Even if it sounds a bit like a pair of weapons you might find in Diablo, the Swords of Chult update arriving to Neverwinter is definitely a bit more than that. Neverwinter players will be seeing a new endgame Skirmish and a host of PvP updates.
The Tomb of Annihilation social hub of Port Nyanzaru has come under attack in the update’s new five-player Skirmish “The Merchant Prince’s Folly”, which will see groups head off foes that were created during the adventures through the jungles of Chult.
The Swords of Chult update is also introducing several adjustments for PvP’ers, including changes to armor penetration, PvP gearing, the replacement of the Tenacity stat, and the introduction of diminishing returns on control effects. The update is also bringing several quality-of-life changes to dungeon queuing, the campaign system, and the refinement system.
The Swords of Chult will be drawn upon PC players on Tuesday, October 24th. More information is expected in the coming weeks, but for now, details can be found on the game’s website.
Looks like there’s no rest for the adventurers of Neverwinter. It doesn’t sound like a particularly beefy update, but we’re sure players will get some enjoyment out of the new Skirmish and PvP’ers will definitely have some opinions on the proposed PvP adjustments.
