How to Start Harvesting in New World

To start harvesting in New World, you will need to make a sickle. You can craft a flint sickle right away at any campfire or in any settlement. If you are wondering how to craft a flint sickle, you require:

  • 1 Flint
  • 1 Green Wood

You can find flint lying around pretty much anywhere. Just look where you are running and you will see what look like rocks, usually with a bit of brown/beige color to them. For green wood, you can simply gather any bushes you see around you. Alternatively, if you have already made a Logging Axe for Logging, then you can chop young trees to obtain the Green Wood.

The screenshot below shows a boulder beside several flint. If you see rocks like this laying around, be sure to pick up a few for your crafts. After you gather your flint and green wood, head over to a campfire or a settlement and craft a flint harvesting sickle.

How to Make Harvesting Faster

If you already have read our other gathering guides, this section will also be very familiar to you. If you have already read this section in our other guides, simply check out the materials list below, as all other steps and explanations are the same.

Territory Standing Reputation

The first option to make harvesting faster, or to make any gathering skill faster, is to choose this option when you rank up in reputation for a region. When you gain Territory Standing in a region, you are allowed to choose 1 of 3 upgrades, which differ each time. Sometimes you will have the option to “Increase Gathering Speed by 3.0%” while in the region. If you chose this, you can begin to stack these to significantly increase your gathering speed while in that region.

Upgrade Your Gathering Tools

Using a flint harvesting sickle will only get you 100% harvesting speed. Sure, 100% sounds like a lot, but this speed is actually pretty slow. If you have some other gathering skills leveled already or some gold to spend at a trading post, you can craft an iron sickle pretty much right away as well. Crafting an iron sickle will increase your harvesting speed to 125%-139% depending on the attributes you get.

For how to craft an iron sickle, head to a work bench inside a settlement and use your engineering skill to craft one. The ingredients you will need are:

  • 1 of Any type of leather
  • 2 of Any type of timber / refined wood
  • 7 of Iron Ingots

Where To Get The Materials

You can obtain the leather from skinning animals. For this, you will need to have a flint skinning knife at the very least. You will kill and skin an animal, then take their hide to the tannery in town to turn it into leather. Alternatively, you can buy 1 leather from the Trading Post in town, they should be very cheap.

The same goes for 2 pieces of timber. You will need to take Green Wood into town and cut it into timber. Alternatively, go to the trading post and purchase 2 timber if you are looking for a quick turnaround and do not have the materials yet.

For iron ingots, you can find Iron Veins and use your mining skills to extract iron ore. Again, you will need a mining pick for this. You can go out and find these veins, mine the ore, then smelt them in town to create iron ingots. Of course, if they are affordable you may choose to buy them off the trading post if you do not already have these materials. Iron veins can be hard to come by unless you are specifically looking for them.

Once you have gathered the required materials, you can craft the iron sickle in New World and your harvesting speed will be significantly faster! Scroll further down our New World Harvesting Guide to see where you can gather each type of material.

How To Obtain Each Tier of Upgraded Harvesting Sickle

The efficiency you gain when crafting your first iron sickle does not stop there. There are 5 tiers of sickles that you can utilize and upgrade to. Each tier will increase your harvesting speed, but higher tier sickles are not fully required to harvest higher level resources.

An important note to the base gathering speed listed below is that these are the base speeds. You can sometimes roll better speeds if you are lucky or use additional items/azoth which we will cover later in the New World Harvesting Guide.

How To Get Better Items and Rare Drops: New World Harvesting Guide

Food Buffs for Harvesting in New World

Cooking food is one of the ways to improve your chances at rare items while harvesting in New World. The below table shows all food buffs that currently affect harvesting luck. Be sure to level up your cooking skill early to make the most of your harvesting 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.

Charms & Other Perks

When crafting gear, use a Charm to increase the chance of more rare drops from harvesting. These charms are typically acquired from killing mobs or looting chests. Here are the harvesting charms currently in New World:

Using these charms when crafting will give you the Botanist’s Luck or Botanist’s Yield perk to your sickle. The Botanist’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 later in the Complete New World Harvesting Guide.

 

You can get the Botanist’s Luck or Yield perk on your harvesting sickle, your amulet, and also your armor to stack these chances. You can also randomly gain this perk when crafting, if you are lucky!

 

You can also use a Verbena Leaf or a Verbena Flower to increase Harvesting luck as well.

  • Verbena Leaf will increase Harvesting Luck by 2%-5% on an armor slot when crafting
  • Verbena Flower will increase Harvesting Luck by 5%-9.5% on an amulet slot when crafting.

What Trophies Can I Make to Increase Harvesting Luck?

There are 3 trophies you can make to store in your house, if you own one yet. You can craft these using the Furnishing skill. These trophies significantly increase your Harvesting luck and therefore your chances at finding rare items while Harvesting in New World. Here is a breakdown of all Harvesting trophies in New World.

How To Hold More Weight In New World

In addition to food buffs, charms, and trophies that you can use while harvesting for extra luck, you may find yourself getting full bags and becoming encumbered. Being encumbered means you will walk instead of run, and you will not be able to recall to an inn or fast travel. This can be quite a set back when trying to make a big haul of Harvesting before you head back to town.

Luckily, there are currently 3 encumbrance potions you can chug to increase your encumbrance amount for a period of time. This may be just enough to farm more and recall with all your goodies. Unfortunately we do not have the data quite yet on exactly how much encumbrance limit is increased per potion, but will update this table when the data is available.

How To Increase Yield To Get More Materials While Harvesting

Add Perks to Raise Yield from Harvesting

When you are crafting any of your Harvesting Sickles 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 harvesting. To increase the yield and get more out of harvesting, you will want the “Harvesting Yield” Perk on your sickle 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 harvesting run 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.

Here are all the current proficiency potions available in New World:

All Available Harvesting Perks in New World

The following table is a list of all the currently available perks you can add while crafting to increase harvesting attributes. Keep this in mind if you are looking to increase your yield, make gathering faster, or have better chances at finding rare items while harvesting.

As you will read in the description, each of these perks scales depending on the gear score it is applied to. The higher the gear score, the better your perk!

New World Harvesting Guide: Where to Find Harvesting Materials

When you first start harvesting in New World, you will be able to gather from five types of plants. Each of these harvestable plants give you different types of materials. All of them can be found right here in our New World Harvesting Guide. Be sure to also check out the interactive New World map that we’ve utilized here to show you the best places to go! You can use this map to do your own research as well to look for other areas if you do not like our suggested routes.

Farm Plants

farm plants new world

Farm plants can be harvested with 0 harvesting skill, all you need is a sickle. These come in many forms, much of what you are likely already familiar with in the real world. These are a great source of cooking ingredients and include:

Barley, Berry, Blueberry, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Corn, Cranberries, Honey, Melons, Nuts, Potatoes, Squash, Strawberries, and Wheat.

You will not earn a high amount of harvesting experience for these, but you will earn some. They are very useful for other professions such as cooking. We will not go into every best place to find these, because there are so many categories and they are spread out across the world. You can utilize this New World interactive map to toggle on or off specific items on this list.

Some key highlights for areas of a few items from this category:

Nuts

Nuts can be found very densely populated in Monarch’s Bluffs as seen in this portion of the map:

 

nuts locations new world
Blueberries and Squash

Blueberries and Squash are much harder to come by. One of the best and easiest places to find these is a farm just southeast of Everfall Town, in Everfall:

blueberries squash new world map
Cranberries

Cranberries are much more scarcely scattered. Cranberries can also be found predominantly in Everfall territory, as well as the east side of Monarch’s Bluffs:

cranberries map new world

Where To Find Fungi & Dyes in New World

  • Bumbleblossom & Brown Dye- Weaver’s Fen
  • Tanglewisp & Cyan Dye – First Light
  • Cascaded Gillflower & White Dye – Great Cleave
  • Corrupted Bloodspore & Red Dye- Shattered Mountain
  • Weeping Shellbed & Cyan Dye – Reekwater
  • Fronded Petalcap & Turquoise Dye – Windsward

  • Void Pitcher & Violet Dye – Ebonscale Reach
  • Warm Platecap & Green Dye – Monarch’s Bluffs

Where To Find Hemp & Fibers in New World

Hemp fibers new world

Hemp in New World can actually come in a few colors. The picture above shows you what it looks like in some settings, with a purple shade. In other settings, it can appear in more of a beige or brown color (below).

hemp fibers new world

Hemp is gatherable at 0 harvesting skill, and is trackable at 25 skill. If you are wondering where to get fibers for your town project board quests, in New World, fibers come from Hemp. When you harvest a hemp plant in New World, it will give you fibers. These fibers can be used at a Loom to create linen and cloth for crafting clothes.

Hemp fibers can be found in many places across New World, but by far the most dense area is right on the border of Windsward and Monarch’s Bluffs. There also happens to be a Spirit Shrine for fast travel right at this spot. This may make it a popular area, but there are many Hemp spawns surrounding it. When this spot is too busy, head a bit farther southeast to find a less populated area for hemp:

hemp map location new world

Where To Find Herbs & Hyssop in New World

You can also gather herbs throughout the map to obtain Hyssop. Herbs are often found in the same areas as Hemp. This is a main ingredient in early health potions using the Arcana profession. Herbs appear looking like lavender, with blue/purplish hue:

herbs in new world

When you harvest herbs you will obtain Hyssop and sometimes an additional item as well. In the early game, herbs are quite easy to come by. You can find a dense population just southeast of Windsward Town by the beaches. You can also head to the fast travel area we mentioned in the Hemp section and gather both at the same time. Here are a few spots they are most abundant in for the early game:

herb locations new world

If you are looking to pick up herbs and you are a higher level, later in the game, there is another area that has even more herbs. In Ebonscale Reach in the northeast corner of the zone, there is an immense abundance of herbs close to a fast travel shrine:

herb location new world

Where To Find Silkweed (Silk Fibers) in New World

Silkweed can be harvested in New World at harvesting skill 100. Silkweed is trackable at 125. This resource looks extremely similar to Hemp, but has a more blue color to it:

silkweed new world

When you harvest Silkweed, you can obtain Fibers and Silk Fibers, which in turn can be used at the Loom in town to make clothing. Some Silkweed can appear more purple instead of blue, which make it look even closer to the color of Hemp.

Silkweed is much harder to come by compared to Hemp and Herbs, as it is spread out amongst many zones with only a scarce amount of spawns in each. If you are looking to gather this at a lower level where you are still traversing the lower 6 regions of the map, try either Southern Cutlass Keys or Eastern Monarch’s Bluffs:

silkweed locations new world

Alternatively, if your character is already in the higher level regions, Brightwood has an abundant source of Silkweed. The region border between Restless Shore and Mourningdale also has many Silkweed spawns.

silkweed locations new world

Where To Find Wireweave (Wirefiber) in New World

Wireweave, or Wirefiber, can be harvested in New World at harvesting skill 175. It is trackable at harvesting skill 200. This resource also looks extremely similar to Hemp, but has an intense red color to it:

wireweave wirefiber new world

When you harvest this plant you will get Wire Fibers. This is generally a high level gatherable, so it is very scarce in the lower regions of the map. If you are looking to get your hands on some in the lower level regions, the best place is in Windsward. There are a few spawns just south of Fort Windsward, and a few more just east or west of it:

wireweave locations new world

Alternatively, if you can make your way over to Reekwater, there is a few spawns in the southwestern area of the region:

wireweave map new world

For higher level places, by far the best place to find Wireweave for Wirefibers is in the northern region of Edengrove:

wirefiber map locations new world

Where To Find Fungi in New World

Fungi in New World are located differently than the other types of gatherable resources. They are gatherable at 0 harvesting skill, and can never be tracked. Each type of fungi is actually exclusive to a specific region. In this Complete New World Harvesting Guide you can see every kind of fungi in the game and exactly where the spawn points are.
