Harrier stats in raid armor chest?

Soooo I was planning to build something like this for my druid with the recent change to GotL, but I come to realise harrier isn't quite so accessible as I thought

I heard raid can be used to get harrier trinkets but I'm not sure about armor.
I'm planning to get harrier stat armor through magnitite shards, does the raid set provide that stat?

    It does. Harrier insignia and inscription can also be discovered through crafting, but making armors out of that can get rather pricey. As of the recent patch, ascended harrier accessories can be obtained through the heart vendors in some pof maps.

  • Harrier's is available in the boss specific boxes (ones with healer stat variety). You can buy these from Glenna, such as white mantle or other special skin weapons and trinkets - however, she doesn't really sell armor and the generic magnetite shard healer's boxes from the aerodrome do not have it at the moment. If you have had luck with drops, Harrier's can afaik be selected from the boss specific armor boxes, "Chest of Slothasor's gloves" for example.

    U can just buy the recipes for exotic harrier from the TP and either craft exotic or craft the insignias and transmute ascended boxes in MF. It's pretty accesible tbh although the mats are somewhat expensive for the insignias. Same for weapons i guess?

  • It costs about 4,5g to craft the weapon inscription (known as "Mordant Inscription") and 10g to craft armor insignia (known as "Insignia of the Harrier"). Ofc way more if buying insc/insignia directly from TP.

    Are you sure about that? Which heart vendors are those?

  • Sephylon.4938Sephylon.4938 Member ✭✭✭✭

    If i recall, all heart vendors around vabbi and the desolation. Crystal Oasis and Desert Highlands have the marshal stats, not sure about Elon Riverlands.

    Vabbi

    costs 1.5-2k trade contracts and 15-20 pulsating brandsparks

    Yes, found them, ty.
    But sadly way too overprized. If I ever have to take those stats I'll choose my mag shards to get them.

    8k contracts for 1 accessory, 1 amulett and 2 rings + 55 laurels + xx pulsating brandsparks is way too ridiculous. The contracts alone are a joke if you get 5-10 from events.
    I'm not in the mood to grind open world again after having done in HoT and a little bit on the LS3 maps. Getting those 8k is way harder than the stuff before.

    You can help yourself out by using exotic magi trinkets+back with plat. doubloons. Its ofc in no way the best build, but it should do until you can replace the exotics with ascended harrier ones.

    You loose around 15% boon duration, and a lot of power, but shouldnt reflect negatively on your might uptime. For fury, it might be a bit tight, havent really tried how much boonduration is really necessary for 100% fury uptime on two groups. I just know 95% is enough ^^

    Dont know, are there exotic harrier trinkets for karma?

    It's not like there's much use for trade contracts anyways.

    Leave it to anet to amp up the grind to try to disguise the total lack of content in the expansion they sold people.

  • How do you buy an ascended harrier back item? Is it only available via PoF maps? It seems you cannot via shards, chosing either sabetha's crucible, xera's backpiece or burden doesn't give the harrier stat.

    Are you sure? If my memory serves me right, you can select harrier on Xera's backpiece. I think wiki has not been updated yet.

    I used the banner backpiece from the pof story achievement for the harrier stats.

    I followed the wiki, indeed. Then it’s not updated yet. I’m a bit hesitant to spend 600 shards and find out it doesn’t have harrier stats.

    Thanks for the answers

  • Can confirm, Xera's backpiece has harrier and so should the other back items.

  • Thanks!

    Off to get it tonight
