Neverwinter Neverwinter Leveling Guides 12

Neverwinter Leveling Guide 1 – 70

neverwinter leveling guide

Welcome to our Neverwinter Leveling Guide! Leveling in Neverwinter is relatively quick and easy. You will mostly be following the glowing sparks that show you the next quest objective so you don’t waste much time figuring out where to go. This guide has been updated in 2018, and is up to date with module 12, The Swords of Chult.

Before we start with the actual Neverwinter Leveling Guide we will go over some general leveling tips.

Neverwinter Leveling Guide Index

Gear and Items:

  • Put Azure Enchantments in every utility slot you have for bonus XP gain. Get atleast rank 5, these only cost around 200AD and boost your XP gain by 7.5% each. I usually go with the rank 7’s, at rank 8 they become a lot more expensive.
  • Mounts increase runspeed which helps with leveling speed, but you can also get Insignias of Prosperity from the Auction House that you can equip to your mount that give bonus XP. You will want mounts with regal, enlightened and universal slots, and slot the with Prosperity Insignias. You can get cheaps mounts for gold or on the AH, or from events.
  • Inscribed Garments can be purchased from the Zen Market and will give you 20% extra XP.
  • Ensorcelled Items and other scaling can be bought on the AH. This is powerful equipment that scales with your level and can be used at any level! A full list of scaling gear can be found here. I am usually not bothered with much gear as levelling is so fast anyway.
  • Get a companion at level 16. Companions are a really important aspect of Neverwinter. Companions come in different types like Healers, DPS and Tanks. Get one that complements your class and playstyle and they will really help you out. If you can, get a epic quality companion for the toon that you are levelling. I usually get the Redcap companion as it is a cheap epic quality striker that will help you plow through content.
  • You can give your Companions high level gear that will make them a lot more powerful.
  • Bagspace: If you can get some bags, this will help you out a lot. The more room you have in your inventory the better.

XP Bonuses and Extra XP Gain:

  • Invoke to the gods (after level 11). Pressing CTRL + I next to an Altar (found in Neverwinter or as drops from mobs) will have your character pray. You will get stat boost, potions etc, and you will get XP. Quite a lot of XP acutally, so pray as often as you can.
  • Experience Booster and Epic Experience Booster from the Zen Market. If you have Zen or is willing to buy Zen i would recommend that you buy an Epic Experience Booster.  You will get 2x XP all the way up to level 70 and will level twice as fast. These are also rewards from events sometimes, like the Winter festival.
  • Double XP events happen quite often and it can be wise to leave leveling alts to these periods. Check the calendar in game to see when the next XP weekend is!
  • Being a VIP member will give you 10% extra XP.
  • Most guilds have the Experience Bonus Boon available, so join a guild to get a 3-30% XP bonus.

TIP: If you run out of quests in any of the zones listed below, and you are still too low level to progress to the next. Either return to Sergeant Knox to see if he has quests for you, or simply run a skirmish or dungeon. read more

Devoted Cleric Guide

The Devoted Cleric is pretty versatile for a healer and have quite a few utility skills and when soloing they can do quite a good amount of damage. For grouping, you want to focus on debuffing/buffing and healing.

This Devoted Cleric is meant as a general guideline. To get the most out of your character, tailor him or her to your playstyle. The Neverwinter Reddit is a good place to start if you want to learn more about your class. More builds and further info can also be found at MMOMinds. read more

Neverwinter: Linu’s Favor Farming Guide

linu's favor farming guide

Linu’s Favor is a campaign currency used in the Tyranny of Dragons(ToD) campaign. In the first 90% or so of progression you only need to get a couple which is pretty easy, but at the last two boons, you will need a combined 80 Linu’s favor to unlock them which will take some time.

There are two ways of getting Linu’s favour, the quickest way is to combine both of these. First, you can donate three different other currencies that you get while doing all things ToD related. You donate them to a cart in the middle of the Well of Dragons, next to Elminster, if you have the Rewards for the Hoard quest that will reward you with a Linu’s Favor when you reach 1500 points. read more

Black Ice Farming Guide – Fastest way to get Black Ice

black ice farming guide

So it’s time to go to Icewind Dale, and get your Black Ice Farming on? Black Ice is a valuable resource in Neverwinter. You can use it for numerous things like upgrading your gear and buying special items. You can refine raw black ice that you find through the black ice shaping profession that you advance as you play through the Icewind Dale campaign. You need a lot of black ice to progress and to get your gear so knowing where to get it is key.

  • Quests – First of all you get your black ice through Icewind Dale quests in Icewind Pass and Dwarven Valley. This is black ice and not raw black ice so you don’t have to do anything with it to use it.
  • Kessell’s Retreat – This is a level 70 skirmish that rewards you with some raw black ice.
  • Farming – The quickest way to get raw Black Ice is to farm it in Icewind Pass or Dwarven Valley, but you need to use Black Ice Shaping to make it into regular Black Ice. This method is even faster if you buy a Hammerstone Runeforge Kit in the Zen store. The best places to farm is in either of the PvP areas in the two IWD zones as you get extra black ice there. The whole Dwarven Valley zone is also good, and in my opinion better than Icewind Pass as it has fewer players generally and has a better view, meaning fewer hills and stuff that obstruct your view so that you can easily spot Black Ice. There also seems to be more Black Ice nodes in Dwarven Valley.

When you have the raw Black Ice, you need to shape it to Black Ice so that you can use it. Buying some rare or epic Cryomancers from the AH is smart when doing this as it will speed things up considerably and Cryomancers are pretty cheap at the moment (at least on pc). read more

Guild Marks Farming Guide

guild marks farming

Guild marks are a currency that you use to buy various items in your stronghold, like the powerful Dragonflight armor. You get guild marks from donating practically any items in the game to the mimic in your stronghold. Some things are more valuable than others when it comes to guild marks. You can either farm for your guild marks or you can buy vouchers and other items from the auction house to donate. Either way, doing this during a double Guild Mark event is preferable.

Farming Guild Marks

The cheapest way to get Guild Marks is by farming items yourself that you can donate. And the most stable way to farm it is doing Heroic Events in your guilds Stronghold. If you have a big and active guild, most guilds will do runs most days where they do the epic Heroic Events. The advantage of doing the epic ones is that they give additional rewards in addition to the influence that you will use to donate for guild marks. These rewards include resonance stones and companion only gear. However, all Heroic Events give the same amount of Influence and is capped daily at 400. The mobs in the Heroic Events also drop vouchers that can be donated for extra Guild Marks. The smaller Heroic Events can be soloed by most players. I recommend doing these daily for free and easy Guild Marks. read more

Voninblod Farming Guide

Voninblod Farming Guide

Voninblod is one of the most important items’s in Storm King’s Thunder. You need it for pretty much everything, like getting gear, progressing the campaign and getting boons, so you are going to be farming a lot of it.  The ways to obtain voninblod are:

  • Daily Quests – This is pretty slow but you are going to be doing them anyway and every little bit helps
  • By clicking Ostorian Relics that are scattered on the ground in Bryn Shander, Lonelywood and Cold Run
  • From doing Heroic Events in the Storm King’s Thunder zones

So what is the fastest way to farm Voninblod? The fastest method I have found is doing a combination of them, mostly farming relics and HE’s. If you want to solo, collecting the relics is the quickest way. The best places I have found is in the woods around the town in the lonely wood zone, and along the shoreline in Cold Run. But the fastest way to farm Voninblod is doing HE’s and picking up relics along the way. For this, Lonelywood is the best zone. This is because it is a lot more populated than the other zones. There is almost always people running HE’s in Lonelywood. Another reason Lonelywood is good for Voninblod is that there are a lot of relics scattered between each HE, so when running from one to another you often find them and most people doing HE’s will leave them. I can usually farm around 6000-7000 voninblod per hour with this method in lonelywood and I have not found anything else close to this. read more
