Cheapest Ascended Back Items

Ascended Back Items are unique in that they are only obtainable through crafting and certain collection rewards. There are over 20 different ascended back items in Guild Wars 2, with varying acquisition costs. While many of the ascended back items are locked in to a specific stat set, there are several which allow you to select the stats, and those are the ones that we’ll be focusing on. We’ve compiled a list of the cheapest ascended back items in Guild Wars 2 to help save you time and money. The following ascended back items are created through the Mystic Forge.

Mawdrey

Mawdrey is an ascended back item that is obtained after growing three generations of vines as part of a scavenger hunt type quest for the required components. Although there are substantial gold costs involved with the quest for Mawdrey, it is still one of the cheapest ascended back items in the game. Mawdrey is also the cheapest ascended back item to infuse, since it is one of the few items that does NOT require 250 Globs of Ectoplasm (Thanks /u/TemporaryShadow).

The steps to attain Mawdrey are quite complex, but you can find more information on the Mawdrey GW2 Wiki page.
