Torment resistance plays an important role in Guild Wars 2’s fractals. To get the maximum resistance, you should infuse your rings. How exactly this works, we reveal in this guide.
How do you infuse a ring? To infuse an Ascended Ring, you must place it in the Mystic Forge along with the following items:
It is important to note that the original ring only has one place for an infusion. With the infusion comes the second place.
Where do you get the Mist Essence from? Basically you get the mist essences in the fractals. The vials of condensed mist essence are available from the fractal vendor for 32 silver and 30 fractal relics. They can also be dropped by enemies on difficulty levels 1 to 20.
Chunks of Congealed Mist Essence can be purchased for 96 Silver and 100 Fractal Relics, or dropped by enemies at Fractal Levels 21-50.
The Shard of Crystalized Mist Essence costs 2.88 gold and 300 Fractal Relics or can be dropped by enemies on difficulty levels 51-100.
In addition, the various essences can be upgraded or downgraded.
