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


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.


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


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.


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)


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.


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.


Bowyer’s Delight

Endless Quiver

Quiver of a Thousand Arrows

Quiver of Swiftness

Sights Be True

Books – All with Defensive Infusion Slots

All of the books/tomes below share identical appearance and contains Defensive Infusion Slot. The Infused version already have +5 agony resistance in them in addition to the Defensive Infusion Slot.

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.


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.


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)

Versatile Malign 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.

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



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.



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.


  • Dendail

    awesome job Dulfy!

  • nicky

    Are these things bound to the crafter or account?

    • Ethos Ooleg

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

  • Zafyii

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

    • Those are simple infusions with just +5 agony resistance but has no other stats. The crafted one provide other stats as well, even if very minor

      • Nick

        got any examples of crafted ones?

        • yes it is posted there under vital infusion and versatile precise infusion

  • Pretty sure Gift of Ascension can be used for better Ascended gear. I didn’t find Passion Flowers on the trading post. Wait & see.

  • roy mercer

    not bound!

  • Innox

    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.

    • anyone else can confirm that the recipe does not work? If so I will remove it. Thanks 🙂

      • Grim

        Doesnt work

    • can you try with Vicious Claw instead and see if it works?

  • Collin Ang

    does anyone know the recipe for the power/precition/crit type of quiver?

    • looks like it will be Quiver of Swiftness

  • Charlatan of SoR

    Someone over at Reddit discovered a book called “Book of Secrets” with 53 power, 35 Precision, 5% critical damage and a defensive slot. See – 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).

    • Thanks! I went to bed when they posted it so I will add it now

    • 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

      • Ryhpez

        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.

        • cool ty for the confirmation 😀

    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.

  • Lady Jane

    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? 😮

    • Good point, it does seem quiver users have a disadvantage

  • Sven Volfeid

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

    • ty

    • Shunraa

      off, def or omni?

      • Versatile is omni

  • Rea

    Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence can actually drop in fotm, so there are probably more mystic forge recipes for it

  • Johnny28

    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?

    • if you are going for all glass cannon max dps build, I think that is the best there is

      • haros the reaper

        acended rings are unique so u can have one of them on you. i suggest get the p/t/v for your other slot.

        • haros the reaper

          sorry was the quiver not the rings my mistake

        • kp

          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?

          • yes you certainly can for both situations.

  • mimimi

    This Quivers are so expensive 🙁

  • Guys, i have a question. If I upgrade my backpiece with Precise Infusion already in, will it removed from upgraded backpiece?

    • good question, anyone else know? I havn’t tried it myself and I am indeed curious

  • Valdil

    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.

    • The back piece is account bound when you first make it in the forge and becomes soulbound when you equip it

  • Nick

    Has anyone tried to infuse a ring using mystic forge? It’s possible or?

    • NoNameANN

      Imo. Yes. I didn’t try, but – these items are exists.

      • Power

        You can’t infuse 10-19 rings, you have to loot it already infused in 20-29

        • rea

          wished it were “10-19” rings
          you can actually get t1 rings on 20+ daily

        • Jake

          Incorrect, you can infuse them in mystic forge. You do need 250 ectos, however

          • kanoja

            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..

    • Baezyl

      I unequipped my pink ring and opened the mystic forge but did not see it in the list of compatible items.

  • Mad

    Don’t make the “Koss on Koss” at the moment.
    It’s the wrong recipe.

    • Mad

      Sorry, i was wrong. DOnt mind this

  • Dennis

    More for the list!

    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?

    • not sure, I will know tonight when I run level 12 and I will let you know 🙂

      • Valdil

        I checked this there is a chance on daily to get an ascended ring at levels 10,12,14,16,18 etc

      • Joxzy

        yes also another one (should i keep posting these infused ring or?)

  • morrigana

    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?

  • Valas Hune

    here’s another ring from t2

    • T2 as in L20+ fractals? If so it is not infused?

      • Nick

        T2 is 10-19. T3 is 20+

        • ah ok, I don’t think we have a fixed convention for naming the fractal levels yet so I thought T2 meant L20+

  • Skazi

    Anyone know if there is a backpack with healing (clerics) available ?

  • MS

    Is that all quivers can be worn by all professions regardless if they can wear a bow or not?

    • Indeed, don’t need to use a bow to use a quiver 😀

  • Name

    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 ^^

    • difficulty 6? you mean 16?

  • Lady Jane

    2 more rings my bf and I got tonight for the list 🙂 Also, gj Dulfy for all this info, tyvm!

  • Ghostly
  • Chris

    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.

    • Nick

      Ascended rings are still dropping. Give it time.

  • Blu

    I just saw in the official forum that it is possible to craft ascended backpieces using the backpiece from the FotM vendor. You migth need around 1850 tokens, but no gold.
    From the wiki:

  • zzled

    There’s apparently an alternate way to get backpieces without T6 crafting mats.

    prototype fractal capacitor (1350 fractal relics) + vial of mist essence + gift of ascend (500 fractal relics) + 40 crystals/240(?)philo stones = prototype ascend type back piece !


    • thanks, I will add it in 😀

      • zzled

        Awesome stuff.

        PS: Your site rocks.

  • zippo

    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.

    • Mysterious Fractals User

      You have to do lvl 10+ fractals daily for ascended rings. I got 2 so far.

      • Kazile

        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!

        • Light

          Which means he has more then enough pristine relics to buy the damn things.

    I crafted precise infusion with 1 scroll and vicious fangs so you ought to correct that recipe.

  • Fadjon

    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

    • Fadjon

      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.

      • Fadjon

        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

    • thank you! so it looks like the infused version doesn’t glow either. The next tier must glow then? 😀

  • Darkkiz


    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

    • not sure if the rings can be upgraded like the backpieces. Maybe someone with the ring can confirm/deny. I have gone 4 chests in a row without a single ring 🙁

      • Wouter

        The rings cannot be put into the mystic forge.
        The infused versions seem to be available only from 20+ levels

  • sNiper Eye

    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?

    • Don’t think all the recipes are known yet so I would wait and see 😀

      • sNiper Eye

        Alright thanks Dulfy. Great work by the way!

  • Darkkiz

    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.

    • Baezyl

      Yes, you will lose it. Happened to me upgrading quiver.

    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”

  • Ath

    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??

    more infused ring

  • YaHiKoDrG

    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…?

    • No infused version does not have a different skin and I don’t believe there is another upgrade to them using the shards

    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?

    • it is 2 stats cuz the gw2db tooltip I used is wrong. It should have 3 stats ingame

    • Ophilon

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

      • Lin

        True. Besides infusion for deffensive slot costs only 75 FR, but for offensive slot 225 FR 🙁

              but sure

  • sushi

    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?

    • Ophilon

      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.

    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 =)

    • it will be destroyed

  • Lukemia

    Reciper for infused ring on mystic forge are: 1 shard, 3 globe and 5 vials + a non infused ring 😀

  • Tihane

    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.

  • Tihane

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

    • okay ty, correcting them now 😀

  • Wykyng

    recipe to make infused rings any ring + 3 coagulated + 5 vials + 1 shard = infused ring !!! tada!… Wykyng.

    • Fallen

      what shard is it????

      • it is the 1 Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence. I posted the recipe for it at the top of the rings section. Guess people didn’t see it

  • Tartarus

    hmmm apparently i couldnt downgrade Shards as i couldt put master kit into MF

    • Tartarus

      and Resilent Infusion only took me 1 PHIL. STONE. YES 1 STONE ONLY. could be a bug tho

  • horo

    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

    • zil

      i jus did my book one , it goes back to unbound and says soulbound on use

    for master salvage kit, what kind is that one? bcos i used the one from the merchant and forge dint show it

    I just made a Vital Infusion and it only used 1 Philosopher’s Stone.

    • cool ty, i updated it 🙂

      • Ciramorn

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

  • Tonkii

    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 ><

    • ah they changed resilient infusion as well, I thought it was just the vital infusion. Sorry about that

  • The Void

    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?

    • ascended items do not have upgrade slots, only infusion slots

      • The Void

        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?

        • sorry skimmed over the question, I just brought it for my warrior and it has no upgrade slots.

          • The Void

            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”.

            • looks like it 🙁

    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

    • You can upgrade it yes and you will lose your infusion during the upgrade but like they said, it is only 75 relics.

  • lazaros

    Do the infused versions of the gold backs change appearance in any way?

    great guide! thank you!

  • Fuss

    The method to infuse amulets is the same as rings?

    • Don’t think they can be infused yet. People who got the ascened triforge pendant says they can’t be infused currently.

  • ThePappaBear

    Versatile Precise Infusion its working i confirm that

  • Abysser

    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.

    • Nope, don’t think so. That is all the backpieces available atm, they said they are adding more stat combos in the future

  • Aprinz

    Purchasing a ring will cost you 35 Laurels, not 30 ;).

  • Zonko

    Anyone already buyed an amulet and tried to infuse it? does it work the same way as on the rings?

    • It cannot be infused like the rings. I don’t think it can be even infused

      • eu dicot

        it can, i used a simple versatile infusion on it for the 5ar

        • That is not infusing it. Infusing is modifying it so the item comes with agony resistance without anything inserted into it.

  • Paradox

    “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?

    • Paradox

      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.

      • It is a fixed recipe. I have downgraded it before.

  • Paradox

    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.

  • Has anyone tried to infuse an amulet in the Mystic forge?

  • 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.

  • Blast Beat

    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

  • still no infusions for accessories or amulets right? 🙁 amulets and some acessories are infused in the DB though. currently at 40 AR wish i could have more

    • Not yet

    • Jesse Primeaux

      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.

    • Not sure sorry, I would upgrade it first and then transmute

  • Simon

    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?

    • Ya make backpiece first, no need to infuse the rings you get unless you get one with good stats.

  • White Kitten

    Correction for you: Healing Infusion requires 50 philosopher’s stones.

  • halipoo

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

    • The rings you can infuse them I think but not the others as far as I know.

      • Andi

        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.

  • Jesse Primeaux

    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

  • Yale Hunter

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

    • Make one infused and you can wear both

    • Guest

      What Dulfy said.


      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.

  • Yaakele

    best way to infuse your jewels for a starter of fotm?

  • Fury Bladeborne

    Fractal relics can no longer be used in the forge due to being in
    wallet. Found out that these have been replaced by Piles of Crystaline
    Dust in recipes at the Mystic Forge at I tested by downgrading a Glob of Coagulated Mist Essence using the recipe in the guide and replacing the dust. It did work.

    • cool ty for the update

  • Guest

    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.

    • Guest

      You only get that glowing back piece from grinding.
      The quivers and books WILL stay the same after the infusion.

  • koyomi k

    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.

    • Mike S

      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

  • Ruke D

    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

    • u6po

      but, if u infuse dat quiver, will it remain those stats or it’ll be PTV?

  • Sarigar

    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 🙁

      • Sarigar

        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!

  • Cale

    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.

    • Whaka

      It’s 35 days for both. You can only get 1 laurel every day (excluding monthly) even if you do both PvE and PvP.

  • zarko

    Some1 know how to move Fractal Capacitor (Infused) to another character .:(

    • Whaka

      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.

      • Elena Callegari

        note that you’ll transmute ONLY the look, not the properties (stats, infusions) of the ascended backpiece

  • Mailune Rose

    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.

    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

      • Marvin

        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

          • Marvin

            Let me share a screenshot, please check.

            • Ya the wvw infusion won’t override it since it will occupy the defensive infusion slot

              • 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

              • Marvin

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

                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?

  • Viet

    Agony resistance good for what?

  • Erenrai

    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**

  • Silvyah

    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?
