UPDATE: Looking for a great guide to help you in Neverwinter? Check out the Neverwinter Handbook written by the veterans of KillerGuides. I’ve used this guide before and it’s one of the best guides available covering leveling, crafting and currency information about the game. This guide will not disappoint! 😀
Next up is Seals. There are 4 types of Seals to make this just a little bit more complicated. There is the Seal of the Lion, the Seal of the Manticore, the Seal of the Unicorn, and Seal of the Dragon. These are obtained from dungeon bosses and group bosses, as well as from events. As I mentioned earlier, you can buy Seals from the bounty hunters or with your Ardent Coins. You can use them for appropriate-level blue equipment. Let’s say you do a level 30 dungeon. Let’s say it drops the Seal of the Lion, you can turn those Lion Seals in for roughly level 30 blue equipment.
The last is Trade Bars. As far as my research told me, there is nothing that Trade Bars are used for right now, or at least there is no way to get them. There’s speculation that it’s going to be something to do with the in-game. However, I have no solid information on Trade Bars as of right now.
That’s all of them; that’s all the different types of currencies. You probably now understand why I thought a video covering the various currencies would be helpful, because quite frankly, it’s confusing. To be totally honest with you, I think there is way too many currencies in the game. It’s just overwhelming to a new player to hop into a game and you see all these different vendors, they all require different kinds of currencies to buy their items. At least you asking, “Where do I get this currency from? Now I’ve got the currency, what can I use it for?” They do a pretty good job with the spending, because as you can see, the Ardent Coins and the Celestial Coins, you can actually just buy straight from your inventory. Same goes for the Zen; you can actually see here the various things you can buy with a Zen. You don’t have to run around and find a vendor that does it. That does help a little bit, but to be honest, I think it’s just too confusing for new users. I understand what they were going for, but I think they probably should look at dropping it to Gold, Glory for the PVP, Astral Diamonds, and Zen. 4 is still a decent amount, but still flexible.
