City-state of Neverwinter, the pearl of the northern lands of the planet Toril, has experienced more than one attack. One of the largest disasters in the last century – Witching sea and volcanic eruption. City badly battered and we need to help him to regain his former greatness.
After the announcement of Neverwinter many immediately grabbed their pitchforks and torches, indignant that resettle in online canonicity series Neverwinter Nights – sacrilege. Resentment generally groundless: do these “Neverwinter” – only setting. New Adventures on Toril are completely different rules – so just players here have never lived.
Torilskie heroes of our time do not differ from their counterparts from other online worlds. They just roll up in coffins monsters, perform a variety of assignments, struggling with the wicked – and all this for the sake of the traditional goals: to have cherished experience points at the same time another pribarahlitsya slaughter Bow of Power. Roleplaying roleplaying and related gadgets are not a burden, although at first glimmering hope for something like this: when creating a character we are allowed to choose his homeland, the background and the patron deity. But later it turns out that all this talk of little – except that amuse themselves.
The plot is not rich in revelation – but who in the MMO-games in general looks at the story? Those who wish to dive in deeper, available for studying mass supplementary text. In some quests enough sustained intrigue. For example, an evil magician in the guise of a good-natured healer takes to his treatment of a sick woman, hoping to use it to gain power over the witching pestilence. However, we have strongly hinted baser motives magician, but things are moving so fast that when all turns out, there is no surprise. However, such tasks a little bit – and in many respects it is a merit in-game script editor. With the help of craftsmen began constructing such an adventure that sometimes even surpassed the basic plot. Just frustrating that the editor does not allow extensive invent history. For example, in the module of the village, cursed witch and asks a moral choice: to understand and forgive the witch or kill her? Or, well, his heroism, and flop on the side of evil? ..
According to the combat system and game simultaneously recalls the classic MMO, and slasher. Melee weapons are allowed to beat wherever the cursor, but ranged attacks except skills of mass destruction, are recorded on the victim, as in World of Warcraft, – Bow by enemy we do not allow. Skill system rethought very well, freeing the player from having to stuff all over the screen and turn the myriad panels bulky lists skills. Do you have one handy panel on which you can attach eight abilities that, contrary to fears, did not limit the choice of strategy.
Similar facilities in Neverwinter very much. For example, the location is very ergonomically arranged: you’ll never miss an important character, the quest center and especially not razminetes with a friend.
Fear of death will not follow the player on his heels – with ordinary monsters can handle without problems, and against most bosses running the same ingenuous tactics. Hastily on the lam from the red zone, meaning that there is now arrive “present” and smartly straightened with minions – or tolerate their attacks if they do not bother much.
Extremely convenient implemented craft occupations. If there are ingredients you can start crafting background, and most do what your heart desires. Even go on a visit to the bosses, though run and perform quests, though generally turn off the game – the process in any case will not be interrupted.
Faerûn downright protect its heroes, and play as a result very easily. Neverwinter – the perfect choice for those who want to join the world of MMO, but for veterans of the genre with many years of game may seem too simple. However, nothing prevents a peek at Toril a half-year – you see, and there will a tough test.
