I spent about 1 gold 75 silver on all the gold ores needed as well as farming as many as I could, and I dont have enough left for platinum + mithril tiers plus tailoring.

I only had about 3-4 gold in total and now its all gone.

I already have a 400 JC, but I wanted to level an alt, so I just went from 1-300 for, wait for it... 1 gold 27 silver

Here is a prettier guide. It varies slightly from blitzcreek13's guide, which tends to leave you hanging at x71/x75 of each tier. I find that you do need to make a basic necklace of A/B/C instead of just D/E/F/G to hit x75 easily.

You can drop 1 gem type entirely (carnelian is best to drop off due to price) if you use a crafting booster, and only use 2x of another gem type (you can ignore ring+earring of the 2nd gem type).

The result is that you need 322 ore of each tier or 161 ingots. (14 more ingots, but you will definitely hit x75 with this.)

Copper Tier [1-75]
What you will need:
322 Copper Ore
4 Amber Pebble
4 Garnet Pebble
4 Turquoise Pebble
4 Malachite Pebble
4 Pearl
4 Tiger's Eye Pebble

Ingots, Bands, Hooks, Settings
Step 1 - Craft 161 Copper Ingots
Step 2-4 - Craft 7 Copper Bands, 7 Copper Hooks, 28 Copper Settings (Order doesn't matter here.)
Rings
Step 5-7 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Band, Copper Setting, and Amber/Garnet/Turquoise Pebble
Step 8-10 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Band, Copper Setting, and Malachite/Pearl/Tiger's Eye Pebble
Earrings
Step 11-13 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Hook, Copper Setting, and Amber/Garnet/Turquoise Pebble
Step 14-16 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Hook, Copper Setting, and Malachite/Pearl/Tiger's Eye Pebble
Filigrees*** (usually you make this after basic necklaces, but with a crafting booster, you should make the filigrees first, due to the xp-drop off limit.)
Step 17 - Craft 7 Copper Filigrees
Step 18-20 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Filigree and Amber/Garnet/Turquoise Pebble
Step 21-23 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Filigree and Malachite/Pearl/Tiger's Eye Pebble
Necklaces
Step 24-26 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Chain, Copper Setting, and Amber/Garnet/Turquoise Pebble
Step 27-29 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Chain, Copper Setting, and Malachite/Pearl/Tiger's Eye Pebble
Necklaces (Masterwork)
Step 30-32 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Chain, Copper Setting, Adorned Amber/Garnet/Turquoise
Step 33-35 - DISCOVERY - Use Copper Chain, Copper Setting, Adorned Malachite, Pearl, Tiger's Eye

Silver (Nuggets), Gold (Lumps), Platinum (Shards), & Mithril (Crystal) all follow this same pattern.

Here you go, step-by-step and idiot-proof now.

Now if someone wants to send me some excess orichalcum ore... please do :)

And to all you native English speakers saying it's about "ethnocentric elitism" or such: Really, it's not. Nobody is saying "speak English or gtfo".

No, but you are. Maybe you don't realize it, maybe you think you're a cosmopolitan person because you *tolerate* other languages, but you're essentially saying exactly what you claim nobody is saying.

You said it yourself that it hasn't been BAD ENOUGH that a rule need be enforced. This implies that speaking anything but English is WRONG, and that if it reaches a certain boiling point, rules to the effect of "speak English or gtfo" would need to be implemented to bring the "problem" back under control.

That is ethnocentrism, whether you are willing to admit it or not. But don't worry, the colonial empires of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries didn't know that they were being ethnocentric either. And your attitude that you are willing to tolerate it to a certain extent is elitism. Thus: ethnocentric elitism.

As one of my favourite comedians (Jimmy Carr) put it, offence is generally taken, not given. If you find it rude and annoying that other people are speaking the language they know, the problem is yours, not theirs.

Finally, this idea of catering to whoever *might* be listening is just silly. How do you know that the majority of people on map chat at a given time are native English speakers? On my server, past 1am, there's a very good chance that the majority of users on a given map are Korean. Should we disallow all other languages but Korean between 1am and, say, 8am? Perhaps we should require hourly polling to determine the majority language?

Who decided that English was the official language of the world? It's not, it's an unofficial lingua franca. And enjoy it, because 30 years from now, you may not be able to use map chat in Guild Wars 8 unless you speak Chinese.
