Neverwinter Uncensored’s patch note parser runs through any bigger patch notes and offers additional context to the changes that were made to the game. Today we are taking a closer look into version “NW.105.20181022a.16“.
In today’s patch the devs continue fixing the bugs and inconsistencies that made it to the live server during the “Heart of Fire” launch. Many Workshop related things are getting adjusted once again. First and foremost we cross our fingers that now finally nobody should get stuck during the introductory quest line any longer. There’s nothing more annoying than not being able to play the game.
The second key area remains the Acquisitions Incorporated campaign. We’re not sure what’s up with “Re-Retrieval Operation”, which still doesn’t resolve properly, but at least there’s now another way of getting you to the Weekly Haul by repeating “Basement Investigation”. This should hopefully also help players that are unable to reach the campaign currency cap on the first week.
These fixes to low-level quests in the Neverdeath Graveyard zone might not seem like a huge issue. Since a lot of new players are naturally coming in for a new module however, it’s bad timing. Especially since the quests resolve the area and are a major part of the overall story line.
Another notable fix is the one to the premium campaign companion Wiggins. It now finally gives bonus Acorns. This to be honest might sound like a minor issue, but that’s a 2,500 ZEN buy’s main feature not working at all. As putzboy noted in one of the threads reporting the issue, the devs should really have taken the companion down as long as it wasn’t of any use.
Deactivating a broken system that works in favor of players (IG XP farm) within hours is no biggie. But then you let the community buy a broken pet off the ZEN Market for days? That doesn’t look too good. At least Lead Designer Thomas Foss posted in a bug thread that you can inquire customer support about the possibility of getting the Acorns you’re missing.
Is the skirmish now back for good? We’ll see, can’t be too sure these days…
Both come with new rewards that we have previewed here.
