The Assassin appears as the 7th class in Dragon Nest

The 7th and newest class for the Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game, Dragon Nest, will be released for South-East Asian servers. Cherry Credits is proud to announce that the Assassin will be made available on the SEA servers together with the Guardian Nest in Solo and Normal mode.

The most notable change in this upcoming Dragon Nest patch will be the introduction of the Assassin to players. A class based on Strength and Agility, the Assassin conceals himself within the shadows to take his enemies’ lives unnoticed, using a scimitar or crook.

In Korea, the launch of the highly anticipated Assassin class has doubled the game’s active player base, due to the character class’s unique design. Each skill has been carefully planned and implemented, so players can explore a whole new battle experience with crisp clear skill graphics. Assassin’s arrival has also brought about a more elaborated storyline which lore-loving players can find out more about through the updated main quests.

Along with the Assassin, the release also introduces the first upgrade path of the Assassin, the Chaser. Having inherited assassination techniques from ancient times, Chasers use concealed shadow weapons to pursue and silently take down enemies. Chasers can go through a second class upgrade to become either a Ripper who focuses on physical ninja skills, or a Raven that specializes in the use of hidden weapons to kill their enemies.

The Assassins are also the first class to introduce two new mechanics to the game: a stealth mechanism which allows players to attack while they are hidden from sight, and also a charging mechanism that allows skill cool-downs to be prolonged to provide greater damage the next time it is used. The game update also introduces a new dungeon, the Guardian’s Nest. Protected by the Fell Guardian, Guardian of the Forest of New Moon, the nest is located at the 8-o’clock direction of the Garden of Time and Space, and is accessible to players of level 70 and above. Players who complete the Guardian’s Nest are expected to get rare materials to craft the epic “Full Moon/New Moon” weapon and armor set. Only the Normal and Solo modes of the Nest will be released for this patch.
