Ramuh is a primal that’s usually brought forth by the sylphs. Your first battle with Ramuh is during the level 50 trial “The Striking Tree (Hard)”, which occurs after the events of A Realm Reborn.

“The Striking Tree (Extreme)” is a more difficult version of your fight with Ramuh. This is available later on through a quest called “Judgment Bolts and Lightning”.

This quest is obtained from Scarlet in New Gridania (X:9.9, Y:11.4). It becomes available after completing the level 50 Main Scenario Quest “Brave New Companions”.

Once you’ve completed the Main Scenario Quest “Brave New Companions”, look for Scarlet in New Gridania. She can be found just outside the Twin Adder headquarters at (X:9.9, Y:11.4).

The lieutenant will inform you that there is word of Ramuh being summoned once again.

She will then send you to Little Solace to speak with Frixio, the sylph elder.

The quickest way to Little Solace would be to teleport to the Hawthorne Hut aetheryte and travel East. When you get there, speak with Frixio’s attendant Dellexia, who can be found at (X:21.3, Y:26.8).

Frixio explains that Ramuh does in fact walk the Twelveswood once more thanks to another faction of sylphs.

And though he might not be as aggressive as the other primals, his mere presence poses a threat to the area’s aether.

The next step in the quest is to re-attune to the aetheryte in the Sylphlands, East Shroud (X:25.4, Y:17.0).

After this is done, you will be able to confront the Lord of Levin once more in The Striking Tree (Extreme).

These are upgraded versions of the weapons obtained from this trial such as the Mighty Thunderbolt and High Adjudicator’s staff.

These weapons are crafted and the materials can be gathered by desynthesizing the arms looted from the Striking Tree (Extreme).

The upgraded weapons are item level 110 and still quite popular on the market boards since they are used as glams.
