The Dark Avenger Arrives

A Fire in the Darkness
The Avenger is a twisted version of the regular Warrior character class. The son of a famous warrior and Dragon Cultist, the Avenger is obsessed with gaining great power in order to prove his worthiness to his father. In his mad desire for power, he turned to the darkness and it has enveloped him. Slowly, the darkness consumes his mind and body, even while he has attained the great power which he sought. The Avenger must face his own shadow, an evil twin created from his nightmares. Only by defeating him, can the Avenger unlock the specialization of Dark Avenger, a true master of the darkness.

The Dark Avenger is the first Hero class to come to Altera. If you have an existing Level 80 character, you can create a Level 60 Avenger class character. Otherwise, your Avenger class character will start at Level 1. The Avenger becomes a Dark Avenger at Level 50 and can reach the Level 80 cap.

Fiery Skills
The Dark Avenger’s specialty is creating deadly combo attacks by using his fire blades. He relies mostly on Strength and Agility, and his medium- and long-range attacks deal significant damage to enemies while keeping him out of most enemy range. With the addition of high movement speed, the Dark Avenger can easily slip into position, deal maximum damage, and get out before the enemy knows what hit them.

By using his skills as an Avenger against enemy monsters, he generates and stores up “Fury”. Once this resource is full, he can utilize it to transform into a full-power Dark Avenger. In this state, all skill cooldowns are halved and his main skills are enhanced. However, the transformation only lasts as long as there is “Fury”. Once this resource runs dry, the Avenger must continue to attack enemies to gain more.

About This Game

Dragon Nest is an online action role-playing game that combines the blazingly fast combat and visually stunning attacks of a console game with the epic story and role-playing elements of classic MMORPGs. What makes Dragon Nest unique among action RPGs is the third-person, over-the-shoulder perspective. This provides both a unique combat “feel” reminiscent of first-person shooters and lets players enjoy the graceful and ferociously vicious combat moves of the characters.

Key Features


Lightning Fast Combat:
Unlike any other role-playing game, Dragon Nest features a refreshingly fast-paced, non-targeting, twitch-based combat system where the action never lets up. Be light on your feet and string together devastating combos as hordes upon hordes of enemies surround you, or when facing off against other players online in intense PvP skirmishes.

Epic Boss Battles:
Each of Dragon Nest's various dungeons has a massive monster guarding its prize. Minotaurs, dragons, demons, trolls - these are just some of the horrors you'll face. Special dungeons called NESTS act as multi-stage lairs for some of the most intense and challenging boss battles, but the harder the fight, the greater the rewards.

Choose Your Hero:
Dragon Nest features seven robust character classes to choose from, each with their own distinct strengths and abilities. Whether you're a ranged fighter, a close combat brawler, or a skilled mage, Dragon Nest has you covered.

DO NOT GIVE MONEY TO THIS GAME THROUGH STEAM. IF YOU DECIDE TO GIVE MONEY TO THIS COMPANY (and I wouldnt advise it.) ONLY USE PREPAID CARDS.

The reason for this is if you pay anyway other than prepaid you will get NX credit instead of NX prepaid. Why does it matter? Because you cant buy anything with NX credit (well nothing you would ever want to buy at least). No you will not get a refund and no there is no way to transfer the NX you bought into a useable form.

Please either upvote this review or put an advisory about this in your own review so that people are aware of this when decideing if and how they want to spend money on this game.

Thanks

Overall a very fun game. However playing solo can be quite boring sometimes so it's best if you get someone to join with you.

As with all games there are pros and cons, the most annoying cons I have found are the gender locked classes, and that certain cash items have to be bought with NX Prepaid (using cards etc.) not with NX Credit (using your credit/debit card and steam cash). Other than that the game is quite enjoyable, and isn't entirely a p2w game like most so called f2p games are.

As for PVP, pretty much anyone stands a chance at being good no matter what character they have, it all comes down to skill. Though according to various forums some classes are better than others, but I disagree as I have watched so called OP classes get absolutely destroyed by the so called lower PVP classes.

The quests and levelling system can be quite grindy and repetitive at times, but if you're with a friend you dont really mind quite as much since you clear the dungeons quite quickly, most of the time in under 5mins.

I highly recommend this game for anyone to try. I was quite sceptical to begin with but have quickly become addicted to playing.
