PWE were keen on showing off Neverwinter’s new mod, Storm King’s Thunder, to everyone on their community stream before it goes live. @strumslinger was joined by NW Content Designer @SeanMcann14 during the broadcast where they took everyone on a tour of the new adventure zones for the upcoming mod. Here are some of the noteworthy discussion during the live stream:

The power balances are in and I’m pretty sure this is just the first wave. Regardless of what comes next, these nerfs are a real doozy for most of us. In order to adapt, we will really have to change the way we play.
So, here’s my quick guide in how to approach the latest changes in Neverwinter.
In case you didn’t know, the lostmauth set added an additional 100% damage to your crit that scaled with power and buffs. But, on the tool tip, the damage the set should deal is supposed to be based on weapon damage. So, Cryptic decided to remove the scaling of the lostmauth set.
This makes sense, the previous state of the Lostmauth set has put all the other artifact sets to shame.
So, if you are a DPS character that uses Lostmauth set, expect your damage to drop significantly. On CW i tested an almost 30% drop in my DPS compared to before.
With the arrival of the changes in the trade bar store, I felt the need to get something out here and hope that people will not be too disheartened by the recent changes.
We all know what the recent changes are. It has caused some very stressful and demoralizing discussions in forums, zone chat, even in party and guild chat. It has not been easy for anyone, especially for guild officers. We have been part of helping everyone get their gears or at least be on the way to getting their gears, then Cryptic suddenly throws us a curve ball.
In case you still don’t know what I’m talking about, coalescent wards, preservation wards, and blood rubies have been removed from the trade bar store.
