New Story-line Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising: As we know, they have done so many changes and updates with Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising like New PvP Map, Appearance overhaul, New Race, New Gears, Locations, Maps, New Challenges, Master Expedition etc but as always the most effective content of Neverwinter expansion  is “STORY LINE”. To face the new challenges, fight unique foes, to overcome and handle the disturbance between the gith and the illithid in undermountain, Which eventually leeds everything to new area STARDOCKS.

New Trial: ToMM – Tower of the Mad Mage: Finally we get a chance to make  fight against Halaster Blackcloak. Well, we feel it as one of the most challenging contents we have ever experienced in Neverwinter history. These are few pointers you should consider before giving a try to ToMM. 

  • iLvL requirement is 24K iLvL to unlock and enter ToMM
  • Requires 2-3 tanks; 2-3 healers; 4-6 dps as usual
  • New enemy stats increases to 30k in Halaster Blackcloak, 
  • Halaster Blackcloak force player stats to increase to 80k and  CA 130k as enemies stat rating increase by 12k.
  • New trial against Halaster has most difficult mechanics of neverwinter which involves dps checks, heal checks, mandatory aggro management from tanks. (we will write a complete guide on mechanics soon)
  • Lots of new gears with higher iLvL and stats drops from Halaster Blackcloak like New Artifact, Belt and Waist
  • It seems even Dps Needs 370k HP to avoid the one-shot mechanics in the trial. 

Halaster Blackcloak hits very hard and comes with very hard mechanics which needs 18 to 20 cross checks to crack from each kind of class. So, it’s going to be very hard for you guys inside ToMM. get ready face wraith and powerful strike of Halaster Blackcloak. 🙂 

New Player Race: Gith   Here you after a long wait of years there is new race called Gith in neverwinter. You will be helping Gith community in Neverwinter Mod 17 Along with that you can also be one of them by creating new character with New Player Race Gith. (or you can reroll race) More detail on unlocking Gith will be posted soon.


Appearance System: There is complete overhaul of fashion module of Neverwinter in Mod 17. There is a new appearance tab just after the character tab. Now, We can use new library of dye and colors to alter the overall look of our character. We can modify each and every piece of gear with new color combinations. 

Early-Game Content Touch-ups: Love it OR Hate it but with the release of Neverwinter Mod 16 they have made neverwinter lovable for new players. Some of the vets might not agree and love the way they modify the entire game in mod 16 but previous mod did a great job to grab the attention of new players in the community. And in Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising they just added one more step to it and retouch the early game content from core.

Protector’s Enclave Remodeling: They are saying that Lord Neverember invested more gold in Protector Enclave. We have new sky, improved texture, new overhaul designs in protector’s enclave. They have moved events area to mount area and now mount area have moved to the center of the protector’s enclave.


Notification Improvements: Simple yet effective, we have new notification setting. We can set everything up by pressing ESC key and click on Notification Setting. There you can simple tick or untick each and every option you wanna see in chat notifications e.g if you do not want to see trade notifications or lockbox notifications in chat window then you can simply disable it.
