Guild Wars 2 Weaponsmith Leveling Guide 400-500

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

In this guide we take your Weaponsmithing level from 400 to the maximum of 500. If you haven't seen our original Weaponsmith guide. The joy of leveling Weaponsmith to 500, similarly to Artificer, is the fact it's so simple based on the very limited combinations. Unfortunately, it is very expensive.

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. However, due to the current price increase of the below Tier 6 materials there is little value, at this time, of crafting Weaponsmithing to 500.

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.
