Dragon Nest unleashes Theater of War
The Theater of War update has arrived for players of Dragon Nest.
The update tunes PvP by improving Ghoul Mode, adding new skills, items, and achievements, and adding three new game modes: Protect-the-Captain, where players must work to protect their team leader while taking out the opposing team’s leader; free-for-all, a sixteen player deathmatch; and a three-on-three Ladder Mode.
Also new in the update are two new dungeons: Chaos Rift Kamala (24+, Abyss Mode) and Chaos Rift Viera (32+, Abyss Mode), both of which shift layouts every time a player enters. Dragon Eggs may now be purchased from the Dragon Vault with a chance of obtaining the Royal Crimson Stallion, a new mount (and the first for Dragon Nest) which grants 70% bonus speed in town and fields.
Dragon Nest is published by Nexon, which also publishes Vindictus and Mabinogi.

The “Theater of War” Comes to Dragon Nest
New PvP content, dungeons, Black Friday deals arrive this week
Nexon is adding new player versus player (PvP) game modes and upgrades to Dragon Nest today as part of a new content update, “Theater of War.” The update for its popular online action RPG also includes two challenging new dungeons for high level players and a host of other game improvements.
New fighting styles make their debut on the PvP front today, and the game’s classic PvP modes are getting a makeover as well. In the new Protect-the-Captain game mode, players must work together as a team to safeguard their team captain while pressing the offensive to eliminate the opposing team’s leader. Teamwork, coordination, feints and ruses are the tools necessary for the cunning team to win the day.
Also new to PvP is the free-for-all mode, where up to 16 players are cut loose to battle each other in a bloodthirsty brawl for supremacy. Players can fight, or they can fly, but they can’t hide forever in this fast-paced game mode. Additionally, a new three-on-three Ladder Mode has been added, wherein teams of three players face off against each other. The popular Ghoul Mode, introduced with last month’s Halloween update, is receiving a number of improvements. Players can now turn into mummy ghouls and access new ghoul skills, items and achievements. Finally, medals and EXP will be awarded should players wish to consume their power bar to do so.
Two new dungeons are opening up today with the “Theater of War” update. Located in the Garden of Eternity, Chaos Rift Kamala is a new dungeon for level 24 players and above. Playable only on Abyss Mode, the game’s highest difficulty level, players are encouraged to take a friend (or few) along. Chaos Rift Viera is another new dungeon playable on Abyss Mode for players at the current level cap of 32. Unlike other dungeons, the layout in these two new dungeons changes every time a player enters presenting a fresh experience each time.
Additionally, players can now purchase Dragon Eggs (Gachapon) from the Dragon Vault, and each egg has a chance of containing a Royal Crimson Stallion, the game’s first mount. Players will be the envy of their peers as they strut through town on top of this magnificent beast, which also grants a 70 percent movement speed bonus in town and fields.
It wouldn’t be a proper Thanksgiving without Black Friday deals, and Dragon Nest players will have a slew of deals to look forward to beginning Friday, Nov. 25. For every 500,000 dungeons that Dragon Nest players collectively complete from now until Friday, Nexon will unveil a new Black Friday promotion on the game’s website.
