Add Perks to Raise Yield from Harvesting in New World

When you are crafting any of your sickles, they all have chances to add a perk. A perk will give your sickle 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 ore out of harvesting, you will want the “Harvesting Yield” Perk on your sickle which makes it yield 10% more resources.

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.
