The new patch 1.7.2 will be released in New World today, November 16th. This mainly brings bug fixes and a new event. It’s called Turkey Terror, fitting for Thanksgiving. We at MeinMMO tell you everything important.

What is this event? In Turkey Terror, giant turkeys spawn in certain locations. They’re not that easy to defeat, so a party is required, similar to the previous Halloween event.

However, the rewards for the turkey event are expected to be smaller. Last year the focus was mostly on the Giant Turkey Leg, an item required for the Cook. This can be used to create a buff food that significantly increases your luck on rare items.

The turkeys appeared in Everfall, Lightwood, Lost Shore, Wind Circle, Priderock, Cutlass Reef, and First Light last year. Should there be any changes regarding the event in 2022, we will keep you up to date in this article here.

When is the patch coming out? Patch 1.7.2 was pushed to the servers on November 16 at 8:00 am. However, the servers are currently still under maintenance.
