  • I looked into this and found the fights in most places are like fighting bullet sponges and your character is the slightly better bullet sponge themselves. I personally haven't much issue, as I am a casual player. Where I assume you will have problems; In Live, I can solo run Biggrin's Tomb in Icewind Dale in about 5…
  • I am getting similar results. More attacks needed in all areas to kill mobs. It appears they made our health, in most places very elite. Then they dropped the attack damage down. This (in all reality) turns us into bullet sponges fighting off other NPCs with pea shooters. At any rate, that is what I was doing in Vallenhas…
  • I am planning to test combat on preview server. That is really the only way you can tell, unfortunately I cannot use ACT or other combat parsers as they will not work with this new system. In theory, I should be able to visit various places on both Live and Preview to test both systems. I will run the same mobs. What…
  • I think you have that backwards. Plenty of players buying items for Zen would reduce the backlog. When I finish spending my Zen, my leftovers are used to get some quick AD. If there are more of us cash only players, then we are not scooping up your AD offers. I would be quicker to blame the zen store pricing. When I spend…
  • As I stated, on the forums earlier, when @"noworries#8859" first announced this change, I am very happy he did. I pay cash for my zen and I don't use AD for zen, for me, the announcement saves us from a world of hurt. However the changes of trading my bondings that I was forced to use back on mod 16, doesn't set well with…
  • Thanks for the heads up @"noworries#8859" :+1: I will not place my regular Zen order until after New Years, just to scope out where the game is headed in 2021. I really mean it, this announcement has saved me from making a possible financial error. All these people calling you a big jerk are wrong, you gave your paying…
  • I just got back in from my bowling night. @greywynd is correct, they are dummy artifacts that should be replaced ASAP. To the OP @"xanderleopard2#4636" I don't understand how they are "destroying the fun" but I love to watch dumpster fires too. These players are also place holders and without them your wait for that queue…
  • BINGO! We have a winner. If the company offered people incentives to place Zen into the exchange, it would less the backlog. The trick would be, how do you tell the paid players from the freemiums? The only way they will entice me to trade Zen to AD is a better store for AD items. The Wondrous Blizzard ... ok that was auto…
  • First I don't play this on my PS4, I am not that cruel to my Playstation. I have it on my PC. Moderator edited out comment regarding previous moderation. How many people, who posted this type of recommendations, actually bought and paid for with cash, any amount of Zen this year? I bought $200 worth this year. There is…
  • @sandukutupu I was in Avernus, I am pretty sure those demons were chanting this; https://voca.ro/k5X4Kv45hta Is that what you heard?
  • What are my thoughts? I think you will do exactly, what you want to do, and don't care to return the game to normal operational standards. I see a lot of double talk in this post, and you don't need a degree to see what the players want. Return to the way it was before the change. I don't see any players/users here posting…
  • @sandukutupu okay I see what you meant. That is messed up. But this is the current state of the way things are with this company and many others I no longer take part in or a full active role in keeping them employed. I have honestly considered handing the guild off to you or blargskull, I don't think he plays much here…

  • You don't understand this topic. They are not talking about the mouse cursor, they are talking about the circle and dot reticle. In the center of your HUD that isn't used for melee combat. Never bothers me, it has been there for 7 years burning a hole in the center of my mind.
  • You can use any parser they just read and interpret your combat logs, nothing more. There is additional information in the official wiki under combat about the two parsers available to use. http://neverwinter.gamepedia.com/Combat#Combat_Log Also parsers can work offline on the combat file as well (if you are paranoid about…
  • I haven't been "playing", I just log on for 5 minutes a month to inspect the guild. What I have been doing is playing Champions online. The lag is virtually non-existent. My friend and I were playing on there and chatting about how hard it is to believe the same company made both games. The quest rewards are not random at…
  • I have a level 1 guild and I am the only Rank 7. I left 2 rank 6 in charge of things in the event the 30 day option pops up to call me by phone if need be. But as seldom as I play, I am not worried for some reason. Maybe because it is virtual real estate? I put effort into it but it isn't like a real investment over time.…
  • I run Window XP SP3 on a dual boot PC with Windows 10 as my "alternate OS". I just can't deal with Windows 10, but I am a child of Windows sorry. Linux Users I got some time off early today and wanted to hit up any Penguins in here with the 411. I tried a variation on my Zbox running Ubuntu with WINE 1.8.4 and the old…
  • Somewhat of an "extreme solution" like hitting a fly with a hammer. I did manage to update both the small Linux box and my desktop. I then encountered the brief and sudden crash on the "CRYPTIC" splash loading screen about 3 to 5 percent into the load. I followed @two30 instructions on disabling the d3d compiler 47…
  • Interesting, I am still at work, but I will run patch on the micro PC I have Linux OS. I will also need to update the one on my desktop running under Windows XP SP3. When I have the time, I will get back with you. I recommend you send in a report to the appropriate WINE forum. Regardless, I would like to know what you are…
  • @iandarksword @adran07 Dr. Simon Tomoko was in fact working on a quest with 3 separate story arcs and 2 sub plots. He abandon the work because of massive Foundry outages and networking issues. He no longer plays Neverwinter, but I did get to see his working unfinished product. It was produced in a massive custom dungeon.…
  • PS3 usb controller requires no OS drivers to work. The interface with the game is the "tricky" part. I have used the freeware program Joy2Key in the past, but you may need to set the launcher with the raw input command line. I haven't used a controller in quite a while for this game.
  • Thanks, it is a shame however some people are not bothering to read what is "hidden" under the » show previous quotes before jumping to conclusions. Seeing the full discussion helps one understand my point of view much better. Adding more to the game is always better than this game of take away. If you whittle a piece of…
  • Thanks, but not my idea originally. As you can see in this image, the chest has a loot or paid re-roll option. The astral shards are used for this feature in DDO. I am not saying this is a better game just this element has merit. With so many D&D games and games like D&D available to players for little or no cost, it makes…
  • Developers @mimicking#6533 @panderus to whomever else it etc.. I have played DDO and in that game, it not only allows the player to see the loot in the chest, but you have the option to reroll the loot. This move you have purposed, "in my opinion" is a step backwards not a step forward. You would have been further ahead,…
  • This really makes you want to buy the VIP for the chest keys. I skimmed over a lot of this because I have serious work in the morning. From the looks of it there is a lot of rage quitting and players threatening to quit should the update continue. I assume, when I get home from work and run the update, I will be hearing…
  • You can try this; http://neverwinter.gamepedia.com/Bryn_Shander_Scrying_Stones_Map
  • Fine product... roflol, fine mess, you should see the comments made by the programmers. This topic has not only been rehashed for this game but many other online games in a dozen different forums. The game engine is the property of Cryptic Studios, they don't pay out money for a license. Monthly rent on a AAA game engine…
  • In the launcher, under options, start the game in "Safe mode" and you should get a windowed game at the lowest graphics settings. Once in the game go into the options menu there and set the Display to windowed maximized. Slowly and carefully make adjustments to increase the graphics until they suit you. I have Nvidia on my…
