Character Creation for New World is a mechanic of the game where players are given the freedom to shape and construct their desired character. New World doesn't have a class system and will heavily depend on the build that you create where you specialize your character in a certain skill, attribute, or feat, weapon mastery, and an endless tradeskill progression system that will better fit your playstyle. On this page, relevant information regarding character creation will be featured.
