Neverwinter

Patch Notes: Version: NW.110.20190519a.9

By Julia (nitocris83) | Mon 03 Jun 2019 05:01:25 PM PDT

 

Highlights

From The State of Neverwinter: Q & A Stream Recap post: 

Enemies

  • The health of all enemies (including bosses) has been reduced by 10%.

Enchantments

  • All Enchantments and Runestones, aside from Bonding Runestones, have had their item level and stats doubled.
  • Enchantments are now affected less by level scaling downward, while gear is affected a little more.

Soloable Content

  • All Campaign Zones, and their soloable instances, are no longer scaled by Item Level.
  • Challenge Campaigns have been renamed to Legacy Campaigns.

Queued Content

  • Most Dungeons and Trials have had their Item Level requirements and scaling targets increased.
  • Most events that scaled players to level 60 now scale players to level 40 instead.

Strongholds

  • The upward scaling on the Stronghold map has been removed; the map is now consistently level 80.

 

 

Level Scaling

General

  • Armor Kits now properly function when their Character Level is scaled down.
  • Character Level scaling has been removed from a variety of exterior and solo instance maps where players are Item Level scaled. This should not change the difficulty, but will instead leave the player at their usual level.
  • Characters with an Item Level below target, when their Character Level is scaled down, no longer incorrectly have their Item Level scaled down a little further.
  • Dread Legion, Throne of the Dwarven Gods, and Prophecy of Madness now scale players to Item Level 12000.
  • Ravenloft and Cradle of the Death God now scale players to Item Level 17000.

Known Issue - Expeditions

  • Leveling Expeditions no longer scale character level. (This is working correctly.)
  • Leveling Expeditions have incorrectly have had item level scaling added. We plan to remove this in a future build.
  • Master Expeditions are still properly unscaled, and we don't have any current plans to change this.

  • The Powers tab now has an indicator if the player has unlocked, unchosen feats.

Companions

  • A Companion can now be bound if the player already has a lower-rank version of that Companion. When doing so, it will prompt the player that it will delete the lower-rank version of the Companion. Don't worry, no harm comes to the Companion.
  • If a player manages to bind two Companions in a row, the first Companion will now be given a default name and the second Companion will properly have a rename prompt.
  • Inspecting an unbound Companion now properly shows what powers it will provide.
  • The Enter key can now be used to confirm companion name entry.

  • Comparison tooltips no longer appear on Companion Only gear.
  • Enchantments slotted in gear now properly display the proper stat values.
  • Stacks of high-quality Profession Resources can now be converted to normal-quality resources of the same type, so that they can be used for Masterwork Profession quests.
    • To do so, split the stack first, then select the appropriate stack in the inventory, bring up the context menu, and click Convert to Normal Material. The entire stack will be converted.
  • When comparing items, the item comparison no longer displays incorrect enchantment stat values.

Leaderboards

Refinement

  • The Refinement Point display no longer incorrectly appears on the Relic Restoration screen.
