Wait are you serious? Your level 80 and you can't get past 38 crafting...Did you not mine/gather resources as you explored? By the time I was 80 on my engineer I was at 400/400 huntsman and my level 70 Thief is now 374/400 crafting (but crafted to that level around level 50s). By now you should have a reasonable amount of currency to buy off the TP if you don't have the resources. Its relatively cheap to do so. 1-2 gold is all you need to craft really high amounts.

I'm guessing that what you're trying to do is grind out levels by creating the same thing repeatedly.

It doesn't work that way.

Discovery is, by far and away, the biggest source of xp you'll get.  You need to make different recipes every time, or as much as you can.  Find out what's cheap to make (For example, an ax as a weaponsmith, since it uses wood, which you'll have an excess of, or a mace.... or a helmet/shoulders for armor crafting), then make multiples of that, but of each type of insignia.

So one with the insignia you get from poison sacs, one with the kind you get from claws, one with the kind from blood, and so on.

Also, when you hit 75, you'll have access to the next tier of material, iron/soft wood.

Rather than making more stuff, make as many iron bars or soft wood planks as you can (If you're doing metal armorsmithing, you might want to make the wood planks here, and level up your armorsmithing with the iron), until it doesn't give xp any more.

That should boost you up to about 100 from that alone.  Then back to discovery until you hit 150 and the next tier of material. :)

Yes,

 

You are crafting the wrong way.  You earn limited xp from crafting items you have the recipe for.  You earn tons of xp by Discovery. 

All your materials while leveling should be used in discovery.

This is one of the easiest and fastest crafting systems i've ever seen to level.

really, yea you have to be doing the wrong thing, discovery is you best friend when it comes to leveling crafting, dont craft things that are grey or white, unless you need them to make something thats still orange.

i was 400 on 2 different crafts before i even hit 80

It only takes a swipe of the VISA to get all craftings maxed and your level with it. Also you can buy gear straight from the auction aswell.

So why bother?

A friend of mine showed me this website last night. I haven't exactly followed it myself since I haven't been crafting recently but it seems fairly useful if used correctly. Still a WiP but looks like its meant to efficiently craft. Same time they look like methods I already did beforehand just experimenting inscriptions on a few weapons each. Not sure if it will be helpful but I will at least throw it out there as guidance.

some people enjoy crafting,  its really easy to level and keep gold gear at your level through your whole run to 80.  because you dont even come close to needing gems to max crafting. because i have gotten over 2k gems with in game money.

Case in point, my elementalist is level 13 and has never been outside DR since I took her there at level 2...all strictly from crafting; with a mid-200s cooking level and an upper 100s in jewelry.  Discoveries are definitely the key.

Crafting in MMO's is dumb I hardly ever touch crafting because all the better stuff comes from npc vendor's, until a game come's along that offer's better gear from players crafting it crafting just isn't worth the time.

Evil will always triumph because good is dumb....

Thanks for the insight, however GW2 doesn't work that way.

Um.  You can craft Exotic level gear in GW2 and superior runes. So yes.  As a crafter I can craft gear to as good as the dungeon gear.

For example, crafted shoulders:

Level 80 Dungeon:

But it will be just as hard as running dungeons.

Quoted for visibility, responce to the OP:

This guide is pretty straight forward.  If you are looking to power your crafting forward it's the best bet.  It's going to seem like a shameless plug, but I really think it can be helpful to understand the process:  the video in the post just by this one "Introduction to Crafting and Basic Tips" [VIDEO HERE] covered this issue as well.  Discoveries are what's going to move you forward, no just blindly crafting items.  Each discovery for me at lowe levels was at LEAST 1 level and some times 2 and a half.

I have run into needing some materials but it's mostly needing the things like claws and totems.  Of  course I'm trying to level 2 professions at once which can drain my resources and I haven't farmed the right monsters yet.  So, I can say there are slow moments but they shouldn't be anywhere as bad as you've run across.  Hopefully all the responces here have helped you and you find it easier from this point on.  Good luck
