Last call people! - Fallen Tower Tavern

blargskullblargskull Member Posts: 513 Arc User
I was just on decided to go tower diving one last time. That is one feature I felt was unique to this game, I will miss doing it, although it only grants an unseen achievement but one time. If you haven't jumped yet, now is the time to do it. I also checked and there is a total of 93 people in the Tower District. Obviously none of them are having any fun or even playing this area. :trollface: I also assume most don't know the area will be gone soon either, otherwise they would not be in there "wasting their time" on something that will soon be pointless.

I will also miss old Jerry in Blacklake. I should go visit that old spy. What will you be missing when module 21 arrives?

Just killing time...

    I will miss Helm's Hold. There were so many wonderful things that were class specific. I will miss giving Brother Satarin hope.
    There was a lot to do there that made you feel like a GOOD aligned character.

    I haven't made a halfling character yet. I was going to make a new halfling bard. I will miss the halfling race contact and arc from Blacklake. Like the Redeemed Citadel, it will be content that I will never get to experience. That bothers me.

    I liked the Tower District. I liked fighting the Many-Arrows tribe and earning their Gear as trophies. I will miss doing the quests for Sybella and the Order of the Third Eye.

    I will miss Pirates Skyhold. I will especially miss the beautiful gear pieces you can earn there. Some of the best looking gear in the whole game going POOF. I will miss building a relationship with Captain Yargo and redeeming the Mutineers from Blackdagger's pirate gang. That was epic. I've never jumped off "The Plank'. I think this last weekend I will have to try that just to see what happens.

    I will try to get all the Scrying Crystal Explorers in the areas that will go POOF on all of my characters. Also, I have to do the Vault of the Nine on my last two characters to earn their Sigils so I have the complete set of Character Sigil Artifacts available.

    I will miss not having to worry about content being removed before I can get to it. That's what I'll miss the most.

    Happy Gaming to you and yourn! :D

    I was going to post a thread about where people will go one last time, but I'll just piggyback onto this thread instead.

    Is anyone planning a communal last hurrah on one or more of the maps going away? Maybe a dance around a bonfire in Blacklake or tower diving as OP suggests?

    Normally I'm not into such things, but given the scope of changes coming next week I thought this might literally be the last time many players have to 'see' each other in game, before another wave of rage quits happen starting next Tuesday.

    TELL ME HOW TO TOWER JUMP pleases ;)

    Climb the tower. Pick your spot. Jump towards an orc.
    I'm not looking for forgiveness, and I'm way past asking permission. Earth just lost her best defender, so we're here to fight. And if you want to stand in our way, we'll fight you too.

    You don't have to run up the staircase once you reach the roof after going along the walkway, you can just go and jump straight towards the hole as soon as you get up there.

    Check your journal for achievements you haven't completed.

    @callumf#9018
    Blacklake District there is this old crazy that goes by the name "Old Jerry". He just has odd dialog, but I will post the spoiler video here.


    You can find Old Jerry 4 minutes into the video.




    I recorded these video samples some time back when I test in Linux OS. I play them back against the Windows OS to see or hear any differences. I normally don't post these to YouTube.

    What will happen to the old bounty currencies? Do any interesting transmutes drop from the gear bags?
  • jules#6770 jules Member Posts: 708 Arc User
    Okay so. I am not the most nostalgic person about things like that, but I did go back and also make sure I have some achievements that I might not have picked up before. It's so hard to understand that anybody would actually take content that I have done before away for basically nothing.
    My first toon did all the zones, no skipping, and it was great. It had that new experience sort of thing (that is pulling people to new world now) where you have no idea about anything and everything is cool.

    In retrospect, especially considering I just did finish Sharandar Ep 1 or whatever, the Granny quest... Older content had more to explore. More achievements that actually made me smile (Bel Achievements kind of forced a different reaction out of me) and felt fitting to Neverwinter, you know, the DnD World (not the pp comparison aspect of the game) - I am not an expert on DnD, but stuff that made me smile was the Tower, it was Scrying Orbs in Chult and Omu (Shortcuts there, too) or finding Caliban. The drunk achievement with Knox, stuff like that. Hot Feet. Linkletter Quest.
    So I was in this new Sharandar kinda thing in this cave to kill some Granny and there was nothing in there but some redcaps that hit harder than SKT bosses and the boss(es). Nothing else to find or explore. Maybe I am getting soft, I initially didn't really care about stuff like that, but after spending so much time in NW I really liked seeing all this. A lot of this was not seen by many players, but I have met new players too that cared about this just as much.

    It is how it is, but its nice to take the time and see the zones as they were for a last time - since I would rather sit in nettles than play this as a vaulted content. Get hamstered...

    I actually went around all the soon to be deleted zones and turned-in all my currency to the bounty masters, but I did more than that and turned in every currency I had altogether just to on the safe side (who knows what will go next) so I forget what came from where, but I did get some good transmutes as rng rolls, mainly belts I think. I forget already what I got but it was worth doing.

    edit: oh I got a couple of good boots as well. Usually it was just junk which I sold for gold (I made quite a lot because I had a lot of unused currency) but every now and then it would give one extra item along with the usual one which was kind of spesh. There was also one instance in Rothe Valley where I got a really cool armor transmute like a spider, but it was for another class and annoyingly bound to character so useless, it would have been cool to put on the AH for someone else to enjoy seeing I couldn't use it.

    Shortcut Spelunker is one of my favourite titles, I've used it a lot. :-) I also found one recently I never knew was there called Water Weight which is in the Cloaked Ascendancy beginning where you go to the Makos send-off in River Dist (where the bad dude appears and you have to fight to get back out and back onto the boat), if you turn around and do a 180 and face behind where you come in there are dummies on the other side of a fence right at the end of the pier and if you hit them with water you get that title.

    Thanks for posting those videos! Maybe I would make some myself, but my OBS Studio crashes Neverwinter or maybe that is working as intended. :trollface:

    Yes, while I do believe change is needed and inevitable, we will be losing some great content.

    There is a pit inside his lab, where you hand in quests. Feel free to jump right in there. :+1:

    I really enjoyed Tower District, especially how it was when the game first launched and the quest lines were longer and more complex, I really loved the lore and the zone.
    Helm's Hold was also fun, the plot was great and I enjoyed the little parallel quests we got in there. Oh, and the lovely sound effects in the final dungeon, with the resounding voices, loooved it!
  • blargskullblargskull Member Posts: 513 Arc User
    I hope you all got to jump one last time. If you didn't it is too late now!
