Kin Guides - Legendary Items (LI)

Getting a Level 100 Imbued LI

What you need: You can a) craft or b) barter with Roving Threats NPC if you have 50 Gift Giver's Brands.  

1st Age or 2nd Age: A second age (SA), one-handed (1H) legendary weapon is just as good as a first age (FA) 1H legendary weapon.  This is because 1H LI's have no inherent stats, and both a FA and a SA LI can level to the same crystal and legacy cap. There is a small advantage in that the FA has a greater number of legacy levels completed post-imbuement, but that can be made up fairly easily.

  • For legendary class items, you'll want a FA LI.

Crafting: To craft, you'll need 1 Blemished Symbol of the Elder King, 2 emerald shards, 7 legendary fragments, and whatever Westemnet mats (ingots, hides, etc.) are required for your class LI's.  Recipes are guild-gated, so ask in kin for a guilded crafter if you don't have the appropriate one yourself.

Upgrading Weapon:

  • Ensure you have 7 legacies on your LI.  If you don't, get a Anfalas Crystal of Rememberance to add a legacy. 

  • Add 3 Anfalas Crystals to your unimbued LI. 

  • Use a Anfalas Scroll of Delving to raise the LI cap to level 70.  Ideally maximize your Item XP level to cap (this allows you to upgrade legacies, reducing scroll costs post-imbuement).

Legacies: Prepare your legacies as best as possible.  See Legendary Legacies Index for the form / to mapping for each class.  You can use Imbued Legacy Replacement scrolls to fix this afterwards, but they are relatively rare / expensive.

Imbuement: Go to a Forge Master and open the Imbuement panel.  Follow on-screen instructions.
