Ascended back item

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Ascended back items are back items of GAscended rarity.

All ascended back items come with an infusion slot. A few specific back items can be upgraded in the Mystic Forge to infused versions, adding one additional infusion slot to the back item for a maximum of two.

Unlike other ascended armor components, back items cannot have their stats changed in the Mystic Forge, so care must be taken to select the correct set.

Acquisition methods[edit]

Ascended back items can be obtained in a variety of ways.

Achievements[edit]

Completing certain achievements may reward players with ascended back items.

Crafting[edit]

Many ascended back items can be crafted in the Mystic Forge.

Other ascended back items can be crafted with certain crafting disciplines after learning their recipe from a recipe sheet.

Looting[edit]

Certain raid bosses have a chance to drop ascended back items.

  1. ^ Formerly of Wayfarer and Soldier prefix, transformed into prefix selection after all prefixes including Magic Find were discontinued.
  2. ^ The Bough of Melandru regular back item has an infusion slot even if it's not classified as infused, making Bough of Melandru (Infused) pointless to craft. This is probably a bug.
  3. ^ a b c These back items can be further upgraded to legendary rarity.
  4. ^ With the introduction of Path Of Fire, the LWS3 "All" option did not update to include the new PoF stat combinations Grieving, Marshal, or Harrier.
  5. ^ The selected attributes can be reset with a Bloodstone Capacitor purchased from Scholar Rakka.
  6. ^ The PoF backpacks may not all support the same selectable options. For example, the Sunspear version allows the new Grieving AND Harrier stat options. The Vabbian (Amnoon/Dynastic Reckoning) version reportedly allows Grieving but not Harrier. The third reportedly has neither. This should be confirmed on those pages if possible, but choose carefully in the meantime.
