Higher tier solvent does not increase yield

  • What is your character name in New World: Lightblademc
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Barri EU
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Choosing different solvents for stonecutting does not change the bonus yield amount, unlike all other refining skills.
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: Weak solvent and pure solvent are basically equally useful, but pure solvent is much harder to aquire. Stonecutting yields are less than all other refining skills, with the same input materials.
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: No
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:


It did increase yield during beta and it was ridiculously overpowered. This was nerfed deliberately, and is not a bug.

Thank you for your report, but this is by design!

Really? It’s by design to render content irrelevant? What’s their purpose now, then? WTF is going on at AGS???

Perhaps this is how it was initially intended but perhaps it should be revisited? Even if it gives a slight bonus increase like 2-5% would make sense since I’m sure a majority don’t realize using a higher tier solvent is basically a waste of resource and gold in stone cutting.

Higher level solvent is needed for higher level furnishing.
Solvent is much more interlinked with furnishing, not stone cutting.
