Help me getting Sinister gear
Are you looking for exotic or ascended?
Asecended trinkets and backpieces can be bought in the LS3 maps quite easily.
For weapons and armor you do need crafting:
- 400 if you make an exotic inscription/insignia and MF an existing ascended item (you can make exotic weapons and armor at this level too)
- 500 if you want to make the item outright. You also need this level if you want to buy ascended boxes from the WvW vendor as you need to craft one of the items to exchange, e.g. https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Grandmaster_Tailor%27s_Mark
I don’t believe the random drops in WvW contain any Sinister stat items.
BTW, why aren’t you going for Viper’s?

The big issue with Sinister gear (and weapons) is getting the Recipe Books u need.
They are Accound Bound so u cant buy them on the TP.
You don’t need the books. The books may be account bound but the individual recipes are not. And they are cheap on the TP
There are sinister accessories you can get from living story achievements. I think they are from season 2.
Sinister crafting recipes drop from chests in Silverwastes, the bandit token vendors sell the insignia.
I think the bandit crest vendor sells some sinister accessories, as well.
If the crafted items are soulbound on use, rather than account bound, you can ask a crafter to make them for you.
If you have heart of thorns, there are vendors on all season 3 maps that sell accessories in which you can select the stats. They cost currency gathered exclusively on those maps. To be sure that sinister is a selectable stat you should check the wiki.
If you raid, you can buy items with selectable stats.
If you do Fractals T4 frequently, you can get weapon/armor chests with selectable stats.
In short, you don’t always have to craft.
