New World Salt Guide
Salt is found in Provisions Crates in Everfall and Brightwood. If you read our Provisions Crates guide, you know that Salt is region-specific, and exclusive to the Everfall and Brightwood territories. Therefore, it’s an ingredient that can cost a pretty penny to pick up from the Trading Post. For that reason, many players opt to farm for some themselves.
The nice thing about farming for Salt is that the chest spawns are unique for every player. You do not need to worry about heavy competition, as you would with, say, Iron nodes. When running the Salt farming route, you’ll also obtain a bunch of other random ingredients like Wheat, String Beans, Apples, and more. You can also find Tier 3 recipes in the chests we’ll be farming as a bonus.
The economies vary from server to server, but at this point in time, it looks like Salt sells for anywhere from 10 to 30 Gold per. Considering this route can net you between 40-70 Salt per 30 minutes, you’re looking at about 1500 Gold per hour.
