Twisted magic whisks inhabitants of the Forgotten Realms to the halls of Undermountain below Mount Waterdeep, with promises of their deepest desires. As adventurers delve deeper into the dungeon, they will experience five new and distinct adventure zones, each with its own set of challenges and rewards. The influence of Halaster Blackcloak and his apprentices is felt throughout the Undermountain story and Campaign, culminating in an all-new Endgame Dungeon, Lair of the Mad Mage.
Through these new experiences, veteran players will grow their characters up to level 80 with the increased level cap, while new players will enjoy improved level-scaling for earlier zones. This update also brings class ability and balance overhauls, new rewards from encounters throughout Neverwinter, an all-new Expeditions system - where players can explore the ever-changing caverns of Undermountain - and much more.
