Lead Designer Scott Shicoff is at it again. Following up on promises he made a few months ago, the Cryptic Studios team is making some changes to the level 61-70 experience in their free to play MMORPG, Neverwinter. Initially the changes will only be rolled out to the PC version of the game but console players will also get the same perks in a future update.
This round of updates focuses on player feedback about the difficulty of monsters in the late game and the time it took to level from 61-70 in comparison with previous leveling experience gains. Take a look at the list of changes:
We still wanted a slight difficulty increase in these endgame zones, but the numbers we were using previously were definitely too high.
The amount of damage enemies do has been further reduced from critters level 61+.
We’ve increased the amount of XP given by missions in the Elemental Evil zones.
This will make your trip from 60 to 70 noticeably faster.
Wrappers that were looking for 16 quests to be completed are now only looking for 8.
