Upgrading your Nexus to Zodiac (The FINAL STEP…for now)
This page details the process to upgrade your currently owned Nexus Relic to a Zodiac Weapon. (IE: Thyrus Nexus to Nirvana) Lost? You might be looking for the previous step Nexus, or the next step Zeta.
Popularly referred to as Atma 2.0, you need to find certain “Atmas”, but instead of Fates, they drop from dungeons. That’s just as bad as it sounds. Time to go out and find those Lost Treasures!
Lost Treasure FAQ
You DO NOT NEED to equip your relic. A small bonus, you can use your best weapon to make grind times a LITTLE less.
You DO NOT NEED to use your “relic class”. As good as it sounds. Consider using a tank or healer to improve queue times, and ensure better speedruns. Overall, a great bonus to break the monotonous factor of having to use your class (ahem, Nexus)
You NEED to do them in “order”. The quest to find lost treasure come in chunks of four. You cannot skip ahead. Look at the table below. You cannot skip to Treasure 2 if you haven’t found Treasure 1, but you can look for Treasure 1 and Treasure 3 of different quests.
