New World Patch 1.1 Change Notes (Into the Void)
Into the Void (Patch 1.1) is the first content patch for New World. Below, you will find all of the release notes for this patch.
Welcome to our Patch 1.1 hub. Here, you will find all important changes that went live with the update. Most of the information is taken directly from the official patch notes.
New Weapon: Void Gauntlet
Manipulate the powers of the Void to support your allies and debilitate your enemies with this magical damage/support hybrid weapon. It is the first weapon to scale on both Intelligence and Focus, making it great pairing with the Life Staff and other magical weapons.
Void Gauntlet has two weapon mastery trees, allowing the player to manipulate Void magic in different ways.
- The Annihilation tree focuses on maximizing damage at close-range and revolves around Void Blade, a summoned blade of corrosive void energy.
- The Decay tree offers ranged healing and debuffs and revolves around Orb of Decay, a dual phase projectile that debuffs enemies and heals allies.
New Enemies: The Varangian Knights
The new update introduces the Varangians — a force of invading knights currently raiding Southeastern Aeternum. They are led by Lord Commander Attalus. Commander Attalus and Varangians are vassals to a powerful warlock named Varik Iznov. They have been sent to Southeastern Aeternum in search of magical artifacts and arcane lore left behind by the Crimson Sorcerer.

- Alkahest is crafted by distilling the magical herbs found throughout Aeternum and serves as a reliable and potent base for potions going forward.
Rare Resources from Gathering Nodes

appropriate chance to drop after you reach a certain Trade Skill level.
- This chance can be increased by eating the appropriate Trade Skill when gathering.
- Trade Skill foods also enables the possibility for these to drop before you would ordinarily be able to receive them based on your Trade Skill level alone, albeit at a very rare rate.
Loot and Rewards

- Added a new style of weapons that drop from the Knight enemy type.
- Rook’s Defense Tower Shield now has a tower shield appearance instead of a kite shield appearance.
