Battle System

The high-end duty The Weapon's Refrain (Ultimate) has been added.

Just as warriors temper their spirits in battle, so too does the wandering minstrel hone his craft through colorful retellings of heroic deeds. His rendition of your triumph over the Ultima Weapon takes the threads of history and weaves them into an epic tapestry. However, his ballad contains so many embellishments and fabrications that it bears little resemblance to your own tale, and you wonder if he was even listening to you. Nevertheless, you find yourself utterly captivated─whisked away to a battlefield that exists only in your mind's eye...

Level Requirement Disciple of War or Magic level 70
Party Size Eight players
Time Limit 120 minutes

Requirements

After completing Sigmascape V4.0 (Savage), speak with the wandering minstrel in Kugane (X:11.6 Y:12.6) as a level 70 Disciple of War or Magic.

Entering The Weapon's Refrain (Ultimate)

The Weapon's Refrain (Ultimate) can only be accessed via the Raid Finder after forming a party of eight players who have all completed Sigmascape V4.0 (Savage).

Completion Reward

Upon completing The Weapon's Refrain (Ultimate), players can also earn a separate reward once per week. Players who have yet to receive that week's reward can still claim it even if other members of the party have completed the duty prior to the weekly reset.

The reward can be exchanged with Eschina in Rhalgr's Reach (X:13.8 Y:11.8) for Ultima weapons.

* Reward eligibility is reset every Tuesday at 1:00 a.m. (PDT)
