With great thanks to the Guild Wars 2 community, we now have the formula for crafting legendary weapons. Below is the Master Recipe for legendary weapons and all the sub-components required to craft them: Base Exotic Weapon
They can be obtained by throwing 4 rare/exotic weapons above level 76 (research ongoing) of the type you want to obtain into the Mystic Forge (4x Greatsword for Dusk or Dawn) and getting lucky. Or you might be able to obtain them as loot from events or enemies while being out in the world. Base Gift
You need a specific Superior Sigil depending on what you want to craft, but they are most likely themed. Also the Mystic Forge won't accept any other sigils than the one that works with the specific components you threw into it (as far as we know).

Base Gift Recipe: Crafting Gift A + Crafting Gift B + 100x Icy Runestones + Superior Sigil of X

Base Gift Sub-Gifts Base Gift Sub-Components

You can also make Lodestones in the Mystic Forge if you have the core equivalent (one tier below lodestones): 2x Core Type + 1x Crystal + 1x Bottle of Elonian Wine + 1x Pile of Crystalline Dust

  • Dungeon Gifts: obtained at the vendors in LA that also sell dungeon armor. Each costs 500 Tokens from their respective dungeons.
  • Icy Runestones are obtained after defeating the Claw of Jormag in Frostgorge Sound for 1 gold each.

Great info and nice to see the preview images of those legendaries. The only sad thing other then how hard it seems to achieve these weapons is that there is now way to see the visual effects that these weapons actually do. Can't wait to see how they actually look in game.

Pretty things, yay!

We might actually be better off using this write-up with a few changes, since it's more reading-friendly than mine :P

Is it just me or are most of the legendary in this gallery really ugly and seems out of place?

I guess it's nice if you just want to stand out..  The bows, scepter, mace and pistol are just ridiculous.

I quite like the longbow, but the shortbow is ridiculous.

Feel free to PM me if you have a question regarding moderation, want to leave some feedback, or just want to chat!

Yea the longbow is alright it just dosn't feel cool enough to be a legendary item imo. Same for the mace which just look like a disco ball.

But yea thanks for the thread ! I was curious about the legendaries.

You can't really tell how they look from these previews. As far as I know they all have special animations that let the user really stand out.

I just wanted to add that Onyx Lodestones can be obtained via standard earth elemental loot (happened to me a few hours ago [Orr]).

So do you NEED a crafting proffesion, or can you make the gifts from the forge if you have all the items?

i like that they seem to be such a lengthy process to obtain.  but,  i have a feeling some people will have legendary's by October.  also,  most of them,  like most of the gear in this game,  does not appeal to me.

I always feel that Staff's designs are boring in GW2 =/

I'm playing a Necro and i want a really cool staff, and i didn't found one that stands out. At the other hand we have the greatswords that are just something taken from an FF game or something.

Gift of exploration, is it soul bound or account bound? That's my only concern as it would limit a character to only 2 per.

I guess ill just save all the items for the bifrost if I get them....
Until I see the staff in game I wont be going out of my way to work towards it. Im hoping the preview is not doing it justice, well I assume its the case. Because its way to bland. I hope it does some special partical effects and other things. Like the rainbow bow shooting rainbows and what not....

How about those Legendary weapons having a slightly higher damage scale than exotics, despite what ANet has said about the stat plateau? (Yes, I know that the difference is very small, but it does still exist).

As it's late, could I get some confirmation on what I'm interpreting please?

For all the legendaries, everyone will need:
[list]
[*][b][url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/70047-gift-of-mastery"]Gift of Mastery[/url][/b]: [url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/63169-bloodstone-shard-s"]Bloodstone Shard[/url] + 250x [url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/63168-obsidian-shard-s"]Obsidian Shard[/url] + [url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/70050-gift-of-exploration"]Gift of Exploration[/url] + [url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/70051-gift-s-of-battle"]Gift of Battle[/url]
[*][b][url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/63150-gift-of-fortune"]Gift of Fortune[/url][/b]: 77x [url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/70048-mystic-clover"]Mystic Clover[/url] + 250x [url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/3503-glob-s-of-ectoplasm"]Glob of Ectoplasm[/url] + [url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/70046-gift-of-magic"]Gift of Magic[/url] + [url="http://www.gw2db.com/items/70045-gift-of-might"]Gift of Might[/url]
[/list]
All those materials, no matter which you want to craft?

Then coupled with a specific exotic weapon, sigil and basically 2 crafted, specific, gifts in line with whatever weapon you want?

That does seem like a lot of work/effort/time etc. I'm glad it is, and that people will earn them... but whether or not I think the reward is worth it is another thing right now :P

Question, feedback or issue? Pm me!
