New World Crafting Guide
If you are searching for a New World crafting guide, then look no further. Amazon’s new MMO highlights a fairly in-depth system for botching with resources. There are a lot of different workstations, but also so-called trade abilities that you can level, helping you to make better items and work your way up to becoming a master crafts person in the game.
You’ll also need more reliable workstations and tools if you want to gather the required resources, and most of all, you’ll need to know where to find them. While this isn’t a detailed New World crafting guide, it will give you an idea of what to concentrate on, and it depends on what you’re looking to craft, along with some details about how to find resources, along with what trade abilities you can get.
New World crafting: How to get started
You can begin crafting as soon as you complete the tutorial, and will find a crafting station close by the first quest giver your meet. You’ll use different workstations to craft with, and these are offered during the main story. As you’d expect, leveling up the different trade skills will unlock better items to make and potentially increase your yield, but you’ll also need sufficient crafting stations too.
Crafting stations are updated as players complete quests via the Town Projects board, but only if the guild that oversees the settlement has it as an objective. You can see what’s been set by looking at the goals on the project board.
Collecting trade skills
You can collect basic materials from the start, such as flint and greenwood, but you’ll require special tools to gather more useful materials. You get your first flint axe and mining pick from quests when you get to the first settlement, then you’re sent on a quest to gather different resources.
You can check out where to get most resources via the Resource Locations section in the left-hand column when you open the world map. This resource map will be especially useful once you start doing the more advanced crafting.
The gathering skills are:
- Tracking and Skinning: Meat and animal hide.
- Logging: Young tree, aged wood, etc.
- Mining: Stone, Iron, saltpeter, oil, and other precious metals and gems.
- Harvesting: Herbs, hemp, and other plant life.
- Fishing: Fish.
Refining trade skills
The refining trade skills let you manage the raw materials you’ve collected, so you can smelt iron ore into iron ingots, for example.
The refining trade skills are:
- Leatherworking: Leather and tannin.
- Woodworking: Timber, lumber, planks, sandpaper.
- Stonecutting: Stone blocks and bricks, cut gems.
- Smelting: Ingots and flux.
- Weaving: Linen, sateen, silk.
Crafting trade skills
There are a lot of crafting trade skills. It’s helpful to know what you can create with each, so you can focus on leveling the ones you need first. It’s also worth noting that each of these trade skills can make Repair Kits.
- Weaponsmithing: Melee weapons (not spears) and shields.
- Armoring: Armor (all weights).
- Engineering: Spears, ranged weapons, arrows, bullets, gathering tools.
- Jewelcrafting: Jewelry and gems.
- Arcana: Staffs, gauntlets, potions, and tinctures.
- Cooking: Rations, meals, fishing bait.
