Born for Wars - Warrior of Dragon

The rich backdrop of the game spans across many millennia, from the beginning of the world to the formation of the Nine Provinces, which reside within the Four Realms. Tales of trust, resentment and conflicts intertwine between the two factions, three races and six classes of the game, forging unique experiences for players on an epic scale.

The main draw of the game is its PK-centric (Player Kill) combat system. Players can jump to evade an opponent’s attacks and change battle styles through a weapon-swapping system. Proper use of battle tactics, positioning and precise control are the key to winning battles. Born for the sole purpose to fight wars, Warrior of Dragon features a comprehensive PVP system, delivering the best competitive online MMORPG experience to players around the world.

Assassins–“Your sole purpose: Assassinate Your Opponents”

Assassins are cold-blooded killing machines, lurking in the dark and feeding from its energy. They kill with a single blow, delivering fast and lethal strikes to their enemies and subsequently vanish into darkness. Everything Assassins do is for the sole purpose of destroying their opponents– each and every one of them!

Assassins can use three types of weapons: daggers, claws and wreathed blades:

Assassins who use daggers are skilled killers, delivering powerful and lethal blows in single strikes.

Assassins who use claws are masters of physical abilities, nimble and flexible.

Assassins who use wreathed blades have the best damage dissipation ability, often appearing in front to attract enemy attacks.

Assassins have a special absorbing ability:‘Battle Aura’, which is obtained through charging techniques, and used in finishing moves, greatly increasing its damaging power. Battle Aura is the key to controlling the burst of Finishing Moves.

Lethal Gracefulness– experience the smooth PK styles of Assassins

In Warrior of Dragon, there are no tanks, no DPS (Damage Per Second), and no power-levelers– anyone can dominate the PK fields through skilled controls. Assassins can change their battle styles instantly by swapping between daggers, claws and wreathed blades, adapting to different battle conditions. Daggers dish out high damage, claws refine controls over battles, and wreathed blades excel at absorbing damage. The“Phantom Strike” is the assassin’s final PK technique, delivering powerful blows to opponents with a spectacular and thunderous flair. The flexible battle styles and the heart-pounding Phantom Strike finishing move of the assassin will surely attract the attention of many PVP lovers!
