Final Fantasy XI Abjuration Items Guide





In the world of Vana'diel there are powerful items created through a set of simple but difficult actions. The idea behind this equipment involves cursed items that can only be utilized by finding a corresponding abjuration to remove the curse and transform it into usable equipment. The final equipment is often referred to as "abjuration armor", because of the process involved in creating it. There are six different sets of abjuration armor, which each contain pieces for five armor slots: head, body, hands, legs and feet. All of the abjuration armor has a few characteristics in common: it is all Rare and Exclusive, it can only be used by a level 73 or higher character, and it is all limited in the jobs that can wear it. There are positive and negative effects on abjuration armor; wearing all five pieces from a single set gives large bonuses to certain stats, along with counterbalancing penalties to others. Apart from the six sets of armor, there are two abjuration items used to create consumable food and drink items.

Three steps are needed to create a usable uncursed item: obtaining an abjuration item, obtaining the crafted cursed item that matches it, and taking them to the priest Alphollon C Meriard to create the final, usable item.

1) Obtaining an Abjuration Item -
Abjuration items are dropped from some of the hardest monsters across Vana'diel, making this a difficult task indeed. Alliances of characters level 70+ are required to take down the guardians, Gods, and other powerful opponents that provide abjuration items. Each of these monsters only drop a handful of the many different abjuration items. The armor abjuration items are all Exclusive, while the abjurations used to create consumables are Exclusive, but not Rare; this limits the availability of abjuration items to those characters who are personally involved in defeating these dangerous foes. When an abjuration item drops, it is usually given to one of the characters in the alliance who has a job that can utilize the final level 73 armor. An armor abjuration item can be used with either the standard or high quality version of its respective cursed piece.

2) Obtaining a Crafted Cursed Item - A cursed piece is a crafted item that cannot be worn or utilized by itself. All cursed items require very high level crafting skills to create: skill above 90 is needed in the primary crafting guild, and some pieces also require a secondary crafting skill of 50-60. These cursed items are not Rare or Exclusive, and can be sold in the Auction House under the Others / Cursed Items category. The ingredients required to create a cursed item are often expensive on their own, causing many of the cursed items to cost hundreds of thousands or even millions of gil if purchased at the Auction House. All of the cursed items that can be turned into armor also have a high quality version. These high quality cursed items are notated with a -1 after the name, which is then turned into the high quality +1 armor. For example, the standard item to use with the Aquarian Abjuration: Head is the Cursed Crown, which creates a Zenith Crown. If the abjuration item is instead used with the high quality Cursed Crown -1, it becomes the more powerful Zenith Crown +1 when it is uncursed.

3) Removing the Curse - After the difficult process of obtaining the abjuration item and the cursed piece, this is rather easy. Go to the cathedral in San d'Oria North and talk with the NPC Alphollon C Meriard. He will offer to perform a ceremony to purify any cursed item you have; trade him both the abjuration item and the appropriate cursed item to receive the usable armor or consumable item. For example, a character who had an Oblation Abjuration and a crafted Cursed Soup would trade both of those to the priest, and obtain an Ambrosia in return.

There is no restriction on how many items a character can have from the abjuration sets, although since the armor is all Rare, only one copy of each piece of armor can be obtained. The abjuration food, drink, and armor sets are listed below, grouped together by the abjuration type required to create them. Click on any of the items to see more information, including where they drop or the recipes for crafting them.

Wyrmal Abjuration
  • The Wyrmal Abjuration armor set is unlike the rest of the abjuration armor, in that it does not have any negative attributes listed on it. There is a hidden negative effect, however: all the Wyrmal Abjuration items cause the wearer to be listed as a Dragon in relation to the Dragon Killer effect. This means that Dragoon monsters and characters, Demon and Wyvern monsters, or characters using equipment with the effect can cause the character wearing Wyrmal Abjuration equipment to be intimidated. (This can also be a problem when working with tanks who are using items like the Tatami Shield, which also provides a small Dragon Killer effect; if a character wearing Wyrmal Abjuratuion armor tries to cast spells such as cures on the tank, the caster can be intimidated.) Bonuses on the armor are provided in a wide range of areas, with something useful for each of the various jobs that can utilize this equipment. The cuisses are especially notable, as there are only a handful of other items available that can increase movement speed.
  • The Wyrmal Abjuration armor is level 73 equipment that can be used by the following jobs: Blue Mage, Corsair, Dark Knight, Dragoon, Paladin, Ranger, Red Mage.
