Ghostly Infusion Stat Change Recipe?

I’m pretty sure the LWS4 patch notes said they added mystic forge recipes for changing stats on cosmetic infusions. I checked wiki for the recipie and found nothing. Does any one know what it is?

  • has this been overlooked by the dev ? ghostly infusion is not selectable at MF....

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Infusion#Special_Attribute_Infusions

    Says pretty clearly on the wiki

    These infusions (with the exception of Ghostly Infusions) have a Mystic Forge recipe that can change the attribute bonus they provide.

  • the wiki says that, which reflects what is happening now, but the patch note mentioned Ghostly infusion as one of the switchable stats infusion....

    Most likely changed between implementation and launch and the notes were not updated to reflect it.
    I'd suspect they don't want that infusion having stat change as it would devalue the items in place as well as remove any reason to purchase the one you want from the raid vendor/kill Gorse in general.

    • Added Mystic Forge recipes with swappable states to existing cosmetic infusions, such as Celestial Infusion, Chak Infusion, Ghostly Infusion, etc.
    • Added Mystic Forge recipes with swappable stats for rare infusions.
    • Added expertise and concentration infusions.

    Emphasis added.

    Looks as if it's a bug and the wiki documented it incorrectly. (Not all that unusual for the first few days after a patch.)

    Aye it was my understanding that Ghostly Infusions was to be included.

    I wanna get rid of my useless Toughness one already.

    Please Anet give us a hide Chest Armour-option. Tattoo-clad Norns everywhere beg of you.

    Or it could be as i pointed out, changed between builds and removed because of reasons and the patch notes were not updated to reflect it.

  • Sorry, @TexZero.7910 I posted before I read your explanation.
    It's certainly possible that they only recognized potential market implications after the patch notes were written. However, I think it's more likely that demand for ghostlies would go up if people know that they can stat-swap them later.

    Regardless, at best, there's some sort of mismatch between patch notes and what's actually in the game.

  • Thanks for the replies guys. Today, I successfully changed a Healing Celestial Infusion (Blue) into a Condition Damage one, but I haven't tried yet with the ghostly infusions.

  • Hey, I was typing in on google infusions stat swap and our thread shows up. I really hope devs can get back to us to verify this one out. Still holding on to that ghostly.
