  • > @hotfrostworm said: > This is a question my wife voiced on preview thread or close to it. She asked about players who bought Campaign tokens to get 100%. She is or was very proud to have 100% on all campaigns with her characters, when she hit preview some of the campaigns say 50% but only 3 are 100% complete. I don't…
  • I bet you that the reason it takes so little time to get to 80 is because 1 to 80 generates no money for cryptic. So they have an incentive to get the new players to 80 as soon as possible. If it took you a month to get to 80, then its that much longer before they start considering spending money.
  • Yeah this is like when there is a hundred acre fire and a barrel of water got spilled on the fire line after the fire consumed the barrel. Sure the fire was temporarily impacted by the small amount of water. The longer those AD lockboxes were to remain a thing, once the players realize its a gimmick for them to waste their…
  • The reason I didn't explain my argument is because if you look over any thread on this topic besides this one, I have outlined my reasoning. I have repeated it so much in the past over probably 50 posts that if you just looked up my history chance are youll find one of them. So no they aren't baseless claims.. I just didnt…
  • The Ranger is definitely a fun class and sitting okay at the moment, not super great but thats just the nature of Neverwinter. One mod the class is great, another mod the class gets nurfed into the ground.. If you like bows, even the pure archery side of the paragon/feats are completely viable in end game. They are a very…
  • I have been saying for years they need to raise the cap on the exchange. I have watched it closely for many years and have been playing the game since it launched. The LAST time the exchange traded daily below the cap was mod 12, zen was freely trading. The reason this is no longer the case is because there is more AD in…
  • First of all welcome to the game 8) Tips for newbie, well yeah there are enough tips to fill two volumes of 5000 page almanacs, but I don't think you really want that much information. If you want to level up just a tad faster (not important) you can slot Azure enchantments into your Utility slots, head, arms, boots, and…
  • No there is a point near the time just before Strahd pulls you up top that every spot in the room is covered by the exploding orbs. So you are wrong, there is NO way to avoid them at this point in the fight. I know, I've ran CR hundreds of times, both with good groups and terrible ones.
  • I have one of each class, I have taken all of them through CR at various times of its history of being a bugfest, to almost completely uncompletable to its current point. The strahd fight has always been a spam one shot death fight. But I honestly think you really don't know the mechanics of avoiding the red explosive aoe…
  • Here is the thing. Even if Neverwinter survived to have 200 more mods, so even in mod 219 they would still be talking about class balance. The reason it is "never" balanced, isn't because its difficult, or hard to do. They mess with the classes every time to keep the game fresh. Imagine if they "balanced" the classes…
  • Actually this has always been the case since mod 14. Basically the Strahd fight is spamming red at you. If you have a decent healer in the party, its a cake walk even if you have low HP. Also there are ways to learn the mechanic completely so you are in fact only ever in a red dot against your will, 1 or possibly 2 times…
  • What's pvp again? There's pvp in NW? Hunh.. I thought that was just a myth..
  • I have ran no party member death IC and Tomm runs as a devout cleric healer. Ill say it again, the clerics complaining calling it a "nerf" 100% do not understand the changes and what they mean. Before I couldn't single target heal a paladin from nearly dead to full HP, I can now.. So tell me how is that a nerf? Is it a…
  • Remove the signpost, okay but they can still leave through the front door of the dungeon and achieve the same result. You want to prevent this too? How about this. Don't pug queue for REDQ, only go with alliance or guild? How about making some of the REDQ dungeons that players immediately want to skip out on because they…
  • I agree completely with the OP. There are two factors here. One is I remember in an old live stream the devs mentioning something along the lines of they are bored with giving dmg bonuses on items. But here is the thing, bored or not, there is ONLY one factor to NW, which is dmg. You can't complete most end game content…
  • I dunno. Mod 18, i rarely ever healed, found it boring. Mod 19 started and I wanted to learn the new system. Turns out after that I am running healing more than dps cleric in mod 19 and liking the new system. I bet you one billion ad that the reason most clerics are crying about healing is because they don't actually…
  • I play Cleric healz and I have absolutely no problem healing IC and Lomm. I have had flawless no death runs of both and the screen shots to prove it. Is healing more complicated? Sure, but once you understand how the changes work then healing is not only easier but it allows for extended healing options. So I disagree with…
  • Most of the ideas the OP suggest are contradictory, for example he suggests that each class should essentially have a different damage system, he gives the example of dps cleric doing less damage, but then turns around and makes another comment about no one class should be the main damage dealer. Well you can't have both…
  • On one hand I think it would be a great idea to allow 1 player to select all three buffs. However with that said I can foresee if they did that, newbies brand new to tong running random epic dungeon queue would take all 3 simply not knowing what they were doing and they would be queued in as healing warlock thus really…
  • I just dont get why they dont split the demand. Simple: So when insurgencies launch the first time the portal closure happens will trigger Bel. Then players can decide if they want to kill bel or continue insurgencies. Currently there is such a grind of a wait for insurgencies to end that players don't bother to help…
  • I agree, I have always thought this was silly when you are trying to report a player for using harsh language or being abusive in party chat. I just worked around it by adding in a few **** for the key letters that trigger the profanity filter. It's not perfect but its much better than taking a screenshot and needing to…
  • Yeah it use to surprise me how Cryptic could mess up an event or new content with poor design, now I expect it and am surprised that they are able to keep topping themselves on poorly thought out content in new and fresh ways.
  • And then there are some who will defend against all the constructive criticism blindly even though it's well deserved. The mistake in determining who is complaining to complain and those who love NW and want it to succeed yet constantly see poor decisions being made. So yeah, I'm sure players are well aware if they don't…
  • The Preview server is just that, for the veterans to get a glimpse of what is to come. It's not a test or debugging server. All problems discovered on Preview will ALWAYS make it into live.
  • The thing is kicking party members or not kicking party members both have draw backs and the potential for abuse. You can't solve this problem by removing. It will just shift the problem to another problem. The thing is Cryptic rarely ever thinks out the best solution, they go with simplistic solutions which don't…
  • Scaling of this system is 100% indication of poor game design. Why should there be scaling at all when you have worked to achieve some kind of gain only to have it nullified while running content that gives little to no reward but is harder to win? If the rewards actually met the difficulty then fine, add in scaling. It…
  • I swear when they go to fix bugs they just grab any version of the game regardless of it's date and start working on it then when it gets submitted it has outdated code hierarchy and thus introduces issues that were already solved and breaks things that were never broken before. Basically Cryptic has zero version control.
  • I do really get a laugh every time I read a new player complaint comments about not getting a legendary mount from a lockbox. I have had six month VIP stints where I pulled absolutely NOTHING good. It has been this way ever since they had lockboxes. Do new players ever consider that other players who have been playing…
  • With the lockdown everyone and grandma are attempting to run randoms when they shouldn't be, they are there hoping for a carry. I got demo yesterday that failed because it was 9 new players and then me. I did over 30 million dmg and the second on paingiver was 5 million dmg
