Guild Wars 2 Leatherworker Leveling Guide 0-400

February 1, 2013 - 2:45am -- Xerin
Guild Wars 2 Leatherworking

Overview

Becoming a Leatherworker allows the player to craft medium armour pieces, inventory bags and runes. The armour created by Leatherworking can be worn by engineers, thieves and rangers.

Similarly to the guides before it, this is more expensive than Cooking or Artificing. 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). When becoming a Leatherworker, 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.

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.​

Becoming a Leatherworker allows the player to craft light armour pieces...

I'm not a leatherworker, but I assume you meant medium.

Where do you find these concept art pieces? It's like every time I come here I find a new piece of art -- and I have searched A LOT of art.

"Tailoring Vendor" -> "Leatherworking vendor"

Thanks :) I tidied up the 150-225 process, merging them together. I've just tested it and it's spot on :)

I have followed the guide so far and I've found that I ran out of some materials (Large Claws) and that some materials are not on the list at all: Silk Scraps and  Intricate Totems. I'm now stuck at 371 and out of money :/ It was good up until the end!

hi, i've got a problem im stuck at lvl 134 and cant make the following steps. can somebody tell me how to proceed and what i probable did wrong because i took i think all the steps.

im stuck at: "Make 160 Cured Coarse Leather Square" because you need lvl 150 for it.
