— In-game description

Nevermore is a legendary staff crafted in the Mystic Forge, through various materials and tasks tied to the Heart of Thorns expansion.

Acquisition[edit]

Graphics[edit]

Nevermore is a rune-inscribed raven staff. While stowed, three glowing cyan orbs float among the branches of the staff; and an animated raven is perched on the center branch. While drawn, the cyan orbs and raven are replaced by a spirit raven that encompasses the staff.

Aura
  • The arm wielding Nevermore is covered in black feathers.
  • While drawn, ravens occasionally fly above the user's head.
Draw/Stow effects
  • When drawn, the perched raven flies upwards and the three glowing orbs spiral towards it. On impact, the raven dissipates in a burst of cyan feathers, and forms the spirit raven. In addition, a conspiracy of ravens fly above the user and cawing is heard.
  • When stowed, the raven re-materializes and perches on the staff, and cawing is heard.
Footfalls
  • The user leaves behind wisps of cyan feathers.
Skill effects
  • Default class weapon trails are replaced with a cyan mist and feathers.
  • Default projectiles are replaced with spirit ravens that transform into glowing spheres mid-flight. Additionally, up to three ravens will fly out of the sky and trail the projectile.
  • Critical hit attacks will spawn faint spirit ravens on the attacked enemy that fly away quickly.

Trivia[edit]

  • The staff is named for Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven", which frequently repeats the word "nevermore."[1]
  • The staff's skin was datamined from a test server in December 2013 and was referred to by the community as the "Raven Staff" until it was revealed to be the legendary weapon Nevermore in October 2015.
  • After its release, more friendly ravens appeared all over Tyria: for example, there's now one on the Marriner's Plaque that was once the statue of Cobiah Marriner.
  • There was a Guild Wars Prophecies Game of the Year bonus item called the Nevermore Flatbow.
