Neverwinter Uncensored’s patch note parser runs through any bigger patch notes and offers additional context to the changes that were made to the game. Today we are taking a quick look at version NW.105.20181121b.10, which nerfs Charcoal in Module 15 and carries out the promised race pack upgrades for former buyers.
[su_quote]Level 32 profession tools can no longer be purchased from the Profession Supplies merchant.[/su_quote]
We start with a note that we can’t quite make sense of. The basic vendor sold three versions of each tools and the best ones are now no longer available. We’re not sure whether this aims at making leveling a tad more difficult or extending the market for tools. Either way, this feels random.
*** UPDATE *** The level 32 “Steel” tools could be traded for South Sea Trading Company Credit and with that presented a too easy way of upgrading Workshops.
[su_quote]The Winter Event mount, Twilight Yeti, has had its insignia slots changed to 1x Crescent and 2x Enlightened. It now has access to the insignia bonus, “Barbarian’s Revelry.”[/su_quote]
The good news is: The Yeti now has access to an insignia bonus. The bad news: It’s not a new one. We probably put too much weight on some wording, but our impression was that an insignia bonus would eventually match the slots of the mount. Instead, the slots now get altered to match one of the old bonuses.
[su_quote]Certain Companion gear reward packs no longer incorrectly claim that the player has received a Legendary quality reward when they’ve received one at Rare quality.[/su_quote]
This hasn’t been a major, but definitely a funny bug. Some boxes claimed to have dropped a legendary reward when it in fact was blue. Sorry to those that got excited for a sec. Rewards were always correct, it was just a visual bug.
The Charcoal Nerf
[su_quote]Charcoal is now worth 1 Guild Mark / Profession Resources credit per 5 Charcoal donated, reduced from 16 Guild Marks per 1 Charcoal donated.[/su_quote]
Here comes the Charcoal nerf! Many probably already assumed that the item would be changed after we reported how Charcoal is basically able to generate Gold and Guild Marks for free going from M14 to M15. There were several ways to handle the issue and the devs took one of the easier routes in just nerfing (or fixing) the Guild Mark gain. Before you start raging too much, stocking up Charcoal still makes sense, it’s just no longer as effective.
Before the nerf, you could turn one Guild Mark into 800 (!) with buying Charcoal in M14 at the Bloomery and feeding it into coffers in M15. Now it’s a “moderate” 1:10 ratio. For every Guild Mark invested into Charcoal you get ten back in M15. Not bad, right? The item is also still able to multiply your gold. Charcoal costs 30 Silver at vendors in M14 and sells for 70 in M15.
Devs Deliver Promised Pack Upgrades
[su_quote]The Dragonborn Legend Pack reclaim (from the Reward Claims Agent) now includes a mount and companion.[/su_quote]
The promised pack upgrades for former buyers of the reworked race and founder’s packs are also delivered with the patch. If you want to catch up what this is all about, you can read the story here and here.
