This article combines the best skinning perks and the best ways to increase your skinning yield in New World all in one. Here we discuss all skinning perks and how to use proficiency potions to increase your gathering yield.
Add Perks to Raise Yield from Skinning
When you are crafting any of your skinning knives or other items, they all have chances to add a perk. A perk will give your item a special attribute that may increase different aspects of the item.
You can add either a special item to your craft, or you can also add Azoth when crafting to increase the chance of getting a perk. Some of these perks increase the amount of items, or the yield, you can get from skinning. To increase the yield and get more ore out of skinning, you will want the “Skinning Yield” Perk on your Skinning Knife in New World which makes it yield 10% more resources.
You can also add perks to armor and amulets, as discussed in a following section. Utilizing as many of these as you can in your gear set will maximize yield.
Consume Proficiency Potions to Raise Yield of all Gathering Skills Temporarily
Another way to raise yield temporarily while on a gathering is to craft and consume Proficiency Booster potions. Some people think since this is a potion it must be crafted using the Arcana skill, but it is actually crafted using the Engineering skill, using a Workshop.
