If you're new to New World, here are some pointers to get you started with all the systems and dynamics. If you are a newbie, you may find Amazon Games' new colonial MMORPG to be a challenge. We've compiled seven essential New World suggestions to help you make the most of your time on the enchanted island.
- In New World, you can respec your skills.
A class structure isn't present in New World; instead, the emphasis is on learning and mastering a wide range of skills and weaponry in order to get access to new powers. It's possible to change your playstyle at any time, but your skill levels aren't permanent.
Attributes may only be respecced by opening your New World Character page and then selecting the Attributes tab. There is a "Respec" option at the bottom of the page that will refund your points, allowing you to redistribute them across Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, Focus, and constitution. You can do this at any moment until you reach level 20 for free. It will also cost you some New World gold each time you want to reskill.
Gaining mastery points by leveling each weapon type also gives you access to additional perks and abilities that can be used in combat. It's also possible to modify up your playstyle with a specific weapon type by using those mastery points. Once you achieve level 10 with your selected weapon type, you'll start paying for it. Use your early stages to experiment with different weapon kinds and qualities to discover your preferred playstyle early on!
- Auto-start will save your fingers.
Players in New World will be unable to use mounts to speed up their travels. In-game legend states that Aeternum is horseless, yet this means that players will be required to walk a great deal of the time.
You may ease some of the frustration by using the autorun feature, which is connected to the '=' key by default. To avoid wearing down your fingers on the WASD keys, it's highly recommended that you employ this function when exploring the island. You can control your character's movement by simply moving your mouse in the direction you like. Mantling is taken care of by autorunning as well, so even if you're running over uneven ground, you should be able to clamber your way across. Despite the availability of a stamina meter, there is no sprint option, which is incredibly frustrating.
- All of your New World items from the lower levels should be gathered up.
After completing the first few New World tasks, you'll begin to receive better equipment than the rags you started with. As you go through the game's early stages, you'll need to recycle your old gear. Salvaged gear provides you with Repair Kits, which are essential for maintaining high-end gear as you utilize it. When you first start out, try to salvage as much as you can so that you have a steady supply of them to deal with when you start getting some high-tier stuff.
Never ever sell your entry-level gear either. Markets in New World are controlled by players and function more like marketplaces. It is possible for other players to purchase your items after you have listed them for sale on a marketplace. Low-level gear, on the other hand, is useless to most players or can be quickly crafted, thus no one else will buy what you're offering.
- Inns are a great way to get around the New World and you don’t have to buy New World gold.
The New World has at least some rapid travel to cut down on the amount of walking you'll have to do. There are a few conditions and constraints for speedy travel, so it's a little difficult. For free rapid travel to a settlement, you must have checked into the local Inn first. In the future, you'll be able to quickly go to that Inn by clicking on the Settlement you want to visit on your map. Then you must select the 'Recall to Inn' option, which allows you to return to the town from practically any area for free. Use this option if you need to flee or avoid a long journey back to a Settlement for a mission. While on a PvP operation, you are not allowed to perform this.
Traditional fast travel requires you to already be in a Settlement, and you can only fast travel to other Settlements you've previously visited.. Speedy travel is expensive in Azoth, and going further afield will mean more Azoth outlays. Check for supply carts when you're in a Settlement. Those can be looted to acquire some extra materials for making things. Keep your eyes peeled for shimmering, glowing effects around these items.
