Neverwinter presented new class Developer... "Every hero can Play with the Devs!" The Devs said. By playing the class you can get an immersive Development experience and use a new visibility-based threat building mechanic! You can take a look at the Developer class' abilities below.
Juggling - Handle 3+ tasks simultaneously with ease.
Working as Intended - Master of Arcane lore and historical reasoning for past decisions.
Pest Control - When fighting vermin type beasts, Developers have increased Critical Strike and damage. However, if the Developer does not kill the vermin type beast with a Critical, there is a chance a new one will spawn in its place.
Burning the Midnight Oil - When fighting at night, stamina regens slower, but you have higher Critical Strike.
What Is Thy Bidding, My Master? - If Developers are not group leaders, they can only target their leader’s target.
Patchmaker - Developers have the Prestige class Patchmaker, which focuses on mending the Weave, so that all magic in this world works as it should.
All Eyes On You - The more damage and destruction done, the more taunt Developers get.
Paranoia - Every power used has an increased chance of drawing the attention of everyone around, forcing others to target the Developer.
Blinders: For 6 seconds, all damage received is ignored. At the end of this effect, if the Developer has ignored more than their maximum HP in damage, they receive the debuff Resonating Feedback, which deals the extra damage to all party members over 12 seconds.
Scrounge – Consumes whatever food can be found in the kitchen
