DragonMon: Dragon's Prophet Open Beta Begins

Michael Dunaway
By Michael Dunaway, News Editor

In just a few hours the doors for Runewaker's MMORPG Dragon's Prophet will open up, welcoming thousands of players from both NA and EU regions into the game's open beta. This is a key moment for Dragon's Prophet as many players have been skeptical whether or not the MMO would be ready for the limelight. Mostly due to an overwhelming amount of bugs and localization errors present towards the end of the closed beta.

While the European servers just came up, the NA servers are currently down for maintenance until 5 pm PDT as the publisher brings additional servers online and prepares a patch which should fix many of the issues players have had with Dragon's Prophet over the course of the closed beta. In terms of bug fixes, the patch notes I was able to find weren't terribly informative and only mentioned the game would be receiving a large localization update, multiple quest line fixes, and equipment enhancement fixes. That's quite a lot fixes, albeit delivered vaguely. We will only find out if it was enough once the servers come back online.

The notes also mentioned a few non fix related additions beginning with the brand new starting zone "Puresha", achievements, and guild technology/perks.

Will you be giving Dragon's Prophet a go?

Is it just me but game developers all been dropping that open beta crap to much. Its like a free past when something goes wrong. Oh can't get on server for a week? "Its open beta so its ok" NO its not, Don't come out with a game that isn't finished or polished. Only Reason I can see for it been done is because of money issues (They need it, we go it) or been pushed by a higher power to do it no matter what. If so don't blow smoke up are bums and just tell us straight up.

Show respect to the gamers developers. I would love to just see one come straight up and give it to us. "Ya its open beta but nothing like we wanted. We are been pushed and running low on cash so we are doing best we can do. This is are game and we well do are best to make it great" No bull, no smoke or mirrors, and just honest truth. For that you would have a fan for life.

Not going to fully review DP until I've played it more, but for anyone wondering, dragons are super easy to obtain and there are tons of them. You'll likely be swapping and releasing them as you find ones you like more. You can pick a starting area for your character, either right off the bat or after the painstakingly annoying tutorial, and each area has different types of dragons. I personally recommend the one farthest to the right, because it has flying dragons from the start. And they're pretty badass.

This game isn't as good as I expected it to be and to be honest I have only been able to play a little bit after the tutorial due to the frustrating cutscenes (I haven't figured out how to skip them) and laggy fps when in certain maps.

+ cool taming system, great for ppl who enjoy collecting.
+ Pretty good character customization. I mean u have 6 different ways to shape your character's boobs.
+ action combat. I enjoy action combat as opposed to standing in one place and spam skills.

- low or med end computers will suffer fps lag. This is very very frustrating because your attacks are action based.
- cutscenes are poorly done. The transition between cutscenes makes the game very choppy. On top of that, the voice over doesn't match the character's mouth movements or their gestures.
- the game still has quite a few bugs.

Hopefully they fix the lag and voice over issues that are noticeably bad in open beta. Honestly I can't progress through the game because I cannot fight properly due to the excessive jerky motion of my character.

what disappointing is when launching a game for open beta at least fix issues reported in CB then launch the game .
from the looks of it company wants to make fast money and hurry it up for Open beta .

now the rotten players will come up with exploits hacks bugs with benefits and there you go a Good game flushed down the toilet .

we all know what happens to Never winter and some other previous titles that have suffered due to sheer negligence and then paid a heavy price .

F2p concept is getting worse day by day =( fast money is what companies want not quality gaming.

Open Betas are supposed to be non-polished, you play to polish it, hence the name beta. They game looks just fine from here, it doesnt look like another same old same old rpg, have fun playing rift, Ill be playing this and Tera till it comes out and make this game look so much better over time. Beta testers exist for a reason lol by the time Rift comes out Ill have one more game to play XD. Quit the negativity, ive seen worse. *cough* *raiderz* *cough*

I can't believe a non polished, unfinished game like this is going open beta so soon. The gameplay is a mess, the cutscenes are horribly animated and with subtitles not coinciding with the actual dialog, the story is just the tipical common sense background story for most low originality titles and overall the game doesn't look like a 2013 game and plays worse than 90's mmos the engine is just terrible I can run mmos like TERA and DC Universe Online in high setting but this one I have to set it to low and it still has framerate issues.
I'm going to wait for Rift to transit to F2P in June, it looks awesome and plays awesome.
