Neverwinter – 30 January 2020 Patch Notes

Known Issues
The Barlgura Heroic Encounter in Avernus once again incorrectly prevents the Daily Random Trial reward from granting bonus Seals; in addition, the Barlgura Heroic Encounter itself will only grant Seals once per day. This will be addressed in a future build.
