New World is much more than just killing monsters and doing quests. As a life skill MMO, a big part of the gameplay revolves around various professions and trade skills, one of which is engineering. In this guide, we will help you with leveling up your Engineering skill in New World so you can craft better items.
New World Engineering Leveling
There are a total of 7 crafting-based trade skills to choose from in New World. Players can choose the profession in the game, which majorly focuses on crafting and also works as the main source of income through trading.
Here, we will first discuss the use of Engineering, followed by leveling up Engineering skill efficiently without wasting resources or going out of your way.
Engineering is a Crafting Trade skill, allowing players to craft ranged weapons such as Bows and Muskets, as well as the ammunition required for these weapons.
Higher levels in Engineering allows players to craft better and stronger weapons and also helps to increase the Gear Score of the weapons.
Engineering can be performed at Workshops and Forge. Workshops are used for making ranged weapons and their ammunition and the Forge is used to build melee weapons. These are found in almost all settlements and towns and you can upgrade the tier of a settlement’s workshop or forge by taking part in Town Projects.
You need to have better tiers on the workshops as certain items can only be crafted at a certain tier level.
Engineering requires a lot of material as you will be crafting a lot of ammunition for weapons. Most of these items can be found by trading with other players, but this requires you to take part in the extensive Economy System the game has to offer.
However, having a few extra skills that will complement Engineering will help you get a long way easily. These skills are a few of the recommended companion skills:
Benefits of Leveling up Engineering
Weapons and Ammunition are one of the most basic requirements in New World so makes sense that these will sell like hotcakes. Any high-level engineer making quality weapons with a good Gear Score will be in high demand in the market.
Leveling up your engineering and using that to craft advanced tools also guarantees you to make money and earn perks.
When you use Azoth while crafting your tools, you increase the chance of acquiring perks. You can also use the money that you made from selling tools on some good quality food that grants you a boost to craft beyond your limits.
Being an Engineer allows you to also create different melee weapons such as swords and hammers, which are also a requirement for smaller settlements as Town Projects.
To make better items, you need to level up your engineering. The task of leveling up engineering is pretty easy and you can easily accomplish it.
How to Power Level Engineering
The only way to level up your crafting skills is by crafting lots and lots of items. Crafting of every item provides you experience that counts in leveling up.
Leveling up also allows you to unlock a number of recipes and it can also provide you with the existing recipes but with a number of additional advantages.
You can also craft Proficiency Boosters which only require you to have water, soul and air motes. However, before you can do that you need to be on engineering level 20 and you’ll also need to increase your harvesting skills.
One of the ways we recommend you to level up your crafting skills is to opt for the lower-tier items. The reason behind this is that as you move up the levels, the cost of the recipes increases too.
They can cost you double the amount than the market cost and can become inaccessible causing hurdles in leveling up. Also, you can gather lower tier items in a larger number with half of the price in what they would’ve cost originally.
Below we have given instructions on tips to take your Engineering skill level to 200 in New World in the fastest and most economical way so you don’t waste too much of your precious money Keep in mind that the coin costs mentioned below will differ from server to server.
