I'm looking for information on how to earn Ascended tier items in Guild Wars 2, to make high-level runs of the new dungeon, Fractals of the Mists, easier. This tier of loot is between Exotic and Legendary for those that did not know.
When running through FotM, you can pick up 'Vials of Condensed Mists', which I can only assume are crafting materials for either infusions or Ascended gear. There are infusions and a Gift of Ascension available for sale (for FotM tokens) from a merchant in the FotM lobby. So, my main questions are:
- How does one use these materials (Vials, infusions) for crafting?
- Are backpieces and jewelry the only items you can make (as ANet said), or has anyone made any weapons?
- Are there any other infusions available?
