Right click does nothing anymore in the inventory screen.
The UI overlays important information when you select an equipped item

Storage chests don’t properly give housing score

  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay:

Inventory feels weird having to left click when I’m used to right clicking.

The menus (when you “click” an equipped item for example show BEHIND the UI) Ill provide a screenshot.

You have to replace all your storage chests to get the bonus space, but placing the same type of chests with a green outline, only the first chest of that type will give +14. Placing the other 3 chests either give 0 points or negative points.

  • (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:
    The UI is overlapping poorly.

  • What is your character name in New World: TrashPandaJuan
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Camelot
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Players are still using the tent to block Orichalcum spawns, in their favor. They are able to remove the tent when no one is around and then farm the instantly spawning orichalcum.
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Both bug and exploit
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: Unable to farm nodes as well as the toxic players camping the nodes.
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: Yes, moved on to another node with much less Orichalcum and foot traffic.
  • (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: Place tent at the corner of an Orichalcum node. Run away and do other things for 25-30 minutes. Come back and examine the area for players. Remove tent. Instant spawning orichalcum nodes. Replace tent after farming. Rinse. Repeat.

I haven’t seen this in any notes, but this is an urgent issue, which I think most people could agree is glitching, exploiting, and a bug all at its finest. The most farmed, and needed material in the game, where there are only smidge of nodes compared to the others in the game. Even some insight into this. I have reported the players who do this for griefing, and glitching yet they still remain the same people doing it.

Thanks for your hard work!

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Castle of Steel
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Desyncs
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: It’s disorienting and can also cause deaths.
  • (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: https://streamable.com/lt7zqe
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:

First, let me start by saying that HoM feels a lot better in terms of desync in PvP. I ran into many showers, and didn’t experience any desync with spear/rapier from my 1 hour of OPR. Hopefully this is for real, and they are fixed.

However, there are still a few issues. In the video above, I had two encounters of desync.

The first clip I rolled, and even used up STA, but my character did not move. It did the rolling animation, again I used stamina, and my character even appeared to move, but then I moved right back to where I was originally just to die in a root.

In the second clip, I cast Skewer but got staggered as I cast it. My character did the skewer lunge, but then i bounced back and the ability got canceled. The animation being as it is can be very disorienting when getting staggered mid-cast. If my skewer is going to cast and lunge me, it should be fast enough to hit the target instead of rubberbanding me back in place in the case of an interrupt or stagger.

  • What is your character name in New World: Mordhan
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Maramma
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Warhammer disappears like the spear in the known issues list. Sometimes after using an ability, the Warhammer disappears visually but still does damage.

What is your character name in New World:

  • Sithera/Wibblzz

What server/world did you experience your issue on:

  • All worlds

Describe the issue you are experiencing:

There’s several.

  • Ice Tombe blocking/nullifying healer abilities
  • beacons bouncing off enemies too close to you
  • sacred ground (and other AOEs) being displaced by maelstrom
  • using middle-mouse to manually place sacred ground when group targeting is turned on will break and auto-target whoever you last targeted instead of where you’re aiming
  • the targeting system for healing is sometimes inaccurate to where you’re aiming and it targets people off-screen
  • oblivion nullifies all healing from sacred ground/beacons when placed on top of them and essentially erases them
  • light/heavy attacks with lifestaff halt mana recovery meaning you never recover mana and thus all mana recovery perks and buffs (including the 300focus buff) is completely redundant

… plus more things that are not considered bugs but make healing feel terrible

Is this a bug or an exploit:

  • Bugs

(if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay:

  • abilities being rendered useless outside of your control, and your allies (or you) dying because of it

(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:

  • Please refer to the attached post which includes all videos and fixes inside.

What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:

  • Full documented healing bugs/balance issues here with reproduction steps, examples, and solutions:

I am persistent because I love this game and want this to be fixed. I’ve waited 2000hrs of playing for them to be addressed, but every patch it gets ignored. Please fix them and add them to the known issues, thank you.
