Cryptic Studios has updated the Neverwinter site with information about how gameplay and balance will be addressed in Module 1: Fury of the Feywild. Among several things, Astral Diamond prices for some services will be reduced, class balance changes are incoming, and much more.
Here’s a quick overview of some of the updates coming along with Fury of the Feywild:
Salvage System, Dungeon Event Chests, and Astral Diamonds Updates – We’ve been listening to your feedback about the ways that endgame loot and Dungeon Delve event rewards work, along with the Astral Diamond costs of different services and items in the game. Check out Lead Designer dinohedron’s forum post for all of the info!
Rejuvenation Potions not usable in PvP – We want to make sure that only PvP-specific potions can be used in PvP, and are making sure that PvE Rejuvenation Potions can’t sneak past that rule anymore.
Class Balance changes – Class and powers are integral to the game, and it’s important to us that we take the time to vet any changes before pushing them to the live servers. With Fury of the Feywild, we’ll be introducing a host of updates to each class, based on your feedback, our own playtests, and information collected from the NeverwinterPreview shard.
Non-Augment Companions and Rank 30 passive powers – We’re continually working to make companions feel more and more powerful, and non-augment companions will now have a passive power that can be enabled at rank 30.
Bounty items and the Currency Bag – Based on your awesome feedback, we’ve moved Bounty items to the Currency Bag, to free up more space for uber loots and other items that you may pick up on your adventures. To make sure that you have enough space in your Currency Bag for all of those Bounty items, we’re expanding it to 36 slots.
Searchable Foundry Tags – You asked, and we listened! When the Fury of the Feywild Balance and Gameplay update goes live, searchable tags can be added to quests by players during the review process (i.e. "Story Rich," "Combat Heavy," RP," or "Exploration.")
Inventory and Zen Market pages on Gateway – One piece of feedback that we’ve consistently received is the desire to have full control over your crafting experience through the Gateway. Now, you’ll be able to, with new Inventory and Zen Market pages at your fingertips!
LFG and Trade chat channels – We’re introducing new LFG and Trade chat channels to help make it easier to find the groups and items that you’re looking for, while also moving that chat outside of the Zone channels.
