Amazon Games recently launched New World and tons of MMO fans flocked to the game to explore the beautiful world of Aeternum. Since then, several players have discovered some issues with New World, including a clear lack of crafting materials.
Several New World fans have already experienced the lack of high-end crafting materials spawning anywhere in the New World, but Reddit user TentraTint has compiled a list of evidence to prove that it is not simply RNG. As in other crafting games, New World's crafting system requires multiple components to create certain pieces of gear with level limits. Many New World players are able to collect some items required for crafting, while others are apparently not in the game at all. High-level New World weapons, such as the Ax of the Abyss and Glacial Rage gauntlets, require crafting materials that several players report are not in-game. TentraTint pointed to three New World forum posts from gamers encountering the same issue, with two specifically reporting their issues to Amazon Games. Although Amazon Games has been alerted to this issue multiple times, New World still appears to be losing crafting materials.
Crafting the New World requires players to level certain skills in order to access high-level craftable weapons and armor. While lower-tier gear can easily be crafted with materials included in New World at the moment, higher-tier players are lacking materials such as Embossed Casing, Enchanted Bowstring, Life Crystal Core, and Crystal Core. of ice. These items are said to drop from creatures level 45 and above, but New World fans who have spent countless hours killing the specific creatures disagree.
A gamer known as Tabbo in New World is one of many who report their issue to Amazon Games, stating that the Broken Ax Artifact and Petrified Fire are easy to find in the game, but that no amount of searching produces a Wrapping in relief. A New World player named NoTouch specified that Fire Crystal Core and Life Crystal Core are easily accessible, but that Ice Crystal Cores are not dropped and cannot be found on the market.
Players report that the lack of crafting materials is a bug, but it may be something that is excluded until a future date or until a new location is revealed. Regardless of what Legendary item New World players are trying to create, they will eventually hit a wall preventing them from creating the item they want. It is currently unclear when Amazon Games will fix this loot table issue now that the developers have been notified.
