Build Up the Official Neverwinter Wiki, Win Awesome Prizes!

Neverwinter's open beta is in full swing, with players globally setting out on their journeys for glory, loot, and experience. The official Neverwinter Wiki is growing by the day as well, the player-driven knowledge base containing pages upon pages of information on the universe, its inhabitants, classes, gameplay, and more. 

But there's always room for improvement, right? That's why Curse and Perfect World Entertainment are stepping in with a cache of sweet prizes as incentives to add some much-requested information to the wiki -- your way.

All you need to do is make a good contribution to the wiki, and then follow the Neverwinter Gamepedia account on Twitter and tweet a link to the contribution; by doing so you'll be entered to win one of the following:

  • Logitech G510 Keyboard
  • Cyborg V5
  • Logitech G400 Mouse
  • Logitech G35 Headset
Four winners total will be selected. What kind of helpful articles and guides are we looking for? Below you'll find the content milestone list that'll unlock the prizes above:

  • 1 Full Dungeon Guide containing the different sections of the dungeon with boss guides
  • 1 Non-class-specific Character Progression Guide (New features that are added from 1 to 60, such as Paragon Feats, Paths, Tiers, and so on, explaining when each level of feats are unlocked and when you get feat points)
  • 1 Complete Profession Guide 
  • 1 Complete List of Mounts (each with its own page)
  • 1 Complete List of Companions
  • 1 Complete Guide to Custom Chat Channels, Emotes, and Voice Chat
  • 1 Complete Guide for Guilds (joining, creating, calendar, bank)

Complete these items as a community, and you just might nab something cool in the process.

A couple notes -- to ensure your contributions are counted, be sure to tweet a link to the 'diff' page of your entry. Find this by clicking 'Recent Changes', and where you see your edit listed click the link that says 'diff'. This is the correct URL to use (An example).

You could also click History, make sure your edit is selected, and click to compare the selected revisions. For your entry to count, edits should be a minimum of 30 characters.

Additionally, upload helpful images to the wiki to be randomly selected to win Guardian Packs! We'll be giving away three keys that you can redeem on the Neverwinter site.

Curse and Perfect World Entertainment will together select our five favorite images and run a poll on the Neverwinter site to vote for the best -- the winner receives a Hero Pack!

Are you pumped to start helping out the community yet? Get started over at the Neverwinter Wiki on Gamepedia, and the official Neverwinter site as well for additional information on the game. This contest ends June 4th at 11:59 PM PST. Full contest rules and eligibility can be found below:
