The biggest addition to Final Fantasy XIV via Patch 6.11 is the new Ultimate raid, Dragonsong’s Reprise. This is an extremely difficult gauntlet of Savage-style fights that remixes the iconic battles from the Heavensward expansion. Nidhogg, Hraesvelgr, King Thordan, and the Knights of the Round are some of the opponents you face in Dragonsong Ultimate. To reward your skill and perseverance, all players who clear Dragonsong’s Reprise can earn an Ultimate Weapon of the Heavens — and these are some of the best looking weapons in the game.
Here, we’ve compiled in-game screenshots of each new Ultimate weapon for every Job so you can see all of them in one place. They all have a distinct golden glow with the sharp iconography of the Ishgardian art style, which coincides with the Heavensward-themed Ultimate. These are all level 90 weapons at item level 605. To earn these weapons, you need to clear Dragonsong Ultimate — all players who clear it will earn one (1) Dragonsong Token which they can turn into Nesvaaz in Radz-at-Han (X: 10.6, Y: 10.0)for an Ultimate weapon of their choice. Players can only earn one token per week.
We have a guide on how to unlock Dragonsong’s Reprise, but to sum it up here, you need to have cleared Asphodelos: The Fourth Circle (Savage) from the Pandaemonium raid series. It’s a sort of skill check, because Ultimate-level duties are very, very hard, and require a lot of commitment from a full party. They’re essentially five (5) consecutive Savage bosses you have to defeat in a two-hour window, with complex mechanics and various phases. If the party wipes, you have to start at the beginning. Most folks who attempt it will know the deal, but if you want Dragonsong Ultimate to be your first, just be aware of what you’re getting into.

Director and producer Naoki Yoshida also gave his recent thoughts on player conduct in PVP, so take it as a warning if you’re getting spicy in Crystalline Conflict.
