The Sickle in New World is an essential tool for those who have chosen Harvesting as one of their gathering professions, as well as for Cooking, Weaving, and Arcana.

Sickle: New World Gathering Tool Guide

The Sickle is one of the most essential tools in New World, as it's needed to gather the resources needed for several different professions. It's even crucial in the advancement of Settlements.

Here's how to get hold of the Sickle, along with what resources can be gathered and the professions that use it as a base tool.

Sickle: Types & Level

Just like with weapons, tools also have different tiers. The higher your level, the better the tools you can equip.

There are five different tiers for the Sickle, each with increasing bonuses:

Tier I - Flint Harvesting Sickle:

Gathering speed: 100%.
Requires Level 1 to equip.

Tier II - Iron Harvesting Sickle:

Gathering speed: 125% and above.
Requires Level 1 to equip.

Tier III - Steel Harvesting Sickle:

Gathering speed: 250% and above.
Requires Level 17 to equip.

Tier IV - Starmetal Harvesting Sickle:

Gathering speed: 400% and above.
Requires Level 37 to equip.

Tier V - Orichalcum Harvesting Sickle:

Gathering speed: 635% and above.
Requires Level 60 to equip.

Note: Depending on Equipment Score, crafted tools may require a much higher character level than those listed above. These are the base levels only.

How to obtain a Sickle

Sickles can be obtained from the following:

  • Crafting at a camp
  • Crafting at a crafting station in a settlement
  • As rewards for completing quests
  • Drops from enemies
  • From the Trading Post

Be mindful that only Tier 1 tools can be made within your camp.

The best way to get the better Sickles is through the crafting station, which will require Engineering. We don't recommend spending money on them at Trading Posts unless you have money to burn.

Improving the Sickle

Via Crafting

When crafting your Sickle, it may receive bonuses.

Adding special resources to your crafting process can force specific Perks to be added.

Here are some key examples that work well with the Sickle:

Steel Botanist's Charm

Adds Horticulture Discipline - grants 3.0% more Harvesting experience.

Starmetal Botanist's Charm

Adds Harvesting Luck perk - grants 2.0% chance of finding rare items.

Orichalcum Botanist's Charm

Adds Harvesting Yield perk - grants 10% more resources.

Via Trophies

Homeowners can add Trophies to their furnishings, which grant additional bonuses. While these require a significant investment for the resources, they can add huge boosts to your H.

For example, Luck helps you obtain better and more varied resources, as well as special resources used for unlocking perks.

These have great synergy with Harvesting:
