Ahead of the console launch of Neverwinter’s Lost City of Omu next Tuesday, there’s an interesting situation involving the “Envenomed Cache” that drops from the Ras Nsi end boss in the Tomb of the Nine Gods dungeon. The cache was introduced to fix a bug that caused loot from the boss to not appear sometimes. Obviously Ras Nsi can’t just drop loot directly, because he gets pushed off the platform. Trying to place the items on the platform instead proofed faulty, so the devs simple introduced a third chest, the “Envenomed Cache”, that hands out Ras Nsi’s goods.
It’s Unbound on Consoles
Now this is a pretty lame piece of news so far, but it gets interesting considering that the cache is bound on PC, but unbound on consoles. Among other things the cache drops Seal of the Brave, which means you can basically buy the current best-in-slot armor on the Auction House. More than that, as already mentioned, it creates an interesting situation ahead of the M13 launch. Seals of the Brave are required to buy one of the new weapon sets. You can not only pre-farm Seals, but also buy and/or stockpile Envenomed Caches. Main and Off-Hand are 1,500 Seals, so one character cap (1,200) is not enough to buy the weapons on launch day.
Even if you won’t be using the Envenomed Cache for yourself, their prices might skyrocket after launch. Since they are probably unintentionally unbound, chances are that the devs will correct this bug with the update. People in need of Seals of the Brave will look up the caches, the supply will quickly dry out, and prices rise.
Please note that all of this is just an educated guess, because it makes sense that the caches are not supposed to be unbound. Right now though it can’t hurt to farm TONG a little more than usually and buy the caches on the Auction House.
