Guild Wars 2 Jeweler Leveling Guide 0-400

Guild Wars 2 Jeweler

Overview

Jewel crafting isn’t a particularly cheap crafting profession (though this guide costs as little as 3g in total) the joy of Jewel Crafting however is the knowledge that it can be a very lucrative craft to have, but will also serve all your characters well at level 80.

Unlike becoming a Chef or Artificer, leveling this and the remaining 5 professions can take some time (about an hour if you have all the ingredients) and if you aren’t concentrating, a little longer! There are a large amount of ingredients involved in leveling Jewel Crafting so it’s important you remember what you have and haven’t purchased. It’s also recommend you check your crafting bank in the event you already own some materials.

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.

I noticed in the 0-75 you mentioned  ring discoveries but don't show the bands in the initial component creation list.

"Discover Brilliant Chrysocola Jewel with Mithril Filigree, Chrysocola Jewel"

The last word of that line should be "crystal".  Had me convinced I'd bought the wrong supplies for a minute.  Other than that, GREAT guide!

Love these guides, I have used them several times but this one has to be my favorite. They are so easy to follow! Cost me just over 9g today.

In 0-75 it should have Amber Copper Stud and not Adorned Amber Jewel. Or something like that. You can't get to 75 w/ whats listed.

The further I went through this guide the more trouble I had. I was able to get max level with this guide, but I needed a lot of materials that I had randomly gathered. This guide is unfortunately out of date. It needs a complete revamp. If you want to level you need to make discoveries and there are not enough discoveries per bracket to level to the next one. 

I love the site, I am not trying to cause trouble, I just think that others should know that this is out of date. Please update, the layout is far superior to all other sites I came across.

This guide worked 100% fine for me.

Are you using the "Craft All" button where applicable? I've noticed I seem to get a bonus and/or be more likely to "crit" when using the Craft All button.

Also, just a note, if the guide says Discover XXXXX recipe, then the next step is craft 12 XXXXX's. That means you will end up with a total of 13 XXXXX's. The discovery item isn't included in the number you need to craft.

I easily hit 400 without doing the last item.

Can't make 12 brilliant chrysocola jewels with only 3 mithril filigrees.

First of i'd like to thank you for this guide, it did help me out with getting Jeweler up to 400 but there were also bumps in the road.

I won't complain about the fact that I spent over 10 gold on buying stuff cause the prices might have changed from when you made the guide until now, but there were some things that caused problems for me.

Embellished Brilliant Chrysocola Jewel, only way to make that is by first buying the recipe and learn it, you make no mention of it at all, also to discover some of those last things to make the last push to 400 which include Embellished Brilliant Chrysocola Jewel you fail to mention that THREE of them are needed before you can actually discover those things.

The other failures have been mentioned above so I won't bring them up, other than that good job but still pretty annoying mistakes you made.

I'll fix those up Johnny, I really should have mentioned you have to buy the recipes :) I've updated the costing as well! 

The recpie clearly points out you buy the Embellished Brilliant Chrysocola Jewel, not make them :)

Guide is perfect, however towards the end the numbers have been changed now so it needs to be updated, other than that its a fantastic guide thank you so much :D

I'm not saying that guide is bad but I can't continue because I didn't get the 50 lvl to discover the other recipe. If I need to use +50% then you will need to specify,

Also, in 300-325, it says to make 3 Mithril Filigree, but you really require 13, which it says at the top. But, the amount of ingots is inconsistent with making 13 filigrees.

350-400 does not account for a lot of the materials required.

I've found you no longer need Globs of Ectoplasm or Pristine Snowflakes to make this work anymore. Everything else stayed the same. Cost me 10g after selling things back.
