New World Furnishing Leveling Guide [Level 0-200]

Leveling up furnishing in the new world all the way up to level 200 can be very intimidating for new players but at the same time, furnishing can also be a very fun and rewarding profession as it gives you storage benefits, permanent buffs, and of course! It’ll enable you to personalize your home.

Level 0-50 New World

There are two methods for power leveling your furnishing skill up to level 50.

Method 1

Wicker baskets

Ok, so now you know the basics of furnishing and can’t wait to become a furnishing god. Well, for that you need to start making wicker baskets at least till you’re level 50. To craft wicker baskets, you need a LOT of solvents, a bunch of reeds, and a few fibers. Let’s discuss them in detail one by one.


The solvent is hands down the most important thing when leveling up furnishing. You’re going to need it in an enormous amount. Alternatively, if the solvent is available cheaply on your server, we recommend purchasing it as you will be saving yourself a lot of time, which you can spend gathering resources you can not afford to buy.


The next required resource is reeds. You can get them by harvesting bulrush plants; they can be found near any water source ( mainly lakes and ponds), and as an added bonus, you’ll also be getting a few bulrush cobs and, by luck, a firefly bait. The latter resources can be used for improving your arcana.

You can get these mainly from Weaver’s farm, but if you’re too under-leveled to go there, you can still gather them from water bodies in the area you’re currently in.


Lastly, you need to gather fibers. The most abundant locations are Tress Campos farm on the border of monarch bluffs windsword, and the Sunshade Plains in the Restless Shore.

Combining And Crafting

Now that you’ve gathered all the materials mentioned, you need to find a workshop with a suitable tier level and start crafting wicker baskets.

Method 2

Our second method is very important for new world furnishing leveling as you’ll craft a bright warm iron sconce. For this purpose, you’ll need timber, oil, and an iron ingot. Let’s discuss these further in detail.


Let’s start with timber. You cannot find timber around the world; you have to craft it from greenwood. Where do you find Greenwood? Well, you cut trees, that’s it, and the best place to do so is in the southwest area of Windward’s settlement.


To farm oil, you at least need to be level 20 in the mining skills since oil is extracted from seeping stones. Being level 45 in mining can come in really handy in this case since at this level you’ll be able to track the seeping stones. But if you don’t have that, you can still get by just fine; just look for steaming black spots on the ground (these are the seeping stones).

Iron Ingots

Last but not least, you need iron ingots. Just like timber, you cannot find them directly but have to craft them from iron ores which are mined from iron veins. The best place to mine iron ores that you can find early on is the midnight den in the east of every fall. After mining the ores, just throw them in a smelter found in settlements to get iron ingots.

Crafting And Combining

Now, combine the gathered resources and enjoy the fruits of your hard work by crafting warm iron sconces until you’re level 50.

Level 50-75 New World

For these levels, you need to craft old straw cots. You need linen, feathers, oil, weak solvents, and maple stains to do that. Let’s explore each in detail.


Linen, again has to be crafted from fiber harvested from hemp plants. Although plenty of hemp plants are scattered across all grasslands and forests in the new world, the best place to farm them is Primrose, located west of Windwards.


Next are feathers. Feathers in the new world are really cheap, so we advise you to buy them, but still, if you’re still looking forward to gathering them, you should start killing some turkeys. They can be found fairly easily outside early-game settlements roaming around in forests. But the best place to farm them is windsward just outside the Greenhaven settlements.

Maple Stains

You can buy maple stains at trade posts, but if for some reason they’re too unaffordable to buy at your server, you can always sort to crafting them, as crafting maple stains will also give you experience so there is your little bonus. To craft maple stains, you need oil and weak solvents.

Alternate Option

If the crafting materials for a cot are too expensive on your server, you can try crafting sunny rags as an alternative. Which relies mainly on crossweave and a bunch of other materials.

Level 75-100 New World

At this level, you can craft trophies, although they don’t give you XP right away they do make earning it easier in the future. A good option to consider would be a minor weapon-smithing trophy. You need lumber, iron ingot, obsidian flux, charcoal, maple stain, and fire mote. Let’s discuss each in detail.


Lumber has to be crafted from aged wood, obtainable from mature trees. The mature trees are not as common as young trees but are still fairly easy to find. However, you need a level 50 in woodworking skills to convert aged wood into lumber.

Obsidian Flux

Obsidian flux is one of the rarest crafting resources in the new world. It has to be looted from chests and crates, but you’ll only find it in them if they’re in zones from levels 34 to 56. These include Weaver’s Fen, Great Cleave, and Morning Dale.


You need an axe to get charcoal, and you’re good to go. Just chop some trees up, and once you have enough wood in your inventory, just convert it into charcoal at your nearest settlement.


The last and the most hard-to-get resource is firemote. You can get firemotes in three ways dragonglory plant, salamander snails, and scorch stones. The dragonglory plant found in ebonscale reach, Brightwood, reekwater, windsward, cutlass key, and monarch’s bluff can only be harvested with a sickle.

Level 100-125 New World

Now things will get a little harder for leveling in new world furnishing. But keep your eyes on the prize. From up to level 125, you need to craft oak stains. The materials you need to craft it are potent solvents and oil.

Potent Solvent

Unfortunately, the potent solvent is a hard-to-find resource as it can only be obtained from ancient chests and crates placed in zones from levels 34 to 56, which means that the best places to find it is edengrove, great cleave, ebonscale reach, restless shore, and weaver’s fen. These ancient crates have a 60-minute respawn timer, so keep that in mind during your farming routines and plan them accordingly.

Combining And Crafting

Now you must find a tier 4 workshop, combine the resources, and start crafting oak stain up to level 125.

Level 125-150 New World

You can level up just fine if you keep crafting oak stain up to level 150, but if you’re bored with crafting the same item repeatedly, you can resort to crafting robust wind chimes. You’ll need sand flux, wyrd wood, fiber, iron ore, coarse sandpaper, aged wood, and greenwood.

Since we’ve already covered greenwood, aged wood, iron ore, and fiber above, we’ll focus on coarse sandpaper, wyrd wood, and sand flux.

Coarse Sandpaper

Starting with the coarse sandpaper, you can buy it from trading posts, but it’s most likely gonna be really expensive if you intend to buy it in bulk, so we recommend gathering it. Finding sandpaper is again based totally on luck, as it is found in treasures, stockpiles, coffers, and supply chests. But you can increase your chances of finding it by looking for it in areas above level 20, as the drop rate for sandpaper tends to get lower in villages closer to settlements.


Now, wyrdwood is high-tier lumber, obtained from wyrdwood trees. Do take note that you need a level 100 in logging skills to be actually able to cut them. Although these trees are scattered all across the aeternum, the top two spots for farming them are verdant cavern and lush hideaway in the southeast of Brightwood. You can also try Canopus pol to the east of Weaver’s Fen if you find it hard to get in the previously mentioned areas.

Sand Flux

Just like sand coarse paper, sand flux can be hard to find as it too is found in supply crates and ancient chests located in zones with levels 0-38, meaning you’ll be going to Everfall, monarch’s Bluff, windsward, bright wood, cutlass key, first light, and weaver’s fen. Each of these chests provides you with 8-14 sand flux and has a 60-minute respawn timer, so that’s something to remember when planning your next farming routine.

Combining And Crafting

Now throw the materials together at a workshop with tier level 4 and start furnishing robust wind chimes till you reach level 150 in furnishing.

Level 150-175 New World

For these levels, you need to farm pure solvent, and again, you need to farm oil too, because you’ll be crafting mahogany stain. Let’s focus on pure solvent, as you already know where to find the oil at this point.

Pure Solvent

Finding pure solvent will be hard, not because it’s not easily available but because of the sheer abundance you need it in. It can be found in supply crates, elite chests, and ancient containers placed in high-level zones ( level 56+), so you’ll be going to reekwater, shattered mountain, and ebonscale reach.

Combining And Crafting

Assuming you have found a workshop with tier level 5, combine the oil and pure solvent and furnish mahogany stain till you’re level 175.

Level 175-200 New World 

Ah yes! We bet that you can already feel the sweet smell of victory. The final stretch! One last push and you’ll be a professional furnisher in the new world. There are two ways to go around it.

Method 1

With this method, you’ll be furnishing an oval cerulean rug. As for the resources, you need silk thread, thick hide, tannin, wirefiber, rawhide, crossweave, and fiber. Let’s discuss each in detail.

Silk Thread

Silk thread can be harvested from tall green plants with small lilac flowers called silkweed. Although they are spread throughout the aeternum, the best place to find silkweed is north of Mourningdale. Be warned, as this area is level 40+.

Thick Hide

The thick hide is the advanced version of the normal hide. It is not as easily available as the normal hide which you can skin off of every wolf and boar you kill. It is a random drop from different animals, including alligators, bison, boar, elk, wolf, hound, bobcat, bear, and lynx.


Tannin is another resource based completely on luck. You find it randomly by looting supply crates and ancient chests located in zones with levels 0-38. Stock up on it, you need it.


Next is wirefiber. It is a plant-based resource that you can find scattered throughout the aeternum. The plant resembles the hemp plant with the difference being that it has a red flower on its top. Another mentionable thing is that you can only harvest it with a sickle, so don’t forget to bring one when you hunt for these.


Rawhide is the easiest resource to gather as the animals from which it is skinned are easily available in the starting low-level areas.

These include boars, wildcats, bears, elk, deer, bison and wolves. Although it can be skinned from many mammals in the wild, we recommend skinning it from wolves as they are high in numbers and don’t provide much of a challenge. Your best option to find wolves is a wolf den. Just choose one close to your house so you can easily hunt, rest, rinse, and repeat.


Crossweave can be found in ancient chests and supply crates across the aeternum. The best places to find them are Great Cleave, Eternal Pool in Reekwater, and Genesis of malevolence in Edengrove.

Lastly, we’ve covered the fiber above so scroll up to find it.

Combining And Crafting

Now combine the rawhide and the thick hide and craft layered leather, put all your gathered resources together, find a tier 2 workshop and start furnishing oval cerulean rug.

Method 2

Don’t feel like crafting the rug when it comes to furnishing leveling in the new world? Well, here’s an alternate method to get you to level 200 in furnishing just as fast if not faster than the rug method. With this method, you need to craft powerful incense using the materials ironwood planks, charcoal, hyssop, and cinnamon. Let’s get down to the details.

Ironwood Planks

Firstly, you need to chop ironwood trees to craft ironwood planks. These dark-colored oaks are rare to find in most high-level areas; however, they can be found in abundance in some specific areas. These places include skysong lagoon location in ebonscale reach, the blighted shrine in southern Edengrove, two places In reekwater, and the south of the shattered mountains.


You’ll automatically obtain a hyssop every time you harvest a herb, so it’s not hard to find. You can find plenty of herbs at the beginning of the game, often found in the same places as hemps. They look like lavender with a bluish or purple shade. When farming herbs, try applying a proficiency booster to reduce the amount of time taken to a farm, and trust us, you’ll need a lot of it because you’ll be farming a great deal of these herbs.


Cinnamon can be tricky to find, but it becomes relatively easier once you know its location. To find cinnamon, you’ll again need to start pulling herbs. Since there is no guarantee that you’ll get a cinnamon every time you pull a herb, it can start to get frustrating when every time you pull a herb, you end up with another hyssop. But unfortunately, there is no other way around it, so be patient, and just remember that it is worth it.

Final Crafting And Combining

Now you have all the materials needed to furnish powerful incense. All you need to do at this point is to find a workshop with tier level 5 or higher and of course, put the resources together to actually furnish the powerful incense, like duh.
