There is a wide variety of resources in Amazon‘s MMO New World. These resources are needed in order to progress and enjoy the game at its fullest. The resources can be categorize by the way you would acquire them, so we are looking at three different categories: Resources to be gathered, Resources to be refined, and resources to be crafted.
Below you will find a complete list of resources grouped in the aforementioned categories, you may click on each of them in the list to jump to the particular section. It is also important to begin the guide by explaining and listing the different skills that are related to collecting and working with resources. These skills are known as Trading Skills.
These resources do not require any tool or gathering skill to be collected:
The skills that you will be using to get and make use of resources are called Trading Skills. These are skills that you character posses that do not influence battle. There are a total of 17 trade skills available to master. Five of them are Gathering Skills, another 5 are Refining Skills, and the final 7 are Crafting skills.
As you level up these skills, you will be able to gather more and better resources, and even gain the ability to track the resource related to that skill, which can be incredibly useful.
As you progress in each of these skills you will be able to take more and more advantage out of the resource itself, and when you start refining them, the higher the base skill level the more you’ll get out of the resource. Also, you gain the chance to produce extra refined resources as your Refining Skill continues to grow. You will also need a Refining Table, which is upgradable, to be able to refine your different Raw Resources.
The Refining Stations are the Following:
Loom, used to craft cloth materials.
Smelter, used to create ingots and charcoal.
Stonecutting Table, used to create blocks and cut gems.
Tannery, where you will turn your Raw Hides into Leathers.
Woodshop, to be able to create Planks out of your collected wood.
As you continue to level up your crafting skill, more and better recipes become available to you, allowing you to move up in the New World chain. Crafting Skills also require you to use a Crafting Station.
The Crafting Stations are the following:
Arcane Repository, to create Magical Weapons, Tinctures, and Potions.
Forge, allowing to create Weapons, tools and Apparel.
Kitchen, that you can use to create Dyes, and of course, meals and drinks.
