Producer's Letter May 2014

05-27-2014

Hey Fellow Dragon Riders,

Can you believe that it's been a full year since Dragon’s Prophet launched our closed beta phase?! For those who were not there, just before closed beta was the final time we wiped characters.  During this past year so much has been changed, improved upon, and we've seen quite a lot of new content as well.  The fun isn't stopping now though. Summer is almost here and we have some very exciting stuff coming now and in the next few months.

First let’s look at a chronological highlight of Dragon’s Prophet over the past year.

Finally, in the Marketplace we've added some things to help level your Dragons faster, new Dragons, Companions who auto loot for you, costume weapons & armor, talking Dragon Statues for your house, holiday themed furniture, houses, and much more.

NEW content

But wait, there’s more...  We have a lot of new content coming your way over the next few months. In our next update we'll be introducing a full new area, called Porthis. Included in this new zone will be two adventure dungeons; Bladeguard Underpass and Morran Cavern. Porthis is quite a large area with many new quests and public events (PEs). One of my favorite spots is the “hidden” underwater entrances to the Scourger’s Crypt. That’s all I'll say to keep from spoiling it for you. Oh, another fun aspect of this update will be that the level cap shall also be increased to 98; currently at 94 (for those who have not reached this pinnacle of awesomeness yet).  Best of luck in the new dungeons and getting to level 98!

Soon we'll be adding a new raid dungeon, The Nucleus of Time. This raid dungeon will also allow up to 10 players. Expect it to be very tough, challenging, but also very fun. We have a revamp of the Mastery system, and improvements to the Siege War system in the very near future. Also, we'll be adding a Golden Suit quest to the Dragon Arena and the Frontier islands.

In the months to follow we have several big feature additions. One I am very excited about is the Dragon hatchling system... ohhhh, what is that?!

Hopefully this is a good amount of information for you to absorb and keep you excited. We have some great content coming up. Looking forward to seeing you in-game.

Cheers!
