GW2: Weaponsmithing Cheap Fast 1-400 Crafting Guide

GW2 1-400 Weaponsmith Guide

This is our final crafting guide for GW2. Here we cover 1-400 Weaponsmithing and provide the fastest and cheapest way to level this profession. Please note that we present to you a material list for each set of levels, and that you should use this to post on the TP asking for supplies, rather then directly buying them, which should allow you to pay less, and spend less GW2 Gold. It is possible to gather the items needed yourself, however while lowering the cost of your materials, doing so does increase the time needed to level your Weaponsmith 1-400.

    This slightly confusing.. when you say 4x ‘Reg. 150’ Inscriptions, does that mean I can choose any one 150 req. inscription and make 4 of them?

  2. blackheart says:

    In the different steps, you will note that it states you will need different inscriptions. Those are the requirement level inscriptions. Doesn’t really matter which one, as long as they are the correct level. You can refer to this site… GW2 DB Weaponsmith – Recipes for more info.
