New World Status Effects
New World has many status effects that can change the outcomes of battles in both PVE and PVP. The charts below are quick-reference guides to all Buffs, Debuffs, and Damage Over Time Effects in New World.
|Cleanse||Removes and provides immunity to all debuffs||N/A|
|Empower||Increase attack damage||50%|
|Fortify||Increases damage absorption||200%|
|Haste||Increases run and/or sprint speed||50% *|
|Heal||Restores health over time||N/A|
|Slow||Reduces run and/or Sprint Speed||50%|
|Rend||Reduce damage absorption||70%|
|Weaken||Reduces attack damage of enemy||50%|
|Exhaust||Reduces stamina regeneration||N/A|
|Silence||Disables abilities but allows basic attacks||N/A|
|Root||Disables movement but allows basic attacks and abilities||N/A|
|Stun||Disables all actions||N/A|
Debuffs are extremely important in both New World PVP and PVE. Keeping max Rend stacks on your target is extremely important in expedition boss fights, increasing your group’s damage significantly.
Along with rend, disease can help weaken your target in PvP, making killing them more likely through healing and heavy mitigation.
Damage Over Time Effects
|Burn||Fire damage over time|
|Bleed||Physical damage over time|
|Poison||Elemental damage over time|
|Shock||Stamina damage over time|
|Disintegrate||Weapon damage over time and reduces damage absorption|
Damage over time is an easy way to increase the overall damage you can deal to a target. Keenly Jagged is one of the best weapon perks you can obtain due to the amount of overall DPS it adds. It’s important to note that the reduction of damage absorption from Disintegrate counts towards max rend stacks.
