With the 2014 update there are only 2 ways to get a 140 weapon
(you can get 120 weapons made by players but there is no way to upgrade them anymore)
(Though, you may be able to do this quest with another character, then trade it, because the weapons are bound after being equipped)
But you Must be level 100 to start to receive these quests.
The quests seem to be granted on a level basis.
A level 108 character may see only 3 quests, and level 122 may see 4 quests (see discussion thread)
other levels and numbers are not known.
But most likely you need to be level 140 to receive/see the last quest for the free weapon.
This is one way to get a 140 weapon...
The other is to do the beginner storyline.
To get the 140 weapon you ONLY have to do the last quest;
9) Treasure Finder
Make sure you have at least 38,400,000 coin and 320 map pieces of the same type (for 4 attempts at a lvl 5 map)
Accept all the quests (or at least the land map quests), then attempt the level 5 land map first.
This way any "failures" will count for the other quests.
Once you get the level 5 map, then try for the level 4 if you don't already have one...
then the level 3... then level 2...
Then do the same for the open sea maps
Start with compounding a level 4, then 3, then 2...
chances are you will get plenty of level 1 maps.
*** so far for me personally... I got the level 5 map on the first attempt, but I have tried 4 x level 4 attempts and have only gotten 3x level 1 maps and 1x level 3 map.
