Walkthrough

Switchstix in Castle Zvahl Baileys can upgrade degraded weapons if you bring him the things he wants.

The first upgrade will require:

Fee: Montiont Silverpiece x4

The Relic Sword is a drop from Dynamis - Windurst. The Koh-I-Noor is crafted (Goldsmithing 20) from a HQ3 of a Sparkling Stone which is dropped in Dynamis - San d'Oria, Dynamis - Windurst, Dynamis - Jeuno, and Dynamis - Bastok. The Orichalcum Chain is crafted (Goldsmithing 93). Trade all four items and payment in Silverpieces to Switchstix and he will upgrade it to a Glyptic Sword. You will need to wait one game day.

The second upgrade will require:

Fee: One Hundred Byne Bill x14

You must wait one Earth week before you can get the second upgrade. Turn all of these items in along with the fee and he will upgrade the Glyptic Sword to the Dynamis Sword.

The third upgrade will require:

Fee: Lungo-Nango Jadeshell x60

The Attestation of Glory drops in Dynamis - Beaucedine. Trade these two items to Switchstix and he will upgrade the Dynamis Sword to the Caliburn. The Caliburn will allow you to use the special weapon skill Knights of Round, but only in Dynamis areas.

The fourth upgrade will require:

Fee: Ranperre Goldpiece x1

The Holy Fragment drops off the Animated Longsword in Dynamis - Xarcabard

Trade the Holy Fragment, Shard of Necropsyche, Caliburn and currency to the pond in Dragon's Aery to receive a cutscene, the Excalibur, and 30 Montiont Silverpieces.

Ok I'm on the Ragnarok Server and I've got the Caliburn right now, this is how it works.

The stages 1 and 2 info on this thread are all correct but let me clear up the confusion in terms of the rest.

Stage 3 (Dynamis Sword) > Stage 4 (Caliburn) Requires 61 Lungo-Nango Jadeshells, The attestation of glory, and the Dynamis Sword. The Attestation is dropped off the Hydra NM Goublefaupe in Dynamis-BCD. Thats the ONLY place it drops from. To pop him, you need to head up into the Hydra section of BCD and kill a Vanguard Eye at the Nue tower, this will make the 5 Hydra NMs pop in the 5 other towers of BCD. Goublefaupe is on the Quadav level, in the tower at J-8 (I think, maybe I-8. its the only tower on the quaddie floor). He is a WAR/PLD/RDM mob, he can spam the 2hrs of all 3 jobs repeatedly. He can drop either the Attestation of Force (Great Axe), Attestation of Glory (Sword), or Attestation of Righteousness (Great sword), these are on the same drop cycle so he can only drop one of those, so they have about a 30% rate. He ALWAYS drops one, so you're guaranteed something (Thats why I said 30% rate on each, because its just a 1/3 chance of getting the one you want). In addition, he can drop the Attestation of Invulnerability (Shield) but it is NOT on the same drop cycle as the others so he CAN drop it as well as another (happened to my ls when I got glory for Caliburn, the shield dropped as well). I've heard rumors that the Hydra NMs CAN drop a 100 piece instead of an attestation, I've never seen it directly though so it's probably fairly rare. Once you have the 61 Jades, and the Attestation, you go to Switchstix in Zvhal Baileys, trade it in, and 3 days, 6 hours later (Earth Time) your Caliburn will be ready.

Stage 4 (Caliburn) > Stage 5 (Excalibur) Requires a Shard of Necropsyche, Holy Fragment, Ranperre Goldpiece, and Caliburn. You get the Shard of Necropsyche from the Vanguard Dragons right before Dynamis Lord. It is a very common drop and should pose no problem to a person upgrading. The Holy Fragment DOES NOT drop off of Dynamis Lord (DL only drops a 100 piece and the shadow mantle or ring, I can't prove that he doesn't drop a 10,000 piece as it could be a very very very slim chance, at least I'm hoping that ;p but I can guarantee he doesn't drop the fragment). The fragment is dropped off of Animated Longsword in Dynamis-Xarca, I'm unclear to his exact POS but he's at the NE part of the map I'm told and only pops after you kill the 15 Demon NMs. You have to blitz him because if you dont interest him enough, he'll literally warp away and be gone for the rest of that run. From what I can gather, all the Animated weapons can get bored like this and you only have about a minute before they do. It is a 100% drop from the Animated Longsword. The Ranperre Goldpiece is obtained by trading 100 Montiont Silverpieces to the Goblin currency NPC in Davoi. Once you have all these things, you'll get a text CS from Switchstix in zvahl telling you to go to the targetable spot at the pond in Dragon's Aery, where you will get a CS involving the ghost of the previous owner of the Excalibur, a member of the fallen Hydra Corps.

And that's it. hope that clears things up!

5310/6100 for Caliburn
600/10,000 for excalaber

I got second upgrade done when coins were 5K in bazzars, now thay 15-20K 20-50K JP buy them.

Luckaly still buy them for 5K per single from dynamis shell, but more and more people trying to upgrade making it imposible for anyone to upgrade.

In response to the rumor of Attestations being a rare drop off Hydra mobs I'm fairly sure its exactly what it is rumor as well as the rumor of the Holy Fragment dropping off Kindred Paladin Demons in Dyn-Xarca. My linkshell and other linkshells have slugged at Dynamis Beau and Xarca for the longest time and we have never seen this drop from those enemies. Its safe to say that the only or at least the only reliable source of the Attestation/Fragment drops is to get it from the NMs that they were intended to be recieved from.

Holy Fragment (final upgrade requirement)
Animated Sword in Dynamis-Xarcabard

Attestation of Glory
Hydra NM in Dynamis-Beaucidine

After you get grt the shard of Necrospyche, the Holy Fragment and Caliburn in your inventory you will get a text cutscene from Switchstix in Castle Vahzil Baileys, the 4th upgrade cost is 10,000 bronze which is obtained by trading 100 silver to the goblin in Davoi and has never been a confirmed drop from Dynamis Lord.

I don't know if the rumor for the Dyna-lord dropping it is true. But then again, how often is he killed by an LS is still up for grabs. Would be nice though, but from what I'm hearing, it's still just a rumor at this point. And the 10,000 currency for the sword, has it been confirmed that it is the R. Goldpiece or 10,000 byne bill???

Just with the costs alone.
The total is 162800 acient money x 15 000 the average price on my server and thats hmm 2,442,000,000 all together in cost if you went by buying alone.
As the pictures showed there are 100k in addition to the 1 types and 100 types.
Then you add another +3 mil about for the other materials.
Sigh, either way im 1000/162800 total and still havent gone to dynamis. I hope people dont stop paying for quality gold crafted items on titan or ill be out of luck.

Your sum of the costs is off a bit. You don't need 162800 currency, but 400+1,400+6,100+10,000= 17,900
Multiplying that by the average cost of currency on your server (15k), that leads up to a price of about 268,500,000 gil. 268.5 million... seems a little bit more doable, I hope ^^; Too bad currency is usually 20+k on Odin T_T

Currency is 30-35K per piece on Seraph and it is now impossible to upgrade without a dynamis linkshell supporting you (600,000,000G estimated per full relic weapon).

On a side note, I think we only have 3 fully upgraded relic weapons on Seraph:

Muteki and his Yoichinoyumi (bow)
Lhexh and his Bravura (great axe)
Rave and his Excalibur (sword)

So we got a person who is bring Gilsellers into Dynamis on Cait sith named Ryudo. They are trying to sell currency for 50k per single unit and 5mil per 100 unit. Well I guess Relic weapons will become harder to get if you plan on buying currency from these FOOLS.

by the way...

THIS IS STUPIDITY!

Considering if your going to sell them for that much why buy it when EVERY ONE ELSE sells for 15k??????????????????? Really its pretty stupid

Jump on the band wagon if your on cait sith!

DO NOT BUY OVER PRICED MONEY

chances are they are being sold by gilseller mules and/or Ryudo's henchmen.

On my server (Cerberus) I'm in a dynamis linkshell where the leader usually sponsors the dynamis run i.e. s/he pays for the hourglass, but to pay it off s/he gets all currency, there are few others that sponsors the runs once in awhile to where they get to lot on all currency. Well, my idea (Depends on what your situation is) sponsor a few runs, I notice that a good 2-300 or more of which ever currency drop a run with rare 100bill drops. You could possibly use this as a way to either fund or get the commission items out of the way without the luck of lotting and so on. Well it's my thought on my situation, hopefully some of yours are the same or could be, mention the idea around and see what happens ^^;

To all those who wondered why this sword is so hard to get, inside dynamis areas its like a huge alliance, limitless, there are often 40+ high levels doing it at a time. It costs 1 million to run a dynamis, and during my last 3 only one 100 byne bill dropped... for one stage the fee is 14 of these, my Dyna LS sells them off to LS members for 1 mil, to keep the next dynamis free. 14 million? ouch this is just part of the fee. And you try farming the extra items when people are there to get their AF2, which is also dropped in dynamis areas.

It is rumored that no one on my server ( Bismarck) has this sword, i doubt that many servers have one, and if so its likely to be a japanese member lol.

Really quick little bit of info, the quest information and a few people in the thread have been saying from the 1st stage to the 2nd stage you have to wait 1 game day, this is wrong, I just waited two and it's not done yet, someone in ls who has done this said it's the next JP day, will be able to confirm this tomorrow.

Edit - Yep, the next JP day you will get the sword back.

Some of you know of my attempts at obtaining Excalibur, some don't, but I was asked to post information as I obtain it while working on my relic upgrade. Most of the information posted here so far is correct, however vague as it may seem.

Few details that are not commonly known:

After obtaining the Dynamis Sword, take it to the goblin NPC in Castle Zavhl Baileys and he will ask you to bring him an Attestation of Glory. Attestation of Glory can be obtained by killing the Hydra NM Goublefaupe, located in Dynamis-Beaucedine.

To get a chance to kill Goublefaupe, you must first travel to F-7 (Pso'xja tower). On the way you'll encounter the Hydra mobs, and when you reach the tower, there will be a Trigger NM (Vanguard Eye) you must defeat. Once it is defeated, 1 attestation NM pops in each [Pso'xja] tower.

Mildaunegeux [H-10]: MNK, NIN, SAM
Velosareon [J-8]: THF, DRK, RNG
Goublefaupe [H-8]: PLD, WAR, RDM
Dagourmarche [G-9]: BST, DRG, SMN
Quiebitiel [I-7]: WHM, BLM, BRD

Each NM is all three jobs at once, and they can use all 2-hrs several times.

After you obtain the attestation of glory, go back to the Goblin in Castle Zhavl Baileys and he will ask you to bring him a fee of 61 L. Jadeshells.

After you trade him all 61 L. Jadeshells, he will tell you to come back later. First time I had to wait a day, then last time I had to wait a week for the Dynamis Sword, for the Caliburn, he tells you it won't take nearly as long, but the 3 days will seem like forever.

Supposedly, after you recieve the Caliburn, you're supposed to wear it for awhile, especially in dynamis, and supposedly it'll start 'talking' to you. It will supposedly give you instructions on what to do next.

As far as the Holy Fragment goes; fragments are a confirmed 100% drop from Animated weapons in Dynamis-Xarcabard. The Holy Fragment is a drop off the Animated Sword. It is rumored that you have to defeat Yin and Yang before the the Animated weapons become active.

I believe, however, that the animated weapons pop after you defeat the last Demon NM. There will be a phrase that pops up on your screen like a Time Extension would. It is: "The prison of souls has set free its captive spirits!" I believe after that phrase, the animated weapons are accessible.

Please note, all Animated Weapons will be up and in thier places before you kill the last Demon NM, however, it is rumored that they do not drop anything until you have realeased their spirits from killing all the Demon NMs, at which point they become much stronger, and will then drop the Fragments.

Supposedly, after you obtain the Holy Fragment, your Caliburn will start talking alot telling you what to do next.

It is rumored that you'll take the Caliburn and the Holy Fragment to the gobbie in Castle Baileys and He'll ask for the Fragment, the Sword, and 10,000 currency. Then it is said to go to the pond in Dragon's Arey and trade a Necrospyche (common drop from Vanguard Dragon) for a final cutscene and your Excalibur.

I personally am working on the Fragment portion at the moment, and stand at 2500/10000 Bronzepieces for Excalibur.

I know this was posted awhile ago, but to clear a few things up...

NM Hydra Quiebitiel is a WHM BLM BRD. He drops Attestation of Sacrifice (club) and Attestion of Harmony (horn).. CONFIRMED.

NM Hydra Goublefaupe is PLD WAR RDM. He drops Attestation of Glory (sword) and Attestation of Force (great axe).. CONFIRMED.

(My Dynamis LS killed both of these NM Hydras on two occasions. The first time we got club and great axe attestations. The second time we got sword and horn.) (^.^)b

The upgrade to Caliburn definitely does not take a month (at least not anymore). A LS member obtained his after ~3 days.

Animated Weapons are definitely accessible prior to fighting Yin and Yang. I never really took notice to when they pop, though.

As of right now im getting materials for the weapon's construction before I start going to dynamis itself. As of right now im getting mixed info from the last two stages. (lvl 4 and 5) of the items drop itself. initially where does it drop ordeal.

Also more info, you can trade 100 of the individual currencies for a 100 version to any of the three merchant goblins at each beastmen fortress except for for the one at xarcabard, you can also buy the rare materials needed to up grade the sword to level 2 using acient currencies but because of these things are not like rain or gil, I would heavily suggest not doing that and go find somenoe who can craft very well for it and probably shovel out about anywhere from 500k to 2m, instead of 30x100 of a currency.

But heres my current progress (lvl 57 i cant go yet so stop pointing that out)

Lvl 1 Relic Sword 0/1

:practically good as done

Lvl 2 Relic Sword 0/1, Kor-I-Noor 1/1, Cerment Chunk 1/1, Orchanlium Chain 1/1, Peices 378/400

:ahead of schedule

Lvl 3 Glyptic Sword 0/1, Wing Sword 1/1, Mythril Sword 1/1, Bronze Sword 1/1, Bills 379/1400
:Somewhat behind on schedule

Lvl 4 Dynamis Sword 0/1, Attestation of Glory 0/1 0/6100 shells

:No where near done

Lvl 5 Caliburn 0/1, Holy Fragment 0/1

: Currently Researching the drop location of the holy fragment.

Lvl 6 Excalibur 0/1

: Dont we all want one?

edit: see below, also grammar minor errors, and update on status.

From what I've heard, part of the difficulty of completing the final steps is that the mobs which drop the various attestations and Step 5 items are far from the main route in the final two Dynamiss (Dynami? Dynamises? ^^)

So not only do you have to gather a very large group of competent players, you need to find people willing to go in with the understanding that it is NOT for finishing/clearing that Dynamis, but for farming only, since it will not be physically possible to reach both the drop mobs and the final boss. Given the cumulative cost of entering, in addition to the time commitment, this could be difficult. And I would assume the majority of people who are willing to do this are farming for their own items, therefore increasing the pool of people to lot against. But everyone's gotta have a dream...

4th Stage Commision

3rd stage will require ~6400 but I am pretty certain that the 4th stage does not have a commision.

From what I've read I believe the 4th requires defeating an "Animated" enemy in Dynamis-Xarcabard. In this case you would find the Animated Sword. The animated enemies talk just like an NPC and the only way to keep their "interest" is to have people use 2-hours and do MASSIVE damage on it. If you are not doing enough damage, the mob will become bored and will retreat.

The Animated Sword is what will drop the Holy Fragment. From the screenshots I've seen, I do not believe the fragment is a 100% drop.

belive it or not there is some info on these still missing... the last 2 stage's do have fee's as well for Commission...

Not to sure about the Excalibur per say, but judging ya the relic sythe (wich i do have thx to a JP screenshot from turning in the Assertaion of Vigor) this thing will be around 60-65 (yes you heard me on that) 100 Currency (Relic Sythe was 62), and a finaly 100 100 Currency (or 10000, but this is a complete guess and i hope im wrong) for the finaly... in gil speak a fully done relic runs anywhere from 90-100million gil -.-

screenthingy hear if ya dont belive it >.< http://www.angelfire.com/zine2/zar001/

From what the screenshot says, I saw a 62 after he said 100 byne bill. So for the 3rd upgrade, you need 62 Byne Bill for commision from Switchtix, and lol that would cost way more than what we would imagine ; ;. I'd be happy to get the 2nd upgrade if I ever get there.

P.S. To the person asking how the KoTR WS would look like, there's a video floating around about the net on how it looks like. And as for the damage, "Damage proportionate to current HP" whatever that means.

It's additonal effect: damage proportional to current HP (I.E. Spirits Within does damage proportional to current HP), and would suggest a Spirits-style add effect ignoring def etc. I guess it would hit at say 5% HP additional damage - that sounds fair although this is a complete shot in the dark.

This makes the add effect on excalibur amazing for mobs with v high defence, as if you wouldnt be uber enough already to posess one.

Knights of the Round?
# Jan 31 2005 at 4:55 AM Rating: Decent
24 posts
Ok, now.. when I think of being able to use Knights of the Round, I can't help but to think back to FFVII, where it was an uber summon that pawned all and did ungodly amount of damage. This is a different game, however, and I'm thinking that its not the same. So, I'm curious now, and my question is, what is Knights of the Round, and what does it do here...? Is it a WS..?

Knights of the Round is a weapon skill, and a powerful one at that. First of all, it is has a Level 3 Renkei (Light) embued within it. Then, if that's not enough damage already, then there's also a rumor that it is a twelve fold attack (like using Hexa Strike 2 times in a row). Either way, it will far outdamage any other weapon skill a sword can use. Not to mention the possibility that it can be used after a Darkness skillchain to chain into a Level 4 Renkei (rumors of Ultima are popping up). I'm looking forward to seeing people on Gilgamesh with this sword.

firs of all dynamis= is were you trade a hour glass to trial marking at the four cyties and beaucedine glacier and xarcabard <i've heard that havent really be there> seems like they did open them on other areas but so i'm not sure of the rest just can confirm you the beaucedine glacier one, if you wanna get to beaucedine glacier dynamis you must complete the 4 cyties before even think on going there and by what i can say easier is bastok > jeuno > san d'oria > and hell as windurst (wich my dynamis ls did like 6 times bfore clearing) then afther that at least on my dynamis ls there is lotting rules not everyone is allowed to lot on everything like: new members are only allowed to lot on crafting items (such as gold coins, lancewood logs and so on) everyone cans lot on relic weapons only people who have done dynamis with the group are allowed to lott for AF-2 (wich is not a common drop for any job) then comes the people who lott for 100 coins the 1 coins are autoloted so everyone has a chance to get them also thfs can steal them from white mages or NM in dynamis, the items needed for upgrade weapons are only lotted by the people who need it and have made the weapon that far on upgrade so not every pld is allowed to lott on that kinda item unless he has spend on upgrades if no pld has made it that far they all can lot on the item even if they dont need it (special case lets say) but until today i have yet to see that WS everything in dynamis happens so quick that no time for worring about it i've heard some people who can use the WS inside dynamis but none i've seen outside.

I think people already covered it but, getting to the 3rd stage of the weapon upgrade requires time, money and luck really. First 2 stages are enough to make people go crazy, but is attainable, good luck getting to the 3rd let alone the 4th. Excalibur is a sword that pretty much is a statement saying that you have worked so hard in your LS, and you deserve to get that sword.

Not only are the items you need to upgrade the sword extremely rare drops, but the Dynamis areas are meant for a total of 64 people, and everyone, not just the people in your party or alliance, can lot on all items. So even if one of the items does drop chances are alot of other people in Dynamis with you are going to want it.

because the items you need are VERY rare drops in dynamis( the highest lvl areas in game) and the upgrades by swithvix(whatever his name is) also take a VERY long time.

There are these markings in all the main cities and some other areas I don't know about. There are dynamis in Windhurst, Bastok, Sandy, maybe Jeuno, and a few other areas. You need to have some sort of hourglass to trade to these markings to get in. You need a huge alliance to even stand a chance in there and you all need to be very high level. I saw a group of JP players getting ready to go in, all of them had their AF armor, actually, it might have been their AF2/Relic armor. I dunno. But it was an awesome sight to see.

to get to dynamis min level is 65 and u have to beatin shadow lord which is at the end of rank 5. Once u are 65+ u talk to the goblin npcs in davoi beaduax or castle orjotoza <-- "is that right" and they will sell u a hour glass for 1 million which you trade to the trail markings in the city max number of people that can go 64 i think i wouldnt go without 30+ and plan on winning. U fight all nm's of each city like quadvs in bastok get no exp and u die very easy all mobs have two hours and are tough usually puller pulls on and 2 more mobs appear so u link 2 u fight 6 3- u fight 9 O.o all artifact two drops in each different city. And the relic weapons which can be upgraded to this weapon got the relic sword and a kal i nor got a long way to go and i got relic dagger 75rdm :)

The first two stages of upgrading the Relic Sword involve Switstix, the Goblin NPC just inside Castle Zvahl. You must go to him, trade him the weapon, the materials he requests, and pay him in Dynamis currency before he agrees to upgrade your weapon.

Stage 1: => Glyptic Sworc

Materials:
Koh-I-Noor
Orichalcum Chain
Cermet Chunk

Comission:
4 Montiont Silverpieces

Wait one game day, and he gives you the Glyptic Sword.

Stage 2: => Dynamis Sword

Materials:

Bronze Sword
Mythril Sword
Wing Sword

Comission:

14 100 Byne Bills

Wait one earth week (about) and you will receive the Dynamis Sword.

Stages 3 and 4 are muddy, as all the information comes from japanese sites and the english is unclear and the item names are mistranslated. From what I can gather, stage 3 requires obtaining an 'Attestation of Glory' (appears to be an item like the Genkai 5 Testimonies). This will upgrade your weapon to the Caliburn. Stage 4, the final stage, requires obtaining a 'Holy Fragment' from the pond in Dragon's Aery. It's probably a lot harder than that sounds. This game never lets you have anything this good (The Excalibur) without making you fight some nasty monsters and making you wait a long time.

Nice post, rated up... however to my understanding, the Attestation of Glory is a Drop from a Shadow NM in Dynamis-Beaucedine. It's a lotto drop and not gauranteed. Also there are like 10 other Attestations that drop from the same mobs, so you could litterally do Dynamis-Beaucedine 50 times and never get it ; ; After you DO get it you have to lot against all the PLDs and RDMs who need it too. Not an Easay task at all to upgrade. The Dynamis' that I've been in require you to have the 2nd stage weapon in order to lot on the Attestations.

Also to my understanding, the Holy Fragment is NOT obtained in Dragon's Arey. RATHER, you must take the Caliburn there and trade it AND the Holy Fragment to the ??? and you will 'supposedly' recieve a nice cutscene and the Final stage of the sword.

My main question is this: Where do I get a Holy Fragment? ><;

Quoted from MrBrisby in the Excalibur item page:

Lv. 1:

Relic Sword - Drop: Dynamis-Windurst

Lv. 2:

Relic Sword + Koh-I-Noor + Orichalcum Chain + Cermet Chunk (+ 4 Montiont Silverpieces as commission) - NPC: Switchstix (Castle Zvahl Baileys) = Glyptic Sword

Lv. 3:

Glyptic Sword + Bronze Sword + Mythril Sword + Wing Sword (+ 14 100-Byne Bills as commission) - NPC: Switchstix (Castle Zvahl Baileys) = Dynamis Sword

Lv. 4:

Dynamis Sword + Attestation of Glory - Hydra Corps (Dynamis-Beaucedine) = Caliburn

Lv. 5:

Caliburn + Holy Fragment (Rumor: Kindred Paladin in Dynamis-Xarcabard drops the fragment) - Holy Fragment --> Dragon's Aery (G-7) = Excalibur
