Weapons

Auric Weapons

Acquisition

  • Crafting: Auric Weapons are discovery recipes for the appropriate crafting profession (400 Weaponsmith, Huntsman, and Artificer). Each recipe have 4 components: Exalted Weapon Core, Oiled Orichalcum Component 1, Oiled Orichalcum Component 2, and Orichalcum Imbued Inscription.
    • Exalted Weapon Core recipes are purchased from Exalted Mastery Vendor (Requires Exalted Acceptance) and requires 500/300/250 Aurillium for 2H/1H/OH weapons. Each weapon core requires 10 Auric Ingots or 5 Auric Ingots depending if the weapon is 2H or 1H. Each Auric Ingot requires 30 Pile of Auric Dust and 30 Auric Silver, both of which can be found in Exalted chests under Tarir after Octovine event. Auric Silver can also be found in ore nodes in Auric Basin if you have Exalted Gathering and is tradeable.
    • Each Oiled Orichalcum Components require 2-3 Orichalcum Ingot/Ancient Wood Plank and 5 Vial of Linseed Oil so you will need a total of 10 Vial of Linseed Oil per weapon. This recipe is learned automatically for 400 weaponsmith/huntsman/artificer.

gw2-auric-weapon-cores

  • PvP Reward Track: You get a choice of an Auric weapon at end of the Auric Basin Reward track (unlocked by completing Verdant Brink track first). This track is non repeatable so you can only get one weapon via this method. However, you do get an Exalted Core recipe midway through the track as well.
  • HoT story: You get a choice of three class specific weapons at end of Chapter 8 City of Hope (info taken from this reddit thread). Since it is more expensive to craft 2H > 1H > OH weapons there is an optimal choice to take for each class if you want to complete the collection cheaply (assuming you have one of each class that can do the story, otherwise pick whatever 2H option you get)

    • Engineer: Rifle
    • Guardian: Hammer
    • Mesmer: Greatsword
    • Necro: Staff

Chak Weapons

Acquisition

  • PvP Reward Track: You get a choice of a Chak weapon at end of the Tangled Depths Reward track (unlocked by completing Verdant Brink and Auric Basin track first). This track is non repeatable so you can only get one weapon via this method. Make sure to pick a 2H weapon via this method.
  • Vendor: You can purchase these Chak weapons from Nuhoch Mastery Vendors (requires Nuhoch Language). You need 500 Ley Line Crystals and 3 Chak Eggs for 1H weapons and 750 Ley Line Crystals and 5 Chak Eggs for 2H weapons. Chak Eggs are obtained from the chest at successful completion of King of the Jungle meta event completion in Tangled Depths or very rare drops from the Crystallized Supply Caches found throughout Tangled Depths.

gw2-chak-weapons-vendor

  • HoT Story: You get a choice of 2-3 Chak weapons from completing Chapter 13 Buried Insight. However, pretty much all the weapon choices are 1H weapons. Additionally, if you complete the Chapter 11 Roots of Terror Chak Killer – Master achievement, you will have the chance to pick any Chak weapon, which should also be a 2H weapon. Rest of the four 2H weapons and the warhorn can be only obtained via exchanging Chak eggs and Ley Line Crystals at the vendor. (Info taken from this reddit thread), Bolded weapons are the recommended choices if you are planning to do the story on every class.

  • catcatchers

    more trench coats man more coats 😛

  • Lilian Halcombe

    Thanks Dulfy, impressive work as always.

  • Thetruthisntalwayspopular

    There is a lot more weapons and armour then than i initially thought. Nice.

    • Eternum

      A lot less if you ask me! I would have preferred at least 5-10 different sets / armor weight, instead of having only a few with a long grind attached to them as acquisition method.

  • Eruanga Franza Kusumasubrata

    Wow… so much things to do… Should be occupied enough i guess…

  • zmania man

    Wish the new armor did not have all the same base skin with new stuff overlapping it. All the new light skirts look the same practically.

    • Shaggy

      every weight of armor has its trends that i REALLY wish anet would break more often.
      with light armor you get skirts and frilly bits, with medium armor you get coats, and with heavy armor you get shit sticking out everywhere.

      i also wish theyd be better about standardizing texture designs, because its really hard to mix and match sets without things looking horrifically out of place, not to mention the different ‘materials’ being dyed differently.

      • Pink Popstar Ahri

        The armor my thief uses has all 3 materials -_-

        Looks great now but coloring was a hell initially.

  • mylo

    You don’t need to do the day time T4 for bladed coat in VB, I’ve taxied in after the night session starts and still got it

    • Ares Zax

      I think what Dulfy means is that the MAP must achieve both T4 Day and T4 Night. Whether or not you personally were there for the day period does not matter.

  • Ares Zax

    Hey Dulfy, there is an additional way to get Bladed Gloves. They are sometimes found as very rare drops from Airship Cargoes in Verdant Brink. I can personally confirm this as I got one. Thus, if you were trying to complete the collection, I suggest buying all the other pieces first before the Gloves in case you get lucky beforehand.

    • Thanks added 🙂

  • Asda

    “It can’t be female armor unless it’s showing off the skin of the inner thighs” –Arenanet

    • thatdamnrat

      Um, plenty of sets up there that don’t do that, and at an eyeball there’s less that show thigh than are fully covered. Don’t get me wrong there’s plenty of dumb shit A-net does, but sensible female armours is one area where they’ve done pretty done, even if they’re a bit under represented in the light category.

    • Anon

      Except there are tons of armors that don’t do that…
      so what exactly is your problem?

      Oh, right! The imaginary “rape culture” that video games are perpetrating! Damn Anet and their evil muh soggy knees.

    • Anon

      See also small print attached: “God forbid the male equivalent of showy armor actually shows the same amount of skin. Or any. Male thighs are sin personified, better put skirts and thighs and under-vests everywhere.” — also Arenanet

      what is this? moral code army

  • Tash

    I am honestly happy i didn’t buy HoT. I don’t mean to rain on your parade guys, but i don’t like 90% of those skins, and looks is all that matters (in this game 🙂 )

    have fun though.

    • cardosy

      There are still a set of Legendary weapons coming, along with Legendary armor sets. I would never buy an expansion for gear alone, though.

    • heimdall

      The main reason to buy HoT for me was rev and elite spec.

    • Leen

      Says it on a page dedicated exclusively to the new skins.

      There’s a ton more stuff in HoT – story, guild features, WvW and PvP maps, etc. – but they are mot what this exact guide is about.

    • Shaggy

      personally, im excited for new challenges and adventures. i enjoy the raised difficulty, and i had done pretty much everything in the core game anyway. the skins are great, but only insofar as putting 4 cans of whipped cream on your pumpkin pie is better than just 3.

    • Me

      So you are basicaly saying you are playing gw2 for looks? I dont understand… why wont you go play like HD mods of skyrim, or something like that…. It looks way better, than MMO could ever look. GW2 is about having a fun. Not grinding gear to be able to have fun, like in wow, or so. However i have been playing and enjoying HoT for 3 week around 6 hours a day and up intill now, I pretty much didnt know the look of the most skins on this page. Its not like HoT is DLC for your wardrobe. HoT is DLC for exploring, challenges and tons and tons of stuff. Honestly I couldnt go back just to GW2 vanila, since i would got bored to death without HoT.

  • I want everything!

    • Kingz

      Good luck with that.. either you are so rich that you litterally shit GOLD. Or ‘YOU’ yourself are RnJezuz to aquire everything shown above in your lifetime.

  • Pink Popstar Ahri

    Only part of the Mistward armor that I still miss is the headwrap as I still have not done the tangled depths event. Don’t really need it though as I use the Resplendent curtain.

    And maybe someday I will have the Ad Infinitum. in about a year or two <.<

  • DL

    Does anyone know where to get Trailblazer insignia/inscription? I’ve been trying to find out for a while but without success, starting to think they’re not actually in game yet.

    • Shaggy

      there are a lot of stat combos that dont have obtainable recipes. its unfortunate, really. if they had simply laid out all possible combos from the start and planned out when to release which ones, it would be a lot easier to manage.

  • Coz we need more

    Odds on the legendary medium armor being a trenchcoat?

    • Pink Popstar Ahri

      going out from the current sets… about 90% <.<

  • Shaggy

    thanks to the reclaimed set, i can finally have a shortbow that isnt just a shittier-looking version of the longbow, but still looks like a functional bow and not a hulking, awkward mass

  • RKC

    Question- would using a blacklion salvage kit have a better chance at salvaging a Reclaimed metal plate or is that plate have a fixed drop rate regardless on the quality of the salvage kit used?

    • Eternum

      Black Lion Salvage Kit has it’s rare material drop chance WRITTEN in it’s description (which is by the way, the same as rare and mystic salvage kits if I’m not mistaken).

      • Raz

        I’ve never seen a reply avoid the question presented so beautifully.

      • Pink Popstar Ahri

        The BLSK is 50% rare drop chance and all others are 25%max.

    • Anon

      I think read somewhere that only the rare quality reclaimed weapons can be salvaged for the reclaimed metal plate.

  • Christine Fitzsimmons

    I swear to all that’s holy I received the Opulent Defender instead of the Chronomancer Shield when it still cost 60 points to unlock, because I have it soulbound to a character that hasn’t set foot in a HoT map, let alone looted a champ bag

    • Pink Popstar Ahri

      Thats… impossible. You cant even unlock Chrono without going into the HoT maps let alone get another item from it.

      Machined Weapons

      Acquisition

      To acquire these Machined weapons, you will need to first purchase the appropriate Plated weapon. This will unlock specific collections that will reward you the corresponding Machined weapons once you complete them. Each Machined weapon collection requires the following.

      Corresponding Plated weapon

      Airship-Grade Weapon Component – Sold by Itzel Mastery vendors for 250 Airship Parts

      Auric Weapon Component – Sold by Exated Mastery vendors for 250 Lump of Aurillium.

      Ley-Line Weapon Component – Sold by Nuhoch Mastery vendors for 250 Ley Line Crystals.

      Charged Weapon Component – Charge the corresponding Oiled weapon component (crafted) at any hero point that requires you to commune with it. A good one is the hero point in Verdant Brink that used to require Nuhoch 5 before they reduced the requirements.

      Machined Weapon Component – Guaranteed drop from the chest at successful completion of Mouth of Mordremoth meta event once you have unlocked the collection. Otherwise you can get them from Noxious Pods in Dragon’s Stand.

      If you look up machined weapons on this page it has this explaination

          I’ve gotten it several times, just get on an alright map and use map chat to rally people to the cause of getting T4 day/night.

          • RedGhost 2

            I always just organize my own map/constantly taxi people in, it can take up to 4 hours to get most people through the first time/the 2nd is usually good after that.

    Of the 3 reclaimed metal plates I have managed to get, I got 1 from the pvp track and 2 from rares.

I dont know if they specifically have a higher drop chance for rare reclaimed weapons, but it might be something worth keeping an eye on.

    This game is designed for people with too much time on their hands, most folks will never bother with crafting or delving an onslaught of dungeons just for a flashy looking skin. Guild Wars franchise reaks of Blizzard mantality when it comes to owning virtual goods.
