Weapon sets by attribute[edit]

Different colors of the ascended Greatswords

There are 29 ascended weapon sets, each set having a different attribute prefix. All sets share the same base weapon models, but are colored differently based on the primary attribute of the prefix. The exception to this are Weapons of the Sunless, which have a unique color and share stats with another set.

Ascended weapons are crafted using ascended materials and a complex process. Players will need to purchase a Recipe: Ascended Inscription and use it to acquire the recipe for the prefix they want. Players also need to purchase an ascended weapon recipe for the appropriate weapon type; a greatsword requires a Recipe: Ascended Greatsword for example. The prefix of the weapon recipe and the inscription recipe have to match. The components for the weapons require the equivalent of tier 7 crafting materials for each crafting profession.

Ascended chests[edit]

Primary article: Ascended chest

Ascended chests of a given prefix drop from Fractals of the Mists, Tequatl the Sunless, exotic champion loot bags, and reward chests of Guild Missions. They can then be opened for any weapon type. The prefix of the chest corresponds to the prefix for the ascended weapon, for example Beigarth's Weapon Chest contains Beigarth's "Knight" weapons.

Attribute change[edit]

It is possible to obtain ascended weapons with different attributes by combining any ascended weapon in the Mystic Forge with an Orichalcum Imbued Inscription of the desired prefix. As with any other Mystic Forge recipe, this process creates a new ascended weapon with an Antique weapon skin by destroying the original weapon and any upgrades such as sigils and infusions that may have been slotted on it.
