Guild Wars 2 Armorsmith Leveling Guide 400-500

December 10, 2013 - 3:04pm -- Lewis B
Armorsmithing

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

Total Cost: Around 130g with Buy Orders.

crafting runes til 440 works better and can give money back when chosing the right one.
