I'm slowly gathering stuff to craft exotic heavy armour and I've been doing ok with getting the Ecto's and Orichalcum but man, the Gossamer is super hard to get.  What have you guys found is the best way to acquire Gossamer?

There is a chance of salvaging it from level 75+ light armor. I believe the better salvage kits increase the chance of gossamer instead of silk.

Yep, best bet is salvaging high level light armour with high level salvage kits. There's also a chance of it emerging from Heavy Bags dropped from high level humanoid enemies (like the Risen), but the chances are slim. Another option, if you happen to find yourself salvaging an over-abundance of silk while looking for Gossamer (or if silk happens to be rather cheap on the trading post), is to use the Mystic Forge in Lions Arch to directly upgrade a large amount of silk, into a small amount of Gossamer. Recipe should require 250 Silk, 1 Gossamer, 5 Crystalline Dust and 5 Philosophers Stones (bought from the Mystic Forge Vendor with Skill Points), and I think returns only 20-30 Gossamer. Edit: Can't believe I forgot the best method of all - putting a request into our own marketplace on this site. There's bound to be a few guildies who have hoarded away some random Gossamer for a rainy day that they'd be willing to donate to a good cause.

High level Light armor that salvages Silk Scraps has a chance to salvage Gossamer. Wiki says level 75+ for Gossamer, but tbh I don't really pay attention to the item levels, because I salvage every Light (or Medium) armor drop I get, because we can't harvest nodes for cloth and leather. Other than random bags, its the only source for those mats. The type of Kit does not matter, Gossamer is not a "rare" material, so there's just a base chance to salvage it instead of Silk. Its the same with Ancient Wood or Orichalcum from salvages.

Yeah I put in a request for some gossamer on the marketplace but there are a few people ahead of me and I need quite a bit more than it lets me request anyway. Thanks for the tips!
