Well, looks like I won't be getting a legendary....like ever. That is way to much work for something that is literally nothing more than a different look for your gear. Don't get me wrong, I think legendaries are cool and nice to have in games....but that is way more effort than I would ever be willing to put in for one single item. No thank you.
Well the one thing that was keeping me playing seems to be a super huge grindfest, well i'll be back with the next expansion/major patch i guess.
hmm damn my luck it seems ill need way to many things for my legendaries(yeap plural :P )
4 weapons on mystic, a drop, or a chest will NEVER give you back a prerequisite Stop to spread misinformation, please
Not to be offensive, but this thread is a bit useless and don't tell nothing new. Until pre requisite recipe are posted somewhere, all the effort spent to prepare your legendary is worthless.
And noone said IF and WHEN, those recipe will be published. So far, we know just how to create Malice, go figure
Collect mats, but don't waste your time too much, you will end up disappointed, discovering your last hope is make an idiot on TP rich because noone is willing to share

There you go. I had just put 4 level 70/71 totally random weapon exotic into the forge, and BAM, it spit out the Juggernaut pre-req hammer. If you choose not to believe me, that's your choice, but that is exactly what happened.
It's entirely possible that there's set recipes. This is entirely possible.
But it is also 100% absolutely totally true that you can randomly get the pre-req weapons out of the forge from exotics, or even randomly find it out in the world (at an obscenely low drop rate.)
Well.. you either create challenging content to keep people playing... or go the asia grinder route
There is an exact way to forge them.
Don't you think the famous 2 million accounts sold (stated by Anet) didn't throw billion 70 till 80 exotics on that forge?
Still, i see 1 prereq on TP , 2 at best, available.
I don't want to be mean, but without a video proff, your post count as much as other theorizations/ BS around.
Do you really believe the most rare most requested item of the game just drop using 70 random exotic trash?
p.s. a hint: there is a guild ( who was playing during closed beta) who knows perfectly everything about it (do you remember the famous legendary video with 2 guys with the swords? ). They are the seller on TP, today we speak
Don't track them down, nor harrass them. They don't share a damn, neither if you pray them 1 year.

And once, I made Colossus. Honestly, how would I fake it? In the screenshot, I've linked and previewed the weapon. I can't link somebody else's chat link, and I can't link it from the TP. The only place I can link an item... is from my inventory.
I made it from a random batch of exotic weapons. I can't even begin to dream of affording the really crazy mystic forge recipes out there, not yet.
Edit: not to mention, spreading blatent misinformation would be trolling, and bannable. Not something I plan on ever doing on the MMO-Champ forums.
Moreover, people are selling the legendary pre-reqs on the TP for under 100 gold. Those recipes you're talking about in the mystic forge? Most of them cost HUNDREDS of gold to craft. There's no conspiracy of moneymaking here.
Double PS: The reason there's so few of the various legendary pre-reqs on the TP is because people are buying them. They're a rare, and very very hot commodity.
Noone ever proved a succesful prereq using the mystic forge. Period.
Some posted "Hey i got one using 70 crappy golds"
Linking a picture, of a weapon clearly bough (prove the opposite, c'mon)
Some other claimed crappy 70 exotics, some talk about a perfect recipe, some said they found it from a pirate, farming mats.
Until i will see wiki updated, and a video proof with statistics and the exact kind of component needed to at least enter on that statistic, this is just a bunch of BS.
On my side, an ex guildy wasted 60 exotics 80, just for an other useless exotic. Is it a proof of lies for you?
We have just 2 places where you can read about prereq: reddit and guru, just 2 thread each source. Both claim the BS i mentioned, noone proved nothing, noone edited the wiki. Now tell me why?
Shitty community who don't care to edit a damned wiki?
Or just some kids having fun to spread confusion, so they can sell in peace their prereq for 50g?
People buy them? Really? Ewww, i'm looking forward to meet the guy with 50g honestly gained (not stolen during the exploit phase).

Feel free to choose to live in ignorance. I didn't particularly feel like frapsing my 100+ forges of crappy 70 exotics.
Again, those preset mystic forge recipes? The ingredients for most of them cost upwards of 100 gold or more. Some MUCH higher. If what you were saying was true, nobody is making money.
I guess i'm dreaming an utopia, talking about guildwars community
Yes, nobody is making money. Just some smart players who check continuosly 24/7 the TP, farming the mat they think is selling, is slowly making some golds. Others, able to buy 50g of prereq, are
A rich people who used a credit card with gems
B players not permabanned during the TP exploit days.
C chinese farmers (or players without a life, playing like them)
Long story short: noone ever proved how to craft / get them. Noone edit wiki. So, it's BS. I trust what i see and what i read, not some BS to spread confusion and gain more golds.
I cannot stand 1 or 2 weapon available, on TP, for prereq. I think it's clear.

The components I used for getting Colossus were 3 70-71 exotics (probably a mix of focus/shield/trident and other junky, cheap exotics) and a mystic forge stone.
There. I just revealed the recipe to the world. So magical. This is the same recipe I used to get a lot of junk, and a lot of 80 exotics that sold for ~3-4 gold. It's no longer profitable to really do this anymore, because the price of 70-71 exotics has doubled since I began doing it, since other people are catching on.
I'm not going to edit the wiki for it because the wiki is ridiculously under-edited, full of poor, outdated information from beta. The forums are far more accurate. Putting it on the wiki would only serve to confuse among all of the other contradicting information.
Wiki is supposed to be the only real source of information worldwide. Forums are full of BS.
If you really got it with 3 shitty exotics and a stone bough with gems, type it on wiki. It will be the first stone of a worldwide attempt to figure out a %, if this is the only way to get it. This is how a community grow up together, not in a selfish way "i keep everything for myself, fuck others".
So, if you know you're not lying, take your responsability, edit the wiki, face a possible shame, or live in glory to be the founder of a worldwide research.
Still an utopia, talking about guildwars community, don't laugh, i know you're not going to give a shit, nor i do.
If you don't wake up the mass, the mass don't give a damn.

And I was right.
