Dragon Nest incorporates non-targeting system gameplay to create a fast paced action filled experience. Players choose from a range of hero classes, characters that are of the Dragon Nest storyline that can equip customizable gear and weapons. Devastating skills can also be learned, to increase one’s power when defeating monsters in instanced dungeons or defeating other players in PVP.
Dragon Nest also has the advantage of being nearly completely skill based, with lower level characters being able to defeat high level characters in PVP with skill alone. This allows a more experienced player that is of a lower level to dominate a less experienced player of a higher level player in PVP.Classes
Dragon Nest characters exist in worlds. Players can create up to 4 characters per world. These characters cannot interact with one another, with the exception of mailing each other. Players can have 4 choices when creating a character. They are Archer, Cleric, Sorceress and Warrior. The Academic class is not available yet in some releases(DN SEA had recently released the Academic class). The Archer and Warrior class start their journey in Prairie Town (Ironwood Village in NA Version), while the Cleric, Sorceress and Academic classes start their journey in Mana Ridge. After reaching level 15, they can choose to advance to second class, and third class at level 45. At these job advancements, they can choose to specialize in one of the two classes available, creating a grand total of 20 sub classes.
