New World Logging

You're going to find yourself chopping wood, a lot. This is why we've put together a New World Logging Luck Guide that will help you find more rare woods.

What is New World Logging Luck?

Logging luck in New World increases your chance to get rare drops when you log different kinds of trees around Aeternum. As long as your logging skill is high enough for each type of tree, you can log it for the base resource, such as Aged Wood or Iron Wood. However, there are more rare types of wood and items you can obtain from certain trees, like Petrified Wood and Whisperwood in Young and Mature Trees. In order to get these, you'll want to raise your Logging luck.

What Does Logging Luck do?

Logging luck increases the chances you'll get a special drop outside of the standard woods that you'll obtain from trees. Here's what you can log in New World (rare items bolded):

  • Young Tree (Level 0): Green Wood, Sap, Petrified Wood, Whisperwood
  • Mature Tree (Level 50): Aged Wood, Sap, Petrified Wood, Whisperwood
  • Wyrdwood Tree (Level 100): Wyrdwood, Sap, Ebonwood, Quillbark
  • Ironwood Tree (Level 175): Ironwood, Sap, Wildwood, Barbvine

If you want to Log Petrified Wood, Whisperwood, Ebonwood,Quillbark, Wildwood, or Barbvine, you'll want a higher Logging Luck score in order to be able to find it more frequently.

How do I raise my New World Logging Luck?

There are two ways to increase your logging luck - craft axes with the logging luck Perk, or by eating food that increases your logging luck for a period of time.

New World Logging Luck - How to improve my luck by crafting?

Early on, Engineering level 0 is required to craft an Iron Logging Axe, which gives a single Perk Slot. If you have a Starmetal Lumberjack's Charm, you can quickly add logging luck to the axe, or you can roll the dice and spend 15 Azoth to attempt to get a logging luck perk. As you grow your engineering skills, you'll be able to craft better axes with more slots for perks.

How to Get Starmetal Lumberjack's Charms

Starmetal Lumberjack's Charms can't be crafted, they have to be found in the myriad number of chests found across Aeternum. Your best bet, early on, is to purchase them from the Trading Post in one of the cities. For the best deal, should you choose to do so, be sure to sort by price from Lowest to Highest!
