The weekend has come and gone, and with it a nice load of open beta drama for players of Neverwinter. A major exploit caused grief within the community, resulting ultimately in a 7 hour rollback of the servers to 5:20 AM PDT the morning of May 19.
Characters were reverted to that state, offenders were banned, and ZEN refunded. The team is continuing to look into pre-rollback exploit abusers, in hopes of further action to be taken against them.
Out of this mess though, comes some perks for those caught in the crossfire -- the Caturday Survivor's Pack. Contained within you'll find:
Cape of Catastrophe (image here).
This cape doesn't have stats, but is pretty cool looking.
Stone of Health
Heal yourself to full instantly -- Can't be used in PvP. Has 50 charges.
Adventurer's XP Booster (x2)
A pool of 4,000 bonus experience that you'll gain at a rate of +25%
Teleport Scroll: Protector's Enclave (x5)
We all know what these do.
A purely cosmetic headpiece, for the fashion section of your character sheet.
Additionally, the title 'Caturday Survivor' has been granted.
Any character made prior to 5 AM Pacific on Sunday, May 19th will receive the pack in their in-game mailboxes as an attachment to message "You Survived!"
Hopefully this marks the end of this catastrophe! Stay tuned to Curse for updates and future coverage.
