1. Update - [Frozen Nightmare]




◆ Scenario




World of the Frozen Nightmare




A realm of nightmares that was frozen by the influence of the Frozen World.


The cold only deepened the power of this nightmare created through resentment and obsession within the twisted dream.

Creatures corrupted by an unstable aura wander mindlessly at the end of this nightmare in the Deep Abyss.

May the Goddess's protection reaches those who have fallen into the nightmare's abyss...






◆ Entry Information


•The ‘Frozen Nightmare’ can be accessed through the same gate used to reach the Deep Abyss Nightmare.

◆ Process




<Stage Objective>



 - The nightmare must be purified by eliminating the creatures who have lost their minds to the cold and were corrupted by the unstable aura.






<Frozen Nightmare Process>




-The Frozen Nightmare is blanketed with fog, preventing you from moving in a typical manner. You can jump over the fog using the dream’s last remnants of the Goddess’s power and move to the source of the nightmare.

-Upon breaching the fog and arriving at the source of the nightmare, nightmarish monsters bearing cold energy will appear from their hiding spots in the fog and attempt to drive out the intruders.

-You can only move to the next area after purifying the source of the nightmare by defeating all the cold monsters in your current location.

- The dungeon will be cleared upon defeating each monster in all 4 areas and purifying the Frozen Nightmare.









◆  Event



<Deluge of Dreams>


 - The realm of dreams has been completely taken over by nightmares and is extremely unstable. The stimulated creatures within the nightmares may jump out and attack intruders at any moment.

 - To pacify the deluge of dreams, you must move to the center and fight the monsters pouring in from all sides.








<Abyss Nest>


 - The most powerful creature within the nightmare guards the realm of dreams from the deepest part of the abyss. This creature that protects the nightmare is constantly waiting for a chance

   to remove intruders who have invaded the dream without its permission.

 - You can return to your original location after defeating ‘Frozen Nightmare Golem Montan.’








<Star of the Goddess>

[Developer's Note]



How are you?

This is Dragon Nest Developer S.

Today I would like to inform heroes about the recent approach we have taken for improving Skill Dragon Jade and character balancing.


Skill Dragon Jade



‘Skill Dragon Jade’ was introduced a long time ago, but there are still some types of Skill Dragon Jade that players don’t find it worthwhile to invest in.

In order to address this issue, we have made partial improvements to Skill Dragon Jade with poor performance specifications, as well as the skills they enhance.




We made these modifications with a focus on narrowing the gap existing between the ‘Dreamy/Blood Moon/Verdure Dragon Jade’ used by a single class.

As Skill Dragon Jade balancing is closely related to the basic performance of the character, we will compensate for any shortcomings with a character balancing patch.


In addition, we are preparing a variety of ways to use each Skill Dragon Jade.

We will prepare the agenda so that you can check it as soon as possible.




Character Balance

A number of balancing patches will be applied in the near future.

There are two things that are at the core of the balancing agenda:




1. Basic damage balancing

2. Minimizing Cooldown decrease/recovery mechanisms




Item 1 addresses most balancing issues and is carried out by improving specifications.


Item 2 is mainly about addressing balancing issues with some classes such as Crusader, Black Mara, Blade Dancer, and Spirit Dancer.

We are working on trimming down this part because we feel some difficultly with providing a mechanism by which the cooldown of all main skills is recovered/reduced in a short cycle within a meta where skills are enhanced with items.

This problem should have been improved after a thorough review when Skill Dragon Jade was launched, but there were many shortcomings at the time that prevented us from doing so.

In particular, when overbalancing issues emerged, such as those involving Ruina and Smasher, we generally responded by simply lowering skill specifications.

In the future, we will prepare character balancing patches that will be received as an improvement in gameplay as opposed to a simple downgrade/increase of specifications.





We are planning on releasing two character-related patches, one minor and one major, between February and March.

We will continue to strive to provide quality content to players.

Thank you always.
