Update: The game is currently undergoing massive deflation of in the Trading House. Although some of the items here are still virtually alright to sell in bulk, there are some that have depreciated in value. There are also new items added into the game that are of high value (premium labyss, shiny jewelry fragment, hardened labyss, etc.), but I will not be updating the guide for it any time soon due to the unstable economy of the game as consequence of DNSEA’s new content and in-game events (anniversary).
In Dragon Nest SEA, the in-game currency is everything. A lot of things may have changed in the game, but this fact remains the same and will be until the final days of Lagendia. There are a number of ways to get by in the game without spending real-life money yet, but you need to dedicate an ample amount of time in order to pull this off. Especially after the server hit inflation in the previous level cap, there is no denying that every bit of time you put into the game should be worth it.
I. On Leveling and Equipment Farming
Most gold-generating content are only accessible once you hit level 90 and above, so by all means max your character right away. EXP-wise, the curve has been made considerably bearable for new players, so this shouldn’t be a problem at all.
- Leveling to 93 (Red Waste in master mode) will give you access to level 90 jades, accessories, enhancement heraldry, and talisman. Keep the ones that your class needs.
- Take the superior alteums and alliance gifts.
- The rare-grade equipment (blue) is definitely an alternative if you don’t have anything to begin with.
It’s not really a requirement, but it will make things a little bit easier for you if you join a guild that is willing to help you get a head start. There are guilds who would bring new players to nests for their equipment needs.
Just a small update for everyone in Dragon Nest SEA, but the upcoming Assassin class will be released this March 2014! Addison Kang himself changed his Facebook cover photo and updated his status to, “I’m excited -smiley-” on the same night. Details on the other updates with the patch is yet to be released, but we’ll be seeing more of that this month.
Assassin was released in Dragon Nest Korea in conjunction with the Return of the King patch, or more popularly known as the Level 70 Cap, which introduced various updates in the equipment building, new EX and passive skills, and the class. In June of last year, its two specializations were released separately, the first one being Chaser specializing into Ripper and Raven followed by the Bringer specializing to Light Fury and Abyss Walker several months after its prior release. The class is a physical, elemental-based class (light, dark, and fire) and both paths heavily focuses on either DPS or support role. It has gained popularity in the senior servers such as Dragon Nest China and Japan, but its fate here in Dragon Nest SEA is yet to be seen!
Which class are you going for?
With the Return of the King or Destruction of Saint Haven patch knocking on our doorsteps, as what our very own Addison Kang teased on his official Facebook account, we are going to expect a lot of changes coming our way. There is the new Saint Haven after it was ruined by the Black Dragon. There are the changes on dismantling items. Upcoming skill balancing and new passive skills. And of course, the so-called Dragon Jade System. This update has got to be the biggest hurdle to new and blind players. Fret not as this guide will be solely dedicated on the new system, and what will you be expecting from this feat.
I. The New System
It is a new system, but for what, exactly? It’s for our characters’ equipment building. Yes, suffix-potential system is going to be shelved forever and be replaced by this new system. If we use pacultas essences, mutants, powders, crystals to suffix our equipment to our liking and needs, and use agate, crystal, and diamond codes to acquire the potential of our dreams, we use dragon jades for building our stats instead. Yes, that also means that pacultas and codes will be useless once the new system is out and complete. Do take note that equipment with suffix and potential can still make use of the codes and suffix materials (exchanged from the Goddess Breath Store). The new ones will automatically be under the new system.
All equipment that will obtained during the new level cap will be under the new system. You may still use your old equipment that has suffix and potential, of course, but it will be clearly indicated that it is from the old, retired system.
SET SAIL! A brand new content has been released with the Exploring A New Adventure patch in the form of an uber fun minigame, and rewards are to be given to explorers who have successfully tread with Loffy. Explore Lagendia like never before, in the search for golden keys and treasure chests, with the help of this guide dedicated to everything that you need to know.
A new icon can be found above your hotkey panel that will open the exploration minigame UI. It contains all the basic information you need about the game as a whole, a weekly checklist for more rewards, and ranking boards (one for personal, player-based performance on the number of keys collected, the other for guild accumulated keys). Possible rewards are also listed, as well as the number of possible times you can do the game, which is twice a day. The game will start once you click Enter.
The minigame is simple. Much like the common dice games you are familiar to out there, Lagendia Continent Exploration is not that different. You are given a dice to roll on a board that contains several stages you have to complete. This is a solo dungeon, so you get to enjoy the loots to yourself.
With the update just around the corner for the newest stat-boosting system in the form of talisman, let me explain to you what exactly is this system and what direct impact does it have to your whole gaming experience. Trust me, receiving a separate tab from your character’s user-interface says a lot that this system is indeed something you might wanna take seriously, because whether you like it or not, you will be needing all the possible boost you need in the game, both stat-wise or just in the other aspects.
TL;DR? Here is a screenshot of the system introduction from DNSEA.
AN ADDITIONAL SYSTEM
Let’s make it simple here. Talismans are actually a new type of equipment introduced in the game. Yes, it receives a separate interface from heraldries, and much like them, they boost your stats. Unlike heraldries, though, talismans have no percentage gain whatsoever, but the catch can be found in its UI itself. It boosts a specific stat (e.g. Str, Int, Agi, Vit, physical attack, magic attack, etc.) relative to its position in the interface.
