Don’t forget to check the Known Issues List to see if your issue is currently being worked on by the dev team.
We also have existing workaround for some issues that you can find here:

  • What is your character name in New World: ChimChimMonk
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Uku Pacha
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: This is a weird one and I dont have a great repro for it, but a guildmate attempted to send me 2k gold since our town taxes are coming up. He said he sent it, but I didnt check or anything and instead fast traveled back to my house. When I arrived at my house I checked my inventory and realized that I went from ~2300 gold to 300 gold. Had no clue what happened and thought I must have run into a strange bug that stole my gold since I had only repaired and respecced once, but knew I was over 2k.

Luckily, they happened to reach out and ask me if I got the gold they sent, but I told them how I was actively looking into what happened to my gold as I had just lost 2k. He then checked his inventory and realized that he went from ~5k to 7k even though he had tried to send me 2k.

So I am unsure how exactly, but instead of the game registering it as him send me 2k gold it instead took my 2k and sent it to him (which is pretty terrifying if someone can reproduce this reliably)

  • Is this a bug or an exploit: bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: I lost 2k gold instead of receiving 2k gold
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: Yes, but only because my guildmate was able to send me back my gold
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced: dont have any, sorry
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:
    These arent great steps since I am unable to test properly but this is my best guess:
  1. Have Player A with 2500 gold and Player B with 2500 gold
  2. Have Player A send Player B 2k gold
  3. As Player A sends 2k gold, have Player B teleport back to their home
    Result: Player A will take 2k gold from Player B instead of giving them 2K gold
