Perfect is the adjective used to describe items with the maximum possible stats for its type, specifically:

In addition, a Perfect Salvage Kit allows the player to salvage mods without risk of breaking the item.


The perfect armor rating values for each profession's basic armor differ slightly. Although these values are static, they do require a player to be level 20 to receive the full amount listed.

80 armor rating
  • Warrior Warrior
  • Paragon Paragon
70 armor rating
  • Ranger Ranger
  • Assassin Assassin
  • Dervish Dervish
60 armor rating
  • Monk Monk
  • Necromancer Necromancer
  • Mesmer Mesmer
  • Elementalist Elementalist
  • Ritualist Ritualist


These are the perfect stats for each class of weapon (unless noted, the figures represent damage range). Although perfect weapons generally require at least a rank of 9 of the appropriate attribute to be considered perfect, the requirement for perfect damage ranges can be as low as 7. However, weapons with maximum damage values of a requirement below 9 will not output perfect damage with an attribute rank less than 9. See damage calculation for details.
