How to craft Runeglass gems in New World

To craft Runeglass gems in New World, you must use a Tier 5 Stonecutting table and have level 180 in Stonecutting. If you meet both requirements, you can make Runeglass gems using a specific Runeglass Case. Using a specific Runeglass case will add one of the damage types listed above. 

For example, if you want a Runeglass gem that adds Ranged damage, you must use a Runeglass Case of Sight. You can get Runeglass cases for any variant of Runeglass gems by crafting them inside the weaponsmith station. However, before making Rungeglass cases, you must have level 180 in weaponsmith. That said, once you have a Runeglass case, you can make one Runeglass gem using the following materials. 

  • One Cut Pristine gem (Any type)
  • One Runeglass Case 
  • One Gold Ingot
  • Two Pure Solvent
