Auric weapons are a set of level 80 FExotic weapons introduced in Heart of Thorns, which follow the visual theme of the Exalted. Acquiring these weapons is part of the Auric Weapons collection achievement, which is a prerequisite for the Luminate's Backplate сollection.

Acquisition[edit]

  • You get a choice of one of three weapons depending on profession for completing the story mission City of Hope; available choices are listed here. This mission can be repeated on different characters to acquire more weapons.
    • To minimize the cost of acquiring these weapons, the ideal weapon choice from this mission, assuming 1 character of each profession, is:
      • Guardian tango icon 20px.png: Hammer, or Mace if Warrior has already chosen Hammer
      • Revenant tango icon 20px.png: Staff, or Sword if Elementalist or Necromancer has already chosen Staff 1
      • Warrior tango icon 20px.png: Hammer, or Mace if Guardian has already chosen Hammer
      • Engineer tango icon 20px.png: Rifle
      • Ranger tango icon 20px.png: Longbow
      • Thief tango icon 20px.png: Short Bow

Notes[edit]

  • All Auric weapons have a default damage type of Choking. This is inherent to the weapon itself, and not its skin.
