Dev Blog: Dragon Cult Lockbox & Lockbox Changes

By Nitocris | Fri 20 May 2022 07:00:00 AM PDT

Dragons and their cultists are running wild throughout the Forgotten Realms, driven wild by The Scaleblight Mythal. Heroes who fight their way through the storm of scales and blood can see the light at the end of the battle, and the rewards that will come with it. The new Dragon Cult Lockbox arrives June 14, 2022 to PC and Consoles!

NOTE: The Lockbox of Dark Omens will disappear on 6/14/2022

Reward Structure Changes

We would usually just jump right into the rewards, but with the Dragon Cult Lockbox, we are restructuring how lockboxes work. The first thing you will notice is that the odds are now displayed when examining a lockbox:

Additionally, when examining a lockbox, the User Interface has changed:

All of the rewards that can be obtained from the lockbox will still be displayed on the left side. On the right side, however, you will notice a bar that displayers progress. Each time you open a lockbox, the progress bar will advance, and when specific milestones have been reached, you will be guaranteed a bonus reward. Upon opening 250 lockboxes, the progress bar will reset and you will be given a Dragon Cult Choice Pack, which will contain your choice of the two grand prizes!

Enchanted Keys are still around and still required to open lockboxes within the new structure, and existing lockboxes have not been changed, and will still behave in the same manner.


Distantly related to dragons and raised from eggs to be uses as mounts, a domesticated dragonnel tends to be overly protective of their riders. Enemies will tremble before you as you stride into combat upon your mighty Nightfire Dragonnel! Note: Mythic tooltip displays max possible stats when a player has 10+ mounts in their stable.

Based off the Wyvern-Venom Coated Knives, you will be able to arm yourselves with Dragonbone Blades Artifact Set, which comes at Mythic quality. Mount your Nightfire Dragonnel, equip your Dragonbone Charm, Belt, and Blades, and ride into combat to defeat your enemies, and enemies of the realm!
