Equipment acquisition by stats

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Disambig icon.png This article is about acquiring gear with specific prefixes or rarity. For naming conventions used in the game, see item nomenclature.

This article lists various methods of acquiring equipment, organized by the game-mechanical benefits the equipment provides. Because this can change with each release, the page will sometimes be be out of date compared to the most recent game updates.

The bonuses granted by equipment fall into certain patterns. The size of bonuses are determined by an item's type, required level, and quality, while the precise effects are determined by an item's prefix and suffix. Although some items have specific rather than generic names, these will also follow the general patterns below.

Contents

[edit] Equipment categories

[edit] Ascended equipment

Primary article: Ascended equipment

The highest bonuses are granted by equipment of GAscended quality. All equipment that exists at this tier requires level 80.

Instead of an ordinary upgrade slot, ascended equipment has the stats that would normally be granted by an upgrade component "built in" to the basic item and instead has an infusion slot. The stats for the items "prefix" and "suffix" (upgrade component) follow the normal triple attribute distributions, but do not necessarily affect the same three attributes, making the acquisition of specific stat combinations both more limited and more complicated. Due to their relative scarcity and complexity, these items are covered on a separate page.

[edit] Level 80 exotic equipment

Exotic equipment with a level requirement of 80 offers the highest possible stats and the greatest variety of choices for most equipment slots. The table below shows the available items types for each attribute combination and their general method of acquisition; see Acquisition Methods for more details on each method.

Note that items acquired by crafting, the mystic forge, or as loot are generally not bound until equipped, and therefore can also be purchased from other players on the Trading Post. Items acquired through other methods are usually bound when acquired, and therefore cannot be traded with other players.

  1. ^ Though the exotic version of the Prototype Fractal Capacitor.png Prototype Fractal Capacitors are level 80 exotic back items, they are not included in this table because they lack an upgrade slot, making them weaker than a lower-quality back item with an exotic jewel.
  2. ^ Gives a small bonus to power, precision, toughness, vitality, condition damage, healing power, and ferocity.

[edit] Sigils

Primary article: Sigils

Sigils are specialized upgrade components that can only be placed in weapons. They do not follow the normal triple attribute distributions, but instead offer a variety of more specialized effects, generally related to attacking or killing. Due to their unique nature, they are covered on their own page; refer to pages on individual sigils for acquisition instructions.

The best known sigils are those whose names begin with "Superior", which are FExotic quality and level requirement of 60.

[edit] Runes

Primary article: Runes

Runes are specialized upgrade components that can only be placed in armor. They do not follow the normal triple attribute distributions, but instead offer variable benefits depending on the number of runes of a particular type currently equipped, generally with attribute increases for the odd runes and more unusual effects for the even runes. Due to their unique nature, they are covered on their own page; refer to pages on individual runes for acquisition instructions.

The best known runes are those whose names begin with "Superior", which are FExotic quality and level requirement of 60.

[edit] Lower-Quality Back items

Primary article: Back item

For some attribute combinations, neither ascended nor exotic back items exist, but other high-level options are available:

Major Minor Prefix Best Back Item Quality Source
Precision Power Condition Damage Rampager's Tribal Shield.png Tribal Shield DMasterwork Personal Story
Vitality Condition Damage Healing Power Shaman's Risen Spineguard.png Risen Spineguard ERare Loot (Arah, Fractals)
Healing Power Power Toughness Cleric's Penetrating Krytan Shield.png Clerics Spineguard of the Cleric DMasterwork Personal Story

[edit] Breathing apparatuses

Primary article: Breathing apparatus

A breathing apparatus is a special piece of armor that replaces the helmet while underwater. Very few are available and none are better than DMasterwork quality excluding rare drops from Tequatl the Sunless.

[edit] Universal upgrade components

Universal upgrade components are similar to jewels and follow the usual triple attribute distributions, but can be placed into any type of equipment with an upgrade slot (whereas jewels can only be placed in trinkets). However, there are no FExotic universal upgrades; the best options are only ERare gemstones and crests and offer lower bonuses than exotic jewels.

Many players don't use universal upgrades, instead filling their upgrade slots with the more specific sigils, runes, and jewels. However, universal upgrades still offer some options that cannot be replicated by other means.

Below is a table for level 80 ERare upgrade components. Tables for all upgrade components can be found here.

  1. ^ Some insignias and inscriptions are craftable and require an activator to produce. Other insignias and inscriptions cannot be crafted but have a chance to be salvaged from equipment with the same attribute bonus, allowing players to craft other items with those attributes.

[edit] Dungeon recipes

There are also several jeweler recipes that require a dungeon offering as a crafting ingredient, replacing the gemstone or jewel in the standard recipes. These recipes must be learned from a recipe sheet that only drops in the corresponding dungeon.

Most of these recipes provide attribute combinations that are otherwise unavailable from jeweler recipes. The only exception is Carrion, which is available as Chrysocola jewelry.
