The Storm King’s Thunder campaign is a huge high level campaign. It adds a huge amount of content to the game in the form of four new adventure zones, new equipment, mounts, and more!
Storm King’s Thunder calls heroes to Icewind Dale to solve a deadly mystery and recover an ancient artifact of immense power: the famed ring of winter.
The ring has been seized by the fierce frost giant Jarl Storvald, who is attempting to control its powers and use it to freeze the oceans, blanketing the world with snow and ice. Orcs, goblins, barbarians, trolls, and other monsters are gathering in the north, ready to pledge fealty to Jarl Storvald should he succeed. This of course is causing havoc in the northern settlements of Ten-Towns.
Players must be level 70 to start the Storm King’s Thunder campaign. Once leveled, talk to Sargeant Knox in Protector’s Enclave and complete the quest “Festival of Bryn Shander.” This quest will get you headed in towards Bryn Shander and give clues as to what is happening in this campaign. Follow the quest line. Once you complete all off the normal quests you will be able to
start doing the Daily and Weekly repeatable quests in Bryn Shander.
This is the core system players will use to progress through Storm King’s Thunder campaign. It is the currency of the campaign and will be used to advance your campaign goals, upgrade the new set of armor, and empower the armor from this campaign.
Players will need to collect Voninblod with Ostorian Relics. They can also get Voninblod through encounters and each of the quests gives you a little. But to really cash in on the Voninblod players will need to find, collect, and turn in piles of Ostorian Relics.
There are a lot of new items in this expansion for Neverwinter.
Many of these are in place to help combat Everfrost Damage, a new and additional damage players will take whenever they are in any of the new adventure areas. Whenever players are damaged in the new areas, they will also take Everfrost Damage. So, if they take 2000 points normal damage they will also take 2000 points in Everfrost Damage. To combat this, the new gear as well as some potions and other items allow players to resist this damage.
Most of the new items come with some level of protection. So it is a good idea to get them ASAP.
The first and easiest bit of new gear comes as Forstborn equipment. Players can buy this new gear from the Tarmalune Trade Bar Vendor. To gain Tarmalune Trade Bars, open up Enchanted Lockboxes. This is a great way to get a leg up in Storm King’s Thunder.
This Frostborn gear is definitely the fastest way to get Everfrost resist up. Players will need a 28% resistance to get into the new Skirmish, Fangbreaker Island.
There is alot to gather on the gear. See you weapon section on how to progress on these
The first order of business is to get the quest Festival of Bryn Shander from Sergeant Knox. This will start you on the journey heading to Bryn Shander and the events surrounding Storm King’s Thunder.
It’s important to know that this is one of the toughest area of the game. You may struggle with it more than a little to begin with. A high gear score and boons are desired to survive in these unforgiving areas. A gear score of at least 2500 and half the boons in the game is a rough guess on who should and shouldn’t be here. Don’t be one of those players begging for help for the little stuff. If you can’t handle it come back later after you have geared up some and have a few more boons to keep you fighting.
The campaign will lead you through four area's. Each area will be unlocked when you reach a task in the campaign or complete the quest line.
