Guild Wars 2 Legendary Weapons Crafting Recipes Guide – Gift Recipes and Where To Find

By   /   Aug 30, 2012


Legendary Weapons in Guild Wars 2 are a set of high end weapons that have extremely unique appearances. They are crafted in the Mystic Forge.

By all accounts, Legendary weapons are of equal power to Exotic (Orange) weapons, and so do not confer a statistical advantage over their Exotic companions, but their Legendary status brings other perks, like crazy visual effects, and more ephemeral bonuses like in-game prestige.

If you desire to eventually get epic weapons for your characters, you should know that each epic weapon requires two components that can only be made by max rank 400 crafters.
