Maybe im behind the times or maybe this isnt true at all i was just checking out gw2db and i looked for helm in order to find the zephyrite helm because i forgot what it was called. Anyways long story short i found this which looked like legendary armor. Are they coming out with it? or is this some glitch.

heavy armor looks like heavy plate karma so idk

I know what those are! Those are the armors the NPCs in WvW wear. The NPCs are classified as legendary, so they will one shot you, and to top it off, they are lvl 82. Depending on their profession, they have a different suffix to their name. Legendary Defender, Legendary Warrior, etc.

They’ve said creating armors is much more difficult than weapons.
I don’t think we will be seeing legendary armors soon.

Those armors have been in the game since release.

There are more Legendary Items coming, but we don’t know which slot they will take (most likely jewelry, but time will tell)

There was a mention in the blog post which described the future plans for 2013, in which legendary accesories/trinkets will be appearing this year… will they still make the 2013 mark?

Also will ascended armour have particles effects? or cool animations? cause fractal weapons currently have a white trail.

Last thing, when are you planning on releasing more info about legendaries? Since in the blog post you mentioned that you weren’t ready to go into details, so was wondering…. aren’t you ready yet ?

Thanks!

I would assume that legendary armor would be the same stats as ascended, since that seems to be the route they are taking….no gear treadmill. Either way, I’m super pumped for when it rolls out.

Reasons legendary FOOD would be so awesome:
- Infinite uses. The convenience of never having to craft more.
- Universal appeal. Like Omnomberry Ghost, you get a cool aura without interrupting your weapon of choice.
- Because Chef is AWESOME!

You obviously don’t understand what a gear treadmill is because adding another tier above ascended wouldn’t be a gear treadmill.

A gear treadmill is when content is continuously increased in difficulty and new gear tiers are constantly being required to complete this content. Hence it being called a gear treadmill because it goes on and on.

You don’t even need any ascended gear at all to do FOTM 48.

It is highly likely that the fact that we are getting lvl 500 crafting this year is tied into Ascended Armor and Weapons.

You won’t see legendary armor any time soon, you will see Ascended Armor in 2013 for sure though, yes.

Then it’s confirmed… legendary back pieces!

“We aren’t quite ready to go into all the details here, but what I can say is you will see a specific way to build precursor items on your way to a legendary. On top of this, you’ll also see new legendary weapons and new types of legendary gear in 2013.” (source)

In all seriousness, if the blog post made less than a month ago was sincere and legendary armor is off the table, then that only leaves back pieces in terms of “new types of legendary gear in 2013”.

I don’t mind the ascended tier of items, it just bothers me that they are so time gated.

I think they did the right thing to roll them out slowly so there isn’t a huge imbalance from people who can afford to get everything immediately but it makes it hard if you want to play multiple classes.

I think in a thread made about that post, it was stated to be trinkets.

Trinkets being amulets, rings, earrings/assessories and maybe backpieces (idk if backpieces are considered trinkets but I think so). These will likely exist solely for the legendary stat changing change, but I think – baselessly – that they may give the footstep effects or even something like the Prophecies divine aura.

I really don’t see the point of legendary trinkets. They don’t have any visible graphics. Plus, legendaries have the same stats as the highest tier, which is ascended and we already have ascended trinkets.

Ah, but Legendary will always have the same stats as the highest tier… even when the highest tier is raised.

they said, we’ll be able to change the stats on our legendary weapons every time we want in the future. so, when this system will also be implemented on the the legendary armors/trinkets it would be awesome and a really good reason to get them!

Pointless, since legendary gear isn’t a stat upgrade (it’s the same as exotic – and in the future, ascended) but purely cosmetic, and jewelry is invisible.

Gear grinds are bad! Players ask for better stats, than ask for tougher enemies to kill. This does not improve gameplay. It only makes the game unplayable for many with players with lives.

Gear grinds also promotes false elitism. Elitist players feel as if they have more skill. But the reality is they have become less skilled. Due to not having to fight to their full ability.

Do you feel forced to grind for legendary weapons right now?

No?

Good, the situation would be the same for Legendary armor. At most, it would have the upcoming change that allows you to switch between preset stat combos on Legendary weapons. The amount of stats themselves would be equal.
