So our fearless leader asked me if I wanted to cover the new Neverwinter MMO. As a long-time enjoyer of MMOs, D&D and the Neverwinter Nights games in particular, I said “hell yes!”.
I’m about an hour in at the moment and almost level 5 with my first character, Baran Bitterblade, Half-Orc Great Weapon Fighter. I’ll do a fuller write-up when I have more to report, but my initial impression is favourable. It’s more Diablo than WoW, with each character only having a handful of abilities and the quest system definitely reminds me more of an ARPG than WoW’s approach of “here’s half a dozen things to do in the same area”.
Anyway, here’s some screenshots to get you going. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments and I’ll try to find answers as I play,
