If you are wondering how to obtain Resistance Weapons in FF14 then you are at the right place. In this post, we are going to guide you on how do you gain Memories for Resistance Weapons in FFXIV. These Resistance Weapons are some sort of weapons that can be upgraded with memories! It can somehow remember the souls it has slain. That is something edgy in its class.

You need to complete the Save the Queen Questline to get the memories required for your resistance weapons. For all those upgrades you need all sorts of strange memories. You need memories of the sorrowful, tortured, harrowing, and the bitter memories.

How to get the Memories for your Resistance Weapons

You can pick up a quest called ‘Change of Arms’ after you clear Castrum Lacus Litore. You can find the quest and pick it up from the Zlatan in Gangos. If you are looking forward to upgrade your Resistance weapon then you can do so by getting 15 loathsome memories of the dying.

After clearing the level 510 alliance raids at Crystal Tower, Syrcus Tower, of the World of Darkness, you can obtain these memories. With every clearance you will get one memory. These can be found at the Critical Engagements in the Bozjan Southern Front, however, you will find the drop rate is quite low. So, this way may not be the most appropriate way for you.

Once you are done with the above then you can pick up the quest called ‘The Resistance Remembers’ which asks for 18 haunting memories and 18 vexatious memories. You can get the memories by doing particular raids just like the loathsome memories.

For the haunting memories, you need to clear the level 60 alliance raids at void Ark at the Weeping City of Mhach or the Dun Scaith. For vexatious memories, you need to clear the level 70 Ivalice raids at the Royal city of Rabanastre, the Ridorana Lighthouse or the Orbonne Monastery. Both of these memories can be found by the drops by Fates at Gyr Abania zones in the Fringes, the Lochs, the Peaks. But the drop rates are not that great so if you like you can stick to the raids and avoid these drops.

You will need one more quest to cap the whole thing and it is called ‘A New Path of Resistance’. You will require 15 timeworn artefacts. The good part is that they are not gross memories. You can find these easily at the Palace of the dead or Delubrum Reginae. When you have completed the above quests then finally you can upgrade your Resistance Weapons.


Resistance Weapons can be upgraded with the above ways and they are a new series and they are ultimate weapons which the adventurers can obtain in Final Fantasy 14.
