Known Leveling Exploits

Bear Farming Exploit

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills

There is an exploit that has fast infinite spawning bears! You can head to the Lodestone Lair, in Monarch’s Bluff to find a cave with infinite spawning Lodestone Bears. The bears will be level 25 so keep that in mind when going for this exploit. We recommend you join a group to make it much easier, and if you are under-leveled you can still level up your Tracking & Skinning by skinning the corpses!

Boar Farming Exploit

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills

There is a spot where Boars will infinitely spawn constantly, allowing you to continuously farm them! You can find it in the Restless Shore region. There is a point of interest called Boarsholm near the northern border where the boars will be constantly spawning. The boars will be level 40 so we recommend you your level to be as close as possible to avoid getting killed.

Just like for the bear farming exploit, we recommend you farm them in a group to make it easier.

How to Level Up Fast

Always Do Town Board Missions

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills

One of the fastest ways to level up in New World is to always accept Town Board Missions whenever you can as it rewards you with a ton of EXP per completion. They can range from bringing a no. of resources to hunting certain no. animals.

Keep in mind that you are only allowed to take 3 missions at a time and you’ll have to wait until the Town Board refreshes to get more, so always make sure to complete the mission with the highest EXP reward first so that it doesn’t expire when the reset happens.

Buy Resources from Trading Posts

The Town Board Missions with bringing x amount of items/resources is one of the easiest and fastest ones to complete for easy EXP. You can simply buy the resources or materials needed and craft them to complete the objective.

Participate in Faction Missions

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills

If you completed all the missions in the Town Board way too early and have a lot of time in your hands before the refresh, doing Faction Missions is a good way to spend your time to maximize the amount of EXP you get.

You also get faction tokens, which you can exchange for equipment and items in the faction shop.

Partake in Expeditions

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills

Another way of leveling your character fast is to do Expeditions with other people. Not only will you get rewarded with EXP but also rare and powerful items that will help you progress quickly throughout the game.

Farm Red Landmarks With a Group

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills

Be on the lookout for Landmarks that have a fiery red symbol on them. There are several dangerous enemies inside these landmarks, but they offer a generous amount of exp when killed, especially if you pull mobs in great numbers. Aside from that, you are also rewarded with chests containing a lot of loot inside.

Before heading into one, make sure to set up camp and set it as your respawn point. It is recommended that you take on these zones with at least 5 people. Everyone should be well equipped with a proper team composition, complete with a Tank, DPS, and a Healer. Make sure to only pull mobs that your party can handle, or else there’s a chance of being wiped.

Prioritize EXP Bonuses

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills

Taking the EXP Bonus every time it appears as a reward for your Territory Standing Rank Rewards is not the best choice as it does not scale very well. But getting it when there are no better options will provide you some benefit.

Make sure you’re doing the missions inside the territory where the bonuses are.

Make sure to Log Off at a Settlement

Logging off at a settlement for a while will give your character a Rest Bonus when you log back in. This will give an extra EXP whenever you do something to gain it. Make sure that when you are logging off that you are in a settlement to get the most of your EXP grinding when you come back!

How to Level Crafting and Trade Skills Fast Pt.1

Mining

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Prioritize Getting Iron Tools or Better
  • Choose the Gathering Speed Bonus
  • Keep Mining Iron, Silver, and Gold During Early Game
  • Start Mining Alchemy Stones At Level 50
  • Clear Out Enemies Before You Mine Nodes

Mining can be leveled up quickly by mining Iron, Silver, and Gold Veins in the early game. Iron and Silver are abundant with the former having the most nodes that are easy to find. Getting Iron and better pickaxes will decrease the gathering time, with the Gathering speed Territory Standing bonus from further lowering the time it will take for you to mine these nodes.

Once you hit Mining Level 50, it is best to start mining Alchemy Stones as well. These will provide you more EXP as the amount from Iron, Silver, and Gold Veins will not be enough.

Logging

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Cut Down Trees to Get Logging EXP
  • Cut Down Trees Near Settlements
  • Upgrade your Logging Axe from Flint
  • Choose the Gathering Speed Bonus
  • Start Gathering Mature Trees at Level 50 Logging
  • Chop Wyrdwood and Ironwood Trees Once You Unlock Them

Logging can be leveled up quickly by cutting down trees fast. Using an Axe better than the Flint one you get early on will make cutting down Young Trees much faster, combine it with the Gathering speed Territory Standing bonus to be as fast as possible. Because you will be cutting a lot of trees down to level up you will want to do it near a settlement as you can end up being encumbered fast if you hold onto the logs.

Once you reach certain levels you will unlock the ability to cut down new trees. You will want to start cutting these trees down as the Young Tree you start with will not give enough EXP by then.

Harvesting

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Harvest Plants and Magical Creatures for Harvesting EXP
  • Craft or Upgrade Your Harvesting Sickle
  • Harvest Herbs During the Early Game
  • Gather Hemp from Grassland Areas
  • Choose the Gathering Speed Bonus
  • Start Gathering Silkweed and Wirefiber Once You Unlock Them

Leveling Harvesting quickly will require you to harvest a bunch of Herbs and Hemp in the early game. To harvest them fast you will want to have the highest possible tier of Sickle equipped. Choosing the Gathering speed Territory Standing bonus will also increase your harvesting speed. Harvesting Magical Creatures will also increase your Harvesting, but they are much rarer.

Once you unlock the higher tier harvesting nodes like Silkweed and Wirefiber, you will want to start farming those as they will give more EXP.

Tracking & Skinning

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Use Iron Skinning Knives or Better
  • Use a Bow or Musket for Hunting
  • Hunt Prey and Farm Animals in the Early Game
  • Hunt Predators for High EXP and Territory Standing

Leveling up Tracking and Skinning will require you to hunt and skin wild animals, from harmless prey to dangerous predators. Having a high-tier skinning knife will make the skinning much quicker. If you are not leveled high or have weak equipment at the moment, it is faster to focus on prey (e.g., Rabbits, Boars, and Elk) and farm animals (e.g., Cows and Pigs) as they are weaker and mostly won’t fight back.

Once you have better equipment you will want to hunt predators like Wolves and Lynxes. They will give more of a fight but will provide much more EXP.

Fishing

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Craft a Fishing Pole and Catch Fish
  • Upgrade Your Fishing Poles
  • Use Different Kinds of Bait for Fishing Bonuses

Leveling up fishing will have you using fishing poles at bodies of water and catching fish. The higher-tier fishing poles will increase your chances of catching fish and increase your EXP gain, so craft or buy the best fishing pole you can get. Using Bait will also give different bonuses when fishing, with bigger and better fish giving more EXP.

Smelting

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Prioritize Crafting Charcoal When Starting Out
  • Gather Resources Near Your Settlement
  • Start Mining Iron and Silver Veins Once You Find Reliable Sources
  • Choose The Gathering Speed Option
  • Prioritize Gold Once You Reach Level 50
  • Buy Materials From The Trading Post

Leveling up Smelting will require you to use the Smelter to refine raw materials into Refined materials. The fastest way of getting levels, in the beginning, is by turning Green Wood into Charcoal. This is easy as Green Wood is abundant and can be easily farmed or bought. Refining the early game ores will also net your a lot of EXP. Mining them can take a while but will also increase your Mining skill, but for the fastest way, you can just buy the raw ores.

Woodworking

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Gather As Much Green Wood As Possible
  • Refine In Bulk
  • Level Up Your Logging Simultaneously
  • Upgrade Your Logging Axe
  • Buy Raw Materials From The Trading Post

Woodworking is leveled up by refining raw wood materials into refined materials at the Woodshop. You can level your Logging at the same time as you will need a lot of wood to refine. But if you wish to level it up quickly without having to farm the wood, you can buy wood at the Trading Posts. Every time you unlock a new refined material, you will want to start getting the materials required for it and start refining those for more EXP.

Leatherworking

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Hunt Down Boars and Wolves
  • Upgrade Your Skinning Knife
  • Start Crafting Rugged Leather As Soon As You Reach Level 50
  • Buy Materials From The Trading Post

Gaining EXP for Leatherworking will require you to turn raw hides into refined leathers at a Tannery. Hunting animals like Board and Wolves are the best source of Rawhide as they are weaker and are usually nearby settlements. You can also buy Rawhides if you wish to cut downtime. Once you unlock Rugged Leather you can further refine the Coarse Leathers that you have refined to get even more EXP.

Weaving

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Farm a Large Amount of Hemp
  • Refine Plants Fibers at the Loom
  • Start Weaving Sateen, Silk, and Infused Silk Once Unlocked

You will need Fibers from Hemp and turn them into Linen to get EXP for Weaving at a Loom in the early game. You can also buy Fibers from the Trading Post, making it much faster to level Weaving. Once you unlock the next tier of refined material you will want to start to craft those for more EXP.

Stonecutting

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Craft Items Under the Stonecutting Skill Tree
  • Bulk Craft Stone Blocks to Quickly Level Up Stonecutting
  • Buy Raw Materials From the Trading Post
  • Craft Gemstones for Massive EXP

You will need to refine Stones into Stone Blocks at Stonecutting Tables for fast EXP in the beginning as Stones are plentiful and easy to farm. You can even buy them at Trading Posts to make the process faster. For even more EXP you will want to craft Gemstones, but these are much rarer to obtain. You can find them through mining but they can also be bought at Trading Posts for a price.

How to Level Crafting and Trade Skills Fast Pt.2

Cooking

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Cook Food with High Exp Reward
  • Level Up Your Gathering Skills
  • Buy Resources in Trading Post
  • Use High Tier Kitchens

Acquiring Cooking EXP will require you to turn ingredients into meals using Kitchens. In the beginning, you will only have access to a few recipes, we recommend you keep crafting the one that gives the most EXP. As you level up you acquire more recipes. If you can get their ingredients by gathering or buying them at the Trading Posts, then do so as they will give more EXP.

Weaponsmithing

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Craft Items Under the Weaponsmithing Skill Tree
  • Bulk Craft Your Chosen Weapon to Level Up Weaponsmithing
  • Salvage Unwanted Weapons

In the beginning, you will need to craft tier 2 weapons at a Forge to get EXP for Weaponsmithing. These will require a lot of Iron Ingots that you can craft or buy. The amount of Iron Ore used in the materials will affect how much EXP that weapon will give. The different Iron weapons have the same ratios so it will not matter which ones you craft.

Arcana

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Craft Lots of Potions
  • Level Up Your Gathering Skills
  • Use the Trading Post for Resources
  • Use High Tier Arcane Repository

Arcana can be leveled up quickly by crafting potions at a Arcane Repository. These are easier to craft in bulk as they require fewer resources to craft. At first, you are going to only have access to a few potions, but once you unlock the higher tier potions it is recommended to craft them as they give more EXP.

Armoring

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Craft Armor in the Forge and Outfitting Station
  • Level Up Your Gathering Skills
  • Buy Resources From the Trading Post
  • Bulk Craft Low-Tier Gloves

You can gain levels by crafting armor recipes at the Forge or Outfitting Stations. It is recommended to bulk craft low-tier gloves and gauntlets as they use the least amount of resources making it easier to use up an exact amount for EXP gains. For Armoring level 0-49 we recommend Coard Leather Gloves and Iron Plate Gauntlets, then for Armoing 50+, you should craft Rugged Leather Gloves and Steel Plate Gauntlets.

Furnishing

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Focus On Crafting Small Furnishings At The Beginning
  • Once Your Mining Hits Level 20, Prioritize The Warm Iron Sconce
  • Salvage Your Crafted Items
  • Start Crafting Ash Casual Chairs Upon Hitting Level 50
  • Buy Materials From The Trading Post

Furnishing is leveled up by crafting furnishings at a Workshop. This can be difficult as crafting furnishings can require a lot of resources with most of them using resources you can’t just farm. In the beginning, you should craft small furnishings to get EXP. Buy resources at the Trading Posts if you can for faster leveling. You can salvage the furnishing you have crafted as well to get back some of the resources used.

Once you hit level 50+ we recommend crafting Ash Casual Chair for more EXP gain.

Jewelcrafting

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Craft Trinkets in the Outfitting Station
  • Level Up Your Gathering Skills
  • Buy Resources From the Trading Post
  • Bulk Craft Flawed Amulets

Leveling Jewelcrafting will require you to craft trinkets at the Outfitting Station. We recommend you craft low-tier trinkets as the resources for them are easier to obtain, saving you time and money. If you bought the resources needed for the trinkets you can sell them at Trading Posts to get back some of the money.

Engineering

New World Leveling Guide For Trade Skills
  • Craft Items Under the Engineering Skill Tree
  • Bulk Craft Spears to Quickly Level Up Engineering
  • Salvage Unwanted Equipment

Engineering can be leveled up by crafting items under the Engineering Tree at Workshops or Forges . In the beginning, we recommend bulk crafting Treated Wood Spears as they only require refined wood which are easier to farm for. Besides the low-tier spear, you can also bulk craft tools higher than tier 1. They give decent EXP and can also be sold off at Trading Posts.
