Guild Wars 2 An Introduction To Making Your Own Loot

We’ve put together this Guild Wars 2 crafting guide to introduce you to the crating

system in ArenaNet’s massively multiplayer role-playing game. While the list for

every craftable item is as expansive and vast as the lands of Tyria, this guide gives

you an introduction to crafting in Guild Wars 2.

No matter what profession you are and no matter what race you play, you can craft in

Guild Wars 2. You can have two crafting disciplines active at a given time, which are

activated by speaking to the associated trainer. Trainers are scattered all about

Tyria, but the easiest and most obvious place to look is going to be the major

If you’re having some trouble finding the trainers, open your map and click the eye

icon located in the lower left corner. This will allow you to toggle on and off map

icons, including those for crafting trainers. Interacting with a discipline’s trainer

is simple and painless, and the trainer themselves will be able to explain the

discipline in greater detail if you’re curious. If you want to know what each

crafting discipline produces, here are all eight disciplines broken down:

Once you’ve chosen your discipline, approach the appropriate crafting table and

interact with it. This will bring up the crafting window. There are four tabs in the

crafting window: the discovery tab, the production tab, the bank tab, and the

collections tab. Here are some basic tips and notes for each one.

Ultimately, crafting in Guild Wars 2 can be as in-depth and involved as you make it.

If you want to go out and collect all the materials to craft the ultimate staff, you

can do that. Or you can purchase the items you need off the game’s Trading Post.

There are hundreds of recipes to learn through the game’s Discovery system, and you

can swap between crafting skills at any time with a few silver, never losing your

progression from one to the next.
