The celebrations of Neverwinter’s 5-year anniversary is in full swing for most players, but there are two major issues that Lord Neverember (with a little help of the devs) hopes to resolve with an emergency closure of Protector’s Enclave today.
Issues Completing “It’s a Celebration” Quest
First of all the newly introduced gift mechanic that requires players to complete a simply daily quest isn’t working for everyone. It’s annoying because the rewards are a major part of the Jubilee this year. It explains why the devs come in on a Saturday and will run an emergency maintenance on 8 AM Pacific (When is this for me?). For affected adventurers the quest chain will completely reset and they’ll have to start over. To not miss out on any rewards the event will be extended. The new end date is now Saturday, June 23 at 7:30am Pacific.
Foreign Merchant Troubles
Still unconfirmed is whether the Foreign Merchant troubles will also get resolved with the maintenance. It seems like the merchants in the adventure areas eventually get stuck because they don’t properly reset once they reach the end of their path. Over the course of a day, all instances gradually bug out, making the Stronghold map the only reliable way to get Bountys. Occasionally an instance starts working again, but it’s not really reliable and finding a merchant can be quite a pain. We definitely hope this is included in the fix!
*** UPDATE *** Apparently the a Foreign Merchant fix won’t make it in time for this year’s Jubilee.
