Dragon Nest News – Much Fun Beneath the Surface

Dragon Nest is Nexon's latest addition to its stable of free to play MMOs and one that has been highly publicized by the company. In our latest review, MMORPG.com's Lori May takes a look at Dragon Nest and puts it through its paces. Check out what Lori's got to say and then let us know of your experiences in the comments.

Dragon Nest is the latest MMO from Nexon, the company behind Vindictus, MapleStory and Combat Arms, and here at MMORPG we felt compelled to take a look at this brand new free-to-play (F2P) title. Especially in the wake of a fairly major update earlier in October, Dragon Nest is an MMO very much on the cusp of either critics’ recognition and fan support, or a wave of disappointed players who will never touch the title again. So, the question really is: Which one are you?

EVE Online News – CCP Unveils Monument to EVE Online

When an MMO slips from the digital global right into the real one, it’& rsquo; s typically through t-shirts, fiction and various other must-haves for the specialized follower. Which is just what makes the most up to date job by CCP Video games much more unusual – a 5 metre high monument to EVE Online.

Positioned on the Reykjavik seafront as well as a stone’& rsquo; s toss from CCP HQ, “& ldquo; Globals Within A Globe” & rdquo; is formed of two columns that face each various other, with a sleek piece of aluminium lightweight standing between them. Dealt with to the concrete base are a number of metal tiles, etched with the names of hundreds of hundreds of gamer personalities that were energetic at the time. A tool has actually additionally been offered those hunting their very own name.

Created by artist Sigurð& eth; ur Gu & eth; mundsson with input from CCPs own fine art supervisors, the monument was officially turned over to the city, with mayor Jón Gnarr being presented with a ceremonial blade to cut away the twine that expecteded it. After declaring that he “& ldquo; doesn & rsquo; t count on truth & rdquo;, he finished a brief speech with a solitary word: “& ldquo; Beautiful. & rdquo;

With EVE FanFest 2014 opening up tomorrow, it’& rsquo; s most likely that gamers will now be searching those tiles trying to find their very own mark on deep space of New Eden. Mentioning which, it’& rsquo; s regarding time I found my own.

Panesterra Inter-server Sieges are Back!

Panesterra Inter-server Sieges are Back!

The inter-server Panesterra sieges return this Sunday, February 1 starting at 7 PM Server Time! Panesterra was once part of Balaurea, ruled by the ancient Danuar. After a mysterious explosion of Ide in Kaldor, Panesterra was forced into another dimension. Continued Ide experiments in this new zone only brought further destruction across the land, this desolation revealed in its jagged cliffs and precarious bases.

Panesterra is the ultimate siege. No longer will you be fighting against your server's opposing faction. In the Panesterra siege, it is you against another server of either faction. Claim victory for your server faction and together you will all bask in all the glory this exciting new zone has to offer.

Panesterra Inter-server Sieges are Back!

Requirements

The top 1000 players (1-Star Officer and above) of the server faction can apply for the Panesterra Siege when it opens. Only 100 players from each server and faction will be able to participate.

Participation

To participate in the Panesterra Siege, you can apply by speaking with the Panesterra NPC in the Hall of Fame for Asmodians and Walk of Fame for Elyos. Remember space is limited to 100 players per faction per server.

Panesterra Inter-server Sieges are Back!

When the siege starts, each server faction will be placed across four Panesterra zones. Two server factions will be placed on each zone to face off and conquer the vulnerable fortress. The pairing of each server faction will be random.

Panesterra Zone Access

After the Panesterra fortresses have been conquered, the conquering server faction will have access to the fortress and zone. A portal will spawn in the capital city for the appropriate fortress access. Quests for the zone can be picked up from the fortress and zone exploration will be available.

While the zone and fortress can be directly accessed by the server faction that owns it, those who have access to the other fortresses can also move between the zones (with some maneuvering) so be watchful as Panesterra is an open PvP zone where all other factions are your enemy!

Zone access will be redetermined in the subsequent sieges where the fortress controlling server faction will have to defend their hold against a randomly selected server faction. Panesterra fortresses may be reset by the Aion team if need be.

 

Ahserion’s Flight

Immediately after the Pantesterra fortress sieges, Ahserion’s Flight will become available. Beritra has been working on getting Ahserion ascended as the next Dragon Lord. With all the Ide in Panesterra, there is no better place to achieve that. Ahserion’s ascension will take place in Panesterra amidst the all-out war between Daevas.

Panesterra Inter-server Sieges are Back!

This siege is only open to those who hold the Panesterra Conqueror title and the title must be worn to enter. You will have 10 minutes to prep and enter from the portal spawned in the fortress. Here you will battle three other server factions for the title and reward from Ahserion.

While in Ahserion’s Flight, it is possible to eliminate a server faction from the siege entirely. For every server faction, a shield will spawn that must be protected by Daevas at all costs. Protect your shield while attempting to take down your enemies’ shield. The destruction of the shield will result in the immediate removal of the server faction that was supposed to protect it.

The siege will take a total of 70 minutes from start to end. You will still need to protect your shield when you battle with Ahserion. If you defeat Ahserion, he will drop a reward box that includes various items. Collect the reward box as soon as possible because once that timer reaches 70 minutes or your server faction is forced to exit the siege, you will be returned to your bind point with the rewards or not.
