Mystic Forge findings....

Figured I would start a thread on what people are finding using the mystic forge. Not necessarily crafting but it is close.

Note:

You can only combine like color items in the forge. You get a better item through combining 4 other items. However, the item you make won't necessarily be an item you can use. 

One "recipe" posted on MMO that seems like a smart move. I don't think this is an exploit but if someone thinks it is please edit my post and let others know. 

1 x Master's Salvage Kit
1 x Journeyman's Salvage kit
1 x Fine Salvage kit
3 x Mystic Forge Stone

= a 250 use Mystic Salvage kit

I made me one of these today after reading the Reddit thread. I feel pretty sure it's legit, especially since the recipe required a gemstore item (the mystic stones).

I learned this weekend that 4 items of 1 type will yield an item of the same type, at or higher than their level and quality. So 4 axes gave me another axe that was a better quality. This has held true on other tests I've performed. There doesn't seem to be much out there yet. http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Mystic_Forge Anyone have a good source for recipes?

I also read about the Salvage kit. I don't think its s abug. I don't think its an exploit either. Just smart management of your resources. But does the Mystic Salvage kit do anything special?

Lets talk about putting the 4 items of 1 type in the forge and getting a higher level item in return. Does it need to be 4 items that are all blue, or green? I've tried pistols, swords, gloves and nada.

@Pepsi - the mystic salvage kit works exactly like a Master Salvage Kit (the one with the yellow name). The differences: 250 uses (less bags space) and (for me, since I had some gems) less expensive. There are 3 circumstances I use a Master Salvage Kit for: - level 72+ Rare or better items, for a chance at Globs of Ectoplasm - leveling Jewelcrafting. You have a good chance of getting back the gem, which you can then use in another recipe for more discovery XP - Trying to get a specific Rune or Sigil from a piece of gear I use much lower grade salvage kits for my routine salvaging.

Another mystic forge trick is transmuting! If you take a stack of a collectible, just as 50 claws/250 mithril, a sample of a collectible that's one "rank" higher, so if you're using mithril, a piece of Orichalcum, 5 Philosopher stones, and 5 Dust. Put them in the forge, and out pops the higher ranked item. It's not very efficient, I got 21 pieces of Orichalcum, but it's still useful if you have excess of something.

30 x mystic coins Scroll of Spend my 50 skill points 5 x Orichalcum Pistol Barrels 5 x Ancient Pistol handles = Mystic Pistol of Exotic quality Pretty sure this is standard for any weapon, just exchange the 5x handles/barrels for appropriate weapon components.

Finally had enough resources to have a few goes at the high yield "Mystic Clover" recipe and figured I'd throw my result in here. The recipe supposedly has a 1 in 3 chance of yielding 10 Mystic Clovers, with failed results supposedly offering up a decent helping of T6 crafting mats (20-40). The recipe (from Lakshmi's Legendary Weapons Thread) 10x Obsidian Shards (2100 Karma Each from merchant in Temple of Balthazar in Straights of Devastation) 10x Mystic Coins (Daily/Monthly achievement rewards) 10x Globs of Ectoplasm (salvaged from high level Yellow/Orange gear) 10x Crystals (purchased from Mystic Forge merchant at 5 for 3 Skill Points) The results... Try 1. 20 Crystals Try 2. 10 Putruid Essence (Lv 400 Rune component) Try 3. 10 Mystic Clovers

Been a long while since I last made an attempt at the Mystic Clover recipe, but after we opened up the Temple of Balthazar today, I took the opportunity to throw a bunch more Karma into Obsidian Shards and have some more goes at it to see what I got. It's worth noting that the consensus on the official forums is that it's much better to invest in many attempts at the lesser yield recipe to even out the luck factor, but since I last started recording results for the high yield recipe, I figured I'd continue for now. More results... Try 4. 25 Ancient Bones Try 5. 30 Powerful Venom Sacs Try 6. 26 Cured Hardened Leather Squares Try 7. 10 Mystic Clovers Try 8. 31 Ancient Bones

hello Dargron, thanks for sharing that, I am still working on farming enough karma to get my shards, but probably need another few weeks before I can try out the clovers. I wish I started the clover as my first step for legendary components, since the ingredients you get back could put towards other ingredients you need for other legendary components. PS: which legendary are you working on?

Hi Iceblaze, The original plan was to work towards "The Predator" (rifle), but I was a bit underwhelmed when I saw footage of the final product. Now I'm basically just working towards the elements that are common to all Legendary Weapons (Gift of Mastery/Gift of Fortune) on the theory that by the time I finally complete these elements, Arenanet might have introduced a second Legendary rifle more to my tastes, at which point I'll already be a huge chunk towards completing it - or if not, I might use the gifts towards a completely different Legendary for an alt (as they are account bound). The main reason for the huge gap between my Mystic Clover trials, was that I realised that I was better off investing all my initial Karma/Shards elsewhere. The 500 WvW Badges, 200 Skill Points and 100% Map Completion that made up the rest of the Gift of Mastery ingredients were closing in surprisingly quickly, so I switched focus towards first purchasing and saving up the 250 shards needed to complete the Gift of Mastery, and then investing any Karma/Shards beyond this tally into the Mystic Clovers.

The salvage kit recipe has worked since the game launched.  It is definitely legit and I nice way to get more higher level salvaging kits to run with and well all 250 stack together, too.  Means more bag space for other things!  I need to go make more since I have plenty of stones now.  Used to be harder because of stones being somewhat scarcer, but then they put in those achievement chests, that helped!

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D

I'm really grateful for the Mystic Salvage Kit recipe. Thanks so much for posting it! I'd heard about it but had never been able to figure it out to make use of it. Now I don't have to buy a new master's kit after 25 rares anymore. Thanks!
