Loot containers[edit]

Versions that drop as loot appear to be containers that function like ascended recipes, i.e. when you open it you can select from a list. [1]

The containers are identifiable by the following description:

A mysteriously light and well-balanced weapon that seems malleable to your wishes. Double-click to choose what form it should take.

— Ineffable container description

Each container has multiple entries in the API with varying rarities, but all of them have level 0. This basically means that I have next to no data on these items.

The received weapons, however, show up just fine. They all have a required level 3 levels lower than the stats. They can have the following prefixes - fine versions have single-attribute prefixes, masterwork and rare have dual-attribute, and exotic have triple. The double and triple prefixes are new and exclusive to these weapons.

Basic and exotic skins are available in all of the relevant prefixes (except Healing at level 3). Masterwork and rare skins (except Orrian) are only available in 2 of the dual-attribute prefixes, not all 3.

Forsaken 3.45 3.88 4.05

The statistics of discovered variants show a heavy preference for the prefixes that include Power (Mighty, Vagabond, Forsaken) over others.

Handcrafted weapons[edit]

Crafted versions use "Ineffable" inscriptions/insignia, so maybe we should use "Ineffable weapons/armor" for the whole shebang. The output items are actual weapons with selectable stats, and they are almost 100% represented in the API already.

The crafted versions use the Basic, Glyphic, Steam, Flame, Shiverpeak, and Norn skin sets. Each level uses a specific skin set, and some of the sets repeat at multiple levels.

All Handcrafted weapons are exotic and have a required level that is 6 levels below their stats. Verified using weapon strength of the level 60/65/68 weapons, level 51 looks like it would match level 57 (but we don't know "real" stats for 57), so it makes sense that they all go this way.

Prefixes available for selection are: Apothecary / Assassin / Berserker / Carrion / Cleric / Knight / Rampager / Valkyrie
