Skirmish

From Neverwinter Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Skirmishes are player-vs-environment private instances that (so far) take place in outdoor environments and which are balanced for groups of five characters. They are similar to Dungeon Delves, but usually shorter and often involve staying in a fixed area while defeating multiple waves of foes.

Skirmishes awards an achievement which can be earned during normal leveling, or during the "Call to Arms" event. A Call to Arms is the only means to earn those achievements for a character that has exceeded the max level for each indicated in the table below.

Call to Arms Skirmish

A Call to Arms is an enhanced, limited time version of a normal Skirmish that permits levels 40-80 to queue for it. These events have enhanced drop tables with special items like companions, mounts, vanity Pets, dyes, enchantments, and special themed transmutes. Each character is scaled to level 40 for the skirmish. All of these skirmishes use a currency known as Medallion of Battle Medallion of Battle at their merchants within Protector's Enclave while the event is active.
