The second of episode for The Redeemed Citadel is now available for the PC version of Neverwinter: Avernus.

This new content features the next milestone of the server-wide collaboration to reconstruct the now redeemed Bleeding Citadel of Zariel in Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells. If you’re a console gamer, it should be available at a later date. However, the content from Episode One should be available on PS4 and Xbox One.

This new episode continues the story and will see you rebuild the citadel. You’ll contribute to the reconstruction by assisting Zariel. This is done through slaying fiends and completing Heroic Encounters in Avernus, by completing Holy Register of the Deputation Quests, and by doing the Weekly Challenges.

Weekly challenges will include  slaying demons, locating treasure, or traveling to past dungeons in an effort to gain Zariel’s Favor, a currency that can be exchanged for various goods. New content includes The War Room new chamber in the citadel that offers challenging and deadly new quests and is filled with Zariel’s lieutenants.

Additionally a Devil Assault is a new Heroic Encounter where the infernal legions attempt to take back the Redeemed Citadel. A powerful leaderboard reward, the Scathing Light allows players to wield the power of a spell unique to Zariel. Players can now challenge Zariel herself in a normal version of the Difficult Trial to test their mettle and help train for the Master Trial Zariel Challenge. Not here that the Trial will become available when the milestone for Episode 2 is completed.

You will be able to upgrade their mounts from Common quality to Mythic quality. Upgrading a mount to mythic quality will improve the mount’s overall power and available insignia slots. New Hunt Marks to slay deadly devils and demons for rewards are available. Finally, Blessed Weapons are available from the Zariel’s favor vendor.
