Never Say NeveRanger Again
Free to play action MMO Neverwinter has been updated with a whole lot of sweet sounding stuff in its latest module release. The new module is called Shadowmantle and includes the new Ranger class to play with, and a new end game area that you can travel to for the purposes of thumping baddies. Here's the full list from the Neverwinter site:
Hunter Ranger playable class: This new class is deadly from afar and has incredible damage capabilities up close as well. Log in and play as one now!
Hunter Ranger Booster Pack: This pack is now available for purchase in the Zen Market. Get a head start on your new Hunter Ranger!
