All crafting professions in Guild Wars 2 are going to rise from 400 to 500 this year, according to game director Colin Johanson. It means you'll be able to make your own ascended gear.
You'll need high-tier materials made by combining low-tier materials in order to do so, mind you, and you'll only be able to make items once per day. But still: nifty.
Champion-level opponents will soon be guaranteed to drop reward boxes containing things like crafting materials as well as skill points, skins and lodestones. You'll also be able to earn new account-bound crafting materials for achieving objectives in PVE or WVW play.
