Gathering raw materials such as wood, ores, herbs have an important role in New World. After just a few minutes, we learn how to make a Skinning Knife via the quest line. As the story progresses, you will receive a tool for each Profession as a quest reward.
However, these tools are very simple and have no Bonuses such as faster mining, harvesting or additional materials. With Engineering you are able to produce much better tools and sell them to other players.
In order to be able to create tools from Starmetal or Orichalcum, you have to invest a lot of materials to skill the profession. For example, you need an Engineering skill of 100 for the Starmetal tools.
