Resources are absolutely essential in New World, contributing dramatically to leveling your character, and creating all-important items needed to progress. Resources are split into three categories – gathering, refining, and crafting with each doing a specific job. Some gathering resources include stone, ore, animal hide, whereas refined resources are ingots, gemstones, leather, and more. However, these aren’t always easy to spot so having the ability to track New World resources is a necessity.
It’s not automatically clear how to track resources in New World due to there being various prerequisites and levels needed. Today, we’ll be teaching you all so that you can go out and gather all the resources you’d like quickly and efficiently.
How to track resources in New World
As previously mentioned, gaining the ability to track resources requires you to level in other areas beforehand. Once done so, you should be able to track resources via the compass at the top of your screen, allowing you to make your way over to them instantly.
