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.

About the 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.

Intuitive and Engaging Game Play:

Player vs. Player (PvP):
Engage in fierce player vs. player combat across many different modes and maps.

If you're looking for a really fast action MMO, then this is the game for you. It starts off a bit slow but once you select your first class specialization(ie. Warrior-->Barbarian, Mage-->Fire Mage) the game becomes much more intense. The combat is easily the highlight of this game; the feeling of decimating a battlefield with 30 enemies on screen with a giant AoE attack is great! I only feel the character customization is lacking... Options for hair and faces feel limited and classes are gender-locked, so if you want to play as a male Archer, you're outta luck. Overall it's a pretty solid MMO with plenty of dungeons to try your hand at.

Dragon Nest is an instance-based action RPG playing much like an arcade game with no targeting, a strict class tree, a less strict skill tree, and more or less no character customization whatsoever. For instance, all Tinkerers are time-travelers who somehow turned into adorable lolitas, and all Kalis are abundantly female spirit dancers with sweet, slightly shy temperaments and dead masters.

Masters in their tribal ninja teachings, not BDSM masters. Moving along.

Dragon Nest's English localization is -incredibly- well-done, with dialogue that is not only legible but actually full of character and humor. The voice acting is goofy, but in a way that lines up with the character in question. The child king is nasally and distinctly lacking a courtly presence, while the storage NPC constantly complains about the horrible things other people / you leave in storage. The marketplace NPC will insult you for being poor (regardless of how much money you are holding because he's so damn rich.)

Dungeons have multiple difficulty settings, and the baddest ♥♥♥ dungeons are the titular Nests (though not necessarily dragon nests.) Abyss is the fourth and highest difficulty of any other dungeon, but it is the first difficulty of a Nest, and most of them have a Hell or Hardcore one that's much much harder than that. Nests are effectively your chokepoints for progress through the game, and at any given time one or more Nests will be the "endgame" dungeon. The catch is, you can only /win/ one given Nest a limited number of times every week. You can fail as many times as you want, but the great majority of items from Nests are only acquired after a successful clear.

Sadly, despite its charms, some significant flaws mar Dragon Nest and detract largely from its otherwise polished gameplay:
- As said before, character customization barely exists and development is largely one-way-only - there isn't as freeform choice in character build as there would be in a standard MMO like WoW or Everquest II. It's basically an online arcade game.
- It is possible to miss content. This is usually something trivial such as a non-title achievement, but it will still drive completionists up the wall.
- The game is entirely instance dungeon-based with little to no open world. The exploration fields don't have any combat in them, nor any content other than NPC's to talk to and gates into instance dungeons (similarly to Sonic Adventure.) This can make the game feel very railroaded and monotonous.
- Costume items, which are largely cash-only and non-tradeable, also give you stats and perks. This means they're not costumes. They're cash-only equipment.
- Titles also give you stats, but the majority of those are acquired ordinarily ingame and you may use a display title different from your stat title.
- As with most if not all other free games that have equipment upgrades available, Dragon Nest's equipment upgrade rate is abysmal without paying cash to improve it and/or protect items from destruction. These items thankfully can be traded, but as cash items they will cost a small fortune.
- Holiday events, and events in general, almost never give anything permanent and unique. They give consumables and temporary costumes at best, or items that can be obtained in normal gameplay. They're generally quite underwhelming and unrewarding.
- The keyboard control scheme is VERY awkward and can't be remapped.
- If you like endowed girls at all you won't be able to play as Kali, because she's constant softcore pornography on the screen and very distracting. She's the only character with jiggle (Archer / Sorceress / Tinkerer are all B-cup or less whereas she's at least a D-cup with a huge butt) and her dance animations border on profane. This is especially jarring given her dialogue is written as though she is very sweet and innocent.

Despite these flaws, the game is colorful and fun with only a couple friends. You can form guilds, but only four-odd of you can run a dungeon at once anyway, so you don't need to bring a legion.

And Tinkerer is SUPER CUTE. Give it a shot and see if you like it.

It hits a certain nostalgic note that made Ragnarok, Legend of Mana, and other past RPG's I've played enjoyable; then adds something special with some Vindictus tied in. It's nothing that will have me playing for days on end due to addiction like I've had in other games, but this game has a lot of charm and makes me feel warm and fuzzy when I play it! It's an awesome casual MMO experience that I highly recommend to anyone looking to try out something different from what they've played before. I know you'll feel warm, fuzzy, and nostaligically satisfied too!

I love this game. One of the first to implement a dynamic combat system into an mmorpg. This feature is incredibly fun and requres skill to aim at your enemies in order to use spells and such. Classes are gender-locked and are somewhat generic. Some translations are a little bit off as well. If you can overlook these cons, you get an incredibly fun game to play. I recommend playing around in a guild so you can play in nests on later levels so you can get optimal gear and money.

One of the few free to plays I'll recommend currently. It's a fun little brawler with plenty of charm and the cash shop is fairly non-intrusive unlike some other F2P's I could mock right now. Give it a shot, it's at least worth the cost of entry...
