How to Get Motes in New World

There are various kinds of Motes present in New world, and they all have their uses. If you’re searching for a unique weapon that sets you apart from the rest of the players, you’ll probably have to craft it yourself using a Death Mote. In this guide, we’ll be explaining what each Mote in New World does and how to get these Motes.

How to Get Motes in New World

There’re six different kinds of Motes scattered around New World. They’re embedded into magical plants and magical creatures.

Magical plants and creatures yield different Motes depending on where on the map they’re located. But whatever Mote they yield, your harvesting skills need to be at level 30 at least for you to start harvesting Motes.

Once you’re at level 30, magical plants and creatures will start popping up on your compass, making it easier for you to track them and harvest Motes.
