The Logging Axe 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 Logging Axe and all related information including the different types of Logging Axes, how to craft them, as well as any bonuses they confer.
Logging Axe Information
The Logging Axe is used along with the Logging skill primarily to chop down trees and collect Wood. Wood is used in a variety of Crafting and Refining skill applications such as turning them into usable Wood materials which can in turn be crafted into Weapons, Armor, Furniture and many other items and equipment. Logging Axes also allow for the gathering of rare resources such as Whisperwood.
Just as with any Equipment, Logging Axes come in Tiers. Using higher-tier Logging Axes 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 Logging skill, not the quality of your Logging Axe. Better Logging Axes 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.
Logging Axes 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.
