Neverwinter Weekender: Boost Your Strongholds!

The Neverwinter Weekender is our brand-new 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!

Influence & Strongholds

Most players are probably still in their preparations for the upcoming Double Refining week, but this weekend you can’t do wrong running Influence in your Stronghold. This double event is a strange one because you can’t really prep for it. The daily quests in the Stronghold just give double Influence and that’s it. So guilds basically only get progression worth of an additional weekend while cleverly managing other events, you boost whatever you’ve been doing for weeks in advance. That doesn’t mean it’s useless however and Cryptic made sure to throw in a Stronghold sale for those willing to pay ZEN for guild progression.

Straight to Helm

Is there any hope for the Call-to-Arms event format? It remains a fast way to farm daily Diamonds on alternate characters, but that’s pretty much it. The rewards are outdated, farming the skirmishes completely nonviable. Companions Bundle? Not worth the ZEN… It contains level 60 items!

Play with the devs

The good news is: A rather slow weekend should free up time to play with the devs! This afternoon, or evening in EU, players are invited to join the preview server and test new Module 11: The Cloaked Ascendancy content with the devs. It seems like the new Spellplague dungeon might still not be available, but we’ll see. It’s probably your best bet to try out the new group content as the server will be well populated.

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!
