GW2 Temple/God karma armor sets

In Guild Wars 2 there are 6 temples in the Orr zones (70+) and each can spawn a karma vendor once captured that sells Temple/God exotic armor sets. These karma vendors sell  level 80 exotic armors for 42k karma per piece. Each vendor sell different armors, with different stats and set bonuses. This guide will point out the location of these vendors and the stats/rune of the armor that they sell.

Looking for exotic amulets?

The January patch added exotic amulets to these vendors in addition to the exotic armor they are selling. They are cataloged in a separate page here.

Vendor Locations

Remember that these vendors only spawn once your server has successfully captured/defended the respective temples. These events require 10-15 people to participate. Cathedral of Glorious Victory is the hardest one to unlock as it is bugged on some servers and on often failed on others. Note that if the Cathedral icon is contested (i.e. have double crossed swords), then the vendor is not accessible.

  • Armageddon – Straits of Devastation – Cathedral of Glorious Victory- Balthazar
  • Arcon – Malchor’s Leap – Cathedral of Zephyrs- Dwayna
  • Rubicon – Malchor’s Leap – Cathedral of Eternal Radiance – Lyssa
  • Aurora – Cursed Shore – Cathedral of Verdance – Melandru
  • Mortal – Cursed Shore – Cathedral of Silence – Grenth
  • Whispering – Cursed Shore – Arah Entrance

Stats and Runes

The stats for the different sets are not identical. All the sets have identical looks, however, so you can mix and match pieces from different sets for the best stats. Pieces from different sets have different runes attached to them but you can often find these runes on the Trading Post so swapping runes around isn’t an issue.

cathedral of glorious victory is bugged since 2 days now, with that i can finaly go on coz i know what i need. thanks a lot

nice list. keep them coming. can you please release the excel sheet wtih the numbers. I would love to compile my own list of items there so that i know which ones to go for right away. thanks

For WvW (I assume you mean) – these are all Exotics which is the “best” gear. However, there are a couple places you can get Exotic gear from – Crafting (Gold and Materials), Dungeons (Tokens), WvW (Badges of Honor), and here with the Temple vendors (Karma).

These sets only have alot of condition damage…….. Where are the sets for NON-condition damage? I mean there has to be some balance for the characters, this system rewards only tanks or characters with alot of condition damage…

I have to agree with this guy. I want to have a full set of power, not condition damage. Why do 5/6 legs have condition damage, 1 has healing, and none of the other legs have anything in anything else. I’m hoping this is wrong and am gonna do some hopping around.

For those wanting different base stats. You are wanting the crafted gear or dungeon gear. For example the crafted Beserket gear has base states of power/percision/crit damage. This is easily bought off the trading post if you do not have someone to make it for you or you make it yourself. Cheers.

You are correct – if you want those specific stats (Cleric: Power, Toughness, Healing // Carrion: Power, Vitality, Condition Damage) you’ll need to just craft them or possibly look elsewhere (Dungeon vendors in Lion’s Arch or WvW Vendor at your Borderlands Citadel).

ANet wanted to give you the option to choose from several different stat distributions, so some of the ones here in the Dungeon gear are unique and unable to be found elsewhere. I think it’s a pretty solid idea so that you don’t funnel players into picking armor stats from the 7 craftable sets.

aye, if the temple is contested, then the vendor won’t spawn. If you can’t get to it on your server, my advice is to xfer to another server temporarily (i.e. a heavily populated server like Jade Quarry prolly has it open) and purchase stuff there and xfer back after 24 hr lockout is gone.

why is there no light feet armor with precision toughness and condition damage stat combination in all the temples?

There’s also no chest. I got the chest from WvW and going to get the boots in another 40 badges. The vendor is by the portals in your home borderland.

aside from trading post anyone knows were to get a light feet armor with precision condition damage and toughness stats?

hi please can anyone help me? please does anyone know what my stats should be im level 80 thief and have 1 part of the aurora set the legs. I want to know what stats i should be looking to have Power, percision, crit, healing, condition and health please any advice would be greatfull

Depends on yr play style. I carry 2 sets along, a Power/Crit for melee, a Condition/Vitality for kiting/jp. I switch btw them as situation calls for it

Dulfy, any plans on doing an exotic accessories gearing guide? Haven’t had any luck finding one online yet, and I imagine many people would appreciate it.

You might be correct. i haven’t been to any 80 zones yet and only assumed there would be accessory items purchaseable with karma or dungeon tokens.

I really thank you for this graphic. It helped me a lot in deciding and locating. Clear and concise 🙂

Hi, just want to ask if the karma exotic armors are soul bound on purchase?

Because I want to use my ranger’s karma points to purchase but give to my mesmer to wear.

Thanks.

No, they’re account bound, so you can buy them on one character and drop it in your bank for another character to use. Now that Karma is account bound, shouldn’t be an issue. 🙂

no there not, just went and bought a full set for my thief on my mez thinking it’d be a great incentive to lvl her…. its all soulbound

HI!
After july’s update all karma merchant in every temple sell only 3 sets: Armageddon heavy, Aurora medium, Rubicon light.
I can not find others types, f.e. Whispering, Mortal or f.e. Armageddon light or Aurora heavy.

where are others karma armor?

Can you add a warning: Armour pieces bought from the karma vendors are NOT salvageable!!! So don’t put any expensive runes in them or you won’t be able to get them out (without buying overpriced extractors from gem store).

serious problem for me trying to convert gear to ascended
