Dragon Nest In-Game Event

Ends on 21 Aug 2011

Join in to Win! Over $3000 in Prizes!

An enchanted world. Hope struggles against darkness. Fate lies with YOU.

Welcome to Dragon Nest - Nexon's latest free-to-play fantasy MMORPG. You're about to enter a fantastic world filled with magic, wonder, hideous monsters, evil villains, and endless adventure. Dragon Nest has real time non-targeting combat, up to 16 player PvP, and an interactive Marketplace.

Playing Dragon Nest is too much fun to pass up, so The Escapist Staff has created an in-game guild and is inviting everyone to join. Nexon has also sweetened the pot by providing 3 limited edition Dragon Nest branded plush poochums to give away, plus six Amazon Gift Cards!! These plushies were a hot item at E3 this year, so unless you were lucky enough to grab one then, this is the only way to get your paws on one now. Our goal in-game is to have the largest guild on the server, so let's see what we can do!

Staff members Nasrin, sOosleepie, encaen and more will be in-game between 12pm to 5pm EDT, Wednesday through Friday this week to hang out with the community and help spread the destruction. See below for exact schedules.
