Guild Wars 2 Armorsmith Leveling Guide 400-500

In this guide we provide players with a walk through of how to quickly reach 500 in Armorsmithing.

Overview

In this guide we take your Armorsmithing level from 400 to the maximum of 500. If you haven't seen our original Armorsmithing guide, you can find it here. The joy of leveling Armorsmithing to 500 is the fact it's so simple based on the very limited combinations though it is sadly, very expensive. This guide is specifically aimed at completing the leveling process quickly and with all the materials, takes around 5 minutes.

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.
