Monsters & Boss Battles

In Dragonica Online adventurers will encounter a diverse range of monsters and bosses as they travel to unique lands throughout the world. Players will quickly learn they have entered a completely new world as monsters in Dragonica range from ankle-biting tree stumps known as Woodsters to colossal dragons. Monsters in Dragonica are designed to challenge players as well as entertain adventurers while exploring new lands, growing their characters and attaining higher levels. Whether you're striking down herds of mad sheep by the flockful, battling raccoons sporting plungers as helmets or crossing swords with dastardly Shark Pirates, Dragonica's enemies offer humorous fun and intense challenges.

Players eager for the toughest challenges can challenge Elite monsters lurking in Mission Maps or battle perilous Dungeon Bosses located in the most dangerous areas of Dragonica. Dungeon Bosses are massive in size and use unique combat styles, forcing adventurers to learn new combat strategies to triumph over these epic encounters. At launch, Dragonica Online will feature over twenty elite monsters and bosses.

One of the first Dungeon Bosses players will face is the mad scientist Dr. Farrell. Corrupted by the sinister witch Paris, the formerly peaceful Doctor was driven to obsession in order to serve her dark ends. Now mutated into a hideous beast by excessive self-experimentation, Dr. Farrell threatens to unleash his darkest experiment yet upon the world.

Story Overview

Since the close of the First Dragon War, dragons and humans lived in peace on separate worlds - humans on their homeland, dragons exiled to a distant realm.

It was not to last.

Consumed with the desire for revenge, the Dark Dragon Elga became obsessed with the ultimate power of the Five Elements. Building an army of followers, he led a revolt that brought about the death of Vyvern the Dragon Lord and an invasion of the human world.

Split into two factions, the dragons battled mercilessly until the noble dragon Dekard allied with five human champions who took on the power of the Elements. Together they defeated Elga and would be known thereafter as the legendary Five Heroes.

One thousand years have passed since Elga was defeated and imprisoned in the labyrinth known as the Shadow Cabinet.

Now, an unlikely agent threatens to release the Dark Dragon, spreading evil's corruption across the land. And, as before, heroes must rise to beat back the darkness.

Join the quest to vanquish the threat - explore a fantastical world rife with monsters and dragons, challenges to overcome and adventures to discover. Choose your class, master powerful skills and grow your character into a legendary hero.
