GW2: How to make 1000 gold – Leveling tip

by manylaughs on March 7, 2014

Just a quick leveling tip, today: You can have all the crafting disciplines on one character.

You can only have two active, but that doesn’t mean anything, really. It doesn’t cost you a single copper to deactivate one craft and activate another.

If you’re trying to level up, take advantage of this. Let’s say you’ve leveled your tailoring a little, and you’ve reached the point where you don’t get XP for making bolts of jute, anymore, but you still have lots of jute scraps. Simply switch to leatherwork, make your bolts of jute as a leatherworker, and you’ll get XP.

You can do this for lots of crafts, so take advantage of it and get that XP.

CORRECTION: Thanks to Huung for catching a mistake. It does cost to switch crafts. The reason I got this wrong, is at the very beginning levels, when it actually doesn’t cost anything to switch crafts. I confirmed this in the game. But as you level a craft, it appears it will cost you some money to level. I’ve updated this info in this post: GW2: Going for 1000 gold – Switching crafts.

Switching to a craft you already have levels in costs 10c per level – it really starts to stack up at higher levels where you’re facing up to 50s to switch to a fully trained skill. The only way this could really work is if you only switched to a new craft once you’d max leveled one.
(I feel really bad that my first comment is a criticism! I’m sorry! I love the blog, please keep up the awesome job!)

No problem Huung. Thanks for catching that. I should’ve checked the info. I’ll make a little post about it.
