Neverwinter – Beta Weekend 4 Highlights !

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

Hey everyone,

Here are the major pieces of content that are being added into Beta Weekend 4 that were not available in Beta Weekend 3:

  • Professions

    • Leadership
      • An introductory profession that will get you accustomed to the system and rewards you with Astral Diamonds, XP, etc.
    • Tailoring, Leatherworking, Mailsmithing, and Platesmithing.
      • Each of these professions has its own set of materials that are required for advancement, as well as its own set of unique rewards.
  • Gateway

    • Players are now able to check on their characters from this site:https://gateway.playneverwinter.com/
    • Players are also able to view, post, and participate in auctions, as well as review and work on their professions!
  • Choose your powers!

    • Our new Power Choice system now allows players to earn and upgrade their path’s powers in the order of their choosing!
    • Starting at level 5, players will get one point per level, which can be used to rank up an owned power or earn a new power.
    • Powers can have up to 3 ranks, and gain bonuses per rank (e.g. +10% damage).
    • Rank 3 is locked until 30 points are spent (including the auto-purchased level 1-5 points).
    • With this change in how powers are earned, all existing characters will have their powers reset. A window will pop up to guide the player to the Power Choice UI (the same place as the previous Power UI).
    • Further respecs can be done using tokens purchased in the Zen Market.
  • Injury System

    • The Injury System has been added.
    • When player characters are killed in PvE, they will gain a random injury.
    • Injuries cause different effects, depending on the area that is injured. For example, a head injury may increase cooldown time on Encounter powers.
    • Players may purchase Injury Kits at any Consumables vendor for copper. Major injuries require more expensive kits, but major injuries will not occur below a certain level.
    • Injuries are not taken if players are near death and saved by an ally.
    • Injuries are not taken in PvP.
    • If players cannot afford (or do not wish to pay for) Injury Kits, they may rest at a campfire. 5 minutes at a campfire will remove one injury.
  • Race and Class Quests

    • Some of those not-so-talkative NPCs scattered throughout Neverwinter are now offering quests to players of certain classes or races!
    • Each race has a storyline that tells the story of that race in Neverwinter and the areas around.
    • Each class has a storyline that shows the roles and views of that class in its adventures.
    • The first arc for each race and class starts anywhere from Blacklake to Tower District. All classes and races have a similar amount of quests, but those quests are given at different times.
    • Players should receive mail letting them know when they qualify for a quest, and where they can find it.
  • Sidequests

    • Each zone has had some sidequests added.
    • These quests are intended to provide some extra experience if the player needs it. They are fully optional.
    • Some should provide a bit more of the well-loved Forgotten Realms flavor, while others allow a deeper look into the story.
  • The Alterer

    • Players may now change the appearance of their characters!
    • Jyllian, the Alteration Wizard, has set up shop in Protector’s Enclave.
    • Look for the scissors-and-comb icon on the map for the Tower of Alteration.
    • We expect the icon to change in the future.
    • Changing appearance costs one Change Appearance Token, which can be purchased on the Zen Market.
    • Change Appearance can change anything in the Appearance section of character creation, like hair, skin color, tattoos, scars, and body and face sliders.
    • Change Appearance cannot change players’ race, class, or gender.
  • Default Settings
    • A major update has been made to default settings.
    • In the process, we have reset the settings of all players to their defaults.

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.
