Shanda Games International - Press Release 9/2014

Eschborn, Germany, 9th July 2014: Shanda Games International Europe introduces the Desert Dragon Nest’s much more difficult version Desert Dragon Nest Hardcore in their action MMORPG Dragon Nest Europe. In the shadow of the Desert Dragon, evil Jasmine’s mecha-army occupies another new dungeon and a whiff of Steampunk makes its way into the Cash Shop. Many class skills are rebalanced, setting a new groundwork for future character builds.

The Wrath of the Desert Dragon Reloaded

Even if the regular Desert Dragon Nest itself already is a tough nut to crack, there still is room for a bigger challenge. If players want to beat the Desert Dragon Nest Hardcore, they will have to defeat all stage bosses as well as the dragon within a 40 minutes time limit and will have to make do without reviving even a single time. Only if raid parties meet these conditions, players will receive legendary Desert Dragon set pieces and legendary crafting materials. 

Requiem of Twilight in Jasmine’s Expedition Base

Set to destroy the present to prevent her own future from happening, the army in Jasmine’s Expedition Base is another new story dungeon players can explore now, starting at the Tel Rosa Gate. By collecting Death Coins from remote quests that are available via scrolls from Tel Rosa monsters and bosses, players can unlock an event mob, the Joker Skeleton, which can be summoned in any of the Tel Rosa dungeons.

Skill Balancing and Rock of Blessing

With six classes being around for quite some time now, some slight changes to the skill balance were in order. The class with the most changes is the warrior, especially the sub-classes Moon Lord and Gladiator. In terms of game play, the Rock of Blessing is patched this month; an item existing only three times on the entire server, which gives a remarkable buff to the bearer, and all party members.

Cash Shop etc.

Shanda Games International Europe also brings a completely new sense of style to Dragon Nest Europe, namely by unlocking a brand-new 7-part costume set sporting a sleek Steampunk look and stunning Dragon Hatchling Wings.
