How to farm Neverwinter astral diamonds
There's an old saying that money makes the world go round. While some may argue the merits of such a statement, there is no denying the importance of currency. This is true for the virtual world of online games as it is for the real world. Adventurers need cold hard cash (or gold) to buy gear, potions, and a few tankards of ale down at the tavern.

How to use your Guild's Neverwinter Stronghold
Guilds have long been a central feature of mmorpg games. Guilds allow players to band together for social companionship as well as working towards a common goal, such as end-game raiding or PvP. While most online games have a guild function, far less offer some form of guild housing. Neverwinter takes guild housing to a whole new level in the form of Strongholds. Not only does a guild have a place to call their own in Neverwinter, they actually h...

Top five features we want added to DDO
Like quite a few gamers, I came to the virtual world of online games through tabletop role-playing games. It became increasingly hard to find a good group that could game regularly, so the thought of being able to instantly log into an mmo and begin having adventures with people from all over the world was too good to pass up.
