In this article we are going to focus on how you salvage and repair your gear in New World.
In order to repair your gear you must have the appropriate amount of repair parts and a little coin to pay.
Repair parts are a unique resource that’s used to repair items, and cannot be traded, sold, or purchased. In order to obtain repair parts you must salvage weapons and armor that you no longer need.
During your adventures in Aeternum you will come across both weapons and armor that are not very useful to you. Either they are much lower tier than you would want to use, or simply not an item you’re interested in equipping.
When this happens you can salvage that gear by hovering over the item you want to salvage and pressing S and left click. This will then salvage that item and you will obtain repair parts, as well as, a small amount of returned crafting materials. The amount of repair parts and the type of material you receive will depend on the item that you salvage.
A great way to obtain a ton of repair parts easily is to craft a mass amount of items. This will increase your crafting skill and then you can salvage the items you just crafted and get back a small portion of your materials and obtain quite a few repair parts.
It’s important to note that repair parts are capped at 2,000, so you can’t just horde up hundreds of thousands of repair parts and be set for life.
Once you have obtained a sufficient amount of repair parts to repair your damaged gear you will then hover over the gear you want to repair and simply press R plus your left mouse button in order to fully repair your gear.
You can see how much an item is damaged by looking at the quick view durability bar below the icon of the item in your equipment screen, and also by hovering over the item you can see the actual total durability number for that item, as well as, the remaining durability that the item has.
You can also see how many repair parts and how much coin it will cost you in order to repair that item.
You can repair an item as many times as you want. There is no durability loss when you repair an item, and the item will NOT eventually be destroyed if you repair too much.
