New World Guide – Syndicate Advancement: Scrivener
New World has three factions that you have to pick and be a part of to further the main story as well as PvP. Once you get to a certain point you have to complete a quest to “limit break” to get to the next tier. Here’s how you do it.
Once you get to a certain level you will see the “Syndicate Advancement: Scrivener” quest.
You will then need to travel to Brightwood to start this trial.
There you will find Laurentius Krockes will you give you the quest. It is recommended to be level 24 to complete. I was able to do it as a level 23 without much difficulty as long as you watch who you fight.
You will need to then travel to Walsham’s Field. You can get there easy if you Fast Travel to Shadowmine Shrine. It will be a short walk to the quest location.
Once you get there, you need to look for this lit-up area to place the trace absorber. Then you will need to find and fight the Gheist Malikor, which should be nearby. If you don’t see it right away, just clear out the surrounding monsters and it will pop soon.
Once you defeat Gheist Malikor, you will need to go back to where you placed the trace absorber and collect it back. Travel back to Laurentius Krockes in Brightwood. You will also get a good set of rewards in faction tokens, exp, and money.
This will then unlock new items at the faction stations and a higher cap for reputation points.
