Getting gold at Demogorgon/Epic Demogorgon

This post is about how I usually run Epic Demogorgon with guild mates and friends and a few quick tips for you, so hopefully you too can always get a gold score on every run. Now, I am showing you Epic Demogorgon, but since Normal Demogorgon is just an easier version of it, then you can basically just apply the same principles and get the same results if not better.


We usually have at least two utility classes in our party, it depends on which classes are available. Any combination of the three utility classes will work fine. In fact, having all three classes is also a good idea as long as you can all coordinate your buffs and debuffs. Make sure that you have quality DPS, you don’t want someone with high item levels if his gears are all wrong. This is why I always discourage pushing for item levels just so you can run dungeons, it won’t matter if you have high item levels, if you are a liability to the team you will always have a hard time getting good results.

***Queue Group update***
With the implementation of the new queue system, I suggest having two parties following the above configuration. However, if one party is strong enough, who cares who’s on the second party.

Essential Information for new Neverwinter Players

In this post you will find questions that all Neverwinter starters should ask and the best answers I can give for those questions. These are basically all the information that I wish I knew when I first started playing Neverwinter. If you are still new to Neverwinter, wondering if you should play it, or an old player who left too early and is wondering if he should come back, then I hope these answers will help you.

This is a guide posted on January 27, 2016 for Neverwinter PC.  I’m indicating the date here since many things change in Neverwinter and most of time. The most recent guide is the best guide.

  • Is Neverwinter Pay to Win?

Let us first discuss the two main currencies in Neverwinter. The currency that you purchase using real money is called Zen, while the most important currency generated in-game is called astral diamonds (there are several currencies in the game). Zen is used to purchase in-game services, unlocking the dragon born race, mounts, keys to open lockboxes, powerful companions, etc. Astral diamonds are used to purchase items from other players through the auction house, purchase important refining ingredients from the wondrous bazaar, upgrading stronghold buildings, and many more.


Now, Neverwinter allows you to purchase Zen from other players through a Zen exchange market. Since it takes a lot of time and effort to grind astral diamonds, players who do not want to spend too much time farming would rather purchase Zen and trade them for astral diamonds with other players. So, this effectively puts all players in a position to purchase any item in the game through grinding or through using real money. If you have the time and don’t want to spend real money, then you can grind astral diamonds and exchange it for Zen if needed. If you don’t have the time and don’t mind spending money, then you can purchase zen and exchange it for astral diamonds. To answer the question, there is some element of “pay to win” in Neverwinter, but I would rather describe it as “pay to win early”. Free players can still achieve what a paying player has, but it will take more time to get it.

Breaking Down the Three Guardian Fighter Types

One of the most frequent questions I encounter when it comes to new guardian fighters is: “which of the three feats path is the best to take.” Simple answer is: “it all depends on what you want to do with your guardian fighter.” Basically all three can do the same things but at the same time there are critical differences between them. So, on this post I’m going to break the three types of guardian fighters down to their usual roles. (Updated for Mod 10).
