Best Tank Build in New World

Due to New World's classless system, there are several different ways to play as a tank. Different weapons offer different advantages and different playing styles. There is the classic tank build that favors the sword and shield, the CC (crowd control or 'crowd control') tank that plays with the ice gauntlet, or the sustainable build with the hatchet and its strong Berserk tree.

This guide covers the basics of a tank build, such as what attributes work best and what armor to wear, as well as some suggestions for weapon builds. General tips for you who want to play Tank are the following:

  • Everyone needs a tank. Builds like this always have a space in Expeditions.
  • Heavy armor . Less mobility, but you can tank damage and block the rest with your shield.
  • Pure Constitution builds are normal. This attribute scales very well early in the game.

Sword and Shield Build for Tank in New World

Players have been experimenting with different tank builds during the New World closed beta. Everything may be subject to change when the game is officially released, but one of the most popular (though not necessarily the “best”) was the classic Sword and Shield build. The NewWorldFans website is a useful platform for trying out builds. You may access it here to try out your own builds and combos before entering the game and get an idea of ​​the results.

Build for Sword and Shield in New World

The Sword and Shield are the first weapons you'll have in New World, which means you can start accumulating mastery and stat points pretty much right from the start. A good combination is Sword and Shield with Warhammer for a good balance between total defense and CC damage.

Sword and Shield Skill Tree

Best Skills and Masters for Sword

The Defender tree is a good starting point for anyone looking to use Sword. You must get Shield Bash and Defiant Stance from this mastery tree, then opt for the Whirling Blade mastery from the Swordmaster tree.

Both Shield Bash and Defiant Stance active abilities are impacted by Taunt Gems (Carnelian Gems) that will drag virtually all aggro toward you during Expeditions. In other words, you will be the main target of enemies almost 100% of the time. Be prepared for this.

Pick up most of the passives from the Defender tree, including valuable assets like Recuperation, which increases your healing received by 10 percent, ideal if you have a dedicated healer in the party, and One With The Shield, which reduces your cooldown. shield in a small amount each time you block an attack.

Warhammer Build for Tank in New World

The Hammer of War is the most chosen CC weapon in New World. Let's face it, not only for its usefulness in game, but also for its intimidating appearance, the Battlehammer tank is a force to be reckoned with. Imagine arriving on a battlefield and seeing a guy with heavy armor and a hammer the size of a house coming towards you. If you trust his speed, you'll probably find him an easy prey. But good luck, if a warrior hits you just once, he can start praying.

Warhammer Build in New World

The Hammer of War can deal massive damage and control huge areas, especially if you enter the Crowd Crusher tree. Literally a dedicated CC tree. Shockwave, AOE skill with a stun, and Clear Out, an area knockback skill, are your best bets for wreaking havoc in PVE or PVP. Combine it with the Juggernaut Tree's Armor Breaker skill and you'll help your team in more than one way.

Warhammer Skill Tree

Best Warhammer Skills and Masters

Essential liabilities for the Crowd Crusher tree include Facilitated Expedition, to increase movement speed, and Prevailing Spirit, which grants you 35 percent of your health back after activating a Crowd Crusher ability.

For this build, you must put most of your points into Constitution. This increases your overall health, but it also comes with its own benefits such as reduced damage taken and HP which lowers your armor points. You'll probably need to take the first Strength attribute privilege to increase the damage of your Warhammer and Sword.

Sword, Shield, and Tank Spear Build in New World

We don't usually think of a Tank character with a spear, it's true. After all, the tank is mostly seen with a huge shield, heavy armor, and a large weapon like an axe. A spear tends to keep enemies at bay, as it can hit them from far away, which is not the objective for a tank. The goal is to get them close and take most of the damage. It's not a wrong view here either, but you'll see how this works below.

New World Spear Build

Another popular build during the closed beta was the Sword, Shield and Spear tank build. You follow a path very similar to the Sword and Shield build above, but then specify the Spear's mobility and CC. Here is an example build for the Tank Spear player.

Spear Skill Tree

Best Spear Skills and Masters

Active Skills - Recommended you get Cyclone, Vault Kick and Sweep. Cyclone is a useful area skill that knocks opponents down. Sweep is capable of knocking your opponents to the ground and Vault Kick provides some mobility to get away from an opponent.

Passive Abilities – Focus as much on the Zoner tree as possible, picking up passives like Defensive Stance, which puts you in Fortify if you make a successful heavy attack, and Merciless Force, which adds 25 percent damage to your attacks if the enemy is knocked down.

Spear is a weapon of Dexterity, but you probably shouldn't focus too much on Dex. Keep most of your Constitution points with a few Strength points. You are using the spear for its usefulness, not for damage.

New World Sword, Shield and Ax Build for Tank in New World

Who knew a tank would ever use a weapon as small as a hatchet? Well, in New World all this is possible, after all, you need a high defense, but it's also nice to go after the fugitives, taking advantage of the mobility that a smaller weapon gives you. If some smart-ass tries to avoid you, just pull your ax and go after him, taking advantage of the aggro with you and taking everyone with him.

Build for hatchet in New World

Even being nerfed, the hatchet was one of the standout stars during the closed beta. The Berserk tree is probably one of the best domain trees in the game, thanks to its movement speed boosts, sustainability and the fact that you can finally get a chance to chase fleeing PVP enemies. Turns out the hatchet works great with a tank build as well.

For this build, we completely ignore the pitch tree. While there are some good active and passive skills there, the Berserker tree covers everything you need for a successful tank.

Ax Skill Tree

Best Skills and Masters for Ax

Active Skills – Berserk, Raging Torrent and Feral Rush. Berserk is the key active skill and should be triggered whenever you get a chance. It increases all damage dealt by 20 percent and is compatible with a Taunt Gem. You gain speed of movement with On The Hunt and sustainability with Berserking Refresh. Raging Torrent to deal some quick damage and increased movement speed, and Feral Rush is a good active mobility skill.

-- Advertising --

Essentially, maximize the Berserker tree for the passives, either taking the Feral Rush passive (Crippling Strikes) or one of the other passives of your choice.

The hatchet reduces Strength damage, which works well with the Sword and Shield as well. Any tank build requires as much Constitution as you can have, Heavy Armor (this should be obvious from the boosts the Heavy Armor set provides), and plenty of taunt gems to draw aggro to you on Expeditions.

Recommended Equipment and Armor

These equipment items will help to increase your Constitution even more and will have a perfect synergy with each other. They will also work better with the skills that are recommended for these builds. For these builds, we recommend that you use the following equipment:


  • The Messenger;
  • Disfigured Machadão of the Fourth Legion;
  • Light Storm Protector;

Armor and Accessories:

  • Barbarian Armor Set;
  • Diamond heart;
  • Rudiger's Journey Hook;

New World is set in the mid-1600s, where players colonize a fictional land called Aeternum, created in the mold of British America, along the Atlantic Ocean. Players can mine resources, craft items, and fight with and against other players.

For thousands of years, the mysterious island of Aeternum was the source of fantastic legends – and now you've found it. Shipwrecked, without supplies or allies, you'll need to make your way into a dangerous world where the fundamental laws of life and death don't apply. Magic flows through Aeternum. Brings life: miraculous healing, reanimation of the dead and strange flora with magical properties. And that brings horror: the power to wreak unspeakable destruction and the slow wear and tear of the soul through countless cycles of death and resurrection.

In such a land, your destiny is whatever you make of it.

Now, leave it there in the comments: What do you think of New World? Did you manage to play the beta? Are you enjoying the game? You can enjoy and read more about MMOs on our website.
