1.

Overview of Stonecutting in New World

Stonecutting is one of the five Refining Trade Skills in New World. Stonecutting involves processing all of the raw gems and stones gathered from the Mining skill and crafting them into cut gems and blocks to be used in the gem sockets in gear and to craft tuning orbs for dungeons, respectively.

Stonecutting is performed at a Stonecutting Table in any settlement. Each Stonecutting Table will have a tier level that varies from town to town and a higher tier level Stonecutting Table will enable you to craft higher tier materials such as Lazarus Tuning Orb Lazarus Tuning Orb, Genesis Tuning Orb Genesis Tuning Orb, Runestone Runestone, and Cut Pristine Onyx Cut Pristine Onyx.

Refining Reagents for Stonecutting

Stonecutting has two refining reagents, Sandpaper for Stone-related materials like Lodestone Brick Lodestone Brick and Solvent which is used for Gem-related materials. These refining reagents are required when trying to craft up your materials, and the higher rank of reagent you use is, the higher chance you have to craft bonus materials.

The three available types of Sandpaper are: Coarse Sandpaper Coarse Sandpaper, Fine Sandpaper Fine Sandpaper, and Obsidian Sandpaper Obsidian Sandpaper. The three available types of Solvent are: Weak Solvent Weak Solvent, Potent Solvent Potent Solvent and Pure Solvent Pure Solvent. Generally, Obsidian Sandpaper and Pure Solvent are the best reagents to use, as they will provide you the highest chance at bonus items and are usually quite cheap.

Levelling Stonecutting in New World

Stonecutting is a fairly simple skill to level up: the most experience you can acquire is from the highest tier materials you can craft, so always craft up for maximum experience.

However, you can take a cheaper route and continue to only craft the lower materials which are extremely useful and can still sell for plenty of gold, as many players would rather just buy those lower level resources than farm them themselves.

Generally, if you purely want to level your Stonecutting as easily as possible, you will focus on crafting up blocks all the way up to 200, as the materials required are easier to find than gems. Below is a basic table for cutting and fusing gems with the list of materials/levels they require. As a note, each type of gem will require a different elemental mote/wisp/essence/quintessence.

Stonecutting for Tuning Orbs

Tuning Orbs are required to enter dungeons and arenas in New World. Stonecutting is the trade skill that creates these Tuning orbs. Many of the materials required to craft a Tuning Orb are Bind on Pickup, which means you cannot trade them and therefore you can only craft Tuning Orbs yourself if your Stonecutting level is high enough, which makes it an extremely important trade skill if you are a player who enjoys dungeons.

Crafting Tuning Orbs requires corrupted materials, which can be gained from completing corrupted events around Aeternum. Below is a table with the materials/level required to create Tuning Orbs with Stonecutting.

Yield-Increasing Gear

Each of the 5 Refining Trade Skills have a gear set that increase the total yield you receive while refining by +2% per item. For Stonecutting, it is the Stonecutter's Gloves, Hat, Pants, Shirt and Shoes. You can generally find these as drops or on the Trading Post, however some pieces can be much rarer than others.
