    By Bmichaellogan2017-05-12 00:00:00

    On May 2, Guild Wars 2 released its latest Living Story Season 3 episode, "Flashpoint". With this release, exciting new legendary armor and a new legendary weapon (a second-generation torch - the Flames of War) have come. 



    It’s a good time to jump into GW2. If you want to buy guild wars 2 gold and guild wars 2 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. When searching “GW2 Gold” in Google, you will clearly see MmoGah in the second place. Now, MmoGah is trying our best to make the keyword be No.1. It is really worthwhile for you to have a try!


    Some guild wars 2 players are having a bit of trouble getting their hands on the recipe for this legendary and crafting it to add to their collection of awesome weapons. If that's the case for you, then we will share this guide which is written by an elite gamer - Paige McGovern to help you!


    How to Craft the Flames of War

    To learn how to craft this awesome torch in Guild Wars 2, you should first talk to Grandmaster Craftsman Hobbs in Lion's Arch. Then you'll want to start the crafting process. But where is it? There is no recipe listed for the Flames of War in your recipe menu.

    That's because there isn't one. At least not yet. There are other weapons you need to learn recipes and craft before you can work directly on the legendary.

    Luckily for you, this guide will tell you everything you need to know to get your very own Flames of War - from where to get the other recipes, to what you need to craft on each weapon.


    How to Get the Necessary Recipes for the Flames of War

    Head to Lion's Arch. Talk to Grandmaster Craftsman Hobbs.

    - Select Show me your wares.

       - The vendor menu will pop up. Choose the 5th tab: Recipes.

       - The recipes you want are for:

              - Forgotten Brilliance

              - Neophyte’s Beacon

              - Liturgy


    You need to craft each of these weapons in order. Pick up the first recipe, Forgotten Brilliance, for 5 gold and 10,003 karma. To unlock the second and third recipes, you'll need to craft their precursors. 

    Note: Make sure you've trained your Legendary Crafting Mastery well! You'll need it to proceed.
