Legendary weapon

Disambig icon.png This article is about legendary weapons. For the achievement category, see Legendary Weapons. For the NPC rank, see NPC rank#Legendary.

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.

Legendary weapons are crafted in the Mystic Forge using a precursor weapon and the Gift of the Legendary Weapon associated with the desired end result, plus two other Gifts of Fortune and Mastery shared by other weapons of the same generation. Weapons of the first generation, released at the launch of Guild Wars 2, use Gift of Fortune and Gift of Mastery in their recipes, and second generation weapons, released during updates following Heart of Thorns, use Mystic Tribute and Gift of Maguuma Mastery.

  1. Crafting disciplines required to be trained to at least 400 on the account in order to craft some of the components.
  2. Eternity is a special legendary weapon in that it has neither a precursor weapon nor does it require any legendary gift on its own. Instead, it is constructed by combining two other legendary greatswords, Sunrise and Twilight.

Components[edit]

Legendary weapons require a large variety of different materials and other items to craft, both tradeable and account bound. Specific components depend on the generation of the weapon as well as on the weapon itself.

First generation[edit]

First generation legendary weapons require a precursor weapon, a legendary weapon gift determined by the weapon being crafted, plus a Gift of Fortune and a Gift of Mastery. All three gifts are created in the Mystic Forge by combining other items, as shown by the following table.

It is a good idea to start by making the Gift of Mastery, and then producing Mystic Clovers, because this will also generate materials required for the Gifts of Magic and Might, and potentially the gifts specific to each legendary.

  • Drop from any enemy, chest or WvW loot bag.
  • Combining exotics or rares in the Mystic Forge.4
  • Completing the 3 tiers of Legendary Weapons collections for the given weapon.
  1. This item varies with each legendary weapon.
  2. Also requires you to have characters that have mastered the respective crafting disciplines. The finished Gifts are account bound, which allows you to craft them on different characters.
  3. Chance to get a precursor varies with rarity and level.[1]

Second generation[edit]

Second generation legendary weapons are crafted in the Mystic Forge by combining a precursor weapon, a gift tied to the particular legendary, plus the Gift of Maguuma Mastery and the Mystic Tribute. Many of the components have to be acquired in the Heart of Maguuma, and each precursor weapon is account bound and can only be acquired by completing three collections in the Legendary Weapons category. These collections are unlocked through the Scholar of Maguuma's Secrets mastery, along with a subsequent collection required to get one of the subcomponents for the legendary weapon gift.

Notes[edit]

  • Footprints of a legendary equipped in the main hand will override any footprints of a legendary equipped in the offhand.
  • Legendary weapons cannot be sold to vendors unless transmuted.
  • There will be no underwater weapons in the second generation legendaries. [2]
  • The development of the remaining second generation legendary weapons has been put on hold for an unforeseeable amount of time as of the 25th of March, 2016, due to the necessity of reallocating the team responsible for the weapons to work on "Living World style content" instead. [3]
