I've been in enough betas to know I really don't want to be in any more REAL betas. If they're smart, Lifetimers will only get into the "Marketing beta," where its mostly ready to go. A REAL beta is an ugly affair, and they should limit THAT to players who will be useful in such.

Oh, WE have access now. . . but people outside the company don't yet. Sorry.

It is shaping up nicely though.

My cryptic would have addressed those issues and not put cheat party tricks in.
You must be mistaken.
There will be no multiclassing in Neverwinter, cause there is no multiclassing in 4th edition of D&D. Cryptic is just following the rules here, if you prefer edition 3.5 and want multiclassing play DDO instead.

It would be interesting to know what your take is on their environment art. From the promotional material they've released, it certainly seems to be a new direction from that of Champions and Star Trek Online (and you've worked/are working on both).

Personally, I like it. Its very detailed. But I'd wonder whether its only that way in commonly revisited areas and interiors.

Look at the videos for room construction and foundry customization.

I think it's fair to say two things based on what Cryptic has released:

1) Neverwinter is a CITY so every location is commonly revisited.

2) There is clearly an emphasis on detail in all areas.

I have yet to see any crazy travel powers or even sprint in any of the videos released.

Consider how much ground you cover in Champions with rocket boots and rainbow slides. Consider how much you cover in STO with sprint.

Now imagine your normal movement speed in STO was your sprint and people normally walked briskly. And that the entire gameworld was a realistically sized city.

Just based on what the videos show, I'd say this looks like a more detail intensive version of the kind of city scapes City of Villains had.

No keys have gone out to my knowledge, as we are still not in beta. When we go into beta, and start sending out keys, I'm sure you'll know.

thats odd because on the NW website there is the access beta button which requires a key...but if you say so then it must be true lol

Happy holidays , looking forward to NW
