GW2 Crafting Guide - Learn all the Crafting Professions! (2022)

Guild Wars 2 Crafting Guide

Crafting is one of the staples of the MMORPG genre. Different games use this feature, either as a money-making method or as a way to get the most powerful items. There's a lot of variance in the crafting systems and the impact that they have on the respective games. That being said, almost every MMORPG has some semblance of crafting.

In Guild Wars 2, crafting is divided into nine disciplines. There are three armor crafters - Armorsmith, Leatherworker, and Tailor. Disciplines responsible for creating weapons are Weaponsmith, Huntsman, and Artificer. Finally, we have the three remaining ones – Chef, Jeweler, and Scribe. Each character can have two of them active at a time, but you can spend gems on buying Additional Crafting Licenses to increase this number up to four.

In Guild Wars 2, crafting will cost you more gold than you’ll get from it overall. Eke your GW2 Gold budget cheap, fast, and safe on our website.

At the same time, you won't lose your progress when you "deactivate" a discipline. You will just have to pay a moderate amount of money to get it back (the maximum cost is 50 silver). It means that you can have all nine disciplines maxed out on a single character, but you're going to spend some money on swapping if you decide to do so. If you feel like you need access to each crafting class, we recommend scattering them over 3-5 different characters.

There are seven tiers of recipes in GW2 crafting. In order to access the higher ones, you have to level up your crafting discipline. The only way to do it is by producing items. Maxing out a discipline requires a lot of materials that you're going to use solely for getting the crafting experience. The recipe tiers are Novice, Initiate, Apprentice, Journeyman, Adept, Master, and Grandmaster. The Grandmaster tier is only available for armor and weapon crafters as well as Chef. There are two important breakpoints in the progression of your crafting disciplines: level 400 (Master recipes) and level 500 (Grandmaster recipes).

Mechanics of GW2 Crafting

The mechanics themselves are relatively easy. All crafting takes place in the Crafting Stations. In order to create an item, you have to approach a station associated with the specific discipline. When you do it, you'll open the crafting panel. It has five tabs: Discovery, Production, Material Storage, Bank, and Wardrobe.

The Discovery panel allows you to discover the new recipes that your character doesn't know yet. You can do it by combining materials and components of an existing recipe. Every time you do that, you will receive bonus experience for your crafter. If you don't have experience with crafting, it's best to use some external sources that list the recipes available in the game while you're in the Discovery tab. However, some of the more valuable crafts can only be unlocked with special consumable items – recipe sheets.

The Production part displays all the recipes that your character already knows. It's the most standard crafting window that you're going to use if you need multiple units of the same component or item. You just have to click on the recipe and it will display all the necessary ingredients (raw materials and the specific item components). You will see that the recipe names are written in different colors – it shows their difficulty in relation to your crafting level. The red ones are too difficult to make. The orange, yellow, green, and blue is all possible to craft. You can also produce grey items, but they won't reward you with any crafting experience. Besides the item recipes, there are ones that let you refine raw materials into more intricate components.

The remaining tabs provide access to your bank, materials, and cosmetic items. They're not as important, but the total access to your material storage without leaving the Crafting Station is exceptionally convenient.

The Value of Crafting in Guild Wars 2

The economy of crafting in Guild Wars 2 is very specific. Most professions don't access to any valuable recipes before hitting level 400. At this breakpoint, the equipment crafters unlock the Master Craftsman tier that allows them to craft Exotic gear (not best in the slot, but definitely worthwhile) and special items called gifts. Gifts are used as components when making Legendary weapons. Legendaries are the most powerful and prestigious weapons in the entire game. The sheer amount of expensive materials required to make one of these things from scratch is really formidable.

At level 500, the armor and weapon crafters get access to another class of items – Ascended. The Ascended armors are the best in the slot for every profession. Crafting them is a multi-step process that's also time-gated. A character can only use one Ascended recipe per day and it applies to all the items, but also some of the components. Crafting a full medium or light armor set from scratch takes 36 days – that's why people buy and sell their components for a high price on the Trading Post. Ascended weapons are stronger than Exotic and equal in power to the Legendaries. In terms of raw stats, they can be considered best in the slot. A lot of players grind for the Legendaries because of the cosmetic value and the prestige that comes with it.

The crafting recipes before level 400 are almost worthless. It's caused by a relatively small amount of low-level players. Guild Wars 2 veterans who make new characters have multiple ways of getting past the early levels (either with Tome of Knowledge or with a leveling strategy). At the same time, many players still level the crafting disciplines to be self-sufficient in terms of Legendaries or just to have access to every recipe in the game.

Leveling a crafting discipline is really unusual since the materials that you use on crafting items will almost always be more valuable than the final products. As we established, a lot of people level their crafters, which creates a high demand for materials in all the level tiers. They then use these materials on low-level items that nobody wants to buy since very few people are actually leveling their primary professions in the traditional way. This process is an investment – you spend gold in order to access the recipes that you want. We strongly recommend that you save some gold through farming, before starting to level your crafters. It's best to get everything you need to reach level 400 and then start using the bought materials to make items and level up.

The rarity (or quality) of items is divided into seven tiers: Basic, Fine, Masterwork, Rare, Exotic, Ascended, and Legendary. Aside from the leveling process, you shouldn't really bother with anything below Exotic.

GW2 Crafting Disciplines

As we mentioned, there are nine crafting disciplines that can be divided into three categories. First of all, let's talk about what each one of them does.

Armor Crafters

Armorsmith – the discipline responsible for creating heavy armor. It's used by the soldier professions: Guardian, Warrior, and Revenant. It uses cloth and metal materials. Besides the armors, Armorsmiths can also make insignia and runes, as well as four gifts: Gift of Darkness, Gift of Light, Gift of Entertainment, and Gift of Weather.

Leatherworker – the crafting class that produces medium armor. It's the category worn by the adventurer professions – Ranger, Thief, and Engineer. They use leather and cloth as their primary materials. Just like all the other armor crafting disciplines, they can also synthesize insignia and runes. Leatherworkers can create three gifts: Gift of Nature, Gift of Stealth, and Wolf Statue.

Tailor – the crafter that makes robes for the magic-using scholar professions – Elementalist, Mesmer, and Necromancer. It utilizes cloth and leather as the base ingredients. Tailors can also craft runes and insignia. This profession has access to two gift recipes: Gift of History and Eel Statue.

The majority of runes are shared between all the disciplines. However, some of them are exclusive to a single one. For example, only Tailors can produce Superior Rune of the Scholar that works really well in power DPS builds based on critical damage. Leatherworker and Armorsmith also have some powerful exclusive runes.

Weapon Crafters

Weaponsmith – the discipline that produces all types of melee weapons in the game. They are swords, greatswords, daggers, axes, maces, hammers, and spears. Besides, they also make shields, sigils, and inscriptions. Their main components are metal and wood. Finally, the Weaponsmith discipline gives access to two gift recipes: Gift of the Moon and Gift of Metal. If you're interested in playing as a DPS, it will probably be the most valuable crafter for you, since most of the best damage-oriented builds utilize melee weapons.

Huntsman – the crafter that focuses on the non-magic, ranged weapons, like longbows, short bows, pistols, rifles, and harpoon guns. They make the off-hand torches and warhorns too. As all the weapon crafters, they can also produce inscriptions and sigils. They use leather, wood, and metal as ingredients. Huntsmen can craft two gifts: Gift of Wood and Gift of Spiders. The ranger weapons are really useful in the open world, and some specific DPS builds.

Artificer – this crafting discipline synthesizes the weapons and off-hands that are associated with magic. These items are staff, scepter, focus, and trident. They can also make inscriptions, sigils, potions, and tonics. It's another class that uses wood and metal as the primary materials. Finally, they can create three gifts: Gift of Energy, Gift of Souls, and Gift of Lightning. The magic weapons are not extremely popular, with the exception of staves that are a core element of basically every support build.

Other Crafting Disciplines

Jeweler – technically, it's an equipment crafting discipline, but you can only level it up to 400. As the name suggests, it uses metal and gemstones to create jewelry – amulets, rings, and earrings. It's the only class that produces gear used by every single GW2 character. There's a catch though – while their items are really strong, they're not exactly best in the slot. It means that the min-maxing hardcore players will still rely on getting their jewelry as loot from fractals and raids. Besides trinkets, Jewelers can also produce four gifts: Gift of Ice, Gift of Music, Unicorn Statue and Shark Statue.

Chef – this crafter creates consumable food items and dyes. Chefs have the same tiers of recipes as other disciplines, but it doesn't apply to their ingredients. Furthermore, they can create three gifts: Gift of Color, Gift of Water, and Vial of Liquid Flame. Chefs are a really useful discipline in the endgame when you need a lot of the most powerful consumables.

Scribe – a unique crafting discipline that's only useful for the guild-related endgame content. Instead of the usual Crafting Stations, they use the Aetheric Assembly Device located in guild halls. The Scribe places a special item called schematic inside this device and waits for it to build the item. Scribes utilize all the types of materials in their recipes. They can craft guild hall decorations and special consumables, including the ones used in World versus World. Finally, Scribes have access to three exclusive sigils: agility, concentration, and transference. Scribe recipes often are very expensive – whole guilds collect the materials needed for their hall decorations. Scribes don't craft any gifts.

Besides, most of the crafting disciplines have access to creating some types of personal bags and boxes.

Mystic Forge

Mystic Forge is a special type of crafting station that can be accessed from multiple locations across Tyria (including Lion's Arch). It's not directly associated with any of the crafting disciplines. In essence, all Guild Wars 2 characters are free to use it, no matter what's their character level, and if they have any crafting professions maxed out. The Mystic Forge provides access to multiple unique recipes. It's mostly known for being the station where Legendary weapons are made, but there's more. You can also use it to promote materials into a higher tier, change stats on your Ascended armors and weapons or create valuable consumables, blueprints, miniatures, and tonics.

Next to the Lion's Arch Mystic Forge, there's a vendor called Miyani. She sells multiple materials and components used in this unique crafting station. You won't buy anything for gold though, Miyani trades in a particular currency - Spirit Shards. You can earn them for reaching a new level threshold on a maxed out character, for the Daily Completionist meta-achievement. They can also be found in many chests and loot boxes. Beyond that, Miyani can supply certain gifts in exchange for materials. Using the Mystic Forge has been a little tricky in the past and a lot of players lost tons of gold and items. There have been some reworks since then, so you don't have to worry about that, as long as you're smart about the recipes that you follow.

Best Mystic Forge Products

If you're a player who's interested in crafting a Legendary weapon, you probably already know which one you're going for. The choice will depend on your favorite builds and aesthetic preferences. After all, you're making the Legendary weapon, so it looks cool, and you can use it as much as possible.

However, players who are not currently striving for the Legendaries, at last, can also find some useful recipes in the Mystic Forge, if they look close enough.

Combine Fine Salvage Kit, Journeyman's Salvage Kit, Master's Salvage Kit, and 3 Mystic Forge Stones to create a Mystic Salvage Kit that works identically to the Master's one, but has as many as 250 uses. It's not a must-have item, but it's good to have it in your inventory.

Promoting materials allows you to use lower tier materials and convert them into a smaller amount of higher tier ones. This feature is most often used to promote T5 mats into the T6 since they are used in all the most valuable recipes. In order to do so, you will need 250x T5 material, 5 Philosopher's Stones, a single piece of the T6 material that you want, and 5 Piles of Crystalline Dust. The amount of received T6 materials may vary, but it should average around 30. Promoting lower-tier mats has significantly higher ratios, but it's rarely useful.

To swap stat points on your Ascended gear, you're going to need five Globs of Ectoplasm, Anthology of Heroes, a new inscription/insignia (with the desired stats), and your piece of Ascended equipment. Combine them, and you'll get the altered Ascended item. However, if the primary item has any runes, sigils, or infusions, you're going to lose all of them. Its skin will also change to the default crafted one.

You can use the Mystic Forge to attune your Ascended rings. It will provide them with extra infusion slots. They are extremely useful for players who want to clear the higher level Fractals of the Mist. You can use these slots to get extra Agony Resistance – this stat is necessary to start surviving in some of the more difficult fractals. The recipe requires an Ascended ring, Philosopher's Stone, Agonized Essence, and +1 Agony Infusion. However, you can only do it once per ring, increasing the infusion slot count from 2 to 3.

Mystic Forge also provides access to unique crafting materials (like Mystic Clovers) and multiple gifts. The full list is Gift of Might, Gift of Condensed Might, Gift of Magic, Gift of Condensed Magic, Gift of Crystalline Magic, Gift of Ephemeral Magic, Gift of Fortune, Mystic Tribute, Gift of Prosperity, Gift of Competitive Prosperity, Gift of War Prosperity as well as all Gifts of Mastery and all Gifts of Legendary Weapons.

You don’t need to make more than one of any item while leveling.. Since Jeweler and Chef are the only professions that don’t use Fine Crafting Materials, they are the best complimentary discipline for any other discipline.. Here are the crafting materials I got for both of them:. You probably do have enough to make some.. If you do you can make some level five weapons or armor.. You can get a lot of discovery points making things like runes and sigils if you buy the rare components on the trading post.. Second, sometimes items don’t get sent.. If you have never used it before, I would make it a goal to sell and buy at least one item within an hour of starting Guild Wars 2.. And was able to make this…. This 5% will be charged whether the item sells or not and even if you take the item off the market.. Trading Post Basics: Buying / Selling Make a goal of at least buying and selling one item your first few hours of playing GW 2.. You can make rare items for the 35, 50, 65 and 80 level (and exotic items for level 80)..

Materials, menus, and skills - it can all be a bit much. Here's everything you need to know about crafting in Guild Wars 2.

You'll come across lots of Recipe Sheets just by naturally playing the game but, given how many recipes there are, the chances that you'll find the exact recipe you were looking for just by random chance isn't very good.. Try not to resort to this unless it's a material you can't get yourself for some reason (for example, some items need sigils that a different discipline needs to make for you).. This means that you'd order x amount of an item and every time someone sold that item on the Black Trading House, it would be sold to you.. You can keep a stack of 250 of one item in the Material Storage and there's a slot for every possible crafting item.. The items you're using must be in your inventory, bank, or material storage.. Not every combination of items works, though, and it won't let you combine items that don't go together.. If you've put in the correct items to discover a new recipe but not enough of a particular material, a black and blue preview of the recipe will appear.. Items with grey names will not earn any crafting experience for you The higher level you are, the more experience you'll need to level up For disciplines that max out at level 500, you'll be able to craft exotic gear at level 400 and ascended gear at level 500.

Since gathering does not only yields crafting material, it also earns you experience for gathering achievements, I recommend that everyone should buy appropriate crafting tools appropriate for the zone in which they are in, whether they plan on doing much crafting or not.. Lastly, when using the bank tabs from crafting stations, it’s important to note that you still need to have items in your personal inventory in order to craft with them.. Having the tabs at the crafting station simply means that you can transfer things between your personal inventory and the bank without having to leave the crafting station.. There are eight crafting disciplines in Guild wars 2: weaponsmith, huntsman, and artifice all make weapons; armorsmith, leatherworker, and Tailor all make armor; jewelers make accessories and chefs make food.. There is no fee to learn a new crafting discipline: crafting trainers are always found on your crafting stations and crafting stations are always marked on your map.. If you have a crafting material in your personal inventory that is not showing in the discovery pane inventory list, it means the items cannot be used to discover a new recipe.. Every discipline has clearly defined level tiers consisting of 75 level stretches where you’ll be using the same material, for instance, from level zero to 74 Tailor will be using jute cloth, but at level 75, it will switch to wool cloth.

Time to hone some new skills

As in almost any MMO, Guild Wars 2 has a robust crafting system that will let you gather materials and craft a wide variety of items, both for personal use and to sell to other players.. This will let you gather any ore veins, wood, or plants that you see in the game world; all of these will be marked on your mini-map as you travel, and multiple players can collect from the same collection item, so don't worry too much about collection.. The same merchants who sold you your tools will sell you salvaging kits, which you can use on many items in your inventory (especially armor and weapons you don't need or can't use) to break them down into their constituent parts.. Pistols, rifles, and bows are largely what you'll be focusing on as a huntsman.Weaponsmith: Most melee weapons will come from this craft, including daggers, hammers, axes, shields, and swords.Tailor: Creates light armor for spellcasting classes, as well as cloth bags.Leatherworker: Creates medium armor, as well as leather bags.Armorsmith: Creates heavy armor, as well as inventory boxes.. Can make items wearable by any class, so a decent choice if you can't decide what you want to make!Chef: Creates consumable items that can be eaten for a short-term boost of some sort, whether to an attribute, experience gain, chance to find magical gear, and so on.. When you decide you want to learn a trade, head there and talk to the master craftsman standing near their station to pick up the relevant crafting ability, then head over to the nearby crafting station to see what you can make.. Many of the crafting professions will ask you to take the raw materials that you've been gathering and refine them somehow before you can actually use them in recipes.. Generally, you'll want to click on the items that you want to craft, then work backwards from its ingredients until you discover how to make them all.. When you have the ingredients together for the item you wish to craft, go ahead and make it!. You can feel free to fool around with the ingredients you have available to you (and it's well worth doing so, just to see what happens, especially since you can't waste any ingredients since the game won't let you proceed until you have something to craft), but here's a tip to get you started.. Most crafting professions have some kind of "insignia" that's used to determine the kind of weapon or armor that results from a recipe.. You can combine these insignia with the basic crafting recipe for an item in the discovery panel to create a new kind of item, and learn a new recipe to boot.. However, if you wanted to make a pair of boots with +Vitality instead, you could first craft a Vital Jute Insignia, take that to the discovery panel, and combine it with the Rawhide Boot Upper and the Rawhide Boot Sole to make a set of Vital Seeker's Boots..
