines. The first part can be unlocked from the quest Sky Pirates given by Unquiet Trader in The Pillars Airship Landing. These quests will unlock Void Ark with item level 200 Void Ark armor, The Weeping City of Mhach plus item level 230 Yafaemi, finally Dun Scaith and item level 260 Diabolic gear.
After completing Dun Scaith the first time, players can undergo the repeatable quest Unidentified Flying Object from Slipslix in Idyllshire. By defeating Proto Ultima mini-boss in Dun Scaith, players can earn item level 270 Proto Ultima accessories. Patch 5.3 removed the previous weekly restriction on this quest.
