Acquisition of PoF Armor/Weapons

Hello all~
In the interests of Fashion Wars both to benefit myself and others I thought it might be nice to have a thread where we could discuss all the new armor and weapons that have so far been released in PoF, and how to go about actually acquiring them. I am going to put all the information I currently have into this top post, and would appreciate anyone either contributing to the post in a reply, or correcting me if you see I have something wrong or written in a confusing manner. Because of the new forums I will be unable to edit the original post after 15 minutes of its creation, so I will instead be quoting this one and making any significant changes in future replies so be sure to skim through to see if anything has been added. On that note I'll continue on:

Bounty Hunter Armor:
Light, Medium, Heavy
The recipes for this armor set can be purchased from Priory Historian Elisa, a merchant who moves to a different map each week apparently. At the time of this post, she is currently in the Crystal Oasis map, located on a cliff [here] by the Temple of Kormir WP. When I visited her, she only permitted me to buy the recipe for the shoulders, but based on something I heard from another player who said they bought the gloves recipe from her, I believe she might sell a different recipe each week. When I spoke to her and went through her dialogue, it lets you ask her where she thinks she'll be going next, and the first part of her response was "Definitely the Riverlands. The amount of history there is downright inspiring." so we can assume this will be her new map in the coming week.

Warbeast Armor:
Light, Medium, Heavy
As of yet I have not discovered where the recipes for these armor sets are acquired from, however I have seen that the recipes and some of the components needed to make them are listed on the TP at the moment so if anyone out there knows how to acquire them, this information would be beneficial to those who have yet to discover them though if you have the money to throw at it you can always buy it off the TP I suppose.

Elonian/Spearmarshal:
Light, Medium, Heavy / Light, Medium, Heavy
This set I also do not have much information currently about, all I am aware of at the moment is that you get boxes for the Elonian Armor throughout the story, however I have yet to come across the Spearmarshal set. I placed these two under the same category as the Spearmarshal set essentially seems to be an upgraded form of the Elonian set.

Funerary Armor/ Weapons:
Light, Medium, Heavy
Greatsword, Staff, Shield
I only included a few of the weapons above, just to make people aware of what set I was talking about. These armor and weapons pieces are sold by an NPC called the Primeval Stewart in the Tomb of Primeval Kings, in the NE corner of the Desert Highlands map. When you enter the tomb he will be in the first room on the left, however he wont offer to sell you anything until you've completed the achievement "Last Rights" and been awarded the title "Primeval Scion" and the item "Book of Awakening to Light." After you've done this when speaking to the Stewart he'll offer to show you the Primeval Armory, where you can see the Funerary Weapons, Funerary Armor Boxes, and 3 exotic trinkets, a Ring, Amulet, and Accessory, with the name Mournstone that have the stats Power, Precision, Ferocity, and Condition Damage. Of these items only the 3 trinkets are immediately buyable, the armor and weapons saying you need to complete the corresponding collection achievement before they become purchasable. When speaking to the Stewart he then lists 7 different achievements, each involving a collection.
The Seven Achievements-
1. Walk the Land
2. Glorify the Golden Heart
3. Exaltation of the Guardians
4. Washing the Brown
5. The Collection of Tribute
6. Recitation of the Litany of Deeds
7. Triumph of Conquests
Each of the first 6 achievements listed above awards an armor box upon completion, the seventh being excluded from this. As of yet I do not know if you must complete every achievement before you are allowed to purchase any of the armor/weapons, or if after you complete one of the achievements it unlocks a corresponding armor box from the merchant so any further clarification would be wonderful to have on that matter. Also keep in mind to purchase anything from the Stewart requires Elegy Mosaics, which can only be acquired through completing Legendary Bounties.

Crystal Desert Reward Track:
If you look at the link [here] you'll see that by completing the Reward Track in either WvW or PvP you can acquire Sunspear and Awakened weapons, in addition to Elonian, Bounty Hunter, and Warbeast armor. Thought this was worth a mention just in case people were wondering.

I know its a lot of text but I hope this helps out anyone whose been looking for some of the new skins and been stuck and I hope that if anyone notices anything I missed that they will share that information here on this thread so that we may all benefit from it. Thank you all and have a nice day~

    I couldn't find any of them in the wardrobe. I see no point for me to get them If I can't see how they look on my characters with different sets first.

  • For the Funerary set you can buy the same armor slot as the box at the Tomb of the Primeval Kings once you complete the achievement. The weapons are unlocked for completing the 7th achievement. (the Legendary Bounty one)

    They wont be until you unlock them I believe, but you can go to this link [here] to find all the chat codes for all of the new armor sets so that you can preview them to your hearts content~

    As you've stated, the Elonian armor set is acquired throughout the PoF story. The most recent patch has made the Insignia of the Spearmarshal discoverable during crafting, which of course is needed to "upgrade" the Elonian set. Requires Oiled components. I'm at work currently, but the recipe for the insignia is up on the wiki.

    The warbeast set is similar to the spearmarshal, in that it requires a special crafting component. I.e., [Special item] + Oiled armor component. The warbeast component is again discoverable while crafting.

    Ah I see, I'm not to familiar with the crafting system as a whole so I hadn't thought to look into that, thanks for the info!
    Took a little bit of searching but found the Insignia of the Harrier for the Warbeast set and the Insignia of the Spearmarshal for its respective set.

    Not a fan of any of the new medium sets I take it? I thought the bounty hunter set was pretty nice, planning on making a deadeye hunter whose branded theme. Uses it as a disguise to go out into the branded zones and track down bounties and other strong marks.

    Great thread, good job

  • Warbeast armor recipes are drops from bounties, at least I had gotten a book of warbeast chest recipes (could only pick 1 out of it) off of the Legendary Forged Rampager in the darklands waypoint in the desolation, I assume they just drop in general from forged bounties? Not sure about this, but would fit the theme.

    Spearmarshal recipies are bought off of heart vendors that sell the spearmarshal weapons and one of the merchants in the Lily of the Elon, they are called Page of Spearmarshal Boots/Coat/Glove etc

    elonian armor and weapon recipes is sold by heart vendors in crystal oasis or desert highlands. But the sunspear inscription for weapons is currently undiscovered.
