Patch Note Parser: NW.105.20181022a.19

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.19, in which the devs continue to battle the various Heart of Fire launch issues.

Another Experience Glitch?

The amount of experience given by Basement Investigations has been reduced, and the repeatability of this quest has been reduced to once every hour rather than being immediately repeatable.

The devs adjust some more experience handed out by a repeatable low-level quest. They already nerfed the Illusionist’s Gambit skirmish after players found out you could easily farm bronze completions to level up and get those Incentives from the alt promo event. It seems Basement Investigations might have suffered from the same issue. That’s why it now gives less experience and is on a one-hour cooldown. For players farming the campaign getting to the Weekly Haul just got a little more annoying. The weekly quests won’t quite get you to the cap, leaving Basement Investigations as your only source of Acorns until you unlock the skirmish.

Charge Rewards Fixes

The first tier of Charge Rewards can once again properly be claimed. Due to the nature of the fix, anyone who had previously claimed this tier can claim one more set of five keys. We do not consider that single extra claim to be an exploit.

The second notable set of fixes was done to the Winter Charge Rewards. Some players weren’t able to claim the rewards at all, and the devs additionally had to deactivate the first reward tier because of a bug. They originally announced a fix within two weeks, but thankfully got this one done fast so that players should now be able to claim their Enchanted Keys. The fact that they even accept an extra claim shows that they put the players first here, which is nice to see.

If you can’t claim anything from the Promo vendor, you still have to go through support though.

The text on the Winter Charge Rewards Promo event now properly instructs players to go to the Promotions Agent instead of the Reward Claims Agent.

Talking about the promo vendor, it wasn’t too clear to all players that the usual Reward Claims Agent isn’t the one to look out for. Instead, there’s an extra “Promotion Agent” located between Knox and the Hall of Justice. So this tooltip change might at least help a bit.

    “…Basement Investigations… reduced to once every hour rather than being immediately repeatable.”

    Oh, for Christ’s Sake, why? This is my first experience of the Weekly Haul mechanic, so now that one of my two new Alts still has 50 Acorns left to get this week, I have to spend 5 hours instead of 30 minutes? Or is it 10 hours instead of an hour? I forget if it’s 5 or 10 acorns for the bloody thing.

    It’s things like this that cause people to say:

    “Craptrick? Fucking Wankers! Arse Holes, One and All!”

    It was a good system, as if there was 30 minutes left to weekly clock reset, I could run that 5 or 6 times to finish my weekly acorns.

    This is beyond annoying.

      PS: This mod sucks, but the Weekly Haul mechanic is actually really good as implemented in Barovia and Omu, and it’s pretty decent (though clearly a first version) in Soshenstar.

    Oh, by the way:
    “There are two Fleeces. The one from Illusionist’s Gambit will be renamed to Enchanted Fleece in a later build.”

    There are also two LINSEED, one from Summer Festival.

    What’s the visual equivalent of “cloth-eared”? Well, that’s what you are.

    Once you unlock the skirmish on any character, you can farm it for your acorns. The skirm is easy and quick. So don’t loose heart, if you’ve been maxing your progress each week you should probably have the skirm unlocked next week.
