  • I'm curious, if anyone knows. Weeks 3 and 4 both have "Complete Making Naughty Nice 5 times" missions. Does the Week 3 one go away when Week 4 starts, or will you be able to complete both of them at the same time? The latter would be helpful since Week 3 is the week of Christmas itself!
  • I'll try it! But from what I understand, the Master Costumer winner title would either be granted from the prize box when they send you your reward, or be a claimable item in the Zen Store Bonus tab.
  • That'd be a good choice! Dip into the Vibora Bay characters more, especially since I feel like they've done all the Champions and several of the big villains (they've done Dr. Destroyer twice now!). Like otherwise I'm not even sure what we'd get. Retro VIPER? The hair would be a great addition, and yeah, a new set of…
  • I'd at least like some kind of SCR currency trade option. Like say 5 Silver Champion tokens for 1 Gold Champion. That'd still take a good, long time to get the 100-250 you need per item/unlock.
  • I just got it too! I tried throwing the taco without attacking him a few times, with no luck. At the maybe fifth or six time I saw him, I attacked him a couple times and then threw, and got it, so it just... seems to be random?
  • So I was dumb and saved up a bit too much favor on one character, does anyone remember if the previous weekly stores (travel powers, hideouts, archetypes) rerun when they bring all the event stores back at the end of the year? Because I've got a lot of leftover tokens and nothing I really want to use it on now!
  • I still think removing emotes from the event store was a genuine mistake, even putting aside my bias, heh. I legitimately grinded out the 150 or so event tokens on 10 characters to get the emotes account-unlocked. Some events it's easier to get that much than others, but still, that's a decent chunk of extra playtime. On…
  • That's a good point! Since there's no "topless" option for obvious reasons, the suits are gonna have to be layered over the existing bikini tops, so I don't think there's a way to actually have a strapless top.
  • I kind of forget, is the Training Event a one-week thing, or did they change it to two weeks? Obviously hoping the latter, heh. Also I'm guessing you won't be able to get all three of those parts with one 40? Maybe at least 2/3?
  • It's weird to me that since they're getting rid of the Lemurian Rampage (or just revamping it? Not sure), they didn't just re-use the Harbinger as the Unknowable One. Slap the Eerie Presence/Ghost effect on it and bam, creepy Cthulian monster. Honestly I don't mind the ghost shark because I have very low standards for…
  • My guess is it's a little more complicated than most things to add to FM, because, from what I understand, the timers during the timed parts actually do take the cutscenes into account, so just skipping the cutscene would give the players an extra however many seconds. Not really a terrible thing, really, but that would…
  • IN the rampage, okay, that's why I couldn't find it! Thanks!
  • Hrm. Well, I've never earned a Gold Champion token, so I guess that's more stuff I'll never see, luckily it's nothing super-nice. In more important areas, anyone found the Easter egg in the new mission yet? Also, I was surprised how quick the Rampage timer is to kick you out. I barely had time to listen to Ladyhawke's end…
  • One other thing that might be worth mentioning that might throw people for a loop the first couple times: during the second phase when the cubes spawn, usually you'll get three, one of each color, red, blue, yellow. But sometimes you'll get two of two colors, like two red and two yellow and no blue. So, remember to do a…
  • Or the poncho! I wish they were more consistent on putting these special parts into the event store the next time. Also really? So all the previous event currencies are still on the characters, and new ones added on every year? That feels like it's gonna cause problems eventually!
  • Ooh, I like that hairstyle. This might sound weird but I really like how... "undetailed" it is? Like, a lot of newer hairstyles look really good with great textures and modeling... so good that they actually look kind of too good compared to the rest of the character, and means it's really hard to combo with older hairs!…
  • Is there a reason you guys removed the Vehicles from the Nightmare event store for this Reprint event? I still have a ton of Elysium coins from the bait-and-switch "Unlock the Unnerved emote for 2000 coins except we'll remove that option next time it comes around in case you were saving up" and now there's... nothing to…
  • Just to check, there are still only 7/13 creepies found, right? The Creepy Guide thread only shows the first four QWZ ones. Then there's the Fenny, the Teddy, and the Virus Socrates? I don't know if this has been tossed out, but Cheshire being a red wolf made me think of Black Fang, another red-headed wolf. Then that thing…
  • Yeah... the current devs seem unable (maybe unwilling, but I'd assume not) to even delete a couple doors to let us walk into the blocked-off areas of the hideouts we have.
  • I suspect it was definitely made to be really hard, yeah. I think an ulterior motive was to slow down people doing Vigilance on a bunch of characters; I know I cut down how many characters I run through them solely because I don't want to do STE more than half a dozen times, heh. Weirdly, I've been having good runs lately,…
  • Thanks for this! It's really neat, and I'd love to see more of this sort of thing. Not to sound all "get an inch, want a mile", but would it be possible to get the Salem House as a social zone too? It's really great for haunted houses, fancy mansions, I think there's a ballroom, a little theater....
  • Yeah, I was specifically thinking of the Mecha Claws Dr. Octopus tentacles, surprised they're not like that!
  • Yeah, the Idle Zombie emotes seem to take ten minutes or more to actually count as unlocked, you get the perk and the progress towards the account unlock, but the character doesn't actually get the emote.
  • Yes! With the Ghost or Shadow or Psionic material or something it'd also make a fun genie smoke tail thing. And maybe throw a fin option on the end for mermaids! Also, "Event Perks that required you to trade in costumes now check to see if you have them unlocked instead." That's a great change! Just for clarity, is this…
  • Preeeetty sure it's just a big coincidence but it is a gloomy trend, heh. Death Rattle is because it involved the Cobra Lords (Rattle like a Rattlesnake, you know), 11th Hour and the Last Moment because the theme they picked for 11 was "11 o'clock/1 hour to midnight" I guess (like the 9th anniversary's theme was cats/9…
  • It's still a relatively new thing as of this year, so we're not entirely sure yet. So far for the events that ran multiple times this year, the answer seems to be "you just can't get them." My guess/hope is they'll eventually be added to the event stores, though!
  • Even the emblem seems too rare; I have yet to see the boots or the emblem even on the auction house. They're like, Overalls rare.
  • Actually, every "lockbox show-off NPC" has a bio you can talk to them to read. Unfortunately, I don't really remember his, and this game doesn't have a supported wiki where someone might've posted it. So as far as I'm aware, the bios are gone for good. :/
  • I'm not gonna get involved in the whole "elites vs. casual" thing. I suck at this game and don't have great builds and I'm happy with Heroic gear and I'm fine with that. I accept that there's content that's just out of my league and not meant for me. But could we please have the ability to like... maybe buy 1 Gold Champion…
  • Except they'll probably release two more emotes next time... which means you'd then need to level three characters to 40... Nope, it's mentioned that the three tokens you get will be wiped a week after the event ends. I... dunno. This feels ridiculously stingy. I mean, putting this out literally right after a two-week…
  • Will there be a way to exchange tokens from previous runs for the new one? Like, if I have 2 saved up from the last run because I ran out of Exclusive costume parts to buy, would I be able to use them to buy the new emotes?
  • Oh, wait, are the vehicles character-bound? Usually event vehicles are account-bound.
  • Eh, I don't think it really means anything. The two-week span roughly matches up with how long people are saying the coronavirus quarantine should last, so I think they're just giving us something to do while a lot of us are stuck home. Heck, the "prepare for heroics this weekend" almost implies something will be starting…
  • So I feel like every time this alert comes around we should make a bunch of threads about it until they fix the darn thing, but odds are they'd just delete them all, so I'll post here, heh. Besides the ridiculous spawn rates and aggro range that are mentioned, I feel like they've added a new fun little problem where you…
  • I think it's just random, I wouldn't get too paranoid. I was in STO and could see a CO friend log on. I could even see someone in CO chatting in a channel we're both in. And a friend in CO could see me in STO. While in STO, however, I could not see a friend on in Neverwinter, but my friend in CO could.
  • High Noon usually runs more than once a year, though, and it's usually a two-week event, so we'll probably see it again with one or two more new things. Hopefully they revert the whole "removed emotes from the store" thing, though. I love collecting emotes on my characters and it really, really sucks that the only time I…
  • Yeah I got the bug where I was getting kicked out of Smash alerts maybe... 1/9 alerts, 1/12, common enough to be kind of annoying. The fact that alerts were popping so much more often made up for it for me personally, but I can see why you guys would rather get it fixed.
  • So I do want to say something positive since my earlier post was mostly my complaint about removing the emotes from the store. Other than that which I still 100% believe needs to be reverted... the High Noon redesign is actually really nice. Removing the "Defeat 50 robots" mission removes a big part of the tedium,…
  • Okay, who keeps wishing on a friggin' monkey's paw? I was actually totally up for grinding the event to get the emotes on 10 characters, but now the only way I'll get them is to buy them on the Auction House. Fun. To be fair, these little story missions they've been adding take like fifteen minutes, maybe a half hour at…
  • Did they remove the emotes from the event store? There's no patch note about it, only that they're available as drops from the open mission (which has always been true for event emotes). Really hope that's not changing!
  • Assuming it hasn't changed from previous times (I don't see why it would), you literally just have to enter the Theater and hang around a few seconds to get the title and emote. Now, the title is a character unlock. Also, they're pretty strict on the time. After the CC ends, the giveaway seems to go away quick. But the CC…
  • I know this isn't usually the kind of thing that gets changed, but would you guys consider dropping the price for the Account Unlock emotes by a bit if you notice not many are getting it? I understand it's not supposed to be easy to get, but with the changes to only being able to do the Colossus event three times a day...…
  • Would anyone mind posting a preview pic of the costume parts that aren't live yet (the Polar Bear head, ice sword, Eclipse emblem, and Shisa)? Thank you and Merry Holidays!
  • So what's Regal Flight? Is it Stoic Flight without the FX?
  • Actually yeah, with the favor wipe change, it would be nice of them to change auras back to account-bound. Or bring back the NPC that lets you box auras up in an account-bound crate for an extra 100 favor that can be put in your account bank; I dunno whatever happened to that NPC.
  • Yeah, that's definitely why it doesn't bother me. We get like 1-2 new parts a week for events now, it's a pretty reasonable "grind". As for new players and the piles of older parts, didn't they say next year they're going to be putting some of those in the TPB store instead? Anyway, something I wanted to ask. Did they…
  • Yeah I definitely think we wouldn't be looking at this as such a bad change if like 70-80% of all the event costume parts they've added for a while now hadn't been the full 400-token price, literally half the cap. So if they're more willing to release items at the cheaper price point, as well as lowering the cost of the…
  • I hope by "revisiting event item costs and rewards" you mean cheaper items and more/the same rewards, but... I'm not hopeful, there. Also so like... all the tokens we've already put time into grinding out for future events are just going away with no compensation at all, right? That... sucks. I'd take even some silly…
  • Makes sense then, that in the alert, voice-wise he's depicted as a fancy Suthun' gentleman, ah do decleah. :p Pretty sure the Red Snake alert has intentionally-bad voice acting though, I think Cryptic was trying to make a joke about bad English dubs of old kung fu films.
  • Eesh. I fully support ways to bring the Questionite Exchange back down, but... these are priced high enough to stop more than a couple people from even thinking of picking these up. 500-750k, maaaybe. It's a shame, I actually would like RAD Sphere since it's a more subtle visual than the Hamster Roll, but... yeah.
