Auric weapons are a set of level 80 Exotic 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 icon small.png Hammer, or Mace if Warrior has already chosen Hammer
      • Revenant icon small.png Staff, or Sword if Elementalist or Necromancer has already chosen Staff 1
      • Warrior icon small.png Hammer, or Mace if Guardian has already chosen Hammer
      • Engineer icon small.png Rifle
      • Ranger icon small.png Longbow
      • Thief icon small.png Short Bow
      • Elementalist icon small.png Staff, or Scepter if Revenant or Necromancer has already chosen Staff 1
      • Mesmer icon small.png Greatsword
      • Necromancer icon small.png Staff, or Axe if Revenant or Elementalist has already chosen Staff 1
    • 1: Between Revenant, Elementalist, and Necromancer, one can get Staff and 2 out of 3 of Sword, Scepter, and Axe, depending on player preference.

Notes[edit]

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