    Hey Dulfy, thanks as usual for your great work.
    Do you have any more pictures of the new Bifrost effects?
    I have difficulties to see the differences to the current one…
    thanks 🙂

    • Sorry these are the best I can find, I don’t notice any difference either to the current one 🙁

      • ger_brian

        Oh okay, thanks anyway 🙂
        We’ll see on Tuesday, I doubt that they just said they changed it without doing anything.

  • Archexecutor

    Does this Magic Find stay maxed out indefinitely once pumped up, or does it need constant replenishing?

    • Ya it doesn’t go away, it is permanent.

      • Pessimissed

        What I am wondering though is what we will do with all the Essences of Luck we find once we reach the 300% cap.

      • Archexecutor

        Thank you very much 🙂

  • art vandalay

    Thanks, looks like interesting changes!

  • Latinkuro

    is the deldrimor steel an open world node gather thing or what it doesnt say

  • Ave Marie

    Hello Dulfy first of all, thank you very much for your great work. Do you know about any visual effect update on The Dreamer?

    • For dreamer they said new footfalls.

  • Chri90

    I’ve seen the livestream, but I don’t understood: all GSes have the same skin?? and where is it the zerker stat? Oo

    • Well we havn’t seen all the ascended weapons at this point but it is likely the first iteration of ascended weapons will have same skin but different colors depending on the stats you pick. Berserker is likely the primary power one.

      • Bajden

        The red one (power one) is Power, Vitality and Crit Damage

        • Yulan

          For what I understood every Ascended weapon with Power as a main stat (ie. Soldiers, Berserker) will be red. The most valuable attribute will determine the color.

          • Chri90

            I understood the variant of color due to the different stats, but I’m interested to know if there are others GS skin like different models

            • Pessimissed

              It is possible that these are the only skins from day one, and they add more after they implement ascended armor, but I could be wrong.

  • Van Wayden

    Hey Dulfy, i have the legendary shortbow The Dreamer, do u think it will be updated too?

    • For dreamer they said new footfalls.

      • Van Wayden

        OMG, hopefully 🙂 thank u <3

      • Van Wayden

        Any pictures before the update?

        • They did not provide any unfortunately. The dev livestreaming it is a guardian so they can’t use bows.

  • random person

    Thanks dulfy!!! <3

  • Ferrum

    Wow. I was hoping for Frostfang to get an update, but FOOTBALLS?? ANet needs to get to know their target audience.

    (This was a joke. Please refer to the typo by Frostfang >.>)

  • Trix

    Essences of luck salvage rate is not affected by type of kit!
    Confirmed here:

  • Frea

    The official youtube video says the quality of salvage kit has no effect on chance or quality of ‘essence of luck’.

  • Moerfi

    Great…..even more annoying legendary effects….

    • Bankstercide

      The problem is less that and more the fact that we STILL don’t have an effective Graphics Effect option. The one we were given recently is utter shite.

  • Pessimissed

    I must say, I like the new system for buying recipes. Saves time searching through the list trying to find what you want.

  • Bankstercide

    With these new time gated crafting mats, i’m actually surprised that they didn’t incorporate the existing time gated crystal mats. Perhaps in a future patch?

    P.S.: Where is my Exotic Craftable Breathing Mask? Not having one kinda puts a damper on my enthusiasm for underwater gearing. More options to create underwater-friendly builds would also be nice.

  • Colin

    I dont see the Predator mentioned 🙁 any update for that?

    • No mention of predator

      • I was hoping that The Predator footfalls would get fixed. Right now when you run up a hill, they don’t show. Maybe Anet will surprise us.

  • i wan acc bound legendary

    Transmuted legendaries: You will be provided with a Transmutation Splitter in the mail. It will convert your transmuted legendary back so you can receive all the cool new updates.

    what about people who used multiple transmutations on their Legendary? Will they be able to get the original weapon back or will the Crystal just separate those two so you get Legendary weapon and the latest transmuted weapon.

    • Hmm not sure, they didn’t go much into it 🙁 Make a post on the forums and see maybe if a dev will respond though 😀

  • Ares Zax

    That’s a LOT to take in. :O I suppose it’s a good thing that none of my crafters are up to 400 yet so I don’t need to worry about this for a while.

    • lmaonade

      isn’t that a bad thing since it’s time gated?

  • Mina

    Have they mentioned any updates for the Minstrel?

    • Mina

      Nevermind, I see the response up there 🙂 CTRL+F “Minstrel” failed me >_>

  • meaning

    so if i transmute my legendary to white crap to get it to another character will i be able to get it back to legendary status on my new char?

    is that what shes saying? i really want to change the character which is wearing it, but i dont know if i got it right. pls help me im desperate!

    • VitalSuit

      From what the devs said, yeah. Anyone that made a legendary (or has a legendary) will get an item called a transmutation splitter. It’s a 1 time use item that allows you to split the skin and revert it back to what it was made. This can be used on any transmuted item but it’s intended for your legendary.

  • DJRiful

    So what will happen if I have Incinerator in my off-hand that gives footfall and now my Meteorlogicus scepter gives the lightning footfall. Will I lose my incinerator effects?

    • VitalSuit

      Mainhand legendary will always overwrite the offhand legendary’s footprints.

  • Tash

    Hi, as english isn’t my 1st language i might me completely wrong but i listened to a small part of Dev’s Livestream yesterday and what i heard was: ” the type of salavage kit you use will affect the amount of luck you will get, so you want to use the best salvage kit, guys…”

    again i might be completely wrong so please treat my post just as a “i need to make sure kind of thing”. Cheers

    • They later clarified on the forums that was wrong and the type of salvage kit does not affect it

      • Tash

        Thank you very much 🙂
        it makes me even happier since i did purchase that copper-fed-salvage kit 🙂


  • Saihah

    What about Wayfarer’s prefix?

  • waffles

    no mention of the predator D:?

    • Kaeti

      The predator probably already looked good as is.

  • Sosecocroretot

    Hey, so I noticed the ascended greatsword had stats like: 188 134 134. However, the main power one had Power, VITALITY and critical dmg while the main precision had prec, power and CONDITION DMG. Are there any words on if we will be able to get our beloved berzerkerstats?

  • narg

    that things with MF really sux, with birthday gift and omnom I have 230% MF, I play lots of scarlet runs, 3 – 4 hours per day and all what i got was tons of green or blue shit, only few (up to 10pcs gold, and NO rare) WTF is this ?? for what is this MF stuff at all ?? this pissed me most in game (second things, I play gw every day since release, try all dragon when possible and for whole time I dont see chance to precursor, WTF again ??)

    I think about switch to wildstar even thoug it have monthly fee

    • wheniwasyoung

      MF only effects drops of enemy corpses not chests, not gathering nodes, not end rewards, not bags, not boxes….. only drops of enemy corpses

  • User

    Screenshots of other ascended weapons please?

    • Ellony Ella

      We haven’t been able to see the others yet, the information and screenshots above are taken from the livestream on twitch/youtube.

      You will probably have to wait a bit to see those

    • There aren’t any, this is a livestream, devs only showed a limited amount of stuff and I grabbed everything they showed.

  • EARL

    My question Dulfy.. is there a possibility to get higher tier infusions because we only have basic and fine rarity infusion which only gives +5stats i wonder if we will get exotic rarity infusion which will give nice stats or even ascended rarity infusion with ascended rarity sigils(lol im takin’ it too far but its probably possible near future) but if that’s possible i’ll wisely not wastin’ my blood,body,soul, and laurels for fine rarity infusion’s that will give only 5 stats and will stick the cheap agony infusion for fractals

    • wheniwasyoung

      i doubt that will be added as that will create a vertical gear grind, when gw2 is all about a horizontal gear grind

  • Michał Baran

    if there are ascended weapons of statistics – soldier

  • isaac

    Dulfy please answer this question of mine. So if I transmute my legendary now, later I can use the transmutation spliter and make my legendary weapon under “legendary” status and it will be account bound?

    • wheniwasyoung

      i doubt it would be account bound, more likely soulbound

  • Max Durak

    So for 1 weapon i need a vision crystal which requires 1500 components of 3 types i can get only form champions an world bosses.What if it would be rare drop from each boss once per day per account, ahaahhaha. Sounds like legendary weapon is much easier to get.
    I cant even imagine how many hundreds of hours of farming should i spend for the whole armor set.

    P.S. sry for my poor english.

    • henry

      probably you can get like 100 per component not like 1..

  • Keiran

    Dulfy, you might be interested in this.

    I analysed Arenanet’s stream “frame by frame” to get some item descriptions and the result is a pretty nice leak of some of the materials needed for components that Lindsey hasn’t shown:

    Conclusion: investing in wool, cotton, linen, thin leather, coarse leather, rugged leather, silver ore and gold ore might lead into benefits 🙂

    • Thanks but she did say some of the stuff are involved in ascended armor crafting which isn’t coming until later this year. So I think some of those mats are involved in that

      • Keiran

        Under the last one it’s written “Huntsman(500)” so leather will definitly be useful. Nothing written on first one so yea, I think wool, cotton and linen will be for armor.

        Also stacks of Silk Scrap and Thick Leather Section are incredibly cheap, 20s per stack, might be a good investment for when armors come out.

        • henry

          Spool is probably vendor reagant;
          bolt is probably T7 equivalent to ingots/planks (T2+T3+T4+T5);
          similar for leather square, those 2 used for ascended armor;
          and silver+gold+plat ore is probably the equivalent version of T7 used for ascended jewelry, although i dont know what it is going to craft since we already have all ascended jewelry.

      • Keiran

        Also, here’s the recipe of a dowel 🙂


        • Cool, I have that but let me know if you find anything else 🙂

  • jason wolcott

    Above you mention it will take two weeks to craft an Ascended Weapon. My math shows 5 days and a friend’s show 6 days. Can you clarify where you came to the conclusion of a two week process per weapon please? Thanks in advance.

    • The dev said it is 2 weeks.

      • Erik Weiss

        Regardless of whether it’s 5/6 days or 14 days, it sucks for those of us with 5+ 80s who love each one equally. Sophie’s Choice time 🙁

      • Max Durak

        I think dev said 2 weeks in terms of time restrictions for crafting certain components and when you have all crafting materials. Otherwise how are you suppose to gather at least 1500 t7 materials in 2 weeks?

  • Jonathan Adler

    Did they update the name of Minstrel > Ministrel?

    • No it is a typo on my part hah

  • Nicholas Chee

    So it is true that the Flameseeker Prophecies isn’t gonna get any update or footfalls?

    • That is what they said yes

      • Nicholas Chee

        This felt bittersweet on my end… Been waiting for this Sept. 3rd update and its nice seeing the other Legendaries got some clean-up… still, was hoping for an update on Flameseeker or at least some footfalls like the other “cool kids”.

        Anyway, with or without, I’m cool with it, it does look awesome already.

  • Evelynn

    excited about the changes on legendaries

  • Requius Uchiha

    Hi Dulfy, I’m really hoping you can answer this. With regards to the Transmutation Splitter, does it mean converting the status of ‘Transmuted’ on Legendaries back to ‘Legendary’ or does it refers to something else?

    • Basically if you have transmuted a legendary to get an exotic stats w/e, you can now use it to get the legendary stats back so you can have all the features the legendary would have such as upgraded to ascended stats, swap stats when out of combat etc.

      • Requius Uchiha

        Alright thank you for the reply, it was much appreciated. Then what if we happened to have transmuted it to weapons of white rarity before? Will it not affect anything so long as we transmute it back to exotic stats before the patch hits? Once again, thank you.

        • Kry

          You’re unnecessarily complicating something that is simple. The splitter would just return the Legendary back to its original state so you can then effectively unlock the new features. Exotic stats were mentioned because why would anyone transmute a legendary with white stats?

          • Ghisteslohm

            If you transmute it to white item which ist “not-bound” then you can transfer the item to another charakter which would not work otherwise because the legendary is soulbound.

            • Quilly

              Legendaries are on the TP, they are not soulbound until equipped. Just a clarification.

              P.S. I dont know who would transmute a legendary to a white item so that another character may equip it. Its so out there! Literally the person would get the legendary on one char, equip it to soulbind it then decide to transmute it to a white so that another character may use it, I mean wtf o.O

              • thorger

                Think i will transmute a legendary to a white item und transfer it to another char. Basically the transmutation splitter should give me a legendary back, but who knows if the devs implemented some restrictions. Until now, no answer in the official forums. -.-

          • Requius Uchiha

            You must be new to GW2, Kry.

        • I think it should work for whites as well or otherwise there will be alot of angry players.

  • Ari

    and what about precursers, will they still be exotics or they will become ascended now because of new stats for legys?

    • remain exotics I would guess but don’t quote me on it

      • Ari

        i hope so 🙂 ty for answer

  • Ivellios

    How about stats in Celestial Armor? They will still have magic find? Or will be replaced for example by boon duration or just mf will be cleared from them too?

    • Cordelia Mjolnir

      I’m really eager to know about this as well. I’ve been working on a full set of ascended accessories, and will be disappointed if the mag find just poofs from them, leaving them less than when I got them.

    • Good question, unfortunately I don’t know the answer to it 🙁

    • Actually just got word that celestial will just have magic find removed, rest of the stats are still there and you cannot change the celestial to another stats.

  • No One

    Hi, how many ectos will be needed for craft a weapon ?

    • no one

      …answer me please ?

      • it is 17 ectos per weapon, see flow chart

    • Valdus

      I counted 17 of them doing some aggregation… 🙂

      • 17 is what I got as well 🙂

  • Sivens

    I think that this might be the design of the Ascended Staff, i may be wrong, but i never saw this staff in the game 😮 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkPwxUu6kSI&feature=c4-overview&list=UUP_FgMqOxp_VsM0UfrL-DxA at 3m31

    • I believe you are correct! It fits the theme of the greatswords

    • Ghisteslohm

      I HOPE you are wrong, that looks boring as hell…again 🙁

  • hsj

    Account wide magic find can also be earned through achievements (no details given)
    Wouldn’t this just probably be referring to the current pathetically minimal magic find boost we get from the achievement chests currently?

    • Havn’t thought of that but yes that could be it

  • anonymous

    It says Utility Infusions MF will be retained. Does it mean that the 20% MF will be in both the Utility Infusion slot and account wide MF? i.e. the character that doesnt have the MF Infusion will benefit from another character that already has the 20% MF in the Utility Infusion?

    • Uh no I think it just means that the utility infusions still have the same amount of MF it had before and still remains character specific.

  • Donsword

    What if you have more than 1 legendary weapon? will Arenanet send me more than 1 transmutation splitter via mail?

  • Nipenthis

    Isn’t it only fair that Jewelers be allowed to craft ascended trinkets as well? I mean, not even their jewels have any value any more, since ascended equipment only accepts infusions for their upgrade slots. In fact, I might be pushing it a bit too far, but I think they should be able to craft infusions.

    • PimpDaddyWiteBoy

      infusions are “crafted” in the forge

  • joshueTM

    Does the Transmutation Splitter also unsoulbinds the legendary?

    • Sorry not sure but you will find out tomorrow 🙂

      • joshueTM

        are the legendaries account bound after the patch by the way?

  • John Doe

    Gotta love the new updated legendaries <3 cant wait. tnx dulfy

  • Tratonn

    Wait so is the moot changed at all?

  • Dan Jennings

    Wait they felt Rodgort was awesome already? The foot fall is a joke. The flame can’t even be seen on my charrs arm and it hardly changes any ability effects. I know it’s my fault for crafting it, but I thought for sure it would have gotten a upgrade before something like The Dreamer or Juggernaut.

  • Valdus

    When they say that they will give us 20% magic find by default, does it mean that it will add up to whatever magic find we’ve build up with achievements or are they leveling every existing player to 20%?

    • Apocsky

      If you use it right at the beginning it brings you up to 20%. It’s not an outright 20% as the amount of luck needed per next % increases.

  • Valdus

    I tried to sum up the amount of materials needed to craft a single ascended weapon for what matters the daily limited ones, which are Deldrimor Steel Ingots and Spiritwood Planks, due to the limit on Lumps of Mithrillium and Globs of Elder Spirit Residue.
    Now since you need just 6 of them for the Deldrimor Steel Plated Dowel and 6 of them to forge the “hilt” and the “blade”… doesn’t it add up to 12 days, which is less than the 2 weeks stated?
    Or am I missing something?

    • Togashi

      I try to gather all informations and sum them in a sheet. It worth that it worth (probably cause english is not my birth langage 🙂 but it will help me a lot 🙂


      • Valdus

        I get almost the same results (in a .txt file though… :P) except for something you seem to have forgotten, or maybe it’s me that added too much… 😛
        Orichalcum Inscription needs 5x Orichalcum Plated Dowel… so you need 15 Orichalcum Ingots and 10 Ancient Wood Planks, not only 3 and 2…
        And it needs too 5 more Globs of Ectoplasm, so 17 in total…
        The rest looks fine… 🙂

        • togashi

          Thanks for correction.

          Seems dulfy already made a better sheet already 🙂

    I use to be able to get nearly 400% of MF, now I have 4%…

    Thank you ANET for listening to the cry babies, the same ones that wouldn’t just up because they wanted everyone else to see their title, but when the update came and they realised they had to put up with everyone else’s title they didn’t want it anymore.

    And funny enough, they’re the same ones that have been asking for a “hardmode” where you’d get harder fights for better rewards, they’ve went as far as saying it should be a separate server for it.
    MF was a hardmode, but because the crybabies need to do CoF in half a second, and their DPS has to be untouchable, we get a core mechanic ruined.

    • Guest

      haha wat a noob, running mf gear in dungeon is hardmode? no its called douchbag mode cuz u are essentially jus leeching off ur teammates, seriously why do some ppl lack the basic decency of consideration for others.

    • wmwx14@gmail.com

      Everyone starts off with 20% MF. You can still get a high MF percentage… the max is 300% for all characters, then you have foods, guild boosts, etc. which add on to the 300%.

      Don’t be gay and cry about it.

  • Chahta

    Well Arena Net stuck it to the players again who went & built up Magic Find sets. Change my stats to something else? Are you kidding! As if I don’t already have my other sets! All the Magic Find sets are good for now is to salvage. No compensation for the time, cost & effort that went into making them. Thanks Arena Net, you could have at least made the compensation fair… maybe issuing equivalent Magic Find dependent on the gear that was ruined with the change.

    I just crafted a berserker stat great sword, I’d like to know if I want to transmute it on a cleric stat great sword, will the sword stay red because of the stat, or will the sword turn white with berserker stat ?

    • Jayce

      lol nice wordplay

  • Ani

    There are some little mistakes in the ascended crafting picture. For 3 Spiritwood Planks you need 60 hard wood planks (20 is needed for one) same mistake with the deldrimor steel ingot. 60 darksteel ingots needed not 20

  • Pineapple king
