The Harvesting Sickle in New World is a type of Gathering Tool. Gathering tools are used to collect resources used in various applications. There are a large amount of resources available on Aeternum and each requires a specific Gathering skill and tool to collect. This page focuses on the Harvesting Sickle and all related information including the different types of Harvesting Sickles, how to craft them, as well as any bonuses they confer.


Harvesting Sickle Information

The Harvesting Sickle is used along with the Harvesting skill primarily to harvest and collect Plants and other materials. Plants are used in a variety of Crafting and Refining skill applications such as turning them into usable Cloth which can in turn be crafted into Armor and many other items and equipment. Harvesting Sickles also allow for the gathering of rare resources such as Elemental Motes.

Just as with any Equipment, Harvesting Sickles come in Tiers. Using higher-tier Harvesting Sickles will provide a bonus to your gathering speed and will improve your chances of obtaining rare resources. Note that your ability to gather resources of a higher-tier is tied to your Harvesting skill, not the quality of your Harvesting Sickle. Better Harvesting Sickles simply provide the bonuses mentioned above but in general, it's always better to equip the best Gathering Tools you have available as they also come with other quality of life features such as better Durability and a higher Gear Score.

Harvesting Sickles can also have one or more Perks attached to them. Perks on Gathering Tools are specific to the type of tool and are generally beneficial to the associated Gathering Skill. See the Perks page for a full list of Gathering Perks available.
