Bag of Tricks Vol. 27: Don’t Miss Out On The ARC Reward System

Bag of Tricks Logo

Welcome to the 27th 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.

We aren’t necessarily fond about the ARC client as it can be safely described as bloatware, but the latest attempt by PWE to bring more people to the app is something you probably can’t dodge. We already reported yesterday in our Community Watch that ARC has launched a reward system that’s based on doing simple quests. The earned points can be exchanged for ZEN.

It basically wants you to log into the ARC client or launch one of their games, so eventually your hard drive will fill with their collection. Some quests can be completed immediately, for others you need to do the same stuff on consecutive or a certain amount of days. The longer ones are also generally more rewarding in terms of points generated per day. You can hold a maximum of three quests. Completed and skipped ones are replaced with another one. We’ve not run into a daily limit of quests, but we’re sure there is one, because otherwise you could just circle through them and generate an unlimited amount of points per day.

Based on very limited tries we would set the amount of points you can get at 5k per month, which would transfer to 500 bonus ZEN. For only minutes of work each day this is indeed a nice reward. We’ll keep you posted whether there are additional caps or walls you run into along the way, which we wouldn’t rule out as it would be very PWEish. But for now we can absolutely recommend looking into the reward system.

Have fun with it!

    They are also doing something similar on xbox, You get arc points for earning Xbox Achievements and you can get items like the Heavy Mystic Nightmare(BoE) as the top prize, Mystic Phoera and Skeletal Dog(Both BoE) are also options and some consumables but I don’t know anyone who would opt for those, currently bugged for some people because it hasn’t added the points up correctly

    Because if there is something funnier than grinding their appalling content and for AD is to grind their piece of shit software that never works properly.
