The Surplus donation contest has ended, and swebs123 (also known as Ulvein in-game) is the winner! Thanks for everything you do for the guild, Swebs. Your code will be sent via PM here on WC. And be sure to invest in a USB keyboard or Chatpad for your Xbox One soon, because it feels like you don't have one.
Meanwhile, Zen is on sale for 15% off today! The sale possibly lasts throughout the weekend, but we're not sure yet. Now is a great time to buy some Zen and pick up whatever premium items (or VIP membership) you've been wanting. XP boosters and/or the outfit that boosts XP for all of your characters by 20% are great purchase ideas.
Everyone please keep working towards reaching level 60+ status, and donate all the level 60+ items you find to the guild coffer. We must build the farm before this Saturday evening's stream!!!

Great news - we finished construction of the Guild Stronghold Farm!
Our next objective is building the Marketplace. Once we do that, members will be able to spend the Guild Marks they earn from Coffer donations on exclusive gear. It will probably take us a few weeks to get there. The number one resource we'll need is Gems, so please be sure to donate every Level 3+ gem you get!
Once we finish the Marketplace, we'll upgrade the Guild Stronghold to level 2. That will increase our coffer size so that people can donate more. Plus it'll unlock new structures for us to build, such as the Quarry and Mine.
Keep leveling up so that you can reach 60-70 and make bigger contributions to the guild. We're glad to have you all on the team!

Would you guys say the $9 for one month of VIP is worth it? I've put a ton of hours without spending a cent. Seems like a worthy investment for a month of 1 lock box per day.
And while I'm asking questions, how does one convert raw black ice into black ice the currency? All it says is "the forge" but I don't seem to have any options when I'm there.

Is VIP worth it? I think that it is. I'm not at VIP 12 (was previously at VIP 6, but added 6 more months after the Double AD weekend) and find it really adds to my enjoyment of the game. Now you can spend $9 on it via purchasing Zen and the developers deserve to be rewarded for their work. Another way to do it is to earn astral diamonds by completing dungeons and skirmishes and then refine these raw astral diamonds. You can then use them to buy Zen in the Astral Diamond Exchange (via the Store menu in game). This way, you can build up the Zen and not spend your $s. If you knew all this, I apologize as some people don't have this info yet.
The lockbox key that you get each day with VIP with worth it all by itself. I've gotten 2 epic mounts from those lockboxes over the past few months. Do you get something great every time? No, but it adds a "what will I get today?" dimension to the game which I find is kind of neat.
Regarding the raw black ice, it needs to be refined via the "Black Ice Shaping" profession. You can access it from the normal professions option. I believe you only need level 1 to refine and the level 1 can be purchased from the Icewind Dale campaign window.

I did get the black ice profession. You have to get 10 reputation in Caer Konig (spelling?) by doing the Icewind Dale quests, and then that opens it up.

Interestingly enough I'm really enjoying my healer right now. Just got to level 33. But it's definitely not at the same level damage wise my Rogue. But like you said, nice to be able to help in a different way during Skirmishes and Dungeons.

The dark side of the recent Underside update is that it has made Coalescent Wards (used to upgrade some equipment to new rarity tiers) much more expensive. This has caused quite an outcry on the Neverwinter forums. I wrote an in-depth look at the issue - please check it out and be sure to comment on the article!

David (or anyone else), if you get stuck on a quest then feel free to ask for a guildmate to help out. My hunter ranger really struggled at times and it would have been nice to have a tank in the match to soak up the damage. That's one of the reasons to join a guild and something that most of us have experienced. Good to hear you are enjoying the game.

I made a DC just bcoz my GF needs the dc artifact. I must say its now 1 of my favorite characters to play. The only annoying thing i guess is that i have to change encounters and class feature everytime, if i wanted to do buffs support or heal type, but very powetful and fun.

I do have a rare level tank companion, but either one of two things typically occurs: high level enemies one hit the tank or they ignore the tank and head straight to me. There is the owl bear companion that would reduce my agro, but I didn't spend for that. So yes, there are some tactics that make that class feasible, but I found the other classes more fun. I think if they fixed the rooting nerf for PvE, then it would be pretty fun and would work well for ranged play. Because of these perceptions, HRs will often be vote-kicked from epic dungeons which is frustrating.
Right now I have a GWF, Oath Pally and the HR at lvl 70. I just tend to prefer playing the others.

In general, I think that your second and third characters end up being more fun because you know a little bit more about how the game works: point allocation and mechanics. That's probably why my HR is such a hot mess.

Next question. Now that I'm a VIP, I'm getting all these Epic dungeon keys, but can't really do anything with them because I can't seem to get my gear level to 2000. I'm stuck around 1930 and everything I have is 130 or 135. At this point, is it just a matter of plugging away until I can level up my artifact weapons and other artifacts for another 70 levels and trying to replace my level 130 stuff with 135? I've been plugging away at Sharandar and Dread Ring but don't seem to find stuff that really helps my gear level. I've found that Icewind Dale and Well of Dragons are too tough right now.

The next thing you can do is to get a shirt and pair of pants that are iLevel 145 or so. Get the gemmed ones because you can then add an enchantment to boost the gear score another 35 or so. That's usually enough to boost you 100-200 gear score. There are some double slotted rings out there as well. All of this gear is pretty pricey, so get that AD this weekend. Also, these can be created via level 25 professions, but require a unified element and a dragon egg to attempt to create. That's why people always want to get those dragon eggs as a reward.
My pally is around 2300 gear score and I'm running out of cheap ways to increase that. Then starts the real grind. That's cool with me as I just relax and enjoy playing the game.
