GW2: Watchwork Portal Device from Aug 6 update will be similar to Mesmer portal

The Watchwork Portal Device craftable from recipes obtained from the Aug 6 update will resemble a Mesmer portal but it will one time use and the recipe is quite rare.


Watchwork tech is the latest and greatest innovation in Tyria. Watchwork parts can be used in new crafting recipes or as currency in the Crown Pavilion to buy items like new rune and sigil recipes, Watchknight Tonics, or the new Sovereign Weapon Set. You might even find the recipe to assemble a Watchwork Portal Device, allowing you to create a personal portal!

The portal is a one-time use consumable that effectively allows you to use a skill that is similar to the mesmer’s portal. We recognize that it’s a very powerful item, so the recipe is quite rare and takes considerable resources to manufacture.

More clarification:

  • It’s an artificer recipe
  • You can trade the output of the recipe between characters on your account
  • The recipe makes a one-time use item, it does not unlock a new skill
  • This is not going to replace a mesmer in your party

It’s not allowed in WvW or sPvP.

Also to be clear, the recipe is exotic and tradeable, but the output of said recipe is not.

    wvw will never be the same again, feel bad for my Mesmer after such a long chain of events has seen, almost, everything that made them unique taken away.

    • Amileia

      You cannot use the consumable in WvW or sPvP, as stated by devs on the official forums.

    So what exactly is the point of this??

  • Yowazzup

    It’s a lame item guys. Not worth crafting at all. Leveling a mesmer is less expensive:D And always love your mesmer.

    OMG have u seen what it takes to create 2 of them?
    250 watchwork sprockets
    2 master tuning crystals
    1 charged Lodestone
    5 Orichalkum Ignot
    Are they serious? SO USELESS!!!
