Shanda Games International Europe GmbH - Press Release 2/2014

Eschborn, 12th February 2014: Publisher Shanda Games International Europe further enhances the free to play action MMORPG Dragon Nest Europe by adding the new class Kali. Her captivating looks, her impressive combat versatility and her magic skills render her an unpredictable and dangerous opponent for her foes.

Spiritual Powers

Her graceful melee combat style paired with the ability to summon spirits is feared by evil powers all over Althea. Combining melee and range attacks with awe-inspiring dark magic makes her a well-rounded damage dealer. Especially in medium-ranged fights, her distinctive and unique techniques take full effect. The recently released trailer provides a first insight into the sheer destructive power the Kali can force upon her enemies:

Deadly Weapons and Dark Magic

The Kali’s weapons both focus and boost her skills: Mystic Fans unleash devastating dark charms on her enemies. Razor-sharp Chakrams turn into merciless instruments of destruction as the Kali relentlessly slashes and dances her way through enemy lines.

After the first job specialization at level 15, the new class becomes even more dangerous. Depending on their taste, players can enhance their spirit summons as a Screamer or improve their Chakram techniques as a Dancer. The second specialization is available at level 45, and Screamers can further specialize into becoming a Dark Summoner or a Soul Eater, whereas Dancers can choose to become either a Blade Dancer or a Spirit Dancer.

Background: The Second Prophet

A long time ago, when the Ancient war was raging at its height, the arrival of a savior was prophesied: Born in the light of the Destiny Star and blessed with the power of the Ancients, the prophet was destined to lead Althea into an age of peace and prosperity. Many believed Rose to be this savior, but in the same night, the Shadow Star bathed a secluded village in its demonic light.  Beneath the light of the Shadow Star another child was born.

Hidden away from the rest of the world, the child was called Kali and guided by her mentor Gaharam, she devoted her life to mastering the secret shamanistic powers of her ancestors. Her training came to a quick end when Dragon Followers raided and destroyed her home village. The Kali miraculously found herself the sole survivor of this incident. Wielding her dark magic, she summons her old mentor and embarks on a long journey to find and protect Rose, whatever the cost.
