That rant about mail can be extended to all Cryptic chat boxes that I usually end up cursing at least once per login.

Mod.. 19? I think is where we're at? It still seems good 'balance'wise. All of my toons either didn't get nerfed noticeably bad, or, better yet, got useful boosts and new play options. Can't say anything about Warlock heals yet. I've been nonstop farming RP and Legion weapons when they finally started dropping at a less than totally unreasonable (as in, don't expect them to drop any time soon, for even one toon) rate.

Anyway, yeah. I have seen some fresh life breathed into my Fighter (not tankwise unfortunately) and Warlock, and, they didn't screw up my Rogue or Wizard who I'm very happy with. So I'd call it a good mod and I like the new gear (weapons and chest) I use from it.

It's all about farming RP lately.. I've got new weapons.. new Artifacts - they've really come down in price at the same time I finally decided to learn about and invest in them and I'm nonstop farming to get them upgraded.

Arrr well it's back to the gem mines.. With all mains as fun or funner than ever, farming their fingers to the bone. Yes, I could just buy the RP outright, but, humm, yeah, I just accidentally deleted a toon with probably 1 million+ AD in tradeable gear, soo, humm, I'm being cheap. I was already being cheap but then I did that and it reinforced the idea.

My Warlock actually got #2 Paingiver 3x in a row in random Trials today. Am hoping that was the free retcon and not just luck. This action moved him up the line for some shovelfuls of RP..

The luck continued with a string of #2 and even a #1 Paingiver, never got less than #2. Looking forward to finally getting him some artifact gear.. (yes, that was a now not so subtle brag).

I am proud to say that if any of my gear is "BIS" it is total luck, and, I have no idea what a BIS Warlock build is supposed to be. This should be encouraging to the seemingly very few in NW who do things their own way.

Ah well anyway. Had to brag a lil. It's taken a fair amount of effort up to this point. NW has a lot of good players. We won't even talk about the redq..

OK so it must be mentioned that the #1 Paingiver often doubles, and even nearly triples my score..

Having said that, I managed to hang on to my #2's yesterday and even pulled out a #1 on a redq.. We failed the epic dungeon (lomm), but still, I'll take it. I'm still not sure I should even be running redqs (they generally end very badly and I feel I often contribute to that outcome) but I'm thinking to give them another go. I have to run them every once in awhile to remind myself how bad of an idea it is.

The Siege of Neverwinter starts today.

If you're level 40+ and don't miss 1 day of the 14 day event that means you get a free Epic mount and lots of guild vouchers.

Also, at this time of mass carnage, there happens to be a 2x refining stone drops 'event' starting for those of us sucking for refining points for our new Legion weaps and the recent flood of cheap Artifacts..

So, all in all, a good couple of weeks for all and a great couple of weeks for newbs 40+

So... The gist, is, it's a serverwide dynamic event in which we all contribute to the progress in some way. Something I never saw them do and that is rare to see in PC gaming.

Hmm.. so.. yeah.. It's not as dynamicy as I'd hoped for, but, yeah, Redeemed Citadel is a worthy farm fest. I'm enjoying it so far. They are really ...fleshing out Avernus from its humble beginnings. Not that I'm excited to spend more time in Hell.. but, yeah, they've made major strides to bring the zone to...life.

I just got done nearly fully upgrading my OLD NEW gear... on my first toon... so.. yeah.. must be time to farm up some New New Soon to be Old New Gear. But hey, they did it in a way that filled up 100ish instances earlier with busy ppl. (I shoulda looked how many there actually where.)

The new weapons are ~ as good as Lionheart but you don't have to farm Lionheart. So there's that. So far it looks similar to how we got the Old New Gear (Legion). Which was fairly straightforward and.. accessible as compared to Lionheart.

I can still get creamed in the harder Epic Dungeons (getting better! I can deeps a Lomm finally..) and don't run them often so I haven't even tried the hardest one yet.

Anyway, yeah. Thumbs up so far.

The newest breed of MMO farmers are carrying the torch, I tell ya.

In the latest Avernus farming effort (there have infamously been several already) we are all on a gauge. There is a leaderboard listing the farming efforts of everyone farming the latest farmables... I've already farmed my brains out in Avernus to the point that if I never see it again - that will suit me just fine. I am currently placed in the Mid Four Thousands... Like, you know, ~ 4500.

Wow big patch:
https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/neverwinter/news/detail/11478343

Sooo first of all, the first campaign - Staff of Savras(sp) - is no more. Sibylla's shop is no more (I think..). The AI campaign is no longer available until level 60..  The Mount Change is live.. 'Most' Zen store companions are now Bind to Account instead of Character... Which ofc is very good.. BUT.. I think they are also no longer tradeable to other players due to as soon as you claim the comp with any of your characters he is Bind to Character... Which seems not so good.. We're in Redeemed Citadel Milestone II now..

And etc and so on.

Fairly big patch.
