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.
The weekly campaign progression in the Jungles of Chult campaign of Module 12 and 13 features one pretty interesting aspect. The “hard cap” of Forgotten Totems and Lost Idols isn’t actually that fixed. It’s kinda like doing your taxes. Yes, from the outside it seems you have to pay a fixed percentage of your income, but then there’s like a gazillion exceptions and tricks that make you get your money back. The Weekly Haul of Module 13 sometimes feels the same. There are actually not less than four different caps that you can add up to earn more than what the Weekly Haul indicates. Let’s list them:
- Weekly Haul: This is you main cap that is shown in the campaign window and can be extended by unlocking tasks in the “advancement path”. All dailies, weeklies, and the shrine empowerment buff count towards this cap.
- Chultan Tiger: The Idols earned from the Chultan Tiger’s Active Bonus have their own cap of 25 per week.
- Hunts: Hunts, just like in Module 12, can earn you up to 25 bonus Idols per week. This is stated in the Hunt task’s description.
- Treasure Maps: Idols earned from Treasure Maps also have their own cap. We’re not sure how much it is, but since you can only farm six per week you probably won’t reach it anyway.
Added up this means that you can earn up to 50+ more Idols than your “Weekly Haul” indicates. This is something that is not well documented in the game and you probably need to keep track of the different caps yourself to maximize the possible progression.
