Mistforged Glorious Hero's armor skin to upgraded legendary armor

I'm just wondering before i start crafting my pvp legendary armor based on my ardent glorious ascended armor do i get the Mistforged glorious hero skin ?
if yes then that's a good motivation for me to make it after 2 years+, if NOT can i know just why i have to buy two pvp ascended pieces for a skin??

    Yeah, it doesn’t automatically upgrade to Mistforged Glorious Hero Armor. I’ll grab the quote from Ben:

    Just a summary/clarification.

    Tier 1: Glorious Armor - Exotic, earned from reward tracks. Not required for anything.
    Tier 2: Ardent Glorious - Ascended, purchased with PvP League Currency. Can buy just the skin. Can be upgraded to a legendary version with the same skin
    Tier 2: Glorious Hero - Ascended, purchased using PvP Tournament Vouchers or by having participated in some old PvP events. Can be upgraded to a legendary version with the same skin
    Tier 3: Mistforged Glorious Hero - Ascended, purchased using PvP League Currency or PvP Tournament Vouchers. Purchasing it through the league armor vendor requires you to be PvP rank 100 and have unlocked either the Ardent Glorious or Glorious Hero skin. So if you want the light Mistforged Glorious Hero helmet, you'll need to have unlocked either the Ardent Glorious light helm or the Glorious Hero light helm along with being rank 100. Can be upgraded to legendary version with the same skin.

    So if you want the Mistforged Glorious Hero Armor to be Legendary, you will have to be rank 100 and have boughten the Ardent Glorious Armor. You can then upgrade that Armor to Legendary Status.

  • I could have made a PvP legendary armor a long time ago, but chose to wait for this update anticipating it would have a high cost and be handled similarly to the WvW prestige armor. While it is expensive, I do appreciate having some things in the game denote (somewhat) dedication to a game mode.

    By the way, you don’t need to buy 2 armors, just unlock the skin for Ardent Glorious. Like I noted earlier, this system is just like the WvW one for achieving the highest tier of skin.

  • Tnks guys for the explanation .
