One of the key components of the new MMO New World is crafting and where there is crafting, there is also scavenging and collecting of supplies. One of the resources that you can collect is fibers which you can get from harvesting hemp. This fiber is pretty much a necessity when weaving so it is good to know where to find hemp so that you can get some fiber. This guide will show you where to find hemp and fibers in New World.
Where to Find Hemp in New World
Hemp is found throughout the world of Aeternum and is a pretty common resource to find, so if you are heading out to find some fibers, it shouldn’t be too difficult. First, it is important to know that you’ll need a harvesting sickle and the Harvesting skill to gather these herbs, so don’t go hunting for them with these if you don’t want to waste your time. These are found pretty easily in the world, usually in the forest biomes or in the grasslands. You can distinguish them by their purple caps.
There is a large abundance of the stuff found to the west of Windsward and to the south of Everfall, both of which can be seen on your map. Speaking of which, below is a map where to find the hemp that can be harvested for a chance of getting some fibers. The map is provided by Studio Loot which provides a completely interactive map that will show you the spawns of settlements, monsters, NPCs, anything you might need. The map is linked here.
Fibers are some of the most important materials that you can find in New World especially in the early game. It is a key component in crafting linen which is used in crafting light armor.
New World is now available on PC through Steam.
