When playing the new MMO New World, you’ll eventually find yourself heading down to Cutlass Keys. While here, you can speak to an NPC by the name of Nekumanesh. Do so will initiate the quest called “Heart of the Marsh”. This guide will show you how to complete the “Heart of the Marsh” Quest in New World.
How to Complete the “Heart of the Marsh” Quest in New World
The quest revolves around finding out what happened to Nekumanesh’s wife, Jocelyn. This part of the quest is pretty straightforward as all you need to do is follow the quest marker that is on your map. The marker will lead you to an area known as Salty Marshes, a wetland area that has some farmhouses and shacks sinking into the ground. When you arrive at the location, your quest objective should update telling you to “Recover Joycelyn’s Diary from Jocelyn Marshjaw” This is the part that most players hit a wall, but it isn’t hard to complete, rather it might just take some time because of a possible bug.
Marshjaw is meant to spawn near the chest found near the waypoint, though many players a reporting an issue that the enemy is not spawning. Even after waiting for upwards of an hour, some people still don’t see her spawn. There isn’t a workaround known as of yet, so to complete this quest requires a little bit of luck. If Jocelyn Marshjaw does spawn, then all you have to do is simply kill her and loot her to find the diary. Return to Nekumanesh to turn in the quest and you will be reward with an Adventurer’s Ring, 1,830 XP, 105 Coins, 250 Standing, and 20 Azoth.
New World is now available on PC through Steam.
