A YouTube show named Arcade Arms—not to be confused with the similar show Man at Arms—forges real-life replicas of weapons from videogames. In their latest episode, they forge the Gae Bolg, a legendary Dragoon weapon from Final Fantasy XIV.

    As this was my first (and currently only) Relic Weapon, seeing it made like this just makes me smile.

    Gae Bolg? Isn’t that from The Last Remnant? :S

      Gae Bolg is the mythical weapon held by the Celtic hero, Cu Chulainn.

        And yet somehow, the video game weapons manage to be even less impressive then the Gáe Bolg was in Irish mythology. :(

        A fancy looking spear is boring in comparison to a simple Javelin that expands into 30 points upon piercing the body; kind of like a spear version of a dumdum bullet. :)

    Well, the “almost impossible to get” part is laughable, but otherwise, neat.

  • RingoRinn

    Have to say that all the information about the game is very outdated.
    Seems they interviewed the SQ Staff last year or so when getting Relic
    was harder

  • Christopher Pierce

    Its not really that hard to get your Relic weapons, getting a competent group on the other hand……

      I lucked out by accidentally joining a FC only group for Titan in party finder and they let me stay ‘-’
