Stonecutting Trade Skill Guide for New World
On this page, you will find our in-depth guide for the Stonecutting Trade Skill in New World, where we cover everything including, material costs, how to level your Stonecutting quickly and how to make tuning orbs.
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, , and .
Refining Reagents for Stonecutting
Stonecutting has two refining reagents, Sandpaper for Stone-related materials likeand 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:, , and . The three available types of Solvent are: , and . 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.
