New World is Amazon’s new popular MMORPG, which has been flying on Steam since its September 28 release. Players are now exploring everything Aeternum has to offer, and there is a plethora of content for them to dive into, with things such as crafting, fishing, and levelling being some of the key components.
Once you reach a particular level in New World, you will be able to obtain weapons or armour with an open gem slot. However, if you don’t know how to obtain one of the New World’s gems, they can be somewhat perplexing at first.
Gems are a feature that you’ll most likely become aware of as you go through the stages. They are extremely vital after you’ve gotten some high-level gear, and we’ll go over all you need to know about New World’s jewels.
What are gems used for in New World ?
Gems are simply changes and boosts that you can apply to specific things in New World. Most of the time, these weapons/armor will be blue in rarity, hence you’ll mostly find these gem slots around level 22.
If a piece of gear has a gem slot, it will be indicated by a circle immediately next to the item’s logo. If the slot is unoccupied, you can attach a gem to this piece, assuming the two are compatible.
Where to find New World Gems
If you want to give your gear a boost, you’ll want to collect some of these gems and build some wicked ones to employ.
Before they may equip their weapon with the raw gemstone material, they must first locate it. These can be found through mining minerals, and it’s a little of luck, but you might be able to accumulate some over time.
In addition, players can go into their city’s Trading Post to buy some raw gemstones, although they’ll normally be running a good amount of gold.
Once you have some of these gems in your inventory, you should go to the Stonecutting table. Once here, choose the gemstone you want to make and gather the ingredients you’ll need to make it.
Another thing to keep in mind when making these gems is that you’ll also need certain things known as “motes,” which you may collect by harvesting unique plants across Aeternum.
