Invocation is a game mechanic in Neverwinter where characters can call upon the gods for boons and gifts. This is available to all characters above level 11, regardless of class, race, or other aspects of the character.

Unlocking invocation编辑

Invocation becomes available at level 11, but the Invocation Counter, as a useful HUD indicator, only becomes visible after completing the Invoking the Gods quest offered by Aralynn the Pious, which Sergeant Knox will direct you to once you are level 14+.

Invocation mechanics编辑

Invocation can be used once every hour at a campfire or Portable Altar. The Invocation Counter will display the time remaining until Invocation becomes available if it isn't already.

Once the above conditions are met, an invocation ritual can be started by using the appropriate hotkey. Ctrl-I is default.

Results of Invocation编辑

Invocation can have the following results:

  • Unnoticed: "Though you mumble the proper invocation the Gods didn’t notice. Try harder next time." A small amount of XP is the only reward for this outcome.
  • Recognized: "The ritual is complete; the Gods are amused." This outcome awards a small amount of XP plus a small random stat boost.
  • Acknowledged: "The Gods have seen your hard work and wish you to aid you in your heroism." This outcome awards the same as "Recognized" plus a useful item, probably consumable, or stat bonus.
  • Honored: "Your devotion and bravery have impressed the Gods, who reward you greatly." This outcome awards the same as "Acknowledged" plus a more valuable icon.

Additionally, every day, an Ardent Coin and Celestial Coin will be awarded that can be spent to acquire items from the Vault of Piety. Like the Zen Market, the Vault of Piety is always available and can be accessed by a small button next to the Invocation Counter. Celestial Coins can be used to acquire more valuable items than those acquired by Ardent Coins, but Celestial Coins are revoked on missing a day of Invocation.

List of Buffs编辑

The following buffs can be a result of using Invocation. Those buffs last 15 minutes. How much they give depends on the character level. It is not possible to receive several of these bonuses simultaneously.
