Ascended weapons are a series of weapon sets consisting of ascended quality weapons. Each weapon set is named after a character from Tyria's lore and contains weapons with a specific attribute combination.


Ascended weapons can be salvaged using Ascended Salvage Tools and Ascended Salvage Kits.

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 drop from Fractals of the Mists, Tequatl the Sunless, exotic champion loot bags, reward chests of Guild Missions and give any weapon type with a given prefix. 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]

The prefix attributes on ascended weapons can be changed by combining the weapon in the Mystic Forge with an Orichalcum Imbued Inscription of the desired prefix. Any upgrades in the weapon, such as sigils and infusions, will be lost during the forging.
