Well met, adventurers,
Similar to our efforts to hinder the spammers on PlayStation®4, we’ll be implementing a few rules to PC that will make it more difficult for them to function and harass legitimate players. While we can’t share the specifics of these changes, new characters will be subject to the following restrictions until you have progressed a certain amount in the main quests:
- No ability to use the AD Exchange
- No ability to perform in-person trades
- No ability to send a mail message that contains items
- No ability to post a message to Say, Trade, Zone, and LFG chat
- No ability to use “Say” in static zones
- No ability to post on the Auction House
We’d like to note that these barriers of entry are quite low, meaning you’ll only need to play for a few hours before being able to perform the functions stated above. This is to ensure legitimate players are affected as little as possible with these changes.
We’re also currently in the process of evaluating the rules we set - whether by tweaking, adding, or removing - in order to provide a smoother experience for new players while blocking gold spammers. We’ll monitor the results of these new changes in the coming days to judge whether they need adjusting.
Characters that were created before 8/25 at 8AM PT will not be affected by these rules in order to avoid any confusion.
Lastly, if you see these spammers in-game at any time, do NOT contact or purchase from them. Doing so puts your account security at risk in addition to other players. Astral Diamonds sold by these sites are often acquired by compromising another player’s account, or even yours! These sites are not condoned by any member of the Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment team.
We thank you for continuing to support Neverwinter and wish for your future adventures to stray clear from any evil magic.
