GW2 Nightfury Halloween Shoulders Crafting Guide
A guide to crafting the Nightfury Halloween Ascended shoulders introduced with Halloween 2015.
Nightfury Ascended Shoulders
- Special thanks to Audeley for the modeling.
- The shoulders have no actual graphic, it just show up as a swarm of bats around your character.
- The stats are Power/Precision/Condi. You can pick on armor weight for the shoulder (it will unlock all 3 armor weight skins in the wardrobe), the screenshot below is just an example.
- It DOES NOT work with outfits (even though the shoulders have no appearance) and it CANNOT be dyed (only black bats)
You will need to combine the following in the Mystic Forge to make the Nightfury
- 1x Endless Bottle of Batwing Brew (drop from Trick or Treat Bags, Opened and Unopened both work apparently).
- 1x Gift of Darkness
- 1x Vision Crystal
- 1x Preserved Bat Wing
What you need from Halloween
Everything else can be obtained later.
- 1x Endless Bat-Wing Brew (Trick or Treat Bags)
- 4x Tattered Bat Wing (can be purchased on TP or earned from Ascend to Madness dungeon/Mad King Says)
Preserved Bat Wing is made in the mystic forge via the following materials

How to get Linseed Oil
There is a flax seed farm below the Jaka Itzel Waypoint in Verdant brink. Drop down all the way to the very bottom. You can farm this daily.
Additionally there is a Heart of Thorns story achievement that give you 10 Vials of Linseed Oil but you can only do this once per account.
How to get Tattered Batwings
You can farm Ascent to Madness dungeon infinitely for a chance at Tattered Batwings. They are a rare drop so be prepared to farm it for a while. This is a 5 man dungeon.
