New World Patch Notes Update 3.0.2
New World Update 3.0.2 was released on October 31, 2021, and it brought several bug fixes and improvements, as well as some new content for the Halloween event, Nightveil Hallow. Here are some of the main changes and additions in this update:
- Players can now transform into some of their favorite characters from the game, such as Captain Thorpe, Isabella, and Yonas, by using the Nightveil Hallow costumes, which can be obtained from the in-game store or by completing certain quests.
- Players can also participate in the Nightveil Hallow event, which involves banishing a shadowy demon back to the darkness, and collecting candy rewards. The event will last until November 14, 2021.
- Players will no longer be restricted to one character per world that can PvP at a time – all their characters will be able to PvP. This change was made to reduce the impact of alt characters on territory control, and to give players more freedom and flexibility.
- The Lost Stopwatch Artifact was updated to provide additional threat generation similar to normal taunt gems, making it more useful for tank builds.
- The damage of several Heartrunes was increased, such as Dark Ascent, Fire Storm, and Devourer, making them more viable and competitive.
- The base damage value of the Blunderbuss weapon in PvP was reduced from -9% to -12%, to balance its high burst potential and accuracy.
- Several issues with the Ice Gauntlet and the Rapier weapons were fixed, such as the Ice Tomb bug and the Flurry Fleeting Strikes upgrade bug.
- Several perks were adjusted, such as Physical/Elemental Aversion, Damage Type Conditioning, Slowing Tether, and Healthy Toast, to make them more consistent and effective.
- Several issues with the world experience, artifacts, and economy were fixed, such as the Yeti loot exploit, the Mutation cycle bug, the Montrapala boss exploit, and the Faction Mission bug.

- Players can now explore new regions of the world, such as the Elysian Wilds, the Glacial Tarn, and the Scorched Lands, which have been transformed by the Angry Earth, a faction of corrupted nature elements.
