To report a player or company for Code of Conduct violations, please do so here

  • What is your character name in New World: Ambassador Worf
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Lilliputian
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: I noticed the multitude of posts with no responses from AGS, what is with that? Lvl 15 quest for upgrading camp to lvl2 doesn’t unlock unless you join a faction.
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: bug or poor design/oversight
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: I don’t want to join a faction, my gameplay is pve and I already don’t get faction bonuses or an azoth staff…pretty dumb on the staff IMO but I can’t upgrade my campsite either?
  • (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:
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: don’t pick a faction and try to play the game.

No side quests other than fishing open up? Am I missing something? I don’t really want to get stuck here, I really wanted to lvl60 a grey…maybe you can redesign the character progression to allow greys to flag against all factions? True merc options and factionless companies? At least let us upgrade camps FFS

@Community-Team I am sorry to tag you, but I’ve seen all the other posts on this ignored and locked after no response…just some acknowledgment would be great, and a solution even better! Thanks

It looks like no side quests in starter regions are open, except barkimedes.


That’s a cool feature where they impose you a faction.

We definitely appreciate your feedback here! Factions are a large part of gameplay, so I’d definitely suggest joining one for the time being.

Does that mean there’s no fix on the horizon for campsites?


Haha, will help you with the bump. Basically what was said above was. We don’t care if you wanna play solo so deal with it. And this is something some players have been asking since beta, but they’re putting it under the carpet on the hopes people like me bend to play pvp.

Still looking for a response on if this will be changed at all @Community-Team

Still no answer, stuck with lvl1 camp @Community-Team

Another day with no updates


Also, I was thinking that if the Azoth Staff doesn’t doesn’t unite the clans until you are upgrading it why can’t you unlock the first lvl staff with no faction?

How hard would it be to make camps separate from a faction dependency, and also lvl 1 staff…honestly.

While we’re at it let grey’s flag for pvp against all factions and have companies as well.

Still no updates

also, #freethefactionless

unlock lvl 2 camps, give us azoth staff.
