Eric Flannum: The Mystic Forge uses a combination of random and non-random recipes. For example, if I throw four rare swords into the forge, it will return a random sword to me with a chance for that sword to be substantially better. There are also specific items that can be created by throwing four very specific items into the forge with no random involved at all. Players should look for clues hidden around the world and in items for what combinations might work. Another exciting aspect of the Mystic Forge is that it is very easy for us to add recipes, so post-launch, we can continue to add new things for players to discover.

Has anyone actually found any clues ingame?

Nope, but I'm sure to look now I've seen this. Thanks!

I found some crystal shard a while back that has some notes on it. It says something like "There is an inscription that is faded and all you can read is 'Oooo ...'." I have tried to see if it goes into the Forge, and nothing. Not sure what it is for honestly. But it is a rare crystal with text, and no crafting use that I can tell.

I guess I might need to start reading all those books/papers I find lying around on the ground randomly?

If you’re more the figure-it-out-yourself type, you can finds hints as to how to craft your weapon in almost every area of Guild Wars 2—WvW, dungeons, dynamic events, crafting, and more—so keep your eyes peeled.

Still no clues found?
I know we already have the recipe for Legendary weapons, but did anyone actually find a clue ingame?

It does seem sort of funny that players brute forced it within weeks, but no one has been able to notice the apparently subtle "clues" left around the world...

Honestly I don't know how you'd know what you were looking at even if you saw one.

Whats weird is someone knows the full component for legendary (mystic clover? Cmon, how?) with or without the clue
Yet i cant stop wondering how did they figure out those component? A hint from anet?
While for named exotic, we still have no idea (except the mystic stuff)

tsk tsk. It opens a event which has a chest in the end. Which means means you lost out.
