Guild Wars 2 Leveling Guide: Hot Tips to Level Up Fast

As with any MMO, one of the key focuses of GW2 is leveling. The current level cap for GW2 is level 80. There are many, many different ways to earn experience and level up in this game. Unlike other games where pretty much the only thing that earns you XP is getting kills, Guild Wars 2 allows you to do a variety of tasks such as get kills, complete heart quests, participate in dynamic events, explore the world, complete personal story quests, gather, craft and much more all to earn experience for your character.

Leveling is actually pretty simple in GW2. It is very much possible to level from 1 to 80 in a matter of days. This requires playing quite a bit each day but is possible nonetheless. Several players have jumped to 80 in just 3 days. Below we have outlined several of the best methods of earning tons of experience quickly in-game.

Personal Story

Guild Wars 2 Personal Story

While many players aren’t interested in the storyline of games and don’t care to play through it, it still remains a great way to level your character. Each story part gives you the chance to fight a large variety of enemies that all provide experience points when you kill them. Plus, every time you complete a section of your personal story you’ll earn a level-appropriate piece of gear, a decent amount of coin, some Karma, and a hefty helping of experience.

Renown Heart Quests

GW2 Renown Hearts

On both your mini-map and world map you’ll notice empty hearts. These signify the locations of renown heart quests. These quests are generally things you can do to help NPCs within the area such as kill hostile creatures, collect certain items, and a few other tasks. Renown hearts are easy to complete and offer a generous amount of both karma and experience points. You’ll also be awarded with a bit of coin and, in some cases, access to a new karma vendor.

PvE Events

Guild Wars 2 Events

As you explore the different areas of Tyria you will stumble upon events. These are fun, sometimes challenging, tasks that you (and/or others) can complete. They generally consist of killing more difficult enemies (such as veterans or champions), defending an area, capturing an area, collecting materials, or something else along those lines.

These events are a great way to rack up experience points for leveling. You’ll earn experience for killing enemies and for the completion of the event. On top of XP you’ll also receive some currency, a bit of karma, and loot from enemies you’ve killed. Stick around a little while after you’ve completed an event, though, because some turn into event chains consisting of 2-4 challenges back-t0-back.

WvW Participation

Guild Wars 2 WvW

If your server is doing well in WvW it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll find a large group playing it. Participate in the captures of camps, keeps, and other points to rack up insane amounts of experience quickly. Playing in WvW is one of the best ways to level up fast in Guild Wars 2. Your character will receive tons of XP for helping to defend your servers’ captured structures and for taking over enemy structures.

Crafting Items

Guild Wars 2 Crafting

While crafting in GW2 isn’t the most profitable venture, it does provide a ton of experience, especially for beginner players. One of the best professions to start with is Chef. It’s fairly affordable and easy to do. Leveling your crafting profession will, in turn, give your character experience toward your overall level. Generally speaking, you can expect to go up at least 10 levels by raising one craft profession to 400. Keep in mind that you can, by removing one or two at a time, max out every crafting profession to gain XP. In fact, the first Guild Wars 2 player to reach level 80 did so by crafting alone.

Daily & Monthly Achievements

GW2 Daily Achievements

Many players overlook the value of completing the daily and monthly achievements in GW2. Daily achievements require you to select 5 challenges to complete for the day which can include getting kills, crafting items, gathering materials, and a variety of other things. Monthly achievements generally require the player to participate in a number of events, dungeon runs, and other tasks. Both reward the player with a decent amount of experience toward their next level, coin, karma and other forms of currency such as Laurels.
