Cultural weapon

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Cultural weapons are racially themed weapons available to characters and can be found in the capital city of the corresponding race. A character can use all cultural weapons, regardless of race. Each playable race has 3 tiers of weapons.

Each race's cultural weapons give a bonus to up to three attributes, which vary between tiers. The top attribute listed is the major attribute boost, the others are minor boosts.

Weapons with the same skin as Tier 1 cultural weapons can be found as Fine or Masterwork drops and purchased from some karma vendors in that race's area. Tier 2 weapon skins are found on Rare drops. Cultural Weaponsmiths are the only way to normally acquire Tier 3 skins, though personal story rewards occasionally include weapons that share the skin for that race.
