    Someone should make a drinking game for these... like take a sip whenever you hear "roadmap", "moving forward", "excited", "Chris", "develop", "create", "discussion", "Neverwinter" etc.

    Wait no, that might make viewers hammered with just the introductory statements. =P

    Also I second thefiresidecat's request for a transcript afterwards mainly because I'm not going to be able to watch it.

    I thought about editing my comment to include and for people unable to make it. but they do normally have a video of streams you can watch later.

    Hmm, I know that's not a complete picture but there doesn't seem to be enough events within this year to win the legendary mount advertised from Hellpit (oh, unless the currency is going into the siege event, masq and winter fest as well as "new event"). I hope that hasn't been forgotten.

    Also, what's the difference between Zariel Trial and Zariel Story Mode? Am I right in guessing the second one is for solo players? That would be really cool.
    If you can't stand on a chest, it is a mimic!

    that's a high level roadmap not calendar. I'm sure we will have plenty of hellpit events. it looks like they're just calling out the remastered events. not all the events.

    More scaling, more cutscenes added to dungeons.. This roadmap shows they know exactly what we want.

    Hi Joseph,

    This is a development road map and not our live calendar which contains our ‘event’ schedule. I hope that makes sense.

    Story mode is the trial with reduced challenge and related rewards.

    Thanks

    Chris

    > @hustin1 said: I have to say that I'm not very confident about seeing the side areas unblocked, even though the effort would be minimal. The one dev who was sitting on the right seemed overly concerned about metrics about dungeon running time and how many players would visit those areas. Metrics can only tell you what players do; not *why* they do it, and it seems to me that much more important than metrics is the question, "does this make the dungeon more fun?"


    The big gap between a rational and emotional approach, I would assume, only that one is needed more for this job I presume.
    I mean, that's what has been so hard to explain with the M16 changes, because if I was a more rational person I could see the pros of getting rid of a in various ways broken system of powershare/overpowered (de)buffing for example, but all I can often see is: <font color="orange">HAMSTER</font> I had a lot of fun.
    Fun is hard to measure and something else for everybody. Data isn't.

    But man I had the most fun in the most absurd rubs, not in enforced trinity so and so k IL runs.

    Very well said. My very first run of FBI when it launched on console - no tank. A MSPC, no healer. Many other examples of dungeon runs that occurred that were a blast. Good fun stuff, that no longer occurs.

    no new masterwork til sept? ouch. it would be nice if that could be moved way up. that's over a year of dead professions. it would really help the economy to bring that faster.

    Cut scenes are awesome. Scaling sucks

    Where are the Hell pit events ? Nobody told us we had to run 5 to have the mount, yet nobody told us when the next one will be.

    Is really nice to see the road map, but would be even more awesome if we had a plan for the whole calendar month by month

    This would not only help the players to figure the time loops between then, but also give more value to the work done there will be a lot of stuff happening at same time if you add the road map to the planned calendar...

    Some people i talked in my alliance have a hard time tring to figure the year ahead of us...

    Anyway is NICE to see this kind of transparency from this game usually the only insight we had in neverwinter future was preview server and forum...

    PS. of course you need to place a BIG statment "This is a PLAN not the official calendar"...
