A guide to the GW2 Legendary Armor Collection and Crafting. Last Updated June 21, 2016.  

Envoy Armor I: Experimental Armor

To unlock this collection, you will need to kill a raid boss in any of the 3 raid wings. Finishing it will reward you with 5 AP and a set of Ascended armor (Experimental Armor).

Infused Living Crystal

gw2-infused-living-crystal

  • Raid Wing: 1
  • Time gated: No
  • Can be done in a cleared instance: Yes

First you need to acquire a Living Crystal from the hidden Earth Elemental in Tangled Depths. This is the same earth elemental guarding that Whitebear’s Pride II Strongbox. If you forgot how to get to it, consult this guide. Killing the earth elemental (soloable, might be easier with two players) will grant you the Living Crystal in your inventory if you have unlocked the collection.

gw2-infused-living-crystal-2gw2-infused-living-crystal-3

Once you have the Living Crystal, go kill Vale Guardian or find a cleared instance and interact with the destroyed Pylons in the Vale Guardian fight area (a dialogue window will pop up) to obtained the Infused version of the Living Crystal.

Infused Soul Mirror

gw2-infused-soul-mirror

  • Raid Wing: 1
  • Time gated: No
  • Can be done in a cleared instance: No

You will find Burnisher Kengo in Northwatch of Auric Basin – [&BN0HAAA=]. He might not always be there if there are events running so check back later if he is not there. Talking to him will give you the Soul Mirror.

gw2-infused-soul-mirror-3gw2-infused-soul-mirror-2

Once you have the Soul Mirror, you need to be part of a raid that is willing to do the spectral torch run. This is after clearing Vale Guardian, there will be a couple ghost events you need to finish and clear before encountering a Spectral Torch right before the part where your raid need to glide off. One person need to carry this torch all the way to the area right before Gorseval without dropping it or getting downed. Then you can interact with the final lit torch right before Gorseval to get the Infused Soul Mirror.

With the Energy Crystal in hand, go to the Inner Chamber in Auric Basin. You need to have done parts of the HoT personal story that allow you access to the Inner Chamber. You can drop down the hole in the middle of Tarir city and then take the portal to Inner Chamber. Approaching the Inner Chamber central platform with the Energy Crystal in your inventory will grant you the Auric Energy Crystal.

gw2-spirit-weave-2

The Chak Gerent meta event occurs every 2 hrs at 30 minutes past the hour near Ley Line Confluence Waypoint – [&BPUHAAA=]. Use the map timer to see when the Chak Gerent is up. There is a Chak Gerent in each of the 4 lanes. You don’t need to succeed at the Chak Gerent meta event to get the transformation, as long you manage to kill a Gerent. To do this fast you can tag all 4 Chak Gerents in the meta event.

gw2-spirit-weave-3

You can only get 1 Spirit Thread a week so it will take you 5 weeks to get 5 Energized Spirit Threads. Once you have all 5 you can double click on them to make a Spirit Weave.

Once you have all 10 Ectoplasm Residues you can double click them and have them to form a Coagulated Ectoplasm.

gw2-coagulated-ectoplasm-3

There are 4 chests in Spirit Vale.

When this item is in your inventory, you need to click it and get a 15 min duration buff. While this buff is active, you need to kill the Keep Construct and loot the boss chest  to get the Spirit Strings (if you killed Keep Construct already this week and therefore not eligible for boss loot, you need to wait for the weekly reset). Besure to reapply this buff immediately after every wipe as applying it during the fight doesn’t seem to work according to some players.

Appearance

Note that due to feedback from players, the female version of Charr and Asura armor will be made identical to the male version in a later patch,

Thanks for voting and commenting. We’ve read through everything you’ve posted here.

Among people who expressed a clear preference for one of the options, about 230 people prefer to make the change, versus about 40 who prefer to leave it as is. We’ll make the change.

We’re also going to work on cleaning up the Charr tail clipping. And then our focus has to be on shipping the full legendary set.

Thanks everyone!

  • nadrian3k

    Oh waw..those costs….and i am not talking about just the gold cost. And this is just the FIRST tier. I really hope for people that are willing to undergo this massive farm, that the final skin is worth it.

    • Snow

      The precursor armor is only around 180 gold on total, that’s why the legendary part is expensive, in total, the armor is cheaper than one of the HoT legendary weapon (2700 gold for armor vs 3300 for HoT legendary)

      • nadrian3k

        Sry for the late reply. I stated “not talking about just gold” 🙂 Hope this clears things out. Gold is easy shit in this game. Hell..people buy thousands from botters anyway. Means nothing. Time wasted is the key to any mmo.

  • seleyp

    5 cube? not 6?

  • Lionblaze

    I despise the first collection since raising is designed to be hated. I mean fuck that goddamn thing! But my uncontrollable and unrelenting ocd is making me want the best items, and since I’d rather cut my balls off with a butter knife than play the raid, I guess I’ll be quitting g gw2. Is there someway I could convince anet to give it to me or something?

    • mhm

      I hate raiding as well like the majority. I hope anet will keep on their philosophy to make items available in more than one way. Maybe they will create casual version of raids or something. But for now it will be available only for those 5% hardcore elitist jerks who do raid.

      • Sty

        In my opinion, what makes raids elitist in most games is the constant gear rush needed to be efficient in raid.

        In GW2, you were already capped with ascended equipment before raids were released and you basically just have to know the rather simple strategies and play properly.

        So I would not call that elitist, but it is one of the rare pve activities that reward players based on the quality of their gameplay.

        • kavok

          It is elitist when groups of players reject your admittance into the group because, in their minds, you aren’t spec’d exactly as they feel you must be. Granted there is some need to have certain things in order to survive the encounter. However demanding that a person change their entire character to fit what they believe is necessary, and require knowing every minute detail of the raid
          encounter without being given the chance to learn it through experiencing it is very much so elitist. Everyone has to start at the beginning at some point. Amazing how fast people forget they were a noob once too.

          • Sty

            That’s not the case with all players though. And it’s not specific to raids, as you’ll have similar elitism for dungeons/fractals/pvp/etc.

            Anyway, nobody will require you to know every minute detail of the raid. But knowing the 4-5 mechanisms of the fight is obviously mandatory.

            • mhm

              Indeed elitism exist in dungeons/fractals/pvp etc. but it is very rare compared to raids because those game modes can be done in casual way.

          • Harrison Fang

            obviously you should be given time to learn it but it is expected that you run optimal gear to make the encounter faster and easier. this mindset is everywhere in the game whether it be dungeons,fractals or wvw there is always optimal gear which you should be using to help your team server etc

          • kymion

            I’ve been with easily 100 raid squads, if not closer to 120-130. Not once have I been kicked for any reason. I’ve had literally one group ever request that I ping my gear, and they advertised in LFG that this would be the case so I expected it. The only negative experiences I’ve had were with people on VOIP who were rude, but even then it’s been rare and tbh most of the stuff they were saying was true, just said in a rude way. The vast majority were understanding and patient.

            I think you have some kind of problem with raids and are attributing your negative feelings to flaws in the people who run them and/or the raids themselves. Maybe you rolled in with a really wacky build, and they were hesitant about whether you’d be able to pull your weight. Or maybe you went in with high toughness and weren’t planning on tanking, which actually wrecks the mechanics for the entire group (this is an objective fact on VG for example). Or maybe you had some bad experience with rude people and wrote off the whole thing.

            I’m really hoping it’s not just you ASSUMING it’s this elitist club without having given it a fair shot.

          • Disproportional

            I am sorry but I just got taken in by a pretty decent raid group and I have to tell you I used to think the way you do about it being elitist. After running with this guild for a couple weeks I have learned 2 things. 1 is that my game and ability to play has increased. 2. It’s very simple. Go watch the boss encounter videos on youtube. Familiarize yourself with the mechanics so you know what to expect when to expect it and what to do about it. Then find a group willing to take you into raid once you know what its about and you shouldn’t have very many problems. The requirement for certain builds and classes will also be answered during your watching the raid videos on youtube. Good day to you.

      • Phobia256

        I think the percentage of raiders is fairly high in GW2, I think a rep confirmed this once. Just because you do not like raiding, does not make eveyone a jerk that does raid 😉

      • Harrison Fang

        raiders arent elitists they just want people to put the same effort in as they are if you decide to raid its up to you to pull your own weight which means having good dps and not dying all the time and knowing mechanics. this in no way is elitist behavior

      • Xaei

        I want those SAB Tribulation skins but I had the urge to smash key board the last time I tried that.

        But I’m not here complaining about that am I.

        It’s a cosmetic item which at best gives a QoL benefit over ascended year.

    • Harrison Fang

      end game is end game. if everything was easy and could be bought with money there would be no point in playing the game

  • Dev

    Yeah, no.

  • Alot

    Crystalline heart, when 1 Thaumanova Reactor breakdown just isn’t enough.

    Only thing I’m dubious of is the Gift of Prosperity required for each armor piece. Pretty sure this puts the cost of legendary armor way above the cost of a legendary weapon. And on a side point, I’m pretty sure I looted a Coagulated Ectoplasm from the bunny chest at the end of the first event in wing 3 – which leaves me with the impression that Coagulated Ectoplasm might drop from small chests in any wing.

    • Phobia256

      Yes, it does drop from the chests in all three wings.

      • Alot

        Cool. So…
        How does one inform Dulfy of this?

    • Richard

      Yes any small chest in any raid wing. Even the bunny chest in wing 3. Dulfy can u update this info

  • Aen

    Medium headpiece should come with a mask, the precursor look like a average light hood.

  • FrycoN

    So its already more than 2,700 gold and its not even all. U must be fu**in kiddin me..

    • Perry

      2h a week isnt really intense farming

      • Jacob

        2h a week of farming what?

        • Perry

          he mentioned the 4 months “timegate” of legendary insights and called it intense farming

          • Whatever

            Timegate. More like skillcheck. I have been raiding since day 1 and I already have 133 LI’s.

            • SirBeaumerdier

              It’s not a skillcheck at all. Once you defeated the boss once you have proven all you needed to prove skill-wise. The hardest is always going to be that first time you defeated the boss. Any and all subsequent victory of the same add very little to brag about except that you have access to a lot of time and are well connected in the raid circle.

              • Whatever

                It seems to add to a lot since everyone is complaining about it. On my behalf I have found decent people to raid with, made friends and have more of a reason to still play the game so I wouldn’t say that’s little.

    • Harrison Fang

      2700 gold total is nothing. you do realise that all those mats are for the final legendary armor right

    • Fayl

      Pretty cheap legendary

  • frag971

    wow, i haven’t played GW2 for a long while and looking at this only confirms it. Those insane farms are nothing more than make players purchase mats for real money -.- lol

    • mhm

      Do you even realize that legendary gear is just cosmetic and small improvement in QoL? You are not getting ANY advantage in combat. So one is making you to farm or buy anything to keep in line with other. It just an option for people who have to much gold and want to have prestigious items. Same goes with permanent bank, merchant and other merchants.
      Or you was just trolling here?

      • frag971

        Yeah, charging for basic inventory slots is just laughable. I’m not trolling, it’s just my opinion.

        • Fayl

          meanwhile you can get all those for exactly 0$.

          • frag971

            yeah, i don’t find gold farming for months fun

    • Fayl

      Even though playing constantly gives you half those mats over time.

  • Фролов Денис

    Ugly.

    • Nancy Arseneault-Heald

      Cannot upvote this opinion enough.

      • Fayl

        Precursers dont need to look good. You consume them eventually anyways to make the final product.

        • Nancy Arseneault-Heald

          Still ugly… Cannot be denied.

  • Mario Medinilla

    The first tier of the precursor armor cost almost nothing, it’s just about completing the first collection. The second one only has the Crystalline Ingots plus the 6 things we don’t know about yet.

    That table with all those mats is NOT for the precursor, but the final Legendary Armor.

  • Ragna

    Glad I sold my account.

    • J Mad

      Then why are you on here looking stuff up? You sold it move on.

      • Ragna

        The site is http://dulfy.net/ there are other games in here and I like to keep informed and I didn’t ask you anything just made a statement 🙂

        • J Mad

          And I made a statement 🙂

          • Ragna

            You asked a question, see that thing at the end “?”.

      • K Mad

        Same reason you cared enough to respond…

    • Nero

      Good Riddance!

      • Ragna

        So salty lol

        • Nero

          You were clearly trolling, not just stating your opinion as you said. I Left many other MMO’s, maybe just like you, but I don’t write silly comments like “Glad I sold my account.” because statements like these have zero worth or meanings..

          • Ragna

            Wrong it had worth as I got money in return lol

            • Fayl

              Getting money in return does not give a statement worth but the action.

              • Ragna

                Both the statement and the money had worth at least for some so yes I stand correct.

  • concot

    So to lazy to make a new gift of might/magic so now we are stuck with needing 600 instead of 300 of each t6 material? (would still be 600 more total than weapon).

  • mrh

    So does this mean you don’t have to craft all of the armor, and just the pieces I like?

    • Just the piece you like.

  • Ignoranceisbliss

    At least the LI’s make it somewhat worthy. The price is pretty cheap, I wonder if the missing components will be more expensive to make this actually prestigious? Right now it doesn’t even cost as much as a single legendary weapon to make the entire armor set.

  • Salmane

    Remember to use your laurels to buy T6 crafting mats.

  • Valento

    Sodden Heart image is equal to Windy Heart.

  • Rydi

    4 fucking months if all 3 wings, 1 year if 1 wing, Anet go fuck yourself!

    • Whatever

      4 months for what?

      • Colosso

        For 150 Legendary Insights (17 weeks)

      • Rydi

        150 Legendary Insights

        • Whatever

          Raided since day 1 and I am at 136 so I don’t think this will be an issue for any regular raider.

          • Rydi

            And hell for any new raider…

            • Whatever

              That is good. It makes my efforts since day 1 worth.

  • Ari

    how do you know what we need for Gift of the Pact if it’s not out yet?

  • Bryan Turner

    Wow and I thought crafting ascended armor was a pain in the ass.

  • rashdanml
    • Skaks

      what exactly did you do?

      • rashdanml

        That’s island 5, glide down below it and double click the heart.
        I didn’t actually do it, someone else posted it on Reddit.

  • Raz

    Medium armor: Hideous.

    • Fayl

      Precurser = consumed when making final product = looks not relevant.

  • Skaks

    which wyvern do i need to fight in VB for the windy heart?

    • The Legendary ones during the night time event.

  • Raizel

    If i’m downed during KC fight, I’m still getting the Spirit String after victory if someone ress me? What about if I die but my squad defeat him while I’m dead?

  • Samantha Leblanc

    man i hate this finally get good female armor for charr and they are gonna change it to male. >.>

  • Suan

    Wow, that’s a ridiculous amount of things need to be done.. not sure if I ever finish this armor..
    Question..s.. completing the first collection gives you a full armor set or just one piece? Is the first collection new skin already or is is just ascendet armor skin?

    • full set and it is the new skin

  • Kasper Asmussen

    Might want to add that the Itzel Spirit Poison is removed when you get downed, so you need to reapply it midfight if that happens. And if you’re downed/dead when it finishes then you won’t get the strings, but if you make a ticket A-net seem like they are willing to give the strings to you if you ask them in support.

  • OskarwaR

    How unlock all of the experimental armor skins if we only got one set with the achievements?

  • Raizel

    The chests in Twisted Castle don’t disappear after the event so why did you write that it can’t be done in a cleared instance?

  • Giwrgos Mht

    I’ve a question (sorry if it’s already specified somewhere, I’m posting this rather late). When you speak to one of the crafting masters, does it lock you into the armor type that matches said crafting master? E.g, say I unlock part II by speaking to the Armorsmith, does that make me lock myself into crafting the Heavy set?

  • Raizel

    Please change the Blood-Infused Ectoplasm rng fact, it’s the only item I’m missing from a collection which should reward skill in raid, i got all items in the first week and that ectoplasm can’t be the reason I can’t complete this achievement…I mean, now I have to wait another week for a chance (not a certainty!!!) to complete my first tier armor, it just shouldn’t be this way…

  • John Doe

    and I called it , the most ugly skins yet.. lol legendary

  • Reema

    Collection II: The Windy Heart can be obtained from the wyvern spawning after a successful Dragon’s Stand at the Tiger spot as well. And the Mouth of Mordremoth does not need to be defeated to obtain the Ley-Infused heart.

  • Darkknight aza

    This is so sad. The best looking heavy armor in the game. But too much grind.

  • Rub Rubs

    That armor is ugly as fucking shit foreal, wow who in the hell would want to wear trash gear like that?

    • Someone who knows

      you realize its only the first precursor right?

  • Colosso

    Vol II Windy Heart – you can get from Legendary Wyvern in Auric Basin near Mossheart Walk after meat event.

  • nameee

    precursors look bad. Heavy set is kinda decent but others…. not worth the time and the grind… And still no legendary armor skins revealed yet 1 year later

  • Raizel

    Nothing new about release date?

  • Miazara

    Is there any source on the Gift of the Pact item that it requires 250 of each map currency? I cannot find any source on this..

  • Answerer

    So, 4 months for 1 set if you do all 3 wings completely every week.
    That is harsh.. even for the average raider.. let alone people like me who do 2-3 wings per month at best.. I’ll just expect legendary armor isn’t for people like me

    • ShadowCake

      2-3 wings per month??? that’s tiny, how do u expect to get legendary with that type of dedication

  • John Doe

    That’s an insane grind , to have to raid that much for 4 months ? Is that a joke ? lol

    • Rhianydd Taylor

      its still way cheaper than any legendary weapon

  • Jasmine Lock

    I honestly think they need to be changed to fit the race. I’m no Charr anatomy expert but I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be the same thing as it is on humans. I just don’t see a giant anthropomorphic cat having armour to support human-like boobs. As for Asura… oh my god the light armour isn’t good.
    I’m pretty excited to see the legendary medium armour, based on these precursors I HOPE that the dragon head moves or breathes fire, maybe even snake around the body in the final version seeing as the belt already looks like a snake body. Looks like a pretty darn good opportunity there.

    Though these are armour I will NEVER be able to acquire simply because I don’t do raids, and even if I wanted to do them (which I’ll be honest, I do want to) I will have absolutely no one to do them with. Guess it sucks for all of those who have no friends huh.

  • Shara

    It would be nice for those that just can’t do the raid to be able to unlock a reward path in WvW and PvE by completing all the Raid achievements. That would give you all but two of the items you need for the Envoy armor set. And yes I’m sure allot of people would be salty about non Raiders being able to obtain legendary armor. But if the reward tracks just gave you a chest in the end that gave you some kind of currency to buy what you needed, then it may be a fair trade. It is possible with enough dedication to complete the raids if you get the right group of friends that are willing to keep getting their butts kicked until you figure it out. Otherwise there are the groups selling raids. Not saying I approve of that method or if its even legal in Anets eyes. But it is there.

    • Chadlin Darleux

      I have to agree. I am the hybrid player that enjoys both WvW and PvE equally. I don’t want to be restricted to just one game type. If I want to make legendary armor in any reasonable amount of time I would have to forget about WvW entirely. The same wasn’t true when I made The Bifrost. I farmed nearly three-quarters of the materials I needed from WvW. With the exception of mystic coins and the Gift of Zhaitan. (This was before reward tracks) Now with this strict crafting path, I am stuffed into the ‘PvE only’ box for the next few months.

      • Shara

        Or even a different legendary armor for whatever type of player you are. We have players that only PvP, or WvW, PvE. And Raids are really tough. And if you don’t have so many of the legendary tokens no one wants to party with you even though you do understand the mechanics.

        • I’d rather post as a guest

          This is for people with a small dick

  • TheRuyKokki

    @dulfy:disqus You can get the Blood-Infused Ectoplasm in a cleared instance even if you haven’t killed anything that week (tested in completly cleared w3).

  • ok

    fuck this

  • Raizel

    Should update, Gift of the Pact has been made available (despite the mystic forge recipe remains disabled) and Envoy Armor II collection has new tasks too.

  • Answerer

    Should update, all hearts beside the last are know.
    Raid 2 has 5 hearts:
    1. Anywhere inside.
    2. Activate before Cairn. Survive without missing a green field.
    3. Survive Mursaat Overseer while being protected at least once.
    4. Defeat the wimp and get caught in his blast (so you need to not do the push mechanic for one round).
    5. Defeat Deimos without dying.

    All hearts require activation before the fight, not after!

  • Gw2 is cool again

    Do i need HoT masteries for any of the vendors or at all for legendary armor?
    If so which ones?
