Crafting Levels

Crafting is a great way to level up your character. You can level up 7 times by going from 0-400 in a particular crafting discipline. Make sure to consume a crafting booster for the extra XP. Going from 400-500 in the applicable crafting disciplines will reward you with an additional 3 levels, but at a much higher cost. Chef and Jeweler are two of the cheapest crafting disciplines if you’re trying to level your character on a budget.

GW2crafts.net provides excellent crafting guides for 0-400.
