The Firecross bridge on Mount Hotenow has been captured! The fire giant Grumthrox the Relentless and his minions have taken control of the bridge, cutting off the Hillborn expedition. It is up to you to slay one of the most vicious of the giant generals and regain control of the bridge and to protect Neverwinter.
Let the fire start on Thursday, October11 at 7:30am PT (or after maintenance)
The fire will be put out on Monday, October 15 at 7:30am PT
If you and your party successfully reclaim the bridge, you could be rewarded with amazing items, which include: the Flame Sprite companion, dyes, brutal enchantments, and of course Medallions of Battle. These medallions can be redeemed from the event vendor, in Protector’s Enclave, for unique weapon transmutes, Refiner’s Cache, and dyes.
In addition to the equipment drops from slain creatures (specific to your level), players could receive the following items:
Companion – Flame Sprite
Flame Sprites have a fickle temperament, but an everlasting love of fire. They will sometimes partner with adventurers in pursuit of greater fires. The Flame Sprite companion has initial power points in Power, Critical Strike, and Armor Penetration, along with two offensive slots and one defensive slot for Runestones.
The Flame Sprite has three powers and one active bonus:
Action Point Gain
The Flame Sprite shoots two flaming arrows that burn the target
The Flame Sprite’s spark arrow ignites in a bright flash, dazing victims for 1 second. The daze cannot activate more than once every 22 seconds.
Flame Sprites wield combustive arrows, sometimes setting foes alight and causing allies to glow.
Weapon Transmutes - Your weapons will glow orange like the lava surrounding Mount Hotenow
Searing Magma Dye Pack - A set of bright red, golden and orange, dyes matching the searing heat of the magma deep within Mt. Hotenow.
Brutal Enchantment – You could receive enchantments from rank 1 up to rank 5 as monster drops and from the reward chest.
Refiner's Cache - This cache contains one random enchantment or runestone between rank 2 to 4, possibly even a Brutal Enchantment, Cruel Enchantment, or Savage Enchantment.
And one of the following:
Are you ready to take on Grumthrox and reclaim the bridge?
