How does loot actually work in New World? A developer explains it very precisely

In New World, there are different types of damage such as stab, blow, or fire damage. In PvE, different types of monsters also have resistances or susceptibilities to these types of damage. If you want to prepare perfectly for a dungeon or have it easier against a boss, you should definitely know these strengths and weaknesses.

What types of damage are there? New World offers three different types of physical damage and six different types of elemental damage:

  • Cut damage (sword, battle ax, hatchet)
  • Stab damage (rapier, spear, musket, bow, sometimes sword)
  • Slash damage (hammer)
  • Fire damage (fire stick)
  • Ice damage (ice gauntlets)
  • Nature Damage (Life Staff)
  • Lightning damage
  • Arcane damage
  • Calamity damage

Can you have elemental damage on all weapons? Yes, that’s why some types cannot be assigned to a specific weapon. You can use the socket system and the various jewels to convert your weapon damage into fire damage or arcane damage.

This is how effective the various types of damage are

What types of monsters are there? Different types of opponents are waiting for you in New World. These include, for example, the corrupted by the Azoth, the huge natural creatures of the Angry Earth or completely normal animals, here called beasts.

Each of these types of monsters has certain strengths and weaknesses, which affects the damage caused. In table * you can see the respective advantages and disadvantages:
