Both weapon types, Eureka & Anima, are unlockable after you have reached a certain level respectively. Once you reach it, you will have to unlock certain quests by talking to different NPCs in the game. And after that, it’s a grind to get the resources that will allow you to upgrade your weapon to either Eureka or Anima in FFXIV, maybe even higher than that.

Eureka is the Relic Weapon that came with the Stormblood expansion in update 4.25. First off, you will need to clear your Lvl 70 job quests. This is a requirement as the reward from these quests will provide you with the weapon that will be turned into Eureka. Once you have completed your Lvl 70 job quest, you will be rewarded with the Antiquated Weapon. If lost or discarded, you can purchase it from the Calamity Salvager for 1000 Gil in any of the starting 3 cities. Now its time to go to the Forbidden Land of Eureka which is divided into 4 regions

  • Eureka Anemos
  • Eureka Pagos
  • Eureka Pyros
  • Eureka Hydatos

You will have to go to each of these regions to obtain their specific loot. When you go to one of these regions, you will start at Lvl 1 Elemental magic. All the monsters will display Lvls similar to yours. Side note, having prior weapons like the Lux Weapons or the Zodiac Zeta Weapons will not give an advantage at the get-go of the Quest. Better weapons will help out in the long run but it is not a necessity.

You can this loot by killing different monsters in the region. Be careful as the monster levels should be in the range of 1 to 2 levels from yours. Also, you will need a party to take out certain monsters like FATEs. So keep your chat box open for any team-ups. Another thing is if you die, don’t respawn. Respawn will make you lose hours of level grinding. Instead, ask for rez in the chatbox and someone will come to revive you. To send such a message, in the chat type out a message and then the pos command. If you see an Elemental pos, go to it for EXP and Damage buffs. Eureka Tracker is an amazing tool to keep a track of FATEs and where to go for grinding EXP. Other sources like the Wiki and Reddit also help.
