Do you want to add an Ice Gauntlet to your build in New World? Here's how to get one.

One weapon type unique to Amazon Games' MMO, New World, is the Ice Gauntlet. This piece of arcane artillery is, unsurprisingly, centered around the abilities of ice and snow. Players can use the Ice Gauntlet to freeze out the competition, summon frigid golems to aid them in battle or crush enemies in the midst of a blizzard.

How to Get the Ice Gauntlet in New World

At the time of writing, the only known way to get an Ice Gauntlet is by crafting it. While it is technically a weapon, it's arcane roots categorize it under the Arcana tab of crafting, meaning players will need to visit an Arcane Repository in their nearest Settlement.

The recipe for an Iron Ice Gauntlet contains the following ingredients:

  • 12x Iron Ingot
  • 5x Coarse Leather
  • 6x Water Mote

Ice Gauntlets have two skill trees: Ice Tempest and Ice Conjurer. While both are excellent choices for a player who prioritizes crowd control, they do so in separate ways.

Tempest players will find the best success in causing problems for others. Their abilities will center on slowing, immobilizing, and generally making enemies easier to hit. They do have a few abilities that can be used to incentivize enemies to move to and away from a specific area, but a Tempest player will likely want to stay a good distance from their targets.

Conjurers are a bit more chaotic. Their abilities are sharp and to the point—literally. A good portion of them have AoE and "danger zones" for others that can prove effective when trying to herd enemies to a specific position. They can also entomb themselves in ice if the situation gets too heated for them, making themselves invulnerable for a short length of time.
