Guild Wars 2 Huntsman Leveling Guide 0-400

In this guide we provide players with a walk through of how to quickly reach 400 in Huntsman.

Overview

Becoming a Huntsman is more expensive than the guides I’ve produced previously but it is notably quicker because of it. It’s also possible to recoup some of the initial outlay of money from the weapons you craft, to then sell back to the vendor or to list/salvage on the Trading Post.

Unlike becoming a Chef or Artificer, leveling this and the remaining crafting professions can still take some time (about an hour if you have all the ingredients). This method however is quicker than Jewel crafting. Similarly to Jewel crafting, there are a large amount of ingredients involved so it’s always worth paying careful attention to what you have and haven’t bought. It’s also recommend you check your crafting bank in the event you already own some materials.

Huntsman are capable of crafting bows (both long and short) torches, pistols, rifles, warhorns and harpoon guns. They can also make consumable maintenance oils that provide buffs similar to cooking or artificing.

Please note: It is always recommend that you place Buy Orders for crafting ingredients or components. This will take a period of time to gather them all, but will save you money.

About The Author

The only game to have distracted Lewis away from MMOG's over the last 15 years was Pokemon Red. Despite that blip, Lewis has worked his way through countless games in the genre in search of something that comes close to his much loved (and long time dead) Neocron. Having written for several gaming networks before Ten Ton Hammer, Lewis likes to think he knows a thing or two about what makes an MMOG and its player-base tick.
