Trade Skills in New World are a variety of non-combat skills that the player can invest in and master. They are a core component of Character Progression and help drive the player-centric economy of the game. Trade Skills fall into three categories: Crafting, Gathering and Refining, with each having several skills for the player to devote themselves to. Players can invest in any number of Trade Skills and each will be useful in one aspect or another for both the player and other players they may trade with. There are two secret hidden tradeskills that you have to use in order to mine and harvest resources/enemies that disappear in the world. These two tradeskills are called Sneaky Skinning and Mysterious Mining. These two tradeskills are eastereggs that the developers added so that you could continue to mine/harvest enemies and resources that disappear in the world.
