GW2 Flashpoint Guide: How to Get the Legendary Armor

Bmichaellogan May 16th, 2017 Guild Wars 2    MmoGah News

Ever since the release of Heart of Thorns, Guild Wars 2 players have been speculating about legendary armor. On May 2, with the launch of Living Story Season 3 Episode 5 Flashpoint, the long-held dream has finally become reality: legendary armor exists. 


The process to get legendary armor in GW2 may seem daunting at first. For those who shy away from the PvE aspect of the game, it may be disappointing that legendary armor can only be obtained by participating in raids. However, the process is not as bad as it may seem. MmoGah will share this guide which is written by an elite gamer – Paige McGovern to help you. 

Now, let's break it down.



How to Get the New Legendary Armor

To get the legendary envoy armor, you'll have to complete the following steps:

  • Obtain The Lost Art of Armor Crafting from any boss in the Forsaken Thicket raid.

Double click to consume and unlock the Envoy Armor I: Experimental Armor collection.

  • Complete the collection to obtain the first tier of precursor armor: Experimental Envoy Armor.

Collect all 18 items from all three wings in Forsaken Thicket by defeating bosses and interacting with the instance. 

Upon completing the collection, you'll receive the Chest of Experimental Armor.

      - Double click to choose a set of light, medium, or heavy ascended armor as the first tier to the legendary envoy armor.

      - This chest unlocks the Envoy Armor II: Refined Armor collection.

  • Complete the second collection to obtain the second and final tier of precursor armor: Refined Envoy Armor

Collect all 14 items by creating and infusing Crystalline Heart in various areas in Heart of Maguuma.

Upon completing the collection, you'll receive the Chest of Refined Envoy Armor

      - Double click to choose a set of light, medium, or heavy ascended armor as the second tier to the legendary envoy armor. 

  • In the Mystic Forge, combine each piece of Refined Envoy Armor with Gift of Prosperity, Gift of Prowess, and Gift of Dedication to craft the legendary armor.

Each Gift has its own materials (listed below) that must be collected before they can be crafted individually in the Mystic Forge. Once made, Gifts are account-bound, legendary-rarity materials.

New Gifts must be crafted for every piece of armor that a player wants to make legendary. 


Explanation of Terms


  • Gift of Prosperity

Combine Gift of Craftsmanship, Gift of Condensed Magic, Gift of Condensed Might, and 15 Mystic Clovers to create this item.

  • Gift of Prowess

Combine 25 Legendary Insights, 50 Obsidian Shards, a Cube of Stabilized Dark Energy, and an Eldritch Scroll to craft this material.

  • Gift of Dedication 

Combine 5 Chak Eggs, 5 Auric Ingots, 5 Reclaimed Metal Plates, and Gift of the Pact to make this final item needed to obtain legendary armor.



  • Forsaken Thicket

The very first raid in guild wars 2. Its entrance is in Verdant Brink. It consists of three wings (Spirit Vale, Salvation Pass, and Stronghold of the Faithful), each with three bosses. 

  • Bastion of the Penitent

The second raid in Guild Wars 2. Its entrance is in Bloodstone Fen. It consists of only one wing, but has four bosses to defeat. 



How Long Will It Take to Craft the Legendary Armor?

Legendary armor will take some time to farm all the components. Some materials can be bought, some need to be earned, and a few are locked behind time gates.

For example, the necessary crafting component called Legendary Insight can only be obtained a maximum of 13 times in a week from defeating all raid bosses. This maximum number comes from the assumption that a player has the time, knowledge, and skill to clear all raid wings during this period.

Given that a full set of legendary armor requires 150 Legendary Insights, players beginning their armor set today can expect to complete it in three months at the earliest. 

GW2 players who are heavily into raiding may already have a lot of Legendary Insights saved up, in which case they can begin crafting very soon. 


It’s a good time to jump into guild wars 2. If you want to buy gw2 gold and gw2 items to make the game more fun, I want to recommend a reliable seller – MmoGah. As a safe and efficient GW2 Gold and GW2 Items seller, MmoGah has good reputation among elite players and is the best place to buy gw2 gold. It is really worthwhile for you to have a try!


How to Get More Legendary Armor Pieces

Armor pieces can be crafted after players have completed the second collection (Envoy Armor II: Refined Armor). Talk to a Master Craftsman, Leatherworker, or Armorsmith to unlock the legendary recipe of your choosing. 

The new crafting recipes require Envoy Insignia. Purchase Envoy Insignia from Scholar Glenna in one of the raid wings. Each insignia costs 25 Legendary Insights and 5 gold.

For each piece you'll also need one Lesser Vision Crystal and two more crafting materials, whose type depends on the armor you're trying to craft. Heavy armor requires two Deldrimor Steel items, while medium armor needs two Elonian components, and light armor requires two Damask crafts.
