  1. Thrust Master Build (PVP) Thrustmaster Build Idea Make a balanced build with a lot of damage, control and sustain Focused on open World PvP but also great damage and give everyone 30% more damage in dungeons Use bow and spear for both closed and ranged combat Talent choices - Spear Zoner Abilitys: Sweep - deal 75% weapon damage and knocking down the target - the only ability we pick up in the Zoner tree and gives us a reliable knockdown ability that is very important for the main combo of this build Tenacious Sweep - you have grit during sweep - we make Sweep uninterruptible by giving it grit Zoner Passives: Row 1: Deadly Reach - first tier is giving us 10% critical chance on attacks that are 3+ meters away - We want as much crit chance as possible and the other choice is not super great we aren't spamming heavy attacks in PvP Row 2: Refreshing Reach - 15% CDR on succesful heavy attack - We are picking up more CDR later Evasive Maneuvers - 20% reduced cost of defensive rolls after hits - Great to have to maximize our dodge potential! Row 3: Merciless Strength - 25% damage against knockdowned targets - This pairs nicely with our uninterruptible Sweep for some sweet combo Invigorating Crits - 20 stamina recovery on crit - this one is insane paired with our build which aims to stack up as much crit as possible. Row 4: Defensive Stance - Damage reduction of 15%, but for a short 2 second duration - It's alright and works well when weaving in some heavy attacks Impaler Abilitys: Perforate - deals a quick 3 strikes of 70% weapon damage as well as applies rend to the target which increases our damage with 5% per stack (15%) Rupturing Strikes - double the effectiveness of the rend stacks if the enemy has 50% or more health left when hit (30%) Impactful Strikes - stagger the target if you hit all three strikes - we are always using Perforate after Sweep, therefore we should always hit three strikes which would apply a 15% rend debuff and stagger. Vault Kick - deal 75% weapon damage and stun your target for 1.5 seconds - this ability is amazing and is used third in our combo to get a head start on gaining some distance while swapping to the bow Relentless Blows - if you hit someone with 50% health or less gain 20% damage buff for 5 seconds - overall more damage nice! Continuous Motion - 30% CDR on hit with vault kick - not much to say other then this CRD is gonna get us to pop off! Impaler Passives: Row 1: Refreshing Jabs - 10% CDR on the second hit of a light attack - more CDR is always nice to have Row 2: Finishing Blows - 15% damage against targets with 30% or less health - finishing the job is just easier with some extra damage Row 4: Aggressive Maneuvers - 20% CDR on any hit after dodge rolling - amazing passive coupled with our stamina regen from Invigorating Crits we are going to be dodge rolling all the time Row 5: Exposed Wounds - 15% critical chance against targets with bleed - we get a bleed passive on our bow called Keenly Jagged which makes us apply a bleed for 10 sec on critical Row 6: Exploited Weakness - 10% dmg per debuff on the target (Max 30%) - this will be up for the full 30% most of the time and is just great overall dmg increase. Talent choices - Bow Hunter abilities: Penetrating Shoot - deals 150% weapon damage and passes through targets for up to 100m - a fast shot dealing good damage and is easier to hit with then a normal attack, almost useless to try to pass through enemies tho Blood Soaked Arrow - useless ability we just wanna get the last point. Deep Strike - 20% MORE damage to targets 20m+ away - MORE damage! Hunter Passives: Row 1: Long Range - 20 % MORE damage to targets 10m+ away - MORE damage! Aim True - 30% MORE damage to heavy attacks and faster arrows - MORE damage! Row 2: Finishing Shot - 20% MORE damage to enemies under 50% health - MORE damage! Row 3: Opening Strike - 20% damage to heavy attacks to enemies with 100% health - INCREASED damage! Row 4: Surprise Attack - 20% extra damage if you have not attacked in the last 10 sec - EXTRA damage! Row 5: Bullseye - 10% pure critical chance - what a way to round this insane damage tree out Skirmisher Abilitys: Evade Shot - leap back 5 meters and shot an arrow dealing 125% of your weapon damage - great distancing tool which deals a decent amount of damage if you manage to hit it! Evasive Knockback - evade shot knocks back the target 2 meters - even better distancing of 7 meters now! "Optional " Go the Distance - evade shot grants 15% movement for 5 seconds - this point is optional Poison Shot - shot an arrow that creates a poison cloud 3 meters wide and applies a poison debuff to enemies dealing a total of 200% weapon damage over 20 sec - great overall for putting up more debuffs on your target which has a synergy with Exploited Weakness from the spear talent tree as well as a nice way of putting on some extra chip damage on to the enemy. Infected Arrows - increase the poison damage to 220% over 20 sec "Optional" If you didn't pick up "Go the Distance" on Evade Shot - you pick up Direct Hit - which increases damage with a direct hit with 200% more damage with poison shot.. Skirmisher Passives: Row 1: Evasive Tactics - 20 % more damage for 5 sec after a dodge roll - this will come in handy as we are maximizing our bonuses on the rolls! Row 3: Dodge and Weave - 10% movement speed for 2 sec after a dodge roll - great for creating more distance Row 4: Archers Speed - 10% movement speed for 5 sec after weapon swap to bow - this comes in very handy since we are always weapon swapping to animation cancel when we dodge roll anyway Row 5: Mark - 10% more damage to enemies with 1 active debuff - this is gonna be up all the time Play-style Is the enemy far away? Open up with a Heavy Attack from the bow --> burst the enemy with Penetrating Shot -> poison the enemy with Toxic Shot --> (Weave in potential light or heavy attack) --> Begin the rotation below when the enemy is close Reasoning: Always open up with a heavy attack because of the passive Opening Strike which grants heavy attacks 20% damage to targets with 100% health , follow this up with some more burst with Penetrating Shot to get its CD started and to be sure you get the bonus damage from having the enemy more then 20 meters away, after that apply the poison with Toxic Shot either to create distance in front of you or to directly burst the enemy with that extra 200% damage on Direct Hits. Continue your melee rotation with the spear when the enemy is closer . Is the enemy close? Open up with a Sweep --> followed by a quick Perforate --> followed by a Vault Kick --> (Swap to bow) --> create distance with Evasive Shot --> poison the enemy with Toxic Shot --> burst the enemy with Penetrating Shot Reasoning: Sweep knocks down the enemy, which activates Merciless Strength giving us 25% increased damage with our Perforate, since the target is knocked down it will not be a problem to hit all three attacks and apply 3 stacks of rend and increase damage with 15% and also stagger the enemy, making it easier for us to hit the Vault Kick, after this you would most likely want to create some distance with Evasive Shot and as soon as possible apply the poison damage to put pressure on an already hurt enemy, put some more damage on them with Penetrating Shot. After this point act according to the situation, swap to spear when the enemy is close and perform the same combo again until dead. Pros and Cons Pros Fun to play and satisfying combos Great outplay potential with high skill cap 1v1 god with annoying cc and escape mechanics Always needed in dungeon groups with your essentially permanent 30% damage increase from the rend stacks on Perforate Uses Medium weight class for more increased survival and one extra dodge Cons You have to aim to hit your shots with the bow FAQ What to do if i don't have a bleed enchant on weapon? - Tip replace Exposed Wounds with Precise Jabs for 5% critical on Light Attacks Where to put my attribute points? - You should put 300 points into Dex and put the rest of your points in to constitution. What gear to use? - The gear selection is not final, but it is something you should strive for. When not having legendaries, you should aim for Dex main stat and other useful enchants that boosts our damage / survivability. Is it fun to play? - I had so much fun with this build on the beta and I'm going to play it on release! Why Deadly Reach? - According to information the spear has a 4 meter attack reach, so you have a 1 meter leeway for the 10% critical What order to pick the talents? Spear: Deadly Reach, Sweap, Refreshing Jabs, Perforate, Merciless Strength, Vault Kick, Rupturing Strikes, Inpactful Strikes, Rentless Blows, Continuous Motion, fill rest as you like. Bow: Evade Shot, Evasive Knockback, Poison Shot, Evasive Tactics, Dodge and Weave and Archer's Speed (Either go Penetrating Shot now or fill out some damage passives in the hunter tree like Aim True for Heavy Attacks and Long Range, Finishing Shot and Opening Strike.) Light Armor vs Medium Armor - You can definitely play this build with light armor if you want, it can improve your speed while leveling but it will also make you easier to kill if you manage to get yourself in a bad situation. Medium armor is recommended as a balance between the movement, control and survivability. Dodge Animation Cancel Tech Tip - Bind your "swap current weapon" to what ever key you want ( i use X for this) - Every time you dodge, click to swap current weapon, this will cancel the movement delay at the end of the dodge and will give you more speed then a regular roll. Since we are swapping weapons between the bow and the spear all the time you will also be granted with movement speed from the passive Archer's Speed which gives 10% extra haste for 5s along with 10% haste from Dodge and Weave. Have fun outrunning everyone! *Optional* Rapid Shot - You could swap out Penetrating Shoot for Rapid Shot if you are mostly doing PvE. It gains a lot of value here especially while levling and is great with the passive Rapid Accuracy when you can reliably hit all three shots. It can still be used for PvP aswell, but i prefer Penetrating Shot for this, since you have to hit atleast 2 of the arrows on Rapid Shot to make it worth it and its not as easy to do. If you choose this option, just replace the passives from Penetration Shot with the passives in Rapid Shot.
  2. HATCHET SKILLS GREAT AXE SKILLS The Axe man is all about damage This build is great for expeditions and general PvE great for both Solo and Team play The core of this build is to be behind an enemy, and to crit them, or in solo go berserk and out DPS even level 60 enemies This is where the great axe comes into it's own, if you are in a party with a tank, make sure they take agro this will let you stand behind an enemy and get those sweet auto critical hits, the passives: Critical Gains Keen Edge and Greed Will not only boost your crit damage through the roof, but heal you from every hit, this is a very good way to stay alive as it is a constant stream of healing While you will be able to at later levels be able to critically hit for upwards of 10,000 damage! (a lot) using the combo of Execute + Executioner Death's Embrace a tier V Emerald gem in your axe An emerald gem gives you extra damage to enemies under 30% health, coupled with the auto crit from Executioner, the extra damage from both Execute and Deaths Embrace when under 50%, you are going to want to save this attack until the very end! with a 25 second cool down you can use it once when a boss hits 50% health then switch to hatchet, then switch back when the boss reaches under 30% for those sweet sweet big numbers ♥ The 1 v All me Berserk With the loss of enemy stagger (gone but not forgotten), PvE has become a lot harder, but blocking is annoying, you can no longer cancel attacks into a block, and have those awkward moments while you sit there blocking waiting for the enemy to attack so they don't interrupt your attack combo.... But no longer! With the passives: Uninterruptible Berserk Accumulated Power Fortifying Strikes You can now be the face tank you've always wanted to be! While in a berserk rage you cannot be staggered or interrupted and hitting the same target will mean you deal more damage and take less, yes it may sound simple and unga boonga just left click 5head, but the hatchet coupled with life stealing that comes with most hatchets and an uncapped damage modifier from Against All Odds means you can sit there and out heal, ((it's not updated on this site yet but berserking refresh has changed to heal you a % every 5 seconds ;)) Armor! (Because you all asked!) You can wear either Heavy or Medium with this depending on your play style! if you want to be a tank go more Con and take Heavy Armor, this will let you tank in Expeditions, and take on higher level mobs solo While I run medium personally this is because I love to DPS, and more dodges keep me out of trouble, while the 10% extra damage works for me really well Tip! you can get medium armor by wearing 4 heavy pieces, and 1 medium, as long as you don't have a shield this should put you in the medium weight range! you can go light for the 20% extra damage, but be careful, because you are a close range fighter, and a lot of mobs have attacks with hit boxes that can hit behind them and wipe you out! Build order! I would recommend to try and get a hatchet first for levelling, and max out the berserk ability first, it will give you more speed, and healing for between combat, then when you're ready for pvp get the Great Axe to level 12, and grab blood lust, this will give you a huge advantage in pvp battles, with a 30% speed buff! Stats I would recommend 300 in strength for the Grit on attacks, then 50 in Dex for the extra crits, then if you are a mad lad 150 in con for the HP to last a life time! ((515 is max stats break down is: 25 base, 190 level, 260 gear, 40 tier V food ♥) After Beta: if you plan to do PvP I would put about 50/50 into strength and con! so aim for a 200/200 looking build! the extra con goes a long long way to being able to trade with your enemies! Now get out there and show me some Axe Action!

  10. New World Launch Details Greetings, Adventurers! Next week on September 28, New World will be launching. The past few years of Alpha testing, preview events, and our recent Beta tests have been critical in helping us prepare for launch, and we couldn’t have done it without your participation, feedback, and enthusiasm. We wanted to put together a primer so you, your friends, and communities can fully prepare for launch and ensure you’re not missing out on any of the exclusive content available. We’ve also included our server names, locations, and recommended languages so you’re ready to hop in the same world as your friends when the gates to Aeternum open next week. Launch Servers New World's launch is a unique moment when Aeternum is an unclaimed land of opportunity, and the ability for you and your Company to organize, progress, and claim your territory is an exciting event as you establish a foothold to defend and develop. We want that initial land rush to feel fair for all our players around the world. We paid close attention during Closed and Open Beta to your feedback on when servers went live. When planning our server launch times, we took fairness and your feedback in mind and have designed a server roll out we hope will support the majority of our players. We took local times into consideration and will launch in the following order: 8AM CEST EU Servers will launch (9/27 at 11pm PT) 8AM BRT South American Servers will launch (9/28 4am PT) 9PM AEST Australian Servers will launch (9/28 4am PT*) 8AM ET NA East Coast Server will launch (9/28 at 5am PT) 8AM PT NA West Coast Servers will launch *To provide the best possible experience at launch, we’ve decided to open our Australian server at a time that aligns with the larger global roll-out. Following the 8AM pattern for Australia would have resulted in it being a different "day" than other regions due to the time difference, and we wanted the region to be able to share in the launch community elsewhere in the world, like streams and website posts. To help clarify the information above please check out this handy map of global launch times:
