Hey gang! This is something I do over on STO, and I'm bringing it over here. This thread will be updated with the sort of short news items that you would find on NW social media - it makes it easier to have everything in one place instead of forty million threads for things like this. Our first example is below!

    Adventurers - you'll see this in the patch notes tonight, but we wanted to give you a heads up: The Minotaur companion will launch tomorrow granting 1500 item level, instead of the intended 750. This will be fixed in an upcoming patch.

    Adventurers - there's an issue with the Zen Market on Xbox that we're investigating. In the meantime, please purchase your Zen on the Microsoft Store instead.

    Update: If you were experiencing this issue, it should be fixed now, but you'll have to close and relaunch the game.

    Brett Norton, Executive Producer:

    Hello Neverwinter!

    We are aware there are issues with Shield stacking mechanics and companions. We're working on a fix that will standardize non-player sources of Shields and make the rules more consistent on how they stack.

    In general, we want companion shields to be a valuable resource, but keeping in line with our recent goals, we don't want them to dominate companion choice. We'll be changing the stacking rules such that any companion shield does not stack with other companion shields (or itself), but they will stack with player-provided shields. Having a companion-provided shield will be good, and having more than one might increase uptime, but more than one source won't increase your maximum durability.

    We'll be making some adjustments to other non-player provided shields, namely the Swift Golden Lion's Aureal Armament, to try and improve its value as well.

    We apologize for the issues on live and hope to have this update deployed soon.

    Thank you for playing Neverwinter!

    ...in all seriousness, there's a bug with our broadcast system this morning, and you may get our gratitude a bunch of times. We're working on fixing it.

    Greetings Adventurers! A recent change to some powers caused Tower of the Mad Mage to be far too fond of defenestration. We're temporarily disabling the queue until we have a fix. Thanks for your patience!

    Hello Adventurers!

    We can confirm that Master Abyssal Gear is currently dropping less frequently than expected in the Master Demonweb Pits dungeon. An update is in the works to address this, and will substantially increase drop rates.

    We are also aware that the Realm Engine Core artifact set is not appearing as expected. An update for this artifact set is also coming in the near future.

    We thank you for your patience, and we hope to have fixes deployed swiftly.

    We are aware of an issue preventing the Legendary and Epic rings from dropping in the Advanced version of the Demonweb Pits dungeon. We hope to have a fix deployed soon.
