Introducing Dragonica’s Combat– the Warrior and the Magician

Dragonica is the brand new free arcade-style 3D side-scrolling MMORPG. It will be available to download across Europe this Spring from the www.gpotato.eu gaming portal. As the gPotato team prepares for the game’s launch in Europe, we are proud to release information on the dynamic combo-based combat system and take a look at the Warrior and Magician special moves.

The warrior is agile and fearless, and can quickly slash in a variety of directions as he circles around his opponents. Warriors can knock over multiple opponents, slash upwards sending them skyward, jump up and combo them in the air before smashing them into the ground. When a warrior needs a bit of space, they can throw their sword to stop an enemy advance, or catch multiple enemies in a whirlwind of sword hits. Is your enemy down but not out? Pull out one of three giant hammers to finish them off. As Warriors progress, they can develop into a Gladiator or a Knight.

Gladiators throw away their shield and focus on large, two-handed swords. Smash your sword against the ground and enemies tumble as the ground is shaken underneath, put on a bears head to boost your strength or focus on improving your sword mastery. A yellow kung fu fighter can help deal with pesky enemies in a variety of ways. Knights use a one handed sword but have the benefit of a shield. They can unleash a brand new range of attacks including aerial smackdowns, hammer hits in the air and dropping 1000 ton weights to squash their enemies. Pulling out a broomstick, they can quickly take out the toughest of enemies. Both can also use a variety of skills to temporary boost their damage and defensive skills.

The Magician is a ranged fighter who can handle themselves in a close combat fight. A Magician can summon a meteor to deal massive damage to multiple enemies, or launch a devastating ground explosion throwing opponents into the air. They can flip fallen foes into the air before frying them in a bolt of lightning. For larger enemies, they can pull out a cannon and fire a huge projectile into a group of opponents. Magicians are also healers, able to heal their party and their own health while in combat, making them an essential part of any team. As Magicians progress,they can choose to be a Monk or a Battlemage.

Monks have continued developing their skills as healers. They can summon a nurse to heal your party or themselves and resurrect fallen comrades. They have a host of new tricks up their sleeves with flaming orbs protecting them, a spell to turn multiple opponents into frogs, and a defensive shield that party members can recover in. Battlemages really like dealing damage, so they are a welcome addition to any party in Dragonica. They can summon a fireball to slowly move through a crowd of enemies unleashing damage, call a tornado to suck them off their feet, and unleash a blizzard on them. They can also release a poisonous cloud or rain destruction on their foes with ten missiles.
