Sony Online Entertainment and Runewalker have launched a fairly extensive new update for their dragon-themed MMO, Dragon's Prophet. It includes a celebration of the Chinese New Year - we're on the Year of the Horse now - with rare capturable Eastern Dragons in each of the zones. The big add, though, is the new zone, Olandra.
Adventure through Dragon's Prophet newest zone - Olandra
Olandra adds another dimension to the fantasy MMOPRG, introducing the game's first underwater dungeon, Shrine of Handras. This Legendary Dungeon features five new bosses with mechanics never-before-seen in Dragon's Prophet, deadly aqua monsters and whirlpools, and frequent Stone Shards drops, which give access to rare and powerful weapons. In addition to ruthless bosses and new dragons, with this zone, players will see a level cap increase from 90 to 94.
Northeast of Alentia, in the northernmost explored region in Auratia, lays Olandra. Though a seemingly calm region with blue skies and clear weather -- a welcomed environment for adventurers who have recently braved the harsh environments of Wintertide and Alentia -- Olandra is hiding a dark secret. Years ago, a powerful skeletal dragon known as Handras the Indigo Fog left behind crystals infused with his power. Now, some of Olandra's most corrupted have obtained the crystals and are trying to eradicate all dragons from Auratia.
Treasure Hunts, Mounted Combat and Class System Updates
Along with entry to Olandra, starting today, Dragon's Prophet players will be able participate in Treasure Hunting events. Once per week, players can locate Traveling Merchants throughout the game and follow various clues and puzzles to discover hidden treasure and rewards.
Adjustments to enhance and bring more depth to the class system have also been implemented, and mounted combat has been expanded beyond PvP and is now available in the dungeons as well.
Capture Eastern Dragons to Celebrate Chinese New Year
It's the Year of the Horse, and players can celebrate the Chinese New Year with the all-new Chinese Patrol Dragon Event. From today until Feb. 13, 2014, a different and rare capturable Eastern Dragon will appear in each of the zones to celebrate the New Year. The dragons will respawn only once every couple hours, so players need to be on their guard if they want to capture the elusive beasts.
