How long does it take to level to level 60 in WoW Classic?

Leveling to level 60 in Vanilla WoW certainly takes a lot of time. Joana set the speed leveling record back in Vanilla at 4 days and 20 hours in-game time. Do not expect to beat that or get anywhere close, even as a veteran player. read more

Gearing up in Neverwinter – What to do at level 80

This guide has been updated for mod 16, Undermountain!

So you’ve hit level 80 in Neverwinter, but you don’t know what to do now. Fear not, this is what most fresh level 80’s feel like. End-game in Neverwinter can be quite confusing, but this guide is designed to help you out on your way to gear up your character. This guide is also great for new level 80 alts. In this guide, I will be showing you how to get to around how to increase your item level after hitting level 80.

Maybe the best way to get a higher item level is by using Astral Diamonds. You can use AD to buy gear, enchants, mounts, companions and even to skip campaigns. See our Astral Diamond guide, for methods on how to make hundreds of thousands or even millions of AD per day.

Gearing Up Guide Index

Armor, Weapons, and Artifacts

First things first! Getting some new gear after hitting 80, to increase your item level. To see what gear is best in slot for your class, go to our Neverwinter class guides.

Undermountain 644 Ilvl Gear

At level 70 click Neverember’s Letter behind Sergeant Knox and get the quest “An Important Invitation”. This is a very short quest that will start the Undermountain campaign as well as reward you with a full set of Undermountain gear that is item level 644 as well as gear for your companion!

undermountain gear
Undermountain gear is decent and free!

Weapons:

The “An Important Invitation” will also provide you with a weapon set. Upgrade these to at least blue quality. When you get to level 80, there are several options open to you like the Alabaster set.

The Alabaster set is acquired from the “Master Expedition (Three Daily)” quest from Obaya Uday in the Yawning Portal.

Armor – Head – Arms – Feet

Spend your Seal of the Mountain on Spy’s Guild gear.

The next step when it comes to armor should be to get your best in slot items. To see suggestions for your class go to our Neverwinter class guides.

gear from the undermountain seal merchant

Cloak, Belt and Set

Don’t put too much refinement into your set before you got the one you want for your class and build. Some builds use a full set and others break them up or use items that aren’t part of sets. For the most part, getting your cloak and belt probably won’t be too hard. Some are bought through the AH for Astral Diamonds and others through campaign currencies.

Once you have the one you want, you can start putting RP into them to upgrade them. Try to get them to atleast Epic quality as quick as possible, working to upgrade the whole set at once, rather than one item at a time.

As of mod 16, not much has changed it terms of sets. Demon Lord’s Immortality is still BiS for most DPS classes.

Rings

Rings of the Shadowstalker from Chult are still good for DPS.

Ebonized Rings from Master Expeditions are also very good.

Shirts and Pants

For pants right now, good options are getting the Spy’s Guild or Protégé from the seal vendor. For your shirt the Ebony Stained shirts from Master Expeditions will often be best in slot.

Artifacts

Getting and upgrading all your Artifacts will take some RP and time. I would recommend getting all your best in slot artifacts before upgrading anything past Epic quality. Upgrading to Epic quality is done pretty quickly, but slows down towards Legendary.

The best way to go about refining your artifacts is working on all of them at the same time. Refine all of the to the next tier, instead of working on them one at a time.

As of mod 16 try to get the new artifacts for the most stats unless you are using a older artifact for a set.

Artifacts mod 16 neverwinter
Artifacts from Undermountain have higher stats

Enchantments

As a fresh level 80 you will get some enchantments with your free Undermountain gear. Focus on getting Bonding Runestones and ranking them before focusing on enchantments as they will give you the most stats. Then you can start on either refining your enchantments or buying better ones. Like with Artifacts it is much better to work on all of them at the same time. Take them all to rank 8, then 9, etc.

The most important enchantments to get are Weapon, along with Bonding Runestones (see below). Having a good Weapon Enchantment will make a huge difference in your DPS and on how fast you can do all sorts of content.

You will also want to get Dragon’s Hoard, Quartermaster’s and Fey Blessing Enchantments for your utility slots, so that you can earn extra RP. See our Refinement Guide, for more info.

Armor Reinforcement Kits

These can be made or bought on the Auction House and will boost your stats and item level a little bit. These are good to keep in mind when you need a little extra item level to be able to do new content.

Companions

Next up we have companions. These also give you higher item level. The problem with companions is that they can be really expensive. So you might have to wait with the ones you actually want. So before you can get the good companions, get some cheap rare and epic quality ones. For example the epic quality Redcap Powrie only costs around 10k AD, and does actually do a fair amount of damage.

Your end-game companions will mostly come from the AH. They are expensive but usually worth it as they can provide you with some big boosts to DPS, healing or to you defensive capabilities

In mod 16 most players will want to try to get a legendary Augment companion as they give the most stats.

Next up you want to pick your companions for the offense, defense and utility powers.

Gear for your companion will be rewarded as you progress through the undermountain campaign.

Bonding Runestones

Bonding Runestones are some of the most important items you are going to get. Buy the highest rank of these that you can afford. Bonding Runestones will grant you your companions stats.

bonding runestones

Mounts

As a new level 80 you can buy cheap mounts off the AH, or from the mount vendor, or they can be gotten from events. Slot each of your mounts with 2 or 3 insignia’s.

You will then want to look at what insignia bonuses you want for your character. Wanderer’s Fortune is a good one to get for any character as it will provide you with some extra RP every day to upgrade your gear. When you know what bonuses you want, start saving up for mounts with slots for these bonuses. Our Mount Insignia Bonus Guide has more info on this.

Finally you can start saving for your Legendary mount.

Example of a budget stable

Boons

Boons also affect item level. Work your way through the modules by doing daily and weekly quests. You can also buypass them by buying completion tokens from the auction house or from the zen store. Check out the campaign completion guide for the fastest ways to complete each module.

Joining a guild and activating the guild boons, is one of the quickest and best ways to increase your item level quickly.

Gearing up boons

Summary

In the end, Neverwinter is a game you need to take one day at the time. Work on everything mentioned above, a little bit every day and you will eventually get there. The main things to keep working at daily are:

  • Hitting Astral Diamond cap. AD is one of the most important factors to improve your character. Remember our Astral Diamond Guide.
  • Getting your best in slot gear.
  • Getting your Artifacts, Weapons and Enchantments so you can farm RP to upgrade them.
  • Working on your uncompleted modules.

    Neverwinter Campaign Completion Guide

    Neverwinter-campaign-completion-guide

    Welcome to our guide to completing Neverwinter Campaigns. In Neverwinter, there currently are 16 different modules, each with their own set of quests and tasks, called campaigns. To progress in the game you will need to complete these campaigns so that you can gain boons that will benefit your character in different ways and increase your item level.

    Generally, the newer a module is, the harder the campaign is. So as a fresh level 70, you might not be able to progress all the way on the newer campaigns. If you need are finding a campaign too hard, check out our Gearing Guide for Neverwinter, to upgrade your character first.

    Start doing as many of the campaigns as you can, since you can only progress a little bit every day or week on most of them. Do your daily and weekly quests and come back the next day or week. In the sections below we will go over each campaign in detail.

    Campaign Completion Guide Index

    Campaign Completion Boosters, Signet of Patronage, Genie’s Gifts and Events

    First things first, there are a few ways to make campaigns go faster, or even complete instantly.

    Campaign Completion Boosters

    These will complete campaigns instantly. They can be bought on the auction house or in the zen store. In the zen store, you can buy the full Campaign Buyout Bundle for 10000 zen, or Chult for 2000. Ravenloft costs 3000. The Heart of Fire and Undermountain are not yet available. Be sure to use your discount vouchers from invoking on these.

    On the auction, house prices start at around 400k AD on PC. This is actually a great deal and I recommend that if you want to complete campaigns fast, that you buy these instead of doing the campaigns. Campaigns take weeks to finish and are a lot of work. If you use our Astral Diamond Guide, you can make enough AD in a day to buy a completion booster, saving yourself weeks of grinding, and you can spend your time on more important tasks.

    neverwinter-campaign-completion-boosts
    Buying campaign completion boosts saves a lot of time.

    Signet of Patronage

    When you have already completed a campaign on a character, you can make Signets of Patronage. These items can be given to you other characters and when used will reduce the costs for completing campaigns. To make or use a signet, open up the campaign window for the campaign you want to do, and click the Create or Uthe se button in the upper left corner. These signets costs some 50k AD and some campaign currencies, that can be farmed pretty quickly.

    Signets of Patronage combined with Genie’s Gifts and / or 2 x campaign currency events, will allow you to finish off some campaigns really quickly.

    signet-of-patronage-campaign-completion
    Signet of Patronage lets you finish campaigns quicker.

    Genie’s Gift and Relics

    Genie’s Gift is an item that can be found in lockboxes or bought on the auction house, and turned in for Sharandar, Dread Ring, Icewind Dale, Tyranny of Dragons or Storm King’s Thunder campaign items. They are not too expensive so if you want a quick boost in either of those campaigns, buying a few is not a bad idea.

    The in-game description of Genie’s Gift does not list Storm King’s Thunder, but they can be used at Dereth Hope in Bryn Shanderor just by opening the SKT store in the campaign window.

    The best campaigns to spend Genie’s Gifts on is Dread Ring, as the whole campaign can be finished using them and Tyranny of Dragons.

    Combining Genie’s Gifts with a Signet of Patronage can be a quick way to advance a campaign.

    genies-gift

    You can also get relics from lockboxes which will work in the same way as Genie’s Gift. These are:

    • Illefarn Relic Fragment
    • Thayan Relic Fragment
    • Relic of the Dragon Empire
    • Reghed Barbarian Fragment

    Check the prices of these compared to the Genie’s Gift. At the moment on PC only the Reghed Barbarian Fragment is cheaper than a Genie’s Gift.

    2 x Campaign Currency Events

    Every once in a while you will see in your in-game calendar that there are events for 2 x campaign currencies for a few of the older modules like Sharandar, Dread Ring, Icewind Dale, Underdark and Tyranny of Dragons.

    When you see these events coming by, be sure not to do your weekly quests early in the week. Save all the weeklies for the weekend or else you won’t get double currencies for the week. You can go ahead and do the dailies every day as usual. Also remember that the event lasts a bit into the next week so you can do the weeklies again on monday, giving you currencies from weeklies amounting to 4 weeks of work in just a few days. Combine this with a Signet of Patronage and you will finish a campaign very quickly on alts.

    Modules / Campaigns

    In general you should work on as many campaigns at the same time as you can. You can start working on The Maze Enigne and Elemental Evil at level 60 and Sharandar at level 64. If you are powerleveling your character, level 60 to 70 takes no time at all, so there isn’t really a point to starting these before level 70. But if this is your first character in Neverwinter, leveling takes a bit more time, so you can start these campaigns and level at the same time.

    At level 80, start doing all possible campaigns for maximum efficiency. Begin with Undermountain as the intro quest is very easy and will give you a full set of gear at the end. The Maze Engine and Underdark is very fast and easy to work at while doing other campaigns. Some campaigns might be a bit hard depending on your gear and item level, so you can either choose to wait a bit until you improve your character a bit or you can try to find fellow players to help you for most of it. Joining a helpful guild is one of the best ways to find people that can help you with quests.

    Completing The Maze Engine

    The Maze Engine can be started at level 60 and is pretty straight forward. Do a series of quests from Bruenor Battlehammer in Mantol-Derith. When you have finished a few, you need to complete dailies to unlock the next few. Come back every day and do the available quests.

    Farming The Maze Engine Currencies and Items

    • Tales of Adventure: Used to advance the campaign, can only be gained from quests from Bruenor.
    • Alliance Supplies: Used only for apperance items, also from quests from Bruenor.

    Completing Elemental Evil

    This one can be started at level 60 as well. There’s really no trick to this one, just start the quests from Archdruid Morningdawn, and work your way through the quests and zones. Unlike other campaigns, there are no cooldowns in Elemental Evil, so you could do it all in one go and be finished with it if you wanted to.

    Completing Sharandar

    Sharandar can be started at level 64, so at level 70 it should be pretty easy and quick. The thing that will possibly hold you back and take time in Sharandar, is the Feywild Sparks, so buying Genie’s Gifts for additional Feywild Sparks will speed things up.

    Unlock the main advancement tasks, then the boons in Sharandar, before eventually getting the key, although the key isn’t really needed for anything anymore. Item Reward tasks should be skipped entirely.

    Farming Sharandar Currencies and Items

    • Feywild Spark: Doing the quests from Merrisara Winterwhite will unlock the daily and weekly quests to obtain Feywild Sparks. Additional ones can be gotten from Genie’s Gifts
    • Gold Crescent: You won’t be short of Gold Crescents, as they are rewards from pretty much everything in Sharandar. But if you need more you can buy them with Fomorian Concoctions from the Bounty Master.
    • Vibrant Seedling: Are gotten from daily quests in the first area, Blighted Grove.
    • Abjuring Charm: From dailies in the second area, Dark Fey Enclave.
    • Iliyanbruen Blades: From dailies in the third area, Realm of Malabog.
    • Fomorian Concoction: Drops from any mob in Sharandar, can also be purchased but has little value.

    Completing Underdark

    Underdark is a super easy campaign to complete. You will get everything you need while doing Dread Ring, Tyranny of Dragons and Icewind Dale. Do the Demon Hunting quests in these zones from the Demon Hunter, and you will advance in both Underdark from doing the actual Heroic Encounter and in the other campaigns from the quest rewards.

    Farming Underdark Currencies and Items

    • Faerzress: These are farmed in the Demonic Heroic Encounters. There are three different HE’s in each zone, the Demonic Encounter is the fastest one, and players will usually post in the chat if one is up. Farming Demogorgon, Epic Demogorgon, and Underdark skirmishes will yield even more Faerzress, and nowadays even the epic demo only takes about 3 minutes.
    • Demonic Ichor: Is also dropped in Demogorgon and skirmishes, but is pretty much useless except for maybe the Drowcraft shirt and pants for new chars.
    • Twisted Ichor: From Epic Demogorgon which is now easy to farm but the weapons you can buy with these are now useless.

    Completing Dread Ring

    Dread Ring can be done just by using Genie’s Gifts, but check the Auction House first as buying the Dread Ring Completion token is probably cheaper than buying Genie’s Gifts.

    The boon tasks in Dread Ring are pretty easy and quick. The Gauntlet tasks add a bit of work but can be skipped. The gauntlets aren’t really necessary but can be used to make a bit of extra AD or refinement per day.

    The main quests you should pay attention to is the daily lair quest from Sergeant Knox and the Demon Hunting Quest from the Demon Hunter.

    Farming Dread Ring Currencies and Items

    • Thayan Cipher: The most important of the Dread Ring items. You can get two per day, one from the lair quest and one from the demon hunting quest.
    • Thayan Scroll: Can only be acquired from the Bag of Thayan Treasure at the end of the lairs, and from the weekly quest “The Red Wizards” from Knox. If you want more you need to use Genie’s Gifts.
    • Vanguard  Scrip: From all of the quests in Dread Ring. Some quests only award you with Vanguard Scrips, and can be skipped, unless you need a lot. The Bounty Master will also trade Onyx Fragments, which drop a lot or can be bought cheap on the AH, for Vanguard Scrips.
    • Onyx Fragment: Can drop from any mob in Dread Ring.
    • Seal of the Shadowmantel: Is from the Valindra’s Tower dungeon but is pretty much useless.

    Completing Tyranny of Dragons

    Tyranny of Dragons can be a bit grindy if you are not using a Signet of Patronage or Genie’s Gifts. The boon tasks are however separate from the rest of the tasks, and I recommend you skip all other tasks as the rewards are very outdated and there is nothing you need for endgame there. There are quite a few different currencies for Tyranny of Dragons, many of them are not used for the boons.

    The first five tasks require common campaign currencies that you get from completing dailies and weeklies in Well of Dragons and from the Harpers in Protector’s Enclave. For the fourth and fifth one, you will need “Haarl’s Treatise on Dragonkind” and “Breyer’s Draconic Investigations”, which is dropped in the Shores of Tuern skirmish but can be bought on the AH as well for nearly nothing. The sixth and seventh boon will also require “Linu’s Favor” and “Incantations of the Dragon Queen” which is dropped by Tiamat or bought on the AH.

    Farming Tyranny of Dragon Currencies and Items

    • Linu’s Favor: The were once hard to come by but can be farmed quickly and easily now. You can either do the “Rewards for the Hoard” quest by clicking the wagon in the Well of Dragons camp. You can farm the items for the quest yourself but buying “Dragon Hoard Coffers” on the auction house is a much faster and pretty cheap way of completing the quest and getting “Linu’s Favor”. Additionally farm Tiamat now, which no longer has an entry timer and most groups can kill him in about 5 minutes.
    • Dragon Hoard Coffer: These are random drops in Well of Dragons or rewards from Heroic Encounters. The easiest way to farm Dragon Hoard Coffers and Coins is to run Dragon Herald Heroic Encounters that start a quarter to every hour in Well of Dragons.
    • Dragon Hoard Coins: These are pretty easy to come by. Drop from almost any Tyranny of Dragons content and reward from most quests. Drops a lot from Dragon Heralds.
    • Page of Arcane Lore: From weekly quests from Elminster in Well of Dragons and from the Various Harper’s in Protector’s Enclave. Only around 45 Pages of Arcane Lore can be gotten each week if you do all the dailies and weeklies, so it might take less time to farm AD and buy Genie’s Gifts.
    • Cult Secret: From various quests in Well of Dragons. Don’t need many for the boons.
    • Fallen Dragon Fang: From quests in Well of Dragons, not needed for the boons.
    • Dragon Sigil: Yet another one that you don’t need for the boons. Can be farmed through quests.
