How to buy and equip cosmetic skins in the New World
Like many MMORPGs, New World has its own way of showing off your fashion sense. This comes in the form of cosmetic skins for various items. Some are obtained for free through promotions, but most must be purchased. Here is our guide on how to buy and equip cosmetic skins in New World.
The New World store for cosmetic skins and other items
To access the New World in-game store, simply press the escape key and click on the Store tab. Here you will see various items such as armor skins, weapon skins, housing furniture, emotes, dyes, and company badges. The latter actually gives you more options when choosing your guild’s official symbol.
Naturally, since we’re talking about an in-game store, you can expect the items here to require premium currency. In New World, this premium currency is called Mark of Fortune. As of this writing, the cheapest option earns you 5,000 Marks of Fortune for $ 2.99. The most expensive, meanwhile, adds 50,000 Marks of Fortune if you spend $ 19.99.
You can see an image of the top up page below, but please note that it is based on the Philippine Peso currency (we just converted it to US dollar amounts). In addition, we remind you to spend only at your own risk. You can still play and enjoy New World as is without purchasing additional currency or cosmetics.
You can use the dyes and cosmetic skins you unlocked in New World by opening your inventory using the Tab key. Right click on a piece of equipment and choose the Dye or Change Skin option. You will then see the ones you have in your account.
For reference, this is also where you will find various cosmetics that you have already unlocked through other means. These include Deluxe Edition bonuses like the Woodsman skins, as well as the Golden Rage and Verdant Trapper armor skins. We consider them to be two of the best and rarest finds as they were only available during the beta phases of the game. Vinespun cosmetic items can also be found here if you managed to obtain them through Twitch drops during the first week of New World launch.
