New World: All information about housing and which trophies will bring you the most



New World: All information about housing and which trophies will bring you the most

In New World, you can buy and decorate houses in settlements. In addition, the Housing System brings various bonuses and is an important part of the game. We at Nintendosmash show you in this article everything you need to know about the housing system, why housing is very advantageous, and which trophies you can put up.

In which settlements can I buy a house? There are several houses available in each settlement. There is no limit to how many players can buy the house because the houses are instantiated. So you don’t have to worry about all of your homes being snatched from under your nose.

How can I buy a plot of land? In order to own your own home, you have to meet various conditions.

First, you need level 15 to have access to the housing at all. After that, you must have expanded your reputation in an area to level 10 in order to unlock the house purchase.

Later in the game, you can own up to 3 houses in a settlement.

What kind of houses are there? There are 4 different levels of houses and each of them has its additional conditions. Here is an overview of the individual house levels and what you need to be able to unlock them:

  • Level 1 house / apartment
    • 5000 gold
    • Level 10 area call
  • Level 2 house / apartment
    • 10,000 gold
    • Level 15 area call
  • Level 3 house / apartment
    • 15,000 gold
    • Level 20 area call
  • Level 4 house / apartment
    • 20,000 gold
    • Level 30 area call

Note: The first house purchase has a 50% discount. Buying an expensive step directly from the first house can save more money.

Houses have additional costs: If your company does not control the area, you have to pay property tax every week. The guild that controls the area can regulate the tax rate at any time between 5% and 20% based on the purchase price of the house. So it can be that you have to pay up to 4000 gold per week for your level 4 house.

Therefore, think carefully about whether you want to buy houses in a certain area and first find out about the company and taxes in the respective territory.

What if i can’t pay the taxes? If you are in arrears with your payment, you will no longer be able to use all the advantages of the housing system (such as free teleportation every few hours) and you will not be able to make any further decorations until you have paid your debts.

What happens if the owner of the settlement changes? Even then you keep your house and do not lose it. However, the new owner can set different taxes, which then affect your wallet.

A plot of land is extremely helpful in your progress

What are the advantages of the housing system? Owning and equipping a plot of land brings you some strong advantages that help you enormously in the game. The higher the level of the house, the greater the bonuses you will receive.

Since New Word has no mounts or fast means of transport, the limited teleportation options are immensely important and time-saving. However, in addition to this benefit, there are other bonuses in the housing system that are overlooked. We’ll show you the advantages of the individual levels:

  • Level 1 plot
    • Teleportation to the respective area – 4 hours cooldown
    • 1 piece of furniture to expand the storage capacity in the respective settlement
    • 5 trophies
  • Level 2 plot
    • Teleportation to the respective area – 3 hours cooldown
    • 2 pieces of furniture to expand the storage capacity in the respective settlement
    • 5 trophies
  • Level 3 plot
    • Teleportation to the respective area – 2.5 hours cooldown
    • 3 pieces of furniture to expand the storage capacity in the respective settlement
    • 5 trophies
  • Level 4 plot
    • Teleportation to the respective area – 2 hours cooldown
    • 4 pieces of furniture to expand the storage capacity in the respective settlement
    • 5 trophies

Housing is good for your Azoth wallet: An additional big advantage is the reset of the teleportation time. This costs between 20 and 40 Azoth, unlike a regular Settlement to Settlement Teleportation, which can quickly devour 100+ Azoths.

Pay attention to your trophy selection

What are trophies and what do they bring? In New World, you can set up so-called “trophies” in your house to receive a global buff, depending on which one you need. These add to your happiness value when you pursue a particular activity. For example, the “Lumberjack Trophy” buff enables rarer materials to be found when cutting down.

Up to 5 trophies can be placed in the house at the same time.

Where do I get these trophies from? These can be made in the workshop. As always, the higher the level, the stronger the effect.

You can also purchase trophies from other players at the trading post if you don’t have the opportunity or time to lend a hand yourself.

Which trophies are most worthwhile? And here, too, New World shows its flexibility again. There is no such thing as a perfect trophy lineup. Depending on which craft or what you specialize in mining, your trophy collection should be decorated in the house. If you want to become an armorsmith, for example, then it makes sense to make the “armorsmith trophy”.

We show you universal trophies that can almost always be set up.

  • Lumberjack / Hunting / Harvesting / Mining – Trophy
    • Life skills are a big focus in New World. Placing one or more of these in the house makes perfect sense
  • Loot trophy
    • This increases the chance of a rare find when searching. Make sure to decorate if you have 1 free space
  • Fisherman trophy
    • For all fishing enthusiasts among you, this is the perfect ornament in your home.

In addition to the universal trophies, there are also individuals for certain vocations that you can custom-make or buy.

Who’s Got the Nicest House in New World?

In addition to the bonuses from fast travel and the trophies, the housing of course also offers the opportunity to decorate your own home according to your own wishes.

Since the players “share” the houses through different instances, Amazon has come up with a special feature. At the top of the interface for entering the houses, the people who have a particularly “pretty” house are displayed.

Other players can rate your house using points so that there is a small competition for the most beautiful house.

Far Cry 6: How to unlock the alternate ending

The latest games in the Far Cry license have the unfortunate tendency to include the ability to complete the game much faster than would be the case using classic progression. In Far Cry 5, all the player had to do was do nothing when Joseph had to be stopped at the very start of the game. In this case, after long minutes, the player was taken out of the area and Joseph could continue his petty traffic. without being worried by the police, end credits on the screen.

This originality is also present in Far Cry 6 even if it will take a little longer to have this possibility in the game. Do you want to unlock it? We explain everything you need to know, video support thanks to YouTuber Gun Itek, in order to unlock the “Hidden in full light” trophy.

Everyone has their own problems

When you disembark at the headquarters of Libertad (Libertad HQ), your new friends suggest that you leave with the boat left at your disposal as you had requested before helping them, or they continue to help them to overthrow Anton Castillo and his soldiers and thus free Yara.

While you just have to go talk to the Libertads to continue the classic adventure, if you turn after the cutscene to the boat and get in, you can take the waters towards Miami (west) and so trigger a special cutscene leading to end-game credits with an ending we won’t spoil for you, before returning to the Title Menu.

New World: How to quickly reach the maximum level in woodcutting



New World: How to quickly reach the maximum level in woodcutting

Crafting is very important in New World. Wood is very important here as the material is used in a lot of recipes. We tell you in this article how you can quickly level your logging skills in order to get the necessary raw materials.

Why is wood so important? This resource is used almost everywhere in the game. Regardless of whether you want to forge weapons and make furniture at the workbench or take on missions at the city table: wood, or the more refined versions, are often in demand.

What types of wood exist in New World? At the moment there are 4 different tree species growing all over Aeternum. However, in order to be able to cut down the rarer trees, your lumberjack level must be high enough. In the following overview, you will find all the details about the different types of wood.

  • Fresh wood – degradable from “young trees”
    • Collectible from Lumberjack level 0
  • Aged Wood – Degradable from “Adult Trees”
    • Collectible from Lumberjack level 50
  • Wyrdwood – Degradable from “wyrdwood” trees
    • Collectible from lumberjack level 100
  • Tropical wood – Degradable from “tropical wood” trees
    • Collectible from Lumberjack level 175

Raise the level faster with the right tools

Are the tools that important? Yes, they are. The higher the quality of your tools, the faster you can cut trees. And the faster you can cut trees, the faster you gain experience per tree. Whenever possible, try to make or buy better tools.

Which lumberjack axes are the best? In this overview you will find the individual axes with their values ​​and when you can unlock them with your character level. We also list the recommended passive benefits.

  • Lumberjack ax – iron
    • Can be used from character level 5 – 1 passive possible.
    • “Lumberjack discipline” – More experience in logging.
  • Lumberjack ax – steel
    • Can be used from character level 17 – 2 passives possible.
    • “Lumberjack discipline” – More experience in logging.
    • “Lumberjack Yield” – Logging gains more raw materials.
  • Lumberjack ax – star metal
    • Can be used from character level 36 – 3 passives possible.
    • “Lumberjack discipline” – More experience in logging.
    • “Lumberjack Yield” – Logging gains more raw materials.
    • “Azoth Extraction” or “Lumberjack Luck” – The former gives you a chance to get Azoth after collecting, the other an increased chance of rare materials while you are chopping trees.
  • Lumberjack Ax – Orichalcum
    • Can be used from character level 52 – 3 passives possible.
    • “Lumberjack Yield” – Logging gains more raw materials.
    • “Azoth Extraction” – Chance of Azoth
    • “Lumberjack luck” – a chance for rare materials

Use this method to quickly level up Woodcutting

Increasing the woodcutting level is divided into different level zones.

  • From level 1 – 50:
    • Equip your axe and start chopping “Young Trees”.
    • In all starting areas, there are trees just outside the gates of the settlement.
    • If you are overloaded, run back and throw the wood into your camp or if you are in a particular hurry to level, just throw it on the ground and keep chopping.
  • From level 50 – 100:
    • Here you have to cut down as many “Mature Trees” as possible.
    • These give far more experience than “young trees”.
    • And here, too, the best places are right at the gates of the settlements. The denser the forest, the more “Mature Trees” you will find.
  • From level 100 – 175:
    • Now you can chop “Wyrmwood” trees, they light up light blue and give you a lot of experience.
    • As well as the trees, you can now also kill dryad wolves to mine wood. You can recognize the wolves by the light green cloud of poison that surrounds them.
    • We recommend that you mainly farm the dryad wolves, as they give you a lot of experience and are much faster to mine than the “wyrmwood” trees.
  • From level 175 – 200
    • Now you can mine everything and don’t really need to bother maximizing your woodcutting.
    • However, if you still want to go to 200, it is best to collect “tropical wood”.
    • Or keep chopping dryad wolves, as they are just as effective in terms of experience.

Further advantages that make leveling easier for you

Extra constitution brings bonuses: The more points you have sunk in the constitution in the attribute window, the more advantages you get when you cut trees.

  • 50 points or more = + 10% more logging speed
  • 200 points or more = another + 10% more speed when logging
  • 250 points or more = 10% more income from logging
  • 300 points or more = 25% chance of cutting down a tree in one fell swoop

Area call also plays a role. With the area call card “Collect” you can fell trees even faster and that in turn means you gain experience more quickly. If you mainly chop wood in an area, you can use this buff.

New World: How to get faction tokens quickly and why you need them



New World: How to get faction tokens quickly and why you need them

In New World, there are 3 factions that fight for the dominance of the island. Each of them has its own faction shop where you can spend faction tokens. In this article, we will show you why it is worth collecting the tokens and, above all, where you can get them the fastest.

Which factions are in the game? At the moment (as of October 20, 2021) there are 3 factions that you can join. Each faction has its own representative color.

Why are brands so important? Each faction has a shop where you can exchange your faction tokens for strong equipment or materials. With level 60 you have full access to important things:

  • Rune of Holding
    • You can use these runes to make bags or storage boxes. In the course of the game you need more and more storage space , which is why these runes are also in demand later in the game.
  • Chisel
    • Every dungeon needs a key and to craft this you need the appropriate chisel from the faction dealer.
  • Equipment + weapons
    • Especially the level 60 equipment costs tons of faction tokens, but they are very strong. Until you completely stock up on legendary weapons and armor, you can wear them without hesitation.

How can I collect faction tokens? To collect tokens, you must complete faction missions. In every city, there is a representative of the 3 factions, where you can take on a variety of missions. However, there are two types:

  • PvE missions – safe but slow
    • Missions are scattered all over the area.
  • Advantage: You are undisturbed and safe on the road. Even if you pass out, you do not lose progress.
  • Disadvantage: fewer brands. Sometimes you lose a lot of time because you have to walk across the map to the mission location.
  • PvP Missions – High-Risk High Reward
    • Always the same missions. The 2 missions “Demonstration of Power” and “Infiltration” are almost identical for each faction, except for minimal differences. “Sabotage” is completely different – in one faction, for example, you have to chop wood, in the other, you have to hunt pigs. However, the effort is not particularly great.
  • Advantage: Tons of brands in a short time + always the same missions so that you know the places by heart.
  • Disadvantage: Potential danger of meeting players from other factions who prevent you from progressing. If you pass out (also from monsters), you also lose all progress and have to start over.

Collect tokens quickly with PvP in these areas

Tips & tricks before you start. The PvP missions give you a lot of tokens in a short time, but also bring dangers with them. So before you set out, we’ll give you some pointers along the way so that your chances of survival are increased.

  • Find a group – the more, the better, because together you are stronger
  • Use mobility weapons like a fire stick or hatchet, because sometimes running away is a good option
  • Pack potions and food so that you can use them in an emergency.
  • If you are not looking for a fight, lie down behind the bushes so that you will not be seen and you can wait until the danger is over.

These are the places where you can get the most faction tokens per minute: I ran around all areas for a full day, spamming faction missions and measuring the time.

  • Brackish water – 610 faction marks per minute
    • Duration ~ 9 min = 5510 faction tokens
    • Advantage: The best area in terms of price-performance ratio.
    • Disadvantage: The monsters/animals that you have to kill there are level 62+ and can especially heat up players below level 60.
  • Uniformity – 486 faction marks per minute
    • Duration ~ 9 min = 4377 faction tokens
    • Advantage: Although not as rewarding as brackish water, the paths are more manageable, so that you don’t have to stay active and focused to get to the mission area. Bit more pleasant
    • Disadvantage: Here, too, the monsters can grab very nasty things. For players below level 58 – do not overtax yourself.
  • Deep Gorge (East Brand Outpost) – 406 faction tokens per minute
    • Duration ~ 4.5 min = 2103 faction tokens
    • Advantage: Extremely short way to the mission area. Quickly done the missions
    • Disadvantage: Gives fewer faction tokens compared to other areas. In addition, the faction missions have a 5-minute cooldown, and that slows you down a bit.
  • Choppy coast – 391 faction tokens per minute
    • Duration ~ 10 minutes = 3911 brands
    • Pro: One of the most pleasant places to collect tokens. 95% of the time you just walk around and there are almost no obstacles here. I often do something else on the side while spamming PvP missions here.
    • Disadvantage: Unfortunately, the time-performance ratio is not quite as good as the previous options
  • Bruchberg – 502 faction tokens per minute (broken)
    • At the moment (as of October 22, 2021) unfortunately bugged – as soon as this is fixed we will update this article

Collect even more faction tokens with area reputation. In the area where you often collect tokens, you can choose the area buff for more faction tokens. That gives again a lot of bonus on top of that.
