Exotic weapons can be dropped from the following sources.

Mystic Forge[edit]

Certain exotic weapons can be crafted using certain Mystic Forge recipes.

Players can also toss in four Rare or Exotic weapons into the Mystic Forge to obtain a random Exotic weapon. The levels of the weapons must average 60 or higher.

  • There is an approximate 20% chance of obtaining an exotic when using four rare weapons.
    • Using four exotic weapons will always return an exotic.
  • Tossing in four of the same type of weapon will result in the same type of weapon.
    • Tossing in a mixture of weapons will result in a random weapon in return (i.e. 3 swords + 1 staff = 1 random weapon)
  • Using this method has a very low chance of receiving a precursor weapon.
  • You cannot receive the weapons that require special Mystic Forge recipes.

Trading Post[edit]

Exotic weapons can be purchased off the Trading Post


There are many vendors that can sell Exotic weapons.
