Acquiring The Mastery Gift: Gift Of Jade Mastery

The Jade Mastery is made up of four parts itself:

  • Gift of the Dragon Empire (x1)
  • Bloodstone Shard (x1)
  • Gift of Cantha (x1)
  • Antique Summoning Stone (x100)

Once you've acquired all these items, you'll go to the Mystic Forge and combine them to create the Gift of Jade Mastery.

How To Get The Gift Of The Dragon Empire

To get a Gift of the Dragon Empire, you'll need to combine four items in the Mystic Forge:

Ingredient For The Gift of the Dragon EmpireHow To Acquire It
Jade Runestone (x100)Jade Runestones can be acquired from…

  • various chests found across Cantha
  • the Echovald Wilds and New Kaineng City's Hero's Choice Chests (earned by completing the respective map's meta event)
  • certain Canthan achievements
  • buying it from the Trading Post
  • buying it Chin-Hwa in Diago Ward of Seitung Province for 200 Unusual Coins.
Chunk of Pure Jade (x200)Chunks of Pure Jade can be acquired by…

  • mining Jadeite Veins in Dragon's End
  • from Dragon's End and New Kaineng City's Hero's Choice Chests (earned by completing the respective map's meta event)
  • from Bounty of Dragon's End (earned during the meta event or purchased from Myung-Hee in Seitung Province for 200 Imperial Favours)
  • purchasing them from the Trading Post
Chunk of Ancient Ambergris (x100)Chunks of Ancient Ambergris can be assuredly acquired by…

  • trading 10 Flawless Fish Fillets to any Fishing Supplies Vendor if you have the Local Legend mastery
  • completing certain Canthan achievements
  • chance of being looted when you convert any fish into fillets
  • as a reward from the Shing Jea Fishing Tournament
  • purchasing them from the Trading Post
Blessing of the Jade Empress (x5)The only way to purchase a Blessing of the Jade Empress is to purchase it from Myung-Hee in the Shing Jea Monastery in Seitung Province for 500 Imperial Favours. To get access to Myung-Hee's stock, you need to complete the achievement 'The Jade Vault.'

How To Get The Antique Summoning Stones

There are three ways that you can acquire Antique Summoning Stones:

  • Purchase them from the Trading Post.
  • Choosing it when you receive the Dragon's End: Hero's Choice Chest (this is rewarded upon completion of the meta event for the Dragon's End map, and it can only be earned once per day per account).
  • Purchasing them from Leivas in Arborstone if you have earned the Arborstone mastery 'Globalization' – you can only buy one per week, for the cost of 1 gold, or 10 Green Prophet Shards, or 10 Unusual Coins, or 100 Imperial Favours, or 7,000 Karma.

You need 100 Antique Summoning Stones. If you participate in the Dragon's End meta daily and buy them from Leivas weekly, it will take you 9 weeks to earn enough Antique Summoning Stones for the Gift of Jade Mastery without buying any from the Trading Post.

How To Get A Bloodstone Shard

The only way to acquire a Bloodstone Shard is to buy it from an NPC who is attending a Mystic Forge. The most straightforward one is Miyani, who can be found next to the Mystic Forge in Lion's Arch. One Bloodstone Shard costs 200 Spirit Shards.

Spirit Shards can be acquired in lots of ways, but particularly by:

  • levelling up in an area where you've already completed every Mastery Track
  • gaining experience when you cannot put any more experience into your current Mastery Track
  • using a Tome of Knowledge on a level 80 character
  • completing the Daily Completionist achievement
  • completing steps in the 2nd and 3rd chapters of the base Guild Wars 2 story

How To Get A Gift of Cantha

A Gift of Cantha is acquired by combining four items in the Mystic Forge:

  • Gift of Seitung Province
  • Gift of New Kaineng City
  • Gift of the Echovald Forest
  • Gift of Dragon's End

You can get these items by completing the associated maps. That means you'll need to find every waypoint, vista, point of interest, etc. on the map. Once you've got all four, toss them into the Mystic Forge and get your Gift of Cantha.

The Draconic Tribute is made up of four parts:

  • Gift of Condensed Might (x1)

How To Get Amalgamated Draconic Lodestones

To craft an Amalgamated Draconic Lodestone, combine the following ingredients in the Mystic Forge:

  • Destroyer Lodestone (x10)
  • Crystal Lodestone (x10)
  • Corrupted Lodestone (x10)
  • Mordrem Lodestone (x10) OR Pile of Putrid Essence (x10)

Amalgamated Draconic Lodestones can be purchased from…

  • The Trading Post
  • Super Adventure Box Weekly Trader for 15 Bauble Bubbles (up to 3 per week)

Amalgamated Draconic Lodestones can also be earned by completing certain achievements, opening certain Supply Boxes, and opening the boss chests after completing the Dragonstorm or Drakkar meta events.

Acquiring The Precursor Weapon

The precursor weapon is basically an exotic version of the legendary weapon you're trying to create. You have a few options to acquire the precursor.

The first is the cheapest, but you can only do it once. If you complete two tiers of the 'Seasons of the Dragons' achievement, you'll be given the Fragment of Prismatic Light. You can then take that item to Leivas, a special vendor, and he will allow you to purchase the Prismatic Precursor Selection Box for just 105 Karma. This Box allows you to obtain any Precursor you want (note that it will be account bound). Leivas is found in the Crystal Cave in Seitung Province, or in Arborstone if you've completed the 'Globalization' mastery. As mentioned, you can only get a precursor through this method once.

Second, there's a chance that it will drop from Coffers earned during Canthan Strike Missions, but it's not an effective use of your time to try to farm it that way. It's got a low drop rate in the first place, plus there's no guarantee you'll get the precursor for the particular weapon type you want.

Third, it's possible to buy the precursor from the Trading Post. If you plan to purchase it from another player on the Trading Post, prepare to drop hundreds of gold on the weapon, with varying prices depending on the weapon type.

Fourth and finally, you can craft the precursor yourself. More details on that below.

How To Craft The Precursor Weapon

Your first step to crafting the Precursor Weapon yourself is to get the required recipes. Those can be purchased from Leivas in the Crystal Cave in Seitung Province (or Arborstone, if you've completed the 'Globalization' mastery). It will be called 'Sheaf of Recipes: [Precursor Name]' and will cost 35,000 Karma and 10 Tales of Adventure (every End of Dragons story chapter you play will reward 5 Tales of Adventure once per day).

Crafting the weapon will require four parts:

  • Weapon Part 1 (x1)
  • Weapon Part 2 (x1)
  • Transcendent Crystal (x1)
  • Memory of Aurene (x100)

Once you've acquired the appropriate Sheaf of Recipes, you'll unlock four recipes: two for the body of the weapon, one for the actual weapon itself, and one for a Transcendent Crystal. Those parts are all crafted as you would craft any other ascended component, except they use some Canthan-exclusive ingredients.

The final ingredient, Memories of Aurene, can be obtained through two methods:

Completing Living Story ChaptersCompleting Meta Events
  • Living World Season 3, Episode 2: Rising Flames
  • Living World Season 3, Episode 3: A Crack in the Ice
  • Living World Season 4, Episode 1: Daybreak
  • Living World Season 4, Episode 4: A Star to Guide Us
  • Living World Season 4, Episode 5: All or Nothing
  • Living World Season 4, Episode 6: War Eternal
  • Complete the Dragonstorm meta event
  • Complete Soo-Won's meta event in Dragon's Stand
  • Complete Kralkatorrik's meta event in Dragonfall

Acquiring The Legendary Weapon Gift

The Legendary Weapon Gift is obtained by combining four items in the Mystic Forge:

  • Poem on [Weapon Type]s (x1)
  • Mystic Runestone (x100)
  • Gift of Research (x1)
  • Gift of the Mists (x1)

Once you've acquired all of these items, put them all in the Mystic Forge to get the Legendary Weapon Gift, which will be called: Gift of Aurene's [Legendary Weapon Name].
