Aetherized weapons are a rare weapon set that was originally only available during Cutthroat Politics. Players could rarely obtain these weapons by succeeding in the Candidate Trials. A corresponding set of skin consumables was also available for purchase with Black Lion Claim Tickets.
With the release of Heart of Thorns the sets were reintroduced and have different acquisition methods.
- Rare drop from Cracked Fractal Encryptions.
- Mystic Forge: chance when combining four rare or exotic pieces of equipment with an average level of 75 or higher, e.g. one L60 weapon + three L80 weapons or three L75 pieces of armor and a L75 weapon.
All weapons are rare and level 80, with the Carrion attribute set.
- Unlocking all 19 Aetherized weapon skins awards the Aetherized Weapon Collection achievement.
