Release Notes


Content and Environment

Avernus: Blood War

  • Quest credit for Infernal Wager (Demon) and Infernal Wager (Devil) is now consistently granted to participating players.
  • The system has been adjusted in the following ways:
    • The Blood War is no longer a server-wide mechanic. The war will now vary from instance to instance.
    • The longer it takes either faction to win the Blood War on a single instance, the more slaying enemies will contribute to the score.
  • The hit points of Garyx the Unforgivable and Siegebreaker Mog'dorath have been increased.
  • The waypoint for Siegebreaker Mog'dorath has been corrected.



Combat and Powers

Healing Adjustments

  • The following changes have been made to the mechanics "Mark of Divinity," "Aura of Divinity," and "Lifemark."
    • The range of these abilities has been increased to 120.
    • The marks granted by these abilities no longer disappear if the target moves out of range.
  • The following changes have been made to the mechanics "Light of Divinity," "Hand of Divinity," and "Lifepact."
    • The range of these abilities has been increased to 120.
    • The tooltips for these abilities now clearly indicate that if no target is marked, or if the marked target is out of range, the ability will heal the caster. (This functionality has not been changed, it has only been added to the tooltip.)



Enemies and Encounters

Lair of the Mad Mage

  • Golems after the Bore Worm should no longer have a chance to be invisible and untargetable.

Rage of Bel

  • The Dented Rod now has a significantly higher chance to drop.


  • Defender of Neverwinter Supplies: The items in this pack are no longer marked as Unique, which should allow the pack to open / be claimed if the player had all of the appropriate items.
