Neverwinter Weekender: Black Friday Is One Week Away

weekenderlogoThe Neverwinter Weekender is our weekly column that contains everything you need to know to have some fun along the Sword Coast on the weekends! We’ll inform you guys about the events across all platforms, preview and review them as well as hand out some tips and guides. This is the perfect spot to start off your adventures!

Black Friday Looming Large

This weekend alongside the Sword Coast you can’t help but already look towards next week. Thanksgiving and Black Friday is looming large as everyone expects some large sales to happen. To give you an idea, here’s what was going on last year. Let’s only hope they don’t mess up the promotion again. If you haven’t exchanged your ADs to ZEN at this point on PC, it might unfortunately already be too late thanks to a massive backlog. But even on consoles you should hurry as the ZAX should continue to rise in anticipation of Black Friday. The earlier your hit the exchange, the better.

The good news however: There should be significant charge rewards starting Friday as well, so even if you need to turn to real money to get any ZEN, it’ll probably come with a nice bonus.

Influence and Call-to-Arms

That being said, don’t be a fool and fall for the current 20% companion (pc) or 15% bag sale (consoles). You’ll get better discounts next week. Instead players can amass Influence on a double weekend and consoles are probably also still busy grinding the Beholder in the Day of the Dungeon Master event.

On PC in the meantime, you can currently win a massive Corsair custom rig and amass Medallion of Battle in CtA: Pit Fight. The best way to farm the event by the way is queueing solo. Intended or not, this trick is still working and can net you more than 3,000 Medallions on an endgame character per hour.

We hope you guys will enjoy the weekend with our overview! In case you have any questions or remarks, make sure to put them in the comments or visit the corresponding thread on our message board!

    There was a teaser posted on the xbox side of the site about the Black Friday sale and it was subsequently hidden, and on xbox the zen sale is lowering the zax at the moment.
