Cryptic’s Jared “NoWorries” Sears has posted a new blog post on the Neverwinter site to show off some nice changes coming with the Heart of Fire module. One of the most interesting is that non-legendary end chests will be able to be opened for free — meaning no key required! “Overall the key mechanic wasd frustrating, and needing to spend AD on keys for additional dungeon runs in a given day wasn’t a great experience,” Sears wrote.
We have updated our original article with a statement from Cryptic Studios about the exploit ban wave.

The post further indicated that “any character found using the exploit will be subject to possible actions taken against player accounts as per Terms of Service”.
When Heart of Fire launches, Neverwinter players will see a number of class balance updates.

Console Neverwinter players can now take off for the wilds of Barovia thanks to the arrival of the Ravenloft content expansion. PlayStation 4 and XBox One players can check out the “meaningful day-to-night” cycle, Ravenloft Manor, the Tarokka Card collection system and the new Castle Ravenloft end game dungeon.
The Neverwinter Facebook page has been updated with a new image, similar to a Tarot card, that shows a druid on it. Is it possible that the iconic Druid class could be coming to the game? Given the Ravenloft setting of the next content expansion, could it be something that we’ll see added after the June 26th release date?
