Resistance Weapons

Introduction

Resistance Weapons are the level 80 Relic Weapons for Shadowbringers. Players need to complete the Resistance Weapons quest chain to obtain one of the relics, and they are heavily tied in with the Save the Queen: Blades of Gunnhildr storyline. As players advance through the Resistance Weapons quests they will be able to obtain job-specific weapons which can be enhanced as they progress. Certain Resistance Weapon quests employ a system which will require players to proceed using the same class or job with which they accepted the quest.
