↖ Mozrul The Herald
Mozrul The Herald is still a viable boss farm. To avoid his attacks, position yourself on the outer triangle of the chipped block. He won't be able to hit you from there. You can safely range him down from this spot. Mozrul can drop New World valuable items such as Slipstream Tormentor's Finger Curse, Harold's Finger Curse, Thousand Voices, Bloodbain Reaver, Avenging Slots, Highwayman's Duster, and Shamanic Robes of the Archmage.
↖ Articulon The Unshackled (Version 1)
Articulon The Unshackled, in its first version, is relatively straightforward. As long as you have maxed your constitution, you can face tank him without much trouble. Articulon drops River Wake Blood, Flesh Tentacular, Fire Staff, Dragon Fires of Retaliation, Flesh Wrapped Hatchet, and Weaponsmith Pants. Additionally, there's a chance to obtain Thousand Voices, Bloodbain Reaver, Avenging Slots, Highwayman's Duster, and Shamanic Robes of the Archmage.
↖ Articulon The Unshackled (Location 2)
Articulon The Unshackled, in its second location, offers two different approaches. Firstly, you can employ the 300 constitution setup and face-tank him easily. Alternatively, you can stand behind the chest, rendering him unable to hit you. In this location, Articulon drops River Wake Blood, Flesh Tentacular, Fire Staff, Dragon Fires of Retaliation, Flesh Wrapped Hatchet, Weaponsmith Pants, as well as Blood Eagle Spear, Cold Stone, Avenging Head Cage, Fearless Spy Gloves, Shadow Work Gloves of the Archmage.
↖ High Priest Oseguera
To defeat High Priest Oseguera, focus on avoiding staggering attacks. If you need help, check the build linked in the description for assistance. High Priest Oseguera's loot includes Arcane Staff, Curious Bewitched Staff, Decayed Spirit, Gold Band of the High Herald, Mangled Heart, Weaponsmithing Hat, Blood Eagle Spear, Cold Stone, Avenging Head Cage, Fearless Spy Gloves, Shadow Work Gloves of the Archmage.
↖ Archos Imperator
Archos Imperator presents an interesting strategy. By standing on a specific ledge with one foot hanging over, you can trick him into thinking you're on the ground. This allows you to range him down safely. Loot from Archos Imperator includes Signet Ring of the Forger, Razerfang, Scalp Sculptor, Soul Crystal, Lifestyle, Widow's Kiss, Rumbling Demise, Scorpion Stone Neck, Highwayman's Duster, and Wing Curious of the Auger.
↖ Disciple of Disorder
The Disciple of Disorder is still a reliable boss to farm solo. Use the recommended build provided in the description, and you'll have no trouble taking him down. Expect to receive Spirit Path Infernus, Beast in the Bulrush, Highborn Staff, Spreadshot, Oath of the Blood, Sealed Pact, Staff of Greater Tribulation, Scalp Sculptor, Soul Crystal, Lifestaff, Widow's Kiss, Rumbling Demise, Scorpion Stone, Highwayman's Duster, and Winged Kiris of the Auger. This boss is excellent for both solo and group farming.
↖ Leviathan of the Deep
This boss we'll test is Leviathan of the Deep. This boss has been reported by many players to no longer work, but we're here to confirm that it's still a viable solo farm. Here's how it works: lure Leviathan under the scaffolding, and he won't be able to use most of his attacks on you. This makes him an easy kill, and you can expect to be rewarded with valuable loot such as Torrent Life Force, the Warhammer, Timekeeper's Hand, Slayer Bloody Valentine's Ring, I in the Abyss, Volcano Smasher, and the Armor's Hat.
↖ Daisy the Dancing Bear
Our next pair of bosses can be taken down one after another. First, we have Daisy the Dancing Bear. To defeat her easily, pull her and lead her around a house. Trap her either on the outside or inside corner of the house. Daisy will then attempt to attack you through the wall, but you can still hit her while remaining safe. Defeating Daisy will reward you with Fire Prod, the Fire Staff, Entertainer's Maul, the Warhammer, and the Woodworker Boots.
↖ Palace Maiden Xiao
After dealing with Daisy, run up the stairs and engage Palace Maiden Xiao. When she becomes aggressive, jump onto the bridge, but make sure you don't move from there. Xiao will stay on the stairs, unable to attack you directly. However, even a slight movement can trigger her to attack, leading to your demise. Farming Palace Maiden Xiao can yield valuable loot like Tempo the Greatsword, Coated Bow, Death Grip Entree, and Jeweler's Gloves.
Baines offers several solo strategies, but we'll focus on one for this guide. Stand still and range him from a specific spot. Baines will become confused, allowing you to take him down with relative ease. Keep in mind that this method takes a long time to solo, so grouping up is highly recommended. However, if you find yourself in a position where you need Baines' drops and need help finding someone to help, this strategy will work. Loot from Baines includes Glowing Sap, Earring of the Hallowed Soul, Bear Form Recurve, Luck Bow, Envy Malevolence Earring, and the Shovel Grade Ax.
↖ Viridulon the Rootbound
Many players have had questions about how to reach Viridulon the Rootbound solo. We'll show you the route to this boss in the Eternal Pools. Once you've reached him, you can use the same strategy as before: stand at a safe distance, aiming low near the base for maximum damage. Defeating Viridulon can reward you with Brash Combat, Life Spring, Deep Root, Chef Shirt, Harrow Dominion of the Doomed, Harbinger Pants, Thorn, and Silver Leaf.
↖ Siren's Fury
Siren's Fury is a boss that many players have messaged us about. Contrary to some reports, this boss still works. However, sometimes other players keep him rendered, preventing his respawn. This can be frustrating, but with a bit of persistence, you can defeat him. Shoot him from a distance, then quickly run through the gate and jump up the wall to reach the loot. Siren's Fury drops items like Bullet Storm, Staff of the Dark Prophet, Fragment Propagate, Harbinger Boots, Fearless Spy Jacket, and Harbinger Helms.
↖ Siren's Brute
Our next boss is Siren's Brute, and he's still working and easy to defeat. Lead him under the overhang, and you'll be free to take him down. Be cautious and stay under the overhang to avoid any issues. Defeating Siren's Brute grants you Terra Crash Carved Master, The Soldier, and the items dropped by Siren's Fury.
↖ Siren's Guide
The final boss we tested in this update is Siren's Guide. Defeating her is straightforward. Run in and jump behind the fish traps, then range her down. Remember to aim low for maximum damage. Siren's Guise drops Wave Rush, Sirens Legato, Duskbringer, Dominion of the Doomed, Silent Cry, Carabus of Corrupted Rage, and the In the Beginning gear.
These solo boss farms have been tested and proven effective in New World in 2023. While we encourage players to engage in group content, we understand that some individuals prefer solo gameplay. We hope this article has addressed any questions you had about the solo boss farms we covered.
