Weapons and Armor Gem Perks Guide

Once you complete the tutorial to New World, you’ll eventually make your way to the nearest friendly settlement. As part of the main quest chain within the settlement, you’ll encounter the New World’s three factions: The Covenant, Marauders, and Syndicate.

The Covenant is the religious inquisition, with its followers dedicated to the Spark. It is basically a faction full of Catholics since the game is based on the European Age of Exploration. You can tell them apart from the other factions due to more zealous attire, church-related buildings, and their distinctive orange color scheme.

If you’re more into strength conquest and martial attitudes, then the Marauders are your faction. These muscular maniacs believe that Aeternum is a land worth fighting for, and only those strong enough will claim it. You can distinguish them from the other factions through their green color scheme and strong visual connection to the Spanish Conquistadors.

Lastly, we have the Syndicate, a band of mystics and scholars. The Syndicate is dedicated to pursuing truth and knowledge, dressed up in plague doctor or monkish attire. Their preferred colour scheme is purple.

Choose Your Profession

Crafting items requires materials that are gathered in the open-world through the five gathering professions: Logging, Mining, Fishing, Harvesting, and Skinning. After a player has gathered materials in the open-world, many of the materials must then be refined at one of the corresponding refining stations in order to be used in crafting. Refining stations include: the Smelter, Woodshop, Tannery, Loom, and the Stonecutting Table. At these refining stations, players will turn raw materials like green wood into intermediate and refined goods like timber, which will then enter crafting stations in order to be turned into a finished good like a Treated Wood Bow or Iron Logging Axe.

Consumables Guide

A great player in New World is not only skilled in battle, but is also efficiently prepared. Alongside a weapon, the player will find it beneficial to be stocked on consumables, prepared for any altercation. These consumables may be potions that restore health, mana, or both. As well as coatings for the player’s weapon to increase damage dealt versus certain monster types. There are potions that increase damage absorption versus elemental affixes or increase damage absorption versus certain monster types. There is also food that when consumed, grants a buff that increases specific stats for an amount of time or others that gives the player a buff that increases health or mana recovery rates. No matter the situation, there is a consumable that can help.

These are the consumables of New World.

Personal Storage System Guide

Storage in New World is the system players use to store their items. All storage sheds are personal and can only be accessed by the player. Storage sheds can be found in every settlement in Aeternum and are indicated by a chest icon on the map. Storage sheds are not accessible anywhere in the world – rather, they can only be accessed at the actual shed while in the specific settlement the storage shed is located.

GreataxePvP Builds

Greataxe PvP Guide

The Greataxe in New World performs very well in PvP due to its high functioning abilities like Charge, Gravity Well, Reap, and Execute. Although it doesn’t have much of a crowd control tool kit, the greataxe makes up for what it lacks with high damage potential and survivability mechanics such as the Hunger passive under Reap. Choose the greataxe if you want a hard hitting and visceral melee PvP experience.

Life StaffPvP Builds

Life Staff PvP Guide

In PvP, health is one of the most important resources that a player has because it dictates whether a player is alive (functioning) or dead (not functioning). In New World, the life staff is the only weapon that has the capability to directly heal player characters, making it uniquely powerful and positioned well in PvP.

BuildsMusketMusket PvP BuildPvP Builds

Musket PvP Guide

New World MMO’s musket is a weapon that, when used correctly in certain scenarios, can be very deadly.

Leveling BuildsSword & Shield

Sword Leveling Guide

The sword and shield in New World brings a brutal combination of defensive/crowd control abilities to the PvP landscape. With abilities like Shield Rush and Shield Bash, the sword and shield can set up some of the nastiest ability combos in the game, or create a lot of space between them and their opponents.

Leveling BuildsWarhammer

Warhammer Leveling Guide

The warhammer is a top tier leveling weapon due to its hefty strong attacks, large crowd control toolkit, and health regeneration mediated by the passive Prevailing Spirit (5). Although players may find the warhammer basic attacks and abilities to have slower animations than other weapons, they will quickly learn to time their abilities correctly and weave abilities and attacks together to make the warhammer a formidable weapon.

Leveling BuildsRapier

Rapier Leveling Guide

The rapier in New World is an agile 1-handed weapon that uses quick strikes to deal massive amounts of damage. With one of the highest melee damage ceilings in the game, while also packing some decent utility, the rapier will be used in combination with many different weapons and see success. Many players will find that the rapier excels in smaller scale PvP rather than large scale combat like territory wars due to its heavy single target nature.
