Adventurers! It’s time to return home as the battle continues in Neverwinter’s latest expansion, The Cloaked Ascendancy. Lord Neverember has reclaimed the River District, a new zone once home to the rich and noble, but new perils in the form of mad wizards threaten his rule. The city needs its heroes more than ever!

In addition to a completely new storyline, The Cloaked Ascendancy brings back a remastered version of the Spellplague Caverns with both standard and epic versions available. If short and sweet is more your style, the Illusionist’s Gambit skirmish offers a new experience every time. We hear it can get rather fowl for some players…

To welcome the latest expansion to Neverwinter, we’re here to give you a few tips to help you on your journey in unraveling the mad wizards’ plans:

  • Remember to discard used passes to clear up your inventory
    In the River District, locate dig sites scattered across the zone and see what treasures have been left behind! The dig sites require passes to enter and cannot be accessed more than once per hour. Once you have the necessary items to obtain a pass, feel free to discard it as it can take up precious room in your inventory.
  • Speak with Lord Neverember to replay initial chapters
    As you discover the origins of the mad wizards in the new campaign, you’ll undoubtedly receive new achievements and titles. After all, adventuring can be quite character forming! Find out if you’re Kind of a Big Deal, a Great Person, or Just Alright with new titles to chase after. Speak with Lord Neverember to replay the initial chapters if you’ve missed any achievements or titles. You never know what secrets you’ll find if you take that extra trip around the corner!
  • Questgivers aren’t the only source of quests
    Though the NPC Ostaram Copperwise will give you the main daily quest, be on the lookout for additional ones in the River District. These reward Evidence of Evil to help players progress through the campaign. Questgivers aren’t the only source of quests; foes can be helpful too!
