For the console launch of Neverwinter’s Heart of Fire expansion the game has teamed up with Twitch to deliver exclusive rewards to all players with a prime subscription. Currently you are able to grab an “Elite Intern Bundle” that contains an exclusive companion with appropriate gear. Also included is a Runic Bag of Holding. But that’s not the only reward players will be able to get in the coming months. The promotion page lists a “Mottled Rage Drake” for February and a Professions Pack for March.
It’s not the first time Neverwinter delivered goods using Twitch Prime. The last time however they made it a PC-exclusive, which wasn’t exactly well received by the console community. Now fortunately all players can benefit. Depending on the platform you play on you have to link your Arc, Xbox, or PSN account to Twitch to claim the rewards.
Elite Intern Bundle
More than that, the bundle is actually a decent reward, especially if you’re just starting out. You get a fully decked out companion, free VIP, and a free bag. That’s approximately a 5,000 value, although attaching numbers to these type of rewards is always a bit dicey. Nonetheless you’ll get a nice package to start out with. But also veterans can make use of the bag and the VIP and obviously can equip the gear on any pets they like. The “Fierce” line comes with two offensive slots and Power / Critical Strike as stats. It’s great gear for all DPS classes, but has niche viability even beyond that.
Elite Intern Companion
The companion itself is interesting as well. Guy needs to hit the gym for sure, but seems to be a buffing type that dishes out a random buff to the player. Theorycrafters will probably look into it, but from the sound of it it’ll have a hard time outperforming the current top choices, especially since it has two defensive rune slots. But again, for a free reward, not going to complain a whole lot here. If you have nothing better or need one for an alt anyway, there you go!
Overall it’s almost surprisingly decent value, but you of course have to consider that it’s behind the Twitch Prime / Amazon paywall. I’m not sure I’d buy into that just for the bundle, but in case you’re already subscribed, make sure to get to the giveaway page and claim the rewards!
