Patron markers

Remember how these were uncovered by data-mining but there was no info released referencing them? There's a Reddit topic going into the effects.

I think we're caught in a little misunderstanding here. There seems to be campaign improvements that have nothing to do with the so called "Patron Markers" we found in the game files.

Could be. Reddit users also noted additional Caer Konig and Bryn Shander Reputation on quests that specifically reference "the influence of your patron".

I am betting we're seeing something that wasn't meant for release at this time.

Latest preview patch:

"Players no longer incorrectly gain extra reputation from certain campaign quests."

Still mostly left unsaid but... slated for next module. 12b or 13? It's presumably a good fit for a QoL-focused B module, so possibly debuting very soon.

It occurs to me that even if you're done your campaigns, depending on what currencies are meant to be affected with the entire system functioning, it could help with filling stronghold coffers as well. It doesn't really make sense to try to accelerate progress by boosting the gain of some currencies but not others, because mostly all that does is move the chokepoints around.

If it's a Zen purchase as some of the datamining indicates, I'd have to assume you're buying into an account flag that would affect every alt you make.

Yeah, that's what is kind of naive. Not much gets by us.

This sort of thing already exists in STO: For a chunk of campaign currency, any character that has finished a campaign may purchase a Patron token (account-bound). You pass it off to your alt, they redeem it, and from then on, all their campaign progress is doubled.

For Neverwinter, it's likely to be similar? In STO, it only affects "campaign XP", which is the equivalent of Bryn Shander Rep - the stuff you earn daily but don't "spend" per se. At a guess, the way it would work for, like, Underdark and Dread Ring and stuff would be to give you two day's progress for the price of one.
