Introduction

All of the perks in New World are categorized using perk labels. When crafting an item in New World you can not roll multiple perks within the same perk label. For example, if you roll Refreshing in the Cool Down Reduction Perk Label you can not get any of the other CDR perks.

You could however roll an item that has something within the “CDR” perk label and within the “Buff Duration” perk label. For example, you could roll Refreshing and Empowered on the same Amulet. 

Below you find all of the perks and their associated perk labels within New World listed by each category type (You can use “CTL + F” to search for applicable perks and perk labels & use the table of contents to find your desired category).

It should be noted that there are some perks that will drop an item that can not be crafted utilizing a craft mod. The lists below includes only items that can be crafted utilizing craft mods.

Armor Perks and Perk Labels

Worth noting are the “Skill” perk labels toward the bottom. These are the perks for each weapon type. It’s worth pointing out that while crafting gear the skill perks can also be utilized on weapons, however, players often times opt to craft armor with the weapon-specific perk on it to take advantage of other perks on the weapons that cannot be crafted on armor. However, having the perk on your weapon will scale better and more powerful.

For example, you would shoot for something like Keen, Viscous, Keenly Empowered on the weapon and roll your weapon-specific perk, such as, Fortifying perforate on one of your armor pieces. The weapon-specific perks do not stack.
