I checked the Laurel Merchant and get the following numbers

Triforge Pendant
6 x 40 stat point + 5%crit damage + 3% magic find + 1slot (which can become 25+15+15=55 stat points) <I use stat points for easy example to compair>

so, the Triforge Pendant has 295 stat points, 5% critical damage, and 3% magic find.


From the list of Ascended Amulet, I find that Syzygy get more or less the even stat distribution like Triforge Pendant, its stat:
6 x 42 stat point + 5% crit damage + 6 x 8 stat point + 1% crit damge + 4% magic find + 1 Utility slot. (which can become a big 20% magic find)

so, the Syzygy has 300 stat points, 6% critical damage, 4% magic find and 1 slot which can have very useful utility like 20% magic find.


Just a simple compare and u can see that Syzygy has 5 more stat point, 1% more crit damage, 1% more magic find, and potentially 20% moremagic find!

This makes Syzygy much better than Triforge Pendant, which is like a mini Legendary to make, now still cost 155(bid) to 216G(ask) in BlackLion Trading.


I think Anet should bump the Triforge Pendant to justify the efforts to make it.

Is possible to upgrade the Triforge Pendant to the ascended version spending almost nothing with this recipe in the mystic forge:

1 Glob of Ectoplasm
1 Mystic Coin
1 Fractal Relic
1 Triforge Pendant

After this upgrade the Ascended Triforge have the same stats of the others ascended amulets, and the ascended version have utility slot infusion.

The triforge now is at 289 Ask with only 1 available. I think they need to significantly bump the amulet. I love the Zelda reference just won't pay for something that is mediocre. Especially if its not even a visible item.

I think all they "need" to do is to make the triforge into a visible item. Of course, that'd probably just open a can of worms about making other jewelry visible... but I'd like that too if they did it decently.  Maybe someday down the road they'll think about it, when someone gets bored.

Making it better than ascended items though, is not something they need or even should do.  It's an all around bad idea, and before you say that they just need to make it as good as the szyzgy, remember that it's all ready as good by using the above mentioned mystic forge recipe.

the people that make it/buy it know what they're getting.
So the price is completely justified.

People will pay for it for the "Look what I have"/Showoff part. Its not visible, but that wont stop them linking it...
