Earlier this year, Neverwinter introduced episodic content as a way to both bridge and progress storyline. Rage of Bel guided players from defending the citizens of the cursed Vallenhas Stronghold to facing one of Zariel’s lieutenants. The launch of the Avernus module witnessed the struggle and redemption Zariel herself. The Redeemed Citadel continues the story, working with Zariel to transform the Bleeding Citadel once again into the angelic fortress it once was.

Milestones & Rewards

This content requires character level 80 and the completion of the Avernus campaign and Mote of Virtue storyline. The Redeemed Citadel content is broken into 4 different episodes or milestones, each one building upon each other, and relies on shared server-wide effort to reconstruct the Citadel. Players contribute to the reconstruction by assisting Zariel: slaying fiends and completing Heroic Encounters in Avernus, by completing Holy Register of the Deputation Quests, and by doing the Weekly Challenges. Weekly Challenges have players slaying demons, locating treasure, or traveling to past dungeons in an effort to gain Zariel’s Favor, a currency that can be exchanged for various goods. Each week will bring with it new tasks, so make sure to check back to earn bonus Favors!

The server-wide completion of the first milestone paves the way to the next episode. It’s important to note that a server cannot work towards the next milestone if it is before the launch and earliest possible date of Episode 2. The server wide completion will also unlock new rewards as well as revealing new areas of the Citadel. This includes the location of the Hunt Masters, where players will be able to use the trophies included in the new Avernus Hunt Key Bundle!

Players also have personal milestones to accomplish, with various rewards along the way including:

Milestone I

  • Redeemed Citadel Teleport Scrolls
  • Class Specific Blessed Artifact Equipment
  • Coffer of Astral Diamonds

Milestone II

  • Redeemed Citadel Teleport Scrolls

For those with a more competitive side, a server leaderboard tracks each player’s contribution, with the top 100 participants earning a Divine Vorpal Enchantment. This enchantment shares the abilities of the original vorpal, but has a unique visual effect exclusive to the Divine version and separate from the Holy Vorpal enchantment which is available for purchase once the first milestone is completed. Each milestone has its own leaderboard and top participation reward.

The Redeemed Citadel introduces a brand new race – the aasimar! Aasimar are born to serve as champions of the gods and bear within their souls the light of the heavens. This race is available upon completion of the fourth and final milestone for those that purchase all Reforger’s Blessings and collect all premium rewards.
