New World Best Solo Builds

New World offers players a lot of different ways to approach combat and playstyles. Hence there are a lot of character builds players can opt for in the game. We’ll be showing you New World Best Solo Builds for 1v1 combat.

New World Best Solo Builds

Below, we’ve selected some community-used New World Best Solo Builds that are best for single-target damage in PvP and PvE situations.

There are often times when you might have to effectively increase your damage against that single absolute beast of a monster you’re going to fight.

Using just about ANY class might otherwise slow down the battle. However, with Solo DPS builds, you can deal a lot of damage.

Warhammer and Hatchet Solo Build

A strength-focused build, with light armor. A good PvP and PvE build. One of the better Melee DPS builds, able to dish out more damage in short bursts.

Attributes

  • Strength: 300
  • Dexterity: 5
  • Intelligence: 5
  • Focus: 5
  • Constitution: 100

Warhammer Skills

Start getting the main skills of the Crow Crusher skill tree for the Warhammer. Ending with Path of Destiny, and its first passive. From the Juggernaut tree, we only need the passive abilities shown in the image below.

Spear & Musket Build

Another build that uses full light armor. This time however we focus on Dexterity rather than Strength.

We use this build by starting off with applying debuffs to enemies, laying traps, and using our Musket’s Shooter Stance ability to wither down foes. Making them slim pickings for when they finally do enter close combat.

Attributes

  • Strength: 5
  • Dexterity: 300
  • Intelligence: 5
  • Focus: 5
  • Constitution: 100

Spear Skills

For the Spear (Zoner), you need to get Deadly Consistency first on the left side of the entire skill tab. This gives you a +10% damage on heavy attacks dealt to a single target.

Grab Sweep which deals 75% weapon damage and knocks your enemies down along with its passives. Finish it off with Merciless Strength and Defensive Stance.

For the Impaler section, grab Skewer and all of its passives, doing the same with Vault Kick and picking the rest of the options exactly as shown in the image below:

Musket Skills

The first main ability we get is the Powder Burn, we get the last passive in the first row before that, along with both of its passives. We get Shooter’s Stance and its passives next, after which we switch skill trees.

In the second skill tree, we get Traps and the three passives below it. This completes our main abilities, now we just need to choose the right passives, follow the image below to see which ones we selected.

Hatchet & Life Staff Build

As a solo player, for PvP and for killing elite mobs, having both high damage and healing abilities is an excellent combination. You can dash out damage and sustain your health making you quite strong in any situation.

Attributes

Start by taking Focus up to 150 and then focus on constitution and strength.

  • Strength: 100
  • Dexterity: 5
  • Intelligence: 5
  • Focus: 250
  • Constitution: 50

Hatchet Skills

Start by Taking Berserk and two of its passives. Follow that with Raging Torrent and its two passives, increasing your attack speed.

This is enough for the healing skill tree, now we move over to the Protector skill tree. Here we take Beacon (damage ability) and Light’s embrace (healing ability) and their respective passives. For the remaining passives see the image below.

Axe & Hatchet Build

This is our first full heavy armor build, with a focus on both constitution and strength. This build can take a lot of damage, the ideal approach is to focus on one strong enemy, finish them, and then back out to recover some HP and then repeat.

  • Intelligence: 5
  • Focus: 5
  • Constitution: 200
