Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.55 has the last stage of Blades of Gunnhildr relic weapons Quest, and similar to the previous relic weapon chains, these final quests are pretty easy to turn off (at least compared to previous stages). You’ll need to unlock the new Zadnor region to get started, but that won’t take long when you’re all busy with your Blades of Gunnhildr and Save the Queen quests.
If you’re still lagging behind with your relic weapons in Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, be sure to check out our guides for the previous Blades of Gunnhildr levels (Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3).
Unlock Zadnor, then speak to Garolt to get all three of the top relic weapon quests for Blades of Gunnhildr in patch 5.55.
To unlock the new relic weapon quest line “Blades of Gunnhildr” in patch 5.55, you must first gain access to the new zone of Zadnor. If you’ve kept up with the Save the Queen storyline and main scenario, all you have to do is speak to Marsak in Gangos (X: 6.4 Y: 5.7) to start A New Field. Fun Fact: You only need to be up to date in the main scenario by Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.4 – “Futures Rewritten” – although you will have to dig deep into the Save the Queen arc.
Once you’ve unlocked Zandor, return to Gangos and speak to Gerolt (X: 6.2 Y: 5.0) to grab “What Dreams Are Made Of” (assuming you are fully in the previous phase and have your relic weapon (n) at hand). . Complete “What Dreams Are Made Of” to unlock the three quests for real relic weapons: “Spare Parts”, “Tell Me a Story” and “A Good Memory”.
As in previous Blades of Gunnhildr relic weapon tiers, you’ll have to farm memories in patch 5.55, but this time it’s a little less of a hassle. I mean, you still need 60 reminders for each quest, but there are a few specifics that make life easier. For starters, you can grab all three Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.55 Blades of Gunnhildr Relic Weapon quests at once so you can grind all three at the same time – rad!
In addition, the reminder drop rate is 100% regardless of the activity you choose. Remember that every quest has it two Farming different memories, but the 100% drop rate and the ability to complete all three quests at the same time make it pretty darn easy to clear this final relic weapon tier. Besides, all you have to do is complete these quests your first relic weapon. There is an easier search for relic weapons in Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.55.
For your first relic weapon in this final stage, you’ll need to farm memories from:
- “Spare Parts”
- Memory 1: Zadnor Skirmish or Levels 1 and 2 of the Alexander Raid.
- Reminder 2: Zadnor Critical Engagements or Floors 2 & 4 of the Alexander Raid.
- “Tell me a story:
- Memory 1: Zadnor Skirmishes or Levels 1 and 2 of the Omega Raid.
- Storage 2: Zadnor Critical Engagements or Floors 2 & 4 of the Omega Raid.
- “A beautiful memory”
- Memory 1: Zadnor Skirmish or Levels 1 and 2 of the Eden Raid.
- Reminder 2: Zadnor Critical Engagements or Floors 2 & 4 of the Eden Raid.
Again, these reminders have a 100% drop rate across the board. So if you want to be super efficient, then you should grab a team of like-minded Warriors of Light for a Zadnor farm. Once you’ve acquired the memories required for all three quests, return to Gerlot and complete “A Done Deal” to get your relic weapon “Blades of Gunnhildr” to the final stage.
You can then upgrade additional relic weapons by speaking to Zlatan and taking the “Irresistible” quest. You need 15 reminders for these, and you can acquire them by completing Delubrum Reginae, the new Zadnor dungeon, Heaven-on-High (floors 51-100), or level 70 dungeons (IE rollout for your Blue Mages) this phase).
The quest “Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.55 Blades of Gunnhildr” is the last stageSo you don’t have to worry about there being another grind after this one until the Endwalker relic weapons come out sometime in the next year or so. With a few months to burn, it’s easy to take out a relic weapon or two while we wait for the next expansion. Hopefully patch 5.58 will ease the grind a bit in the third phase, even if the relic weapons of Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers are arguably the easiest to earn.
Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is now available for PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
