Zen is a in-game currency used in Perfect World games, including Neverwinter. Note that not all Zen may necessarily be used in Neverwinter; Zen acquired through certain means, such as that granted from subscriptions of other games, are tied to a specific game.
 Acquiring Zen
It can be acquired through the following means:
- Zen can be purchased using real-world money through the Perfect World official site on this page.
- Zen is currently priced at a rate of US$1 / ~€0.9 for 100 . It can be purchased in batches of 500; 1,000; 2,000; 3,000; 5,000; 10,000 and 20,000.
- Zen can be acquired without a purchase by visiting offers.perfectworld.com.
- Zen can also be purchased from other players through the Astral Diamond Exchange using Astral Diamonds.
 Spending Zen
The Zen Market is always available through the HUD. Typically, items purchased from the Zen Market can be claimed at any time, regardless of a character's current location. Unlike other in-game currencies, Zen can also be used to purchase certain features and services for a player's account.
