New World Factions Seals are items that you can buy from your faction vendor to change the stats on your faction Armor. In this guide, we’ll cover where to find Faction Seals and how to use them to change the attributes on your armor.
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.
When buying rewards you can select one of the armor types; Light, Medium, or Heavy to pick from. Each armor type is set up 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 correspond 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
How to Use Faction Seals
Once you have selected the type of armor that 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 an 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 light gloves that come with Focus and Intelligence by default. If I wanted to change these gloves to strength and constitution I would use the barbarian 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.
