Welcome to the latest installment of our Bag of Tricks! On some days you will find useful tricks, gimmicks and ideas here that can make life in Neverwinter Online easier. Some of the stuff should be well known, but since even veterans learn something new every now and then, chance is you can, too.
*** UPDATE *** This unfortunately is no longer possible. Storming the Castle now only completes for a full 20v20 match.
We’re sure this trick is nothing new for most players, but wanted to give it an own article anyway. “Storming the Castle” is a Stronghold weekly quest that grants the usual 4,500 RAD, a Blood Ruby and Chult campaign currency. Even though the rewards are tempting, completing the Stronghold Siege PVP can be annoying and takes substantially longer than other weeklies. So it’s probably good news to most that you don’t really have to compete in a PVP match to get your reward. In fact, you can even go full pacifist mode!
The “Storming the Castle” weekly only requires you to participate in the Siege event, and it can be completed within the private PVP queues. The private queue allows you to enter the Stronghold Siege with any team size, and freely assign teams. Players use this to resolve the weekly fairly easy. They grab as many participants as possible, usually only one team quickly establishes catapults, and destroy the opposing Stronghold. You can even join such matches on the fly when they are already running and slots available. Just look out for Siege Weekly requests in your lfg and custom channels. We’re not sure this is entirely intended, but it’s a reliable way to freely grab the rewards.
Just make sure to not join the match too late. Sometimes you are not properly credited in case you haven’t been on the map long enough. Actually scoring any point however doesn’t seem to be a necessity.
