Note: This run of Siege of Neverwinter does not include updates reflected in the original 2020 Roadmap. Due to shifts in development, an updated Siege event will not be available this year.
The Cult of the Dragon has amassed their forces once more to lay siege to the city of Neverwinter! Sharpen those blades and prepare to defend the city in the updated Siege of Neverwinter!
The Siege will begin Thursday, August 13 at 10am PT (19:00 CEST)
The Siege will end Thursday, September 3 at 10am PT (19:00 CEST)
There is much to be done if you want to save Neverwinter from utter destruction, these efforts include:
Cult Invasion - The Cult was lucky enough to exploit a crack in Neverwinter’s defenses and now they are attacking with everything they’ve got! Fortunately, the craftsman of Neverwinter have banded together in order to help rebuild the city’s barricades. Protect the workers to ensure their work gets finished and the Cult’s forces are pushed back!
Counter Attack - Sometimes the best defense is a good offense. Charge into battle against the Cult of the Dragon and decimate their forces!
Dragon Attack - The Cult of the Dragon believes that they have a few scaley aces up their purple sleeves: dragons. Unfortunately for them, the city of Neverwinter has you. Clash with the dragons outside the city walls and forge your legacy in blood and fire!
With this Siege of Neverwinter event will come the chance to obtain Dragon Hoard Coins, Dragon Hoard Coffers, as well as other items used in the Tyranny of Dragons campaign. All of these items will aid you in your quest to defeat the Cult of the Dragon once and for all and help prevent them from unleashing Tiamat!
Writ of Commendations – A daily currency for the event earned by completing daily quests. You may also purchase this item from the Zen Market.
Dragon Cult Insignia – A repeatable currency for the event earned by participating in the Heroic Encounters.
