Neverwinter Astral Diamond Exchange Down

Posted on May 20, 2013 by Les Major

UPDATE: It has been announced that there will be a roll back. Progress made between 5:20 AM and 12:20 PM Pacific Time will be lost to all players. The Neverwinter team does apologize for this and plans to send players a gift for this issue.

In unfortunate news today, Neverwinter has hit it’s first big snag. Due to an exploit it seems the astral diamond exchange and the auction house were taken offline. Currently the ‘shard’ servers for the game are all offline.

This is a big problem to the legitimacy of the game since astral diamonds, one of the games currencies, can not only be used to buy items in the auction house, but also can be exchanged for “Zen”. Zen is the games currency players can purchase for real money. So not only would an exploit allow for purchasing of all auction house goodies, but all zen based purchases as well.Read More

I really wish I’d gotten on the Neverwinter wagon sooner with the wealth of content out there now. It’s been awhile since I’ve been this eager for a title to be released and it just keeps getting better. On the games official YouTube channel, there are several videos that highlight the games various zones or areas. The latest, Rothé Valley, focuses on a town taken over by Drow and even seems to carry over into the Underdark! Read onfor the video and check out their official youtube channel for much more!Read More


Foundry Perspective On Neverwinter

Posted on April 14, 2013 by Les Major

This being the fourth Beta weekend for Neverwinter right now I’ve been eager to get back into the game. I enjoyed the third beta weekend. During the week I did some homework getting to know Cryptic’s Star Trek Online so I could relate between the two games. The two do have their similarities but they are their own games as well. If you haven’t tried out Star Trek yet and you are a fan of the franchise I do recommend it. Even just to see the sights, it’s a fun trip.

One thing I didn’t get to try in Neverwinter was the Foundry. It turns out Star Trek Online even had a Foundry for gamers to create their own adventures. I’ve tried a couple Star Trek missions recently and I played some Neverwinter quests and both games have been quite enjoyable. Unfortunately I haven’t gotten in to the creation tool myself yet so the magic hasn’t been spoiled for me, but the system does seem to allow for quite a bit of story telling.Read More


Neverwinter Looking Like A Great Adventure

Posted on April 9, 2013 by Les Major

The new free to play Neverwinter MMO let beta testers give the game a whirl a few weekends back and I was lucky enough to get to be a part of the action. Unfortunately, I haven’t tried their Star Trek MMO, but after enjoying my time in the Forgotten Realms I do plan to see what the game based on Paramount’s franchise is like as well.Read More
