Arcane Repository

In essence, Arcana is a trade skill that is leveled up using crafting. You can craft anything from potions to weapons that will strengthen your character. These can come in handy when trying to be more potent in combat and have a high Gear Score. You will need to be close to an Arcane Repository to level up Arcana

You will need to focus on a lot of specific grinding, such as logging, mining, fishing, smelting, and harvesting. In essence, some of the necessary items you will need are Water Motes, Coarse Leather, Hyssops, Tanglewisps, steel Ingots, Tier 2 and Tier 3 Plants, and oil. 

To reach the maximum level of 200, you will need to grind a lot, mainly water and many other things, which we will get into. So, sit back, relax, and let’s work our way through how to level your Arcana in New World

New World Arcana LEVEL 1-10

level one to 10
Level 1 Arcana

It can depend from character to character how fast you want to level up your skills. To get started, the first thing that you will require is an Arcane Repository at Tier 2. While it does not cost a lot to level up from 1-10, the total net cost will be 55.76. 

Common Corruption Tincture

The primary item that you will need to craft is the 41 Common Corruption Tincture. It is one of the critical items that players need to get from the ground up and level up higher. 

To make the Common Corruption Tincture, you will need to grind for these three essential items:

  • 41 Rivercress Stem 
  • 41 Water Mote 
  • 41 Water 

Each Rivercress Stem, Water Mote, and Water makes one Common Corruption Tincture. If you are wondering about the cost, the 41 Rivercress Stem will cost 21.73, 41 Water Mote comes out to 31.57, and the 41 Water will cost you 2.46. 

New World Arcana LEVEL 10-50

Pumping things up, once you aim to reach this level, things can get more interesting. There are two routes that you can go in New World.

Common Corruption Tincture 

The first route you can take is this one, where the most important thing you will need is an Arcane Repository at Tier 2. The next thing that you will require is 330 Common Corruption Tinctures, which can quickly run you down 448.80, making things a little bit more expensive. 

To craft the 330 Common Corruption Tinctures, you will require these essential items:

  • 330 Water Mote 
  • 330 Water 

Each essential item will make one Common Corruption Tincture, and the cost of these items will come out to be

  • 254.10 for 330 Water Motes 
  • 19.80 for 330 Water

Common Corrupted Coating 

While you may think that this is the only way to level up your Arcana, it is not. You are in luck, as there is a route 2. For this, you will again require an Arcane Repository at Tier 2, and the overall cost of this will be 478.50, which is a little bit more expensive than route one.

Arcana leveling is a must if you want to be stronger in combat. Making things a little bit harder, to level from 50-100, the first fundamental thing to note is that the Arcane Repository should be at Tier 3, which is more vital than Tier 2. With this, you can go three ways, covering all of them.
