Sword Mastery

Sword Mastery is one of the weapon skill lines in New World MMORPG. This line has all the abilities you need if you want to fight using a one-handed sword and a shield. You can advance in this line and receive new skill points if you use a sword and shield combination only.

This skill line has two main focuses:

  • Defensive [shield skills] – the abilities are focused on giving you more protection and defense. This path is for tanks.
  • Offensive [sword skills] – the abilities are focused on a more aggressive playstyle. This path will give you more attacking skills, but less defense.

Pay attention: this tree is for sword + shield lovers. Right now there is no Dual wielding swords line in New World. Of course, you can run with a single sword only, but there is no real reason for doing this.

If you run with a single sword only you lose extra defense. The reason behind this is that right now the secondary slot is for shields only! You can’t equip an extra sword in it. That’s why if you are running with the only sword without a shield, you lose the advantage of extra defense.
