WHM's my main job and I've wanted to get this relic since I've heard of it.

I'm currently on stage 2 with about 900 bynes to go to reach level 3. The fun begins then with all the jadeshells needed (62), and the sacrifice attestation.

Fun stuff.

I'm REALLY wondering what I could dish out with Hexa Strike with it. Because my record without it is 1819. Yes, 1819. Needs more /DRK so I can break 2200+.

SE doesn't 'rip off' ancient names (you meen mythological names, gods, creatures, etc, norse greek and even a bit of hindu lore (garuda)) they just implement them into their games so it has more depth for those who understand what the name's imply. mjollinir (mole lin ner) i believe is the hammer of Thor, so the name is perfectly fitting of an artifact weapon.

i have in fact met someone with excalibur and taking advantage of the moment
i asked the player how the relic ws works,it does indeed need to be EQ on your main hand and the WS itself has special effects for excalibur,but other than that excalibur only has the 3x's damage effect so i'd guess the the hidden effect of the club are hidden in the WS like the sword but i could be wrong

Omg i really want one of these... If anyone on Lakshmi doesn't use O Bronzepieces or Byne Bills and would like to donate i'd be a very happy taru :) Plus since this isn't neccessarily a Priority Weapon, i doubt any WHMs will get it anytime soon, seeing as most dynamis shells would rather have a Melee get a relic weapon first. If anyone wants to donate just /tell Nimrod on Lakshmi :D

XD (Take this how you want to, although i can't pay for currency i doubt i'll get it. So if you're willing to donate, then you're the coolest person i know. if you think of it as just a joke, that's ok too XD)

Really late reply. I don't think Aelish knows what the **** they are talking about.

This weapon doesn't have "Additional Effect: Auto-Refresh". It has "Additional Effect: Recover MP". Meaning, when you hit an enemy with it, you will regain some amount of MP when the effect kicks in.

Second, although I do not have any relic weapons as of yet.. I am also fairly certain that the relic weapon MUST be equipped in your main hand to access the weapon skill.

Simply put: If you got the weapon skill just from completing the "quest", as he calls it, wouldn't you get a line like "You have learned the weapon skill "Black Halo"!" like you do for the WSNM skill?

But alas.. you don't. It just says "Randgrith" as a part of the weapon traits, meaning you must be using said weapon in order to use its abilities.

Granted.. I cannot speak to say everything I said is true.. but it just makes no sense that you would go through the effort to get this relic weapon, and then be able to activate its most powerful trait, the Relic Skill, when wielding something else, such as Morgenstern.

Just a thought.

{/nod} That is correct. I made basically the same statements below but hadn't realized the existence of this post. My bad.

I sometimes wish some people would use common sense. I mean, come on, the weapon skill is listed on the WEAPON which means you need to have the weapon on your "main" slot to use it. That's how all weapons are, why would the relic weapon be different? That's like saying "Additional effect: recover MP" works on all other weapons, and that is obviously false. :/

Just a bit of info on the weaponskill's name origin:

Tartarus is the lowest region of the world, as far below earth as earth is from heaven. According to the Greek poet Hesiod, a bronze anvil falling from heaven would take nine days and nights to reach earth, and an object would take the same amount of time to fall from earth into Tartarus. Tartarus is described as a dank, gloomy pit, surrounded by a wall of bronze, and beyond that a three-fold layer of night. Along with Chaos, Earth, and Eros, it is one of the first entities to exist in the universe.
While Hades is the main realm of the dead in Greek mythology, Tartarus also contains a number of characters. In early stories, it is primarily the prison for defeated gods; the Titans were condemned to Tartarus after losing their battle against the Olympian gods, and the hecatoncheires stood over them as guards at the bronze gates. When Zeus overcomes the monster Typhus, born from Tartarus and Gaia, he hurls it too into the same abyss.

However, in later myths Tartarus becomes a place of punishment for sinners. It resembles **** and is the opposite of Elysium, the afterlife for the blessed. When the hero Aeneas visits the underworld, he looks into Tartarus and sees the torments inflicted on characters such as the Titans, Tityos, Otus and Ephialtes, and the Lapiths. Rhadymanthus (and, in some versions, his brother Minos) judges the dead and assigns punishment.

Someone had to mention it sooner or later:

Isn't it spelled "Mjolnir"?

I know, I know. It can be translated either way. It's just that most of what I've seen outside of FFXI suggests the common spelling for this hammer is with the single L.

Two other links to support this:

The Googlefight.
The Wiki entry.

Actually, the original spelling of the name of this hammer is:

Mjöllnir

Translate it how you want, that fact remains.

A little extra tidbit of information:

Mjöllnir was forged by a dwarf named Sindri Ívaldason. Loki had made a bet with his own brother, Bokkur, and wagered his own head that Sindri could forge three artifacts equal in quality to the three that Bokkur had created before. Bokkur's artifacts were: A golden piece of headwear for Sif, the spear Gungnir, and the ship Skíðblaðni.
Sindri then forged the ring Draupnir, the swine Gullinbursti, and the hammer Mjöllnir.
Mjöllnir was then given to Þór (Thor).

It had the following qualities:
- It could strike anything with the same force, no matter how large
- It never missed
- It always returned to the owner's hand, whether thrown or misplaced
- It could grow or reduce in size at the owner's behest
- It has a short handle

All of this crap is moot. If this thing really has auto-refresh then a whm/smn at 75/37 in full relic (AF2) would have auto-refresh x3 and auto-regen x3 if I am not mistaken. That is some insane recovery. You put that in a pt with a rdm and a brd and see about 9mp/tick recovery with refresh, ballad and ballad II. It is a shame that the effect doesn't stack with yags. /sigh. Daddy wants.

It doesnt have autorefresh, it has a latent effect, which could mean almost anything.

My guess would be that the latent either kicks in based on low mp (unlikely in my opinion) or its an effect when you strike someone, like other latent effects on weapons (what i think it is).

Would make this incredibly good for soloing and ballista.

according to the description there its' "additional effect" not "latent effect" which makes sense, because almost every relic weapon has an "additional effect"

This means that the effect is activated at random when you are hitting an enemy. I would really like to know how often this happens with relic weapons. In general, some additional effects occur every other swing (kraken club goes off constantly), while others are very rare (just about any other weapon comes to mind).

And while it would rock for solo, and beating the **** outta lower level monsters... I personally cannot see any weapon for WHM being worth the amount of time, gil, and effort that this would take.

But that's just me.

note: i'm already planning on NOT working on relic staff even though BLM will be my first to hit 75, and SMN probably the second. it just isn't worth it for non-melee jobs :(

I wonder what this hammer actually looks like. In norse mythology when the dwarves were trying to create mjollnir lokki came in the form of a fly. He reapeatedly bit one of the dwarves until they had to remove it from the fire prematurely and the handle wasnt finished. So if it were to look correct the handle would be shorter than a normal hammer. Just something interesting to think about.....

They hacked the animation files

This is the animation for the WS randgrith, but if you were to watch this person do it from another character it would have looked like one of the lower level WS's.

This is the same thing as changing the model for your moogle. Its still a moogle but looks like Lion!!!!


This WS can also close a Light SC for a 2nd Light SC

Randgrith is a three-fold Light attack. And not light elemental damage, I mean Light (capital "L") as in the Skillchain, containing the four forces of Liquification, Impaction, Detonation, and Transfixion.

I have not tested it, and I doubt I ever will. But I would surely say it's better than Hexa Strike.

Yes i can guarentee that the rod the whm is using is not the Mjollnir, the rod that whm is using is the Star Rod, which is still pretty cool ^^. The Mjollnir looks more like a really curvy version of a maul, yet is so much cooler looking

Which makes me wonder like Shocker...possibly if you have the Mjollnir in your inventory that you can use the WS if you have club high enough? Just a thought...

I've seen that video somewhere before and wondered why the club that WHM is using looks like a star wand instead of a hammer like I'd assume the Mjollnir would be... It was my understanding that you could only use the Rangrith WS if you had the Mjollnir equipped...

Let me settle some things...

YOU GET THE WEAPON SKILL FROM THE QUEST NOT FROM HAVING THE WEAPON ON!!

The weapon says that you can use the skill but you can use it with whatever you want after you finish the quest.

Another important thing to note is that every relic weapon has an additional effect, and a hidden effect as well. This has the additional effect of auto-refresh but what is its hidden effect I still wonder...

Sorry, but... you're wrong. The WS comes from equipping the weapon on your main hand. Nothing else. You can't use the WS if you have another club on your main hand, even if Mjollnir is in your sub hand for some reason.

Also, it doesn't not have an additional effect of Auto-Refresh. It has Additional effect: Recover MP. This means that when you hit the mob, if the effect goes off, you get some MP back. How much MP is unknown; I've only heard of one person on any server having this upgrade, and all I saw was a picture of them with it.

As for a hidden effect, all fully-upgraded relic weapons have a hidden effect of sometimes randomly hitting for 3x normal damage (on a non-critical hit). Whether it has any other effects, who knows...

I don't know where you found out that kind of information. Because it sure as **** doesn't make sense to me.

Why would a weapon skill be listed on the actual WEAPON if you can use it with other weapons? If you were able to use it with another weapon... you'd think the game would tell you like it does with WSNMs, like "You can now use the weapon skill [weapon skill here]!". In other words, ahem... I don't think so.

I believe it's like this:

You gain the weapon itself from the quest, not the weapon skill. The weapon skill is just an extra bonus from the weapon that you can use.

Edit: To answer the original poster, it's probably a changed .DAT (yes, that is possible). You're better off finding someone that has actually OBTAINED the weapon and seeing it firsthand, or looking info up online about it from someone that actually has it.

Thor was the God of Thunder but he was NOT the God of War. The God of War in Norse Myth was Tyr. Tyr was actually a God with one hand. He lost his hand when the Gods captured Loki's son Fenris (or Fenrir) who was a gigantic wolf. When the Gods captured Fenris they tried to bind it with chains and rope because such a monster was too dangerous to leave in the wilderness. But Fenris' strength was so great that no chain could bind it. So when they asked Fenris to be bound by a simple ribbon Fenris suspected magic and trickery. Tyr offered to place his right hand in the mouth of Fenris as a symbol of faith. When the magic ribbon bound Fenris it bit of Tyr's hand in a spite of rage, and thus Tyr lost one of his hands. Tyr's name and inscriptions have been found on many weapons uncovered from that age. Although not as popular or worshipped as Thor, Tyr could probably called a distant second or third best in terms of popularity. :)

Thor's hammer, Mjollnir was created for him by two dwarves Brok and Eitri (these guys made a couple of things for the Gods). Mjollnir means "to smash" (I'm also told it means "lightning" in some slavic languages). Whenever Thor threw this hammer it was said lightning would flash across the sky. With this hammer and his belt, Thor slew many giants and was feared in their kingdom. After his death during Ragnarok the hammer will be entrusted to the care of his two sons. :) Thor is revered by both the Gods and man for being a protector of justice and mortals. He was also worshipped by many because he did not require sacrifice (as opposed to some of the other gods such as Aegir).

Just thought you might be interested in some background re Thor and his hammer.

There is NO way Thor was the God of War. I think Freja or someone like that was. ****, Odin is more of a God of War than Thor. Thor was a God of the people. He was a big (chubby) dude with a long beard that the people could "relate too" and was thus most often the favorite among the people.

As for being the God of Thunder...there's no proof of that. In the 3 books I've read about Norse (Germanic) Mythology, not once do they mention him having anything to do with thunder.

Not important really but was seeing the Thor descriptions. Thor was a god of fertility (both human and crop), husbandry, thunder, and yes war.

All the Aesir war war gods after a fashion. This is easy to understand when one thinks about the lifestyle of Viking and northern germanic peoples of the period. Thor was the "common man's" deity. He gave good crops, healthy animals, plenty of rain (likely where the thunder aspect comes into play), fat babies and courage during war and raids. It should also be noted that thunder was caused when Thor rode his chariot (pulled by he goats) across the sky.

Thor was married to Sif who was a goddess of Excellence in all things. She was the best cook, weaver, wife, and strangely sword play. Sif was a goddess that a woman could look too to during war for courage and the defense of the home. So in that way she also was a "war" goddess.

When joined together they formed a "perfect" couple. The best in what a Viking person could look for in a mate.

Odhin was the god of sky, wisdom, chieftans and war. Ohdin fulfills what one usually associates with the aspect of a war god as he is more dedicated to it's persuit. However, Ohdin's attentions were extreme and fickle so the average person would have been foolish to approach Odhin. Chieftan's and Skalds were the only people who openly worshiped Ohdin. They were the only ones with the power and wisdom, respectively, to understand his temperment.

So in the end Thor was essentially "all things" to the average man. In a way he represented everything that would concern a free man on a day to day basis.

Getting the 30million in currency is a breeze compared to getting the Attestation of Sacrifice.

Yeah it's nice to see SE add Thors hammer as a weapon to this game. I too have always been a mythology nut since i was very young(7-8 years old).
