Bringer's and Giver's weapons - crafting bugs

Recommended Posts

Heya, I've been taking a look at the bringer's and giver's weapons that we are able to craft as of the Wintersday 2017 updates. There are quite a few instances where the item names, and in some cases item skins, are inconsistent with other recipes using similar inscriptions.

From the API, https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/items?ids=86589,38321

  • The Giver's prefix is Major Toughness, Minor Healing, Minor Expertise.
  • The Bringer's prefix is Major Expertise, Minor Precision, Minor Vitality.

Inscriptions (item name change only)

Two parts here:

  • The lower tier inscriptions (Green, Iron Plated, Darksteel) weren't renamed from Giver's to Bringer's despite producing weapons with the Expertise stat.
  • There are dashes in some of the names of the giver's and bringer's weapons. I would suggest removing these dashes to be consistent with the other 100+ inscriptions that don't contain dashes.

Weapons (item name change and skin change)

Currently there are recipes where you feed in materials such as "Seasoned Focus Casing" and they return items with the previous tier's skin and name such as "Soft Wood ___". This applies to all 16 of the Steel tier Giver's weapons, 3 Darksteel tier Bringer's weapons, and 3 Mithril tier Bringer's weapons.

Weapons (name change only)

These would reflect the updated inscription name. Their skins are already correct. These changes would apply to the Bronze and Iron tier weapons.
