So this is my first time ever posting on here... feeling just a tad nervous,
anyway i have recently after one hole year of playing gw2 have decided i should up my game with crafting, Had been sitting at 194 of artificer for way too long am now at 270 thanks to Gillies with his awesome post on materials!

I know most people from what i have heard/read starting with the crafting first whilst lvling there toon, me on the other hand just cared about the shinneys! have come to the realization that i really do need crafting if i am ever going to get nevermore.

So i started the cheats way, i bought every material from black lion whilst envying those who could craft ascended and has legendary mainly adatra his great sword is awesome! i can not begin to tell you how much gems/gold i wasted just buying materials to get to 194 (Yes i followed a few guides)

So late last night i actually decided to go out and find some hard wood (no pun intended)
spend about another three hours today with Gilles's (materialists post) gathering... can sure say i am saving a hell of a lot of gold, my next project is to get unlimited gathering tools for obvious reasons... but that shall wait for when my gems are not going on keys hehe.

Just show that sometimes taking the cheats way out is not always faster or more effective :(
Thankyou to those who have helped me with the understanding of crafting.

p.s if you are looking for me i will be with the soft and hard wood whilst holding the silver!

3 hours, I had no idea I had that sort of staying power...

bet you got plenty of hard wood in that amount of time.

Lots and lots of wood!! Thankyou for posting about where to find everything though :)

3 hours back and forth reading your post whilst gathering! After reading my post again today it does sound odd haha! Certainly meant to have no pun LMFAO.

I had a website that showed the least amount of materials needed to get to max level.... also at the lowest cost. Will have to find it for you but it is worth a look at.
