Things are quiet for our guild with the approach of the holidays and all the busy times around them. It is however also the time for some of the biggest events and sales all year in Neverwinter. We'll see if we can take advantage of at least a few of them.
One upcoming event we are looking at is here in 42 days from the time of this posting, roughly from christmas through new years. This is the 'double power shards' event, and it includes double Conqueror Shards of Power as well.
These are the shards we worked so hard to gather about a month ago. Right now we are sitting 60 Stronghold Chests of Power away from another level in the Barracks. This will give us an additional 1000 power for everyone. During the event that shrinks to 30 chests, which is a reachable goal if enough of us pitch in.
There will be a countdown on the front page that will show how many chests are confirmed as being bought. If you decide to purchase one please tell Xael (@krzrsms) or Elynaen (@vixtra) in game so we can update the count.
As of the time of this posting they are selling in the AH for 160k (They're also on the Zen market). We just recently got out of an event that made them super pricey however. It wasn't unheard of before the stronghold event last week for the chests to sell for 130k. I would suggest waiting to see how some of these holiday sales work out to see if theres a really good deal on stronghold supplies like these chests.
Remember, do not open them until the event 12/25-1/2 !
We've achieved the original goal and more! So now we're moving on to see how far we can get into getting the conquest shards we need for the 3000 power level barracks boon. So many players have pitched in.. thank you all.
It looks like the AH price has gotten down to ~125k AD and the zen market has nearly everything for 40% off. Either one is a good choice.
