New World Logging Guide

Logging is Gathering skill primarily used to obtain Wood materials used in a variety of applications in Crafting and Refining skills. Wood can be used for crafting WeaponsArmorFurniture and can also be used as a resource for Town Projects. Higher-level loggers can unlock the ability to track certain tree types and also obtain rare resources from logging such as Sap.

Logging is performed by finding trees across Aeternum and using a Logging Axe to cut them down and collect the wood. Just as with any trade skill, Logging can be leveled up by continually using the skill. Logging is very straightforward and easy to level up as any area has an abundance of trees. Moreover, standard Wood can be obtained from a number of node types including tree stumps and withered trees. There are trees and wood types that only exist in certain areas but in general, standard trees can be found everywhere.

  • Leveling up in a Gathering skill unlocks the ability to gather a wider variety of resources including higher-level ones.
  • Additionally, unlocks the ability to detect nearby resources, as well as special resources used to modify items created by Crafting skills.

Logging Tools

Logging requires the use of a Logging Axe which can be crafted via Engineering. There are several tiers of Logging Axes available, each with an Engineering level requirement and a Forge tier requirement corresponding to the Logging Axe's tier in order to craft. Utilizing higher-tier Logging Axes will speed up logging but is not required in order to cut down higher-tier trees. When crafting logging axes, a Logger's Charm can be included in the crafting process for a chance to imbue the tool with the Logger's Luck Perk which provides a small boost to the chance of obtaining Rare Resources when logging. Logging Axes must be in the player's inventory in order to perform the Logging skill.
