Aurene’s Persuasion – Rifle | Aurene’s Persuasion is a legendary rifle crafted in the Mystic Forge. The rifle is a two-handed weapon that is known for its high single-target damage output and long-range projectiles.
Legendary weapons are a set of high-end weapons that have unique appearances. They have the same stats as ascended weapons, but stat combo and sigils are not locked and can be freely changed when out of combat.
Legendary weapons are crafted in the Mystic Forge using a precursor weapon and the Gift of the Legendary Weapon associated with the desired end result, plus two other Gifts of Fortune and Mastery shared by other weapons of the same generation. Weapons of the first generation, released at the launch of Guild Wars 2, use Gift of Fortune and Gift of Mastery in their recipes, and second generation weapons, released during updates following Heart of Thorns, use Mystic Tribute and Gift of Maguuma Mastery, or Gift of Desert Mastery. Generation 3 legendary weapons have two unique “features” not shared with previous generations: 1) They have a special “kill effect” that sometimes triggers upon defeating an enemy, and 2) They have secondary, unlockable skins themed for the elder dragons.
Since the addition of the Legendary Armory on July 13, 2021, all legendary weapons can be transmuted freely, no longer consuming transmutation charges, and equipped on every level 80 character simultaneously as long as the legendary weapon has been added to the legendary armoury of the account. As of now, every time a legendary weapon is unequipped from a character, the stats on it are reset and the upgrades removed to inventory. If the inventory is full, it will encumber the player.
