[Interview] Dragon's Prophet: It Really Is All About Dragons

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,659MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Dragon's Prophet is a game that has been garnering a lot of new attention lately with its focus on collecting and training dragons. We managed to catch up with Business Development Manager Roy Tang to talk about dragons and how they will fit into the game that bears their name. Check it out and then head to the comments.

MMORPG: In what way will a player’s actions shape the dragons they raise?

Roy Tang: With each dragon already being unique, we took it a step further, and implemented a Lair system where players can truly personalize their dragon.  Once captured, players can place the dragon into the Lair, and train and develop the dragon’s abilities to suit their own playing style and purpose.

    Will someone please drag the developers of DaoC from their new perspective companies and drag their backsides to Runewalkers office and let them see what can be done if you think outside the box.

    It doesnt matter if this game is great or not...they are actually doing something that hasnt been done in an MMO before and basing their game on open gameplay instead of content so funneled even the PvP is themepark.

    Obvi Bless is cooler than DP, but that Dragon scene was an 'on the rails' dragon, not a mount. Not a fair comparison.

    Yeah bless looks cool, but I cant wait for blade n soul

    Bless could be a good game if it didnt have a stupid gender lock system, and an actual character creator. The custormization options in DP are pretty impressive and there a sliders for just about everything, not to mention you are not stuck with only one skin tone (white). In DP you can make your character whatever color you want.

     

    In the TW version I saw a black character with a pink afro, and a green character with an orange mohawk. So yeah I would take DP over Bless just based off the fact that you have freedom with creating your character, which is not the norm for most Asian f2p games. Gender and skin tone locks have always been an immersion breaker for me. Oh you can also change height and body sizes, i mean the custormization is really robust in DP.

    This game looks interesting to me.  One of my favorite all time games was Legend of the Dragoons and I've been wanting a cool dragon game ever since.

    In Horizons you could play as a dragon, had a lair as a house and I think there was a wide open skill system as well as a great crafting system.

     

    Of course that game was 10 years ago or so....just saying.

    Having taken a look at the items you get when buying the founder packs I sense a new pay2win title incoming, just like Runes of Magic, by the same developer, where you had to buy special runestones from the item shop to be able to do end-game content and be competitive in PvP.

    I bought the 90$ VIP pack for this. I am hooked on browser games with pet upgrading systems. So little AAA 3D mmorpg's add this feature. I am so excited. oh and it has housing to boot. Muahhahaaha :D Beta should start in 1.5 weeks. Cya there friends :D
     
    Also, I played Runes oof Magic and I didn't think the game was to bad until they did kind of ruin thier own cash shop prices. If you are talking the game itself, it was fantastic for the time. Really top notch dual sclass system that is still not matched to me personally. So let's be happy that SOE has it now because I actually love this company and its payment models. Gold for all of thier titles at once is an amazing thing so I know my moneys well spent with Sony. I did not think the prices for Founder pack on Neverwinter was a good deal. I do however feel I am getting much more with Sonys deal because I get 9k station points for my purchase and basically get handed 100s of other awesome things for the game. So stoked haha!

    This game looks pretty good and I think a VIP pack might be in order :) It's created by the Runes of Magic folks, but all the rest is under Sony. Based on Sony's history, I would be suprised if it was a pay to win, but will have to see.  I enjoyed Runes of Magic, it had lots of great options and hopefully, they carried some of it, into this game.

    Sounds legit.  Not really enough info out there to get too hyped up yet, but this seems like it will be worth following.
  • Ramonski7Ramonski7 Aurora, ILPosts: 2,656Member Uncommon
    Hell might have to drop 90 bucks on this one since I got tomb raider and bioshock infinity free with my new video card. Damn dragons and non instance housing to boot?! Well not the open world housing I was hoping for but at least a full zone for player housing. Will have to check out the closed beta first though. Good thing I got an invite a couple of days ago!

    A MMO that does something differant is worth praise just for that fact. No idea how it will turn out, but they are trying to give us new gameplay in a one template saturated market.
  • BahamutKaiserBahamutKaiser Hyattsville, MDPosts: 306Member
    Looking forward to this one, I just hope they come up with a comprehensive late game method to inhabit your dragon and play as the dragon with a broad and self sufficient selection of abilities and gameplay from a dragons point of view... Dragons are cool, I really have no interest in the human...

    Rolled the dice on this, got a pack, could be a total bust though.
  • BahamutKaiserBahamutKaiser Hyattsville, MDPosts: 306Member
    Yeah, those packs are a bit gougy... I mean, I don't mind spending $80 on a game, but trying to entice players to spend that much before they've had any hands on time is a bit... desperate. All these beta sales are starting to bother me, I'm down for 20 or 30 dollars once I'm playing the beta... but 20-40-80 dollars before beta is even running?, that's kinda sad.

    it can be argued that gender/skin ton locks actually HELPS immersion. If you actually knew what immersion meant.

     

    How often do you see a black guy in china? Exactly.
