Introduction to Engineering in New World
The Engineering Trade Skill in New World allows players to craft muskets, blunderbuss, bows, bullets, arrows, mining picks, harvesting sickles, logging axes, skinning knives, fishing poles, and a few quality of life items.

To get started with Engineering you will need to gather resources to craft. Once the resources have been obtained you will be using the Workshop (Arrow/Musket icon on map) to craft anything Engineering. A tier 1 Camp Fire works for Flint Tools, but nothing else for Engineering. Walk up to the Workshop and press your default interact button, “E”, to open the crafting window.
It is important to note the tier of the Workshop you are using as it determines what tier items you can craft:
  • Camp Fire T1: Flint Tools
  • Workshop T2: 1-49 Recipes
  • Workshop T3: 50-99 Recipes
  •  Workshop T4: 100-149 Recipes
  • Workshop T5: 150+ Recipes

When you are at the crafting station and have the resources, you will want to open the crafting menu and select what you want to craft. Once you’ve selected the item to craft, you can click the blue CRAFT button to craft the item. If you wish to craft more than one you can move the slider above it and select how many you wish to bulk craft. 
Most of the time when you craft an item at the Workshop you are awarded with Engineering experience. The amount of experience for crafting an item can be found under the blue CRAFT button in the crafting screen. An exception are the Flint tools as seen above. Engineering level cap is 200.

When crafting an item Tier 2 or higher, the first item in the craft must match the same tier as the item you are crafting. For example the Starmetal Mining Pick (seen below) is a Tier 4 Mining Pick so it requires the Tier 4 Metal Ingot to craft it as the primary material (Starmetal Ingot, Blessed Crucible, or Azurite Chunk). The secondary materials are not restricted to the tier requirement making it so you may use lesser or greater tiered materials in the craft. (See our Crafting & Yield Chances guide to see how it affects Gear Score)

Leveling Engineering
Information in this section contains what I, Mala Zedik, feel is a way to level your Engineering Trade Skill. You are in no way restricted to this method. I expect you to diverge from it depending on material availability, refining proc chances, and market price values.

I do not take into consideration the proc chances for the refining process as it is not the only method of obtaining the materials to craft and the proc chance depends on level & resources used. Some players may want to spend gold to buy all/some of the materials from the trade stations.

If there is a need for tools then feel free to craft them over the suggestions I am about to talk about as they will yield more gold for you and as long as you only use the refining material for the primal material then you will be just as effective at leveling. My main objective with the leveling process is the fastest way to level up Engineering. 

Levels 1 - 50 (Tier 2 Crafting)
You will need a total of 11,995 experience to reach level 50. Tier 2 crafting for Engineering follows this formula for experience: 
Number of Materials * 12 Experience = Experience Output
Let's take Gunpowder for this example. This item requires 8 items to craft it; 5x Charcoal, 2x Flint, and 1x Saltpeter. When multiplied by the tier experience value of 12 it will provide us with a total of 96 experience to craft it. For leveling this tier, craft 125 Gunpowder for a total of 12,000 experience. 
Total required materials:
  • 625x Charcoal
  • 250x Flint
  • 125x Saltpeter
Raw materials:
  • 1,250x Green Wood -> Charcoal
Gunpowder’s base tax value is 0.04. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 5.00 coin/gold to just craft them. 
Here are my reasons for the Gunpowder; charcoal is easy to obtain from cutting down trees and smelting it. Flint is easy to find on the beach/shore line. Saltpeter is easy to obtain at the starting area of Windsward in the Torrentdawn Cave (Show above). Saves a lot of money as well since the Flint/Saltpeter are raw materials saving you on the refining costs and the Gunpowder is the cheapest item to craft for this tier. 

Levels 51 - 100 (Tier 3 Crafting)
You will need a total of 139,720 experience to reach level 100. Tier 3 crafting for Engineering follows this formula for experience: 
Number of Materials * 45 Experience = Experience Output
My suggestion for leveling this tier is to craft 173 Aged Wood Fishing Pole at 810 experience each for a total of 140,130 experience. It takes 13x Tier 3 Refined Wood, 3x Leathers, and 2x Cloths. 
Total required materials:
  • 2,249x Lumber
  • 519x Coarse Leather
  • 346x Linen
Raw materials:
  • 17,992x Green Wood
  • 8,996x Aged Wood
  • 2,249x Sandpaper
  • 2,076x Rawhide
  • 1,384x Fiber
Aged Wood Fishing Pole’s base tax value is 0.55. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 95.15 coin/gold to just craft them. 

If the plan is to Salvage what is crafted, the Aged Wood Fishing Pole salvages at a [1-4] Lumber per Salvage. The average number of Primary Resources returned from 192 crafted poles will be 433. Remember these are an estimate and RNG can skew these numbers in your favor or against you.

TIP: Don’t craft ammo for experience unless you want some to use. Overall it will require you to gather more raw resources due to the amount of refined resources it takes to craft ammo. This is more-so true at the higher tiers as you will always need the refined materials of the equal tier to craft the ammo. 

Here are my reasons for the Aged Wood Fishing Pole; Lumber is easy to obtain from cutting down trees and refining it, the catch is the sandpaper which needs to be looted from containers; however you will need a refining material no matter which path you take. The alternative would be to use Steel Ingots and flux, but the value of these are higher. The leathers are used in other crafts so they will have to be gathered one way or another. The fiber for linen would be the hardest thing to obtain; but isn’t hard to gather if you look for the bright pink flowers.

Level 100 - 150 (Tier 4 Crafting)
You will need a total of 986,150 experience to reach level 150. Tier 4 crafting for Engineering follows this formula for experience:
Number of Materials * 168 Experience = Experience Output
This is going to be very similar to the Tier 3 crafting as we will want to craft 309 Wyrdwood Fishing Pole for 3,192 experience each for a total of 986,328 experience. It takes 14x Tier 4 Refined Wood, 3x Leather, and 2x Cloth per craft.
Total required materials:
  • 4,326x Wyrdwood Planks
  • 927x Coarse Leather
  • 618x Linen
Raw Materials:
  • 69,216x Green Wood
  • 34,608x Aged Wood
  • 25,956x Wyrdwood 
  • 12,978x Sandpaper
  • 3,708x Rawhide
  • 2,472x Fiber
Wyrdwood Fishing Pole’s base tax value is 1.34. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 414.06 crowns/gold to just craft them.

If the plan is to Salvage what is crafted, the Wyrdwood Wood Fishing Pole salvages at a [1-4] Wyrdwood Plank per Salvage. The average number of Primary Resources returned from 339 crafted poles will be 772. Remember these are an estimate and RNG can skew these numbers in your favor or against you.

REMINDER: Don’t craft ammo for experience unless you want some to use.

My reasons for the Wyrdwood Fishing Pole are similar to the Aged Wood Fishing Pole. Take a look at my suggested gathering path for Wyrdwood. In this area of Bright wood you have a lot of Elemental Wolves that can be logged for Wyrdwood and a lot of Wyrdwood trees that you may chop down as well! The green line is the return path I like to take, but isn’t the best route. At that point however, I am mostly looking for wolves to kill and harvest as the nodes haven’t respawned yet. 
Level 150 - 200 (Tier 5 Crafting)
You will need a total of 5,046,122 experience to reach level 200. Tier 5 crafting for Engineering follows this formula for experience:
Number of Materials * 504 Experience = Experience Output
This is going to be very similar to the Tier 3/4 crafting as we will want to craft 501 Ironwood Fishing Pole at 10,080 experience each for a total of 5,050,080 experience. It takes 15x Tier 5 Refined Wood, 3x Leather, and 2x Cloth per craft.
Total required materials:
  • 7,515x Ironwood Planks
  • 1,503x Coarse Leather
  • 1,002x Linen
Raw Materials:
  • 240,480x Green Wood
  • 120,240x Aged Wood
  • 90,180x Wyrdwood
  • 60,120x Ironwood
  • 52,605x Sandpaper
  • 6,012x Rawhide
  • 4,008x Fiber
Ironwood Fishing Pole’s base tax value is 3.28. Without any tax modifiers you will need to spend 1,643.28 coin/gold to just craft them. 

If the plan is to Salvage what is crafted, the Ironwood Wood Fishing Pole salvages at a 1-4 Ironwood Plank per Salvage. The average number of Ironwood Planks returned from 501 crafted poles will be 1,253.  Remember these are an estimate and RNG can skew these numbers in your favor or against you.

REMINDER: Don’t craft ammo for experience unless you want some to use.

My reasons for the Ironwood Fishing Pole are similar to the other Fishing Poles. Take a look at my suggested gathering path for Ironwood. Valor Hold is a rather straightforward pathing that takes you back where you can store your items for later. Reekwater has a decent location as well if you are willing to spend the Azoth to teleport to the Shrine.

Enhancing Your Engineering
Buffs and perks are the 2 main ways to enhance your Engineering. Both have ways to stack them, but with all good things there are limitations.

Perks are limited to item type and only being able to have 1 type of perk on the item. For example, an amulet can’t have Engineer Expertise  because it is an Armor Perk. There are always exceptions to rule; sometimes a quest item will give a named item that comes with a double perk, however none currently exist for Engineering that we know of at this time. 

There exists an Engineering armor set that is ideal for players who want to increase the gear score value on their crafts. The differences between Tier IV and Tier V for the set is purely cosmetic. You are able to mix and match them as you need to gain the buffs you want.
