You need to upgrade your tools in order to get better results when you craft new items in New World. Good tools will also help you easily acquire new resources as you progress through the game. This is why it is really important to upgrade your tools. To do so, you actually need to craft the tools in your own workbench. In this guide, we will show you how you can do so.
How to Upgrade Tools in New World?
Acquire Good Metals
The first thing you need to do in order to enhance the quality of your tools is by acquiring good metals. This is because you need good quality metal in order to be able to craft high-grade tools. Keep in mind, however, that the recipe for the tools remains the same. What changes is the fact that you will now be using ingots of higher quality. For example, instead of iron for a steel logging axe, you will need steel ingots. By upgrading to a steel logging axe, you will notice an increase of 250% in the gathering speed. By leveling up your smelting and mining skills, you will have the ability to get ingots from rare metals.
Apply Perks on Tools to Upgrade them
By adding perks and Azoth to your new hardware, you stand the chance to get much better tools. With the help of Azoth, you will be able to receive enhanced durability, quicker speeds of gathering, and additional resources. By spending a little more resources than normal for tools you use very often (like steel), you stand the chance to get your hands on some cool bonuses.
Acquire Tools from Others
If you do not want the hassle of having to craft your own tools from scratch, you need not worry. If you want to, you can get a new set of tools from a friend who has a higher-level engineering skill. In case you cannot do so, you can also buy these tools from several other players via the trading post in the game. Keep in mind that you will need to save up some money if you wish to buy these items.
These are all of the different ways you can upgrade your tools in New World. You can use this ability to progress further in the game, while also acquiring important resources and items. You can try out any of the methods mentioned here to do so.
