New World Forged In Aeternum ep. 58

On this week's episode of New World: Forged in Aeternum, the devs take a look at the MMORPG's economy, discuss different aspects of where it's at, and what it takes to try and balance it over time.

The economy may not be the most interesting of topics for some players, but it affects all of us who play the game. Pricing, rewards, inflation, wealth all interacts with your game experience whether you participate in the player-driven market or not.

Rawhide vs Ironhide is a prime example of an economic issue the team is tackling. On many (if not all) servers, the Tier 1 resource Rawhide sells for as much or more than the Tier 5 resource Ironhide. Addressing the reasons why this disparity exists is part of the team's job when balancing the economy, and they talk specifically about the Rawhide vs Ironhide problem in this week's video.

As for the current coin economy, the devs believe it is more stable than it's been in a long time, but there are always little nuances to certain resources that are continuing to be monitored.
