Equipment (aka “eq” or “gear”)
Once a player hits level 70 in my guild, they are usually quickly handed a set of Chult Weapons and a set of League's Elite gear, as it can be crafted by those that have acquired the recipes from Chult. The items can also be bought from the AH for relatively cheap.
The ease of acquiring these items leave them asking “ok, thanks for the gear, now how do I get better gear? What content should I be running?”
Welcome to this years Simril! Its one of the main seasonal events that happens in Neverwinter. After having gone through a few, we've uncovered a few tips that may come in handy before the end. This won't be a comprehensive guide to everything, just an important tip on the gifts.
So grab your presents and lets take a look!
Our recent AD guide mentions alts as a possible income supplement. Among other things this will fill the details out a bit more.
Neverwinter starts out by giving us all 2 free character slots. You can buy up to a total of 50 slots. Now thats a lot of character slots. That kind of army may be kind of rare nowadays, but somewhere in the middle it can be useful without taking up all your time, or involving you in any kind of banned activity.
Our earlier post on AD is over a year old now! ..and its get a bit tired, and in need of an update given all the changes that have been introduced since then. ..and here it is!
All in all a similar amount of daily AD per character is available. It does seem a bit harder to get to today than it was last time we covered this topic. Some of the old habits were downgraded and more hoops were added. There isn't 1 way to make quick AD with little work, and if you've found one take advantage of it as its lifetime will almost certainly be short.
In the range of 40k AD per day on a level 70 character is doable by a casual player in a reasonable time. Greater sums are available depending on the amount of organization, time, and work you want to dedicate to it.
The old post is left up for historical accuracy. The parts that no longer apply wont appear here.
Theres a question that has come up lately more and more that should be addressed. Where do I find information on this game? Sometimes those of us that are deep into the game don't even recognize how obscure some of this information is. Hopefully this will help just a bit.
1. First of all, most of you reading this have a guild. Hopefully Forsaken-Souls. :p That really is your quickest and most up to date source for information. Even if those in the guild don't have the answer right away they can likely point you in the right direction, and there are several in our guild that will start up the search as soon as they discover a piece of trivia they don't already know.
Feel free to ask questions. Helping out is fun for many of us, and makes the hours of work put into testing and exploring our characters seem a bit more worthwhile. We can also point you to resources that we have, like the links in our Discord server that might be useful for answering your questions.
The recent announcements for changes to Neverwinter should serve as a warning and a lesson to other games as to how not to treat its playerbase. Now on the verge of mod 12b Neverwinter is facing another exodus of players the likes of which it hasn't seen for years.
..and its all been absolutely avoidable.
There are a few maps that indicate where lures and hunts can be found. We have this page marked in our Discord, and here is the page so you can bring them up.
Step 1: The lures.
We can all find the first level of lures, regardless of where we are in the campaign. There are 3 levels to get, each one setting up the fight for the next. To get gear one must work their way up through all 3 levels of the hunt, building lures as they drop along the way. This means we're going to need a LOT of the base level lures.
Where to get them? Check out the maps linked above to see the locations. Note however that the creatures that carry them don't always load in those areas. For example, most often chultan tigers load together in a spot. Sometimes Smilodons will load instead, and when they do you have a chance at getting the trophy from them. See the trophy list below to see what loads together in each spot. We will need a LOT of hunting for trophy's, especially Trex fangs.
The Summer Festival is here! This post is done in hopes of helping you make the most of this event. It may not seem like theres a lot there at first glance. In fact this is one of the major events of the year and can be the source of huge prizes. Hopefully the following guide will help you on your way.
The Underdark was mod 8 in Neverwinter, and now that we're moving up next to mod 12 its getting a bit harder to complete easily. Its still got some kick left in it with the rings available still ringing up as some of the best in the game.
Skirmishes are slower to queue. The justifiably criticized key changes known as 'keygate', have made those skirmishes so unrewarding that they are often not worth doing at all. This is considering the cost of keys in the campaign, and that it takes 20 minutes or so to finish one.
What to do? Ill explain my strategy for finishing this in the modern game:
Welcome to Summer in Neverwinter!
Jubilee is Neverwinters anniversary celebration, this time around marking 4 years. As with many of our major events that is a lot to be accomplished, and often it isn't clear how to do it. This post will hopefully clarify that a little bit.
There are some neat looking new prizes this year:
We'll outline how to get these prizes after the break.
