Neverwinter Goes To The Dark Side With New Drow Lore
Neverwinter, one of the most anticipated MMO’s of next year, released another lore diary focusing on playable races. This one focuses on the dark elves of the underworld, the Drow. Though they are creatures born of dark magic, a few make their way to the surface to redeem themselves as heroes in service of the city of Neverwinter. And probably for the sweet gear upgrades, too.
Drow’s receive two racial abilities in the game. Regardless of class, all Drow can draw upon dark magic to debuff their attacker’s Defense. And due to their lack of need for sleep, they can recover faster at campfires. Sounds nifty while soloing, but in groups, you’ll probably have to wait around for your non-Drow buddies to recover more slowly. Finally, due to D&D mathemagics, all Drow will get +2 to Dexterity, Charisma, and emo haircuts.
Based on the Dungeons & Dragon’s Forgotten Realms Campaign, Neverwinter has been decimated and adventures must help rebuild it while battling the magical creatures roaming freely along the Sword Coast. Couldn’t hurt to have a little reformed evil by your side, eh?
