Dragon Nest

I got bored of MapleStory, waiting for a new update to appear in the test server.

A couple days ago I tried a new game that just went OBT(Open Beta).
This action RPG game is called Dragon Nest and when I heard of this game I thought it would be an OK game, but it’s actually a really good game.

Dragon Nest has been developed by Eyedentity Games and Nexon Korea & America has the publishing rights.

I know that there’s a beta going on in China and in Korea. English players are lucky since Nexon America will not release one but two great quality games.
Dragon Nest in 2011 and Mabinogi: Heroes (Nexon America has renamed this to Vindictus) later in 2010.

You have to use WSAD controls to move around, there is no click-and-point combat system.
Dragon Nest boasts the proprietary, fully optimized ”Eternity Engine” which provides artful, premium graphics with low system requirements.

Each game has disadvantages, so does this one. There is a daily fatigue bar (700) and a weekly fatigue bar (1000). It decreases per dungeon/stage you enter. Yes, if you want to fight monsters you will have to enter stages/dungeons.
Every stage has different modes: Easy, Normal, Hard, Master and Abyss. So far I only tried Master and it’s freakin’ hard.

Whenever you defeat a boss in a dungeon, the screen goes like slow motion, it is really awesome.

There is another disadvantage. There are gender-specific classes. Currently there are only four classes: Warrior (male), Archer (female), Sorceress (female) and Cleric (male).

I’m playing a Cleric and I think this class is very strong.
There is only first and second job, you can advance to second job at Lv. 15. So I think there will be a third and maybe a fourth job in the future.

At level 15 I can advance to a Paladin or a Priest. Well to be honest with you, I’m definitely going Priest!!
It has very amazing, flashy and strong skills.

Click HERE to check out the skills of each class

워리어 = Warrior
아처 = Archer
소서리스 = Sorceress
클레릭 = Cleric

Of course there is PvP, but I don’t know a lot about it because I’m still new to DN.

I’ve fallen in love with this game~
I don’t know when Tespia will get an update, but hopefully soon. Maybe this week ^-^;

    This is the game my friend’s been waitin for for maybe a year. Sounds like a dragonica-like game.

  2. Millus says:

    Go pally!

  3. Alessandro says:

    looks pretty cool except the clothes. those look a little……. weird

  4. tnextg says:

    i want to play it cuz im getting kinda bored of MS
    thats why i come to this site to see whats new and wont quit…..yet

  5. MistahChe says:

    Awesome!!! Really good quality too :D

  6. Jacky says:

    When this comes out I’m definitely making an acrobat. I’ve always wanted to shoot arrows while in the air. :D

  7. x3TheAran59 says:

    I don’t even know what it is talking . Haha but I saw those skill cleric is the most nice ^^ JYJY level

  8. Hanabira.Kage says:

    Ugh…unfortunately, Singaporeans are IP-blocked from Nexon America games. =.=

    I want to try it out…

    • Justin says:

      It’s made my Nexon Korea not America. You should be able to play considering you have a Nexon Account.

      • Hanabira.Kage says:

        There’s a server for Nexon Korea, and a server for Nexon America opening up soon. I have neither a Nexon Korea nor a Nexon America account. What made you think that I have one? o.O

    • Devin says:

      Wonder why, just like we are blocked from ASIA soft games.

  9. x3TheAran59 says:

    Malaysia got IP-Block ma? But I also don’t know the words are saying.

  10. Alilatias says:

    Heh, Hanabira and Aran, hopefully when Dragon Nest comes to Nexon America, you MSEAers won’t be IP blocked from Dragon Nest like what happened with GMS. Although this is assuming that AsiaSoft (or any other SEA MMO publishing company) stays far away from this game.

    I want to try out Dragon Nest too. Heard about it about half a year ago. Quite neat, although chances are it’s going to fry my crappy laptop. I already have enough problems trying to not DC from a Zakum run, chances are normal gameplay in Dragon Nest is going to be worse system preformance-wise for me.

    • Hanabira.Kage says:

      All Nexon America games are IP blocked for us SEA players…or at least, GMS and Mabinogi are. I haven’t checked the rest yet.

  11. Warphz says:

    Does anyone have a clue when this is coming to America/Europe?
    Want to try it out.
    Looks pretty cool. ;)
    Definetly worth a try-out.

  12. Fenix says:

    Lol 3d Dfo XD.
    I looks kinda cool but i have to try it myself to see if its really good or bad.

  13. Pelipro says:

    LOL. I’m in love with the game Wonder King more than Maple now. IT’S AMAZING YOU GUYS SHOULD TRY IT!

  14. WOA I WANTED TO SEE MORE INFO ON THIS GAME!
    Thank you for keeping me updated on this….last things I saw was 3 youtube videos

  15. Denis says:

    Sounds like Lunia… O_O
    I loved Lunia!

    • Hanabira.Kage says:

      I loved Lunia too. Pity they closed down the first server and let ijji open a new one. I had to start over (I had a level fifty something Eir)…ARGH. Not to mention it lags like hell for me. I kept dying over and over due purely to lag.

  16. Alilatias says:

    Looking at all of the classes… Of the two female classes, I definitely want to be an Archer.

    Problem now is, I wonder what branch I should take. Bow Master looks dull compared to Acrobat, but Acrobat strikes me as the type of class that is far more melee-oriented than ranged (and is more prone into getting crushed should a heavily-armored boss so much as look at them funny).

    Perhaps I’ll wait until the third job/stage is revealed, if there are future stages. It would be interesting if each 2nd stage branch ended up getting seperate branches of their own in the third stage [warning: made up class names ahead], like Bow Master splitting into Tempest Sniper and Spirit Ranger, and Acrobat splitting into Daredevil and Assassin, although I’m not expecting them to do something like this.

  17. x3TheAran59 says:

    Hope it come out in english I don’t understand the Main page also. SOB!

  18. Devin says:

    Wehre did you hear 2011? Clearly they said they had plans to release it in north america late spring 2010.

  19. Tony says:

    spadow dont get stuck to this game we still need those maple updates :)

  20. DestinyThief says:

    Spadow i have a question!!!

    i saw your blogs
    and i saw that: aran
    Dual Blade got their special hair styles for males and females ;)
    out of the Trailers/Banners of the classes.

    Is evan getting their special hair style too?
    http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/maplestory/images/1/14/File-Evan_intro_Korean.jpg
    cause the hair style of the evan boy from the banner is very cool :D

  21. Xing says:

    This game sounds alot like valkyrie sky which also has stamina(daily fatigue bar in this game) and requires stamina in order to enter the dungeons/stages

  22. darkan says:

    when u think guys this big pacht will come out???

  23. Alessandro says:

    Spadow i rly hope you dont get too sucked into this game cause as fun as it looks we cant even play it. plus we need you for MS. Since Evan comes out tomorrow some tips would be helpful.TY!

    • darkan says:

      i dont think evan will come out tomorrow.. there is a lot of events to end… i think evan will come out 27 or 28

  24. Alessandro says:

    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA my mom wont let me stay home and now all of you people that are r gonna get a way head start on your Evan!!!!! *SOBS*

  25. Alessandro says:

    ya it comes out tomorrow because theres a huge patch from 1am to 11 am. they’re usually only about 4 hours. this is 10 hours

  26. austin says:

    You arent the only one who has to stay home during spring break -_- other ppl get to start on Evan earlier than me.Update:I found out that the American release date of Dragon Nest is during either November/December 2010 =D >.< but still a long wait…

  27. austin says:

    w8.. wat?! Evan comes out tomorrow?!!!!!! I thought it’s gonna come out during spring break!Ah well,if its true i can make a new Evan=D.Sorry for u though Alessandro.*CRYING HAPPILY TO MYSELF*

  28. SlayerGhost says:

    austin :w8.. wat?! Evan comes out tomorrow?!!!!!! I thought it’s gonna come out during spring break!Ah well,if its true i can make a new Evan=D.Sorry for u though Alessandro.*CRYING HAPPILY TO MYSELF*

    People who say it’s coming out after the server check are idiots… Seriously, if Nexon was releasing it they wouldn’t try to surprise us…

  29. Alessandro says:

    oh and everyone, if it doesn’t come out today (11:00 am (atlantic)) then i’m rly sry. it just kinda makes sense since there is a 10 hour patch. But…… plz don’t kill me if i’m wrong! =(

  30. austin says:

    Im not an IDIOT!!! and spadow wat lvl r u now on ur cleric? i saw it was lvl 7 in the video i think.

  31. Alex says:

    hey spadow does open beta mean anyone can play?
    cause my korean friend wants to play but his computer’s slow so he cant download it until hes sure

  32. Alessandro says:

    OMG im gonna cry. sry austin. oh and slayerghost, dont be an ass hole. jeez it was just a guess…

  33. Spadow says:

    Please stop posting hurtful comments. Your comments will be removed.

  34. SlayerGhost says:

    Alessandro :OMG im gonna cry. sry austin. oh and slayerghost, dont be an ass hole. jeez it was just a guess…

    If it was just a guess why’d you wet your pants and start screaming about it like a rabid fangirl?

  35. Ghost says:

    Spadow’s comment section is a new home for Basilers xD
    I’m guessing nothing much is happening with KMST?

    • Alilatias says:

      Nothing. We’ve been expecting new stuff in KMST for about a week now. Something’s probably going to happen later today… I hope.

      *prepares to be let down for another week straight*

      • Ghost says:

        I remember there was going to be a major patch this month containing high level content mentioned in the interview in December. Perhaps when GMS gets the Evan, KMST will release the content.

  36. austin says:

    I’m bored. im tired of w8ing for Evzn cuz i want to play it now. -_-

  37. Vincent says:

    I hate how the game has a fatigue system. ._.

  38. FLEIA says:

    Nexon usually patch once on the 3rd week of every month

  39. Joel says:

  46. SwordStaker says:

  51. 路人甲 says:

    MapieStory是款好遊戲,你竟然不玩了??
    這就是你的最終選擇??
    放棄一款好遊戲?

  52. joeloveslego says:

    白癡喔!
    他說等楓之谷出新改版太久了,
    所以先完這個!

  53. Alessandro says:

    hey slayerghost. i said in an earlier comment that im sorry if i end up being wrong and that goes for this too. It’s an EDUCATED GUESS! and since you dont seem all that bright, an educated guess is a guess based on factual information. 23 TO 24 ARE JUST THE DAYS THAT MAKE THE MOST SENCE. again i aplogize if im incorrect AND for swearing at you earlier

  54. SlayerGhost says:

    You’re saying I don’t seem to bright? You’re more likely the most asinine inividual I have ever met…

  55. 路人甲 says:

    不好意思 會錯意了

  56. Secun says:

    Stop spamming Evan release date bull on non-related posts.
    When you give us concrete proof of a release date, THEN we’ll listen.

  57. Alessandro says:

    okay secun u want concrete proof? it comes out in march on a teusday or wednesday. not that many options left. happy now?

  58. austin says:

    Stop arguing geez.ur like a bunch of magpies no offense… oh yea,now im not so sure about the date i said about when Dragon Nest is released in NA it could be in the summer but my mind is kinda scrambled…

  59. austin says:
