The PvP reward track in New World is a system of progression for players who enjoy participating in Player versus Player activities. The rewards track encourages players to participate in all forms of PvP that New World has to offer, including, wars, outpost rush, arenas, faction missions, and open world PvP.
You will also earn an azoth salt bonus for every 10,000 character experience you earn while flagged in the open world. This applies even if you’re max level.
You can earn a PvP experience and PvP currency, called azoth aalt, from every PvP activity in the game. The experience you earn will increase your progress on the rewards track, and you can exchange your azoth salt for specific rewards.
When you hit certain PvP XP thresholds, set at 2000/5000/10000, a notification will inform you that you’ve unlocked checkpoints 1/2/3 respectively. At each checkpoint, three potential rewards will roll. You can choose one of the three rewards to purchase using your azoth salt.
The PvP reward track contains items including armor, trinkets, weapons, emotes, and perk items. All of the items you can purchase are bind on pickup. These items can not be earned anywhere else in the game.
There are also other rewards that include gypsum, umbral shards, potion packs, and currency bundles that you can purchase. Once you purchase a reward in each checkpoint or azoth salt is claimed you will rank up your reward track. When you rank up the checkpoints will be reset to begin the next rotation.
Generally, you will find the most valuable items on the third checkpoint. However, there are exceptions. Umbral shards can roll on any checkpoint, gypsum orbs can roll on checkpoints two and three, and currency bundles can roll on any checkpoint. You will find the biggest yields of currency and items on checkpoint three.
Each checkpoint also has dedicated types of equipment.
There is a system where, when a weapon is rolled, there is roughly a 50% chance it will be a type that you actively have equipped (in either slot including shields). At Tier 5, rolls will respect your expertise level and can roll up to 600 Gear Score.
The gear from the PvP reward track will roll its perks from custom perk buckets. These buckets have been curated to give more of the desirable perks and stat bonuses. You can view all the PvP specific perks by check out our “Perks and Perk Labels” section. For example, the New World Weapon Perks and Perk Labels guide.
After 5 rotations, the Named fixed-stat variants of this equipment unlocks. This equipment has between two to five fixed perks depending on tier and have been crafted to be competitive.
Once you have completed your 20th rotation, the Prestige equipment will become available. These have a mixture of pre-defined and rolled perks. The rarer versions of these roll at 600 Gear Score regardless of your Expertise level. You need to be level 60 to qualify.
Increasing your rank will unlock additional rewards to choose from. You can also earn in-game achievements and titles by hitting pre-defined PvP rank milestones.
These milestones go from Steel (1 rotation), Bronze (5 rotations), Silver (20 rotations), Gold (50 rotations), Platinum (100 rotations), and Starmetal (200 rotations).
If you reach the last rank you will still be able to earn rewards by cycling through the rotations.
Your rewards from the PvP reward track will be based on where you are with your level progression. The equipment you roll will have gear scores that should be in your level range and useful to you.
The same rule applies to potions. You will receive potions that are at the appropriate tier for you to use. The currency packs will increase based on your level and rank.
The equipment tier rewards by player level are as follows:
