Neverwinter

Protector's Jubilee 2018!

By Julia (nitocris83)
Mon 11 Jun 2018 07:00:00 AM PDT

The denizens of Neverwinter are celebrating 5 years of adventuring! Or at least hiring adventurers to protect them from marauding dragons and rampaging demons. It’s time for the Protector’s Jubilee!

The Protector’s Jubilee will begin on Thursday, June 14 at 7:30am PT (or after maintenance) on PC and 10am PT on Console

The Protector’s Jubilee will end on Saturday, June 23 at 7am PT on PC and 10am PT on Console

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.

New This Year

Anniversary Coins – Complete the quest “It’s a Celebration!” one time a day per account up to 5 times during the event. Speaking to Elminster will let you know if you have completed all your attempts. The quest can be found when asking Elminster about a NEW celebration going on. He will then direct you to speak to an NPC to gather some knowledge and bring it back to him. Once you return with this knowledge, you will complete the quest and the 1 year coin will be placed in your inventory. The quest is found in the Protector's Enclave section of the Quest Journal and resets at 3am PT so get your quest in before then!

Note: this quest may only be completed on one character per account. Once a character completes the quest for the first time, no other characters on that account can complete any other days of the "It's a Celebration" quest. The system may appear to allow players to pick up the quest on a second character but if you have completed it on one character already, the quest will be kicked off your quest log and you will receive the "completed for the day" message. 

This quest awards a coin, one for each Anniversary year, which can be redeemed at the event store during the event. The reward crates contain:

1st Year Coin

2nd Year Coin

3rd Year Coin

You can spend each coin the moment you get it - you'll still get everything from the 2nd Year Coin rewards when you get your 2nd Year Coin, and so on. Crates are bound to character, but the items inside are bound to account.

*Transmute items include: Betrayer's Claws, Lizardfolk Bracers, Greywolf Breastplate, Firegiant Crown, Shadow Wold Headdress, Hat of the Pirate Host, Lizarfolk War Mask, Frostwolf Pelt, or Cloak of the Aboleth. 

**Gear is BoA but class-specific depending on class that obtains it. We are aware of this inconvenience and looking at future promotions to avoid class-locking BoA gear. 

***Options include: Red Giant Beetle (2 Regal Insignia Slots, 1 Universal Slot) or Fancy Gorgon (1 Regal Insignia, 1 Enlightened Insignia Slot, 1 Universal Slot). Both are epic quality. 

****Rare quality pet choices include: Astral Deva, Barbarian Shaman, Blacksmith, Cantankerous Mage, Dread Warrior, Neverember Guard, Priestess of Sune, Quasit, Siege Master, Ghost, Grazilaxx, Ioun Stone of Allure, Leprechaun, Slyblade Kobold, Tomb Spider, War Dog, or Acolyte of Kelemvor. Please note that the "Icosahedron Ioun Stone" companion option has been removed due to an issue identified after the notification for this event went live. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

NOTE: This quest and the rewards crate replace the daily gifts from previous years.

Returning Anniversary Events

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 of at least level 6 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.

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 Blacklake District, 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!

 

Rewards

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!

Jubilee Unicorn – This majestic creature has been adorned with bright hues to honors the services of the heroes of Neverwinter!

Jubilee Parade Horse – Put yourself on a high horse with this decorated steed, which is trained to bear only the most noble of riders in majestic parades. Those who are privileged enough to ride this beauty will be rewarded with new, unique, and oh so fancy riding animations.

Traveling Entertainer – Every now and then you need a bit of entertainment along your travels through the Forgotten Realms.  The Traveling Entertainer is the perfect companion to lift your spirits and will also aid you in your battles with several fiery tricks.

Ceremonial Armor and Cloak - This four-piece transmutable armor set was fashioned after the anniversary banners that are hung all around Protector’s Enclave. The transmute armor and cloak items are available for each class.

Waterdhavian Fashion – Look your finest during Protector’s Jubilee with the Waterdhavian inspired fashion set that is famous for its dazzling and luxurious designs. This classy set is sought after by fashion enthusiasts along the Sword Coast to flaunt their rank amongst the other commoners that walk in the city.

Fancy Cloaks – With these fancy cloaks, you’ll be the talk of the town as you ride gallantly to Lord Neverember’s rescue. Choose between the Cloak of the Waterdhavian Open Lords, the Ceremonial Cloak of Neverember, the Cloak of the Guardian of Neverwinter, and the Lord Protector’s Ceremonial Cloak.

Shadow Dragon Throne – One does not simply sit on a throne! Intimidate those around you while relaxing in your new throne!

Throne of the Lion - You may never be on a throne overseeing Protector’s Enclave, but you can always pretend to with this fancy item.

Throne of Boo – A throne sculpted in honor of the unsung hero of the fight against Elemental Evil. With your own golden hamster guardians at your side, you’ll be the envy of all in Neverwinter.

Throne of the Gamemaster – This throne may not give you the powers of the great wizard Portobello DaVinci, but the gargoyle sculptures may serve as inspiration as you sit and ponder great adventures.

 

You can also receive the following from the Protector’s Bounty:

Volo’s Guide to Firebreathing – This item unlocks the “Firebreathing” emote

Jubilee Celebratory Feast – Set up a great feast in the Great Hall and celebrate with your guild!

Celebratory Confetti – A celebratory “popper” item that shoots confetti in all directions.  There’s also a chance for an Ancient Curio to be left behind, which can be taken to the Disheveled Madman for a reward.

Anniversary Ham – This slow cooked piece of ham increases maximum Block and Stamina for a half hour.

Elminster’s Lunchbox – A reward pack that contains random food items from events, including the Anniversary Ham.
