Welcome to the latest installment of our Bag of Tricks! On some days you will find useful tricks, gimmicks and ideas here that can make life in Neverwinter Online easier. Some of the stuff should be well known, but since even veterans learn something new every now and then, chance is you can, too.
Have you ever considered running games with less than the maximum possible graphical settings? Probably not, because it goes against what you would naturally do. Yet, it might be exactly what you want in Chult to gain a massive gameplay enhancement.
Turn off High Detail Objects
The setting we’re talking about here is called “High Detail Objects”. It toggles a lot of small objects that can be a pain to older machines. The game however also looks significantly worse without it since it’s missing half of the environment. In Chult though, missing all of those little bushes and flowers is actually great. The visual range drastically increases and hunting for trophies you suddenly start seeing mobs from miles away. So turning off the setting can be an enhancement, as the pictures below show.
If you’re on consoles you’re unfortunately out of luck. Without the ability to tweak the settings, folks on the Xbox and PS4 still have to crawl through the jungle unfiltered.
