Legendary Sigils are upgradable components that can be placed in both land and underwater weapons. They provide the same upgrades as the normal Superior Sigil, but the legendary counterpart gives you the ability to swap into any property at any point in time without paying a single copper.
Getting them is not as hard as other legendaries, but do keep in mind that you will most probably have to get up to eight of them to accommodate for both your land and underwater weapons.
Moreover, they don’t have any visual effects, so don’t expect to look more flashy by getting them.
Legendary Sigil benefits
Since those are legendaries and they cost a good amount of time and gold investment, they will naturally come with some benefits.
- They don’t require Upgrade Extractors to be removed.
- You can swap their properties at any time.
- They can be copied to any other character in your account.
How to get Legendary Sigils in Guild Wars 2
To craft one of those sigils, you have to combine the following items in the Mystic Forge.
- Gift of Sigils
- Gift of Craftsmanship
- Gift of Condensed Magic
- Gift of Condensed Might
The Legendary Armory can accomodate a maximum of 8 Sigils, which is enough for every land and underwater weapon on any of your characters.
Gift of Sigils
To craft a Gift of Sigils, you have to place the following items in the Mystic Forge.
- 75 Mystic Motes
- 30 Mystic Clovers
- 150 Globs of Ectoplasm
- 75 Obsidian Shards
You can get this item by purchasing it from the Trading Post or by crafting it yourself.
To craft Mystic Motes, you must first obtain the recipe for it and have rank 75 on either Artificer, Huntsman, or Weaponsmith.
The Mystic Mote recipe can be purchased from different vendors and it costs 25 Pile of Lucent Crystal and 35,000 Karma. I usually go to Frayja the weaponsmith which is located in Trader’s Forum in Lion’s Arch.
After you get the recipe, head over to the crafting station and craft a Mystic Mote using the following material:
- 10 Piles of Lucent Crystal
- Crafted in any station using 10 Lucent Motes that can be obtained from salvaging sigils.
- Symbol of Control
- Symbol of Enhancement
- Symbol of Pain
All three Symbols can be obtained from the Trading Post or randomly by salvaging any rarity sigil.
Mystic Clovers are pretty hard to come by, and they can be a time investment if you don’t know where to find them efficiently. You can get them from PvP and WvW Reward Tracks, Wizard’s Vault, and so many more places.
Check out our other guide to find the most efficient ways to get Mystic Clovers.
Globs of Ectoplasm
Globs of Ectoplasm can be purchased from the Trading Post, or obtained by salvaging both rare and Exotic gear.
- Purchased for or converted from various currencies
- Acquired from PvP Reward Tracks and WvW Reward Tracks
Check the wiki for more information on how to get Obsidian Shards.
Gift of Craftsmanship
You can buy a Gift of Craftsmanship from Faction Provisioners which are located in most major cities. One of these gifts will cost you 50 Provisioner Tokens. There are multiple ways in which you can get those tokens, but they are somewhat time-gated.
If you are in Lion’s Arch, then simply head over to the Skritt Trader which is located in Commodore’s Quarter just under the entrance to Gendarran Fields.
Gift of Condensed Might
To craft a Gift of Condensed Might, you have to head over to Miyani first and purchase the Gifts of Fangs, Scales, Claws, and Bones for 10 Gold each. However, if you already purchased them previously then you can skip this step.
Craft all four gifts in their respective stations, then place all four in the Mystic Forge to create the Gift of Condensed Might.
|Gift of Fangs||
|Gift of Scales||
|Gift of Claws||
|Gift of Bones||
Gift of Condensed Magic
To craft a Gift of Condensed Magic, you have to head over to Miyani first and purchase the Gifts of Blood, Venom, Totems, and Dust for 10 Gold each. Just like the other gifts, if you already purchased those recipes before, then you don’t have to buy them again.
Craft all four gifts in their respective stations, then place all four in the Mystic Forge to create the Gift of Condensed Magic.
|Gift of Blood||
|Gift of Venom||
|Gift of Totems||
|Gift of Dust||
Once you have the Gift of Sigils, the Gift of Craftsmanship, the Gift of Condensed Magic, and the Gift of Condensed Might, head over to the Mystic Forge and place them there to get your first Legendary Sigil.
How to swap sigil properties
To swap the property on any Legendary Sigil, all you have to do is right-click on the weapon of choice and press on customize. From there, you have to click on the Sigil itself and then choose from the list of properties from the menu to the right.
