Celestial Weapons


Each character has his or her own Celestial Weapon (aka Legendary Weapons). To start off with, the sole advantage offered by these weapons is that they can penetrate any armour but you must upgrade them to gain the weapons full potential. Some of which are easy tasks whereas others are just long and sometimes frustrating (Lightning Dodge being one of these).

Although you would be forgiven to think these only benefit your party but they also boost Aeons. For example if you get Yuna's Nirvana, Break Damage Limit effect will happen on Valefor. Apart from Tidus and Rikku, each characters weapon boosts a different Aeon which I will tell you about.


Obtain the Celestial Mirror, each characters base weapon and their respective crest and sigil.

Walkthrough Contents


You must first win the Cloudy Mirror in the Chocobo race beneath the Remiem Temple (you do not need any chests when doing this, just beat the other Chocobo).

In Macalania Woods, you can then convert the Cloudy Mirror into the Celestial Mirror. To do this, go to the South section of the woods where you will find a mother and her child. She is waiting for her husband who is loitering around the Campsite. Talk to him and he will rush to his wife's side. Follow him and keep talking to the couple until their child has wandered off. You'll find him on the crystal path above Macalania Woods - Central. Talk to the boy and examine the large crystal: The Mirror will now undergo a metamorphosis.

Celestial Crystal

Remember this location as each Celestial Weapon will upgrade with the associated crest and sigil here (even if you have both crest and sigil for a character you will need to examine it twice, a cutscene for each upgrade as it where).

  1. The Attack Reels are sometimes offered as prizes for a Tournament victory - so win the Tournament.
  2. Once you have the Attack Reels, you'll have to fight 250 regular fiend battles. The Status Reels will the be offered as a reward for winning in the next League session. This means that you must first complete a Leagure and then finish the subsequent League in first place.
