The race to craft the first legendary weapon in Guild Wars 2 is over and, unfortunately, the winner has to be declared via photo finish. Players have been frantically gathering up rare materials and grinding out karma and skill points to be the first to obtain one of the coveted purple shinies. A forum post appeared (with images as proof) on 9/23 by Xalkyrie stating that he had the materials and currency required to construct the legendary staff, The Bifrost, but wasn’t able to purchase the final obsidian shards due to a bugged event in the Strait of Devastation. Even after the event was cleared, there was another issue with obsidian shards not stacking properly, which caused more delays.
Congratulations to those who have accomplished this arduous feat, but for me the real race is still ongoing, however, as I want to see the first aquatic legendary weapon. Come on, folks, let’s see those epic tridents, spears, and harpoon guns!
