New World Arcane Repository Guide: Location and Recipes

Here's everything you need to know about the Arcane Repository in New World, from how to use them to all the recipes.

The Arcane Repository is as valuable as the other crafting stations found in New World, this one allowing you to craft potions, magical weapons, and essences.

It is the only place where you can craft such weapons like ice gauntlets, fire and life staves, as well as, magical tinctures. There are five tiers of Arcane Repository, and each of these offers a different set of items. The higher the tier, the better items you can get.

How to Use an Arcane Repository in New World

New World Arcane Repository Guide1

Arcane Repositories can be found in all settlements in New World. They are indicated by the symbol of a triangle inside a circle on the world map, as you can see above.

However, different settlements will have different tiers of Arcane Repositories. If you're looking for a high tier Arcane Repository, you need to attract a vast amount of Arcanists into your settlement.

The typical way of upgrading your Arcane Repository looks like this:

  1. Engage in a PvP guild on a server of your choice
  2. Take over a settlement
  3. Guild decides to focus on the defenses of the settlement
  4. Guild can decide to improve the crafting stations
  5. Focus on crafting Arcana-based items to upgrade Arcana Repositories

The higher the level of your Arcanists, the higher tier Arcane Repositories you get. You can increase the level of your Arcanists by doing the following:

  1. Collect Bulrush Cob and Hyssop plants
  2. Craft Weak Health Potions
  3. Reach Arcana Level 5
  4. Collect Water Motes, Rivercress Stems, and Toadpots
  5. Craft Common Focus Potions
  6. Reach Arcana Level 50
  7. Use Orichalcum Arcanist's Charm to boost your Arcana progression

When these conditions are met, your Arcane Repositories will be automatically upgraded to higher tiers. But you need to craft items all the time, or you will lose your progress and your crafting stations will lose their tiers as well.

You may also find settlements with high tier Arcane Repositories, but that is an extremely rare chance.
