Hey just a bit of useless information ^^. That is the Reserve Captain's Greatsword that the Quadav uses. I have one and its great to skill with the +7 acc. The mob doesn't drop anything worthwhile (bar the gold beastcoin :P) but theres supposed to be a HQ version. can anyone verify this?

Solod this as a 68 rdm, a thf friend aggrod all the others out of the room. Dropped a gold beastcoin, was a bit anticlimactic.

Hit me for around 100-150 per hit buffed, Slept like a baby and only resisted sleep once.

Defeated Adaman Quadav with the following setup:

60PLD/30WAR (me)
60DRG/30WAR (afk until last minute)

73PLD tanked (obviously) and the rest DD'd. Pretty slow fight as the only one doing damage was the 73PLD. Pretty easy fight though. It hit me for about 200 each hit, and the other pld for about 40-60. When it was at about 1% of its HP, the 73PLD got d/c'ed, so I started panicking. Used invincible, but we couldn't do any damage. So the DRG finally came back and we beat it. 73PLD came back after the fight was over.

Only drops we got were a water crystal and Dark Knight's Testimony.

We came here originally to do G3, but we thought, what the heck, lets go fight the Ruby Quadav or the Adaman Quadav. The hardest part was separating the two.. they seemed to be bonded.

If it is a Adaman Quadav then why on the list of drops it doesnt show Adaman Ore or Ingot?

The quadav rank themshelves by Mineral and age,
Like a tribal thing

Weakest= amethyst, young, amber

then it goes up till you get to things like Darksteel, Gold, and Ruby, rare stuff like that.

Thats why they have "Yagudo Theologists" and "Orkish Dragoons"

Auto-Collector found an Adaman Sword, but I don't know if you can actually get one. It'd looks cool as **** though.

it's the same model as the reserve captains...no such thing as an "Adaman sword" other quadavs hold zweihanders too, and other such GS's

This is exactly how the final version of the relic 2-hand sword (Ragnarok) looks like. I know because I have a video of all the weapons in action.

I'd say it was the Ragnarok or Excalibur. I'd have to say Ragnarok because it looks like a Great Sword, while the Excalibur is a 1h sword. Of course I don't know for sure, but usually these "ultimate" weapons in FF games are rewards for collecting Adaman, and it would be fitting if the Adaman Quadav wielded one.

BTW, Ragnarok and Excalibur are both weapons added in the new path.

Sorry buddy, its neither, I had a picture of all the final relic weapons but I can't find it, but otherwise I would prove it, but just so you know one is gold and one is silver, I don't know which is which though.

Aparently they also added a new WS called "Knights of the Round" for the 1-handed sword. And supposedly the Excaliber does damage equal to your current HP when you use the WS "Knights of the Round".

Imagine a high lvl Pld hitting something for 1000+ points. O_o
