Appearances[edit | edit source]
The Gae Bolg polearm drops from the Notorious Monster Voivre in the Ifrit's Cauldron, one of the few high-level monsters which spawn passive in the entirety of the game. Though the drop rate is 100% and the spear is very powerful for its level of use, it has an unusually high weapon delay, which makes it inferior to higher-level alternatives because of its slow attack speed.
Once the property of a hero doomed to wade through blood, this well-used weapon almost seems to leap back at attackers of its own accord.
The Gae Bolg is a first-tier spear for Fang that can be bought in Plautus's Weapons Workshop in Chapter 8. It has an improved Counter rate, and a Positive Effect synthesized ability that prolongs positive buffs' effect. Gae Bolg maxes out on level 21 and transforms into Gungnir with a Scarletite. Its maximum Strength is 103 and maximum Magic power 92.
Gae Bolg is the Relic Weapon for dragoons. The Unfinished Gae Bolg is acquired and upgraded to Gae Bolg in the quest A Relic Reborn (Gae Bolg), and through the Zenith, Atma, Animus, Novus, and Nexus levels in the ensuing questchain before being replaced by the Longinus. The much stronger Gae Bolg Ultima can later be purchased in Rhalgr's Reach using tokens received from the Weapon's Refrain (Ultimate).
Gae Bolg Novus and Gae Bolg Nexus's secondary stats are determined by what the player chose to imbue in their Gae Bolg in the process of upgrading it to Gae Bolg Novus, and can be redone by acquiring and imbuing a new Sphere Scroll: Gae Bolg from Hubairtin in Central Thanalan and presenting it to Jalzahn Daemir in the North Shroud.
Gae Bolg is also notably the weapon wielded by Estinien Wyrmblood.

It can be obtained from a chest in the Tower on Hard or Very Hard, and then created for 1,800 gil by using an Adamantite, Abyssian x3, and an Ebonite.

When Amidatelion summons Bahamut to prevent Layle and Keiss from continuing to pursue her, the mighty dragon holds the legendary spear Gae Bolg in his tail. This, however, proves to be Bahamut's undoing because, after the summon destroys the island with his signature Mega Flare, Layle is able to use his gravitokinetic powers to take control of the weapon and drive it straight through Bahamut's torso, defeating him.
The spear also appears alongside its wielder on the "Bahamut Strikes" emblem for Layle's coat.
A legendary spear wielded by the warrior of old, Cú Chulainn. The winged blades extending from both sides dig onto enemies, rending them apart from the inside. Riding his trusted steed Sainglend into battle, Cú Chulainn boasts countless victories over myriad foes.
