New World Update 1.5.2

June 7, 2022

Greetings, Adventurers!

New World Update 1.5.2 downtime will begin at 11PM PT (6AM UTC) on June 7. This weekly update features fixes for Arenas, PvP XP, and more. Find the full list of changes below.

General Updates & Fixes

  • PvP Arenas now award 250, 350, or 500 PvP XP for winning 0, 1, and 2 rounds respectively. The previous amount was 100, 200, or 300 PvP XP.

  • Fixed an issue that caused crafted items with only one possible Gear Score (via materials/skill raising the minimum up to the maximum) to not match their proper value.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the First Light Faction Control Bonus (increased refining yield) to affect non-refining items.

  • Fixed an issue that caused crafting menu button timers to show incorrect values.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the “Flawless Victory” achievement to count towards matches when a member of your team died.

  • Players will now receive less PvP XP and Azoth Salt per capture after capturing 10 Faction Control Points within a 24 hour period. Each capture following your tenth Faction Control Point within that time frame nets 250 PvP XP and 50 Azoth Salt.

  • Fixed a bug that caused certain attacks and abilities to not work properly when your weapon was unsheathed after entering a Game Mode (such as Expedition, Outpost Rush, 3v3 Arena).

  • Fixed an issue that caused Commander Thorpe to not drop Sapphire gypsum in Mutated versions of The Depths.

Thanks for your support! We'll see you in Aeternum.
