ArenaNet has taken to their blogs to talk about legendary weapons in their recently released MMO Guild Wars 2. The post gives an introduction into just why you would want to craft yourself one of the very rare and hard to get legendaries, ranging from pretty colours spewing forth from your blade to even changing what your armour looks like.
Legendary Weapons are the end result of an epic adventure in Guild Wars 2. You’ll travel all over, collecting items and amassing materials to build your Legendary Weapon.
How do you get started? Legendary Weapons are created in the Mystic Forge. We’ve kept the recipe a mystery so the community has a puzzle to figure out, but if you want some hints, many players have been posting their progress on forums. You’ll begin to see some ambitious players wielding Legendary Weapons in game very soon. If you’re more the figure-it-out-yourself type, you can finds hints as to how to craft your weapon in almost every area of Guild Wars 2—WvW, dungeons, dynamic events, crafting, and more—so keep your eyes peeled.
While the process will be a long one, with many fans speculating it could take upwards of a few 100 gold or more, it definitely seems to be a avenue that will pay off in the long run according to the latest video released by ArenaNet showing off some of the very awesome looking effects.
