Abjurations are items that are used to "purify" cursed pieces of armor and food items. Abjurations are obtained in many different ways. Abjurations are Rare and Exclusive. To use an abjuration a person must have the corresponding cursed item.
Abjurations are obtained in five ways: HNMs, Einherjar, Voidwatch, Legion, and Geas Fete in Escha - Ru'Aun. Sky and land HNMs, as well as Einherjar, drop abjurations corresponding the eight level 73~75 armor sets and consumables. Voidwatch and Legion drop abjurations which correspond to the five level 99 armor sets. With Geas Fete in Escha - Ru'Aun dropping the abjurations corresponding to the eleven Item Level 119 armor sets.
Cursed, Hexed, Bewitched, Voodoo, Vexed, and Jinxed Armor
Cursed (level 73&75), hexed, bewitched, voodoo, vexed, and jinxed (all five level 99) equipment are synthesizable items that can be found on the Auction House under Others -> Cursed Items.
Cursed equipment cannot be equipped until "uncursed" or "purified;" while hexed, bewitched, voodoo, vexed, and jinxed equipment can be equipped while "cursed," incurring severe penalties to a player's various attributes while equipped.
The HQ version of cursed and hexed equipment is denoted by a -1 (e.g. Cursed Slacks -1), with voodoo gear being the HQ version of bewitched gear, and jinxed being the HQ version of vexed. Once uncursed, voodoo, jinxed, and -1 gear will become the HQ version of the corresponding abjuration armor (e.g Zenith Slacks +1).
I've already removed the curse for my Cursed and Hexed Gears in the past, what now?
In order to enhance equipment that has already been cleansed using this method, the cleansed equipment must have its original curse or hex restored using the synergy crucibles. Refer to the Update Notes for details under the New synergy recipes Section : http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxi/threads/47901
- For the Hexed/Cursed gears that had previous augments on it, it must be restore to the original state. Just trade the gear to the crucible WITHOUT any scrap/tatter and complete the synergy recipe.
Purifying Cursed Items
Once you have obtained a cursed item and its corresponding abjuration, proceed to Northern San d'Oria. In a small room to the left inside the cathedral, you will find Alphollon C Meriard. Trade him the cursed item and abjuration; he will use the abjuration to lift the curse, and reward you immediately with the purified item.
Augmenting Purified Armor
The thirteen level 73~99 Abjuration armors can be enhanced with augments via Synergy:
The eleven item level 119 Abjuration armors can be enhanced with augments via the NPC Nolan at (I-7) in Norg:
- As with other Escha Rewards, there are four possible augment paths that may be chosen and advanced in increasing potency levels with the application of Eschalixir/+1/+2s. See Nolan for more details.
