New World Expedition Guide: How to craft Lazarus Tuning Orbs

In order to access the Lazarus Instrumentality, one of New World's five-player PvE Expedition dungeons, you'll first need to get hold of the Lazarus Tuning Orb. This guide shows you how.

New World Expedition Guide: How to craft Lazarus Tuning Orbs

Located in the Reekwater territory, the Lazarus Instrumentality is a five-player Expedition (dungeon) in New World with a recommended player level of 60.

However, before you get stuck into the dungeon and all the mysteries it holds, you'll need to find a particular item that grants you access -- the Lazarus Tuning Orb.

Be mindful that unlike other MMOs, the Lazarus Tuning Orb is not a permanent key item. Your party only needs one to access the Expedition, and whomever begins the event will see their Orb consumed.

Complete quests for Aulus Fulvius

Found in the Reekwater Settlement, Aulus Fulvius will offer a lengthy questline starting with Secrets of the Swamp once you're level 56. 

Once six quests are done, he will offer The Original Guardian (Expedition), and grant you a one-off Lazarus Tuning Orb. 

Take it, and use it to enter the Expedition and collect an item called the Guardian's Eye. 

Do quests for Leyson Reese

Reese can be found in the Shattered Mountains, at the Mountainhome outpost. 

Providing you've reached level 58, he'll offer a quest called Pushing Back. Complete this, then the follow-up Guardians' Secrets, and he'll unlock Baetylus Headpiece (Expedition). 

This one grants a one-off Lazarus Tuning Orb, asking you to defeat the Cilla in the Expedition.

Get Additional Orbs Through Crafting

Stonemasons can also craft the Lazarus Tuning Orb. They'll need to have a Tier 5 Stonecutting Table, and be at least level 150 in the profession.

You'll need the following materials:

  • Corrupted Lodestone x20
  • Asmodeum Chisel x1
  • Runestone x10
  • Lazarus Core x1

Be mindful that you can only craft one Lazarus Tuning Orb every 168 hours (one per week). 

Corrupted Lodestone

These are found in Major Breach Caches, and as such require a bit of effort to obtain.

They can also be crafted by Stonecutters of Lv.100 or above, with a Tier 5 Stonecutting Table. You'll need x2 Corrupted Crystals. 

Asmodeum Chisel

You can get the Asmodeum Chisel for 7,000 Faction Tokens and 750 Gold from your faction's rep.


Craft these at the Stonecutting Table. You'll need to be a max level Stonecutter with access to a Tier 5 Table. 

You'll need x5 Obsidian Voidstones, x1 Obsidian Sandpaper, and x1 Putrid Lodestone.

Be mindful that you can only craft 10 of these every 24 hours. 


Lazarus Core

These can be crafted by Stonecutters of Level 150 with a Tier 5 Table.

You'll need x1 Elemental Heart, x1 Undying Heart, x3 Glowing Spore, and x3 Earth Totem.
