New World Sliver of Adderstone - How to get Sliver of Adderstone
Sliver of Adderstone comes from boulders, which are dotted all across Aeternum, but there’s more to it than just swinging your pickaxe. Despite only being uncommon in rarity, Sliver of Adderstone is one of the rarer ores — so rare, it might even be bugged.
Some players believe the drop rate is suspiciously low for an ore of that rarity. An hour of mining with high-ranking mining gear and perks can yield as little as three or four Sliver of Adderstone.
As with any rare item in New World, you can try finding Sliver of Adderstone at trading posts. There seems to be a lack of the item available for now, likely given its rarity and usefulness, so you may have to fork over quite a few coins to get it.

Bugged or not, there are a few ways to increase your Sliver of Adderstone acquisition rate. As with any mining expedition, you should eat a meal from the potatoes family to boost mining luck. Wear armor and accessories with mining luck perks attached, use a high-grade pickaxe, and, if you have it, equip the mining armor.
Mining armor is a set with pieces that may drop from enemies level 20 and higher. Some have reported receiving the pieces, mainly the Miner’s Hat, from quests, though we’ve not verified which missions award that just yet.
