If you’re looking for rivercress in New World, then luckily this magical plant is fairly easy to locate – the clue is in the name. That’s right, rivercress can be found near rivers and waterfalls; they are a pale, luminescent blue plant, with a floating, bubble-like body.

If you’re currently on the Weakness of the Ego quest, you need to collect rivercress stems – rivercress can be farmed for stems, leaves, flowers, and water motes. To harvest rivercress you need to be harvesting skill level 30 or higher and have a sickle equipped.

For the same quest, you also need to find petal cap locations in New World – these can be found by harvesting (at any level) fronded petalcaps, which look like a cluster of unripe bananas with a glowing sprig sticking out the middle. Petal caps can also be used to craft potions, corruption tinctures, and dyes. Here’s where to find both rivercress and petal caps in New World for the Weakness of the Ego quest.
