Adventurers! Starting today, you can pick up brand new Dark Forest Lockboxes on your adventures in Neverwinter. These lockboxes can reward you with new treasures and items to better prepare you for the difficult battles in and around Neverwinter and the Feywild.
The Dark Forest Lockboxes also include new and improved versions of some of the items previously found in Feywild Lockboxes, and these items have been updated based on your feedback!
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 or Feywild Lockbox in the past, open up a Dark Forest Lockbox and see what rewards you can receive:
Owlbear – (Rank 3 Mount) As its name implies, the Owlbear is a cross between an owl and a bear. Only the bravest of trainers attempt taming these former predators of the Feywild. Increases movement speed by 110%.
Pseudodragon – These iconic companions are known to be playful as they are curious. In combat, Pseudodragons prefer to hide in the brush and strike at targets with their poisonous tails.
The Pseudodragon has initial points in Power, Critical Strike, and Armor Penetration, as well as three Offense Slots for Runestones, one neck slot, and two ring slots.
As a purple quality companion, the Pseudodragon has a Max Rank of 30, providing you with four skins from which to pick.
The Pseudodragon has three powers:
Melee, 2s cooldown
Deals physical damage
Two quick bites that deal damage to target foe.
Melee, 8s cooldown
Deals physical damage
Strike target foe with a poison barbed tail. Targets take initial damage and are poisoned for a short duration.
Poisoned enemies grant combat advantage and take more damage from Bite.
