New World peppercorn locations: Where to find the ingredient and all 25 recipes

Spice up your meal.

You’re a mid-seventeenth-century explorer in Amazon’s new MMO, New World. While exploring, you’ll want to cook meals to heal yourself or briefly buff specific stats. A whopping 25 recipes require peppercorns in New World.

How to farm peppercorns in New World

If you need to increase your peppercorn inventory, you can only do it by farming herbs. All of them look like the same violet-colored plant found in the wild. Each herb you pick up has a chance to be one of 12 herbs like paprika, oregano, cinnamon, dill, basil, and peppercorns. Your chances of getting the item you actually need are completely up to fate, so it might take some time to farm enough for your needs.

You’ll need a forge-crafted Harvesting Sickle and the Harvesting skill to gather herbs.

Fortunately, there are some rules to the herb system. Although herbs can spawn anywhere, specific areas will reward certain herbs more consistently. If you’re looking for peppercorns, head to the Monarch’s Bluff area located in the map’s southwestern area. Herbs farmed there seem to have a higher chance to become peppercorn, oregano, or paprika. You can also find peppercorn in the Cutlass Keys area, south of Monarch’s Bluff.

You can find every herb location in Monarch’s Bluff and Cutlass Keys using this map, as generated by a New World interactive map by Studio Loot.
