All Event Chests do not provide items with over 591 GS

****** Please make sure you fill out the following information before submitting a report ******

  • What is your character name in New World: Seether Magnes
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Mag Mell
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: All NPC Event Chests (Major Breach, Minor Breach, Invasions) do not have items with over 591 gear score. I had a feeling that this was the case but after talking to some people on my chest run who also have 600 watermarks I feel like the sample size is large enough to be conclusive. I personally have opened around 50 Level 65 portal greater caches and 80 minor caches as well as 10 invasion chests. When adding in the people I was talking to, the number of chests opened was over 1000. No one had ever seen an item over 591 gear score.

I think this bug is probably related to the bug that was stopping items with over 591 gear score to drop from open world boss/chests as well as expeditions. I think this is potentially the case with OPR and War chests but I don’t have a large enough sample size to say that with certainty. Please fix this!

  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: Makes the rewards nearly meaningless.
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: Yes, I no longer grind these things for chest rewards.
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Have 590+ Watermark for multiple gear slots. Open a bunch of the chests.
