Food Buffs for Mining in New World
Cooking food is one of the ways to improve your chances at rare items while mining in New World. When you have added mining luck, you have chances to obtain items such as Fae Iron from iron veins for example. The below table shows all food buffs that currently affect mining luck. Be sure to level up your cooking skill early to make the most of your mining runs!
To understand better how the “luck rating” system works with the overall chances, check out this post, it explains how the RNG works exceptionally well.

When crafting a mining pickaxe, use a Miner’s Charm to increase the chance of more rare drops from mining, more mining experience, or higher yield when mining. These charms are typically acquired from killing mobs or looting chests. Higher Gear Score will land higher percentages. There are currently three miner’s charms in the game:
- Steel Miner’s Charm (3%-9.4% More Mining Experience)
- Starmetal Miner’s Charm (2%-9.3% Increased Chance at Finding Rare Items)
- Orichalcum Miner’s Charm (10%-19% Increased Yield from Mining)
Using these charms when crafting will give you the Miner’s Luck perk to your pickaxe. The Miner’s Luck perk does not affect Equipment and Item drops, it only affects the drop rate of the Rare Resources associated with the resource being gathered. These rare resources will be discussed in the next section of the Complete New World Mining Guide.
You can get the Miner’s Luck perk on your mining pick, your amulet, and also your armor to stack these chances. You can also randomly gain this perk when crafting, if you are lucky!
