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.

Dragon's Prophet...I won't beat about the bush, this has to be THE BEST MMO I have ever played, hands down.

Take Guild Wars, add the depth of WoW, but the combat system of neverwinter and TERA, the creature battling content of Pokemon, and the exploration of a console platformer, and Dragon's Prophet is basically what you get.

Dragon's Prophet doesn't nesecarily break the MMO mold, but it does manage to get every possible apsect of the MMO perfectly right.

The combat is a refreshing change of pace from the dismal, mindless grind of WoW. It's basically like Vindictus and TERA had a scaly baby. Since you're actually DOING something while in combat, merely killing mobs is enjoyable.
(And unlike TERA, Dragon's Prophet doesn't restrict your movement speed in combat, which is nice.)

Dragon's Prophet also features a more fluid questing system. Sure, there are your traditional MMO style quests, but there are also public events. (Basically skirmishes that break out from time to time in certain places.)
The game also features "surprise" quests that pop up as you journey through the world, which really contributes to making this game feel alive. (Things like rescuing travelers from bandits or doom dragons, helping wandering doctors to save a patient, picking up a rare dragon's egg, ect.) Not to mention some quests are activated by finding secret hidden things, exploring the world carefully is well rewarded.
To my great surpirse, Dragon's Prophet actually rewards exploration quite a bit, which is both odd and wonderful for an MMO.

And of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the dragons. Dragons can be captured, trained, battled, ridden, hatched from eggs, I meant it when I said it was like Pokemon with dragons.
And yes, you are totally free to fly your dragons wherever you want. No invisible walls. Flying is a pure joy in this game.
It also makes travelling a breeze.

And did I meantion you can have a house in this game? Yes. A FLIPPIN' HOUSE!
Or an apartment, or a secret tower, or a mansion...and you can decorate the whole thing.
THE WHOLE THING. With furnature...furnature you build with recipes you find in the world.
And the house isn't just pretty to look at, you can store stuff, hatch eggs...it's basically a house.

Add that to terretory war PVP, and GvG combat, and there probably isn't a single thing you could add to this game.
(Except perhaps more dragons.)

The story isn't nesecarily a triumph of RPG lore...the devs clearly spent almost all of their time worried about the gameplay.

Finally, I can tell the burning question on your mind. "Is it really F2P?" Yes, as a matter of fact, it is totally Free to play.
In fact, this has to be the LEAST Pay 2 Win game I have ever played.
This game features a detailed character creation system, which is entirely free.
With the exception of a few costumes, EVERYTHING in this game can be obtained without spending a single cent.
The only things this game will attempt to charge you for is extra inventory space, dragon slots, and certain costumes.
Convenience is what this game sells in its cash shop, not power or "win."
However, in addition to all that, Dragon's Prophet also features Dragon Insignias, tokens that can be obtained from daily quests which can BE USED TO PURCHASE VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING IN THE CASH SHOP.
That's right, if you don't want to pay money for something in the cash shop, you have two options.
Get it by playing the game, OR COLLECT TOKENS FROM DAILY QUESTS AND BUY IT ANYWAY.
Truly, no one has any right to call this game "pay 2 win" or "money greedy" because this game even lets you get the stuff in the cash shop by just collecting tokens.

Bear in mind, this game only recently came out of closed beta, so optimization is still a little iffy.
However, so long as you make sure you use the 64 bit version of the game, crashing and glitching is kept at a minimum.
Except for a small memory leak, the game has very few problems aside from being a little bulkier then it should be.
(Something the devs merely have yet to fix.)
Glitches that do appear are fixed with reasonable expedience. This game may have been buggy in beta, but most of those bugs stayed in beta. DP isn't finished quite yet, but technical hiccups are minimal.
Seriously though, use the 64-bit version. The 32-bit version is another matter entirely...YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

To sum it all up, Dragon's Prophet is a criminally overlooked, heinously underrated game that deserves the lavish praise most MMOs don't. If you're looking for a game that is truly free to play, a pure joy merely TO PLAY, with content so deep you could DROWN in it, with FREAKING DRAGONS, then this is the MMO for you.

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.
