Faction Seals And How To Use Them

Guide last updated: April 25th, 2022 for Patch 1.5 - Bugs and Balance Update

Faction Seals in New World

One of the ways to get new gear in New World is to get it from your faction vendor. In any town look for your faction representative and talk to them. In that new window you will click the Buy Rewards button as shown below.
When buying rewards you can select one of the armor types; Light, Medium, or Heavy to pick from. Each armor type is setup with a default combination of stats:
  • Light Armor - Focus and Intelligence
  • Medium Armor - Dexterity and Constitution
  • Heavy Armor - Strength and Constitution

You can buy Seals from the faction merchant to change the stats of the armor sets to something suitable for your build. Each seal has its own stats to go with it that corresponds to the other named sets in the game. Each seal also follows the naming convention of "[Faction] [Type] Seal".
  • Barbarian - Strength and Constitution
  • Brigand - Dexterity and Constitution
  • Cleric - Focus and Constitution
  • Occultist - Intelligence and Constitution

All the Seals:
| Barbarian | Brigand   | Cleric    | Occultist |
| Syndicate | Syndicate | Syndicate | Syndicate | 
| Marauder  | Marauder  | Marauder  | Marauder  |
| Covenant  | Covenant  | Covenant  | Covenant  |

Once you have selected the type of armor is best for your build you would then grab the seal to match what you want. If you are lucky you won’t have to change it at all, but if you do it is as easy process to change it. All you need to do is take that piece of gear to the appropriate crafting station with the appropriate seal. (Heavy at Forge.  Medium & Light at Outfitting Station) It does cost you azoth to convert the gear into the new version. You only need to be level 0 in Armoring to craft these changes onto the gear.

WARNING: You can only convert your gear with a seal once. Applying the craft will finalize the gear and prevent you from changing it again. Additionally, you will lose any gems you have in the item when you craft the new version of it, so make sure to add gems after you have the version you want. 

Once at the appropriate station with your seal, you will see the option to craft appear just like an artifact craft. For this example I bought a Heavy chest piece that comes with Strength and Constitution by default. My build currently is a Healer so I’m looking for Focus and Constitution stats, so I grabbed the Cleric seal. Only the attributes will change, everything else will stay the same ( Armor, Weight, etc) as seen in the before (left) and after (right) images.

That's all there is to it! If you ever have any questions or comments, join our Discord and feel free to ask us.
