share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Amazon’s New World has a wide array of activities for its players to engage in, such as gathering, crafting, and engaging in various kinds of combat by playing in Expeditions or Arenas. However, to have access to these activities, you must first have some special items in your possession, called Tuning Orbs.

Today we will talk about the many mysterious Tuning Orbs, how to craft them, and the variety of playable activities related to them.

What are the Tuning Orbs?

To be able to obtain Tuning Orbs, you must first complete the quest "Destiny Unearthed", part of the main story questline that will unlock your first Tuning Orb and the Amrine Excavation Expedition. After that, you must level up your Stonecutting skills and your character, which in time will unlock the rest of the activities and Tuning Orb Recipes.

There are three Arenas and six Expeditions in New World, and all of them involve you teaming up with other players to be able to complete them since they can be pretty difficult to beat. Thankfully, only one player needs to have the appropriate Tuning orb for all the group to play the activity, so it's not as draining as it sounds.

That being said, you should keep in mind that Tuning Orbs are a consumable item, so once you're done with the Expedition or Arena, you will need to craft another one if you want to play it again.
