Hi! This guide is all about the Royal Tombs and Armigers (or Royal Arms) in FFXV. Locations, where to find them, are they optional? Recommended level? Can you miss them?

FFXV Royal Tombs & Royal Arms Summary

This is just a rundown of the Armigers and Tombs. More details in the sections below.

Tombs & Armigers – Notes on Locations and Hot to Get

I “could” add mini-guides on the dungeons, if needed. They’re quite basic…

Royal Arms 1: Sword of the Wise

Armiger: Sword of the Wise
Tomb of the Wise: Keyatrich Ruins area.

Getting this Royal Arms is part of the main storyline, so you cannot miss it.

Royal Arms 2: Axe of the Conqueror

Armiger: Sword of the Conqueror
Tomb of the Wise: Keyatrich Ruins

This is optional, but very VERY hard to miss as Cor points you to it, and mentions that there is definitely a tomb over there. I would be hard pressed to find a guy that missed this.

You can get this at any point after you get the key from Cor.

Royal Arms 3: Bow of the Wise

Armiger: Bow of the Wise
Tomb of the Wise: Balouve Mines

“Where’s Balouve Mines located?” There’s actually a parking spot with that exact name, haha. It’s in Leide, just south of Longwythe Rest Area. The mines itself are located just east of the parking station. The path leading to it is very obvious.

One of the more difficult ones to obtain, Balouve Mines tomb protector is level 52, but is considered a night creature – so he hurts like hell, and has a ton of HP.

“I beat the guy, where’s the tomb in the mines!?” Hehe, go up those metal stairs and look at the stone platforms (ITS WITHIN THIS CHASM-ROOM THING), there’s one of those skinny passageways that you gotta squeeze through. Use the quest indicator as a guide.

You can get this at any point after you get the key from Cor.

Royal Arms 4: Swords of the Wanderer

Armiger: Swords of the Wanderer
Tomb of the Wanderer: Greyshire Glacial Grotto. “Behind the waterfall”.

Getting this Royal Arms is part of the main storyline, so you cannot miss it.

Royal Arms 5: of the Blade of the Mystic

Armiger: Blade of the Mystic
Tomb of the Wise: “was” in the Cauthess, the Disc. Near the Archaean.

Getting this Royal Arms is part of the main storyline, so you cannot miss it.

Royal Arms 6: Star of the Rogue

Armiger: Star of the Rogue
Tomb of the Rogue: The Myrlwood

An optional dungeon that’s in the southwestern part of Vesperpool. It’s very hard to miss since there’s a footpath leading all the way to it. Requires level 35, maybe?

You can get this as soon as you have access to the Vesperpool.

Royal Arms 7: Sword of the Tall

Armiger: Sword of the Tall
Tomb of the Tall: is west of The Fallgrove. The tomb is a fakey since it’s been raided! There’s a note left behind that the weapon is now in Costlemark Tower (East of the Tomb).

You can only enter Costlemark Tower at night and is likely the most difficult of the dungeons with the tombs. Recommended level: 55+, this dungeon is very long so be ready for lots of fights and get ready to use lots of curatives.

TIP: When you get to the ‘maze’ in Costlemark, you need to activate the Northwest tile and follow the map from there. Use the quest marker as your guide.

You can get this at any time past the Vesperpools in the main quest.

Royal Arms 8: Shield of the Just

Armiger: Shield of the Just
Tomb of the Just: Thommel’s Glade.

If you see the map marker Thommel’s Glade (North of Secullam Pass, west of Saxham Outpost), literally just walk there.

It’s unguarded – ripe for the picking! Not even a maze… nothing. A literal walk in the park!

You can get this once you step into Duscae.

Royal Arms 9: Mace of the Fierce

Armiger: Mace of the Fierce
Tomb of the Fierce: The Rock of Ravatogh

Optional and a long walk. It’s not so hard, enemies are around level 30? But this felt somehow tedious to get…

“Where’s The Rock of Ravatogh?” See that westernmost roundabout in your map? That little out of the way road that has a loop? Go to the rest area there and get the local info – the dungeon entrance (volcano…) will be shown to you.

The dungeon itself is pretty straightforward.

You can get this once you step into Cleigne.

Royal Arms 10: Scepter of the Pious

Armiger: Scepter of the Pious
Tomb of the Pious: Malmalam Thicket

This is near impossible to miss. Iris asks for a pitstop here and the quest marker all but gives it away. If you somehow pressed “No, Iris”, the dungeon is still a dead giveaway.

“Where is Malmalam Thicket?” If you have to ask, there’s a parking spot right in it’s name. If you wanna go here before you’re supposed to (I’m pretty sure you can…) It’s south of Hulldagh Pike (a long way south) and a little North of Maidenwater.

You can get this once you step into Cleigne.

Royal Arms 11: Trident of the Oracle

Armiger: Trident of the Oracle
Tomb of the Oracle: Errr…. I don’t know if the tomb exists in the map anywhere…

Getting this Royal Arms is part of the main storyline, so you cannot miss it.

Royal Arms 12: Katana of the Warrior

Armiger: Katana of the Warrior
Tomb of the Warrior: the mines in the desert going to Tenebrea (forgot the name)

Getting this Royal Arms is part of the main storyline, so you cannot miss it.

Royal Arms 13: Sword of the Father

Armiger: Sword of the Father
Tomb of the Father: Errr…. I don’t know if the tomb exists in the map anywhere…

Getting this Royal Arms is part of the main storyline, so you cannot miss it.

Thirteen is a whole lot of boxes…

Well, this is still a work in progress, but I imagine I’ve answered the more important questions you have about the tombs and royal arms in FFXV, given the guides current state.
