In this article, we will show you how to improve your skill level in smelting in New World. Smelting provides you with metals and coal to make more weapons or armor to sell for New World gold. It is important to collect and process resources so that you can refine better ores
Charcoal can be made from workshop level 2 and skill level 0. For the production you need 2 green wood.
Metals can also be refined at the forge. Here it also starts from level 2 and goes up to the Legendary level of the smelter. At a legendary smelter, you can produce a void bent ingot.
Of course, valuable metals like silver and gold, as well as platinum, cannot be missing in New World. You can also produce these as ingots at the smelter if you can bring the necessary resources. We have compiled a list of which ingots are available for which metals in this table.
