Neverwinter Avernus Launches Second Episode of ‘The Redeemed Citadel’

Cryptic Studios has added the second piece of episodic content to Neverwinter: Avernus and its special limited time campaign: The Redeemed Citadel. This new content features the next milestone of the server-wide collaboration to reconstruct the now redeemed Bleeding Citadel of Zariel in Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells. The content is available now on PC and will launch at a later date on Xbox One and PlayStation®4. In addition, the content of the initial episode is now available on Xbox One and PlayStation®4.

This new update continues the epic campaign of players aiding the powerful ruler of Avernus, Zariel, who is newly redeemed and free from Asmodeus’ bondage, as she seeks to redress the balance of her dark deeds and create a bastion of angelic strength in the Nine Hells.

Players need to work together to reach four major milestones and reforge the citadel adding new rooms and content as they rebuild 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.

New content added since the launch of the first episode includes:

  • New Chamber – The War Room
    • A new chamber in the citadel that offers challenging and deadly new quests and is filled with Zariel’s lieutenants
  • New Heroic Encounter – Devil Assault
    • A new Heroic Encounter where the infernal legions attempt to take back the Redeemed Citadel
  • The Scathing Light Artifact
    • A powerful leaderboard reward, the Scathing Light allows players to wield the power of a spell unique to Zariel
  • Normal Version of the Zariel Challenge Trial
    • Players can now challenge Zariel herself in a normal version of the Difficult Trial to test their mettle and help train for the Master Trial Zariel Challenge
      • The Trial will become available when the milestone for Episode 2 is completed
  • New Mythic Quality Mount Upgrades
    • Players will be able to upgrade their mounts from Common quality to Mythic quality
    • Upgrading a mount to mythic quality will improve the mount’s overall power and available insignia slots
  • New Hunt Marks to slay deadly devils and demons for rewards
  • Blessed Weapons available from the Zariel’s favor vendor

While rebuilding the citadel closer to its former glory, players can earn the following new awards:

  • Redeemed Citadel Teleport Scrolls

  • Tears of the Redeemed (used as a restoration reagent for Blessed Weapons)
  • Coffer of Astral Diamonds
