Guild Wars 2 Huntsman Leveling Guide 400-500

September 6, 2013 - 3:55pm -- Lewis B

In this guide we take your Huntsman level from 400 to the maximum of 500. If you haven't seen our original Huntsman guide, you can find it here. The joy of leveling Huntsman to 500, similarly to Artificer or Weaponsmith, 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 Huntsman to 500.

Total Cost: Around 200g

Yikes! I made it up to about 475 huntsman with stuff I just had......I hope it doesn't cost me much to get those last 25 levels. I only have like 30 gold left o.o

to Natzo:

Master Maintenance oils stop giving exp at level 400.

to khani:

my suggestion is to farm dungeons for gold and tokens, use the tokens to buy exotics for salvaging. it provides a slow trickle of dark globs, ectos, orichalcum, and ancient wood while also supporting you with gold and extra mats (from salvaging the blues, greens, etc) so you can focus your earnings towards getting t6 mats for making inscriptions. use the discovery panel for combining 'unknown' inscriptions and weapons till your 500. creating your ascended mats in between will help boost the process

I made a batch of Maintenance Oils last night that took me up to 425 and the recipe is still orange for me, so I can confirm that they can be a cheap alternative for the initial push past 400.
