  • Support ticket maybe, ask for some sort of quest reset?
  • Then I'd suspect there is a contact, in the last zone you did a ToD task in, that is waiting to give you a report to take back to Boward, or has another task for you. If you haven't spoken to them, I don't think it will show in your journal.
  • Boward tells you to go to Neverdeath and talk to Windle (iirc), Windle gives you a couple quests to do, you do them, finish them for her, she sends you back to Boward with a specific 'Report' item, which unlocks the next set of quests. This pattern repeats for each zone that ToD sends you to. If she isn't giving you…
  • I just posted a suggestion above that would add at least a little variability. The idea of one Universal slot per class type could certainly be interesting. In my case that would look something like: Fighter/Paladin: Off/Def/Def/Util - Univ Rogue/Wizard: Off/Off/Def/Util - Univ Barbarian/Ranger: Off/Off/Def/Def - Univ…
  • That blog shows Fighter/Paladin/Barb being Def/Def/Def/Off/Util, then Rogue/Warlock/Wizard/Ranger being Off/Off/Off/Def/Util, with only Cleric having semi-balance stats of Off/Off/Def/Util/Util. As has been pointed out repeatedly, the apparent goal of Mod16 is to reduce variety and options, and make everyone pretty much…
  • I am not sure what the potential cause for this is (perhaps Cryptic simply decided to adjust the payout on honey). I do recall, a couple months ago, I had the same plan (making honey to level my Alchemists, then selling it to Begum) and went to her, and saw the same thing - 62 cred per honey. I thought, that can't be…
  • The devs in this case have a dilemma. They need to replace the old code that they don't understand anymore and have trouble modifying/updating/even just copy-pasting it forward into new events etc. (And of course, they have actual, real, mostly-endgame PvE issues that need to be addressed.) Once you start replacing old…
  • The more relevant issue here is, why is Cryptic even doing this sort of thing in events to begin with? They don't run events because the nature of MMOs forces them to. They run events to increase player metrics/participation. They run events to increase player amusement/entertainment/engagement with the game. They run…
  • The devs will be working from a set of design guidelines. Probably something like this: - Game should be smaller and faster - Game should look/work/code similarly across platforms - Game should remove all that old, complex code that none of us understand anyway, and use new, simpler code - All classes should be fairly…
  • In Mod 16, each class has one and only one set of attributes. There are no character rolls. All clerics get the same stats, all rogues get the same stats, all fighters get the same stats. You then apply your racial stats. That is all. (To the best of my knowledge) Cryptic has decided for you what your stats will be, and…
  • I try to support Cryptic and their games whenever I can - which is mostly, whenever they aren't HAMSTER up majorly and still somehow expecting us to clap our hands and go "Yay you're awesome!". But unfortunately, a thinking game requires thinking designers and thinking programmers, and I honestly haven't seen much evidence…
  • Wow... looking at those charts/selections... so that is what they mean by 'making fewer but more meaningful choices'. I guess if you only have a couple handfuls of HAMSTER to choose from, it is much more meaningful than having 3 handfuls of HAMSTER and 1 handful of actually useful stuff (the current trees).
  • My own guess would be that they meant to have Insignias have some sort of use/value - we've seen threads with the 'what do I do with these junk green insignia?' type topics. But the storage space is an issue and a problem, as is the RNG on getting the right matches for your current insignia. It would be better to have…
  • I use 4 of them to prop up the leg on the table in my workshop. Still wobbles a bit though.
  • Worked fine for me all day yesterday (March 6), however this morning every login and every 'Change character' is a (rap shoot. Hangs on 'Connecting to the Account server. Please wait...', which locks you up on that screen for 1-2 minutes (no way to cancel and re-try). On character changes, 'Timed out connecting to…
  • I fail to see how this is a moot point. I went through a fair bit of time, trouble and AD getting decent, epic, 2-slot items with good enchants in them for my companions. (All effort relative to my own capabilities, which is that of a casual, level 70, not very upgraded character) When Mod 16 drops, I will still be level…
  • One assumes you are saying this ironically, or sarcastically, or anything but seriously. Cryptic has always had a casual attitude towards setting up a system that encourages one style of play and significant grind/investment/resources, then coming along a year or two later and saying "That system? Oh yeah, that's bad, that…
  • I'm not on Preview currently, may have to delete a couple other games to free up space so undecided yet. Currently my Active companion gear gives me around 1,800 IL. Nothing fancy, just a couple seal rings, some rank 8 enchants, some 9 bondings. My 5 companion slots give me 325 IL, so just over 2,000 total IL from my…
  • I'm fine with devs making major overhauls to outdated game mechanics. I'm fine with re-designing my characters and builds to adjust to new ways of doing things. I'm considerably less fine with devs posting blogs with incorrect dates, posting test server code but then not fixing actual bugs that are pointed out weeks in…
  • https://neverwinter.gamepedia.com/Help:Acronyms/Abbreviations I haven't yet found a good page for summarizing the build names (Healadin, Burnadin, Templock, ACDC etc) so you prob still need to google those.
  • I'll link this discussion of the early ending of Neverember Incentives (without announcement or warning, before an eligible Neverember Recruit could possibly earn the advertised rewards): https://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/neverwinter#/discussion/1245892/neverember-incentive-points-no-longer-included-in-ai-campaign My…
  • This DC/lag discussion has gone somewhat off-topic, but since it is here, I'll toss this out. - 'Server' or "Cryptic's own IP" problems, as said, tend to affect a wide portion of the player base at the same time - Certain problems (such as recent connection/log-in/mapserver difficulties), are likely server issues, but…
  • My strat won't change before or after the mod 16 changes. It's been the same strat with Cryptic since back in City of Heroes days and their 'innovative new approach' with "Enhancement Diversification". And by 'innovative new approach' I mean "player base massacre fiasco". (Which was also, oddly enough, Season 6). It's the…
  • Watching various players go through various types of content, I can certainly see some motivation to shake things up. Since as @kiraskytower mentioned, once you hit a certain point you can blow through anything until you get one-shot. For professions, they basically threw everything you had away and made you start over,…
  • I'm gonna guess that they simply can't do much more with the old code, since none of them actually understand it and nobody is going to pay them to take the time to learn it. Thus, they are going to take out all the old code, and insert all the new, written-by-them code. Which seems to mean they will have some sort of…
  • I'm just surprised that we are over a month into the CTA Season and on the second event, and Cryptic not only hasn't updated the 2-pc set info, they haven't even answered the question as to whether a set ability will even be added. It's weird to put effort into making the effort to host an event, and then put a glaring…
  • (May be a re-post, as usual, one single edit deleted the entire reply) Thank you for finding and quoting Cryptic's own FAQ about how Recruit events work. Once eligible, a Recruit can earn all rewards. STO also has 2 classes of events - general events, where only during the event are rewards earned. And Recruit events,…
  • Thank you for finding and quoting Cryptic's own FAQ about how Recruit events work. Once eligible, a Recruit can earn all rewards.

  • I got the Dragonborn Legend Pack (which now has a slightly different name and is cheaper I think), back on some 20% off sale last year, it was an excellent purchase. Epic(purple) mount, purple companion, Runic storage bag, some gear and other bits for every character on your account, forever. Also unlocks the Dragonborn…
  • Again, you are incorrect. It does not state that players will only earn rewards during the event, nor did the rewards actually end at that time. They simply state that the Event time period is the time to create an eligible character. Earn rewards on an eligible character is a separate thing. What is the point of creating…
