Dragon Project features plenty of game modes to keep every type of player excited.
Here’s a quick overview so you won’t miss out on the fun!
Like all RPGs, there are Story Missions. Story Missions are assigned to you by Pamela and they take you through the main storyline of the game.
Usually, you’ll be tasked to collect a particular material (by killing a specific monster), or to battle Behemoths. Completing missions will earn you Gems, Gold and EXP (which will help you level up).
There are also Side Missions. These are usually assigned to you by someone else other than Pamela and they are rather straightforward: go to this area to kill this monster and collect a certain amount of specific material.
Daily and Weekly Missions
Just like their names suggest, these are missions that you have to complete within the day, or within the week. These missions are not difficult—they are usually about battling Behemoths, using a particular weapon or strengthening a weapon.
For Daily Missions, you are usually rewarded with potions or Magi materials, as well as EXP. Weekly Missions are worth spending time on because you’ll be rewarded with Summon Tickets. You can use them to Summon Behemoths, which will get you the materials you need to forge equipment. Continue reading on to find out more about Behemoth quests.
Quests are basically multiplayer co-op battles where 4 Hunters fight against 1 Behemoth (aka boss monster). To join a Behemoth Quest, just walk towards Axel in Town.
Behemoth Quests are a major part in the game, because it is how Hunters get new and better equipment. Strong Behemoths give you strong weapons.
There are 3 types of Behemoth Quests: Available Quests, My Quests, Shadow Quests.
These are open quests hosted by other Hunters. (Remember, each Behemoth battle needs 4 Hunters.) By participating, you will earn materials to enhance equipment, but you will probably not earn Tablets (unless you are really lucky), which is essential for forging equipment.
These are Quests that you can host, because you managed to summon a particular Behemoth. Because you are the host, you will get a Tablet when you defeat the Behemoth. Tablets are valuable because you need them to forge a new piece of weapon or armor.
For example, if you summon and defeat the SS Behemoth Paradise Houran, you’ll get the Paradise Houran Tablet. You can choose to use the Tablet + Spear Crystal to forge the SS Dawn’s Dance (Spear), or use the Tablet + Headgear Crystal to forge the SS Dawn’s Head Piece (Headgear), or use the Tablet + Body Armor Crystal to forge the SS Dawn’s Armor (Body Armor), etc.
This also means that if you wish to forge the complete SS Dawn Set, you will need to summon and defeat SS Behemoth Paradise Houran five times.
These are when you battle Shadow versions of the Behemoth (e.g. Shadow Felnarog instead of Deus Felnarog).
Doing Shadow Quests will earn you the materials needed to enhance (level up) your equipment, but not those that you need to forge the equipment (e.g. Tablet).
Tip: Use Luck Potions to double the amount of materials dropped!
Events are game modes that are released for a limited time only.
The gameplay for Story Events is similar to the main Story Missions, but it is on a different map. Think of it as Hunters travelling to a different part of the Kingdom for a special work assignment.
If you’re into the story part of the game, you’ll enjoying learning more about the different characters. If you’re into getting unique equipment, you’ll love the opportunity to battle new Behemoths and obtain event-specific equipment (which always looks great).
Expedition is a really exciting game mode that really puts your teamwork to the test. To participate, you must form an expedition party with 3 other Hunters. (Do so with your friends, or be grouped randomly with other Hunters.) Your party will be given an expedition map and you’ll have to work together to hunt down and defeat a Behemoth within the time limit.
Expeditions are great because they give you exclusive materials that are needed to evolve SS equipment—so that you can wield the most powerful weapons around.
Material Events have a singular purpose—obtain materials from a specific A- or B-ranked Behemoth. Every weekday, you’ll see Material Events for different Behemoths. (e.g. Frogrid on Mondays, Fu Fu on Tuesdays, etc.)
These events are great for people who want to focus their efforts on collecting materials to enhance equipment forged from these Behemoths.
These are just the events that are currently available. A little dragon told us that there are plenty more events to come…
