New World Legendary Weapon Guide

Complete New World Legendary Weapon Guide

In this guide we will dive into the legendary weapons of New World, Amazon’s new PvP/Gathering focused MMORPG. This guide has been updated since the Void Gauntlet has been released in Patch 1.1.

Legendary Weapons can be more powerful than regular weapons of the same level and are the final tier in Item Rarity in New World. Legendary Weapons have a unique name and come with a set of fixed Gear Scores and curated Perks.

Legendary items are available for all levels of players, but some require that the player takes on difficult challenges like Expeditions. While all legendary weapons are good, you will want to carefully study each to pick a weapon that suits your playstyle and goals.

How to Unlock Legendary Weapons in New World

Mountainhome Zoomed Out Location: New World

In some cases to unlock legendary weapons in New World, you need to complete the pre-requisite quests, which start with Eintou Madaki in Mountainhome, before you could unlock the quests to legendary weapons. Mountainhome is an outpost located in the Northern region of Great Cleave, a region recommended for level 40-60 players.

Legendary Weapons in New World How to Unlock
Mountainhome Location: New World

Madaki’s Stratagem is the quest to unlock legendary weapons in New World. This is the quest to get the legendary weapon molds. You must also have 20 Weapon Mastery to craft the weapon you want to make. You can start the quests earlier than 20 weapon mastery, but to craft them you must have 20. To gain 20 weapon mastery of a specific weapon type, you must use it in battle with enemies. Through defeating enemies with your weapons, you will gain weapon mastery up until mastery level 20.

Once you have completed Magaki’s Strategem in Shattered Mountain, and Legatus Fulvius’s quest series in Reekwater, you can go to Antiquarian Abbintgon in Reekwater to continue on your legendary weapon quest series.

You will be given the quest to gather quest materials so that the NPC can make the legendary weapon. You can imagine that this will to several hours collecting all the materials. Once you have all the materials, turn in your quest to obtain your legendary weapon in New World.
