  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: When you are looking at other players in the social panel or in the war/invasion roster screen, hovering over them brings up a more detailed player info card. That card is supposed to show what company the player is in, but it only does so for maybe 10% of players if that. This feature has been broken for more than half a year now. I have reported it in game every single patch and it is never addressed.

  • Is this a bug or an exploit (if exploit, follow the instructions here: [Dev Blog] How to Report Exploits - Updated ): Bug

  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: For company leaders it is incredibly frustrating to never be able to see what company other players are in unless you are standing next to them in game. It leads to increased confusion and increased gatekeeping of wars and invasions since I will only interact with people who are in contact with me via discord because the games social features are so broken/lacking.

Had 595 expertise on Great sword. Made a Gypsum cast and opened a 595 great sword… no upgrade. What is this nonsense?

Edit: Had 600 Gear Score already. I guess it snuck up on me that day and forgot to edit this.

Greatsword Infused cast still missing.

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Orofena
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Each time upon loading into the world, frames are very very low (30-55) for the first 5-10 seconds and then they go up to normal numbers. Consistent every single time I open the game. Started with Brimstone sands.
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Simply open the game, pick your character, and load in.
  • When did this happen? (Relative date and time; please include your timezone): Everyday starting with Brimstone Sands update.
  • What is your character name in New World:

Old Man Arahor

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on:

Dry Tree

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing:

The Harbinger items (ex: Harbinger of Destruction) does not drop as 590, even if they are considered named items. It also does not have that flashy tooltip the named items has. It’s listed as a named item on the database, so I assume this is unintended.

  • Is this a bug or an exploit

Bug, most likely.

  • How did the issue affect your gameplay:

It still prevent people to farm them “decently” since it’s out of the new system for named items, this will just cause the item set to become neglected and sort of forgotten since many wont bother burning themselves out at this gamble.

  • Were you able to recover from the issue:

No, as soon as we found out, we all left. It is just no point, nor worth the time and effort considering the horrible drop rate. We did get two drops in our time there, chest and gloves, the chest had a gear score of 500, the gloves 567gs.

  • Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:

Will attach to the message. Mind you, I’m 99% certain this is the case for ALL items that belong to the Harbiner set collection, that would be like 15 items or so that are currently bugged at this writing moment. Maybe this is fixed on the current PTR @Luxendra can maybe look into it?

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

Head over to Scorched Mines for example, and kill the Scorchvein Supply Guard since they have the highest chances of dropping it. Then be very lucky that they will drop, easiest would be to just look at the source of these items with some dev magic to see that they don’t work as intended.

  • When did this happen? (Date and Relative time; please include your timezone)

I personally discovered this on the 30th October at about 7PM CET, but I’ve seen multiplie reports and threads on the forum after discovering it that people have found out about this 8 days back or so now.

  • What is your character name in New World: BravoScene

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Themiscyra

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Unable to damage or receive damage from bosses in their own arenas. Also worth noting, it might be the game just not recognizing me in the instance, I walked past the respawn shrines of dungeons and it didn’t set the new respawn location for me if I died.

  • How did the issue affect your gameplay: Unable to help kill bosses in dungeons.

  • Were you able to recover from the issue: No, a hard restart of the game, and character logs, but nothing fixed the dungeon. It has happened in the new Ennead Dungeon, and also Garden of Genesis.

  • Where you can utilize this exploit: Technically yes, you can’t receive boss damage, so if anyone in your team goes down, you can revive them for free, without the risk of being damaged and knocked off the revive.

  • How did you find this exploit: Randomly happened to me in Ennead, thought nothing of it, got my spot replaced, then it happened in Genesis.

  • Is it reproducible? If yes, please list the steps: unknown at this time

  • Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:


    Clearly standing in an acid pool of the final boss of Garden of Genesis, and not taking any damage.
