The Neverwinter team is extremely excited to celebrate Neverwinter’s one year anniversary with a special Anniversary Event! Lord Neverember has declared a great jubilee in honor of this momentous occasion. Few can resist the pomp and circumstance of the festivities, even the most powerful wizard in Forgotten Realms, Elminster Aumar, was compelled to travel to Protector’s Enclave to partake in the events. During this time of celebration adventurers will be able to tackle new daily quests, battle through a new skirmish event and earn plenty of rewards to help you celebrate the Anniversary!
Event Start: Thursday June 19, 2014 at 10 AM PDT (When is this for you?)
Event End: Thursday June 26, 2014 at 10 AM PDT (When is this for you?)
What’s going on during the event?
As part of the celebrations, Protector’s Enclave will be decorated with Anniversary Banners and will include a newly built rooftop garden overlooking the Market Square. The richly decorated Protector’s Garden will be open to all visitors during the event, but afterwards will be require a Garden Key. Entering the garden after the event has ended will consume the Garden Key and grant permanent access to the Protector’s Garden.
Elminster’s Messages – As part of Elminster Aumar’s visit to Protector’s Enclave, he is seeking the help of adventurers to deliver grim tidings to the Harper agents scattered across the Sword Coast. Players will travel to various zones to accomplish missions, speaking to Harpers in the field. Players of at least level 6 will have a chance to receive two quests based on their level. Completing the quest will grant you Commemorative Figurines that can be used to redeem Anniversary items in the event store.
Protector’s Speech Skirmish – Lord Neverember has taken this time of celebration to address the people of the city, but unsavory elements want to do anything they can to disrupt the speech. It is up to you to help prevent these creatures from disrupting this joyous occasion.
The Protector’s Speech is a scaling skirmish event that takes place in Protector’s Enclave. Each run, three randomized encounters will attack different parts of the city, and adventures will have to defend the city and defeat the creatures. Defeat the hordes and you will be rewarded with many items including Neverwinter Renown.
Sword Coast Adventurers - Players will find a special dungeon in SCA on Gateway. The dungeon features an encounter with The Protectors’ Speech, a boss that threatens to bore you out of the dungeon with non-combat challenges. Neverwinter renown will also drop from challenges within the dungeon.
Completing daily quests and the skirmish will reward you with event currency that can be used to purchase these Rewards:
New Companion – Every now and then you need a bit of entertainment along your travels through the Forgotten Realms. The Traveling Entertainer is the perfect companion to lift your spirits and will also aid you in your battles with several fiery tricks.
