From the album FFXIV Pics
So, to my surprise, they actually added another step in with patch 3.55a bringing anima weapons up to par with the raid weapons of the game (item level 275). So I now have a weapons on par with the best weapons in the game and probably better for me anyways since the weapon is tailored to what I want.
I do like the blue glow it has now but I still think the swords are rather bland looking. I might glamour the Spurs of the Thorn Prince over them at some point but that blue is just to pretty. On a side note I've actually had these done for two weeks an took the screen shots shortly after getting them but I was, yet again, too lazy to post the pics (that and Horizon took all my free time that weekend).
