From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Refinement is the process of transforming crafting materials from a basic state into materials that can be used to create weapon and armor components. The refinement process takes place at the crafting stations appropriate to the item. Recipes for refinements unlocks automatically as you progress through crafting levels. More information, including specific uses and variations, can be found on each item's page. It's possible to refine basic materials at a rate of roughly 11.000 refinements per hour

Refinements[edit]
