Will all upgrade components from all items be lost?

- Yes, any weapon/armor/trinket that you use in the mystic forge for any recipe is destroyed (along with its upgrade components), and an entirely new item is generated. This also applies to infused and attuned rings even though the product seems to be the same item. Toraen - talk 17:31, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
Might want to add that there is a Bug in the Mystic forge in which the Recipe isn't recognized. For Example: https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/4y1bgs/did_they_do_something_do_blade_shard_promotion/

It seems general consensus that the forge gives output 5+ levels higher than input, but the page reads 3. Looking back through the edit history, it seems that this changed occurred with this revision: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/index.php?title=Mystic_Forge&oldid=863196 However, this attempt was made with exotics which are known to not abide by the rules. May I correct the level promotion total?
