Gameplay

Storm King's Thunder Features - Let's talk about the kinds of things you'll be doing in this new expansion.

Class Balance: Hunter Ranger - With the Hunter Ranger, it was apparent from combat log data that they lag behind other DPS classes a fair amount in Dungeons and other end-game content.

Class Balance: Scourge Warlock - The Scourge Warlock presented a different, though similar, set of problems to the Hunter Ranger. While not dominated solely by one build, the second build relied on bugs to be viable.

Class Balance: Guardian Fighter - For Guardian Fighters, we knew we wanted to look at two things: their damage, and their group utility.

Bryn Shander - Adventurers will be tasked with saving Bryn Shander from certain destruction and unraveling the mystery behind who attacked the walled city.

Bryn Shander Campaign - The Storm King’s Thunder campaign leads players to the rescue of Bryn Shander, chief settlement of Ten Towns—a series of remote towns in the frozen wastes of Icewind Dale.

Fangbreaker Island - Fangbreaker Island is located out in the Sea of Moving Ice and is one of the keeps of the frost giants where they store the treasures that they’ve plundered.

Campaign Details - As with our larger storylines, this expansion introduces a new campaign to track progress through the story.

Fury of Fangbreaker - Learn about all the new bosses you'll face in the new dungeon, Fangbreaker Island.

Art

Environment of Bryn Shander - This map has two major areas, the inside section of the city and just outside the southern gate in the tundra.

World Building of Lonelywood - Lonelywood is a very specific area in the D&D world so it had to meet certain specifics but within those parameters we were pretty free to creatively explore and create.

Cold Run - We're here to show off one of the new zones coming in Storm King's Thunder, Cold Run!

Fangbreaker Island Environment - Take a tour of the gorgeous yet savage Fangbreaker Island.

Lore

Story of Storm King's Thunder - We're here to give you a little insight into the story and background of our upcoming expansion, and how it ties into Wizards' release.

Systems

The Runic Lockbox - Inscribed with runes of power similar to those of the Frost Giants, this lockbox contains many new additions to the top and lower-tier contents.

Relics of Ostoria - Ostorian Relics are hidden in Storm King's Thunder and represent a new system to increase your power.
