For the record, we love Neverwinter’s patch numbering system because what schoolyard chum won’t be gushing about how much he or she loves “Patch NW.123.20210105a.8?”
In any case, Patch NW.123.20210105a.8 is indeed here, and Patch NW.123.20210105a.8 will delight and awe you with its offerings. Notably for people still upset over the recent combat rebalance
, there are item level changes for Merchant Guild Hall, Nest Egg, and Orc Barracks instances. Plus, “content that scales players up to 30,000 Item Level now properly scales down to 36,000, reduced from 40,000,” PWE says.
This update has a little bit of everything, including fixes for a couple of companions, and a beatdown to the Envenomed Storyteller’s Journal artifact, which apparently was a little too broken in its benefit. The Wizard class is seeing the most improvements with world-renowned Patch NW.123.20210105a.8. Their arcane singularity, evocation, icy terrain, and magic missile abilities have all been buffed by a good amount.
