Upgrading your Zenith to Atma
“Haha I got my Atma in one fate!” – You.
“Haha, 200 fates and no Atma!” – You.
This page details the process to upgrade your currently owned zenith relic to an atma relic. (IE: Thyrus Zenith to Thyrus Atma) Lost? You might be looking for the previous step Base/Zenith, or the next step Animus.
Okay, before your expectations for an epic quest rise here, I’m going right ahead and saying that this step involves Fate grinding. Yeahp! You have to collect 12 different Atmas, from 12 different maps. They are dropped with a low drop rate from Fates in that region (Sample item: Atma of the Ram). Okay – so where and how?
Atma drop locations
|Atma of the MAIDEN||Central Shroud|
|Atma of the SCORPION||Southern Thanalan|
|Atma of the WATER BEARER||Upper La Noscea|
|Atma of the GOAT||East Shroud|
|Atma of the BULL||Eastern Thanalan|
|Atma of the RAM||Middle La Noscea|
|Atma of the TWINS||Western Thanalan|
|Atma of the LION||Outer La Noscea|
|Atma of the FISH||Lower La Noscea|
|Atma of the ARCHER||North Shroud|
|Atma of the SCALES||Central Thanalan|
|Atma of the CRAB||Western La Noscea|
Can I Fate grind with any class and get atma? No, sadly. You have to use your class while your Zenith is equipped.
Can I use another weapon while trying to get atmas? No, in case you missed the above.
Do I have to get gold for atmas to drop? No, any level of fate COMPLETION gets it.
How do I know if I got the atma? Oh, you’ll know. A little window with a distinct sound effect pops up:
Atma farming tips:
Don’t ever farm two of the same Atma: It happens to the best of us. Please do yourself a favor and re-check the table above so you wont waste time.
Spiritbonding? Sadly, it’s kinda hard to gain value from this step of relic. With the wildly varying levels in each zone, it’s impractical to attempt spiritbonding.
Tag an go: It might seem rude, but if your goal is getting Atmas, you just need to hit/kill a single fate creep and proceed to the next. Please don’t be an a$$, though, and complete fates when you’re not especially pressed for time.
