The Mystic Forge, in Lion's Arch
Mystic Forge UI

The Mystic Forge is a crafting station located in the heart of the Lion's Arch Mystic Plaza near the Trader's Forum waypoint, within the Heart of the Mists, and within each Borderlands' garrison and Stonemist Castle in World versus World. It can also be accessed with Mystic Forge Conduits and Mystic Forge Nodes from anywhere in the world.

This strange object holds the imprisoned djinn Zommoros, who hails from distant Elona. If you offer him the proper gifts, he will create new items for you. Talk to Miyani, located next to the forge, to learn more about Zommoros and the operation of the forge. She sells mystic recipes for coin and mystic items for skill points that are used in crafting items specific to the forge.

The mystic forge has various uses, ranging from transmuting weapons to higher level versions to the crafting of legendary weapons. It plays an important function in moderating the economy - when lower ranked items become too cheap, the expected returns encourages the consumption of common items to produce rarer ones.

Crafting[edit]

The mystic forge is a special crafting station that can be used by all characters. Recipes in the mystic forge always require four ingredients. Recipes can be discovered in a similar fashion to crafting professions, but there is no tab to record them. Generic recipes will show all other equipment of the same rarity as valid in terms of the discovery.

Generic recipes typically require four pieces of equipment of the same rarity and will create a random piece of equipment of that rarity whose level is 5-12 levels higher with a chance that the item will be promoted in rarity.[1]. If four pieces of equipment of the same type and rarity are used, the equipment received will be of the same type in addition to normal function. This serves as a way to obtain high level versions of a certain piece of equipment. The forge can also be used to transmute crafting materials, dyes, and blueprints among other items.

Recipes unique to the mystic forge are used to create specific items such as mystic or legendary weapons. These items often require mystic coins, high level items, and large resources.

Materials[edit]

Common Crafting Material Promotion[edit]

Common crafting materials can be promoted to higher tier materials using a formula similar to the following example:

General formula for Common Crafting Material promotion:

Materials created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Skill.png ?x tier A+1 common materials 250 x tier A materials 1 x desired tier A+1 material
of the same type
5x tier A+1 dusts A Philosopher's Stones


  • The number of materials you get out varies with the tier of materials in the process, but the number of materials put in (250) remains constant.
  • Upgrading from tier 5 to tier 6 has a lower yield than all other tiers.
  • Upgraded common materials can only be advanced one crafting tier at a time. Copper can only become Iron, Wool can only become Cotton, etc.
  • The quality of "Pile of X Dust" required for the recipe is equal to the material being produced.
  • The number of Philosopher's Stones needed is equal to the tier of the material being produced minus 1. Creating a tier 4 material (Linen, Rugged Leather, etc.) would require 3 stones.

Exceptions:

  • Silver cannot be created from Copper.
  • Gold cannot be created from Iron.
  • Platinum can be created from both Iron and Gold, with Gold being considered a higher tier metal for the promotion formula.

Fine Crafting Material Promotion[edit]

General formula for Fine Crafting Material promotion:

Materials created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Skill.png ?x tier B+1 fine materials 50 x tier B materials 1 x desired tier B+1 material
of the same type
5x tier B+1 dusts B Philosopher's Stones
  • Upgraded fine materials can only be advanced one tier at a time.
  • Upgrading from tier 5 to tier 6 has a lower yield than all other tiers (5 - 12 materials gained).
  • The quality of "Pile of X Dust" required for the recipe is equal to the fine material being produced.
  • The amount of Philosopher's Stones needed is equal to the tier of the material being produced minus 1. Creating a tier 4 fine material (Thick Blood, Sharp Fang, etc.) would require 3 stones.

Dust Promotion[edit]

Piles of dust can be promoted to higher tier dust using a formula similar to the following example:

General formula for dust promotion:

Materials created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Skill.png ?x tier C+1 dusts 250 x tier C dusts 1 x desired tier C+1 dust C Crystals C Philosopher's Stones
  • Dust can only be upgraded one tier at a time.
  • Upgrading from tier 5 to tier 6 yields a lower result than other tiers.
  • Tier 5 > 6 Stats after upgrading 100 times: Average 21, Min 10, Max 39.

Rare Crafting Material Promotion[edit]

  • Master's Salvage Kit must have all 25 uses left.

Mystic Clovers[edit]

Mystic Clovers are used in the creation of the Gift of Fortune, which is required to create all legendary weapons. The following formula is used to randomly acquire the Clovers, ~1/3 of the time.

Materials created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
1x Mystic Clover.png Mystic Clover 1x  Obsidian Shard.png Obsidian Shard 1 x  Glob of Ectoplasm.png Glob of Ectoplasm 1x Mystic Coin.png Mystic Coin 1x  Philosopher's Stone.png Philosopher's Stone

  • The Gift of Fortune requires 77 Mystic Clovers.
  • Both recipes pull from the same pool of random results, but the 10-Clover recipe costs and yields ten times more.

Equipment[edit]

Certain equipment can only be made at the mystic forge:

Crest and Jewel Creation[edit]

Crests and jewels can be created by combining four equal tier jewels.

  • Jewels must be of the same tier to work.
  • Generates a seal or gem depending on the tier of gem used in the creation.
  • Higher tiered gems result in greater upgrade component levels.

Armor Box / Satchel Recipes[edit]

Recipes for full armor sets can be created from a crafted chest piece. They will allow you to craft armor boxes, which contain every piece of an armor set. The following formula does not give you the full armor set, only the recipe to make it.

The amount of Wine, Crystals, and Coins depends on the quality of item placed in the forge.

Example:

Into Forge: - 20 Crystal Shards - 5 Bottles of Elonian Wine - 50 Mystic Coins - 1 Beserker's Exalted Coat (Exotic)

Result: Recipe: Satchel of Berserker's Exalted Armor (Exotic)

Recipe Cost: 6 Beserker's Intricate Gossamer Insignias, 18 Bolts of Gossamer, 10 Spools of Gossamer Thread, 6 Cured Hardened Leather Squares


Other Items[edit]

There are many other item types that don't follow a specific pattern. Please see Other Items for details. Legendary weapons are also crafted with the mystic forge.

Consumables[edit]

Mystic Chests[edit]

This recipe was in effect for a short period of time and is no longer valid.


Food trays and food feasts[edit]

You can also create recipes for trays and feasts of food.

  • The amount of materials needed to create the tray recipes depends on the tier of the food item.
  • Food items must be Initiate or greater to be considered an ingredient in the Mystic Forge.
  • General recipe is inconsistent with lower levels.


PvP items[edit]

When PvP rewards are salvaged using a PvP Salvage Kit, they are turned into PvP crafting materials, such as arcane powders, arcane crystals and tokens. The tokens all have different ranks (i.e. rabbit, deer, tournament, etc.) and generally the higher the token's rank, the more imposing the item forged.

To create an item you need an item token (available from a glory vendor), a rank token (Rabbit, Deer, etc.), an arcane token (crystal, orb, sliver, etc.) and some arcane powders. The combination of rank token and arcane token determines the rarity of the item.

Notes[edit]

  • Research into valid recipes and their results can be found at "Mystic Forge/Research".
  • There is roughly a 20% chance to create a random higher rarity dye, rune or mini-pet by respectively combining four dyes, runes, sigils, or mini-pets.
  • The forge will accept more than one of the same item if you split the stack.
On very rare occasions, players have reported receiving nothing from the mystic forge.
