In New World, dealing with mobs with shields can be very problematic. They can block your normal light attacks using a shield with just a little bit of stamina. And their stamina will be back up very fast after depletion.
This is especially irritating for ranged weapons such as life staff and ice gauntlet, which do not have good single target spells.
Fishing is becoming quite popular in New World. And fishing hotspots are very useful for fishing as they provide bonus to fishing and reduced waiting time. However, sometimes players see a white whirlwind / puddle in the fishing hotspot, instead of the usual fish “popping out of water”. Does it mean the fishing hotspot is not working? Here is New World fishing hotspot white whirlwinds / puddles explained below.
