Nexon’s free-to-play MMO Dragon Nest has been flooded with new content since its official North American release last year. New updates are first released in the game’s home country of South Korea and then translated into different languages for deployment worldwide. This gives North American players a sneak peek at what lies ahead, with information on new classes, dungeons, and towns regularly hitting the web.
Dragon Nest‘s anticipated Lotus Marsh update is currently on its way to North America, where it will raise the game’s level cap to 50 and open the Lotus Swamp town. If the Korean version of the patch is any indication of the expansion’s content, it should also bring five new dungeons, the second job advancement, and the Archbishop Nest. Read on for our exclusive reveal of the Lotus Swamp story cinematic and a preview of the update’s bosses.
I first got my grubby gamer paws on Dragon Nest at E3 2011. I stood in line to take my turn asking the devs questions, said no to an offer for free booze (it was early, after all!), and was thrown into an impromptu team with another writer who obviously had no single idea about how to play the game. Back then, I was blown away by how stylized and fun the game was.
It’s still a fun title. If you ever have the hankerin’ for beating up some fantastically animated goblins, minotaurs, and other various dungeon scum, download this free title and jump in. It utilizes basic FPS controls, but you have to actually time attacks thanks to a key hotbar that is packed with interesting abilities. The presence of the hotbar and “standard” powers make Dragon Nest an action game set in a standard MMO-combat universe. If you can get comfortable with the setup, you’ll be in for many hours of wrist-destroying mayhem!
I sat down with Benjamin Boswell, Associate Production Manager for Dragon Nest at Nexon America, to ask him about the game as it reaches its first birthday.

The Acrobat: Dragon Nest’s Resident High Flyer
If you’ve been playing Dragon Nest for a while now, then you’ll have to agree with me when I say that the Acrobat is one of the flashiest classes I’ve seen in a while. Being a 2nd class option for the archer, she inherits the rudimentary skills with the bow. However, it’s the abilities she gains that makes playing her a unique experience. The one thing about the Acrobat is that it doesn’t place emphasis on long range combat as much as the archer or her counterpart, the Bow Master. Instead, she focuses on jumping around. Yes, you heard me; the acrobat is one of, if the most, mobile classes in the game.
This proves to be an edge in battle as well, for acrobats are known to be one of the best combo characters in the game; stringing skills together for maximum damage, even canceling a skill in mid-execution to connect to another. Watching an acrobat fight is art in motion. The one major flaw an acrobat has is that while your offensive output is outstanding, your defense is just sub-par. And the fact that you do not rely on your bow so much only deepens the issue, for you do the most damage when you’re up close and personal. This is why acrobats must always be in motion; using the various skills in her arsenal to whisk herself out of harms way. Knowing when to hit-and run by heart is the way to succeed as an Acrobat, so go on and commence your dance of death!
