GW2 Ascended gear and infusion recipes

A comprehensive guide to all the new GW2 ascended gear (backpieces, amulets, rings, accessories), and infusions. Updated for the Nov 28, 2013 patch.

Upgrading and downgrading


You can upgrade and downgrade mist essences

  • Upgrade: 5 of Vial/Glob of Mist essence + 1 Mystic Coin + 1 1 Pile of Crystalline Dust+ 1 Glob of Ectoplasm = 1 Glob/Shard of Mist essence
  • Downgrade: 1 Shard or Glob of Mist Essence + 1 Mystic Coin + 1 1 Pile of Crystalline Dust + 1 Master Salvage Kit = 3 of lower tier essence.

You can upgrade ascended rings into infused versions

Backpieces


Note: If you upgrade any of the backpieces from the basic Ascended version to the Infused, you will lose the infusion you applied to it. Therefore, it is better to wait for the final version to apply any fancy infusions.

There are now 2 methods to make Ascended backpieces. The first method is via grinding as it uses about 1835 fractal relics from the Fractal of the Mists dungeon. The second method is via mostly gold as you need a lot of globs of ectoplasm and T6 fine crafting materials.

Method 1 – Grind


Ascended Version (Prototype Fractal Capacitor): This method makes the Ascended version of the Prototype Fractal Capacitor, which has no glow.

gw2_prototype_fractal_capacitorgw2_prototype_fractal_capacitor_2

The Fractal of the Mists vendor sells exotic version of the Prototype Fractal Capacitor for 1350 Fractal Relics. There are 4 versions with different stats

gw2-prototype-fractal-capacitorgw2-prototype-fractal-capacitor-2

The vendor also sells Gift of the Ascension for 500 Fractal Relics.

Now, you need to take both items (1850 relics in total) to the mystic forge and use the following recipes to make the Ascended version with either Offensive or Defensive slot (it is opposite of books/quivers with crystals and philosopher’s stone)

Note: Both Philosopher’s Stone and Crystals are brought from Miyani near the Mystic Forge in Lion’s Arch. Vial of Condensed Mists Essence is a rare drop from the Fractal of Mists Dungeon

Infused Version (Beta Fractal Capacitor): To make the infused Version of the Prototype Fractal Capacitor (It is called Beta Fractal Capacitor), you will need to use the following components in the mystic forge

  • Beta Fractal Capacitor = Ascended Prototype Fractal Capacitor + 1 Gift of Ascension + 250 Globs of Ectoplasm + 1 Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence

Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence = 5 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence + 1 Mystic Coin + 1 Glob of Ectoplasm +1 1 Pile of Crystalline Dust in Mystic Forge. Alternatively, Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence also drops from L10+ Fractal of the Mist (random drop off trash mobs)

Note that this places an agony infusion slot on the backpiece in addition to the infusion slot from the ascended Prototype Fractal Capacitor. This slot is empty if you have created an infused version after the Nov 26, 2013 update. If you have done this before the update, it is filled with a +5 Agony Infusion.

gw2-beta-fractal-capacitorgw2-beta-fractal-capacitor-2

Fractal Capacitor (Infused): You can combine the Beta Fractal Capacitor with Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence, Glob of Ectoplasm, and Gift of Ascension again to make an upgraded version of the Beta Fractal Capacitor. This version is simply called Fractal Capacitor (Infused)  and have the glowy effects

  • Fractal Capacitor = Beta Fractal Capacitor + 250 Glob of Ectoplasm + Gift of Ascension + Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence

Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence = 5 Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence + 1 Mystic Coin + 1 Glob of Ectoplasm +1 Fractal Relic in Mystic Forge. Alternatively, Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence also drops from L20+ Fractal of the Mist (random drop off trash mobs)

gw2-fractal-capaitorgw2_fractal_capacitor_4

Method 2 – Gold


This method makes Ascended books and quivers and it is fairly expensive due to the amount of Glob of Ectoplasm and T6 Fine Crafting material it requires (especially if you are making the one using the Vial of Powerful Blood).

Since the Nov 26, 2013 update, players can now use 250 Bloodstone Dust instead of 1 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence to make their ascended backpieces. Infusing them, which adds the agony resist slot, still requires Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence.

General formula: 1 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence or 250 Bloodstone Dust + 250 Philosopher’s Stone/40 Crystal + 50 Glob of Ectoplasm + 250 T6 Fine Crafting material (except for venom sacs and totems)

Note: Both Philosopher’s Stone and Crystals are brought from Miyani near the Mystic Forge in Lion’s Arch. Vial of Condensed Mists Essence is a rare drop from the Fractal of Mists Dungeon

Infused Version: All of the quivers and books below can be upgraded to the Infused version by using the following recipe in the mystic forge. The infused version adds an agony infusion slot to the item, allowing you to place agony infusions onto them. This slot is empty if you have created an infused version after the Nov 26 update. If you did it before the update, the slot is filled with a +5 agony infusion.

gw2-agony-resist-slot-backpiece

Quivers – All with Offensive Infusion Slots

All of the quivers below share identical appearance and contains Offensive Infusion Slot. The Infused version contains an agony infusion slot that allow you to place agony resist infusions onto them.

Infusions


Agony infusion vs regular infusions

With the Nov 26, 2013 update, all infused ascended items (rings and backpieces) have a new agony infusion slot in addition to their regular infusion slot. This slot is for agony infusions only, which are dropped from the final boss of each fractal and can be upgraded by Artificers. If your item was infused before the Nov 26 update, they are automatically filled with +5 agony infusion. If you infused them after, this slot is empty.

gw2-agony-resist-slot

It is now important to differentiate between agony infusions which only go into the agony infusion slot on ascended items and regular infusions which can go into the regular infusion slot and can contain agony resist as well. There is now a difference in the term agony infusions which specifically apply to these new infusions and agony resist infusions which can mean any infusions (regular or agony) with agony resist.

Upgrading agony infusions

You can combine two identical agony infusions to upgrade to the next tier. For example, two +1 agony infusions can be combine together to make a single +2 agony infusion. Two +2 agony infusions can be combined together to make a single +3 agony infusion. You will need to be Artificer (100) to perform the upgrade which also requires Thermocatalytic Reagent that can be purchased from the Master Artificer near the crafting stations.

The basic +1 agony infusion is dropped from the final chest of each fractal but can be also brought on the Trading Post.

gw2-agony-resist-infusion

Regular infusions crafted in the Mystic Forge (agony resistance + additional stat)

Note: Eldritch Scoll is purchased from Miyani near the Mystic Forge in Lion’s Arch. Karka Shells, Passion Flowers, Passion Fruits  can be brought on the trading post, obtained from the new Consortium Chests, or harvested/dropped from Southsun Cove.

NOTE: With the recent update, some of the infusions only require 1 Philosopher stone rather than 50 Philosopher stones. This might be an unintended change. Double check when buying Philosopher stones. So far Vital and Resilient infusions are confirmed to use 1 Philosopher Stone

Resilient Infusion (defensive slots)

Vital Infusion (defensive slots)

Healing Infusion (defensive slot)

Malign Infusion (offensive slot)

Mighty Infusion (offensive slot)

Precise Infusion (offensive slots)

Versatile Precise Infusion (both offensive and defensive slots)

Regular infusions purchased from fractal dungeon vendor (agony resistance only)

Infusions with just agony resistance can also be purchased from the Fractal of the Mists dungeon using tokens earned from the dungeon

Regular infusions purchased from the laurel vendor (basic stat only)

The vendor is located just outside the WvW portals in Lion’s Arch. He sells 3 types of infusions, none of them containing any agony resist. They are defensive, offensive, utility types. Note that the utility infusion slot only exist on amulets.

Rings


There are three methods to obtain ascended quality rings

  • Getting them as drops from Level 10 and + Fractal of the Mist daily chests
  • Buying them from FOTM dungeon vendor using Pristine Fractal relics
  • Buying them from laurel vendor using laurels
  • Getting them from WvW rank up chests

Getting rings as daily reward chest drops

Starting with tier 10 and above, players can receive a daily bonus chest from completing even tiers containing an Ascended quality ring. At tier 20+, players can receive an Infused version of the Ascended ring (already comes with agony resistance). With the Wintersday update, players who are doing tier 26 and higher fractals will only receive infused version of ascended rings through the daily chest (i.e. non-infused Ascended rings will no longer drop from the daily chests at tier 26 and above).

Buying ascended rings

  • At the daily chest for tier 10 and higher fractals, players are guaranteed a Pristine Fractal Relic. If you have 10 of such relic, you can purchase an Ascended ring at the Golem Merchant BUY-437 inside Fractal of the Mists hub.
  • Alternatively, players can buy the same rings from the laurel vendors at 35 laurels each (earned from daily and monthly achievements). These rings are identical to the ones from the fractal dungeon vendor.
  • WvW players can purchase the same rings at their WvW laurel vendor for 25 laurels + 250 Badges of Honor each.

Upgrading ascended ring to infused ring

The Wintersday update provided us with a method to upgrade from regular ring to infused ring in the mystic forge

Infused ring = 1 Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence + 3 Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence + 5 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence + Non infused ring

Ring stat combinations

  • Note that in the February update, five new stat combinations were added to rings

gw2-ascended-rings-stats

Amulets


Ascended amulets were introduced with the Flame and Frost prelude patch. Currently, the only method to obtain them is via laurel vendors. Laurels are earned from daily and monthly achievements (1 laurel per daily, 10 per monthly). All Ascended amulets cost 30 laurels each and contain either Defensive, Offensive, or Utility infusion slots.

  • With the May 28, 2013 update, WvW players can also purchase these amulets for 20 laurels and 250 Badges of Honor each.

Here the list of ascended amulets and their stats combinations

  • Note that in the February update, five new stat combos were added to rings.

gw2-ascended-amulets-stats

Accessories


Ascended accessories were introduced with Flame and Frost: The Gathering Storm February path. There are two ways currently to obtain them. You can purchase them in the Guild Commendations vendor near the bank in Lion’s Arch for 5 old and 12 Guild Commendations earned via Guild Missions. Alternatively, you can purchase them from the laurel vendor at a price of 40 laurels and 50 Globs of Ectoplasm.

Here is a list of Ascended Accessories and their stat combinations. Note that like rings, you have two accessory slots.

Account bound when you make them. Souldbound on equip. I have the Yakkington book already and 4 extra mist essences.

The vital and versatile infusions can also be bought in Fractals of the Mist (Mistlock Observatory) for 75 and 225 Fractal relics, respectively.

The recipe for the versatile precise infusion does not work. I have tried in every combination and checked and double checked to make sure i had exactly what is called for here.

Someone over at Reddit discovered a book called “Book of Secrets” with 53 power, 35 Precision, 5% critical damage and a defensive slot. See http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/13e6wq/mystic_forge_a_book_secret/ – poster says “The recipe I used: 250 Powerful Blood 50 Glob of Ectoplasm 40 Crystals 1 Vial of Condensed Essence”

Also in the comments, someone mentions making the same item but with an offensive infusion slot, the “Quiver of Swift Flight” (no recipe is given, unfortunately).

I am going to guess the quiver of swift flight is going to be 250 Powerful Blood 50 Glob of Ectoplasm 250 pilosopher stones 1 Vial of Condensed Essence based on the patterns for the other items. (crystals switch with philosopher stones). If it is wrong I will remove it

I can confirm that the Quiver of Swift Flight is made with: 1 Vial of Condensed Essence + 50 ectos + 250 powerful blood + 240(not 250) philosopher’s stones.

“1 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence, 240 Philosopher’s Stone, 50 Glob of Ectoplasm, 250 Vicious Fang in Mystic Forge
Total Stats: 56 Power, 35 Toughness, 35 Vitality, empty Offensive Infusion Slot ”

It means if ill switch Philosopher’s stone with Crystals ill get tome with power,tough,vit and defensive infusion slot??

Thanks in advance

You should based on the recipes we seen so far. The quiver and book recipes are identical with identical stats except for the switching of crystal/philosopher’s stone and the defensive/offensive infusion slot.

Is it actually intended that the defensive infusion of +5 agony is 75 tokens and the omni +5 agony is 225? I just made the quiver and am wondering if this is intended, seeing as the quiver has a offensive slot I’m forced to spend 225 tokens rather as the 75 I would’ve needed to spend if I made the book? 😮

Versatile Malign Infusion (5 condition, 5 agony resist): 2 Eldritch Scrolls, 50 mystic coins, 100 passion flowers, 250 powerful venom sacs

Thank you for this great contribution , alot of good info in here. I have a dumb question though im playing a thief is the “Quiver of Swiftness” Total Stats: 56 Power, 35 Precision, 5% Critical Damage suitable for a thief ? Are there more recipes to be discovered?

Could you use two rings with different names but the same stats? Or same stats but different infusion slots? Ie crystalline band and vine of the pale tree or crystalline band and bagh nakh? Has anyone tried who can confirm one way out the other?

1 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence, 40 Crystal, 50 Glob of Ectoplasm, 250 Vicious Fang
Edit: without the slot item ofc

“Koss on Koss” book
1 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence, , 50 Glob of Ectoplasm, 40 Crystal, 250 Vicious Fang in Mystic Forge

CONFIRMATION

Malign Infusion (offensive slot?)

1 Eldritch Scroll, 20 Mystic Coin, 250 Passion Fruits, 100 Powerful Venom Sacs

Here is Koss on Koss, defensive back. You craft it with 1 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence, 40 Crystal, 50 Glob of Ectoplasm, 250 Vicious Fang in Mystic Forge.

Stats are full Power/Vitality/Toughness

Precise Infusion (offensive slots)

1 Eldritch Scroll , 20 Mystic Coin, 250 Passion Fruits, 100 Vicious Claw

CONFIRMED 20 coins instead of 30.

Hey guys, does this back item goes soulbound to a character? Because I don’t have so many skill points on my main character, made some weapons that’s why.

Rings don’t even show up in the mystic as Baezyl already stated. Jake, you are referring to backpacks which was not asked about and the guide clearly depicts anyway..

Recently did fractals lvl 10 and acquired this little gem. Haven’t seen on forum so thought I would post. Since I’m a necromancer it’s near on perfect 🙂

ok Dulfy thanks for your answer. Now I got another question. Do I get a ring only from 10 lvl of fotm with daily? Or I can still get it as daily from lvl 12 and etc?

Is some one aware is it’s possible at this moment to get ascended gear with healing power on it in a other combination as just all possible stats on one ring?

You can’t see it anymore, but it has a defensive infusion slot. Dropped from the difficulty 6 if I remember correctly….It’s been a while ^^

So is anyone else upset that there are no rings that follow the knights stat distribution (power, precision, toughness)? I think this is a huge disappointment for people who geared their stats using those accessories.

Been doing 2 dailies every day (besides first), still not a single god dang ring. Friend has 3 of them, 1 tossed to an alt that has never stepped foot in FotM. Thanks Anet for still using RNG progression in 2012 (what happened to the token system you launched with?). Half my group is ready for 30+, the rest of us a can’t do anything but pray and cry and pray.

post is old 2 months, and as he(Zippo by that I mean) was doing 2 dailys in a row, and rest of a group was ready for lvl 30+… what does that tell you? That he was doing 10 & 20(24/26/28 in those days had drops of infused) every day!

Made with an ascended Prototype Fractal Capacitor with an Offensive Slot and 250 Glob of Ectoplasm, 1 Gift of Ascension, 1 Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence

Forgot to mention it fits in with Glob of Ectoplasm and Shard of Coagulated Mists Essence, and before i made it i saw the Shard of Coagulated Mists Essence fits with Glob of Ectoplasm and Gift of Ascension, so it may be upgradeable a second time with 250 Glob of Ectoplasm, 1 Gift of Ascension, 1 Shard of Coagulated Mists Essence, i will farm a Gift of Ascension to test it, but im short on money for 250 Glob of Ectoplasm…(and thats the amount i assume it needs) so someone else has to test it

Did you made the infused version of the Prototype Fractal Capacitor with 250 ectos? I am asking because the ascended version doesn’t need ectos so I am a bit confused.

yes, i first bought me the exotic one for 1350 tokens, used it with the
gift, 1 vial of mists essence and 40 crystals to an ascended. Then i used the ascended one with 250 ectos, 1 gift and 1 glob of mists essence to the infused version, if i repeat some stuff here i already said in the other reply im sry, but i just wanted to make it clear

Hello,

Today I got the “Solaria, Circle of the Sun” ring. But now I’m wondering if I should put my gem in it already or wait untilI I’ve upgraded it to the Infused version and then add the gem.

Basicly my question is: Do you lose the gem in the Infusion slot when you upgrade the item to “Infusion mode”.

Because the gems arent that cheap to make and it would be a waste of money/resources.

I really hope someone knows the answer to my question.

Thanks in advance

Are prec, vit and condition the only stats available at the moment for the infusion slot? Anyone here know if there exists an Infusion with the +crit dmg% stat? Or should we just wait it out since not all recipes have been discovered yet?

If I put an Infusion Gem in an Backpiece and I want to upgrade that Backpiece to Infused Mode, will I lose my Gem ?
Seeing how Infusion Gems arent that cheap, I dont want to waste any.

Has anyone verified this yet? and know the upgrade stat bonus?

Fractal Capacitor?: Fadjon, the owner of the Infused Beta Fractal Capacitor, reports that it is possible to combine the Beta Fractal Capacitor with Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence,
Glob of Ectoplasm, and Gift of Ascension again to make an upgraded
version of the Beta Fractal Capacitor. This version might simply be
called Fractal Capacitor and might have the glow shown on the released
image below”

I accidently made a quiver first, but i want a Fractal Capacitor (Infused) back piece. So i was wondering if i transmute with an Prototype Fractal Capacitor with my quiver (no infused yet) then use the Fractal capacitor method, would that work??

So the prototype fractal compacitor can be upgraded 3 times vial/glob/shard can the books and quivers also be upgraded 3 times or only vial and glob?

Does the infused versions of the quivers and books have different skins or other effects than the basic version? And is there a Crafting Stafe 3 for Quivers and Books too where you need 1 shard, etc…?

just a question about the grinding backpieces
there is the capacitor that gives +16 vit/tough and another that gives +16vit/tough +22power
will the forged backpiece get magic find as bonus for the one with only 2 stats as it is on the rings or is it just to screw up players?

Infusions are for infusion slots, but you have to look, if your item has got an offensive or defensive infusion slot.

i don’t get it, an item says its infused , but it still has an unused infusion slot, does that mean for those items you can double infuse it?

Yes, thats why you can get rings, which still have an infusion included, only as drops from lvl 20 and further. So they can have 10 agony resistance total, and atm. player can have maximum 30 agony resistance.

Hello,

i ve got a question about the Prototype Fractal Capacitor.

If I put a infusion in the above mentioned item and wanna upgrade the capacitor to the beta fractal capacitor do I get the infusion back or is it still in the beta capacitor or even destroyed?

Thanks a lot about an answer =)

Has the recipe for Precise Infusion changed? Can’t seem to combine eldritch scroll, 250 passion fruits, 100 vicious claws and 20 mystic coins in the forge.

apparently all infusion recipes have changed from needing 50 skillpoints (eldritch scroll) to 5 skillpoints (50 philosopher stones)

I have a question for those upgraded their backs,
I have made the book version of the back and soulbound it
If I upgraded it to infused version
Will it come soulbound on use?
Or its still soulbound on my char

Hey Dulfy, ty for the credit, and for liking my image enough to use it 🙂

Keep up the great work <3

PS: grats on the ingame character!!!

the single philosopher’s stone recipies probably aren’t intentional, most require 50 philo stones now (100 for the versatile infusions).

Hey I just tried to craft the resilient infusion according to the recipe posted on your site and found out theres an error after trying to get the ingredients to work for a while. The new recipe is 1 philospher stone, 20 mystic coins, 250 karka shells, and 100 armor scales.. They changed the eldritch scroll requirement to 1 philsopher stone. Just thought to let you know so you can prevent other people from making the same mistake i did ><

Does the Exotic back item (Prototype Fractal Capacitor, 1350 Fractal Relics) come with an unused upgrade slot, or does it come socketed with an exquisite jewel?

Thanks for the reply. I’m not asking about the Ascended back item though, I’m asking about the Exotic one (the Prototype Fractal Capacitor that costs 1350 Fractal Relics). Does it come with an unused upgrade slot?

I see. That’s very weird since all the back items (and other trinkets) in the game have an upgrade slot.
So they are basically forcing you to craft the Exotic item into the Ascended version just to have the “gemstone’s stats”.

if you were to put a “versatile simple infusion” in one of your rings or back, would you still be able to upgrade the said ring or back item at a later stage?

someone has said that it is possible to do so but you will lose your infusion which is really only 75 relics but can really help

i was trying to down grade my shards of essence but i cant seem to put the master salvage kit to mystique forge a little help please ;(

I was wondering… to make a “rampager’s quiver”. Is it possible to add 1 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence, 240 Philosopher’s Stone, 50 Glob of Ectoplasm, 250 Powerful Venom Sac in Mystic Forge and get power precision condition damage? I can’t see this recipe anywhere.

“Downgrade: 1 Shard or Glob of Mist Essence + 1 Mystic Coin + 1 Fractal Relic + 1 Master Salvage Kit = 3 of lower tier essence.”

Is the result of this recipe random or does 1 shard downgrade to a predictable result?

Addition to previous post, I’d guess 1 shard always downgrades to 3 globs and 1 glob always to 3 vials but would be cool if someone could confirm that.

Something I found out last night when upgrading my ascended Red Ring of Death to Red Ring of Death (Infused) is that upgrading the ring essentially makes it a new item. As said earlier by others, this has the effect of destroying any applied infusion, but it has yet another implication that could be usable for some people: it makes the ring account bound / soulbound on use again, so even if you used it on your character before the upgrade, you can use it on another character after the upgrade. If one has enough vials / globs / shards it can be a way to pass used ascended rings to an alt once a ring has been replaced by a better one for instance.

So the best thing to do with mystic toilet infusions is to only infuse the rings as playing the FOTM for the drops required is no big deal
BUT Spending the 250 ecto’s (100g) for a +5 AR on the back piece is just a little excessive.

5 March 2013 i tryed today to make an ascendent back (power, precison, critical damage) with offensive slot and it doens’t work, do i need more than 40 crystal?

Did you use this recipe in the mystic forge? 1x Prototype Fractal Capacitor + 1x Gift of the Ascension+ 40 Crystals + 1 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence

So as of now 45 AR is the highest you can get? 10 back piece, 5 (x2) earrings, 5 amulet, 10 (x2) rings?

Hi, Dulfy. First of all thank you for this awesome guide. A question though. I have a basic ascended back piece. I want to transmute it with the plush quaggan backpack. Will i lose the backpack cover when i upgrade the back piece? THank you.

If you use infused Quiver + 250 Glob of Ectoplasm + Gift of Ascension + Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence, can you get glowy effects?

So the final upgraded version of the quiver actually has better stats than the fractal capacitator?!

Is this working

Offensive Slot = ****Guild Backpack**** + 1x Gift of the Ascension+ 40 Crystals + 1 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence

To get an Ascended Guild Backpack

Plz help me out and tell me if I am right:
_So the ascended rings you get from fractals +10. Open infusion slot, no AR included.
_To get the infused rings (which has already +5 AR and open slot) you need to to fractals +20.

To do fractals +20 you need at least 10 AR (?). So I am quite obliged to infuse the crappy rings (which will cost alot) before I can farm FOTM+20. To then throw the crappy ring with slotted AR away for the infused ring I loot. To then infuse that one again?! Is there no cheaper method?

Or is the best way just to buy/make the infused backpiece that gives me +10AR fully upgraded and leave infusion of rings when I looted the good ones?

silly question but, can you upgrade ascended items when you buy them with laurel/guild commendations?

I was going to ask…if the amulet and accessories are infused in the same manner as the rings. If you can’t, why is there a slot for them? Unless there is another way maybe? If you can, are they the same mats as the rings?

You can’t infuse amulet and accessories as far as I know. The slot has nothing to do with being infused. It just allow you to attach infusions (not same as infused) to them.

So as of now 45 AR is the highest you can get? 10 back piece, 5 (x2) earrings, 5 amulet, 10 (x2) rings? Just wondering cause I have some work to do lol

Hi. can you use the same ascended ring twice? (Abeldern’s Royal Signet Ring) I purchased 2 and can not use the other.

What Dulfy said.

BUT.

If you infuse both you can’t use them both again, you’ll have 1 infused and 1 NOT infused, that’s the only way to wear both.
You should have bought/get the Offensive/Defensive version, i.e. same stats.

So if you buy the back piece with gold it becomes that quiver or book. Then when you infuse it, it turns into that glowy back piece? Or can you only get that glowly back piece from grinding? Sorry I’m getting a little confused.

it’s been a while since I infused mt rings in the forge. i was wondering by any chance do they become unused, like no longer soulbound upon infusiing them in the forge. I can’t remember it was so long ago.

Yes, after infusing a ring that was soulbound to your character it becomes account bound after infusing it, allowing you to put it on a different character

a freshly crafted Quiver of a Thousand Arrows is now a choose the stats (from a list) to give it but there is no assasin stat but you can make it into celestial

I’m very confused about this whole ascended/infused deal. 95% of my GW2 time is solo; should I not even think about getting this stuff? I guess I can buy stuff from the laurel vendors, but I’d like to get the glowy fractal capacitor for my elementalist; am I out of luck as a not-ridiculously-wealthy solo player?

To get these backpieces, you have to run fractals. The ones that require the least amount of items from fractals are also the most expensive to make. Also if you want the glowing backpiece, you have to run alot of fractals and have alot of gold or ectos. There isn’t a way around it unfortunately 🙁

Ah well, I can live without it. 🙂 I bought my T3 asura cultural armour and am all but flat broke, so it’ll be a while before I can swing anything involved heavy cash outlay!

I wish their was another way to get laurels in the game apart from PVP and the dallies. Even the monthly’s just do not seem to me like enough laurels to earn those ascended items. It still takes 35 days to earn laurels or 15 days if you do dallies and PVP dallies. This is way to long to accomplish.

Buy one of the backpieces from the TP, such as Quaggan, Charr etc.
Make sure it’s the full set.

Open the bag and you’ll get backpiece straps + skin. The backpiece straps are account bound. Transmute capacitor to the account bound straps then put in bank, retrieve capacitor with your other account and there you go. You can then transmute again if you want stats on it.

Just a heads up, I’ve been getting Ascended Rings from WvW rank chests. I’ve picked up 3 over the weekend (I used 2 laurels/50 badges to buy taste of liquid world xp) and picked one of them up from hitting rank 44 w/o using liquid xp. Ettinband (defensive) and Healing signet (offensive), as well as the Circle of Light, which allows you to choose your own stats.

Dulfy, is it possible for you to confirm that the Vial recipes for Quiver of a Thousand Arrows and There with Yakkington still work, and that they still allow you to choose what stats you want when you get them?

There with Yakkington: A Traveler’s Tale. At December 29th still works? I want the direrabid stats. Ty Dulfy And your tema forma tour amazing work.

I can’t upgrade beta fractal capacitor to fractal capacitor (infused). I can’t see the backpiece in the mystic forge.

yes i have it unequipped but i cant find it in the mystic forge inv window so that i can drag and drop it…i guess i’ll have to report it thanks.

but… what further upg. can u add to the beta capac. ? i mean, if its beta hasnt it alrdy been upgraded to infused and then finaly to beta (for the glow) ? can it go through more?

Everytime i try and put a second “versatile simple infusion,” into my remaining “unused agony infusion slot,” in my “beta fractal capicitor (infused)” it just tries to override my first slotted one?

hey, i just wanted to ask if the following will work. my point is to make a cleric build back item with beta fract capac. appeareance. so… i make yakkington, i select the cleric stats (or not…!/?) then i make 1 fractal capac i transmute it over it… then can i upgrade it to infused and then further to beta fractal capac?? ty

For all people wondering.
I have infused a Transmuted Quiver of a Thounsand Arrows, It had my wings of the sunless skin on them. After infusing at the MF it came out blank without stats so i had to re-pick the stats AND without my beloved skin.
after a chat with Anet i got the skin in the mail BUT u get you to re-pick your stats so HURRAY to that.

P.S the stat selector back piece can still be crafted after the patch.

Hi. This might be a stupid question but I just wanted to make sure if I would be able to do this. I have an infused ring with +5AR (not versatile). Can I put a WvW infusion without overriding what’s already in it? Thanks!

If the ring has no infusion on it and it is simply infused then yes you can put the infusion in. Otherwise it will override w/e infusion you had on it previously

Thanks! Still hoping though it won’t override but i guess I have to craft (if I have gold and ingredients) to get +5 stat. Thanks again!

Actually I made a mistake, I thought you were talking about the regular infusions. If you are talking about the agony infusions on the new slot created by infusing the ring, then no the wvw infusion won’t override it since they occupy two different slots. Can you verify that you have 2 different slots? One should be for agony infusions and the other for regular infusions

Not anymore. In one of the patches last year they removed the automatic +5 infusion you get when you infuse a ring. It now just add a slot you can put infusionsin

Wow! very prompt response (very commendable site) xD.

Can I still create/infuse a ring like on the first screenshot and make it like this? (see screenshot below) .. thanks again!

sorry. create/infuse a ring like on my 2nd screenshot and make it look like my last screenshot. thanks!

So maybe I am missing something here, or maybe I am being terribly blonde, but how does one forge shards of crystallized mist essence now that fractal relics are part of the wallet? I tried to forge one earlier, but was unable to. GW2wiki listed piles of crystalline dust as an ingredient, but that didn’t work, either. Can they no longer be forged?

Just FYI, recipe has changed to–
Downgrade: 1 Shard or Glob of Mist Essence + 1 Mystic Coin + 1 1 Pile of Crystalline Dust + 1 Master Salvage Kit = 3 of lower tier essence.
Is now –
Downgrade: 1 Shard or Glob of Mist Essence + 1 Mystic Coin + 1 Pile of Crystalline Dust + 25 Master Salvage Kit = 3 of lower tier essence.
**Note that change is in dust and salvage kits**

Hey Dulfy. In your topic you state; ‘i.e. non-infused Ascended rings will no longer drop from the daily chests at tier 26 and above.’ I assume you mean for Fractals? Because since patch I received a non-infused ring several times. I don’t play below level 30. Is this supposed to be?
