Hmm, I get items about level 25 in the 1-15 zones. And I'm level 30.
Think it's a chance? Because I DEFINITELY get low level items fairly often, I highly doubt anything in my bag has survived my rabid salvaging for 40+ levels.
Jute is an absolute pain. I rarely get low level armour pieces, but I find things like spears, swords, daggers, etc. all the time.
I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.
If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.
I have 100% completion on both sylvari and asura starting areas, I've salvaged every item I found, I've never crafted anything more than once (except core components) while researching everything. But I'm still only level 40 in tailoring. I hope they don't expect me to 100% all starting areas just to get enough mats to reach the next tier.
Use a buff like Bowls of Applesauce to increase Magic Find for grinding Centaurs or other mobs that drop bags.
Buy low tier gloves from vendor in Township of Claypool in Queensdale, use Crude Salvage Kits on them to get jute or leather.
Did you think we had forgotten? Did you think we had forgiven?
Can anyone explain discoveries for me? I put stuff in and it says I need to add more items to discover recipes which either need more crafting level or even more items. I'm doing Jewel Crafting and Artifice at the moment and have only discovered one recipe for Artifice through glittering powder.
I'm level 15 and my armormithing skill is 76. But that's only because I wasted so much time on it. :P Finding a mining ode is quite satisfying, especially when it's a rich one.

Level 34 here. Chef skill on 128.
Finding Onions and garlic was a pain in the butt after I reached 75 I found a nice spot to farm for strawberries which pushed me up to 128. Having no problems so far. Some higher ingredients are eating away my copper and karma tho :S
awesome database if you are trying to find disconveries for new recipes or armor. Just type in one ingredient and it will show every recipe you may need that for.

So craft your components (usually 2) and then add your stat item and you should make a discovery.
I'm 37 and have weaponsmith at 155 and armorsmith at 150. just farm. i farmed for hours and hours yesterday, 9 to be precise
I did every single starting zone and every single 15-25 zone. I currently have a giant pile of wood (over 1000 green wood), copper (almost 1000), and iron (550ish), as well as a ton of jewels (20+ of each). I have a ton of cooking components, lots of left over jute and leather, and a ton of those tiny claw, weak blood, etc items. I'm also level 42 and haven't set foot in the 25+ zones.
If you wanna do professions, you need to do lower level zones. Lower level DOES NOT mean that you will level slower, as they give the same exp as higher level zones and exp needed to level is linear after 15.

EDIT: I should probably add that I do go out of my way to gather stuff and participate in events that are practically just massive aoe loot piñatas.

That said, I have no problem leveling both jeweler and weaponsmith. But my initial plan was weaponsmith and armorsmith, sadly without the TP its too much of a pain to farm fine materials required. Basic materials like ores are okay, if I need some I can spend some time farming. But gathering 8 thin blood can take a bit too much time in my opinion.
And I think crafting gives too much experience but that is another subject.

Works every time
Also now I'm level 60 and I have jewelcrafting at level 263 (?) If you have a guild just talk to some1 to trade materials with you so you don't have to farm that much. Also offer people for helping some of the crafts since they're better than many of dropped/bought ones.

If money is not a problem go to any starter area armor vendor and buy the white cloth items from them and then salvage and voila you'll get the scraps, if you need a higher level scraps go to the next area and try the same thing.
Because ten billion
years' time is so fragile
it arouses such a
almost heartbreaking fondness.
I guess this link will be quite useful, on this thread:
Please remember to be sure of what you're planning to boost till 400, if you want a legendary weapon. You risk to craft a weapon you will never wear because of your profession. Don't make a hammer with your necro
