The fine, upstanding folks of Acquisitions Incorporated have finally arrived in Neverwinter, and they’re looking for a few good (read: expendable) interns to aid them on their quest to acquire the legendary Heart of Fire. Over the course of the storyline, penned by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik of Penny Arcade fame, players will be entrusted with a number of offbeat tasks, including “infiltrating a Beholder convention, fulfilling the wishes of a mountain-sized giant and joining a royalty rescue mission set in the Manycoins Bank of Waterdeep.” And although it’s technically an unpaid internship, there’s sure to be some loot to be had along the way.
And to top it all off, the update’s release also marks the beginning of Neverwinter’s November Recruitment event, during which “any new characters who log in . . . will earn extra rewards while leveling as well as Neverember Incentives which can be exchanged for account wide rewards.” If you want all the details on Heart of Fire and its associated updates, you can find everything you need to know in the patch notes on the game’s official site.
