Weaponsmithing is a crafting discipline that a good many players will pick up because the items that can be made are usable by almost everyone. As the name implies, you will be able to make items like greatswords, swords, daggers, shields and a few other things as well. Guardian, Warriors, Thieves and Rangers will especially be drawn to this discipline because of the vast amount of upgrades to be had.
In traditional MMOs, items are the reason for playing the game, for griding through dungeon after dungeon to obtain the highest-level gear possible.
Given the fact that Guild Wars 2 challenges this by essentially removing that gear grind, the role that all items play in the game, armor and weapons, takes on a different meaning.
Another extra footage video from the Yogscast team and this one is about crafting. It has a healthy amount of information for the obsessive watcher to glean and comment on. If you have seven minutes to spare and not talk about March Madness – give this video a go.
Elixabethclairec has uploaded a rare but much wanted crafting video from the Press Beta. We found it standing next to the Loch Ness monster and Elvis. Take a snapshot because no one is going to believe you.
