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. Miyani provides information to learn more about Zommoros and the operation of the forge. She can be found next to the forge in Lion's Arch. 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. The forge also plays a role in infused equipment. It plays an important function in economy by providing a goldsink and removing excess quantities of low level items. The Mystic Forge Node was an item temporarily introduced to remove an influx of common crafting materials present in the Trading Post. The forge is the most common method to obtain precursor weapons, as they can only be obtained otherwise as a very rare drop from enemies or chests. This provides a demand for weapons used in the generic recipe to obtain precursor weapons, along with other exotic weapons. In turn, these weapons can be obtained from drops or by crafting. For the crafted weapons, they all require Orichalcum Ores and Ancient Wood Logs as well as tier 6 crafting materials. Like weapons, low level crafting materials can be refined into high level materials.

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 than the average level of the inputs, 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.

The mystic forge is a source for many of the unique and high level weapons in the game, such as mystic and legendary weapons. These items often require mystic coins, high level items, and large resources.

Materials[edit]

Crafting material promotion[edit]

Common, fine and rare crafting materials can be promoted to higher tier materials using recipes that follow these formulas:

Materials created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Skill.png ? tier X common materials 250 tier X-1 materials
of the same type
1 desired tier X material 5 tier X dusts X-1 Philosopher's Stones
e.g. ? Silk Scraps (tier 5) 250 Linen Scraps 1 Silk Scrap 5 Piles of Incandescent Dust 4 Philosopher's Stones
Skill.png ? tier X fine materials 50 tier X-1 materials
of the same type
1 desired tier X material 5 tier X dusts X-1 Philosopher's Stones
e.g. ? Venom Sacs (tier 3) 50 Small Venom Sacs 1 Venom Sac 5 Piles of Radiant Dust 2 Philosopher's Stones
Skill.png ? tier X dusts 250 tier X-1 dusts 1 tier X dust X-1 Crystals X-1 Philosopher's Stones
e.g. ? Piles of Luminous Dust (tier 4) 250 Piles of Radiant Dust 1 Pile of Luminous Dust 3 Crystals 3 Philosopher's Stones
Skill.png 1 tier X rare material 2 tier X-1 materials
of the same type
1 Bottle of Elonian Wine 1 Crystal 1 tier X+1 dust
e.g. 1 Charged Lodestone (tier 5) 2 Charged Cores 1 Bottle of Elonian Wine 1 Crystal 1 Pile of Crystalline Dust
Skill.png 6-X tier X rare materials 12-2X tier X-1 materials
of the same type
1 Mystic Binding Agent 1 Crystal 1 tier X+1 dust
e.g. 4 Molten Fragments (tier 2) 8 Molten Slivers 1 Mystic Binding Agent 1 Crystal 1 Pile of Radiant Dust
  • Upgrading common or fine materials from tier 5 to tier 6 has a lower yield than all other tiers.
  • Silver cannot be created from Copper.
  • Gold cannot be created from Iron.
  • Platinum can be created from either Iron or Gold, with Gold being considered a higher tier metal for the promotion formula.

Ascended materials[edit]

Ascended materials from Fractals of the Mists can be both upgraded and degraded.

Materials created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Vial of Condensed Mists Essence.png 3 Vials of Condensed Mists Essence 1 Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence 1 Mystic Coin 1 Master's Salvage Kit
(25 uses)
1 Fractal Relic
Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence.png 3 Globs of Coagulated Mists Essence 1 Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence 1 Mystic Coin 1 Master's Salvage Kit
(25 uses)
1 Fractal Relic
Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence.png 1 Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence 5 Vials of Condensed Mists Essence 1 Mystic Coin 1 Glob of Ectoplasm 1 Fractal Relic
Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence.png 1 Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence 5 Globs of Coagulated Mists Essence 1 Mystic Coin 1 Glob of Ectoplasm 1 Fractal Relic

Mystic Clovers[edit]

Mystic Clovers are used in the creation of the Gift of Fortune, which is required to create all legendary weapons.

Material created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Mystic Clover.png 1 Mystic Clover (~33% chance) 1 Obsidian Shard 1 Mystic Coin 1 Glob of Ectoplasm 6 Philosopher's Stones
Mystic Clover.png 10 Mystic Clovers (~33% chance) 10 Obsidian Shards 10 Mystic Coins 10 Globs of Ectoplasm 10 Crystals

Both recipes pull from the same pool of random results, but the bulk recipe costs and yields ten times more. Using the recipe results in one of the following drops (multiply by 10 for the 10-Clover recipe):

Equipment and upgrade components[edit]

The Mystic Forge can be used to create many specific exotic and legendary weapons, trinkets and upgrade components. See User:Noxx/Mystic Forge/Equipment for a list of known equipment recipes.

Other items[edit]

In addition to materials and equipment, the Mystic Forge can be used to create a variety of other items, including upgraded siege weapon blueprints, miniatures, tonics and gifts. See User:Noxx/Mystic Forge/Other Items for the remaining recipes.

Item created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Crude Salvage Kit.png Mystic Salvage Kit 3 Mystic Forge Stones 1 Fine Salvage Kit

1 Journeyman's Salvage Kit
(25 uses)
1 Master's Salvage Kit
(25 uses)
Booster Multipack.png Booster Multipack 1 Experience Booster 1 Karma Booster 1 Magic Find Booster 1 Leather Bag

Recipes[edit]

These recipes don't give you the respective items, instead they give a Recipe item to learn in the appropriate crafting discipline.

Recipe created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Skill.png Armor box / satchel 1 crafted chest armor x Bottles of Elonian Wine x Crystals x Mystic Coins
Skill.png Food tray / feast 1 cooking meal
(Initiate or higher)
x Bottles of Elonian Wine x Crystals x Mystic Coins
  • The amount of ingredients required depends on the tier of the item.
  • Armor boxes/satchels give you the entire set of armor. They cost the same materials to create as crafting the individual pieces would.
  • Food trays/feasts give you an item to place in the world and whoever interacts with it gets the food buff. They cost 10 pieces of the food to create.

Upgraded siege weapon blueprints[edit]

Siege weapons used in World vs World can be upgraded into more powerful variants at the cost of requiring more supply to build.

Blueprint created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Omega Siege Golem Blueprints.png Omega Siege Golem Blueprints 5 Alpha Siege Golem Blueprints 3 Siege Master's Guides 10 Mithril Ores 10 Elder Wood Logs

Structured PvP items[edit]

PvP rewards can be salvaged with a PvP Salvage Kit into PvP crafting materials (Arcane Powder, arcane tokens, rank tokens or equipment tokens), which can then be used in the following Mystic Forge recipes:

Recipe created Ingredient 1 Ingredient 2 Ingredient 3 Ingredient 4
Skill.png PvP equipment 10 Arcane Powders 1 arcane token 1 rank token 1 equipment token
Arcane Orb.png 11 Arcane Orbs 1 PvP Arcane Converter 25 Arcane Powders 1 Arcane Orb 25 Arcane Slivers
Mystic Crystal.png 11 Arcane Crystals 1 PvP Arcane Converter 25 Arcane Powders 1 Arcane Crystal 25 Arcane Orbs
Glacial Sliver.png 11 Arcane Slivers 1 PvP Arcane Converter 25 Arcane Powders 1 Arcane Sliver 25 Arcane Crystals
Unidentified Dye.png Unidentified Dye (account bound) 1 Consumable Token 1 Arcane Orb 10 Arcane Powders 1 Arcane Sliver
Skill.png Finisher 1 Consumable Token 1 Arcane Orb 10 Arcane Powders 1 rank token
Glory Booster.png Glory Booster 1 Consumable Token 1 Arcane Orb 10 Arcane Powders 1 Arcane Crystal
  • The tiers of used rank token and arcane token determine the rarity of the resulting item, while the equipment token determines its type.

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 item, by combining four dyes, runes, sigils, mini-pets, or four pieces of equipment of equal rarity.
  • The forge will accept more than one of the same item if you split the stack.
