Some Interesting Facts About Neverwinter


  • The near 18 million players amount to 775 times the population of Neverwinter (not counting the kobolds in the sewers, of course).
  • Players have died 202 million times (as of the stat reveal this morning). I’m sure I account for at least 1 percent of this.
  • More than 14,000 people have created their takes on the famous Dark Elf Ranger, Drizzt. Sounds like some old D&D groups I’ve played in.
  • The deadliest dungeon is the Temple of Lostmauth, which is part of the Tyranny of Dragons module. The boss is a gigantic red dragon, Lostmauth. I’ve died here, too. (More than once.)
  • We’ve killed more than 6.5 million dragons.
  • Neverwinter now has 325,000 guilds. I still prefer to play alone (no, I do not call my character the “Lone Ranger.” Well, not often…)
  • We’ve slaughtered 63 million monsters, with Devils being the most-killed type of monster. Undead follow.
  • Humans are the most popular race. I prefer Tieflings, the second-most popular race. Wood Elves are third (hey, that’s me!).
  • Great Weapon Fighter is the most popular class, followed by Trickster Rogue and Hunter Ranger (guess I’m the hipster adventurer with my Scourge Warlock and Control Wizard. At least I’m not a murder hobo).

Minutes of the June 4, 2018 Alliance Council Meeting

1)  A message should be sent to the guild members about the use of their own guild title.

2)  Each guild designee is to send an in-game mail to MrsToons @blondetoon to identify who gets mail for their guild.

3)  The inactivity of the new Cult of Luna (CoL) was discussed. There were mixed feelings about removing them for this reason. The Council decided that Fen'nik is to inform CoL's GM of the lack of activity issue and issue warning a warning about removal from the Alliance.

4) Feygorn and MrsToons will prepare the notes from this meeting and put together "draft" protocols for kicking and inviting guilds to the Alliance based on these discussions.

5)  The alliance has no guild with the Explorer's Guild building. This is an important structure for players who do the masterwork professions or anyone who wants to make extra AD by opening scroll cases.  The Neverwinter Geeks are willing to build the Explorer's Guild to benefit the Alliance should the Council agree to help raise the necessary resources.  Feygorn will oversee this process.

6) The next regularly scheduled Alliance Council meeting is July 2, 2018 at 4PM EDT.

Respectfully submitted,
Mrs Toons and Feygorn

Quartermaster & Dragon's Hoard Enchantments

With these two types of enchantments in your five utility slots you can start to collect lots of refinement points (RP).  I like to run with three quartermasters and two dragon hoards.  you can purchase both off the auction house.  You can also obtain quartermasters during certain CTA events throughout the year.  You can also make dragon hoards in the Tyranny of Dragons: Well of Dragons campaign (go up the tree one level, turn right).  Get your quartermaster's first, they yield better rewards!  Be sure to immediately go to your inventory and right click them and "Mark as Protected" so you don't accidentally refine them.

Lastly, here is the key information on each and a super useful video at the end.  You will see in the video 1200 bags are going to be opened.  This is not uncommon!  Watch and see what kinds of rewards are given.  ALWAYS, ALWAYS, wait for the 2X Refining events to open them and get the double the rewards.


Quartermaster's Enchantment (Second Generation)

When applied to an item:

Utility Slot: You have X% chance after killing a foe to find a bag of goods.  Mutliple copies and higher ranks of this enchantment increase the chance of finding a bag of goods, and improve the quality of the goods found, including Refinement items, Campaign currencies, and Enchantments up to Rank 7 (bound when awarded).  You do not have to pick up these rewards off the ground, they automatically appear in your inventory when awarded!

Quartermaster's Enchantment, Rank 12 YIELDS 3.5% chance each.
3.5% x 3 enchants = 10.5%

This is the magic percentage, 10.5%, because that's when rank 7 enchantments have a chance to drop.  So keep ranking them up to at least rank 12, until then BORROW someone's level 12's when OPENING your spoils of war and other bags.  It is when you open them that you need 10.5%.  Thus, you can be a lower percentage while collecting them.  When borrowing be sure to immediately go to your inventory and right click them and "Mark as Protected" so you don't accidentally refine them.

Dragon's Hoard Enchantment (First Generation)

When applied to an item:

Utility Slot:  You have a X% chance after killing a foe to find a jewel at your feel.  Multiple copies of this Enchantment increase the chance of a find (so you do have to pick up the reward off the ground).
There is no magical percentage, the higher the percentage the more often a reward drops.

Astral Diamonds Smackdown

Astral Diamonds Smackdown!

Updated April 28, 2018


MAJOR UPDATE within the next two sections.  I will plan on updating this article periodically while we all adjust to the new mod.  There are many ways to make AD, and if you can do the daily methods below every day, and the weekly each week, you can easily make at least 1,000,000 AD per month, more if you really push it and farm.  This is accomplished by earning the AD with the daily, weekly, salvage, seal methods below.

FIRST THINGS FIRST
When you load up your game, it is highly recommend that you:
  1. Stop by the stronghold, pick up the following.  Our strategy has changed, we are after as many guild marks as possible.  More on this below.
    1. Builder daily quests
    2. Coin Master daily quests (directly in front of zoning in point)
    3. Ranger daily quests (west side of fountain)
    4. Cleric random quests (on the left behind the fountain)
  2. After picking these up, go to Protector Enclave and visit the Dungeon Chest Keymaster, Amario Clavus.  He is located to the right of the northwest entrance of the Seven Suns Coster Market.  Obtain your free daily Dungeon Chest Key from him.
