I've found it particularly straight-forward to get ascended pieces in all slots. All slots except the back.

Weapons    Crafting                      
Armor      Crafting                      
AccessoriesLaurels or Guild Commendations
Rings      Laurel Merchant or BUY-4373   
Amulet     Laurel Merchant               
Back       ????                          

There appear to be many different options for back pieces, however, their acquisition methods seems to be varied, with some taking more effort than others.

If my primary interest is to get an Ascended back piece, what is the easiest option?

  • Consider the path of Mawdrey... I think you'll end up spending close (shy of 50g?) to the cost of others unless you want to farm fractals for quite some time. You'll grow a cool plant that eats bloodstone. Sep 27, 2014 at 0:13

You have differents options, depending on what you are doing in the game (fractals or not), those are the easiest/cheapest ones :

  1. Prototype Fractal Capacitor (Ascended) :
  2. There with Yakkington: A Traveler's Tale
  3. Quiver of a Thousand Arrows

They all need to be made at the mystic forge.
