Crafting Stuck at 49. Help!

So, I did not follow a guide but was just crafting stuff as a Huntsman. Now there are no more recipes that will improve my skills and I'm absolutely stuck at 49 without the ability to get over the hump to 50. I can't find a way to discovery something in this range either. Any help you can provide would be really appreciated.

    Use gw2crafts.net (no registration or API key necessary, just pick which crafting skill you want to level) and simply look at what the site recommends for 25-50 and 50-75. Buy the necessary materials, then either use the site for 75-400 (500) or continue on your own.

    Anet made every crafting skill easily cleared from 0-500 via crafting backpacks. You should be able to start at 0, no?

    Discover more different stat combinations.
    Discovery is the primary way to level your crafting, as it gives a big chunk of bonus CraftXP

    You have Inscriptions for 6 stats and 7 different weapons crafted by Huntsman - that's 42 different recipes you can discover.

    Keep an eye out for the structure of how each tier is built:
    Upon unlocking a tier (happens at 0, 75, 150, 225, 300 & 400. Technically also at 500, but irrelevant for leveling) you get a set of inscriptions and can thus discover a couple of stats on each weapon.

    Every 25 levels within a tier (such as 25&50, 100&125, etc) you get a few more inscriptions and can thus discover a few more stats per weapon - before 300 this also corresponds to a higher minimum character level to use the weapon.

    At 0 Huntsman you could craft "Malign", "Mighty" and "Vital" weapons. At 25, "Healing", "Precise" and "Resilient" unlocked.

    As already mentioned, you need to discover most recipes. I know, this system is a real hassle, quite unintuitive and totally unfun until you master a craft. Therefore, I recommend this guide to save yourself time, nerves and (most importantly) resources: https://gw2crafts.net/

    Just scroll down to your current craftsman level and continue from there.

  • And don't to use the guildhall crafting booster. It's a 10% or 20% experience boost on your crafting skills. When I was leveling, normally I'd get the first 20 to 25 levels of each tier just from refining a couple of stacks of that tier's materiels with the GH boost active. That booster is literally money in your pocket.

  • I would suggest using this wiki to look up Huntsman crafting recipes.
    Compare listed level 40 thru 50 possible recipes against the ones you already know.
    Then use the discover feature to make the ones you are missing.

    You could also buy Rare Inscription recipes from the Master Huntsman.
    Then craft and use them to make Rare items.
    You can sell these Rare items on the TP to get some gold back.
