Guild Wars 2 Crafting FAQ

In Guild Wars 2 there are a total of eight crafting disciplines, of which you can learn two at any given

time. Since each craft specializes in making a particular item type, it is recommended that you choose

one that benefits your character. Even if you only seek profits, each discipline crafts helpful gear that

spans the entirety of the leveling experience and endgame, so depending on market conditions you can

bring invaluable items to others and earn some coin in the process.
