New World Jewelcrafting is a Crafting Trade Skill in New World. Jewelcrafting allows for the crafting of Trinkets such as Amulets, Rings and Earrings that provide passive bonuses to player characters. Trade Skills are a variety of non-combat skills that the player can invest in and master. Jewelcrafters can also craft Gems that can be affixed to equipment with sockets. Trade Skills belonging to the Crafting category focus on creating a large variety of items ranging from Weapons and Consumables to ammunition and furniture.
Jewelcrafting is the Crafting skill focused on creating Trinkets by using resources and materials obtained from skills in the Gathering and Refining lines. Tr
nkets are jewelry comprised of amulets, rings and earrings which provide a bonus to a player’s attributes. Trinkets are created using precious metals such as silver and embedded gems which determine the type of bonuses they provide. A higher level in Jewelcrafting will allow players to create better, more powerful trinkets, as well as improving their Gear Score range.
New World Jewelcrafting is performed at an Outfitting Station which can be found in Settlements. Outfitting Stations have a Tier level which can be increased by taking on Town Projects. Note that each trinket has a tier level requirement in order to craft. This tier level corresponds to the Outfitting Station’s tier level. If your settlement’s Outfitting Station level does not meet the requirement, you will need to either raise it or find another settlement with a Outfitting Station of a higher tier. Crafting weapons requires the player to be of the appropriate Jewelcrafting level as well. Leveling up in Jewelcrafting is a straightforward process. Players simply need to continuously craft trinkets raise their level in the skill. Collecting resources, however, is more involved and can prove more difficult.
Jewelcrafting Relies skills
Jewelcrafting is a skill that relies heavily on the following skills for resources and materials and as such, they are strongly recommended companion skills:
Note that materials for any Crafting skill can be obtained from other players as well by trading, so players can still be successful in Jewelcrafting even if they invest in other skills, but this requires playing the game’s economy system.
Jewelcrafting Trinket Perks
While Crafting a trinket, it has a small chance of gaining one or more Perks. While these outcomes are random, there are a number of special materials that can be gathered in the world that, when used during the crafting process, can dictate what Perk is added to the weapon. However, there are still no guarantees that a Perk will indeed be added to the piece of equipment but the chance increases as the Crafting skill level increases.
Check the Perks page for a full list of possible trinket perks and the resources needed to imbue them onto crafted trinkets. Note that Trinkets cannot gain Empty Gem Sockets, unlike Weapons or Armor.
