Have you traveled to Helm's Hold in Neverwinter? If not, be prepared to encounter some of the most fiendish and evil creatures in Forgotten Realms. To satiate your hunger for taking down the most vile creatures in game, we're introducing a new Call to Arms Skirmish Event for Straight to Helm, Helm's Hold's skirmish. You can learn more about the Call to Arms system in our previous blog.
Event begins: October 3, 2013 at 10 A.M. PDT (Pacific) (When is that for you?)
Event ends: October 7, 2013 at 10 A.M. PDT (Pacific) (When is that for you?)
Answer the Call to Arms in Helm's Hold
Starting at 10 A.M. today until October 7, 2013, players from level 6-60 will be able to queue for Call to Arms at any time during the event period. Taking down devils and the Ashmadai has never been more exciting or rewarding! Speaking of rewards, what could you earn by completing a Call to Arms skirmish? In addition to dye packs, gold, Rough Astral Diamonds (during the bonus Astral Diamonds event for skirmishes), and equipment drops from slain creatures (specific to your character level!), players could receive the following items:
New companion – Helmite Ghost Paladin
In life, the Paladins of Helm swore oaths to the guardian god to protect the world from evil. These vigilant spirits remain true to their vows in death, serving Neverwinter's heroes in battle.
The Helmite Ghost Paladin at level 30
The Helmite Ghost Paladin Companion has initial points in Defense and Regeneration, as well as two Offense slots and one Defense slot for Runestones, one waist slot, and two ring slots.
As a green quality companion, the Helmite Ghost Paladin Companion has a Max Rank of 20, providing you with three skins from which to pick before ranking up.
The Helmite Ghost Paladin Companion has three powers:
Melee, 3' Cylinder, 8s cooldown
Deals physical damage
Deal damage to target foe.
13' range, 120' Cone, 3s cooldown
Deals physical damage
Strike all foes in a forward arc.
This power unlocks at companion level 30.
Shield Bash applies a Helmite Seal to the target for 5 seconds. Attacking a target afflicted with a Helmite Seal heals the attacker.
New enchant – Cruel Enchantment
Players will receive one rank Rank 2 up to Rank 5 Cruel Enchantment during every Call to Arms skirmish completion! In addition, Rank 1 and Rank 2 Cruel Enchantments may drop from creatures while running the skirmish.
