Dealing with the balance changes

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.


Lostmauth Set

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.

Newbie’s Guide to Self-sufficiency in Neverwinter (mod 10)


The Seven Suns Coster Market

How do I farm astral diamonds? I’m almost level 70 or lvl 70 already, what do I do? What do I do to get strong in Neverwinter? Answers to these questions can be varied, and sometimes not very helpful.

In this guide, I am going to detail one way of getting to self-sufficiency in Neverwinter.

Let me explain what my idea of self-sufficiency is. Firstly you are making at least 72,000 astral diamonds a day. Second, you are an asset in delves. Lastly, you have access to all content in the game.

Getting the right gears

Let’s start by understanding what kind of gears you need. Do you understand your class yet? Do you already know how  you are supposed to play it? Priority one for you should be knowing how to play your class.Read your class forums, watch videos on youtube, check out some Neverwinter twitch streams, you need to get a sense of how your class is best played.

Dealing With the new Trade bar Store Changes

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.


It’s Gone!

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.

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.
