Rangers Lead the Way!

Greetings Knights!

A few select knights are brave and crazy enough to drop behind enemy lines. Lieutenant Desna and her elite Recon Rangers are the first line of attack. Dangerous Prize Boxes feature items favored by Desna and the Rangers. Not only is this gear is designed to intimidate, but also do as much damage to the enemy as possible. As requested by Desna, their armor is equipped with razor-sharp spikes and other hazardous features, because “Even a dead Ranger should make their foes bleed.”

Recon Rangers are trained never to give up. Each Ranger is outfitted with a shield known as The Bitter End--the name serves as a reminder to all as to precisely how far a Recon Ranger is willing to go.

Contents include:
* Dangerous Dragon Wings (new)
* The Bitter End
* Anti-Personnel Spikes
* Dangerous themed armor and helms
* Dangerous themed accessories (new)

Dangerous 2016 Prize Boxes are available from now through October 18th, 2016, and details on the box can be found here.

Honestly, after playing this game for years and spending hours upon hours and multitudes of my money I can say that while this is/was a rock solid MMO and I had nothing but fun in it, I cannot recommend it to play to anyone. It's far to dead, the golden has all but faded into ashes at our feet and the few players left either don't care and are merely waiting for the game or are just denying the inevitable.

The PVP used to be awesome, full teams Tiers 1-3 hundreds of players and competition and while there was a meta fun weapons could always be found. Now it's nothing but AAcheron to win and full BK and if you don't have that or a derivitive some othe rplayer will and they'll dumpster your day.

The PvE oh man, where do i begin. Before missions and all those updates it was one of the funnest, most explorative, planned, and beautiful creations I had ever seen in a game like this. But now it's nothing but a shodw of its former self. The enemies were fun, diving was a challenge that required planning and a variety of gear. It was fun to meet up with other knights and plan a party so you could do an entire boss run together. Now, you just need 3 swords, a gun, and one set of armor and you can carry your way through the entire game.

The art, it's so freaking beautiful. The concept, the execution, was all amazing. Again, it has become a shadow of what it once was.

In the end, this game is exactly that a shadow. It's fallen from it's once great perch to a low where it still could be an amazing game but it simply lacks the support and desire to become anything.

The sad truth, is this game was a solid 10/10 amazing game to play and I would love nothing more than to go 2-3 years back in time and replay the best moments of my life in this game. but as of today, while it's still a great game i don't want anyone to get sucke din and then leave feeling empty.

This game is for wasting peoples time and money, they make the game lag when you are fighting monsters I am almost 100% sure the devs put that in there to kill people so they would buy "sparks of life", after years of playing this game off and on I can say the game runs worse then ever. The worst part of this dogpile is that they forced it into your Steam library by buying Sonic CD a awesome game, worth paying money for.

I like the idea this game brings and it's gameplay, but because the devs are scaming money out of people I can't recomend buying anything in this game, but I can say that you should at least see what this game could have been if they made a standalone 4 player, one time buy game. It's such a waste this game had to be degraded by a pay-to-win model.

The gameplay is very relaxing/easy going. I would describe it as a puzzle/shooter/dungeon crawler game.
I don't really have anything to complain about at all. Try the game out and you might just like it.

even if mist energy was removed and it became just Energy, you can still make your way to the level of the rich people by playing just sovereign slime and vanduke, and going different "classes" is really fun if you even have the time to play sovereign slime and vanduke for hours and hours without getting bored

grind for eternity or pay up, classes exist

i take long breaks from this game so i dont have too much solid experience with it even though ive played it for a few years now but remember i said i took long breaks from it and i've also NEVER GOTTEN TO STAR 5 so im a newb
