I'm at 380 Jeweling without having used ectos. I'll let you know when if I manage it xD.

You can get up to 390 without ectos. Once you get there, nothing gives you xp except for the rare jewels. My previous post should have stated 390 (fixing now).

When you buy dinnerware, do you buy each knife, fork, and spoon individually or do you buy a boxed set with a certain number of each? If you want a matched set for a given number of places, you buy the box. The point of the armor boxes is convenience for those looking for a full set of the same prefix.

which would make sense if it was difficult to craft the 6 individual pieces. as it is, its easy to craft the six individually AND cheaper.

Using your analogy, it would be like the knife, fork, and spoon cost $3 each but for the convenience of buying them together, you're willing to pay $15 for the box and then $9 for the utensils (plus another $3 for the fork you have to give). If the box to craft than the items separately, I could see this making sense since you could eventually recover the cost of the box if you make enough sets. With the recipe costing quite a bit on top of the armor costing the same whether you craft it using the box or each piece individually, it would be stupid to waste the 1g 28s (cost of the wine), 12 skill points (crystals), and 50 mystic coins plus the mats to craft the chest piece just to get the recipe.

If you're following that, disregarding the wine, skill points, and mystic coins, you're still paying the cost of crafting 7 items to get 6 items back since you have to turn in the chest piece to get the recipe in the first place.

So on the wiki it gives the recipe to make recipes for box's of armor. http://wiki.guildwar...Satchel_Recipes
So does that mean if I combine 5 Elonian wine, 20 crystal's, 50 mystic coins and an explorer's draconic coat will I get the recipe for box of explorer's draconic armor? Or if not does anyone know the mystic forge recipe for Recipe: Box of Explorer's Draconic Armor?

Not really sure what the point of the Armor Box recipes is. The Mystic Forge recipe just gives you the recipe to make a box of Armor. Once you learn the recipe, you still need to go craft the box which costs the same amount of mats as it would have taken to craft each item individually.

Simple answer: crafting booster. 0 ectos.

You'll still need to make about 2 or 3 items once you hit 390.  Everything else is grayed out and doesn't give experience except for the rare jewels.

In Topic: 3 cheapest crafts?

20 December 2012 - 02:04 AM

I've been able to max out any of the crafting professions with a net loss of under a gold now. They're all pretty cheap if you do it properly and are patient.

There's one Lv80 in 1 day during the early 3 day launch of gw2.  it was under 23hr I believe.

He didn't do it purely from crafting. Got to level 60 and then his guild fed him mats. You can get 20 levels by just getting each crafting profession up to around 200.

Ok, have we had the first person get to level 80 without leaving the starter city yet? I bet we have - MMO folk thrive on self-made challenges :)

I did it back in October. Don't know if I was the first in game though I think I was the first to post about it on Guru.
