After banding together throughout the previous milestones to restore power to the once Bleeding Citadel, it has finally been fully restored and its Forge rekindled, enabling Zariel’s allies to strengthen their armor and their resolve. This foothold in Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells, now serves as a beacon for Aasimar avengers everywhere.

About The Redeemed Citadel

To access The Redeemed Citadel, a level 80 character and the completion of the Avernus campaign and Mote of Virtue storyline is required. For Redeemed Citadel progression, Neverwinter players had to work together to reach four major milestones and reforge the citadel. Players contributed to the reconstruction of the bastion of angelic strength by assisting Zariel with slaying fiends, completing Heroic Encounters in Avernus, completing Holy Register of the Deputation Quests and by doing Weekly Challenges. Weekly Challenges had players slaying demons, locating treasure, or traveling to past dungeons in an effort to gain Zariel’s Favor, a currency that can be exchanged for various goods.
When one of The Redeemed Citadel’s milestones was completed by the server early, there was some time before the next milestone began. During that time, players could continue to earn and spend Zariel’s favor, as well as work towards personal goals. Once the next milestone began, the previous milestone ended and no more personal progress could be earned unless players purchased the Reforger’s Blessing for that milestone.
