Neverwinter is an action multiplayer roleplaying game set in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy setting of the Forgotten Realms. Neverwinter uses a very loose mofification of the D&D 4th Edition rule set, including character creation and combat resolution. However, the progression is geared more towards MMORPG standards, with the current level cap of 80 and HP reaching tens of thousands.
Players in Neverwinter choose from one of the fantasy races that populate the realm of Faerun, including Humans, Halflings, Half-orcs, Elves, Drow, Dwarves, and Dragonborn. Character classes in Neverwinter take the MMO roles of Tank, DPS, Controller, Healer, and Nuker represented by the variations to D&D classes. Choices include Guardian Fighter, Trickster Rogue, Devoted Cleric, and such. Later levels allow character classes to further expand to Paragon Paths, such as the Fighter Vanguard or the Fighter Dreadnaught.
Advancement is attained by accumulating experience points (XP). This can be done through slaying monsters and enemies, accomplishing quests and achievements and fulfilling requirements for events, campaigns, dungeon delves, and skirmishes.
