The Mystic Forge is a crafting station with access points in various locations. Imprisoned inside is the djinn Zommoros who hails from Elona. His attendant, Miyani, found next to the Mystic Forge in Lion's Arch, provides information about Zommoros and sells recipes and items used in the forge.

The Mystic Forge has wide variety of recipes, but is used primarily for upgrading equipment, promoting crafting materials, obtaining precursor weapons, and crafting legendary weapons. It has an important function in the game economy as a gold sink.

Research on Mystic Forge recipes can be found here.

Locations[edit]

Miyani is only found at the Lion's Arch location. All other locations have a Mystic Forge Attendant who offers the same services.

Item combination[edit]

The Mystic Forge can be used to combine four items of equipment into one item of equal or higher quality. The mechanics of item combination depends on what kind of items are being combined.

Equipment[edit]

Four pieces of equipment of the same quality can be combined in the forge. The input can be weapons, armor, trinkets, or any combination of thereof. The output will be as specific as the input is. For example, if only weapons are used as the input, the output is guaranteed to be a weapon. Likewise, if only medium helmets are used, the output is guaranteed to be a medium helmet. In addition, the output equipment will be 3-12 levels higher than the average of the levels of the four piece of input equipment. There is also a roughly 20% chance of receiving a higher quality item. This has a chance of producing soul-bound equipment sold by Karma Merchants.

Universal upgrades[edit]

Any four universal upgrades of the same rarity can be combined in the Mystic Forge, even if they are of different tiers. The average of the tiers is considered when deciding the output, for example three tier 3 items and one tier 2 item will most likely return a tier 3 item. When combined the mystic forge will return upgrades of the same tier, with a 20% chance of returning upgrades of the next higher tier. Regardless of the input, the chance of receiving a medal or a gemstone is roughly equal. The chance of receiving a doubloon with any type of input is approximately 5%.

Tier Gemstones Medals Doubloons
1 Pebbles Copper Doubloon
2 Nuggets Marks Silver Doubloon
3 Lumps Talismans Gold Doubloon
4 Shards Seals Platinum Doubloon
5 Crystals Medallions
6 Orbs Crests

Sigils and runes[edit]

The Mystic Forge will combine four runes or four sigils, but not a mixture of runes and sigils. They must also be the same rarity, which means they must be all minor or all major. Combining runes has a chance of returning account bound runes of the types that are found in Dungeons, for example, Rune of the Monk. Superior runes and sigils cannot be combined in the mystic forge at all, but are used in some specific recipes, such as gifts.

Materials[edit]

Primary article: /Material Promotion

The mystic forge can be used to promote crafting materials to a higher tier using ingredients depending on the target tier.

Common crafting materials[edit]

Common crafting materials are promoted using piles of dust and Philosopher's Stones. The promotion yields 40 to 200 for tiers 2–5 and 10 to 40 for tier 6. Due to irregularities in the tier structure for ores and ingots, the recipe will vary from the generic formula and the recipe on the main article should be inspected before attempting. The generic formulas are as follows:

State Result Ingredients
Raw Wool Scrap.png Tier n materials Jute Scrap.png 250 x tier n-1 materials Wool Scrap.png 1 x tier n material Pile of Shimmering Dust.png 5 x tier n dust Philosopher's Stone.png n-1 x philosopher's stones

Fine crafting materials[edit]

Fine crafting materials are promoted using piles of dust and Philosopher's Stones. The promotion yields 7 to 40 for tiers 2–5 and 5 to 12 for tier 6. The generic formula is as follows:

Result Ingredients
Small Claw.png Tier n materials Tiny Claw.png 50 x tier n-1 materials Small Claw.png 1 x tier n material Pile of Shimmering Dust.png 5 x tier n dust Philosopher's Stone.png n-1 x philosopher's stones

Piles of dust[edit]

Piles of dust are promoted using crystals and Philosopher's Stones. The promotion yields 40 to 200 for tiers 2–5 and 6 to 40 for tier 6. The generic formula is as follows:

Result Ingredients
Pile of Shimmering Dust.png Tier n dust Pile of Glittering Dust.png 250 x tier n-1 dust Pile of Shimmering Dust.png 1 x tier n dust Crystal.png n-1 x crystals Philosopher's Stone.png n-1 x philosopher's stones

Rare crafting materials[edit]

Rare crafting materials are promoted using two different recipes. The first combines two of a lower tier into one of a higher tier. The second combines multiple of a lower tier into half the amount of a higher tier. The generic recipes are as follows:

Recipe Result Ingredients
Two to One Charged Fragment.png Tier n material Charged Sliver.png 2 x tier n-1 materials Pile of Radiant Dust.png 1 x tier n+1 dust Bottle of Elonian Wine.png 1 x Bottle of Elonian Wine Crystal.png 1 x Crystal
Multiple Charged Fragment.png 6-n Tier n materials Charged Sliver.png 12-2n x tier n-1 materials Pile of Radiant Dust.png 1 x tier n+1 dust Mystic Binding Agent.png 1 x Mystic Binding Agent Crystal.png 1 x Crystal

Ascended crafting materials[edit]

Unlike other crafting materials, GAscended materials from the Fractals of the Mists can be both promoted and demoted.

Mystic Clovers[edit]

Mystic Clovers are a component of the Gift of Fortune, which is required to craft a legendary weapon. Both recipes have a 33% chance to yield Mystic Clovers, otherwise they will yield tier 6 materials and other items.

  • The amount of ingredients required for recipe sheets depends on the rating of the item. For example, for a chef rating 200 recipe sheet you need 9 Bottles of Elonian Wine, 12 Crystals and 26 Mystic Coins.
  • Boxes/satchels of armor grant the entire set of armor. They cost the same amount of materials to create as crafting the pieces individually would.
  • Trays/feasts of food are items that, when placed in the world, grant a food buff to all who interact with them. They cost 10 pieces of the food to craft.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Mystic Forge (and its associated Mystic Plaza point of interest) was originally located in the center of Trader's Forum in Lion's Arch.
  • A common nickname for the forge is "Mystic Toilet," from the phrase "flushing one's money down the toilet" — the forge's random results quite often produce an item of lesser value than the input items, thus making players feel like they have wasted their money.
