The Demogorgon is somewhat of a legendary creature to Dungeons & Dragons players. It even makes an appearance in the Netflix series Stranger Things. To Neverwinter players it should be memorable as well as it appeared as an Epic Trial in the Underdark module.
The Demogorgon fight used to be quite challenging but as players have become more powerful, the Demogorgon has become less of an obstacle, so Cryptic has reworked the whole encounter.
I’m gonna keep it a buck with you here and put it all out there. The Demogorgon trial just isn’t harvesting enough tears these days. We’ve got incredibly detailed reports that track salt levels, and Demogorgon just isn’t pulling its weight like it used to. I chalk it up to our player-base growing in skill and being just better than they were when Demogorgon first hit the scene.Rob “Cryptic-Ridi” Hrouda
