Dragon Nest | News - Complete Update Notes - Zakad's Awakening


Halloween is upon us, and the terror of terrors--the Desert Dragon--is ready to give Altera the ultimate chill. Sealed by Gerrant and sought by lustre looters, the Desert Dragon is finally stirring from her long slumber... and she's roaring for vengeance. A slew of new gear, events, and Dragon Vault items have arrived to help you defend Altera against its latest threat!

The Desert Dragon Nest

- Rewards:

The False Stronghold

Most of your favorite Lv. 50 (and under) nests have been upgraded to Lv. 60!

With the Desert Dragon portal now open, old foes clamor to keep your attention. Since they've all received updated loot tables, they'll probably succeed. The catch? Each nest is only open on a certain day of the week!

- Recommended level: 60 and above
- Portal location: Garden of Eternity (Level 60.)

- Day each nest can be entered:
- Monday: Cerberus Nest (Lv. 60)
- Tuesday: Manticore Nest (Lv. 60)
- Wednesday: Apocalypse Nest (Lv. 60)
- Thursday: Archbishop Nest (Lv. 60)
- Friday: Titan Nest (Lv. 60)

- Rewards:
- Lv. 60 epic weapons, armor, and sparks
- Special potions that can only be used in the Desert Dragon Nest

Are these monsters as tough as you remember? Challenge them and find out.

Desert Dragon Clear Event

The Desert Dragon's the most dangerous opponent to date, so we're showering the first party brave enough--and skilled enough--to clear her nest with rich rewards! Gather your friends and guildies, then venture into Zakad's desolate home.

- Be the first party to defeat the Desert Dragon and win amazing items!

Halloween Events

Start carvin' those pumpkins and lightin' those jack-o-lanterns, because the Fete of All Flesh has returned!
