Players who log in to Neverwinter starting today may find themselves wrapped up in a new cursed encounters of the third module kind. That is to say, Neverwinter has just released its third module named Curse of Icewind Dale which comes complete with brand new heroic encounters, a new PvE campaign, open world PvP campaigns and an additional paragon path for the Hunter Ranger class.
In a bid to promote more open world encounters, Neverwinter’s Heroic encounters and PvP campaigns encourage players to group up to complete scaling spontaneous quests and new PvP oriented objectives which thanks to Icewind Dale’s newly introduced opposing mercenary groups, allow adventurers to compete for new rewards across the module’s newest zones. Of course, Icewind Dale also comes with the usual instanced PvP and PvE content including a new epic-level Skirmish which pits adventurers against the evil wizard, Akar Kressell.
Throughout Icewind Dale’s Icewind Pass and Dwarven valley players may collect the mysterious Black Ice resource which is used to craft the MMOs most powerful gear to date, complete with your choice of corrupted or purified stats.
