Finding things to do with your spare time isn’t always easy.
Some people enjoy sports and outdoor activities while others prefer using their computers and consoles; if you fall into the latter category then you may have heard of New World before, an immensely popular game that’s available on Steam.
Getting started on New World is not easy, despite the game’s popularity. Spending time researching and learning how to get started will give you the best chance of achieving in-game success. In this post, you will learn once and for all how to get started playing Steam's most popular MMORPG.
Anybody with experience playing MMORPGs before will know the hardest thing is accumulating and building wealth. Until you have wealth you won’t be able to buy the game’s best weapons and armour sets. Not having good weapons and armour sets can stunt your performance and prevent you from being able to take out opponents in quests and one-on-one fights.
Most MMORPGs strictly forbid purchasing in-game loot with real money; New World is one such game. However, despite the fact buying game loot with money is forbidden it’s something that you can still do.
If you are interested in buying loot then rather than dealing with private players it is a good idea to buy it from a reliable, trusted service. You can learn about these services by conducting extensive online research. Finding one for New World should not be difficult as they are abundant online.
Make sure that you are subtle and do not get caught as detection of buying coins and loot could get your account banned. The game’s administrative board is not sympathetic to individuals caught buying loot so bans often remain permanent.
One of the first things you should focus on doing if you are planning on playing this game is to get weapon experience. Building your character’s weapon experience will make advancing through the game much easier. As you may already know your experience with weapons determines what weapons your character can use.
Being limited to the game’s most basic weapons can prevent you from being able to overcome opponents or other players in quests and contests. You will be pleased to know, however, gaining weapon experience is not especially difficult and can be done quite easily even as a beginner.
One of the most important things you should do as somebody who’s new to the game is to decide which weapon you are going to prioritise using. New World is unique in that the game does not force you to choose specific classes; your character can be whatever you want them to be.
If halfway through the game you decide that you no longer want to play a warrior you can switch to the game’s equivalent of a rogue. However, while you have a lot of freedom in terms of who your character becomes it is a good idea to pick a specific weapon and style of play and stick to it.
As mentioned in the previous paragraph New World does not restrict you to specific classes. However, while you are able to have a lot of freedom in terms of what your character becomes the game will still expect you to pick trades. Trades help you to earn money and resources and build XP.
The more advanced you become at a trade, the more bonuses you will begin extracting from it. A lot of people’s first instinct when playing is to become a warrior and earn money battling enemies but you can earn just as much loot felling trees or mining.
Picking trades is not an especially difficult activity as there are an endless number of guides and tutorials available online documenting each trades’ benefits and advantages.
Before you select a trade you might want to consult these so that you can make the right decision. Do not be fooled into thinking that blindly picking a trade will benefit you; extensive research is needed so you can select one that fits your personality and playing style. Blindly picking trades and not researching them will stunt how much fun you have.
Throughout your time playing the game you will accumulate resources. Many people would go as far as to say that the game’s entire purpose is to accumulate resources. Whether you agree with this or not it is an undeniable and unavoidable fact that as you play your character’s inventory will grow. Certain resources are more valuable and desirable than others.
It is your responsibility as a player to decide which resources you personally need in order to further your character and advance through the game’s myriad levels and quests. Bear in mind that by having resources you can bargain with other players and arrange trade deals.
Trading with other players is easily the best way of getting what you want and building your character’s level up. Make sure that when you are trading you are getting good deals. Avoid making senseless and blind trades simply because you want specific items.
In other words, do not trade valuable things for items that are not equally as valuable unless they will help your character’s development and make the completion of certain quests easier. There are sites and guides you can use to determine how valuable and sought-after specific items are.
Throughout the game, you will come across different players like yourself. Getting to know these people can make the game a lot more fun. While you can easily play New World alone, playing with other people makes it a much more competitive and social experience; some people even form their own guilds. If you want to join a specific guild then reach out to their leader and ask them if you can join.
Most guilds have their own dedicated forums and websites that you can use to learn more about them and even sometimes make applications to join. Bear in mind you are not likely to be accepted when applying for people’s guilds unless as a player you have a lot of experience and know what you are doing.
New World is a popular game and when you consider everything that it has to offer compared to other similar games it is not hard to see why. Make sure that you conduct extensive research before playing so that you can find the character trades and pathways that are right for you; learning about this game is not difficult as there are many articles like this one available online.
