There are three factions that you can choose from in the new MMO New World, those being the Covenant, Marauders, and the Syndicate. These factions play a large role in the social and PvP components of the game, so you are going to want to choose wisely. If you decide to go down the Covenant route, then that means you will gain the ability to go up the ranks and become a Templar. To do this, you will need to complete the “Trial of the Templar” Quest. This guide will show you how to complete the “Trial of the Templar” Quest in New World.
How to Complete the “Trial of the Templar” Quest in New World
The first step is to play through the main story quest until you complete the mission “Choose your Allegiance” which is where you will get to choose your faction. For this guide, you will pick Covenant. Once you join, you will be given a side story titled “Covenant Advancement: Templar” which will task you with earning enough Reputation, the XP for factions. You can get Reputation by taking Faction Quests from Beatris Roose in Brightwood. Talk to her and open the Faction Board and complete some of the quests available. Do this until you get 3,000 Reputation. Once you have enough Reputation, return to Brightwood and talk to Templar Roose to begin the “Trial of the Templar” Quest. Know that the recommended level for this quest is level 25, so get to that level before you start this mission.
The “Trail of the Templar” Quest tasks you will finding Initiate Luca in Marcel’s Hamlet. Arriving at the location marked on your map will complete the first task. You can find Luca’s journal in a coffin at the location next to a provisions stockpile against the side of a wall. Apostate Bremen Luca should spawn at the location. If he doesn’t, then wait for him to respawn. Eventually, you will get the chance to fight him. Kill him and you will have completed the Quest. Return to Brightwood and talk to Roose and you will achieve the rank of Templar. This means that it’s time to start to work towards getting to the next rank in the Covenant: Excubitor.
