The purpose of this New World Leveling Guide is to provide you with an efficient way to reach level 60. In New World, there are many different ways to level up. You can use quests, town board missions, faction missions, corrupted portals, expeditions, and more to reach max level. This guide will provide you with tips on leveling, what to focus on, and what to avoid during the leveling process.
Here is a list of unlockables that you will earn as you level up:
When you spawn into Aeternum for the first time you will be in a quick tutorial. If you do not want to play through the tutorial, you can skip it. Press ESC and choose “Skip to New World”.
If you want to get a free level with your sword you can stay in the tutorial. Make your way to the shielded enemy right before the path through the mountain. Once you kill the shielded enemy you will be rewarded with a sword skill point. You can then either proceed with the tutorial, or you can then skip to New World.
You have the option to skip the MSQ expedition quests. This is useful if you’re playing solo, or have trouble finding a group for a particular expedition. Solo quests that don’t require you to enter into the expedition are an option for players. So, while you are leveling, keep an eye on what your quest objectives are! However, if possible run the expeditions as they will award you with more experience than the solo quests.
Do not run straight into a settlement when you spawn on the beach. If you do this you will have to run back to the beach and complete the quests before you can accept any quests in the settlement. Do NOT skip the beach quests.
Once on the beach, you’ll want to run immediately to the main story quest giver at the watchtower. He will be marked on your map, so you can press the default key of “M” to see where he is.
It is recommended at this point that you stick to the main story quests on the beach if you are trying to level efficiently. You do not want to stop along the way to gather excess items or kill excess mobs.
However, you want to stop and pick up additional flint and wood so you can make tools at the campfire prior to heading into the settlement. You will need 4 flints and 4 wood to craft the items, but having a few more isn’t going to hurt. Crafting and equipping these tools early will help save you a little time later on.
Another useful thing to pick up as you’re completing the quests on the beach is herbs. These are used to create weak health potions and will be useful as you progress through some early levels. You can also collect Bulrush Cob along the water’s edge if you come across it. It’s also used to craft weak health potions.
As you progress through the main storyline on the beach it will tell you exactly where to go and what to do. These are very easy and straightforward quests that will eventually lead you to the nearest settlement.
Once in the settlement you will want to turn in and pick up any available quests and continue questing for maximum experience gain.
Bear in mind that any gathering quests you have can be done on your way to do other quests. Oftentimes there will be markers on your map for things like “gather wood.” You do not have to go to that specific location to gather the material. Gather it on your way to other quests so you don’t wander too far from your quest paths.
During this part of the questing there are a couple quests you may encounter (depending on your starting location) that can take some time to solve. Here’s a few tips for those quests:
For the quest titled “Minister Lochnir’s Mission” you will need to make your way into some Ruins. In order to get in you need to go up the North side stairs and around the wall. There you can walk over the fallen pillars into the middle of the area. Once inside you will need to dodge the lasers and make your way to the quest marker.
You can see where to jump by finding the white markers on the stone. This applies to all jumping puzzles.
For the quest “Verdant Restoration” you will need to place the stones in the following order from left to right: “X” “P” “T” symbol.
Once you reach level 17 you will be able to join a faction. The faction missions are located in Everfall. It’s recommended that you finish any quests you are working on and then head to Everfall to join a faction prior to continuing the main story.
There are three different faction enclaves in Everfall. The syndicate enclave is in the north, marauder enclave is in the west, and the covenant enclave is in the southeastern corner of the zone. You will need to choose which faction you wish to be a part of and then go to that enclave to begin the quest. These will be marked on your map once you reach level 17.
Joining a faction as soon as you can is recommended so that you can begin running your 3 daily faction missions for the additional experience they will provide. This will give you a nice experience boost each day.
You will have the option of completing all of the faction quests for each faction for additional experience as long as you do not accept any one faction.
After joining a faction you can then head back to the main story quest and side quests until you reach level 23. Level 23 is a crucial level because you will unlock the ability to gain access to the Amrine Excavation. You will be able to run the repeatable quest, Bones for Barkimedes and gain a good amount of experience from the expedition itself.
From here the most efficient way to reach max level is to simply continue questing. You will want to make sure you pick up all the side quests as you continue to progress the main story. It’s worth noting that you will gain access to 3v3 PvP arenas at level 20. You can do these to gain some experience and PvP track experience. However, it’s not very efficient simply for leveling.
To level quickly you should continue to do your questing loop until level 60. Remember you can skip the expeditions by choosing the solo option quests if you so choose.
There are some additional level milestones you should be aware of.
You will gain access to Startstone Barrows, and can utilize this expedition for gear drops and experience. There is also a nice repeatable quest called More Bones for Barkimedes that you can do to gain some decent experience as well.
At level 43 you will gain access to the Depths expedition, and can utilize this expedition for gear drops and experience. There is also a repeatable quest called Meat for Nekumanesh that you can utilize for some decent experience gains.
When you hit level 53, you will gain access to the Dynasty Shipyard Expedition, and can utilize this expedition for gear drops and experience. There is also a repeatable quest called Juscie for the Dynasty that you can utilize for some decent experience gains.
Upon hitting level 60 you will want to start quests in Shattered Mountain as soon as possible. The first few quests will reward you with gypsum orbs, which are important to your progression post 60.
There are solo farmable mobs (as a fresh 60) that drop gear score 590 named items that are not downscaled based on your expertise. These can all be upgraded to 600 and become legendary and get a 3rd perk by utilizing umbral shards. Here are a few options for farmable mobs to obtain decent gear at 60
o Red Claw
o The Surgeon
o Tzi-Wang the Immovable & Dau-Shen the Unstoppable, both in the Lonely Climb – Shattered Mountain
That’s it for the New World leveling guide. For more information on how to progress post level 60 make sure to check our Expertise and Umbral Shards guides.
