New World Shield Perks and Perk Labels

All of the perks in New World are categorized using perk labels. In this guide we have an easy-to-use chart of all the New World Shield Perks and Perk Labels.

Most perks have 1 perk label, but a few have 2 perk labels. When crafting an item in New World you can not roll multiple perks within the same perk label. For example, if you roll Refreshing in the “CDR” perk label you can not also have the Refreshing Ward perk within the “CDR” perk label on the same shield. 

You could however roll an item that has something within the “Proc” perk label and within the “CDR” perk label. For example, you could roll Refreshing and Keenly Fortified on the same piece of armor. This rule applies to the 2nd perk label as well. 

Below is a chart of all the shield perks and their associated perk labels within New World (You can use “CTL + F” to search for applicable perks and perk labels)
