More legendary precursor crafting research: results from 1,400 rare greatswords

3658

Over the past few days I have crafted 1400 lvl 80 rare greatswords (carrion krait slayers and valkyrie krait slayers) in the attempt to get a legendary precursor.

From the 1400 greatswords put into the forge I received ZERO precursors and 71 exotics.

For a batch-by-batch breakdown of exotics returned out of # of rares used to make those exotics:

5/100

11/200

14/200

8/200

1/100

6/100

5/100

5/100

6/100

5/100

5/100

So you get about 5 exotics for every 100 rares thrown into the forge.

If anyone is curious about which exotics were made:

7 berserker's pearl

5 cleric pearl

6 rampager pearl

3 knights pearl

4 valkyrie pearl

3 explorer's pearl

5 carrion pearl

3 breath of flame

4 shaman's avenger

5 traveler's scimitar

3 traveler's orrian longsword

3 carrion legionnaire greatsword

4 carrion tribal greatsword

3 kymswarden

2 khrysaor

5 skybringer

2 naga fang

1 dhuumseal

1 carrion pearl trident (combined 3 of my crafted greatswords with a mystic forge stone to get this)

This has been a net loss of about 130 gold after selling all my exotics. I still have enough capital to throw some more swords into the forge; I'll add those results to these when they're done later but I'll probably quit/take a very long break if I don't manage to get a precursor in that time.
