New World – How to earn Gold

Money or Gold is one of the most important resources in New World as it’s going to allow you to buy things like new gear, upgrades, and lots of other things too. Today I am going to get into how to earn gold, plus a few tips and tricks too so you’ll have your pocket overflowing with gold.

There are few ways to get Gold in New World, so let’s go over them one by one.


When you complete missions and quests, which you can pick up in your Settlement, you’ll get gold. This can range from Faction Quests, Town Projects, and also Side Quests too. Although you can get gold from quests, it’s not going to be the most efficient way to get gold, as some of the quests can be very time-consuming.

Selling Gear

As you go off on your adventures around New World you are going to acquire plenty of loot. This can be rewarded from quests, or when you kill enemies or animals you’ll notice they drop loot. You’ll eventually want to replace your gear with the better loot you pick up, so you can sell loot you no longer need. This isn’t going to be very efficient when you are lower level, but as you progress higher up through the ranks and get better gear then this is going to be a good method of getting gold.

Gathering Resources

New World is full of resources like wood, stone, steel, and other materials too. You can collect these materials and sell them for a nice profit. If you are overflowing with resources then you can make a good amount of gold, however, it’s worth bearing in mind that farming materials and gathering resources are going to take time too. The demand is going to be big for materials and resources as players always need them for leveling up their items.

There’s a couple of strategies you can focus on:

Gathering rare resources – Rare resources are going to be sold on for a higher profit due to the rarity of the item. The only drawback with this method is you have to level up your character to get access to rare resources.

Gathering low and mid-level items – Weapons, armor, tools, you can gather these low and mid-level items and then sell them on for profit. However, due to the plentiful nature of these items, they are going to command a lower price.

The key to making plenty of gold in New World is checking out the gathering nodes and seeing what resources are in demand on your server and then going after that resource.

At the start of MMOs, the economy of the game hasn’t settled, in the early days and weeks, the economy will be all over the place. Key an eye on the markets and try to take opportunities when you see them.


At the start of the game, this is one of the hardest ways to make gold as it’s going to take some time to level up your crafting abilities to the level where it’s worth crafting to make gold. However, keep going because the higher your skill level the better quality items you can craft, which in turn make more gold.

If you can get in there from the start, and focus level your character on one niche of crafting, then it could be possible to sell your items for a very high price. With the game coming out in a few weeks, it would be worth researching which items you can craft and see what grabs your attention. Once again, pay attention to the markets and watch the value. It’s also worth reaching out to other players who want to craft similar items, you might be able to help each other out.
