I discuss how to craft PVP weapons and armor using the Mystic Forge in the Heart of the Mists in GW2.
I also cover:
- What the Glory rank vendors sell and how those items are used
- How to salvage (“disenchant”) gear to acquire crafting materials
- How to apply dyes to gear
- Which two of the four crafting material inputs to the Mystic Forge affect the quality (rarity) of the output crafted item.
I recommend saving your better arcane tokens (i.e. crystals and slivers) to pair up higher-rank Glory or tournament tokens. I crafted the awesome-looking PVP Vigil Rifle in the video using a tournament PVP token paired up with an arcane crystal.
It’s not clear to me how to most efficiently acquire the arcane crystals and arcane slivers, but my guess is that they are acquired by salvaging higher-quality drops.
Mystic Forge = fun :)
Let me know your insights, questions, and feedback.
P.S. Greyf0x created an awesome thread on GW2Guru that tracks the results of crafting with various mats.
