Weapon Walkthrough

  • You can have multiple copies of the same weapon inscribed at once.
    • You cannot have the same trial inscribed on multiple weapons simultaneously (you must complete or abandon the trial on one weapon before you may inscribe another with the same trial inscription).
  • You can have up to five different trials active at once.
    • The five trials includes any active Armor trials as well as Weapons.
    • Please note that discarding an inscribed weapon does not remove the trial from your active list; you must speak with the Magian Moogle to abandon the trial.
    • Abandoning a trial will not affect your weapon; it will possess the same attributes it had prior to undertaking the trial. Likewise such a weapon can again be inscribed with the same trial or a new one. Note, however, that any progress on an abandoned trial is permanently lost and must be repeated if the weapon is re-inscribed with that trial.
  • You can only have one trial inscribed on each weapon.
  • Each weapon's trials are unique; you must repeat the same trials if creating multiple copies of the same weapon, even if you have already completed the trials on another weapon.
  • Trade the weapon to the Magian Moogle and select the desired trial to undertake.
  • Complete the trial and trade the weapon to the Magian Moogle to receive the augment(s) or the upgraded weapon.

Obtaining Necessary Kills

  • The trials generally consist of, but are not limited to, the following types:
  • Defeating a given number of a specific type of experience-yielding monster..
  • You MUST be within Experience point gaining range and not KO'ed to receive credit.
  • Defeating a given number of a specific type of experience-yielding monster during either Light-affiliated (wind, thunder, fire, light) OR Darkness-affiliated (water, ice, earth, dark) weather effects.
  • Defeating a given number of a specific type of experience-yielding monster during one particular type of weather effect OR its corresponding day. (e.g. kills either during wind weather or on Windsday). As of the September 2010 update, successful kills with weather present (single or double) will count as 5, while the appropriate day counts as one. For example, killing one monster on ice day during ice weather will give a total of 6 points.
  • Killing enemies while the appropriate weather is active gives credit for 5 kills.
  • Killing enemies during the appropriate day gives credit for 1 kill.
  • If weather and day are present, you get credit for 6 kills per enemy.
  • Scholar's -storm spells (Rainstorm, Thunderstorm, etc...) will not give credit toward weather-specific trials; the weather must be naturally occurring.
  • Having a pet deal a given number of killing blows on a specific type of experience-yielding monster.
  • An Adventuring Fellow's killing blow will count towards this trial.
  • Skillchains closed by pets will not count toward this trial.
  • Killing blows by other players' pets count towards this trial as of the September 2010 update.
  • Kills from a pet's counterattack, DoT or skill chain (not Weapon Skill) do NOT count.
  • Enemies killed by automaton nukes will grant experience AND kill credit
  • Having the weapon's Additional Effect trigger a given number of times on a specific type of experience-yielding monster.
  • Using a specific Weapon Skill a given number of times on a specific type of experience-yielding monster. Weapon Skill that have a Area of effect won't count as multiple kill when used on two or more monster.
  • Dealing a given number of killing blows with a specific Weapon Skill on a specific type of experience-yielding monster. As of the September 2010 update, kills from other players using the appropriate Weapon Skill will count towards the Magian player's trial.
  • Using an elementally specific status ailment on a specific type of experience-yielding monster. The ailment must be present upon death, but does not have to be inflicted by the person on the trial.
  • Using an elementally specific Magic Damage on a specific type of experience-yielding monster. The Damage amount will vary with each trial. It does not have to be inflicted by the person on the trial. Elemental WS's will count towards this credit.

  • Your weapon must possess the appropriate trial inscription to receive credit toward a trial.
  • Unlike Latent Effect weapons that are "broken" with Weapon Skill Points, trial weapons record and actively report their progress to the player by displaying a confirmation message in the chat log each time the trial's specified objective is fulfilled (e.g. "Trial 100: 99 objectives remain."). Additionally, the Magian Moogle will show your currently active trials and their progress at your request. Upon completion of a trial, another confirmation message will be displayed, instructing you to visit the Magian Moogle.
  • Dual Wielded weapons (weapons in offhand) receive credit.
    • You may Dual Wield two trial weapons and receive credit for each as long as each weapon's specific trial criteria are met.
  • Trials can be completed in a party or alliance without penalty. It is not required to take action on the monster unless specified in the trial criterion (e.g. "killing blows"). The enemy must be claimed to your party or alliance, you must be within experience points range (even for Notorious Monsters that do not give experience points), and your weapon must be equipped at the time that the monster is defeated.
  • Note that credit will not be received if the enemy is defeated while unclaimed (Damage Over Time or Self-Destruct-type moves while the target's name is yellow).
  • You will still receive credit for kills while K.O.ed, assuming the target was still claimed to your party or alliance at the time that it was defeated.
  • Trials can be completed while under the effect of Level Sync as long as the target is experience-yielding and fulfills the trial criteria.
  • Trials can be completed by Maze Lurker enemies in Moblin Maze Mongers mazes as long as the target is experience-yielding and fulfills the trial criteria.
  • Using Maze Voucher 01, an appropriate race rune, Maze Rune 102 and bringing a low-level character (Level 56-58) creates approximately 25 instanced Easy Prey targets per maze for a level 75 player. Furthermore, these mazes can be copied by Duplidoc for 20 Moblin Marbles and distributed for 500 gil each.

Pattern to the Menu System

  • Each weapon type trial series culminates into 3 different weapons:
    • Type 1A : A HQ or NQ Empyrean Weapon.
    • Type 1B : A multi-attack weapon.
    • Type 2* : The elemental branch. Each element gives augments related to that element.
      • Type 2*A : Moderate DMG+ and delay- bonuses, as well as a bonus to one primary and one secondary stat (e.g. Fire = STR+4 Attack+15)
      • Type 2*B : Same as 2*A, but grants pet: secondary stat bonus. (e.g. STR+4 Pet:Attack +15 Ranged Attack+15). Only available for pet jobs.
      • Type 2*C : These branch off into what appears to be 4 different elemental staves. Staff only.
        • Type 2*C1 : Magic Affinity : Magic Accuracy+1 Magic Attack+X
        • Type 2*C2 : Magic Affinity : Magic Accuracy+X Magic Attack+1
        • Type 2*C3 : Perpetuation -X
        • Where X is an integer from 3 to 5, depending on trial progress.
        • Type 2*C4 : Cure Potency light element only
      • Type 2*D : Slightly higher DMG+ than the attribute bonus branch, as well as an Additional Effect (e.g. Additional Effect: Defense Down). Not available for ranged weapons. When these weapons reach the stage where they are given the option of an added effect of a Status down you cannot trigger the effect until it has worn off of your target.
    • Type 3 : The Weapon Skill branch. Unlike Type 1 and 2, you receive credit towards completing the weapon each Weapon Skill you perform.
      • Type 3A: Moderate Damage, Low Delay, and a Percentage Boost to Weapon Skill damage while wielding the weapon.
      • Type 3B: Moderate Damage, Low Delay, and a significant boost to Store TP while wielding the weapon.
