They have been improved to ascended stats already so now are better than exotics and top tier. As far as I know Ascended weapons will not be released as of yet, only rings and backs for the moment.

Thoughts?

This is awesome news for people going for a legendary but not so awesome for people who are not (me). Now i must get a legendary or wait for ascended weapons to be top tier again.

I must now grind for 500 hours to have 8% higher stats on my weapon.

You realise eventually youll get ascended gear as good as legendaries right? It is a minor buff to 1% (if that) of the player base that worked their kitten off.

…and this is after we were assured before release that legendary weapons would be no more powerful than exotics. I at least expected them to hold off on this change till the Ascended stuff was available.

Did they improved stats for people who re-skinned their legendary items to other exotics for different stats? If not, there will be a lot of poor sons of kittenes that better get grinding for their legendary again.

The difference being that legendaries are actually a level higher than ascended gear. Meaning that when legendary level gear comes out, the legendaries in the game currently will be buffed yet another level and anyone with ascended weapons will once again need to grind out another tier.

It says Rarity spectrum… the base stats will still be the same as Ascended….

/sigh.

Legendaries will be buffed to be equivalent to ascended once those ascended items are in the game. Read the blog please.

I know, that’s what i said. The blog also says ascended gear is between exotic and legendary meaning that there is yet another tier of gear above ascended.

Wow, from how it read i assumed this woudn’t happen until the Ascended weapons got put in.

That’s pretty bad as legendary owner now have a damage advantage over everyone until we either do some seriuos farming (for a legendary) or until the ascended weapons arrive.

From https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/linsey-murdock-unveils-new-high-end-ascended-gear/

You’ll also see more Legendary items in the future and an update to our existing Legendary weapons. Legendary items were always intended to be on par with other “best-in-slot” items. So fear not, all existing Legendary weapons, which are currently on par with Exotics, will be upgraded to be on par with Ascended weapons at the same time that we add Ascended weapons to the game. Thus Legendaries will remain “best-in-slot” items.

Note the use of on par in that statement. Nothing about them being a higher tier in terms of stats. They are another tier in terms of difficulty to acquire, not stats.

Legendary weapons won’t be updated to ascended stats until ascended weapons are added to the game in the far future.

(Edit follow up: Looks like they got updated early by accident, we’re going to fix this now they should be the same as exotic)

If this has happened, then I suspect it’s been done in error. There is no mention of this in the patch notes. I’m still dubious about the claims at this point however.

I am seriously disappointed in this community of minority naysayers. There’s hardly anything to do at 80 more than a few times before the boredom kicks in. Yet, when Anet tries to address this issue people freak. The game will have no depth and no longevity outside of log in here or there for special events. The majority that doesn’t post wants MORE depth.

The few thousand posters claiming to be the majority are what is going to make the game stale, boring and too easy. Legendary weapons are already easier to get with obsidians becoming easier to get along with other requirements. Go ahead and pound the table for a GW1 clone. It wasn’t that good. Otherwise, how did Wow get so big during that time? GW2 can be MORE than a niche game and I hope Anet wants someting more from GW2 then a GW1 clone.

See anet – the people you are chasing don’t even like the game you made before this.
They will consume the content, annoy the remaining players and move on.
They have done this in every mmo.

You need to break out of the group think and get back on track.

On another note, the people I feel most sorry for a your art dept – they created one of the most beautiful worlds I have seen in a game (no joke – I would stop and pan the camera around just to enjoy the view) and now you are making people play in little boxes and spam chat in LA about needing a dungeon group.

That is the biggest shame in my eyes.

Wow, those legendaries are way better than exotics.

You be hitting for like 200+ more dmg on a crit than everyone else just with one legendary weapon, not includin legendary gears lol?

Well, I guess you better have one or get owned by those that do.

Unless infusion slots get crazy stats, that is BiS by a noticable margin.

How about you scrap the stat advantage of ascended/legendary altogether? How about you stick to horizontal progression only, and not destroy WvW and everything PvE-related outside the new content? How about the ONLY thing they offer is extra agony defense, so that those dungeon locusts can have their progress and optimal farming spot? How about not adding a gear treadmill? I know you guys refuse to acknowledge it, but it IS a gear treadmill, and 50hrs+ for 1 piece is NOT OK.

Or do you want this to be a repeat of other memorable history lessons, such as SWG NGE, and, oh.. I don’t know.. The Titanic??

Have to admit this made LA map chat a little more fun last night, for the few seconds I was in game.

Half the people talking about the sudden Legendary stat increases thought Legendary weapons were already better than exotics, stat wise, before this patch. This included two people that actually had Legendary weapons.

A good portion of people thought Ascended weapons were in game, and that is why Legendary weapons suddenly were better. People using alt-codes to link the new patch items didn’t help convincing these people otherwise.

Two people said they were afraid to use their Legendary weapons with new stats because they were scared to get banned for exploiting. lol

I’m done with these forums. Every thread here seems to devolve into the same noise about how Anet deserves to fail because of X fotm issue. It’s something new every week, it’s disgusting to see over and over, and makes conversation about other topics near impossible. They should just rename general discussion to QQ chat and be done with it. This new patch brought dozens of changes and new content to the game, and Anet is doing a stellar job at adding things like new areas, events, and lore, but everyone here is still hung up on this one single thing.

My advice to people looking for civil discussion on the game to check out reddit, the front page there is filled with relevant news and discussion without the constant whine.

I am right because Legendaries has a regular upgrade slot thus can fit any sigil you want into it like say 1 stack of power per kill up to 25.

Ascended only has baked stats with infusion slot.

Whatever, glad they patched this fast. Kinda funny they let it slip through though.
