Logging Trade Skill Guide for New World
On this page, you will find our in-depth guide for the Logging Trade Skill in New World where we cover everything from basics to advanced farming tips for rare materials.
Overview of Logging in New World
Logging utilizes the Logging Axe tool to chop wood from Trees around the world, which can be used to level most other professions in the game and greatly increase the power of your character, or be turned into a huge Gold profit.
To begin your logging adventures, simply craft a Logging Axe at any campfire or sanctuary after the initial game introduction; it uses similar materials to the flint sickle that you craft shortly after the introduction (Flint and Greenwood), and then you are ready to chop. Logging works hand in hand with Woodworking, in which you can utilize all the wood you chop and craft it up into Planks that can be used in other professions.
This Trade Skill scales solely with Constitution, so we highly recommended that you focus on obtaining Constitution on both gear and with your Attribute selection, up to 300 for the final perk, if you are aiming to get the most out of your Logging. If you are not a Constitution-based character at the time, you will still be able to get a lot out of Logging, but it will be a slower farm. Below is a list of the perks granted from Constitution that benefit Logging.
- 50 Constitution: +10% Logging speed
- 100 Constitution: -10% reduction on durability loss for tools
- 150 Constitution: -10% Decreased weight of logged items
- 200 Constitution: +10% Logging speed
- 250 Constitution: +10% Yield increased from Logging
- 300 Constitution: 25% Chance to chop down a tree in a single swing
A note about the final 300-Constitution perk is that it currently only applies on the first swing on the tree, you can no longer jump to try and proc this perk again as of patch 1.1.

Best Way to Level Your Logging in New World
Leveling Logging in New World is fairly simple: the higher level required to chop the tree, the more experience you will gain (generally). However, the difference in experience is not that great until the later levels (Wyrdwood and Ironwood), and the speed at which you can gain experience is largely dictated by how fast you are capable of Logging those trees.
However, once you are capable of chopping Wyrdwood (100 Logging), Dryad Wolves give quite a large amount of logging experience (around 800 per wolf) and if you can comfortably farm these, this will be the best way to reach Ironwood (175).
The 300-Constitution perk that allows you to chop a tree in a single swing makes those last Logging levels go extremely fast, as Logging Ironwood in one swing will net you massive experience. Below is a list in order of from least to most experience gained from trees; keep in mind that the size of the tree varies and determines experience gained.
- Young Trees
- Mature Trees
- Wyrdwood Trees
- Dryad Wolves
- Ironwood Trees
Logging Routes in New World
Trees are found everywhere in New World, so for the lower levels just chop where you feel comfortable, generally close to a town so you can run back quickly and refine that wood immediately.
As for the higher end trees, farming any Dryad Wolves is a fantastic place for Wyrdwood. Ironwood is mainly found in the level 51-60 zones but there are some spawns around the others zones too. It can be extremely helpful using a map resource like this one to find the spawn points of everything you may be looking for.
