In New World, there are many resources from which you can craft different items. In our guide, we explain to you how to find thorn bushes and whether you need a sickle or a certain mining level to get their thorn branches.
Thorn branches in New World: where to find thorn bushes
To get thorn branches, you have to go to a thorn bush. They are usually located near rivers or lakes. There are some occurrences, especially in Windkreis. If you open the map, you will see a river right next to Windkreis, which is also noted as a fishing spot. This is the first port of call from the city center.
In the west, there are other rivers or lakes that are bursting with thorn bushes. There are also many thorny bushes at the fishing lake, where there is also a fast travel point. Follow the river south to find more specimens.
Run along the banks and look around for thorny bushes. They don’t have as many leaves as a normal bush from which they extract wood. They quickly go under between some normal bushes. Therefore, pay particular attention to the item name that is displayed to you as soon as you stand in front of the bush.
New World: How to Harvest and use thorns branches
If you stand in front of the thorn bush, New World shows you the action key “E”. Hold it down so that you cut the thorn bush and win its branches and buds. You don’t need a sickle, as other plants sometimes do, or any other tool. Accordingly, there is no level requirement for dismantling.
In addition to the thorn branches you are looking for, you will occasionally find thorn bush buds, from which you can make weak mana potions, for example. Fireflies can also be found when one or the other thorny plant is broken down. They are mainly used as bait when fishing. They increase your chances of finding a rare fish in freshwater.
