Guild Wars 2 Mystic Forge Recipes Research by tentenhun

Check the Mystic Weapon section to see how you can craft exotic max-stat weapons with 50 skill points

Update: It seems like the recipes with scrolls are exotic weapons or armors. This means you can get an exotic weapon for 50 skill points, mystic coins, and some mats. We should figure out what exotic weapons each recipe gets so people can get the exotic they want.

Also, probably some of these recipes are for legendary weapons precursors, and we should find out which ones they are.

Update 2: I think the higher the Mystic Coin number in the recipe, the harder the item is to get and the rarer it is. So the legendary precursors might be one of the recipes with a scroll and a higher number of coins

I’m pretty sure a lot of people have figured out Mystic Forge recipes, but are just hording the information to make profit, so I’m trying to share what I know and aggregate info from the community.

Quick primer on the Mystic Forge

The Mystic Forge does 2 things:

  • Random items when you combine 4 random items
  • Set recipes that give you the same thing each time. A lot of these are level 80 exotics weapons/armor. I’m pretty sure each recipe with a scroll gives an 80 exotic. We just have to figure out which recipes give what.

So I bought a lot of singletons of crafting materials so I could see what recipes the Mystic Forge has. Here’s what I found. Here’s a list of shorthand I use (Miyani is the NPC next to the Mystic forge)

  • Wine = Elonian Wine – 25.6 silver from Miyani.
  • Scroll = Eldritch Scroll – 50 skill points from Miyani
  • Crystal – 5 for 3 skill points from Miyani
  • C. Dust – Crystalline Dust
  • Ecto – Glob of Ectoplasm – get it from salvaging level 80 rares with a master salvage kit
  • When I refer to fine crafting materials like bones, I mean the tier 6 version (e.g. Ancient Bones). Anything lower won’t work, but you can transmute lower tiers up using philosopher stones.

Common and Fine Material Promotion

Check the wiki This will tell you how to turn copper or into iron ore and large bones into ancient bones, for example.


2 Core + 1 Crystal + 1 Wine + 1 C.Dust = Lodestone

For example, if you use two Molten Cores you will get one Molten Lodestones. This is useful because I’m pretty sure some of the Lodestones, like Crystal Lodestone, don’t even drop from enemies since there are no high-level branded enemies

Upgrading Siege Weapons:

5 mithril ore + 5 elder wood log + 2 siege weapons + siege masters guide = stronger siege weapon

Mystic Weapon (level 80 exotics with particle effect):


1 scroll + 30 coins + 5 component A + 5 component B

For example, to make a sword you use 5 orichalcum hilts and 5 orichalcum blades. It only accepts level 80 components (so orichalcum components)

Some people are having trouble, so here’s a more thorough explanation. Go to and then go to recipes for the craft that makes the weapon you want. Then click on one of the pearl weapons of the type you want (the affix doesn’t matter, so Berserker’s or Carrion or any of those is fine). Now look at the ingredients of that recipe. One will be an inscription, and the other two will be the components you want.

For example if you want a greatsword, you would look at and see the components are Orichalcum Greatsword Blade and Orichalcum Greatsword Hilt. So then the recipe you would use is

1 scroll + 30 coins + 5 ori greatsword blade + 5 ori greatsword hilt

and you would get Mystic Claymore

See the bottom for a gallery of Mystic weapons and their stats that I’ve collected so far. The stats are set and will always be the same. You can also check the PvP locker to preview them.

There are also probably recipes using the other lodestones, but I ran out of money and couldn’t buy them to find out. Let’s work together as a community and chart this unexplored territory! I’m pretty sure some of these recipes at least give you the exotic components for legendaries.

If the reddit community can band together and chart new territory, then I think that would be awesome! To the best of my knowledge the results of these recipes isn’t available publicly anywhere.

    I just wanted to thank you for opening my eyes to the Mystic Forge recipes. I didn’t know so much could be created from adding these different components. I’ve been randomly tossing stuff in hoping for decent results – I won’t do that any longer!
