The denizens of Neverwinter are celebrating 11 years of not being razed to the ground by rampaging orcs, torched by marauding dragons, or devoured by hungry demons! It’s time for the Protector’s Jubilee!

The Protector’s Jubilee will begin on Thursday, June 20 at 7:30am PT
The Protector’s Jubilee will end on Thursday, June 27 at 7:30am PT

The Protector’s Jubilee is Neverwinter’s big anniversary event, when the city is decked in bunting and confetti floats on the breeze while performers juggle and breathe fire on the city streets.  The doors to the richly decorated Protector's Garden will open to all visitors during the event, but after the festivities, only those who have redeemed a Garden Key may enter.

Anniversary Events

During the anniversary, adventurers can partake in various events:

Daily Tasks – Elminster requests your help in getting Protector’s Enclave ready for the Anniversary celebrations! Each day of the event, Elminster will have a new quest from placing decorations to rousing the celebratory spirit among the locals. Miss a day? Don’t worry, Elminster will have work for you – the quests can be picked up at any time during the event but will be gone once the anniversary is over.

Elminster’s Messages – As part of Elminster Aumar’s visit to Protector’s Enclave, he is seeking the help of adventurers to deliver grim tidings to the Harper agents scattered across the Sword Coast. Players will travel to various zones to accomplish missions, speaking to Harpers in the field. Players will have a chance to receive two random quests based on their level. Completing the quest will grant you Protector’s Figurines that can be used to redeem Jubilee items in the event store.

Protector’s Speech Skirmish – Lord Neverember has taken this time of celebration to address the people of the city, but unsavory elements want to do anything they can to disrupt the speech. It is up to you to help prevent these creatures from disrupting this joyous occasion.

The Protector’s Speech is a scaling skirmish event that takes place in Protector’s Enclave. Each run, three randomized encounters will attack different parts of the city, and adventurers will have to defend the city and defeat the creatures. Defeat the hordes and you will be rewarded with many items including Neverwinter Renown. Players will be scaled to 40k item level for this event.

Escort missions – With Lord Neverember seeking new business opportunities, traders and merchants from across the Sword Coast are making their way to Neverwinter! Affordable goods and a boost to the coffers are vital so players must ensure that merchants reach Neverwinter unmolested. Protect the Foreign Merchant in Ebon Downs and the Whispering Caverns and earn Protector’s Bounty!

Guilds will also find traveling merchants coming to their Stronghold, who must be escorted safely through the surrounding lands. Guilds will have access to a series of temporary traders that can visit the Stronghold for 24 hours, providing valuable guild currencies for small contributions of wood, stone, metal, and food. There’s never been a better time to join a guild and help them grow!


Taking part in the event earns players the Protector’s Bounty—packs of items including Protector’s Figurines, Renown, and more. Players can also share gifts with one another by raising a toast to Neverember’s generosity in the form of the Protector’s Hospitality. The more of each item players use, the better the rewards become. Players can earn temporary discounts in other stores, novelty items, and much more, all free while the event is running. Protector’s Figurines and Renown can be used to purchase a variety of rewards!


Red Dragon Mount – A mighty red dragon – not a dragonnel, not a baby dragon, a dragon - has agreed to help your cause! Dare not anger it though, for it is no mere steed. It has merely allowed you to ride it. Grab the Grand Anniversary Quest and complete the daily Protector's Speech Skirmish quest five days to unlock this powerful ally!

Throne of Menzoberranzan – This magnificent replica throne was re-created by a master smith from tales heard in the Underdark. Its impressiveness makes you wonder if some embellishments were made.
