We hope everyone enjoyed our April Fool's stunt yesterday as much as we enjoyed creating it for everyone. For those who haven't seen the video, or were avoiding the internet yesterday, our amazing video team put together a trailer announcing our next "playabe" race - Dragons. Check out the video below and let us know what you thought of it:
Did you miss our preview of Respen’s Marvelous Game? Starting April 1, 2014, players will be able to queue up for an exciting new adventure never before seen in Neverwinter.
Respen’s Marvelous Game takes place atop a table, with your character being transformed into a miniature statuette. This new event will challenge you on a whole new level. Now you will know what it is like to be on the other side of a table top game!
Respen’s Marvelous Game Event Begins
: April 1, 2014 at 10 A.M. PDT (Pacific) (When is this for you?)
Respen’s Marvelous Game Event Ends: April 4, 2014 at 10 A.M PDT (Pacific) (When is this for you?)
Respen’s Game consists of two adventures. Once queued for the event, players will be randomly given one of the two adventures to play through. Each consists of two different paper maps and has their own unique theme.
The first adventure requires you and your party to fight through a forest littered with orcs in order to save an elven princess. The second adventure takes place in the “Dreadful Dungeon,” where evil monsters have taken over. The dungeon must be cleared and it is up Adventurers to defeat the iconic D&D Monsters.
Complete these adventures and you will be rewarded with amazing new items:
Green Slime Companion
This acidic blog consumes enemies with its toxic sludge. To those who don’t pose any danger to it, the green slime can be playful and enjoys the company of kind souls. Just make sure to stay on its good side.
As a green companion, it has a max rank of 20. It has initial power points in Power, Critical Strike and Armor Penetration, along with two offensive slots and one defensive slot for Runestones.
The Green Slime companion has three powers and one active bonus:
Increase in Defense
Deals damage over time to any foe that gets close enough to touch the slime.
Grabs target foe and pulls them into the slime.
Targets hit by Acid Aura are caught in the sludge and have reduced movement speed. (This power unlocks at companion rank 30)
Adorable Pocket Pet
This extremely adorable furry pet lives in your pocket and gives you nice stat boosts, but you’ll have to show it some love first. Petting your pocket pet will have one of the following effects: Decreases threat gained, increases critical severity, increases regeneration and increases action point gained.
Sacred cornmeal from lost Maztica, cut into triangular pieces and fried in oil. Lliira’s Fare grants increased Lifesteal and Control bonus dependent on your level.
Dew collected in various depressions in the rocks of the eastern face of the Sword Mountains and filtered through strange rocks. Lathander’s Dew increases action points.
Neverwintan Red Veins
A confection made from sugar, honey and flour with cherries or strawberries added to give it the distinctive red color. Red Veins grant increased armor penetration and defense dependent on your level.
This event currency is attained from playing the Marvelous game. It will drop from enemies and appear in the rewards chest at the end of the adventures.
You can spend the Crystal Dice in Respen’s store where you can buy reward items you might not have received from the rewards chest.
