With today’s Guild Wars 2 update, a new legendary weapon arrived along with it. The new system is balanced with existing legendaries, provides a way to progress every time it’s used, and artwork will be placed into game immediately and not be “hampered by design implementation time”.

As a result, players will need to go through the following steps in the new legendary weapon process:

  • When a new legendary weapon becomes available, speak to Grandmaster Craftsman Hobbs in Lion’s Arch to purchase the first-tier precursor recipe.
  • With the recipe unlocked, play in any Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns™ map to purchase the new, weapon-specific material with that map’s currency (including Unbound Magic).
  • Refine the new material and use it to craft the first-tier precursor.
  • Return to Hobbs and repeat this process for the second- and third-tier precursors.
  • Use the final precursor in the Mystic Forge, with a recipe very similar to the otherGuild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns legendary weapons, to craft your new legendary weapon.
