Mercenary system (Heroes Assemble System) was introduced in Dragon Nest KR on 13th Aug. It allows players to summon an NPC to aid them in battle. For more information on the mercenary system, refer to Dragon Nest KR 13th Aug update note.
Each mercenary comes with 2 active skills. The skill effects for A/S-grade mercenaries are translated by Sieg and chaose5. All active skills of mercenary has a CD of 60sec and are affected by CD reduction skills (advantage goes to Force Users, Acrobats and Alchemists). Also, only the effect (buff/debuff) of skills are cited (skill dmg is omitted) and only certain passive skills (skills which mercenary cast on their own) are listed.
Dragon Nest Movie: Warriors’ Dawn, the full movie has been released.
The land of Altera has observed an uneasy peace for years among Humans, Elves and Evil beasts who are loyal to the legendary Black Dragon. But the Black Dragon begins to stir from its hibernation, sending the Beasts marching across Altera. With a beast conquest perilously close, a small group of Humans and Elves unite to try to find a secret hidden road to the Black Dragon’s cave and destroy it. But the fate of all of them may be in the hands of the young warrior Lambert, who must summon the confidence and skill to face the Black Dragon himself just when all may be lost.
Lencea has seen a relatively lackluster reception ever since she was released in CDN. Not only is discussion about her scarce both here and on duowan, her actual performance despite her skill values / supposed benefits hasn’t exactly been what people expected. Here I wish to share some figures for consideration.
Level 50 cap of Blade & Soul Online introduces a revamped weapon and accessory upgrade system. One of the major characteristics of the new system is the prefix change or mutation mechanics. Godly Weapon S1, S2 and S3, along with Legendary Accessories are granted a random prefix after leveling them to level 2. The prefix can be changed when the equipment is level up again (up to level 10). Each prefix come with unique stats and ability.
