Legendary Back Item Warbringer Guide

GW2. Guide on how to create your own legendary back item Warbringer from World vs World.

Getting Started

Warbringer is a legendary back item exclusively from World vs World. You will need to play the game mode to earn WvW Skirmish Claim Tickets mostly, and also WvW ranks to be able to buy certain items, other currency from WvW will be needed as well.

I will show on this guide 5 simple steps to organize and make the process easier. First a list of the account bound items that you will need which can be the limitations (time-gated). Then each major Gift needed for the Mystic Forge.

Account Bound Requirements

Warbringer have two main limitations that you need to consider before starting the process:

  • 2800 WvW Skirmish Claim Tickets
  • WvW Rank 350

You can earn a maximum of 365 WvW Skirmish Claim Tickets per week, so the minimum time needed to reach 2800 will be 8 weeks, this is the time-gated element, earned by keeping your participation in WvW over time.

WvW Ranks might take some time, it’s impossible to estimate how much time will take if you just started to play and it will depend on how much time you will spend daily in WvW. I recommend that you use XP boosters and try to be actively playing. I recommend you check my WvW Beginner’s Guide for more information:
