The largest expansion yet has launched, and the servers are up.

This is a good video to describe the different layers of the Undermountain!

We can post tips here in this thread.
-Certainly starting the Undermountain adventure (behind Sargent Knox) and getting the free gear with enchantments (to compare against your current gear) will be the best way to get started leveling from 70 to 80!

Let me know if you have other questions either in Neverwinter, or in STO, and I'll see you online.

I've been playing with my Alt to test things out before diving in with my main, and the new gear looks pretty sharp- (Stat wise it is the same 'good' gear you get when starting Barovia.)

(Actually, I wonder if Jarlaxle had a hand designing it because of that hat!)

Don't forget to make use of the Antiquities Scholar in Protector's Enclave (up by the rewards vendor) as she can exchange enchantments and runestones for you. [Though they will be bound to you, so take care.]

Thinking about that, I made sure that both of my characters had a full set of one of each of the Utility Enchantments (Tamora's Lucky Enchantment, Dragon's Horde Enchantment, and Quartermaster's Enchantment.)
Even Bound to me, I want to have the option to use them, and being able to trade a radiant, etc, to get them is great to complete the set for my Utility slots in my gear.

Also of note, I have a Fire and a Lightning Weapon Enchantment, and I am thinking that it would be good to trade one (fire probably) for a Vorpal Enchantment at the same level. Even bound to account, it would be great to have that.

Don't wait too long to think about it, I think she might only be here for a month for conversion before leaving Protector's Enclave, I'm not sure.

>Now that i reached lvl 80 and get the free undermountain gear,
>how i can work to get higher lvl gear?
>i heard about lvl 800 or 900 gear. can you give me some hints
>on how i can work on getting these gears?

Greetings, I had received a few questions about gear, and thought I would post it here so everyone could see it.

You can get the Undermountain Gear [item level ~644 I believe] at Level 70, which seems to be a copy of the Barovia Vistani gear you get starting the Barovia zone.

So, further gear information:

As you start moving through the Undermountain campaign, you will start getting green gear, then the Lost Sentinel set (green and iLvl 700) and eventually some blue gear (770) after Twisted Caverns, that have higher item levels then the Undermountain gear. (So, you will start replacing / upgrading your gear piece by piece.)

While I am only just finished with with Twisted Caverns, most of my gear has been replaced once or twice from the Undermountain quest line. In the next three zones, I am sure that will continue!

Artifact Weapons are more complicated.
Once you can start running Master Encounters, you have a chance of getting Alabaster weapons, which will be a really nice upgrade.
Also, you can get new seals by running the 'Lair of the Mad Mage' dungeon, and they have end game armor and weapon artifact sets. (Check the seal vendor in Yawning Portal.)

There is also rumors of the Watcher Set
But folks on the forums haven't figured out how it drops yet. ; )
Update now that I am in a lower level:

In the Wyllowwood layer of the Undermountain they are handing out the Gambler's set (Gambler's hide, Gambler's Gaiters, etc) are green items at item Level 735) as quest rewards.

I'm still making my way through Undermountain, but I saw a great description of what you can expect to do when you are done!

How do you start doing Master Expeditions?

By FolsgaardSE

Its the last thing in the Undermountain Campaign. Once you finish it you can do 3 ME's a day.

The flow of Undermountain end-game goes like this.

Finish the campaign, that unlocks Master Expedition dailies as well as a quest to unlock Resonance. Both quests are on the top back/left side of the Yawning Portal.

Once you do the resonance quest, basically when you're not doing your 3 daily ME's (Master Expeditions) you will do heroic encounters in any of the Undermountain zones. Kinda like demons in older zones.

Resonance drops into (believe money pouch?) doesnt really matter as you don't really touch them. Anyway, The resonance you can use to create crystals, these crystals are basically something you add to change the flow of how easy/hard the ME's are and the item/gear drops.

More detail: Know when you first go into even a leveling encounter there is a small cave room. To the right are small stairs leading to 3 stone slabs. IF you are the group leader of the ME, you can click on the first one. This will allow you to convert your resonance, into crystals.. Then you can click on each of the 3 stone slabs to add 1 to 3 crystals. Each crystal type does something different, like Chaos makes it really hard and the more crystals you add increases it.

Confused yet? Once you do it, its not so bad. If you did Barovia, think of resonance as a "card drop" and a crystal is the actual card you add to the "hunt". Stronger or higher cards made hunts give better drops. Same with crystals in Master Expeditions.

Personally I like to do 3 crystal ME's as you get a purple on almost every boss. But you only need 1 crystal to open the final chest. So people tend to form that kind of group to quickly grind their dailies.

BTW and this is a pet peeve of mine. Seems EVERYONE calls them "1 rune runs" or "how many runes do you want added" They are crystals! lol Runes are what you get from the final chest and they are called "runed etchings" these can be used to level artifact gear, but most people use them to buy keyless lootboxes from Zox. He's under the left stairs in Yawning Portal.

I love zox boxes :) they give gold and AD and a chance at a high level gear piece and vanity pets :) I'm up to 4 vanity pets from undermountain and even had a ilvl 1k headpeace that gives 2k power against bosses.
