Combat is similar to the ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' series, where even normal attacks will (barring glitches or lag) hit everything the animation connects with and enemy attacks can be dodged on sight. Skills are huge, devastating and gorgeously animated especially for the spellcasting classes. Despite all the power at the players' disposal caution is still necessary as ''all'' enemies have at least one attack than can stagger or launch the PlayerCharacter and even {{Mooks}} have a nasty habit of [[GangUpOnTheHuman cooperating to juggle or 'stun-lock' the player to death.]] Most bosses are usually much larger than the {{Player Character}}s, much more resistant to interruption and have proportionally more massive attacks. They also have a horrifying tendency to show up in the same capacity as a DegradedBoss later on -- only ''without'' the degradation!

* BribingYourWayToVictory: The standard Nexon formula of fancy costumes that give extra stat bonuses. As with other Nexon [=MMO=]s the perks have been growing with each update but the game's demanding mechanics require skill from even the most monumentally geared players.

Now that the game is published by Eyedentity themselves, this trope is noticeably much more watered down.



* CriticalHit: There's a stat to increase chances of this, then there are sharpshooter skills that give either double the critical chance.... or give a ''[[OhCrap 100% chance]]'' of critical hits for 13 seconds... and also juggles the target(s) [[CycleOfHurting with each shot.]] And then there's the sharpshooter skill that increases the whole party's critical by ''600 percent'' for a few seconds. OhCrap indeed...

* CriticalHit: There's a stat to increase chances of this, then there are sharpshooter and the Archer (and the Assassin to a lesser extent) specializes in this trope a ''lot''. She has two skills that give either double the which boost critical chance.... or give hit rate, one that ''maxes it out'' for around 30 seconds, and a ''[[OhCrap 100% chance]]'' of 10% boost for 6 minutes. The Sniper's first skill, Lucky Shot, gives a fairly high chance to nearly ''double'' critical hits for 13 seconds... and also juggles the target(s) [[CycleOfHurting with each shot.]] And then there's the sharpshooter skill that increases the whole party's critical by ''600 percent'' for a few seconds. OhCrap indeed...hit damage.



** At the end of the level 32 to 40 main questline, your character will grab a heavy metal pole and swing it wildly [[spoiler: at the Sea Dragon's mouth to free Gerrant.]] Fine if you are a Warrior or Cleric, but watching a [[SquishyWizard weak Sorceress]] or [[GlassCannon Archer]] do it? Wow.

** The Engineer gets two skills; Make it rain, which a bomb is thrown into the air and the explosions rains missiles, and Chemical Missile, which is what the name implies.

* BigBadWannabe: Elena the Dark Elf Queen attacks Carderock Pass at least two times with an army of monsters, and seems to consider herself TheRival to [[ActionGirl Argenta]]. Ironically, she considers Elena little more than a nuisance. To put things in perspective, the (presumably) true BigBad has administered several {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s to both Argenta and the player character, while Elena is ultimately defeated by a [[spoiler:hobgoblin and a poochum after he mutates the former's family]].

''[[http://dragonnest.com]]'' is a free-to-play MMORPG developed and published by Eyedentity Games. In ''Dragon Nest'', players pick one of nine classes (which can specialize at higher levels) and fight through hordes of standard and not-so-standard fantasy nasties in a cutesy, SuperDeformed world. The game has an AlwaysOverTheShoulder camera (with the ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' angle more akin to [=MMO=] fighters like ''VideoGame/S4League'' rather than the traditional position in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' -- era {{MMORPG}}s) and plays like a ThirdPersonShooter with a focus on short-to-middle-range combat and melee.

** The Machina is a LightningBruiser CatGirl who wields a large metal claw and specializes in rushing enemies down. Many of her skills can be linked with one another, and [[DynamicEntry often involve jumping straight into the fray and bashing enemies left and right.]] She also has a variety of defensive buffs to aid her and her allies.



* {{Jerkass}}: There are quite a ''lot'' of {{NPC}}s who are rude and unpleasant to the player character, (mainly all of the Sorceresses, except for [[NiceGirl Stella (though she's a downplayed example) and Tara]]) and most of them [[UngratefulBastard aren't too grateful for you helping them.]]
** One of the airship ticket handlers, Sorenne, is ''very'' unpleasant to everyone she meets. Justified, however, as she's poor and she needs the money for her family, but they no longer let her charge for tickets.

She only acts like this in the NA version however, she's quite kind in the SEA version.
