Dragon Nest has been updated for the first time in 2014. Included in the patch is the new Talisman System that allows players to enhance stats in the following categories: trength, Agility, Intellect, Physical/Magical Damage, Critical Rate, Paralyze ability, and Stun chance.
Players who have reached Level 50 and above can access the 3rd Abyss Expansion, which includes the story of Jasmine’s discovery of an Ancients’ ruins and it’s power. Over 20 new quests have been added to challenge players within the 3rd Abyss Expansion.
Using the new Talisman tab on the Character Window, Talismans can be dragged into any open slot on the player’s character. This increases or decreases the player’s stats based on slot location. Players can only equip these talismans while in town or before they descend into dungeons or player versus player (PvP) arenas.
And for players looking for the ultimate challenge, there’s the new Desert Dragon Nest: Hardcore Mode! Desert Dragon Nest: Hardcore Mode will open up for those who are level 60 and have the “Zakad’s Third Eye,” which can be obtained from Desert Dragon Nest Normal Mode. In Hardcore mode the nest must be cleared in less than 40 minutes and can only be cleared once a week. The toughest challenge of all is that players cannot revive if they die. Once the mode has been completed, players will be rewarded with an exclusive achievements, Legendary items and equipment, and Legendary Hidden Ability Sparks.
