Guild Wars 2 Mystic Forge Recipes Guide



Guild Wars 2 Mystic Forge Recipes Guide by greyf0x

Primer on the Mystic Forge:
If you’re new to the Mystic Forge, check out Ratboy’s general “How To” on PvP crafting.

To sum up the process breifly: to create an item you need an item token (available from a glory vendor), a rank token (Rabbit, Deer, etc.), an arcane token (crystal, orb, sliver, etc.) and some arcane powder. The combination of rank token and arcane token ultimately determines the look of the item, while the item token determins the type (weapon, light armor, heavy armor etc). Consumable recipes follow different and varied rules, as indicated in the recipe list.

The Recipes
When posting your recipes, please list the following information

  • Item Token used (including Light/Medium/Heavy, or weapon type)
  • Rank token used (Rabbit, Deer, Tournament etc)
  • Arcane token (Orb, Crystal, Sliver)

Then post the item created, including:

  • Item’s full name
  • Armor weight (light/medium/heavy) if applicable
  • Armor slot (head, chest etc) if applicable

Consumables have very varied recipes so just post the ingredients used, including the amount of each required.

Examples (please include Token, Orb/Crystal/Sliver and Armor Weight):

  • Free Tournament Token + Orb + Light Helm = PvP Rubric Circlet (Light Helmet)
  • Rabbit Token + Orb + Dagger = Makeshift Dagger
  • 1 Consumable Token + 1 Crystal + 1 Orb + 10 powder= Glory Booster

Below is a list of recipes based on players’ crafting experiments. Where possible, I have linked to the corresponding wiki pages, so that you can see how the armor looks etc.

It appears recipes have a small chance to “crit” and create a different, rarer, skin. Orbs and crystals craft items one rarity up. Slivers seem to have unique “crit craft” skins for each tier. Our understanding of how this crit chance works is still limited, so I am only posting recipes for which players (or my own tests) have found in-game. Names listed in orange, indicate these “crit” results.

Results in green are from data collected during BWEs. These have been cross-referenced using multiple sources, and initial tests at lower ranks suggest they are unchanged. However, actual results from live, especially at the higher ranks where data was patchy, would be appreciated.

Anomalous Results

These results may be intricacies of the system which we don’t yet understand, or simple bugs, at this stage it’s hard to tell. However, any results which fall outside of the expected behaviour will be mentioned here. This may even be helpful to ArenaNet in locating erroneous recipes.

  • Various items, salvaging into Tournament Tokens or tokens above their rank (people salvaging Tiger Tokens from gear in dolyak/wolf chests for example)

Though tournament tokens being obtainable outside of tourney chests might “possibly” be intended, getting tiger tokens from anything other than tiger chests is clearly unintended. If you find such recipes, I would advise using /bug to report them in game to ArenaNet. I am collecting info on this (to send to ANet), but I will not post them here, as they may be considered exploits. I don’t imagine ANet will punish players for finding and using these recipes, but I don’t want to encourage players to abuse mechanics which are unintended.

  • Free tournament + Sliver + Heavy Armor Pauldrons = PvP Pit Fighter`s Pauldrons

The expected result would be Armageddon, Pit Fighter is thought to be the common (Orb) recipe. So far this is unexpected as we don’t have any examples of slivers crafting items of a lower rank.

  • Tournament Token + Arcane Orb + Medium Helm = Commando Helm.

Most likely a naming problem, as the helm visually matches the stalwart set. There are few items with similar erroneous names. At some point I will try to compile a list of them all.

  • Light Armor + Wolf Token recipes.

It seems like there is some unusual behavior surrounding Light Wolf sets, there are reports that each material type (Orb, Crystal, Sliver) is randomly producing any of the three sets for this tier (Stately, Priory and Masquerade).

  • Medium Armor + Dolyak

As with light+wolf, each material type (Orb, Crystal, Sliver) is randomly producing any of the three sets for this tier (Stately, Priory and Masquerade). Or at the very least, more random than usual results.
