This Article is about the Top MUD Achaea, Dreams of Divine Lands.
In Achaea, when you hunt there is an overall goal, becoming a Dragon Lord. This is when you reach level 99, you can then morph into a Dragon. Dragon form has many different abilities, each one unique and useful. There are over 20 abilities you gain when you achieve dragon, and each different type of Dragon you become also has unique abilities that come with it. The different colors you can be as a Dragon are red,black, blue, green, silver, gold, and black. One of the abilities a Dragon can do is Pierce the Veil and you can walk to anywhere on the continent by “piercing the veil”.
Each of the different Dragon colors, like I said come with different specialties. Their color kind of says a bit, but I will list them here. The specialty is when the breath, and it is critical to combat as Dragons. Red breathes fire as you can assume. What do you think Blue breathes? Cold. Green breathes venom onto you. Gold breathes psi. Black breathes acid. Silver releases lightning with each breath. They are all VERY unique and that is what makes them so interesting.
Hunting as dragon is also very fun. You are much stronger and all your stats are increased greatly so you have more health, mana, endurance, and willpower. This allows you to take on bigger opponents, and be tanker and stronger! So now you can hunt bigger and better. Unfortunately, this would make hunting way to easy so in dragon form, experience comes at half the rate. But then in great hunts, which is double experience, it comes in a normal rate! Usually in dragon form you use your claws to kill denizens. You might think that hunting once you have dragon is stronger, but as you level up passed 99, you still get stronger like any other level. So you can become even bigger and badder.
PvP combat in dragon form is very fun. You can switch off between Dragon form and your “lesser” form. Lesser form is what you were before dragon, so your original class and all those abilities. Back in lesser form, experience comes at a normal rate. So if you need one of the Dragon abilities you can take the short time to morph into a dragon, or if you need your lesser form abilities you can morph back down and use those. So you are pretty much two beings mushed into one. Dragon has all the abilities that come with it, so you can claw, bite your enemy,consume their corpses, pick them up with your maw and rattle them around, and plenty more!
So now you know a bit about what comes with Dragons, this is just the small portion of it. I will let you explore the rest when you get it for yourself! Go ahead and give Achaea a try and see if you can get dragon. Next time, I’ll talk about HOW to get dragon efficiently, and in a not boring way.
