Dragon Nest News – Going All Out for PvP

Earlier this summer, Dragon Nest won the MMORPG.com award for Best PvP at E3 2011. In a new developer blog on the official site, Desmodeus, the lead producer for Dragon Nest, talks about PvP in the game and what makes it so unique, particularly focusing on skills, not stuff.

Skillz, not Stuff

When it comes to PvP, I believe that player skill rather than equipment should make the difference in whether you live or die, and this is true in Dragon Nest. For instance, we put a system in place that balances damage output between players of different levels. That means that you won’t be able to dominate the arena simply because you happen to have a 24th level Bow of Awesomeness. Learn to use your skills and combos effectively, and you can beat a higher level opponent.

Legendary Symphony Event

Legendary Symphony Event

Legendary Symphony Event

Music has always been a part of Atreia, from the town musicians to the musically-inspired Songweaver. The Legendary Symphony is the rarest of music scores and has been around since the beginning of the shattered world. With the fall of Tiamat, the Legendary Symphony score has been lost but with Beritra’s invasion into Atreia, the pieces of the Symphony have been showing up in the deepest of dungeons. Recreate the Legendary Symphony by collecting its five score pieces to trade for event prizes of your choosing!
 

– How to Participate –

The five scores of the Legendary Symphony can be found in specific instances. The scores are the Legendary Symphony – First Movement, Legendary Symphony – Second Movement, Legendary Symphony – Third Movement, Legendary Symphony – Fourth Movement, and Legendary Symphony – Epilogue. You combine these pieces to create the complete Legendary Symphony Copy, which can be traded in for event prizes. Each movement piece is tradeable (except for the Legendary Symphony Copy) so swap between friends, legionmates or sell it to the highest bidder. The Legendary Symphony – First Movement and Legendary Symphony – Epilogue are also available on the store.

Legendary Symphony Event

Part 1: Searching for the Scores

Getting your hands on pieces of the Symphony score won’t be easy as it is only available from defeating bosses in certain instances listed below.

The movements of the Symphony are scattered among these five instances. Defeat the boss for a chance to obtain one or more of the items.

Part 2: Trading for Scores

Talk to Event NPC Sonatine to complete her first quest and to unlock additional event quests. The first quest is to trade 10 Legendary Symphony – First Movement to Sonatine. She will give you (1) Legendary Symphony Copy and unlock repeatable quests for additional score turn-ins. Andante’s quests will also be available after you complete first quest from Sonatine. With repeatable quests available from Sonatine and Andante, you can trade in 10 or 100 of the movements you don’t need for a random movement in return. When lucky, these quests can also provide a copy of the completed score – or even a stack of copies!

Part 3: Event Surveys & More

Every day for the duration of the event, an in-game survey will be available once per account for level 30+ characters. This survey offers (1) Legendary Symphony Copy, so be sure to log in every day and claim your copy! Prestige Pack holders will receive an additional daily survey on their character with the Prestige Badge. The Legendary Symphony Copy is not tradeable so be sure to complete the survey on the character you want the item on!

We will also be holding giveaways on Twitter for Legendary Symphony Copy items so follow us for giveaway details!

The rewards can be viewed in the Upgrade Arcade menu and are distributed randomly from the upgrade tier you end on. Remember, you can claim your reward at any time. If you want that prize at Upgrade Level 6 without risking a failure on your next attempt, hit the Rewards button to claim it right away.
