Everyone in Altera knowns Loffy as a scruffy beggar that isn't usually taken very seriously. But what few people know is that Loffy use to be the most feared pirate to set sail of the Seven Seas.

Before retiring from the pirate life, Loffy secretly stashed his precious loot. But the itch for adventure has resurfaced and now Loffy the Pirate wants to reclaim his lost booty. He has a hat, a cutlass, and a ship. All he needs is a crew.

There's something about Dragon Nest that sets it apart from Nexon's other major action-MMO title Vindictus. It certainly has the anime style charm to it and tons of humor behind many of its characters and quests. but I feel its easier to immerse myself into the game as a whole. The combat is fun and the while the classes are genderlocked you don't really mind that fact once you start playing. I will always come back to this game when I want my fill of hack and slash adventure!

Finding a random party can be kinda hard so it is recommended to play with friends. However with different starting points for every class trying to play as different classes with your friends can become an issue but you will find yourself back with your buddy in a while.
The classes are genderlocked so if you want to play as a archer or a magic caster you will have to play as a girl or if you want to play as the cleric or sword-wielder you will have to play as a guy. (Most people including myself don't see this as a huge issue but is worth mentioning.) Classes do have multiple paths depending on your playstyle.
So far the levels/dungeons feel easy even on the highest difficulty with little penalty for dieing. (however I haven't played in a while so I could be wrong or updates could have changed things.)
Despite these flaws the game is fun and is worth trying with your buddies ( It's free it's not as if you're going to lose anything besides sleep trying it out.)

Dragon Nest is a game where you combine Dragons and Nests.... Ok maybe not that, but it's still a great game. You can choose from a bunch of unique classes along with the recent class, I believe the Assassin... I definately recommend this game to anyone who likes rpgs.

It's an action rpg game with short instances that you can play with friends.

Pros:
- Different classes to choose from with each two different specializations
- Gear and loot
- Action combo based gameplay
- Graphics are correct

Cons:
- Buggy collision (sometimes you hit right on enemy and there is no effect
- Gameplay feels mechanic even though it is more actif than your average rpg game.
- Lots of quest about talking to a serie of npcs early in game without any explanation about how the game works, juste about some basic background story for some npcs. (could be a positive aspect for some people, I personally just wanted to play and try the gameplay before getting into the side story)
- Not a lot of explanation about how to regroup or join friends that aren't at the same starting point as you. (Comes when you can meet, but you have to play 3-4 instances before you can really join.

Simply not a game for me. It was over hyped by the community and compared to Vindictus in term of action. I can affirm there is no ressemblance. It is was more mechanical than its Nexon's related.

tldr: Not a bad game. But not the kind of game I will spend time in.

I did nto get far. At all. Between the cutesy art and giant boobs, or the rediculously basic tutorial, I can see that the game is not meant for me, a 30+ year old gamer who wants to be challanged and have skilled paly rewarded.

What thres me off the game: Extremely limited range, on "Ranged" characters. Also, (might be chagable, I did not attempt to fix) the camera aims your spells/attacks. Meanig you have to look at the badguy you want to hit. Not a bad thign right? Except it meant it I was constantly shooting at things feet because I did wanted to keepa good veiw of the game as well. But you effectively have to choose between aiming and seeing from a decent angle.

You start out weak I get that. I'm sure the game gets better. That's the nature of MMO's. For all I know 5 minutes further down the road it gets less bland, But the beginning skills for the 4 classes I tried, were rediculously boring and uninspired conpared to the very interesting skill videos showed off at character creation. And I don't want another "grind through the boring ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ in hopes of to getting to the good stuff" game. I have enough other games that are fun from the get go to choose from.

Not a bad game, but no pull to entice the player past the tutorial that teaches you how to push the spacebar. But it just gives no reason to play it over other games.

I have just played this game on multiple Characters....Now even though the game is good I want to steer all you new players away from this game until the Developers have fixed the bugs in the dungeon.....and you Devlopers know exactly which one I speak of.....The one that has not been touched since 2011 and everytime someone places a ticket on it you give a false sense of hope you WILL FIX IT IN THE FOLLING PATCH!!!! this has been going on since 2011....and I think it is high time someone does something about it instead of sitting on their hands......but to all that want to try this game.....forget it it is not worth it till it is properly fixed!

***Bug That Effect Main Story Line Progress***

I experience shortly down the main quest line (lvl 5 Hide and Seek) a bug in thedungeon Icewind Forest were in the second map two, some enemies (2) toward the end could not be hit and just stood there. This bug made progress to the third dungeon map impossible; because to get arcoss to the next map all enemies had to be killed. My review is subject to change once the issue is fix, and Players are able to progress through the main story line. I have tried exiting the dungeon multiple times and resting, yet that did not work.

Dragon Nest personal review (for the short play time experience):
---------------------------------------
Combat - 7/10 combat animation and skill useage.
Graphic - 6/10 Alright, but nothing amazing.
Story - (Unknown) only got eight (8) quest in before bug. Had video cut-scenes and text reading
MMO experience- 5/10 all dungeons have solo options, but also have group difficulty options.
Solo play - 10/10 (state above).

I Really don't know enough to rate such things as loot system or endgame experience do to the bug. It seems like a game worth playing if this bug was fixed, so play at your own risk of possibly experiencing a bug like this.
