Dungeon Key Changes Update

mimicking#6533 mimicking Posts: 80 Member, Cryptic Developer Cryptic Developer
Greetings adventurers! I just wanted to give you all an update on the Dungeon key changes. After a lot of review and planning, we’ve completed all the updates, changes and fixes, all of which are now being tested in house.
After the new year, and once we get the green light from QA , we’ll be putting the updates on (preview) for all to try out and give feedback. When we do, I’ll give as full a layout as I can on what changes were made. For now I can tell you that we’ve made huge changes in the rewards tables, both in drop rates and in adding in lots of new gear and items.

“WHAT? – More gear?! Cool but my bags are already brimming! “

Working on the changes, and listening to your feedback we also have added in a new tab. We call it Useful Items, what you have been calling “keyring” It’s a new tab in the inventory where you can keep all your keys. Keys that take up space; space you’ll need for loot!
We know (hopefully) you’ll have lots of questions about this; once we get ready to put this up on preview we’ll roll out more details and answer questions then.
Thanks and thanks again for your previous feedback and in helping us make Neverwinter be the game you want to play.

Regards,
Thomas “Mimic King” Foss

    Nice update. Thanks!

    Awesome update! I'm looking forward to checking out the changes (and the Useful Items tab!) on Preview next year.

    Suggestion for a Zen Store or Tradebar item to further help with inventory: Token to upgrade existing bags to a larger capacity, priced in-line with current Zen/Slot.

    great news! to follow up on what kreatyve, here are some other items:

    1. Quest items (they drop alot in SKT and SoMI)
    2. Event items (fish/special refinement items like simral, etc)
    3. Specific campaign items (trowel, boat, pick, relics)

    Consider adding tabs to it that you can unlock with AD and include fashion/refinement. We need more space and you all need more cashflow

    Could we possibly put other things besides keys in that "Useful Items" tab? Things like fishing poles (which most people have 2 of), our boat for SoMI, maybe a few other items that everyone has to carry on them at all times?

    Yup, and relic shovels, Black Ice Picks, I have the zen variant, so wont discard them and yet... the bag space...

    Is there any way you could bring in a way of sorting all of your carry luggage at once , rather than separate bags. This is my most frustrating thing about the game . If we were to buy slots , rather than bags we could sort the whole thing at once. and a "sort by" tab. Otherwise , thanks for the hopefully good news.

    I knew I was forgetting things! Also - the thrones! There are now 4 of them, and if you want to keep them with you, that's 4 bag slots. :(

    Hi :),

    Yes, that's nice, but the problem is not only the keys. Sometimes the inventory is full of quest items, items needed 4 crafting or similar (like trowels, rods,...)... and if i stop to think my main problem is 200 different kind of refining stones, enchantments everywhere occupying more than the 50% of my inventory, not speaking of shards and all this kind of things. Sorry to say, bad problem 4 me (where do i keep all those stones/similar if i don't wanna use them at that certain moment?) as this of keys...

    So i would ask u, those who can make this kind of things possible: would it be possible to add another extra tab where, at least, refinement stones, enchantments, shards were?

    It's just an idea. Thx in advance :),

    Well, it's a nice start. Let's see the real changes when it goes to preview.

    Now now, I said no questions- far too close to Christmas to be asking such questions :)

    I'd pay AD/Zen for a fashion tab. One of my characters is doing all the mastercrafting. that's ultimately 16 fashion pieces I worked damn hard for, and can't get back if I throw them out. My poor bank.

    I'm slowly losing hope on that one, it simply can't be that difficult to find a way to throw it into the game :(
  • cliffordtxcliffordtx Posts: 23Member Arc User
    Key ring is a start. I think simplifying binding would help quite a bit. I'd like to see just 2 levels of binding, BoA and unbound. Having 3 of each refinement item takes up a lot of space, as well as the other bound items. BoA would be nice for people that want to try new builds and trade them their main's unused equipment. BoA would still keep items off the Auction House if you need to. That's my two coppers.

    Wouldn't it make more sense just to expand bag space by 4 bags to a total of 10 bags?

    Okay, okay, I know the King said no questions, but I'd also like to *request* or hope-like-anything that "useful items" includes not just our tools but also all quest items, of which I tend to have many.

    Looking forward to seeing how it turns out in practice. Thank you for the update. We've been anxiously awaiting word on the future direction of the game, and this definitely hits on some of the things we've been wishing for.

    @mimicking#6533

    Thank you for the update. However, we haven't received a real christmas gift yet. What if you give us a riddle or something similar that will hint us a bit about the new module or an incoming feature? Just to increase the hype.

    IS the loot still going to be garbage? Been playing since Xbox launch, I've never got an artifact drop, and I had to drop millions to get an epic mount. How about some details about the loot please?

    Forward progress, as the NFL would say :wink:

    A simple thing that would be really nice would be if these Winter Festival scarves would stack. I mean, I can stack them in my dresser drawer, so what's the big deal?

    The issue with bag space is not even touched if not looking at all the different refining items. Secondly it is fashion items. How many are running around with a bunch of keys anyways? It is way to many different types of them, yes. But, the problem with all the different kind of keys is not that they are taking up bag space.

    If I didn't have ZEN keys and VIP keys, I probably wouldn't do dungeons at all. The keys are hidden behind campaign daylies that I have done over and over to grind boons, then over and over to grind Stronghold, then over and over to grind boons agaim for alts. The rewards from the dungeons are going to have to be pretty good if you gonna make me do it again for the keys before each dungeon that I do.

    Still, thumbs up for listening and showing us you care and wanting to improve quality of life for us beaten poor adventurers. ^^

    In a sense that's six of one, half a dozen of the other. However, I like the idea of being able to upgrade the free, relatively small bags for a (reasonable) fraction of what an equivalent full-size bag would cost.

    I would love to see a special tab for our PVP gear and the many armor sets we have to carry around currently.

    The human race is a herd.
