New World Location Guide: How to Find and Access Faction Shops?

Faction shops are special in-game stores of New World where players can buy various items such as gears, seals, runes, etc. Some of these items are exclusive to the faction shop and cannot be found anywhere else. 

Every player wants to get their hands on these unique faction items, but unfortunately, many of them can’t even find the faction shops because they are not explicitly marked on the map. 

How to access Faction Shop in New World? 

Faction shops can only be accessed through the respective faction representative, an NPC, found in the major settlements. Approach the representative, select “Open Faction Board” in dialogues, then click “Buy Rewards” to purchase exclusive items.

Only members of a particular faction can access its shop through the representative. A faction representative is generally marked with the faction crest on the map of big cities. Locate the crest mark and follow it to find your faction’s representative (NPC). Press F to initiate dialogues with him, select the first option, “Open Faction Board,” and then “Buy Rewards.”

Now you can scroll the shop, check out the prices of each item, and decide if you want to spend all your gold and faction tokens right now or save them for a superior item. The items available in the faction shop are not the cheapest. You can buy or find some of these items for far lower prices.

Note: Players can buy items from the faction shop by spending both gold and faction tokens. 

Unlocking More Items In The Faction Shop

A new player can only access limited items from the faction shop. The reputation level of a player, in his faction, decides the item he can purchase. Players need to increase their reputation to unlock and buy more items from the faction shop. The higher the reputation level, the more items in faction shop you unlock. 

There are five levels of reputation available at the faction shop. Every faction has different names for each level.

  • Rank 1: Default level (Only default items in the store are available)
  • Ranks 2: 3 000 reputation (+35 new items)
  • Rank 3: 11 000 reputation (+38 new items)
  • Rank 4 :26 000 reputation (+34 new items)
  • Rank 5: 49 000 reputation (+35 new items)

After reaching the last level, you will unlock all the available items in a faction shop.

What are faction tokens, and how to obtain them?

Faction tokens are an in-game currency that players can spend on items available in faction shops of the New World. These tokens can be obtained by completing the faction quests given by the faction representative (NPC).

While completing the major storyline quests, once you hit level 10, you will be able to join one of the three available factions in the game: Marauders, Syndicate, or Covenant.

After joining a faction, talk to the faction representatives present in different settlements to receive various faction quests, which you can complete to earn faction tokens. The faction quests generally involve various PvP and PvE battles. PvP quests provide more faction tokens than PvE quests, but I recommend you grind all the quests out to earn maximum tokens.
