Last time, I shared with you guys the Hard Mode Primals Quests and the requirements and rewards in doing them. Now let’s take a look at the Extreme Mode of the Primal fights. This is something you can’t miss as primal fights are among the best in the game.
Extreme Mode Primals
This guide is from a post in Reddit aimed to help newcomers. It still applies to older players that haven’t done Extreme Mode Primals.
The first three Extreme Mode primals are given in the previous section, as they follow the Hard Mode Primal quest chain.
As the following Extreme Primals require finishing the story of a given patch level, the patch level needed is given in a Story Level column.
While The King Lives and The Whorl of a Time have no requirements besides finishing their patch’s main story, Judgment Bolts and Lightning also requires the completion of both The King Lives and The Whorl of a Time before unlocking, and Drop Dead Shiva also requires the completion of Judgment Bolts and Lightning.
The i95 reward weapons can be upgraded into i100 by trading a Mirror of the Whorl with the NPC Aliana in Revenant’s Toll. The i110 reward items can be upgraded into i120 by trading Diamond Dust with the same NPC.
The Odin trial rewards particularly low item level gear meant to be used for the looks through the Glamour system.
Collecting all six mounts from the Extreme primals (excluding Nightmare) unlocks the A Legend for a Legendsidequest from the Wandering Minstrel (Revenant’s Toll), which rewards the Kirin mount and the Ichiban achievement.
