WARNING: Some of the GW2DB Items aren't entirely correct. That is due to the Database being in a beta state. If you find things, please tell me immediately. Thank you!

List of things to do here:
  • Add GW2DB Links so you can see a mouse-over when they become available
  • Update Text, Research correct names of some items.
  • Write more details on Dungeon Gifts
How you can contribute to our efforts even now:
  • We need more data on the level range the weapons used to create the base need to have. For now we assume it's all items above 76+
  • We need more Data on the drop locations of Cores and Lodestones
  • We need to find out which 2nd Gift is used for the Torch. The Wiki is unclear on this.
  • Help us find the correct names for some of the Exotics & Legendary. I already found 3 wrong names in the list that have changed towards the launch.
  • WE CAN'T SAY FOR SURE HOW THE TORCH IS NAMED UNTIL SOMEBODY MAKES IT. THE BASE WEAPON SAYS RODGORT, THE RECIPE SAY'S DRAGON MAW.
Here is a list of Screenshots from this thread on reddit for your viewing pleasure, before you start. Please note that Twilight doesn't show the right skin and a few weapons are appearently not even in the game yet. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GUIDE BEGINS HERE!

If you need more Information on how to actually FARM the stuff for your Legendary (Gold, Karma, Mats) please check out this Guide: http://www.guildwars...egendary-guide/

Making Legendaries are a long process, which will devour roughly over 100g and 2 Million Karma. Not to mention your time. Some parts are made from crafting, others are obtained as loot, some are random, but pretty much all of them need to be thrown into the Mystic Forge. This thread is meant to walk you through the process step-by-step. So let's start...



Obtaining the Exotics
Each of the Legendaries has it's own exotic base weapon. These are always " ____ of Rage" items, because it's the default Superior Sigil. 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. Either way, you need to obtain the following specific items to craft your Legendary.

This is unconfirmed, but according to someone over at MMO-Champion you can use Mystic Forge Stones to substitute a exotic weapon. Not yet proven: Greatsword - Sunrise + Twilight - Used for: Eternity



Crafting Gifts
Depending on what Legendary you are crafting, you will have to create specific Gifts. These are related to different Crafting Skills. Gifts are Account-Bound, so buying them on the Trading Post is impossible. The Recipes for these gifts are sold by Miyani in Lion's Arch. You can find her next to the Mystic Forge. The list here will link to the Wiki, where you can see what you need. AT THIS TIME NOT ALL WIKI ENTIRES MAY BE CORRECT, SO PLEASE TAKE CARE! The Gifts are used as part of the final 3 components you will make with the Mystic Forge later on.

Legendaries and which Gifts they need:
Just click on the items, it will take you to GW2DB and show you which profession makes which Gift. How to make/obtain Lodestones:
Lodestones used for crafting weapon-specific Gifts drop from high level Elementals and the following Dungeons (research ongoing):

Twilight Arbor - Onyx Lodestone
Citadel of Flame - Molten Lodestone
Honor of the Waves - Glacial Lodestone
Crucible of Eternity - Charged Lodestone
Arah - Corrupted Lodestone
Sorrow's Embrace - Destroyer Lodestone


Unknown Locations:
Crystal Lodestone

You can also make them in the Mystic Forge if you have Cores (1 Tier below Lodestones):

2x Core + 1x Crystal + 1x Bottle of Elonian wine + 1x Pile of Crystalline Dust

You can obtain Bottle of Elonian Wine from Miyani by the Mystic Forge for 25 silver. She also sells Crystals for 3 Skill points.



How to make/obtain Dungeon Gifts:
Each of the weapon specific gifts needs a specific Dungeon item. Since I don't have the time right now to update this section, just let me tell you the quick version.

You can buy a Dungeon Gift from the Vendors in LA that also sell the armor. Each costs 500 Tokens from their respective Dungeons. Check the Recipe you have bought for what you need.


Ascalonian Catacombs - Gift of Ascalon: Twilight, Sunrise, Bolt, The Chosen
Arah - Gift of Zhaitan:  Bitfrost, Maw of the Deep
Twilight Arbor - Gift of Thorns: The Dreamer, Howler, Kudzu
Honor the Waves - Gift of the Sanctuary: Frenzy, Frostfang
Citadel of Flame - Gift of Baelfire: Incinerator
Sorrow's Embrace - Gift of Forgeman: The Juggernaut, Kraitkin
Caudecus's Manor - Gift of Nobleman: The Minstrel, Quip, The Moot
Crucible of Eternity - Gift of Knowledge: Predator, Meteorlogicus


Example:
Gift of Darkness & Gift of Light both need Gift of Ascalon to be crafted.




Mystic Forge Gifts & Components
To obtain your Legendary, you will need to use the Mystic Forge to combine a great many things. While none of the components are actually "easy" to obtain, I will still try to list them in the order in which you can most likely obtain them.

Gift of Mastery
The first component for a Legendary is obtained by adding the following materials into the Mystic Forge:

Bloodstone Shard + 250x Obsidian Shard + Gift of Exploration + Gift of Battle

Let's start with the Bloodstone Shard[s, since it's easy. You can obtain this from Miyani right next to the Forge for 200 Skill points.

Obsidian Shard are obtained from Tactician Deathstrider at the Temple of Balthazar in Straits of Devastation
for 2100 Karma each. So you better bring those 525000 Karma with you.

2 Gifts of Exploration is obtained by reaching 100% World Completion. So get exploring!

Gift of Battle is obtained from any Weaponsmith in the WvW area. It will cost you 500 Badges of honor - so better start the queue, if your realm is full.

Congratulation, you are now one step closer to your Legendary.



Gift of Fortune
The second component for a Legendary is obtained by adding the following materials into the Mystic Forge:

77x Mystic Clover + 250x Globs of Ectoplasm + Gift of Magic + Gift of Might

Mystic Clover are made in the Mystic Forge. They are a rare component obtained when using the T6 Crafting Recipe (yields 20-50 T6 Mats or 10 Clovers). KEEP THOSE T6 MATS!
The recipe is:

10 Obsidian Shards + 10 Mystic Coins + 10 Ectos + 10 Crystals

You already know where to get Obsidian Shards from the 1st Component.

5 Crystals can be bought from Miyani for 3 Skill points.

Mystic Coins are rewarded for Daily/Monthly Achievements, you should know this by now.

Globs of Ectoplasm are crafting Materials, gained from salvaging 70+ rare/exotic items with at least a Master's Salvage Kit, probably better to get some Mystic Salvage Kits for this ;)

1x Glob of Ectoplasm + 6x Philosopher's stone + 1x Obsidian Shard + 1x Mystic Coin = 1-3 T6 or a Mystic Clover

Now, all those attempts to get the Mystic Clover you need should've left you win hundred of T6 Crafting Mats. Which is good. Since you will need them now.


Gift of Magic is made from the Mystic Forge by throwing the following into it:

250x Vicious Fangs + 250x Armored Scale + 250x Vicious Claw+ 250x Ancient Bone

Gift of Might is made from the Mystic Forge by throwing the following into it:

250x Vial of Powerful Blood + 250x Powerful Venom Sac + 250x Elaborate Totem + 250x Pile of Crystalline Dust

Congratulations. You have now obtained your 2nd Component. And if you aren't broke yet, you will be soon.



Gift of <Insert Legendary Name>
You need 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).

This Component needs:

Crafting Gift A + Crafting Gift B + 100x Icy Runestones + Superior Sigil of X.

Icy Runestones cost 1 gold each and can be bought after defeating the Claw of Jormag in Frostgorge Sound.

Now just throw all that stuff into the Mystic Forge after you have spend 100G on it and you can make a Gift of <Insert Legendary Name>.

Example:
Gift of Light + Gift of Metal + 100x Icy Runestones + Superior Sigil of Strength = Gift of Sunrise.



Legendaries and which Superior Sigils they need: Obtaining the Legendary
Now just take your exotic base weapon and your components and throw them into the Forge.

Example:
Dawn + Gift of Sunrise + Component 2 + Component 3 = Sunrise

Congratulations! - you have now obtained your Legendary. And probably in more than a week! If you manage to make one in a week or less, Munkee will be forced by us all to give you a special price.

Don't forget to post your Legendary so we can drool at it.

Superior Sigil of Strength only combines with Gift of Sunrise, Twilight should combine with one of the following: Superior SIgil of Air/Ice/Fire/Blood/Battle (these and strength are the ones that combine with gift of metal).

are we sure on the 250 ecto count?
because by the rule of each tier2 mat total to roughly 100g, the ecto count would be probably 500.

clovers, doesn't matter how many, it would take roughly 40 transmutes. If the chance was higher than 2.5 average per transmute, you will need more.
So if 2.5 per transmute (every 10 transmutes gave you 25) then it's 100. If it was 5 per transmute, it could very well be 200, or 250 if 6.5 per transmute.

We aren't entirely sure yet. It's the rough estimate based on the closed testing groups information and what we know from the other items. It will be updated.

Uhh okey I guess he didnt have all sigils, those sigils were the sigils that Obsecenity could combine with Gift of Metal but that part of Twilight shouldnt be too costly to figure out as its just a sigil. .

Fortune have to be the one that requires Icy Runestones.
This one is called Gift of Twilight / Sunrise etc.
The Gift of Mastery is for mastering WvW / Explore everything / Having Karma like a Boss and having 200 skillpoints., the Gift of Fortune for having farmed alle the t6 Mats including clovers and ectos

At least that's my bet!

Well me and Munkee have know the recipe for legendaries, but did not know how many clovers and icy runestones would be needed.  We figured 250 of them.  Congrats on getting the recipe.  I figured when I told everyone to try throwing gifts in the forge and seeing what greys out that evntually you would stumble on the recipe.  I also thought the clover would be a stumbling block since you get T6 items most of the time and not clovers.  FYI, since nobody has posted this you need the leeching sigil for twilight.

Nice guide. But how do you know that the Gift of Fortune is called Gift of Fortune without knowing how many Clovers? Do you not need to craft it first to see the output(and know the name) and therefore neet do know how many Clovers? Or is it already showing the output if you put 1 of each item in the forge but not showing how many you need?

We assume that it's that way, since it make only sense in that combo. Gift of Mastery (of the game) is clearly Exploration, WvW and PvE. We know for sure that Gift of Sunrise is made from those materials, so only Gift of Fortune is left. And it makes sense. Because Clovers + Tons of Mats that cost a fortune ;P

We aren't sure how many Clovers we need, since we are waiting for Obsecenity to finish his stuff :)


Edit: Also, something in this forum hates me and changes text sizes. ARGH.I think there is something wrong with the code formating. It does only seem to add new code, but not remove the old one. That's why the opening post now looks so damn weird.

Oh okay. But where did you get the names from? Is there some recipe? I know it says at the base weapons you use "can be used to craft the legendary weapon xyz" and it says the same at the the gift recipes at that merchant that is selling them for 10 gold. But is there a recipe saying "used with gift of fortune to craft legendaries" or how do you even know about the name "gift of fortune" that it is named like this? I do not know much about this so sorry if it is a stupid questin and something obviously mentioned somewhere.

We got the names from the GW2DB. See post above. It's the most likely ones to be used for the respective items, even though we have not build them yet.

The Legendary Items don't clearly state which others you need. People believed strongly it's just Base Weapon + Crafting Gift A + Crafting Gift B + Bloodstone Shard before this whole thing got rolling.

We spend a ton of time researching it all in this thread: http://www.guildwars...ion-and-how-to/

We did tons of trial & error, thought about what might work and found it with some blind luck and tips.

That is why we thank so many ;)

Okay thanks. And this GW2DB how do they know this items exists? Do they check the game data from the client to see which items exist ingame?

Especially with Mastery it seems to make sense and if they can't be obtained in any other way. Then probably must be the stuff you discovered. Yeah. Makes sense now.
