There has been a lot of massive hype for Mod 17. As we know just a few months back, they have changed the entire game scenarios with Neverwinter Mod 16, so each and every player is expecting something cool, big and really worth gonna happen in next Mod.
As we just got to know from official blog, Neverwinter Mod 17 is going live on 13th August 2019 but they have already made it available for players on Preview Server.
We already have an account and characters over neverwinter preview server. So, we just updated Neverwinter’s Preview Server with Mod 17. We haven’t test every bit of thing on preview server, but we assure you that you will get enough information about Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising from this blog post.
We will update Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising post on a regular basis when ever we progress further and get anything new.
There are going to be many changes with Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising and in this post we are going to highlight a few of them. This is not complete list yet, though here is a list of some stuff we have seen and checked of Neverwinter Preview Server.
New Story-line Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising: There are lots of updates are going to happen 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.
- 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 will be a 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 will be complete overhaul of fashion module of Neverwinter in Mod 17. There will be new appearance tab just after the character tab. We will be using 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.
New PvP Extension: There will be new PvP map with brand new PvP Rewards + new Pvp season. PvP has been under the radar of exclusion from long time. Finally, we are going to have some new PvP additions. Moreover, now we can get unique rewards which includes PVE items, armor enchantments enchanting stones and mark of potency. We can also get 1000iLvL gears for PvP from zen store as well.
One New Weapon Set: We will get our hands on new artifact weapon set named Lionheart Weapon Set. It has very similar stats, iLvL and base damage as Alabaster Set. but it has a different kind of bonus
“Set will increase arp and defense by 5%”
When you and your allies are outnumbered in combat, your critical avoidance, deflection and awareness increased by 2.5%
When you and your allies are outnumbered enemies, your critical strike, accuracy and combat advantage increased by 2.5%
New Rings of Undermountain: Right Now, at the time of Mod 16, This game has some legendary and non legendary rings like Ring of the Shadowstalker +5 are BIS simply because of Swordsman’s Perk. In Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising, we are going to get around 14 new ultimate and super awesome rings with the same kind of bonus with far better iLvL and stats. Some of them are below:
New Artifact: There will be a new artifact set called Halaster’s Set which includes Halaster’s Blast Scepter, Tinfoil Chain of Madness and Papier-Mache Belt of Madness from the trial (ToMM)
“This set has very strange bonus “ When you stand still for 6 seconds your Damage and Movement Speed will be increased by 10% for 6 seconds”
Note: Halaster’s Set is going to talk of the town soon. As there will be lots of discussion about this set either it’s best or worst.
New Companion Gear: Well, Well, Well, Well, So they listened to the community and finally we are going to have some crazy amount of stuff for our companions. In Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising, we are going to have good amount of drop for companion gears from Expeditions of Mod 17. These gears will have crazy stats like 12k Combat Advantage and 1010 iLvL. There are around 36 new gears on preview server at the time of writing mod 17 guide.
