In this guide, we’ll look at how to use Harvesting Skill Line in New World to earn tons of gold while leveling up your Harvesting skills.
We will compare the results using three different methods and provide you with the market prices for all items on my server. Therefore, you can decide which method is most profitable for your server based on the price.
Before we get into the first method, a quick disclaimer. I use a full set of Harvesting Equipment with 700 gear score, a very good Sickle, top level Harvesting Trophy, Powerful Proficiency Boost, and 350 Intelligence to complete all these methods. And I also have a PVP Flag to really maximize my New World Coins earnings.
While grinding, you can even get the most lucrative Music Buffs and top-tier packs on your sickle if you want to take your character to another level on the fly.
Let’s take a quick look at the current prices of all the different Fibers and Threads on my server Maramma. This way you can see how they compare to your server.
As you can see, they are all reasonably priced, but Silk Thread is clearly the most expensive. I’ll provide a different approach in case this isn’t the case with your server. Without further ado, let’s get started!
Method 1: Hemp Farm
But now let's get into the first method, which is farming Hemp. This is a very simple method that can be done in many places.
But the reason I would love to redo this area of Windsward is because I really like the aesthetic of this area. There is also a Fast Travel Point here. You can collect a lot of Hemp as quickly as possible, and eventually accumulate a lot of New World Coins.
Feel free to search New World map for a location that suits you. You need to make sure there are enough eggs laid and you never run out of pickings.
You can even look for locations with lots of other resources to get the various items found on locations like Restless Shore. Even though there are usually more people here, you should still get excellent results running back and forth here.
Once you’ve chosen your location, feel free to use any of the previously mentioned items. Then throw your gear together to pop Powerful Proficiency Boost.
I like to use a Fire Staff and a Great Axe or Rapier when doing this to speed up my running between plants, and using a Sickle can really help speed up collecting those gains.
Let’s see what we can expect from an hour of sanding this area.
I ran Windsward for 30 minutes and went to Trading Post and sold everything, leaving me with 2,223 gold. Most of it came from Fiber, which ultimately brought 1,850 gold coins.
This means that if I multiply that by 2, you can expect to earn approximately 4,447 gold per hour through this method, not to mention your Aptitude Crates.
Currently, each Fiber is worth 25 gold on my server. So compare the prices, maybe it will be more profitable on your server.
Method 2: AFK
Next, we have the second method, which is AFK.
This method is useful when you want to get some extra gold, but don’t want to constantly run around the game testing.
I use this brilliant method with Cutlass Keys Map. You can use it here as well, or just look for any area on New World map that has a large amount of the resource you want to target.
So, for example, if Silk Thread is top-priced on your server, look for a place that has a few Silk Thread spawns in an area, and then surround it with some other nice resources as a bonus.
The great thing about this place is that it not only has Silk Thread and Wirefiber but also Spinfiber and even some Wyrdwood Tree and Runewood Tree. There were a few Hemp plants nearby, but I jumped over them during the grind to minimize running around.
Now let’s look at everything I got from sitting in this place for 30 minutes, jumping into the game every 10 minutes or so.
When I sold these on Trading Post, I made 2,430 gold. This is surprising for the effort I put in. This means if I multiply this number by 2, you can expect to earn 4,860 gold per hour.
It’s great to do this AFK method because you can make more money than Hemp farming method and it takes a lot less effort.
During this time, I also acquired many Aptitude Crates, which can further increase my profits. Don’t forget that you have to check the prices on the server before starting.
This is a very reliable location for a server as populous as Maramma. But if too many people use this location later, you can simply look for another location on New World map with a similar amount of resources. There are many places as good as this.
Method 3: Multi-Task
Finally, we have method three: Multi-Task. For this one, we just tested against the most commonly used materials on the server. I chose Silk Thread because it had the highest price.
Then, you need to find a place not too far from Fast Travel Point, where there are many resources you want. I use this small area in Weaver’s Fen Map because there are a lot of spawn points there, and it doesn’t take long to grab them.
All I did was teleport to Fast Travel Point and hit all the spawns, including any Wirefibers. Then teleport out and continue doing what I was doing in New World. Then I’ll come back in 10 to 15 minutes and repeat the process.
Now, to test these numbers, I took a quick look, and it took about 6 minutes to go through and collect everything in the area before teleporting out.
But for testing, I didn’t get any Fibers, nor did I get a lot of resources. It is indeed selling for 651 gold coins on Trading Post.
But given the 15 minute wait, let’s say you can do this 3 times per hour. This means you can harvest 1,953 gold per hour, with a harvest time of approximately 18 minutes. That’s not bad, especially if you do a lot of other things on the side, and you’ll also get some Aptitude Crates to boost profits.
If you want to really focus on Gathering, you can turn it into a route. If done well, you can cycle this route repeatedly.
After running here for 30 minutes straight, I sold everything in Trading Post and earned 2,256 gold. If multiplied by 2, that means you can get around 4512 gold per hour here. Of course, you can make more or less if the prices on your server are different.
Overall, the amount of gold that can be earned is pretty impressive since it’s so easy to do, and adding Aptitude Crates will only increase your earnings.
This guide covers three ways you can craft gold in New World with Harvesting Skill. I will list the benefits of three different methods so that you can get an overview of them all and choose the one that suits you best. Let me know which method is most profitable for your server. Good luck!
