GW2 Mystic Forge Conduit Crafting Guide
A guide to crafting the portable Mystic Forge Conduit introduced with the June 23 Lion’s Arch patch.
With the June 23 update, you can now make your own portable Mystic Forge Conduit. Beware that this item isn’t cheap and require some expensive components you can only get from gambling for ectoplasms and gold (or buy directly from trading post).
Gambling for components
With the rebuilt Lion’s Arch, there is now a skritt vendor named Apprentice Mekteki in the secret cave near Diverse Ledges waypoint you can gamble your gold and ectoplasm. He sells three packages for various amount of ectoplasm and gold that give you back a varied amount of gold, ectoplasm, and sometimes Unidentifiable Goo-Covered Object which contains the various components you need to craft a portable mystic forge conduit. The exact component it drops is random so you can get lucky or unlucky.
Buying for components
Now gambling isn’t everyone’s forte and it can be pretty expensive trying to gamble your ectoplasms and gold for a chance at the portable mystic forge components. Luckily everything can be purchased on the TP, including the Mystic Forge Conduit itself.
First you want to check to see if it is worth crafting the Mystic Forge Conduit itself. There are two kinds of Mystic Forge Conduits listed on the trading post. The cheaper one is the one you can craft while the expensive one is the older conduit that was a rare drop from the Black Lion chests. They are identical in function.
- Check the price here if you are not ingame
Now check the price of the components. Mystic Frame and Mystic Nexus are the two the most expensive components in the list so check the price of that first to see if it is worth while to craft the Mystic Forge Conduit or just buy it directly from the trading post.
- 1 Mystic Frame (price)
- 1 Mystic Nexus (price)
- 1 Mystic Tube (price)
- 1 Mystic Core (price)
- 1 Mystic Casing (price)
- 1 Mystic Essence (price)
- 50 Mystic Coins (price x 50)
In the mystic forge combine the following
- 1 Mystic Tube
- 1 Mystic Core
- 1 Mystic Casing
- 1 Mystic Essence
This will make a Mystic Forge Node. This is a one time use portable mystic forge so you do not want to use it. It is an intermediate for making the unlimited use version.
Now take that Mystic Forge Node and combine it again
- 1 Mystic Forge Node
- 50 Mystic Coins
- 1 Mystic Frame
- 1 Mystic Nexus
The crafted product is tradeable but once you click to use it it will become account bound. So if you want to sell it, don’t use it!
There you have it, your own portable Mystic Forge Conduit. Now you can salvage and mystic forge after anywhere without having to port to Lion’s Arch.
