Description

The Obsidian armor, also known as FoW armor, is a set of prestige armor art available to all 10 professions, and is accessible from any campaign via a corresponding access city (see the Fissure of Woe article for details). As with other prestige armor arts, it's only available as level 20 armor. Considering all crafting materials, Obsidian Armor is, by far, the most expensive armor in Guild Wars — although trader prices can fluctuate, the cost of materials alone is typically over 1,000 Platinum.png. (1 Million Gold.png)

The common theme amongst most Obsidian armor sets is, as the name implies, the visible use of Obsidian in the armor. It will be seen as shiny black elements in the armor design (gems, spikes or decorations). None of the caster armor sets have a head piece, except Ritualist, and all non-caster armor sets have a head piece, except Rangers.

All Obsidian armor is crafted with an empty Insignia slot.

Acquisition

Obsidian armor is crafted by the Eternal Forgemaster within The Fissure of Woe. To be able to get the Forgemaster to craft any armor, players must finish the following quests:
