Obtaining Azoth Staff in New World! Quests, Upgrades, Uses and More

New World is a PvPvE MMORPG that focuses majorly on PvP scenarios. Still, if players wish to participate in some high-level PvE events, they need Corruptions Bane, a.k.a Azoth Staff, an extremely important tool to access such events.

Luckily, it is not that hard to get your hands on an Azoth staff, nor does it require some impossible endgame material to craft it, and players can acquire it simply by completing the main storyline quests of the New World.

The expeditions are high-level PvE events involving several elite enemies and two major bosses. It is recommended to form a party of at least five players before starting any of the expedition. The Amrine Excavation expedition is the lowest level expedition (recommended level 25) that players can dive into immediately after acquiring an Azoth Staff.

These corrupted portals, breaches, and monoliths are marked with red dots on the map, and appear randomly in the game. Players need high-tier upgraded Azoth Staff to access high-level expeditions. 

How to upgrade Azoth Staff in New World?

The Azoth Staff can be upgraded by similarly completing certain quests after reaching a particular level. It has a total of 5 Tiers. Here are all the quests you must complete to upgrade your Azoth Staff.
