PvP in Neverwinter describes any gameplay that involves Player vs Player content:


Instanced PvP[]

Domination, Gauntlgrym and Strongholds are PvP matches in closed instances that requires players to queue into them.

Inside closed instances:

  • Companions cannot be summoned
  • Players cannot get injured

In addition, inside Domination and Gauntlgrym, but not inside Strongholds:

All instanced matches awards Glory. Additionally, Gauntlgrym awards [Grym Coin]s and Strongholds awards [Banner of the Fallen] currency.


Leaving Domination before the match is over is penalized and forbids leaving player to use any queue for 30 minutes.

Domination match can be left without being penalized when there are 3 or fewer players left in a team.

Open World PvP[]

Open World PvP is a marked area introduced in Module 3: Curse of Icewind Dale and available in 2 Adventure Zones:

To enter any of these locations, players have to sign a contract with one of two factions in Caer-Konig:

  • Ten-Towns
  • Arcane Brotherhood

Contract determines a faction side in Open World PvP, remains upto 20 hours of being offline and can be broken after signed.

Characters who enter PvP area become flagged for PvP after crossing its magical barrier.

The border of the PvP area has a red transparent effect and triggers a warning when you approach.

Once a player becomes flagged, they can attack players from the opposite faction and can be attacked by them even outside of a PvP area.

Players can become unflagged by dying, changing location or entering a Campfire.

In opposition to the rules of Instanced PvP matches, Companions can be summoned in Open World PvP, Companion Active Bonuses are active and players killed in Open World PvP can become injured.

One per hour per instance, a Black Ice Domination match comes as a Heroic Encounter inside a PvP area.

Killing players flagged in Open World PvP area can award [Scrimshaw Trophy].
