Legendary weapons are a set of high end weapons that have unique appearances. They have the same stats as ascended weapons, however they also have functionality to allow their inherent stat combo to be changed to any other stat combo when out of combat. They are crafted in the Mystic Forge. Each legendary weapon requires four components: a specific exotic precursor weapon, a Gift of Fortune, a Gift of Mastery and a final gift specific to the desired legendary weapon.
It is a good idea to start by making the Gift of Mastery, then producing Mystic Clovers, as this will also generate materials required for the Gifts of Magic and Might, and potentially the gifts specific to each Legendary. All legendary weapons, excluding Eternity, will require the following components:
|Required item||Primary ingredients||Component materials|
|Gift of Mastery||Bloodstone Shard|
|Obsidian Shard x250|
|Gift of Exploration|
|Gift of Battle||
|Gift of Fortune||Glob of Ectoplasm x250|
|Mystic Clover x77|
|Gift of Magic|
|Gift of Might|
|Legendary weapon Gift2||Icy Runestones x100||
|Superior Sigil specific to the Legendary|
|Specific Gift acquired through crafting3||
