In New World you can build a camp while traversing the wilderness. A camp is incredibly useful as it serves as a re-spawn point if you die, you can rest at a camp to regain HP quickly, and you can craft basic items at your camp.
So, how does one go about obtaining the ability to create a camp? Well, you must first complete a series of quests in order to unlock the ability to craft a camp.
Once you wash up on the shores of Aeternum you’ll be guided through a series of beginner quests on the beach. You will need to complete those quests. If you do not complete those quests you will not be able to access the quests in town. So, do not skip these
Once you complete the first few quests you will then be directed to the closest town. You will need to continue to progress through the quest line and you’ll eventually be directed to the survivalist. Once you’re directed to the survivalist in your applicable starter town you’ll be able to complete the quest that will grant you the ability to craft your camp in the wild.
If you want to see the series of quests you’ll need to complete based on which starter area you spawn into check out the quest database here.
Once you gain the ability to craft your camp you will then craft it by finding a good spot outside of town and pressing the default key “Y.” This will then give you a ghost camp that you can place.
Once placed you will then need 5 wood and 1 flint in order to actually craft the tent. Once you have the materials, you’ll need to approach your ghost camp and press the default key of “E” in order to actually build your camp.
Once your camp is constructed you can then rest at your camp by pressing the default key of “T” and you can craft
basic items including tools, potions, tinctures, food, and a basic sword.
Your camp will also level up as you progress in character level.
Level 15 – Camping Tier 2
Level 20 – Camping Tier 3
Level 35 – Camping Tier 4
Level 50 – Camping Tier 5
As you level your camp you will have the ability to craft
higher tier potions, tinctures, food, and weapon coatings.
You can craft basic Health Recovery, Mana Recover, and Defense Recovery foods all the way up to tier 5, corruption tinctures up to tier V (these can only be crafted at your camp), blight tinctures up to tier V, and arrows up to tier 2. You can also craft beast, ancient, wraith, corrupted, and angry earth weapon coatings up to tier V at your camp.
You can not
craft higher than tier 1 tools or a tier 1 sword at the camp regardless of the camps level.
