About This Game

From the creators of Runes of Magic, Dragon's Prophet is a free to play fantasy MMO that transports you to the breathtaking world of Auratia, a realm where dragons fill the sky. For thousands of years, the epic wars between ancient dragons have threatened to plunge Auratia into chaos. Now, an even greater danger has emerged that threatens the very existence of the realm. Explore the vast land as you attempt to CAPTURE, TRAIN, RIDE, AND FIGHT hundreds of unique dragons!

Features:


DRAGONS EVERYWHERE: In a world shaped by dragon-kind, hundreds of unique dragons roam the lands. CAPTURE, TRAIN, RIDE, and FIGHT them in order to unlock their unique skills and abilities.

ACTION-BASED COMBAT SYSTEM: Dragon’s Prophet uses a unique auto-target and combo system that immerses players in visceral battles and action gameplay. This system gives players a higher degree of control, and a wider range of tactical options than traditional MMOs.

BEAUTIFUL IMMERSIVE WORLD: Players are transported to the breathtaking world of Auratia, which is filled with amazingly detailed landscapes. Mysteries, challenges and monsters await players as they fight not just for their own survival, but for the survival of the entire realm.

UNIQUE PLAYER CLASSES: Players will choose from four distinct player classes to begin their journey into Auratia. Whether they prefer to get in close, shoot an arrow into a dragon’s eye, or blast an entire group of goblins with ranged DPS, there is a class for every player.

YOUR DRAGON DESTINY: The dragons a player captures will shape their character and, ultimately, their fate. Will you be a legendary fighter? Can you capture and train a dragon that will stand alongside you in the heat of battle? Capturing the right dragons is the difference between life and death!

Ok, so this is my first review so bear with me on this.

Pros:
-The idea that the creators were going for in this game was something I've always wanted see happen, taming and fighting alongside dragons is amazing.
-The combat system in this game is pretty good.
-The graphics are great if your computer can handle them.
-The comunity is generally pretty chill.
-Skills are unique.
-Models are nicely done for the most part.
-Leveling isn't overly difficult if you do all your sidequests, but you will need to grind for some of them.
-Character customization is pretty decent.
-You can buy almost anything from the market place without having to actually play if you play enough.


Cons:
-The game also has its downsides as well, the PvP system is hard to even consider good.
-The game is basically PvE oriented.
-If you're not in a large guild good luck getting a party together for raid dungeons.
-The population of this game is tiny compared to other MMO's
-There's bugs galore for a lot of things but they get fixed within the next patch.
-Reskinned models everywhere.
-Renamed armor pieces await you around every corner.
-There is a slight pay to win factor in the game but that's expected of any SOE game.
-You can only solo play for so long.
-The Patch Notes are translated horribly (Runewaker is stationed in Taiwan so all the patch notes are translated to english)
-The first 2 beginning zones are no longer open.

Overall, this game has its ups and downs but I enjoy playing it and I don't regret putting all this time into it.
I'd give it a 7.9/10

The game seems pretty great, being an MMO with unique things like taming/riding dragons, even as early as you can. Fast paced combat, smooth movement and pretty high body configurations.

Things that i personally found funny, is that when making a female character, you are able customize the chest/waist area alot more than any other areas of the body, like what i mean is, theres about like 10 things you can edit on the chest alone, as well as the buttox. Another thing, was AI i can seem to confuse easily, like hiding behind things or whatever, and it ends up making the AI stand completely still, and i can whack away at them but they cant get at me. (Could be different for you, but me persoanlly have run into that plentiful of times.)

To me, i think the only downfall to this game, is the capeability of doing things. For example, you have an extremely small space for just about anything, and most of it is only cash shop bought, sadly enough. But, the good side to that, is that its mostly all very dirt cheap, which i found reasonable, and i myself, being dirt poor find that these prices are quite reachable.

So, having binged on this game solidly for a while and explored a bit of the mechanics ($60 worth of SC investment), here are my impressions so far.

DON'T LET THE DRAGON ASPECT GET YOU SUCKED IN.

It is the only redeemable part of the game, but you will not get anywhere with the amount of Dragon Stable space provided. And you either have to spend thousands of hours to add to it (through limited daily quests, so actually months of work), or unlock it with cash.

Every single quest is typical MMO blargh of kill X, collect Y, etc. That's the rest of the game. Aside from the dragon gimmick, that's it.

But the game doesn't only lack what have become MMO staples (group looting, quest items not taking up bag space,etc.) it actually MONETIZE them. So rather than running around and picking up scattered loot, you can pay $7 and have a pet do it for you. Rather than a quest bag to hold quest items in, they go directly into your bag, leaving little room for anything else. So the game almost demands that you buy bag space or spend most of your time in-game traveling rather than playing.

The PvP, which I have not experienced, but have discussed with fully-geared level 94 players, means that if you aren't paying into the game or raiding to get components and purple gear, you can't really compete. There is no separation as say... Guild Wars 2. The environments are bland, the dungeon fights up to 40 (including Luna) are boring and lackluster. I've had more fun content thrown at me in the opening 10 levels of Guild Wars 2 than the 40 levels of content I've experienced in Dragon's Prophet.

The reason I keep mentioning GW2 is because that's what I feel like this game is trying to be, except it has none of the innovation, creativity or talent that the GW2 team has. SOE essentially has published a broken, unfinished game under its name in North America so it can reap some of the benefits of its microtransactions and frankly, it's shameful.

I cannot recommend this game at the moment until it gets some of the basic mechanics other MMOs (even MMOs in SOE's own line-up already have). In fact, I'm reinstalling Guild Wars 2 to get the bad taste of this game out of my mouth.

The following are my personal impressions of the game Dragon's Prophet.

I'll start with eye candy. There's plenty of it. The wonderful character models are a cross between TERA and GW2 with tons of customization options. NPCs vary in style enough so that you really don't see the same person with a different name/skin/outfit on every corner. The dragons vary as much as the character models! You've got dragons that crawl, stride, fly, swim...and it's fun trying to catch the rares if not frustrating and terribly time consuming. Environments are colorful and vast and detailed enough that they don't seem like an afterthought. You know, as if all the resources went into making the players and dragons and nothing went into the world in which said players would interact in. Framerates seem solid and you can get comparable visuals on a nvidia 460m and a 680GTX.

Gameplay follows the ever popular action style as seen in TERA and NWN. No TAB targeting here. It's aim your in-game avatar at a mob and press the attack to...well, inflict harm on said mob. While you can simple hack-n-slash, the combination system is worth learning. Combat is easy to learn making this game so easy a caveman could play it. Character leveling is not a grindfest (at first). QUests are plentiful and there are mulitple events in every zone that award experience points as well as the seemingly pre-requisite ten daily quests. All in all, players are kept fairly busy. Skills and stats can be increased as players level up. Some skills branch in two directions so a player has to make a choice how they want to build their character. For instance, do I specialize in one-hand/shield slash-n-bash or two-handed dismemberments? There are only a few classes, but they seem to provide enough variety to keep it interesting. You really get a sense of epicness though. It's satisfying to see your puny human single handedly take down a dungeon boss dragon.

The audio is fine. Sound effects, music (love the character selection screen theme) and ambient are clear, crisp and with individual volume controls, easy to customize to one's liking.

Now, what I didn't like so much. While early leveling seems easy, post 60 seems to slow down significantly. I've asked in game if this is normal and the majority of responses seem to support that. The constant grinding and repeats of dailies is why I burned out. However, to be fair and thorough, I am primarily a solo player, so those that thrive on groups, guild drama and PUGs may have an entirely different experience. Also, I have yet to play an MMO other than RoM (who is closely associated with this game) to provide multiple start locations. This may be due to only the obligatory human as the only selectable race. Cash shop. So far, most of what I've seen are questing aids and cosmetic. No "enchant your gear with +5DMG for $5" stuff. Sure, there are rare dragons sold, but so far nothing that makes me think "Pay2Win" over "Free2Pay" (yes, purposely left out the'l') The system seems more like NWN than RoM.

Overall, I love the game. I find it a good balance between simple gameplay, RPG elements and visuals. I'd recommend it to anyone (mind the game rating), it's free after all.
