Introduction to Logging in New World
Logging is a gathering Trade Skill in New World that allows players to gather raw wood resources from Logging nodes that will be used in crafting Trade Skills; Weaponsmithing, Engineering, and Furnishing. It will also be used in the Smelting and Woodworking refining Trade Skills.

When first starting out you will need a Flint Logging Axe to start gathering nodes. This requires Engineering level 0 along with 1 Flint and 1 Green Wood to craft it. You are able to pick up both the Flint and Green Wood without the need of a gathering tool by walking up to the respective bush/flint and pressing your interact key. (Default “E) Once all obtained a Tier 1 Camp Fire or Workshop is required to craft the Flint Logging Axe. Once crafted you will need to equip it and you can start gathering!


Higher character levels are able to use better tiers of Logging Axes:
It is advised to use the highest tier possible followed by the best gear score possible to best increase your gathering speed. 

Different Types of Logging Nodes
Here is a list of all the Logging nodes based on required level to gather, and what they have to offer for gathering them.  
  • Young Trees(0): Green Wood, Softwood Tree Sap, Drop of Sap, Vial of Sap, Draught of Sap, Resin Shavings, Resin Lump, Resin Chunk, Petrified Wood, Whisperwood, Resin, Sap
  • Mature Trees(50): Aged Wood, Softwood Tree Sap, Drop of Sap, Vial of Sap, Draught of Sap, Resin Shavings, Resin Lump, Resin Chunk, Petrified Wood, Whisperwood, Resin, Sap
  • Wyrdwood(100): Wyrdwood, Softwood Tree Sap, Drop of Wyrdwood Sap, Sliver of Wyrdwood Resin, Whisperwood, Quillbark, Ebonwood 
  • Ironwood(175): Ironwood, Softwood Tree Sap, Draught of Ironwood Sap, Shard of Ironwood Resin, Sliver of Ironwood Resin, Drop of Ironwood Sap, Wildwood, Barbvine

++ With the addition of Patch 1.4, Heart of Madness, it is now possible to earn a Hidden Stash while logging any node. Opening a Stash will award you with Earth, Air, Water, and Life motes, gold, and other goodies like a Diamond Gypsum

TIP: Logging Luck helps determines what you obtain while Logging. Don’t feel discouraged when first starting out and you are not able to find rare items as your luck increases as you level up. 

How to level Logging
The information contained in this section will assist you in leveling your Logging Trade Skill. Leveling Logging is a straightforward process; chop what you see and just keep going!

Level 1 to 200:
In order to reach level 200 you will need a total of 976,006 experience. The best way to level up Logging is to chop Young Trees since they generate a base average of *6XP a second. Try to focus on chopping down the smaller, quicker to cut trees if possible. 

At level 50 Logging you should still just chop everything in sight as the Mature Trees generate a base average of *4.8XP a second due to their increased chop time. 
 
At  level 100 be sure to stop and grab the Wyrdwood Trees as they are not as abundant as either Young or Mature trees. Wyrdwood Trees generate a base average of *7.8XP a second. 

At level 175 you can start chopping Ironwood trees to mix in with the Young, Mature and Wyrmwood trees. These generate a base average of *30.7XP a second.

*All experience per second calculations are based on an unmodified gathering speed value. You will obviously have a better experience per second rate if you have better gathering speeds, but they were kept equal to see the values to determine what would be the best way to level! 

TIP: Use the interactive map to plot out your path! 

There is an experience perk that you will want to seek out on your Axe called Lumberjack’s Discipline. This perk increases your Logging experience [3-9.4]% based on the gear score value of the Axe. The perk is limited to only Axes. Having this perk is a must if you are trying to power level Logging. At level 200 its great to have for pushing Aptitude Levels.

Constitution at 300 points is ideal while leveling. Having 200 points will give you 20% Logging speed and a 10% weight reduction to harvested items. The 250 point bonus (10% Yield) doesn’t help leveling at all, while the 300 point bonus can be helpful if you proc the 25% chance.

TRAPS: There are things in the game that may seem like they will help you level, but will not. Territory XP Gain bonus is one of these things. This buff does not apply to trade skills. Luck doesn’t affect your experience rates. Finding uncommon, rare, or legendary items while gathering doesn’t change the amount of experience you earn. Yield is the same as luck. Earning more of an item doesn’t increase the amount of experience you earn.
Enhancing your Logging
Buffs and perks are the 2 main ways to enhance your Logging. Both have ways to stack them, but with all good things there are limitations.

Perks are limited to item type and only being able to have 1 type of perk on the item. For example an amulet can’t have Reinforced Logging Luck because that is an Armor Perk, but it can have 1 instance of Adored Logging Luck since it is an Amulet Perk. There are always exceptions to rule; sometimes a quest item will give a named item that comes with a double perk, however none currently exist for Logging that we know of. 

Buffs can stack if they come from different sources. For example I can stack yield increase buff from a Proficiency potion and territory control. If you attempt to stack buffs from the same source it will just refresh your buff timer. 

There is a Lumberjack armor set that is ideal for players to use while Logging as it should always come with Constitution and Reinforced Logging Luck. This set is not required for logging, but greatly assists due to the stats rolled on the gear are always guaranteed to be what you need for Logging. 

Each Perk has a related Crafting Mod that can be used in crafting to guarantee the perk in crafting and has been listed within Perk in the chance that you may want some armor crafted with the given perk.

** Azoth chance can be changed out for a 25% increased gathering speed or 9.4% experience gain depending on what you are farming. 
*** Axe reduction only works on Axes in your inventory since equipped items don’t count towards your encumbrance weight.

Logging Luck and You
The first thing I must explain is that 100 luck points equals 1% luck. The same can be said the other way; 1% Logging luck is equal to 100 luck points. This is based on what Amazon has stated on the forums

With the conversion in mind, the BiS Logging Luck turns out to be 83.05% while flagged and 53.05% while not flagged.

The reason Luck is important for Logging is because it will increase the odds of you obtaining a rare Logging item and an increase to items gathered. There are some thresholds that must be reached in order to obtain the rare items. These thresholds can be obtained by just leveling Logging, but can be reached sooner with the help of the resources talked about not too long ago. 

Thresholds:
  • +1,000 Points / 10.00% Ability to harvest Tier 2 & 3 rare wood materials.
  • +1,450 Points / 14.50% Ability to harvest Tier 4 rare wood materials.
  • +1,800 Points / 18.00% Ability to harvest Tier 5 rare wood materials.

It is important to note that even though these are the thresholds to start seeing these items, it doesn’t mean your chances of seeing them are very high.
