Tenebrous weapons are a set of crafted Exotic weapons with selectable prefixes introduced with the Heart of Thorns release. They are associated with the Gilded Hollow Guild Hall.


Recipes to craft Tenebrous weapons are taught by Chiaroscuro <weapon> recipe sheets, for example Recipe: Chiaroscuro Greatswords, which are available from the Guild Weaponsmith in any Guild Hall once the Guild Weaponsmith 2 upgrade has been completed at guild level 40. Each recipe sheet teaches the recipe for both the Tenebrous weapon and the corresponding Shimmering weapon. Each one costs:

Each recipe requires level 450 in either Weaponsmith tango icon 20px.png Weaponsmith, Huntsman tango icon 20px.png Huntsman, or Artificer tango icon 20px.png Artificer depending on the weapon type.

Each Tenebrous weapon requires the following materials for crafting:

The Guild weapon needed for crafting is soulbound, so make sure you buy it on the character you want to craft the Tenebrous weapon on.
