During Community Convergence, we want to celebrate all types of New World creators, and highlight their streams on dedicated days during the event.

The featured creator this week is a staple in the New World community, BagginsTV. Baggins is a healing guru and an experienced PVE and PVP player, who prides himself on his welcoming, relaxed videos where many new and established New World players drop by to improve their gameplay.

Join Baggins and the Runners of Aeternum this week to take on an epic quest to visit all the most famous animals in Aeternum.

When: May 15, 12PM PT (7PM UTC)


How to Participate: Tune in to BagginsTV channel on Twitch at start time to see the race route map. The race will be held on the worlds Maramma, Nysa, and El Dorado. Log in to your character on one of the participating worlds and meet at the starting point. Each world will have a team captain that will host their race. Be the first to visit Stanley, Nekumanesh, and pet Barkimedes, using the route presented on the stream, to win! All manual movement such as abilities or mounts is permitted, but teleports using shrines or recalls are not.

Player Spotlight

Get to know some of your fellow Adventurers throughout Community Convergence. Our first profile spotlights Newb World, a longtime player with passion for the story of Aeternum. Newb World covers lore, guides, and unique community events on their YouTube channel. When they’re not capturing footage for series like The Story of New World, they run dailies, work towards top tier trophies, or jump into any content depending on their mood. Here’s how Newb World found their niche on Aeternum.

Check back for the full interview on May 16.

XP Bonuses

Travel to the Eternal Isle each weekend for bonus XP events. Our first bonus will run from May 17 (9AM PT) until May 20 (9AM PT). It includes double Gathering (Fishing, Harvesting, Logging, Mining, Skinning) XP and Character XP.

Thank you for joining the event! Check back next Monday for a glimpse into upcoming activities. We’ll see you in Aeternum.
