Outpost Rush Guide (Updated Up To Patch 1.3.4)

254

Outpost Rush is a 20 v 20 PvPvE (player versus environment) event in New World, which means you have to fight against other players and NPC enemies at the same time. If there are not enough players in the queue, the game can switch to a 16 v 16 format. This event is not tied to Factions, players can team up with any player they choose. 

Whichever team hits 1,000 points first, wins. Points can be earned by holding an Outpost, or killing other players. The match takes 45 minutes, or before one side hits 1000 points.

Your equipment doesn’t lose its durability if you die in Outpost Rush, but you’ll lose all resources and tokens you have.

Speak with your Faction representative to join Outpost Rush as an individual or as a group. If you’re joining as a group, form one before starting. Only one person from the group should be in town to start the event. The notifications will show how many players are currently entering your lobby.

Outposts

The Outpost Rush takes place on the instanced map of Nauthynos Island. All joined players will be automatically assigned to one of two teams, if you were in a group before joining the event, you’ll stay with it. 

Each team starts from the home fort. Between those two forts, there are three Outposts that can be captured  if you have more people on it than the other team:

Astra Outpost – located north of the map.

Sol Outpost – located in the center of the map.

Luna Outpost – located south of the map.

Outpost Rush is not only about PvP, you can help your team by gathering resources to improve the Outposts’ defenses.

Gates can be upgraded, but for the moment, still can be destroyed easily. Building Outpost Gate requires 40 Infused Wood for T1, and 40 Infused Wood with 40 Infused Ore to upgrade them up to T2.

The Command Post provides armor and damage increase for your team nearby. Upgrading the Command Post will give you some damage buff and damage reduction buffs, as well as generating Battle Tokens (or Azoth).

Siege weapons can be built on the walls of the Outpost and outside it, but don’t seem to do a lot of damage. 

To build a Repeater Turret, 50 Infused Wood and 25 Infused Rawhide for T1 is required.

Rawhide can be obtained from wolves. A mini-boss called Alpha Wolf will also give you 50 Azoth.

Infused Wood is found in Ancient Groves, which are protected by aggressive woodland creatures.

Azoth Essence can be gained by killing mobs or defeating players, which drop resources on death.

So don’t lose all resources you’ve collected; deposit them in storage. If the Outpost is captured by other teams, the stored resources will be left in that Outpost which they will own. Your team can access it and use those resources to continue upgrading.

Summoning Monsters

Summoning Circles are placed in strategic locations and can be used to summon beasts. Note that only one summoned monster of every kind can exist at the same time. You cannot summon one more if any of the teams already did it. 

There are 3 types of Summoning Stones:

  1. Ursine Summoning Stone (125 Azoth Essence) to summon the Guardian Bear. Can be killed pretty easily and doesn’t take many problems;
  2. Wraith Summoning Stone (drops from Ug and Dug) to summon Wraith. It has pretty serious damage and can make some mess being summoned near the enemy team. You can also summon Wraith near the base backdoor. It does significant damage and brings more chaos to the battlefield;

  1. Brute Summoning Stone (500 Azoth Essence at Nauthynos Corrupted Portal): to summon Corrupted Brute.

The most efficient strategy for the current moment is to summon the Brute in the middle point near the door from your opponent’s side.

Baroness Hain

Baroness Hain is a boss which will spawn to the east of Nauthynos Island in 10 minutes after the match starts.

Killing the boss gives the team 3-minutes of health regeneration and protection 15% buff and will have the opposing team’s points frozen for 3 minutes. 

Baroness Hain will respawn every 10 minutes.

Funny thing is that Powder Keg does damage Baroness Hain, and 5-6 barrels is enough to kill her. This might be fixed in future updates.
