Zodiac I think of this as the collect tons of stuff stage. Based off a wiki, you need over 400k FFXIV Gil, 80k Company Seals, 1600 Allagan Tomestone of Poetics, drops from 16 dungeons
Here's a rundown of the process(ffxiv new majestic gear by chance)
Relics have gone from being top end gear to being intermediate gear useful for starting on the expansion. That said, the first few upgrade stages are easy enough to still be worthwhile. The Novus stage (the one where you need to successfully add 75 materia) is still going to be ridiculously expensive if you don't have all the materia stockpiled already, so you might want to stop at that point, but I'd recommend going up through either the Atma or perhaps Animus stage. Those are i100. (Animus has better stats than atma, but both are identified as the same item level.) Going all the way to Zeta (i135) is probably only for those who want to complete things for the sake of completing them, though.
Here's a rundown of the process as I understand it (though I've only gotten through the first few stages myself so far):
Getting the initial relic involves 5 trials, a dungeon, and a few open-world mobs, along with a bit of running around (particularly if you need to unlock those trials). Fairly involved, but also interesting, and you'll want some of those trials unlocked later anyway. To me, a job just doesn't feel complete without this step, which also gives you a job-specific title. (I'm "The Godsbow" and "The Shadow" so far.) It sure helps that trial queue times are currently pretty fast, even for DPS jobs.
Relic -> Zenith is just a turn in, trading your relic and some Thavnairian Mist (purchasable for a few Poetics) for Zenith. It's so trivially easy I wonder why they even included it as an upgrade step.
Zenith -> Atma involves running FATEs in each of 12 regions. (This used to be really grindy back when drop rates were low, but now drop rates have been raised high enough to make this a fairly quick and easy step.)
Atma -> Animus is more involved again, with 9 animus books that each involve dungeons, FATEs, leves, and mobs. I've only gotten as far as atma myself so far, but so far as I've heard, the frustrating part of this is that the FATEs needed are specific FATEs so you have to wait for the right ones to spawn. (Aside from that, the rest is a fair amount to do, but each part pretty easy, rather like the initial relic quest.)
Animus -> Novus This is the stage where you need alexandrite and materia, lots of them. SE has made the alexandrite cheaper to make this step a bit easier, but there's no nerfing the need for all that materia, which keeps this a pretty expensive step unless you have a big stockpile of it. It would take a dedicated completionist to still invest so much in a weapon that's no longer endgame relevant.
Novus -> Nexus You need to earn "Light" which is essentially a currency unique to this relic stage. You can get it from a wide array of activities (dungeons, trials, FATEs, Treasure Hunt, Alexandrite Maps, PvP), at least some of which you'd likely be doing anyway.
Nexus -> Zodiac I think of this as the "collect tons of stuff" stage. Based off a wiki, you need "over 400k FFXIV Gil, 80k Company Seals, 1600 Allagan Tomestone of Poetics, drops from 16 dungeons, 8 3-star HQ crafted items, many desynthesis items and some miscellaneous items." Umm... yeah. It's probably a good thing only dedicated completionists would get this far anyway.
Zodiac -> Zeta Awaken 12 different mahatmas with 50 poetics and 40 light points each, the light obtainable from dungeons and trials. Anyone who goes as far as Zodiac should finish off Zeta just because who would stop at the second to last stage?
Yoshida recent interview about Final Fantasy XIV
They answered some of our suggestions really well with Final Fantasy XIV Heavensward but also made some dumb mistakes, lets hope they can fix it in future and do even better with 4.0.
There are over 7M characters that exist in FFXIV
A user on Reddit recently conducted a large-scale analysis of Lodestone (check for yourselves). There are over 7M characters that exist in FFXIV - yet only 385K FFXIV Gil have reached 60
I just switched to Warrior from Dark Knight for my current static
One thing though is I probably would go with 15000 if your healers/static is brand new to A1s until everyone gets their bearings, then go more Strength from there.
If you define expensive as 1 ffxiv gil then your going to be right
Your relying too much on limited supply which over time will become not so limited as caps get raised like always do plus quantity of people who can obtain and sell ffxiv gil

Final Fantasy XIV - I enjoy and prefer it as a tank
I prefer and want Dark Knight as a tank, but not the tank it currently is. It has no identity other than to look cool, and do more MT damage than Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn Paladin.
