Crafting 0-500 Jeweler. The Guild Wars 2 Jeweler is the crafting discipline responsible for creating accessories. Even though Jewelers technically make equipable items, they’re not qualified as gear crafters. Their level cap is 400, while for the equipment crafting disciplines it’s always extended to 500.
The main products that Jewelers can make are:
They also create jewels – the components that determine the stats provided by jewelry. This discipline utilizes materials like metal, glass, and gemstones. The last category is not only used in crafting trinkets but can also serve as item upgrades for the pieces of equipment that have slots for them.
One advantage that Jeweler has over the traditional equipment crafting classes is the fact that every GW2 profession uses accessories and gemstones. At the same time, Jeweler is the only discipline that makes them. Trinkets might not be the most crucial gear pieces in Guild Wars 2, but at least you only need one discipline to rule them all.
VALUABLE JEWELER ITEMS
The 400 level cap creates a significant problem for the Jeweler discipline. It only allows players to craft Exotic trinkets. The slightly more powerful Ascended rings, earrings, and amulets can only be accessed through looting (mostly in fractals) or buying from select vendors. It makes Jewelcrafting the only discipline that’s unable to produce the equivalents to Best in Slot items. That being said, the difference in stats between Exotic and Ascended is not massive – it’s about 5%.
While this mismatch is a significant drawback to the Jeweler discipline, there still are some good reasons for leveling it. While the Ascended accessories are only available through loot, they’re not that easy to get. Not only will it take a while to find, but there’s also the fact that you can’t control the bonuses that you get from a dropped item. The 5% more stats will often not be worth it when the power budget is not distributed optimally. While crafting, you can choose exactly the components that you want. It allows you to get the trinket that will complement your build the most. We recommend keeping the Exotic ones until you get Ascended jewelry with the perfect (or at least close to perfect) stats.
Moreover, you can craft gemstones. As we already mentioned, every GW2 professions can place some gemstones in their equipment. Being able to make precisely the ones that you need to empower your build is valuable. Some gemstones can also be used in Mystic Forge as reagents in some of the Legendary recipes. Of course, the same goes for gifts, but every crafting discipline can make some gifts that are further used in Mystic Forge. A Jeweler can produce Gift of Ice, Gift of Music, Shark Statue and Unicorn Statue.
Another excellent option for Jeweler is crafting the Exotic recipe trinkets. Most of the recipes can be found in various chests. Some of them are located in the open world, while others are rewards for finishing specific dungeons. They don’t have bigger numbers than other Exotic accessories, but they can work well with specific builds. For example, completing Citadel of Flame can net you a recipe for Eternal Flame – an excellent amulet for builds focused on condition damage.
