What's new

Amaguq is a new Dragon by @Aiden based off of Zios, though some of the armor has been removed. The name comes from the Inuit god of the same name as it is a wolf god, and also the god of Tricksters. This originally started as an act of science to prepare the model for another concept, but ended up being completed as it's own release. Players who have Amaguq will get the title "The Wolf of Winter". This Dragon will also come with the Adept Dragon Tamer skill. If you are interested in...
Xaphan is a continuation of the theme we used for Samael where we would select certain models and design them around either a fallen angel or demon. In this specific case we chose Xaphan, the fallen angel who chose to light Heaven on fire before his fall. For future Dragons in this series we may not stick to the same names just so we have a bit more flexibility, as finding one that fits each model is not fun. Players who have Xaphan will get the title "Desecrater of Heaven". This Dragon...

Development Update 5 Year Anniversary Update

There isn't much new from the last update other than that we tracked down and resolved the root cause(s) for item stat generation for normal gear and dragon gear. We are currently weighing the pros and cons of overhauling the way that the Dragon's Prophet client accesses files and how the data system works; this is something that needs to be done before public testing can begin as it would require a whole new client entirely as the packed data itself would become obsolete. The con is...
Because I was busy working out bugs on the large patch that is coming soon, I completely forgot to enable the Chinese New Year and Valentine event. I have enabled them now, but they will not be active until next Monday after maintenance and I will run the noodle event for two weeks for the delay (even though I have to manually start the stupid dragons). We have been holding off on doing any large updates as all of the updates for the beta branch will break compatibility with the current...
Amora is the pink valentine pillow that we have been getting requests for for years. Originally we had planned to overhaul the base texture to make it closer to the Whirlmoon texture, but due to time constraints we are going to look at doing that later this year. Players who have Amora will get the title "Osiran Matchmaker". This Dragon will also come with the Adept Dragon Tamer skill. Thanks to @Heroine for help with the compendium. If you are interested in getting early previews on what...
Sha Ting is the final of the four new Chiense Dragons that are being added to Dragon's Prophet. This dragon was a byproduct of @Aiden experimenting and we ended up really liking the direction it was going, and decided to refine it and add it to the game. Sha Ting originally was going to be a ocean/sea concept, but @Compeador pointed out that a thunder/lightning/storm concept would fit it better. Players who have Sha Ting will get the title "Eye of the Storm". This Dragon will also come with...
Luo Yi is the third of the four new Chinese Dragons that are coming to Dragon's Prophet. This is another original concept by @Vipera for the skateboard merchandise and was designed with being the opposite of Yan Yu, the Cosmic Emperor. Where Yan Yu represents deep space and the night sky, Luo Yi represents the transitions between sunrise and sunset. Players who have Luo Yi will get the title "The Legend of the Twilight". This Dragon will also come with the Adept Dragon Tamer skill. Thanks...
Ao Pu is the second of the four new Chinese Dragons that are coming to Dragon's Prophet. This is an original concept of @Aiden that was done to be opposite of Chi Fu and was meant to have a theme of holiness, light and purity. This also served as a test for playing around with making opalescent textures that play well with Dragon's Prophet graphics. The colors used for the emissive layer are all borrowed from @Annimora and her Crystalline Chaos submission Opal Wind. Players who have Ao Pu...
Chi Fu is the first of the four new Chinese Dragons that are coming to Dragon's Prophet. The original concept was done by @Vipera for the skateboard merchandise and then textured by @Aiden. This dragon uses the same base as Yan Yu and Zuo Ran and is meant to take the place of the black and red Chinese Dragon from Russia that we have still been unable to find. Thematically it is a Dragon that is in opposition to Ao Pu, the Karmic Judge and is meant to represent evil and negativity. We also...
