Reviews

“If you're looking to dip your toes in the free-to-play ocean, Dragon Nest is certainly a good place to do it.”
8.5 out of 10 – IGN

“Besides from a few quirks, Dragon Nest provides an enjoyable experience with fast-paced gameplay that many other action MORPGs barely come close to reaching. Whether you’re a casual or competitive gamer that wants a good action fix, Dragon Nest in the year of 2014 will do nicely to fit the bill.”
4 out of 5 – MMOHuts

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 nine 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. 32 jobs are waiting for your choice and you can easily level up our heroes.
When you reach the Max level, you finally play the our proud core - contents, Dragon Nest.
Also various contents will provide deep and worthful experience to all of you.

I miss the good ol' days, when PVP was fun, PvE was grindy, and communities were made. I've followed this game for awhile now with +4000 hrs logged in (favored the launcher over steam) and i'm pretty bummed about the route this game went. One hit bossess and mobs all the way till cap in PvE, PvP is pretty dead now, and so is alot of the towns. Mostly just vets and idles lookin for them ever so juicy likes. This game will always have a great place in my heart, and wallet. Here's to hoping MapleStory 2 comes to us Westerners and that its not ♥♥♥♥ on like this. I'd reccommend if we could go back about 3 or so years...how the time flies...

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

Really love this game, I highly recommend it to anyone who has had bad community experiences from other big MMORPGs. The community is quite the best I have ever seen, very many helpful players and guilds, (Of course there are the bad apples in the basket!) and very willing to help anyone who needs it. Fun game, it's not exactly play-to-win if you don't want to buy anything. By far one of my most favorite games.

This game is so fun and fast paced. I've played a lot of MMORPGs and Action MMOs but none have kept me coming back like this one. Leveling is fast, combat is fast, and as a result of those two things your ability to prevail is more dependent on skill than any other MMO I've played. PvE and PvP are both excellent. Only con I can think of is the key binding defaults are not good enough with a full skill bar, but allow me to negate that with my custom keybinds for the skill bar!

Instead of 1234567890-= I use 1234QERTZXCV so that all my skills are within reach of WASD

Problem solved!

The transfer from Nexon finishes tonight at 10PM, I expect a lot of players will come for this event and I'm hoping with this review some more players will sign up!!

In summary: best MMO I've played, period.

PS I've played much more than 72 hours, but I didn't use the steam version previously so it didn't record all that.

NOTICE: The server is down and has recently changed from Nexon to Eyedentity for NA. For anyone trying to play at the moment and can't that's why. Just figured I'd let everyone know in case people were wondering.

If when Eyedentity takes over is anything when Neople took DFO, this should go very VERY well for the game. <3
