Where to find sheep in World Order

Finding sheep can be extremely difficult in New World, but you’ll need to locate them if you wish to complete the Stonereach Hunt quest. 

New World’s brutal lands of Aeternum are filled with all kinds of deadly creatures and surviving can prove difficult, particularly for those that come unprepared. Just like most MMOs, New World requires players to craft, forage, and fight their way to the top of the food chain. 

While materials such as Fiber and Linen are a must for intrepid explorers, there is also another highly-coveted resource – sheep. Yes, sheep are one of the most difficult creatures to locate in the game, but you’ll need to track these elusive farmyard animals down if you wish to complete the Stonereach Hunt quest.


Where to find sheep in New World: All spawn locations

Sheep can be found near the mountain in Stonereach.

Finding sheep in New World may seem like an easy task at first, but their spawns are incredibly low. However, there is one method you can use to complete this pesky quest. 

  1. Select the Stonereach Hunt quest and follow the map marker.
  2. Head towards Camp Recall Point (Near the mountain with the broken tree).
  3. Kill the sheep and harvest its hide

If a sheep has yet to spawn at this location, then simply wait a few minutes for the spawn to reset. Only one sheep will spawn at a time, so you’ll need to be quick, as nearby players can actually poach the hide even if you successfully kill the sheep.
