What is it?
If you missed our beta review last week, you can take a closer look at the game here. Dragon's Prophet is a fantasy based MMO in which you can capture, train and ride dragons. There are over three hundred in game, and as well as making cool mounts they also fight alongside you in battle.
Dragon's Prophet has a rich and lengthy lore, which you can read here. The game is set in a time of fragile peace, long after a war between mankind (The Osira) and dragons that changed the face of the world. But now, new evil is stirring, the leader of The Osira is missing and the fight is about to start all over again.
The game also features an unusual combat system for an MMO - instead of the traditional tab targeting, button mashing combat that players of WOW style games will be used to, in Dragon's Prophet you target by facing your opponent and use skills by using the mouse to create left and right click combos and with keyboard shortcuts. It makes for a refreshing change from traditional combat systems.
The dragons are what this game is really all about, and they don't disappoint. They come in all shapes and sizes, with different skills to complement different classes. Players can tame and train them, adjusting their stats to compliment their own build. Flying dragons also give you a chance to appreciate and explore the stunning landscape from above.
Although the game has only four classes -Gulardian, Oracle, Ranger and Sorcerer, they are highly adjustable and can be specialised using the Talent Tree. This along with the dragons you pair them with allows you to create very unique characters.
As well as classic questing, areas host open world events that you can get into if you happen to be passing by. These reward players based on their contribution, and make a nice change from questing. The dungeon system is also interesting, with various levels of difficultly scaling up to instances that whole guilds can tackle together.
Last but not least,the world itself is pretty nifty looking, with gorgeously detailed landscapes, dramatic skies and beautiful water effects. This along with the unusual combat system and the inspiring, classical music makes for a very immersive gaming experience.
