GW2: Chuka and Champawat Vol 2: Ambush

Moving on to the next stage in crafting this Legendary Short-Bow. Unfortunately this section is all about crafting and collecting items to give to people so it’s probably the least interesting and most difficult part of the Chuka and Champawat collection (minus crafting the actual legendary of course)!

First of all, you need to have completed the first collection Chuka and Champawat Vol 1: The Hunt to be able to have access to the Ambush collection and you need to have a Huntsman at least level 450.

There are 16 parts to this collection, some parts have to be done in a certain order. Here’s what it looks like in the achievements tab:

16. The Hunt – Salvage this weapon (crafted from the first tier collection “Vol 1: The Hunt”) to collect the “Spirit of The Hunt” which is used to craft The Ambush.

This chest contains, “Expertise in Advanced Short-Bow Crafting” and “Box of Recipes: The Ambush” which will now allow you to craft the second tier of your Legendary Chuka and Champawat Short-Bow, The Ambush.

So, to craft The Ambush, you will need:

  • Prismatic Lodestone
    • 1 Glacial Lodestone
    • 1 Molten Lodestone
    • 1 Onyx Lodestone
    • 1 Charged Lodestone
  • Jar of Luminesce Polish
    • 250 Piles of Bloodstone Dust
    • 1 Amalgamated Gemstone
    • 10 Thermocatalytic Reagents
    • 10 Master Maintenance Oils (20 Jugs of Water and 3 Piles of Crystalline Dust per 5 Oils)
  • Expertise in Advanced Short-Bow Crafting (from the “Tips and Tricks for Short-Bow Crafting” Chest for completed the Vol 2: Ambush collection)
  • Spirit of The Hunt (Salvaged from The Hunt)

This is what The Ambush looks like. It’s very similar to The Hunt but less wonky and a bit more symmetrical. This is what all that effort and materials were for… totally worth it so far… not. Will be for the end result though (and the Tiger Cubs)!
