New World Trial Of The Scrivener: Location, How to Complete and Rewards

The Trial of Scrivener is a Syndicate advancement quest that players will have to participate in to become a Scrivener and rise through the ranks of this faction. All you have to do is head to the mission’s starting location, perform a simple task of taking down a spirit, and go home with valuable rewards and a higher reputation.

It must be kept in mind that players will have to hit level 24 and acquire 3,000 faction reputation to be eligible for the Trial of Scrivener quest. With these requirements unfulfilled, the quest wouldn’t even appear!

If you find yourself encountering any hiccup, our Trial of the Scrivener – Syndicate Advancement: Scrivener guide is here to help you along the path.

For the unaware, New World lets players customize their characters by providing three different factions: The Marauders, The Syndicate, and The Covenant. Choosing any one of the three options makes the questline of this MMO unique for enthusiasts by determining their role, influence, number of enemies they’ll have, safe spaces across the map, and so on.

How to Start the Trial Of The Scrivener Quest in New World?

To start the Trial of the Scrivener quest in New World, speak to Laurientus Krockes, the Syndicate rep, inside the settlement of Brightwatch at Brightwood Hamlet.

The Trial of the Scrivener quest will make you go to a cemetery in Walsham’s Field in order to capture Soul Traces from the Lost Gheist Malikor.

When you reach the cemetery, look for a blue highlighted spot at the right of a tombstone. Upon spotting one, place the Trace Absorber or Psychokinetic Absorber down there.

Soon enough, the Lost Gheist Malikor will spawn to put up a fight against you.

Now, you must be wondering what’s the quickest way to kill Malikor, right?

Well, Killing Gheist Malikor is uncomplicated, yet it’s no walk in the park, given that this enemy hits as hard as a rock. Therefore, I’d recommend you rely on Nature to kill Malikor. Even ice should be sufficient enough for secondary attacks. 

Gheist Malikor can easily deal with lightning; therefore, it should be avoided at all costs.

Once Malikor is defeated, pick up the Trace Absorber and head back to Laurentius Krockes in Brightwood Hamlet. This will complete the quest and make you win the rank of Scrivener alongside several rewards.
