Now that Module 2: Shadowmantle is live in Neverwinter, be sure to head into the new adventure zone, the Dread Ring, to continue your fight against Valindra Shadowmantle and her undead army. Along the way, you'll loot new items through dungeon delves, quest rewards, and by completing tasks in the Dread Ring Campaign. Also, keep an eye out in your inventory because you may have looted the new Rusted Iron Lockbox!
Don't forget that each lockbox requires its own Enchanted Key before you can reveal what's inside. You can find Enchanted Keys in the Zen Market by pressing 'Y'.
If you haven't opened a Nightmare Lockbox, Feywild Lockbox, or Dark Forest Lockbox in the past, open up a Rusted Iron Lockbox and see what rewards you can receive:
Apparatus of Kwalish – (Rank 3 Mount) – No one knows who Kwalish was, or why he wanted to ride in a mechanical crab, but for those who can operate these marvelous constructs no other mount will do. Increases movement speed by 110%.
Rust Monster – Rust monsters are normally dangerous creatures that corrode metal on contact. This one was found quite young and trained by a kindly Underdark ranger who eventually got tired of replacing rusted swords.
The Rust Monster has initial points in Power, Critical Strike, and Armor Penetration, as well as one Offense Slot and two Defense Slots for Runestones, and three waist slots.
As a purple quality companion, the Rust Monster has a Max Rank of 30, providing you with four skins from which to pick.
The Rust Monster has three powers and one active bonus:
Active Bonus – On Damage Taken
25% chance to inflict a 5% damage debuff on attacker. Stacks up to 3 times.
13' range, 3s cooldown
Deals physical damage
Chomp down on target foe with teeth and mandibles to deal damage.
13' range, 8s cooldown
Deals physical damage
Grab out for target foe's equipment with antennae and spread corrosion. This attack deals damage and reduces the damage done by the target
The rusting caused by Corrosive Touch becomes rampant, spreading to the target's armor. Foes hit by Corrosive Touch also take 5 percent more damage.
Artifact Provisions Pack – Contains Refining Stones which are a key component used to upgrade Artifacts during the Refinement process. It may also include one Rare Artifact.
Jeweled Thayan Equipment Crate – Inside this jeweled case is an ancient item bearing the Legacy of Thay. Such items scale with the bearer as they advance in prowess. Contains one Epic Primary weapon, Secondary weapon, or Neck item.
Planar Idol – Visit Rhix near the Wondrous Bazaar Merchant outside the Market in Protector's Enclave to trade this item for an Astral Resonator. Use the Resontator to extract Astral Diamonds from Astral Rifts in Protector's Enclave.
Iron Strongbox of Enchantments – Enchantments can be used to enhance your items. You can combine Enchantments together to create a higher rank of Enchantment. Refining Stones aid in the process of upgrade your Enchantments. Could contain Epic and Rare Enchantments.
Leadership Special Pack – This special pack could contain one Epic Leadership Asset and one Epic Profession Resource.
Thayan Relic Fragment – Take these relics to Fadime Zatar in the Dread Ring. She is eager to preserve the history of Thay from the lich zulkirs and is willing to barter for relic fragments such as this.
Tarmalune Trade Bar Jackpot – You have a chance to gain a jackpot of Tarmalune Trade Bars. See the Tarmalune Trader near the Market in Protector's Enclave to trade for valuable goods.
