I haven't messed with the mystic forge at all. From what I understand, the random item making is pretty useless? And the recipes for the legendary weps aren't widely known yet?
Also, how does the armor work. Is exotic armor crafted with the highest tier mats or is the mystic forge used? I have rare 80 armor from crafting it using silk and the karma recipes that take 15 monster mats each. Will the armor that uses gossamer be exotic?
One more question. Do legendary weps have higher damage then exotic weps? If the legendaries take insane amounts of mats then it kinda goes against anets policy of grinding for skins, not max stats.
Some people claimed to have gotten the legendary material weapons from tossing in rares/exotics, the 4 of the same item kind is really a big gamble but it can work out very well.
A lot of the non random recipes for exotics have been found out, majority of people are simply not sharing the recipes. Look at the trading post and see which named exotics have been on sale already.
armor boxes recipes require a crafted armor to make, and they give a recipe for the entire set of armor with the same stats.
Keep in mind these take 10 insignia's for exotics, meaning you need 4 insignia's more then normal crafting. (ergo don't do it!)
Yes legendary weapons have better stats, altough from what i saw it's only a 5 point difference. a-net still lied about that though.
