Guild Wars 2 Leatherworker Leveling Guide 400-500

December 10, 2013 - 3:57pm -- Lewis B

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

Did you discover and refine everything as above? I've ran this on two characters now and reached 500 every time.

Does it hasv to be the exact same discovery list or can i do with what's cheapest on TP at the time? If it makes no difference for progress why pay 4g per insignia rather than 1-3g

Changing insignias shouldn't change the outcome of crafting experience. We just went with what was the cheapest at the time.
