Acquisitions Inc book comes out June 18th!

The D&D book I helped write has been announced, with increasing amounts of information as it gets closer to the release date of June 18th! This is, without a doubt, the coolest project I've done! I've had some of my official work printed before as adventures, but this is the first time I've been...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

The last two dev blogs focused on character classes are out: Ranger Wizard Neither has super amazing details. The Ranger has two paths, Hunter and Warden. Both can be a mix of ranged and melee, but the Hunter can be all ranged and the Warden can be all melee. It sounds like Hunter has more of the tr...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

Back from vacation, and an official dev blog on the Lair of the Mad Mage dungeon dropped recently. As with previous end-mod dungeons, it spoils part of the official tabletop adventure. Therefore, this is a spoiler for anyone playing the Dungeon of the Mad Mage D&D adventure. You venture into Hal...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

A somewhat vague dev post on Mod 16 rewards . It's generally straightforward - new mod with new levels, so new rewards with new levels. They do say there are 5 new artifact sets. And, we can earn gear as we do the campaign. But, it looks like it takes rare drops to restore that gear we get. We will ...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

New dev blog on the Companion system. This covers much of what we've seen discussed in the videos above. They now use the term "Active Companion and Player Bonuses" for the six bonuses you get from your companions. You get one slot from your active companion, shown in purple. You get othe...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

Free Gear alert! I finally tried preview and the Undermountain quest. Before a single fight, you are granted a bunch of gear. Similar to Barovia (but even faster), you are granted gear to help you in case you are a new player. The gear includes: 5 Coalesced Magics (campaign currency), IL 644 rings, ...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

Just a quick post to acknowledge that the devs are patching up the preview server from time to time, and they do tweak all sorts of things, including class powers and the like. If you are ever curious, this link will show you the preview patches.

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

The NWO site continues to exist based on a few volunteers. Their latest article is an overview of the changes to game mechanics.

This is one where it is pretty well summarized. Head on over there for the read. It is a good and important review.

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

Rainer has two recent videos covering Mod 16 changes. First, he talks about new and replaced enchants/runestones . The following are no longer used, and can be turned in for something else: ⋅ Eldritch runestones (exchange for Bonding of same level) ⋅ Tranquil Enchantment (exchang...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

Two new Dev blogs detailing classes, the Fighter and Warlock. The Fighter blog talks about the fighter's blocking a lot, which is no revised to use up stamina and prevent hit point loss. The choice of paragon path is between Vanguard (stronger tank) and Dreadnaught (DPS). As a Vanguard your block is...
