Gear Presets Please Devs Hear Us <3


Hey! Thanks so much for the feedback! I know the team has heard a lot of feedback and asks for a better gear management system and are currently looking into ways to make this easier for our players.

I’ve been working out of the thread here (linking to my original response on this thread): Devs Please Optimize Armor Organization For Players - #9 by Luxendra but I’ll forward this over to them as well!

[Downtime] PTR Update #4


Greetings Adventurers,

We want to get one last stability test in in preparation for our January Monthly Release.

We will be holding a 2 hour downtime 2022-01-22T20:00:00Z to update the game.

Thank you for your patience!

Dev Mutation 4 Dynasty Run


We like being a little weird sometimes. On my personal character I don’t run ice in Corrupted areas.

Incoming downtime message still showing


It should be gone now, sorry about that!

Incoming downtime message still showing


Thanks, I’ll pass it onto the team.

Dev Mutation 4 Dynasty Run


Yeah, they are - I slotted a diamond, so I was doing some good damage with ice. Fire was not the best, which is why I switched to musket.

Was just minding my own business, bopping them with some icey range - ranger danger I guess. :smiling_face_with_tear:

How to properly report bots in the forums?


Hey there!

Unfortunately, no one on the forums here has the ability to handle in-game moderation actions. You can report any bots you encounter in-game or through the Report a Player/Company website for the Game Moderation team.

By reporting a player/bot/company in-game, you provide the team with additional information like player name, region, server, time (specify the time zone please), which is invaluable to our teams. This lets the team investigate not only the individual, but also the telemetry the individual was causing on the server as well.

There is an off-game way to report bots and include links to videos and screenshots that you believe will help the team’s investigation in the link provided above.

Thank you for helping keep New World safe! We appreciate your help :slight_smile:

[Focus Feedback & Bug Reporting] Outpost Rush Balance Changes


Thanks for the continued feedback everyone!

Would an Armory located in each starting Fort provide the same relief that you’re looking for?

End Game

General Enhancements:

  • Players can upgrade individual gear pieces from GS 590 to GS 625, by spending Umbral Shards. Note we reduced this requirement from GS 600 to GS 590 based on PTR feedback and the desire to require Legendary items to engage in the Umbral System.
  • To allow players more access to use Gypsum more freely as they acquire it we’ve removed the crafting cooldowns on Gypsum Orbs.

Expedition Tuning Orbs:

  • Expedition Tuning Orbs for Amrine Excavation, Starstone Barrows, The Depths, and Dynasty Shipyard can be purchased from the Faction Shop once a day. Expedition Tuning Orbs for Garden of Genesis and Lazarus Instrumentality can be purchased once a week.

To increase access to crafting Expedition Tuning Orbs we made the following materials able to be tradable which were previously bound to players:

  • Blight Seeds
  • Corrupted Lodestones, Crystals, Fragments, Shards, and Slivers
  • Chisels

We’ve made significant reductions to crafting costs for Expedition Keys.

  • Fixed issue where Rothoard Alligators were dropping an excessive amount of rawhide.


  • Fixed issue that prevented the use of Onyx when crafting earrings using Timeless Shard.
