Update: Only a few more days left to save the city of Neverwinter and earn exciting rewards! Get them while you still can!
The Cult of the Dragon has amassed an army to siege the city of Neverwinter. They breached one of the outer walls, and are now trying to push into the city itself. Meanwhile, their dragon allies rain terror from the skies. General Sabine has a plan to push them back, and asks the city’s adventurers for their help.
Siege of Neverwinter Start: Thursday September 18, 2014 at 10 AM PDT (Pacific)
Siege of Neverwinter End: Thursday September 25, 2014 at 10 AM PDT (Pacific)
Starting September 18, 2014, players will defend Neverwinter from encroaching foes in the new Siege of Neverwinter Event. The new event brings the brand new Siege Battlefield and Enemy Lines event zones. Protector’s Enclave has not gone entirely unharmed as players will notice various buildings on fire and damaged from the initial attack.
Additionally, Siege of Neverwinter will bring a variety of Heroic Encounters in the two new zones. The new encounters will task the players with defending the breach from the Cult army, going on the offensive to push back the attacking cultists and finally, adventurers will need to defend the city from the powerful dragons sent to aid the Cult of the Dragon.
The Cult of the Dragon charges against the breach, attempting to prevent the reconstruction of the wall. The players must fight them back before the Cult manages to kill enough workers and destroy enough supply crates to prevent rebuilding.
The Neverwinter Guard sounds the call for a counter attack, charging the battlefront in an attempt to push back the lines. Players can participate by slaughtering as many attacking cultists as possible before time runs out.
A dragon lands in the center of the battle lines, preparing to assault the city. Heroes are needed to take the dragon on and slay it before time runs out.
The brave warriors who venture past the safety of the city walls and return victorious will be rewarded with exciting new items, which include: Battlefield-themed fashion items, Event Profession Assets, a Battlefield Medic companion and much more! Here are the rewards you could earn during the event:
Writ of Commendations – Daily currency for the event, earned by completing daily quests
Dragon Cult Insignia – Repeatable currency for the event earned by participating in the Heroic Encounters.
Medal of Heroism – Additional currency, earned by participating in Heroic Encounters, turning in Defenders supplies or via the Zen Market.
