A Mystic Forge recipe has been added to upgrade the Triforge Amulet to an ascended version with a utility infusion slot.
anyone knows the recipe?

so far only Fractal Relics
no T6 mats, no Ecto, no Mystic coins, no Gift od Ascention, no Fractal mat (Shard/Globe/Vial)

If you want a free amulet with defensive and offensive slots you can get them with laurels.

The recipe for ascended triforge is...

1 ecto
1 mystic coin
1 fractal relic
1 triforge pendant

Thats what posted on offical forums anyway

Looks like Triforge might still be pretty worthless, can't use agony upgrades, free versions of same stats available from laurels.

How is spending 30 Laurals considered free?  That's a month's worth of dailies (or 20 days + the monthly).  Since Laurals cannot be purchased you are bound by time.  If people have XXX's of gold, which people do, then it might make more sense to spend gold and save the Laurals for other items that cannot be purchased off the TP.  Like the new minis and other ascended rings/amulets/infusion upgrades.

Unless im mistaken the Triforge can only have a utility slot? Making it unable to use agony stats. For 180+ gold thats alot of gold to waste on something that can not use agony when all you have to do is your daily and monthly and can have it for free in 20 days....with agony...

It is free because all it requires is time and just playing the game doing your daily and monthly. The rings you get from fractals, backpiece from fractals, amulet from laurels, it's not meant to be quick..

But your right if people want to blow 180 gold on something that doesn't use agony and has same stats for free they are free to do so. Unless im missing something I personally dont see it as worth the gold cost.

Maybe ascended triforge can be infused some how with def / off slots? I doubt it though.

Can't the standard versatile infusion be used in the utility slots? I figured Omni infusions would work in everything.

For people like me, time is money.  Some people would rather have an item today versus waiting 20+ days.  Example.  If I wanted the Syzgy Amulet (30 Laurals) infused with the 20% Magic Find (20 Laurals) upgrade, I would have to spend 50 Laurals which will take about 40 days (40 dailies + monthly).  However, an alternative option is to use the Triforge which shaves 20-30 days off.  Obviously, with this combination, Agony Res is useless because it's most likely used as a "farming" build and not a high-level FotM build.

Possibly yes but the triforge is worthless because of the stats are too spread out, the 180 gold cost isn't justfied, you can't use offensive or defensive infusions on it and you can get the exact same amulets for free with laurels..with any type of infusion slot you wish...

Only reasons to get one are 1, epeen, 2, being impatient and blowing 180 gold to skip 20 days waiting time for ascended amulet, can't realy think of any other reasons why anyone would waste the gold on one.

Its different for each person. I mean, personnally i really need my gold for a lot of things and I really don't want to spend that kind of money on an Amulet. Especially since i don't like the Celestial stats distribution.

But on the other end, people like this kind of stats, have gold and don't really want to spend that gold anywhere because they already bought all they wanted.

Or event, hardcore player that farm or play on the TP for several hours per day. It would take about 45 hours of farming for me to get 180 gold. But doing dailies and montly for a month will take me about 20-30 hours and about half this time would be done during my normal playing times. Making the farming for daily counting for about 10-15 hours. Far less time that the farming for gold, but spread over a larger time frame.

Triforge pendant offers more total stats on a wider spread. If you're going for a mix that requires 4+ stats (example: power/toughness/precision/vitality) then it's more item efficient to equip celestial style upgrades as you will gain more total stats evenly. However, it is important to note that you would have to equip a significant amount of the celestial upgrades as a small number is largely a waste.

In the long run, they will even out and you will end up with a much more balanced character. If you're only pushing for 2-3 stats then your character will be a bit weaker.

You can achieve the same results using specific stat type items without having to use stuff that is "average at nothing" spread out too thin in one item...or wasting 180+ gold...
