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.18“, in which we’d like to highlight two major changes / fixes to the Workshop system that will majorly impact players.
RIP Gold Mine
Well, it was fun while it lasted. The gold mine discovered by Rainer goes out of business as all Supplements are changed from giving a flat 25 Silver to level-dependent values. Or to put it bluntly: Supplements now sell for less than you produce them for, effectively ending the farm using those tasks. We think it can probably be classified as oversight and not a true nerf. Being able to amass so much Gold probably wasn’t what the devs intended when designing the new Workshop system. Player were literally able to “craft” thousands of Gold per day using multiple alts on big accounts.
As result Gold prices plummeted and the market crashed, which was quite hilarious given the importance of the currency in the Workshop system. Anyway, now players will have to find other ways of making enough Gold to keep their Workshop running. There are still tasks that dish out a net gain, but it’s nowhere near to what Supplements were able to produce.
Delivery Box Glitch Fix
The ability to amass gold was additionally bolstered by a glitch of the Delivery Box. The system allows players to batch run a certain amount of tasks when they’re not online. But once their box is filled, tasks are supposed to stop. Turns out that wasn’t really the case in some situations. Upon logging in all “queued” tasks were sometimes completing successively with a short delay and could be claimed. All players had to do was make sure that their box never fully filled, because that would stop the process of instant completions. That was obviously a bug as well and is getting fixed.
Along with the aforementioned correction to Gold sell values of Supplements, the Gold market should recovery quickly. It also means that you should hold on to any currency you have left.
