New World – An Amazon Developed MMO – What We Know So Far

The New World MMO site has recently published a detailed character progression of the game. According to the post, the character progression will have three major categories namely Core Attributes, Trade Skills, and Weapon Mastery. In which, Core Attributes will play a large part in your character.

Core Attributes

Similar to most MMO RPG games, the player’s character is defined by its core attributes. In this game, the core attributes is separated on five different core and those are as follow:

  • Strength – Governs your overall power with melee weapons.
  • Dexterity – Governs your effectiveness with ranged weapons.
  • Intelligence – Governs your magical prowess including magical weapons and magical perks.
  • Focus – Governs your recovery rate for mana and skill cooldowns.
  • Constitution – Directly proportional to your character’s overall health.

Trade Skills

As the name suggests, it’s your character’s non-combat skills. Trade skills are made of 16 different sets of governing skills for gathering, refining, and crafting.

Gathering skills are divided among mining, skinning, logging, and harvesting. Refining skills are smelting, stonecutting, woodworking, tanning, and weaving. While Crafting Skills can be subdivided into weaponsmithing, armoring, jewel crafting, engineering, arcana, cooking, and furnishing.

Weapon Mastery

Last but not least is the weapon mastery. Similar to most MMO, it takes experience to master certain weapons and this includes using that specific weapon against enemies. For the New World, the game induced 2 mastery skill trees for the weapons. Each skill tree provides a selection of active abilities, passive modifiers, and bonuses.

Developers will soon release more information about the said game. For now, the Core Attributes, Trading Skills, and Weapon Mastery will define your character’s progression in this game. With this, the game New World ensures hopeful players a diverse gaming style that will be molded by the player’s preference.
