New World Engineering Leveling Guide
Leveling Up Engineering with Gunpowder
In order to increase your engineering level in New World with Gunpowder, you will need to acquire Flint, Saltpeter, and Charcoal.
Of all these materials, Saltpeter is the easiest to get your hands on. You can also get Charcoal and Flint by harvesting them from nearby towns. You can do so by simply exploring the areas that are close to towns.
Using Iron Arrows is quite an important way to craft items that will help you in the quest of leveling up your engineering skills fast. To do so, you will need to make thousands of arrows.
For every arrow that you make in New World, you will receive +103 in Engineering. This makes it one of the most productive sources of leveling up.
To make these arrows, you will need Feathers, Iron, and Wood. You can acquire wood from the Green Wood located at the Woodshop. All you need to do is chop down a few trees, and that’s quite literally it!
As far as Feathers are concerned, you can find those on Turkeys. You can acquire them by harvesting them from these animals. To do so, eliminate the Turkeys whenever you see them anywhere in the game. You can easily come across them in the woodlands that are present in several areas of the map.
You can get your hands on Iron from several Iron Ore locations like Everfall, First Light, Windsward, and Cutlass Keys. Read our guide on how to get iron in New World to properly understand how you can acquire this precious resource.
Crafting Iron Cartridges is one of the best transitions you can make if you choose to level up with the help of Gunpowder. These particular items are more valuable than the Iron Arrows. This also means that you will be able to sell them quickly and for a lot of money in the market.
In order to make the Iron Cartridges, you need to acquire Gunpowder, Linen, and Iron. Since you already have the Gunpowder and Iron from the earlier steps mentioned in this guide, you will only need Linen. To get Linen, you need to acquire fibers. You will be able to get these fibers from Hemp, after which you need to refine them into Linen.
Hemp can be found in areas like Windsward, Amrine Temple, Cooper’s Ranch, Monarch’s Bluff, Chason Steep, First Light, Clearwater Bend, and First Light.
Weak Proficiency Booster Potion
The last way to level up Engineering in New World is with the help of Weak Proficiency Booster Potions. You will need to craft these potions in order to have a chance of leveling up.
In order to craft these potions, you will need 1 Water, 1 Air Mote, 1 Soul Mote. Once you acquire these items, you will be able to initiate the process to craft these potions.
You can easily acquire Water from anywhere on the game’s map. You can harvest Soul Motes and Air Motes from ore veins and rare plants. With every potion that you craft, you will receive a boost of +36 experience.
These are all of the different ways you can level up your Engineering skill in New World. As you can see, a lot of these steps are easy to follow. The processes for these steps are quite easy to execute in most cases. Since leveling up in this skill is quite important, you need to pay careful attention to the instructions in this guide.
