Guild Wars 2 diary: Feeling Crafty

If you missed the first two Guild Wars 2 diaries, you can read them here.

After exploring the Caledon Forest and the Grove and helping out with random odds and ends, it was time for my personal story to continue. There was lot of chatter about this dark faction of the Sylvari called the Nightmare Court. It was time to deal with these rogues. But first, I had to deal with the matter of my full inventory.

Unfortunately, I had no idea how to craft and the game wasn't doing a good job of explaining it to me. After exploring Caledon Forest a little more, I found an area filled with artisan crafters who offered to teach me trades--up to two at a time.

If you missed the first Guild Wars 2 diary, you can read it here.

So I gave my XP meter a boost by exploring areas and finding unexplored points of interest.
