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

The first upgrade will require:

Fee: Lungo-Nango Jadeshell x5

The Relic Scythe is a drop from Dynamis - Bastok. The Mammoth Tusk is crafted (Bonecraft 94) from a Giant Frozen Head which is dropped in Dynamis - San d'Oria and Dynamis - Beaucedine. The Manticore Leather and Rainbow Obi can be crafted or bought at the Auction House. Trade all four items and payment in Jadeshells to Switchstix and he will upgrade it to a Memento Scythe. You will need to wait one game day.

The second upgrade will require:

Fee: Montiont Silverpiece x16

Trade all four items and the fee to Switchstix and he will upgrade your Memento Scythe to a Dynamis Scythe. You must wait one Earth week.

The third upgrade will require:

Fee: One Hundred Byne Bill x62

The Attestation of Vigor drops from the notorious monster Velosareon in Dynamis - Beaucedine. Trade these two items and the fee to Switchstix and he will upgrade your Dynamis Scythe to the Bec de Faucon. The Bec de Faucon will allow you to use the special weapon skill Catastrophe, but only in Dynamis areas.

The fourth upgrade will require:

Fee: Rimilala Stripeshell x1

The Tenebrous Fragment drops from the Animated Scythe in Dynamis - Xarcabard.

Trade the Bec de Faucon, the fragment, the Necropsyche, and the currency to the blank space at (F-7) in North Gustaberg (accessible only by traveling through Dangruf Wadi) to receive a cutscene, your Apocalypse, and 30 Lungo-Nango Jadeshells.

I don't know how your LS's or servers do dyna.
The Dyna LS I'm in at them moment lets you host your own Dynas.
As long as you pay for the dyna, You can lot all the currance.
For every host, You get around, Bleh 100~ normal Bill's Shell's or coins. If your lucky you can get 1 to 2 Lungo-Nango Jadeshell's, Montiont Silverpieces, or 100 Byne Bills.
Costing 1 Million gil to host, You can make around 4-6Million.
Saving your coins or shells gives your a BIG discount!
Also, at the end of the relic, you do get bills back, Sooooo, By borrowing from your best friend thats working on his relic, or saving to start, you can save yourself some time!
good luck if you do start on this monster of a quest! o.-

I don't know about upgrading relic weapons anymore now a days. Single currencies are going for 100k and the 100 currencies going for around 10-12 mil. Its ridiculous now on bahamut after Christmas. Guessing upgrading a relic has gone up from 4-500mil to more like 6-800mil. Good luck though
# Jan 31 2006 at 6:29 AM Rating: Decent
and all this stuff is supposed to be 3-500M?

Someone help me out here, KI's info on this is different. No where is a R. Stripeshell mentioned, and the 60 100 Byne Bill fee isn't either. Did it change or something? Now it almost seems attainable...

how do you get the "R. Stripeshell"?

The Stripeshell is the 10000 currency piece of the Windy currency. So like trading 100 Whiteshells gets you 1 Jadeshell, you need 100 Jadeshells to get a Stripeshell. The final ridiculous step in why final relic weapons are so pretendously difficult to obtain.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 12 2005 at 10:17 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) lol I dont care about how i format what im saying, i dont care that much. and if you know how to speak english you can understand what im saying, and im not writing a research paper for a grade here. alittle reality check buddy.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 11 2005 at 2:45 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) either way, looking at your first post. You were in the wrong guy. you could of kindly explained things, but you were an *******. And your type deserves to choke on their own blood in front of a mirror so they can see how pathetic they really are.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 11 2005 at 12:24 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) First off i never said i was better than anyone else posting here, and no noone here said they knew everything, but they talk as if what they are saying is true fact and u shouldnt run ur mouth when u dont know what you are talking about, and I far from sit in front of my tV and play final fantasy games all day, maybe you bring up something you dont like about urself? And I'm a pretty nice person, but i can be mean when i want to be especially to nobodies such as urself who think they r big talkers. And this isnt really out of my way anymore that its out of urway to post some moronic thing as u did, and its also not a good idea to personally attack someone you dont even know, and talk about their life which you know nothing about smart guy, usually people talk about others life when they are upset about theirs so have fun with that one, and im wrong all the time like everyone else but i know when im right and when someone says something wrong i have to say something about it. Have a good day champ.

Frankly your acting like a child. A child who never learned how to seperate paragraphs or format his text.

"WTF are you talking about you n00b, I was never beat up in high school or anything of the moronic things you just said just quit life cause you suck at it, I only make it a point to make people feel dumb when they say sh*t that is stupid, kinda like what you did you..."

A more properly formatted form would be-

"WTF are you talking about you nOOb! I was never beat up in High school or any of the moronic things you just said. Just quit life cause you suck at it. I only make it a point to make people feel dumb when they say sh*t that is stupid, kinda like what you did..."

Notice the use of periods in the place of many comas?

If you ever want to have your opinions recognised for anything, you must learn to present them in a manner That is easily understood. Ignorance is one thing, but rudeness along with a side of ignorance is a whole other. ^_^

actually my Gallow friend. I see no one on here claiming to know everything. But you. I see people attempting to provide an answer to something some people might not know about. And then i see you, putting them down for it. I dont need to feel better about anything.
I come on here to look up info on my last part upgrade, and see some jackass on here talkin down to everyone like hes some omnipotent versatile being in the game.
Get over yourself.
your no better than anyone in this game, period.
you didnt have to be an *******, you could have politley provided the correct answers to the things people got wrong.
But...cant stop someone from showin their true colors i guess.
Now....hmmm. To go out of your way and attempt to prove everyone is wrong but you....whos really upset about their life here?
oh yeah.
i know.
and now that its out in the open, ive gotta get back to my crappy life where its ok to be wrong sometimes.
wait...actually thats not so bad.
you should try it some time.
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 23 2005 at 1:39 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I love how ppl come on here thinking they know something, you're a ******* idiot, you know nothing of my life or how i live it, you must be so upset about urs that u have to put anothers down to make urself feel better. anyway, i only bash someone if they come onto a forum talking like they know what they r saying is fact when its complete nonsense, and no i dont think of myself as a final fantasy master, and my life is pretty good actually outside of this game and i have lots of friends in the game you **** tard so why dont u get the **** out of ur *** and think for a second k?

well not everyone can sit in front of the tv all day playing final fantasy games and memorizing every little detail about them. So people come here and ask questions, or they get a name of an item wrong.
Im almost sorry your offended that someone messed up and dephiled your lifes work so much that you gotta come on here shootin off the word N00b every 5 words in a sentence because you deem yourself to be the final fantasy master. and im sure when i say get a life, i cannot explain myself monosyllabically enough for you to comprehend what it means.

Im sorry you lost your life somewhere along the lines and built a new one on ffxi. but even in a fantasy world, No one wants to be your friend.

Final Heaven was first mentioned in the game FF7 for the character Tifa. I believe it was a Limit Break. Similar to our Weapon Skills in this game. So yea, we all know how SE likes to be original and not recycle old ideas...[/sarcasm] As for Mr. Rant and Rave at the top of this page. You are obviously 10, or 40 and single and got the **** kicked out of him in high school for being a geek. So just chill, man, I never shoved that that traffic cone up your *** and stole your trig book, ok? Let it go...
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 07 2005 at 1:49 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Omfg you freaking noobs have you no idea what is what in this game, you run your mouth like you know what you are talking about but you have no idea...first off whoever said this will only cost about 20 million or less is an idiot this will run you at least 80million gil, give or take a few million depending on your server, the attestation drop from the Hyrda Dark Knight is pretty much a for sure drop so it wont be a waste to sponsor a run for it. In order to get the final upgrade you need a "10,000 byne bill" from Dynamis-Lord, that's probably the hardest part about the whole quest for any full-upgrade relic weapon. To the person who said "can I buy this?" You are a freaking idiot its rare/ex you nooblet, you should quit the game and life for that matter, and to the person who bought his account, whoopdie doo for you, you don’t deserve it so don’t brag that you have it, and I think you are lying as well because no one with a fully upgraded relic weapon would sell their account for 500 dollars. And the Hand-to-hand final WS is "Final Heaven" not 7th-Heaven you noobs, Jesus where do you people get this stuff. And it has nothing to do with barrets Limit break, you can't compare FF7 to FF11 moron. Ok I'm bored making you all look like noobs now so I'm gonna go.

lol? 80M for a fully upgraded Relic? riiight... and you call other people "noobs"? lol... you must be in Fairy-land where all the 100 dynamis-currency is 430k... lol cheapest I've ever heard of is 1,000,000... and well.. that's very rare. usually go for 2,500,000 to 3,000,000. so next time, try ~550,000,000g for a relic :P

EDIT: omg xD I didn't read everything you said, but man... you know very little about the Apocalypse.. it's not 10,000 Byne bill for the last upgrade. it's a Rimirara Stripeshell, which is the 10,000 version of Tukuku Whiteshell.
I'm gonna stop correcting you. You've already made an *** out of yourself :P

If the idea of him buying his account disgusts u, then look at his char profile.

The full af1 with a super duper hell on earth scyth makes me laugh... alot.

Then again, what do i know? I am just a silly lil taru ^_^.

RE: r.stripeshell
# Sep 21 2005 at 5:36 PM Rating: Decent
It's supposedly an extremely rare drop from Dynamis Lord. However, this is yet to be confirmed.
How you WILL get it, is by trading 100 Lungo-Nango Jadeshells, and you will be given a Rimirara Stripeshell. (that's about 300,000,000g)

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...


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!


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

It says..The Mammoth Tusk is crafted (Bonecraft 94) from a Giant Frozen Head which is dropped in Dynamis - San d'Oria and Dynamis - Beaucedine.

Is the only way to obtain the Mammoth Tusk is to have 94 bonecraft?
RE: clarify
# Sep 21 2005 at 5:41 PM Rating: Decent
Nope. it isalso one of the items that can be recieved by trading Dynamis-Currency. however, getting a Giant Frozen head for 10k and letting a Bonecrafter skillup on crafting one for free is by far the better choice <,<
