Guild Wars 2 Tailoring Leveling Guide 400-500

December 10, 2013 - 4:13pm -- Lewis B
Tailoring 400-500

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

Yup but its actually worth the time. 

I lvl up lots of character using this. 

And cleric gossamer insignia were by far the best.

 

Thank you for the guide!

Now when you state 40 Epaulet Panel does that mean 40 Gossamer Epaulet Panels?

This guide is inaccurate, things like you need 40 gossamer spools not 20, really lame.

We altered the spools to reflect your comment. Sorry you feel that way!

Please check the math before posting. 

Your guide says to make 40 Gossamer Epaulets in total, but I have to buy 38 Insignias in total(29 Cleric's, and one of each of the rest).  Then I have to go and make nine different epaulets, and another 32 Cleric's Epaulets, resulting in 41 Gossamer Epaulets.  This makes no sense what so ever.  

Also, if it IS 40 Epaulets that I am supposed to be making, then you need to make 80 Bolts of Gossamer, not 40.  160 Gossamer Scarps= 80 Bolts of Gossamer(not 40, as listed)=40 Gossamer Epaulet Padding.
