New World Petrified Wood Explained

New World Petrified Wood

Petrified Wood is a resource that is found by harvesting trees. Despite being uncommon in rarity, it is extremely difficult to find, with many players spending considerable time harvesting trees in order to find a single piece. It is used to craft a variety of enchanted weapons and armour, so it is something that you should be looking to acquire throughout your playthrough. 

You can improve your chances of finding Petrified Wood by improving your character's Logging trade skill, as well as using Logging Luck Charms on your weapons and armour, a recommended one is the Starmetal Lumberjack Charm that can be placed on an Iron Logging Axe.
