Even though we are only one month into the release of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward's patch 3.1, patch 3.15 is right around the corner on December 16th. Normally patches that fall between big content patches are small with only hotfixes and balance adjustments, but patch 3.15 is bringing back the return of the long awaited relic weapon quest line and maybe the return of certain manly inspector. The new line of relic weapons will be called "Anima" weapons this time around. What we know so far about them is very little outside of a few pieces of concept art from a previous live letter, and a short blurb with a few pictures from the recent Anima weapon preview off the Lodestone. You can check out that preview below.

A young researcher hailing from the Near East has come to Eorzea in search of aid. His field of study? Anima, an essence he considers to be a reflection of the soul. Through a chance encounter with the master craftsman Gerolt, he and the legendary blacksmith have joined forces to create a weapon the likes of which the realm has never seen.
