|Lore_Body_Crafting_Overview||Crafting is a major part of New World. Most weapons, armors, tools, and utilities must be crafted by a player. Even players who don't craft items themselves rely on others who do for their equipment.|
The process of crafting an item often involves several steps, some of which require Trade Skills. For steps in the process you don't have the necessary skills for, you'll have to work with another player or check the Trading Post for what you need.
The steps to craft an item are:
1. Gather Raw Resources
2. Refine Materials - Tier 1 recipes can usually skip this step and use the raw resources directly
3. Craft the Item(s)
It is often a good idea to work backwards when trying to make a specific item. Use a Crafting Station to view all of the recipes for that station. Select the type of item you want to make to open the recipe Tiers. Select the Tier of item you wish to make to see its recipe. You can also pin the recipe as an Objective so you can easily keep track of what you need.
