Legendary back item
Legendary back items are back items of Legendary rarity. There are currently three legendary back pieces: Ad Infinitum, The Ascension and Warbringer. The Ascension is obtained via Player Versus Player activities, whereas Ad Infinitum is obtained by doing various fractals and purchasing items with Fractal Relics from the Mistlock Observatory merchants. Warbringer was added June 6th 2017, and is obtained through the World Versus World progression system added in the same update. Similar to other legendary equipment the Attribute combinations of legendary back pieces can be freely changed at any time the player is out of combat. Additionally legendary back pieces naturally carry two infusion slots and therefore don't need to be infused. All of these items are created through a mixture of crafting, finding, collecting and purchasing. Creation of the end item is a multi-step process which is completed using the Mystic Forge. While not time-gated, creating any of these items is a lengthy, time-consuming project. Once started, needed items can be obtained by ANY character on the account, and all of the created items are "account-based".
Since the addition of the Legendary Armory on July 13, 2021, legendary back items can be transmuted freely, no longer consuming transmutation charges, and equipped on all level 80 characters simultaneously.
