Recipes

Once you have unlocked this upgrade, you will find a new tab in the Guild Armorer vendor, with recipes selling for 40 Crystalline Ore and 10 Guild Commendations each. Obtaining all 18 armor pieces will cost you 720 Crystalline Ore, and 180 Guild Commendations. The same vendor also sells the recipe for Guild Insignia for 10 Crystalline Ore and 3 Guild Commendations. The recipes requires 450 in either Tailor, Leatherworker, or Armorsmith, depending on which set you are crafting. All the recipes are account bound so you cannot sell or trade them.

  • Crystalline Ore comes only from Noxious Pods in Dragon Stand, so you will need to keep farming that map to get sufficient ores. Most of them spawn in the 10 minute window after a successful meta event completion.
  • Guild Commendations are obtained from weekly guild missions.

So depending on the piece you are trying to craft you will need 3-5 Tenebrous or Shimmering Crystals for a total of 20 Shimmering/Tenebrous crystals per set for each armor weight or 60 for all 18 armor pieces.

    still love the tenebrous set, but damn its gonna take forever to get there on my own

    • Name

      Wheres the Mystery Inc gang tho?

      • Shaggy

        sadly, i lost them in the initial battle for the guild hall. im the only survivor…

        • name 2

          :'( R.I.P Shaggy gang.

  • nadrian3k

    Medium armor is the best looking and most fitting for the class. Rest are subpar.

    • Colosso

      We have light, medium and heavy wearing shields so if you use a Star in your chest and you can say that you are Captain America

  • Kallyko

    I like the light one.
    But it will take a while for my small guild to reach that target.

  • Vin Lady Venture

    If you like to get them but your guild does not have them in sight or you are not part of a guild at all, You can always (temporary) join a guild who has the recipe’s unlocked to buy them. Also not all guilds require things from their members, there are plenty casual guilds that have no requirements besides being polite and friendly.

    • Ivan

      honestly the best guilds i’ve found are the elitist gvg groups. they aren’t spamming guild chat about legendary crafting or going for AP races, those are honestly some huge turn offs in any guild chat. all they do is kill and loot, and maybe some cheeky banter over voice comms, mostly insulting the other servers/zergs. if someone wants AP, do it in their own time, if they want attention, go to tumblr and blog about it. casuals tend to feature a lot more attention whores than the serious guilds. but to each their own, just different flavours of gw2

      just my opinion mate

      • Crewthief

        Ok.

    I get the impression you’re doing this on purpose… a lot of people consult your website for the nice guides you host, why mislead some of them non-native english speakers towards wrong spelling?

    • The Anon

      Sorry Dulfy, but i agree with Rehjo.

    • Asda

      It isn’t this site’s duty to teach you english, do that on your own time instead of playing video games and complaining that you’re being “misled”.

      • Rehjo

        Merri Chrystmas too you two.

        • :3

          Your first comment was due credit but now you are being sarcastic. Nice discussion, no one will take you seriously now

          • Rehjo

            Took you a while to log in as a guest to respond. But it’s okay, I still love you.

      • Benjamin Harrison

        That lame excuse needs to die. People are stupid enough as it ism without the English language being killed by the internet.

    • If you havn’t figured out already, English is not my first language. If you seriously think I am doing on purpose to mislead people, then I don’t know what to tell you.

      • Rehjo

        Exactly. Recommendations are made but seem to be ignored. And then we have some wannabe professional sociologists who try to present said recommendations as negative criticism. But the latter is only what they get in response anyway 🙂

        • BenAdkins Chrono

          Rehjo, I think I speak for most guildwars players in saying that anyone who decides to bash Dulfy, on Christmas day, for grammar or spelling issues, is a complete ass.

          • Rehjo

            The initial comment was not posted on any Christmas day. There was no attempt to “bash” anyone. I’m an admirer of all the work of Dulfy, only made an observation that despite people’s recommendations and corrections, the same mistakes are being repeated. Tried to find a way to privately message the author to suggest corrections, could not figure out how. Alas, people like YOUR kind prefer to twist words and make other people’s comments come out negative. Call me an ass if you wish, I won’t tell you what you are 🙂 you should know by now.

        • Saurus

          You’ve got too much free time in your life. Don’t you ?

          • Rehjo

            Not really. But I definitely spent too much of it on people who didn’t deserve the attention, hence all previous comments are now deleted. Have a good night.

      • Colosso

        English is not my first language also and I don´t blame you because 4 years ago I asked for a kidnap on a restaurant (Actually I needed a napkin) I realized the mess I made only hours after in the Hotel XD.

  • Euni

    Dulfy I think you meant prerequisites instead of perquisite as perquisite is just another term for perks while prerequisites means a condition that must be obtain before something else happens. Anyways AWESOME site! I come here often and you’ve always done a great job! Merry Christmas!

    P.S. sorry if i sound like a grammer nazi or something, i really don’t mean to be one.

  • Quinny

    I don’t believe you can go to both guild halls and mine the synthesizers, even if you switch characters. Just tried it on an alt and it didn’t work. >:

    • Allvaldr

      If I switch characters it works for me.

    • RzaX

      I agree, doesn’t seem to work. Once you mine the ore synthesizers of either Guild Halls, that’s it for the day.

      • Aimee Rivera

        I have scored 77k dollars previous year working online and I am a full time student. I am attached with an online business entity that I heard about and I have earned such great cash. It is really user friendly and I feel myself lucky to have that option. Why not try this.

        CEO of Yahoo, Marissa Meyer has gone so far as to Support the practice “Work at home” that I have been doing since last year. In this year till now I have earned 88k dollars with my pc, despite the fact that I am a college student. Even newbies can make 38 an hour easily and the average goes up with time. Why not try this.

      If you rep the the guild for the guild hall you’re in, you can get it from both guild halls on the same character.
