Arc Games have released new patch notes for Neverwinter, featuring tweaks to enemies, items, classes, and more.

Check out a snippet below, and see the full patch notes here.

Items and Economy


  • Chipped Siegebreaker's Battle Horn no longer spams the player with errors when used.

  • Invocation now properly provides XP when done between levels 71 and 80.

  • One of the Moonstone Dye Packs has now been renamed to Fartouched Dye Pack.

  • PvP now properly awards Glory and XP to players levels 71-80.

  • Striking Ring of the Veteran now properly provides Critical Strike instead of Armor Penetration.

  • Three dye packs that were listed in Appearances, but weren't in the game, are now properly in the Trade Bar Store.

Item Powers

  • The Lionheart weapon set bonus now also increases outgoing healing.

  • The "Undermountain Hunter" armor power now properly functions in Tower of the Mad Mage and other maps new to Uprising.


  • Waukeen's Golden Chest no longer incorrectly grants deprecated profession resources.

Enemies and Encounters


  • Permafrost, when used by Storvald (in Svardborg) or Drufi (in Fangbreaker Island), no longer incorrectly causes players to lose certain self-buffs and effects.

Tower of the Mad Mage

  • Tower of the Mad Mage will now properly unlock on Saturday, August 24th, at 10:00 PDT (17:00 UTC) for players who have unlocked it in the campaign.

  • Duumvirate now originates from the mid-line of Halaster, instead of a few feet in front of him.

  • Halaster now prioritizes damage-dealers (DPS) before healers when casting Eruption.

  • Halaster now becomes immune to damage when he finishes activating Sunfall.    

    • Dev note: Because players cannot win the encounter if they're all dead, we wanted to prevent the case where DoTs could take him down to 0% after his ultimate, but still leave players without a victory.

  • Halaster now properly resets during Sunfall if all players are defeated or the arena is empty.

  • Magnetic Attraction no longer has a chance to immediately fire when a tethered partner dies.

  • Magnetic Attraction now properly disappears when a tethered partner dies.

  • When shifting phase to Sunfall, Halaster now consistently cleans up certain environmental hazards and creeping ice.

Stardock Expedition

  • The Dragon Knight is now CC immune.
