Our New World Crafting Leveling guide will help you quickly grind out your crafting professions as fast as possible.

Amazon’s New World crafting feature is an important aspect of the game. It allows players to create strong and useful items from gathered and refined materials. Which includes the usual weapons, armors, potions to even furniture for your home. New World currently offers 7 crafting skills. These are Armoring, Arcana, Cooking, Engineering, Furnishing, Jewelcrafting, and Weaponsmithing.

And of course, to get the best out of them you need to level up the crafting skills. In turn, giving you access to more craftable and stronger items. As you level up your crafting skills, your yield for certain crafts increases. Hence giving you more items than before. The skills that offer these advantages are Arcana, Cooking, Leatherworking, Smelting, Stonecutting, Weaving, Woodworking. Additionally, leveling up crafting in New World also increase gear score and chances of producing items with perks.

Furthermore, for crafting and refining one has to use the crafting stations that are located in all Settlement and some Outposts across the game world.
