I crafted my full set of heavy ascended armor with Knight’s stats (toughness, power, precision) for my Guardian today. 🙂 It cost me 370 gold in total including recipes.
One thing about crafting ascended armor at the moment. Try to craft the bolts of damask yourself once a day rather than buying them straight off the trading post. The price of crafting one manually is half the price of buying a bolt of damask from the trading post. I bought all 25 bolts of damask from the trading post because I’m impatient, and I’m rich. Don’t be like me unless you have tons of gold you don’t know what to do with!
