After your adventures in the frozen lands in the North, it’s time to come back home to Neverwinter. Hang up your cloak, have your laundry done, and tuck away your newfound treasures. Enjoy the warmth, both in weather and the welcome of old friends like Knox. It’s a time to relax and reflect, and to drink a toast to absent friends. But heroes in Neverwinter never rest for long…
Trouble is stirring. Rumors of magic and uprisings fill the taverns. And now Lord Neverember is calling upon adventurers to help reclaim the old River District. It’s time to pull the boots back on and see what’s happening to your city!
Let’s dig into what we’ll see in this new expansion, The Cloaked Ascendancy:
New Adventure Zone: The River District - Lord Neverember has made good his claim to reclaim and expand upon Neverwinter by opening up the old rich merchants and nobles neighborhoods of the River District. Now he’s looking for adventurers like you to help him secure the port and land. By establishing guard posts around the River District you can help recover wealth from abandoned mansions and crypts through excavation sites. The trouble is, he’s not the only one with the idea. Several powerful wizards have laid claim to the River District, and even worse - one of them has claimed sovereignty over Neverwinter! The River District comes complete with a new campaign with alternate paths towards completion.
More Treasure Hunting! The River District is full of possibilities and hidden treasures. All you have to do is find a map!
Ships ahoy! The opening up of the River District port means lots of opportunities for trading. Protect treasure caravans and barter with travelling merchants willing to trade fresh supplies of Voninblood and other sought after treasures in exchange for resources from the River District.
New Skirmish: The Illusionist’s Gambit! This crazy skirmish has you battling wits and blade against the mind of a mad illusionist. Be ready for anything- then play it again and be ready for something else! The skirmish has dozens of play combinations. Go test your luck!
The Return of the Spellplague Caverns! Refurbished and remastered, we’ve cleared out all the corpses of adventurers gone by, and reopened both standard and Master versions. New challenges, new boss fights and of course new epic loot. The Mimic King compels you!
