Neverwinter – Rothé Valley Lore Trailer & Screenshoots !

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us
April 25: Headstart for Hero of the North Founders
April 30: Neverwinter Open Beta

The battle to rebuild Neverwinter will take heroes to Rothé Valley, where the drow of House Xorlarrin are enslaving and killing anyone they can find. This high-level adventure zone will pit adventurers against the magical mastery and arachnid minions of the iconic dark elves.
Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

After Neverwinter was nearly destroyed, the fertile Rothé Valley became crucially important to feed the population that remained. The pastoral village became more and more important, but was remained a sleepy town – until the drow arrived.
Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

Corrupted by their goddess Lolth, Queen of Spiders, the drow build their cities deep below the surface, in the cold depths of the vast tunnels and caves of the Underdark. Far from prying eyes, their Houses wage war against each other in constant rivalries – and are usually too busy attacking each other to threaten the surface world with any real force.

The attack on Rothé Valley, though, seems to be deviating from that trend. The drow have conquered most of the valley instead of just raiding it, and there are rumors that slaves are constructing something on the surface. Spider webs choke the houses and buildings of the villages, and some scouts claim to have seen a purple web of magical power blotting out the sky.

So far, the scouts and soldiers of Neverwinter have been powerless to stop House Xorlarrin. Their priestesses’ spells ensnare enemies, and the spiders and slavers kill any who resist. If the city is to have any chance of survival, it will need heroes brave enough to stand against the minions of the Spider Queen…

Neverwinter – Great Weapon Fighter Montage

April 12-14: Beta Weekend Four
April 30: Neverwinter Open Beta

The Great Weapon Fighter is feared across the Forgotten Realms as a punishing damage-dealer — and sometimes reckless in battle. Leading the charge against Valindra Shadowmantle, the valiant fighter only needs a sharp two-handed weapon and a vast skillset to dominate enemies. Will you play a Great Weapon Fighter in Neverwinter?

Neverwinter Free-to-Play MMO – Character Progression Dev Blog

The hero’s journey isn’t just a story arc – in Neverwinter, leveling up offers tons of chances to upgrade and customize your character. For Beta Weekend 4, starting 4/12, you’ll be able to pick your powers in a new point-buy system!

Power Choice

One of the biggest pieces of feedback we got was that, although a lot of other elements were customizable, D&D veterans wanted to have more say in the powers they got at each level. Previously, powers unlocked or upgraded at certain levels; players got to choose which powers to equip, not which ones to learn.

For inspiration, we looked at the way ability choice worked in pen and paper D&D, and combined it with our MMO experience. What we’ve emerged with is a new power choice system that we’ll be debuting in Beta Weekend #4, and it’ll give you more chances to customize your character than ever before.

Right out of the tutorial, you’ll have access to five or so powers. At each milestone level after that, more powers will be unlockable.

You’ll get power points at each level that you can use to get powers. Each point will either unlock or upgrade a power, up to Rank 3. You’ll need to have spent a certain amount of points in order to start investing in higher tiers of powers. By the endgame, you’ll have 60 power points, roughly a dozen points shy of maxing out everything.
