Introduction to Harvesting in New World

Harvesting is a gathering Trade Skill in New World that allows players to gather raw plant resources from Harvesting nodes that will be used in crafting Trade Skills; Armorsmithing, Engineering, Arcana, Cooking, and Furnishing. It will also be used in the Weaving and Stonecutting refining Trade Skills.

When first starting out you will need a Flint Harvesting Sickle to start gathering nodes. This requires Engineering level 0 along with 1 Flint and 1 Green Wood to craft it. You are able to pick up both the Flint and Green Wood without the need of a gathering tool by walking up to the respective bush/flint and pressing your interact key. (Default “E) Once all obtained a Tier 1 Camp Fire or Workshop is required to craft the Flint Harvesting Sickle. Once crafted you will need to equip it and you can start gathering!


Higher character levels are able to use better tiers of Harvesting Sickles:

It is advised to use the highest tier possible followed by the best gear score possible to best increase your gathering speed. 

Please note that the minimum level required tools require a knowledgeable crafter and one that hasn’t out-leveled the ability to craft low level tools. A crafter’s minimum gear score will increase with level. Check out the Engineering Crafting Guide (coming soon) for more information about this.

TIP: There are 2 major factors that come into play when trying to obtain items while harvesting. Harvesting Luck and Location determine what you obtain while harvesting. Don’t feel discouraged when first starting out and you are not able to find rare items. 

Where to find Harvesting Nodes

New World works in two different ways when it comes to zone loot. The first method is that the harvestable plant just doesn’t exist in a zone and the other method is the plant is in every zone, but can only access certain loot tables based on what zone you are in. 

Below are infographs for Herbs, Fungi, and Prismablooms that display where you can find the materials based upon the zone. 

How to level Harvesting

The information contained in this section will assist you in leveling your Harvesting Trade Skill. I will not be providing “optimal paths” because if everyone starts using them it would no longer be the optimal path now would it? 

Leveling Harvesting is a straightforward process. The general rule of thumb is if you can harvest it you should for the experience. There are some plants that will yield better experience over others in which you can focus your harvesting, but it will depend on the availability of these items as you may not be the only player seeking out these harvesting nodes.

Level 1 to 200:
In order to reach level 200 you will need a total of 465,521 experience. The best way to level up Harvesting is to gather Herbs, Blueberries, Berries, and Wirefiber(175) since they generate a base average of 13XP a second. The experience rates to time ratio is all calculated at a base gathering speed with no modifiers. It would be as if you were using a flint sickle to harvest all the nodes while level 1. As you level up and gain more gathering speed this of course will change the ratios. 

At some point it is possible to instantly harvest herbs, if you happen to reach this while still leveling then it would be in your best interest to transition to Silkweed or Wirefiber if you can find them in abundance. This is because you would no longer be benefiting from having an increased gathering speed towards your experience rates.

TIP: Herbs can be found in abundance around forts and is likely to be your best place to level, Blueberries can be found in abundance near the Shattered Obelisk, Silkweed can be found in abundance in Mourningdale, and Wirefiber can be found in abundance in Edengrove. Use the interactive map to plot out your path! 

There is an experience perk that you will want to seek out on your sickle called Horticulture Discipline. This perk increases your Harvesting experience [3-9.4]% based on the gear score value of the sickle. The perk is limited to only sickles. Having this perk is a must if you are trying to power level Harvesting, but at level 200 it is useless. 

Intelligence 200 points is ideal while leveling. Having 200 points will give you 20% harvesting speed and a 10% weight reduction to harvested items. The 250 point bonus (10% Yield) doesn’t help leveling at all, while the 300 point bonus can be helpful if you are willing to spend Azoth to fast travel (10% Reduction). If you happen to have 100 extra points to spend afterwards you can put 100 into Strength for the 20 encumbrance or 100 into constitution for the 50/100 bonuses of 20% longer lasting food and 10% reduction on durability loss on tools. 

TRAPS: There are things in the game that may seem like they will help you level, but will not. Territory XP Gain bonus is one of these things. That buff does not apply to trade skills. Luck doesn’t affect your experience rates. Finding uncommon, rare, or legendary items while gathering doesn’t change the amount of experience you earn. Yield is the same as luck. Earning more of an item doesn’t increase the amount of experience you earn. 

Below is a chart showing the harvesting nodes, their size, how long it takes to harvest them in seconds, experience and ratio of experience to time.

Enhancing your Harvesting

Buffs and perks are the 2 main ways to enhance your harvesting. 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 Reinforced Harvesting Luck because that is an Armor Perk, but it can have 1 instance of Adored Harvesting Luck since it is an Amulet 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 Harvesting that we know of. 

Buffs can stack if they come from different sources. For example I can stack yield increase buff from a Proficiency potion and territory control. If you attempt to stack buffs from the same source it will just refresh your buff timer. 

There is a Harvester armor set that is ideal for players to use while Harvesting as it should always come with Intelligence and Reinforced Harvesting Luck. Players should encounter these items around level 19+ monsters as a rare drop and supply chests. This set is only set up for Tier 3/4/5 which is why players will not encounter them in early game. 

Each Perk has a related Crafting Mod that can be used in crafting to guarantee the perk in crafting and has been listed within Perk in the chance that you may want some armor crafted with the given perk.

*Separated luck values so players can see them. More information in the next section.
** Sickle reduction only works on sickles in your inventory since equipped items don’t count towards your encumbrance weight.

Harvesting Luck and You

The first thing I must explain is that 1,000 luck points equals 1% luck with Harvesting. The same can be said the other way; 1% Harvesting luck is equal to 1,000 luck points. This conversion works with Harvesting because all the loot tables used are 100,000 roll loot tables. In other cases a 100k loot table may not be used making that conversion incorrect.

With the conversion in mind, the BiS Harvesting Luck turns out to be 52.3% fully buffed or 52,300 Harvesting Luck points. 

The reason Luck is important for Harvesting is because it will increase the odds of you obtaining a rare harvesting item and an increase to items gathered. There are some thresholds that must be reached in order to obtain the rare items. These thresholds can be obtained by just level Harvesting, but can be reached sooner with the help of the resources talked about not too long ago. 

Thresholds:
  • +1,000 Points / 1.00% Ability to harvest Tier 2 & 3 rare fiber materials
  • +1,100 Points / 1.10% Ability to harvest Flowers from Magical Plants 
  • +1,450 Points / 1.45% Ability to harvest Tier 4 rare fiber materials
  • +1,800 Points / 1.80% Ability to harvest Tier 5 rare fiber materials

It is important to note that even though these are the thresholds to start seeing these items, it doesn’t mean your chances of seeing them are very high. At level 200 without any luck your chances of obtaining a Scalecloth is ~0.2%, but fully buffed with BiS your chances are ~33% from Wirefiber. 

Some Farm Plants are an expectation in the loot tables as they give you the chance to loot more by having higher luck. Wheat, Strawberry, Cranberry, Broccoli, Melon, Squash, Barley, Potato, Corn, Carrot, and Cabbage have an extra loot basket that gives you the chance to loot more. By default you have a 5% chance of this occurring as you need a roll of 95,000 or greater for this to happen. 

Harvesting Experience Table

A basic breakdown of the Harvesting Experience table.
Character XP is the amount of experience your character earns when your Harvesting level increases.
