Eternity has been a subject of some controversy regarding the upcoming Legendary Armory feature in Guild Wars 2 and ArenaNet decided to put the rumours to rest with a definitive explanation on how it will function.
Legendary Armory will become a new system in Guild Wars 2 on July 13, 2021, and it will generally be a quality of life improvement for the players. However, the nature of crafting the Eternity greatsword posed some issues for the devs and the community since two other legendaries, Sunrise and Twilight, need to be sacrificed to create this one.
Various interpretations of unlocking these greatswords with the Legendary Armory popped up and ArenaNet recently put the matter to rest with an explanation on the forums .
Here are the rules:
- If you bound Eternity before the release of Legendary Armory, you will get both Sunrise and Twilight unlocked in it
- If you bought an Eternity from the Trading Post and add it to Legendary Armory, you will still get all the unlocks
- You will not get Sunrise and Twilight unlocks if you craft Eternity with the new Mystic Forge recipe that involves token items
In other words, previous reports of not getting the unlocks if you already own Eternity will not bear fruit once the update goes live and the new feature arrives.
