[Preview] Neverwinter: Delving Into The Cloak Tower

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 23,001MMORPG.COM Staff Epic

Continuing our Neverwinter theme, we managed to get a guided tour of one of the game's multiplayer dungeons, The Cloak Tower. Packed with mini-bosses and a bad ass at the end, read all about our adventures in dungeoneering.

No Dungeons and Dragons game is complete without a good “dungeon delve”, and Cryptic’s Neverwinter promises to have a whole host of 5-man dungeon content to make sure the game has that D&D group-focused experience. Don’t get me wrong, there is also plenty of solo-able content in the game as well, but Neverwinter’s bread and butter group content will be in its dungeon delves, and we yesterday we got to sit in with Cryptic’s own Zeke Sparks and Scott Hawkes from ZAM to partake in one of the five-man dungeon experiences: The Cloak Tower. If this level 16 dungeon is a sign of things to come, group-loving MMORPG fans are in for a treat, as Cloak Tower sets the stage for a great batch of party-based content in the game.

    NICE!  Watched the replay of the Stream last night after work, way more excited for the game then I thought I ever would be.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    This actually looks awesome. I like how epic, powerful and impactiful that boss Vansi whatever felt just from watching it. He was knocking them all around like crazy.

    I like.

    The dungeons look fun, this game wasn't on my radar but I'll check it out closer. Healing in dungeons is one of few things I enjoy in themepark MMO's these days since no non-MMO I know has anything similar. Very few MMO's have done small scale dungeons well though, infact noone has come close to WoW in that aspect yet imo.

    Nice to see Bill acknowledge in the video and here that playing rolls in  a group is a fun mechanic.

    Obviously the fun mechanic leads to the possible downfall of "Healer wanted for XXX... Tank needed for YYY".  I wonder if Cryptics intent in only releasing three of the five launch classes here is actually to build a player base for Guardian Fighters and Clerics.  In theory the control wizard is actually the third part of the Holy Trinity, but I didn't see the wizard doing a lot of controlling.
