Welcome to our Neverwinter Astral Diamonds guide! In this guide we will go over all the possible scenarios for making AD in Neverwinter. From the basics to investing in the auction house to good old fashion farming!
The Basics of Astral Diamond Making
The basics of Astral Diamond making are pretty simple, lets go over a few points.
- Run one random dungeon and a skirmish every day on all your characters. This is the meat and potatoes of your AD making process. The more characters you have, the more you make, so consider making alts and getting them to at least level 12.
- Weekly Quests – The Ballad of Baphoment from Bruenor in Undedark, Arcane Reservoir from Sharandar, The Red Wizards in Dread Ring, Protecting the Portal from Harper Boward in PE, Reclaiming the Hoard in Well of Dragons and Biggrin’s Tomb in Icewind Dale can be completed for an extra 4500 AD each per week.
- Salvaging gear is a great way to reach the 36k AD refine cap. After running dailies with all your alts, farm salvage gear and send it to all your alts.
- Having VIP really helps with AD making. You get daily lockbox keys, and on average you will get items worth 20-50K AD per day but can get mounts worth 10 million. You will also get bonus salvage and other bonuses. If you are serious about AD making get at least rank 8 to remove AH costs.
- Invoke when you can to make extra AD.
- Professions can provide you with extra AD. Leadership is the best profession to make AD but is very slow to level, see our Profession Guide for the fastest ways to level.
- Have Dragon’s Hoard, Quartmaster’s and Fey Blessing Enchantments and a mount with Wanderer’s Fortune on for max Refinement. More RP means more AD as you can refine enchantments to sell.
- Pay attention to the calendar. Although there are no longer many 2x AD events, there are other events that you can profit from. Bonus RP and x2 runes and enchants events can be used to farm RP to upgrade enchantments. The same goes with 2x seals events for more salvage.
Converting Currencies to Astral Diamonds
Making AD by converting currencies won’t be your main way of making AD, but can help out quite a lot. Especially Seal of the Protector that you will get tons of doing other stuff.
