In total, there are eight types of Gypsum - a new type of endgame resource - that has been added to New World in the December update, each obtained in different ways.
Here we'll detail just what Gypsum is, how you can get it, and how many you'll need to ultimately craft Gypsum Casts.
What exactly is Gypsum?
In response from community requests to improve endgame gear, Amazon Game Studios have come up with Gypsum. A new resource, it forms the basis of crafting endgame gear that has higher Expertise - the new name for the High Water Mark.
Gypsum can be farmed from several sources, such as Expedition bosses, Arenas, and Corrupted Breaches, and is then transformed into Gypsum Orbs at a new Kiln Station in settlements.
These are further refined into Gypsum Casts, of any weapon, armor, or trinket type. Crack these open (they're like chests) to reveal the gear item, with boosted expertise over its non-Gypsum equivalent.
For example, you can craft a Gypsum Spear Cast, which will net you a random spear with Gypsum-boosted Expertise. There's still an element of lottery in the specific gear you'll get, so be mindful of this.

Gypsum Orb = 10 Topaz Gypsum
Obtained from Level 55+ hostile creatures, but only after consuming a Topaz Gypsum Attunement Potion.
Craft the potion, drink it, and start farming creatures immediately, as you'll only have an hour.
It can also only be crafted once a week!
Added in the New World 1.2 update, the Topaz Gypsum Attunement Potion isn't made through Arcana crafting like other potions. So how do you make it?
New World: How to refine Gypsum
To refine Gypsum, you'll need to visit a Kiln.
These new workstations can be found in the settlements of high-level zones: Ebonscale Reach, Reekwater, Edengrove, the Great Cleave, and the Shattered Mountain.
Ruling factions will need to work together to increase the levels of these Kilns, so that players can refine all types of Gypsum.
There are no trade skill requirements to refine Gypsum.
