    With the closure of Dragon's Prophet Europe, and Savage Hunt: Dragon's Prophet made earlier today, I felt it was necessary to say at least something in regards to the future of the server.

    We launched this server in early 2017, and are going strongly into our fourth year running the server. In the last year alone we have made many changes to our server and are still planning on making more changes as we figure out how to do them. Of the things we have changed the most noticeable is the release of unreleased Dragon's (Carnelian Warden, Obsidian Thunder, Midnight Massacre, and Ice Spire) and the addition of our own custom textures to the game (Galactic Storm, Nyssilth the Toxic Tyrant, and Skitterjuice). Outside of releasing unreleased Dragons and our own re-textures, we have been hard at work at fixing bugs and overhauling existing mechanics such as the dragons that spawn in Dungeons.

    Regarding what we are currently working on, it is still much the same as what was mentioned in the last development update. We're still trying to resolve some issues with the source code so that we can make a stable release which would allow us to focus on optimization, feature enhancement and also new mechanics or quality of life improvements. We are still stuck on overhauling Scaleform (which falls under optimization), but due to how ingrained it is in the game and how wonky it can be, it is also preventing us from releasing a stable update. Outside of source code development we have been researching things such as increasing the base value for wild caught Dragon attribute values, and also how to create items that will allow you to max out the attribute values, or change the bonus attribute of your Dragon.

    Something that has changed since the last update however is the fact that we have made some adjustments to our tool to start supporting more languages. With the closure of Dragon's Prophet Taiwan, and the end of life of Dragon's Prophet as a product from Runewaker we have begun to pick up some of the Taiwanese and players from other parts of Asia, as well as more people from Europe. We are currently in the process of testing out a self-hosted translation platform, so that players can help to suggest translations for missing strings in game, but it will take some time to figure out all the settings.

    The likelihood of us shutting down the server any time in the near future is unlikely, and unless it comes to the point that we cannot financially support the server we will not be shutting it down any time soon.

    Hello there! I just registered here, because I just saw info about this server under main post of Savage Hunt on FB about shutting down the game.
    I play DP since closed beta, so many years, I really loved this game. My favourite MMO ever, I spend so many nice moments with friends playing this. But I stopped because game wasn't develop anymore.
    Shutting down official servers is very good moment and opportunity to gain a lot of new members for your server, but I think it will be much more effective, if you allow transfer character from DP.
    Would you consider it?

    We cannot access character data from other servers, so it is not something we can offer. We do offer a character pack for all characters which will boost your character to 60, give it equipment for that level, and also include a Marketplace Traditional Fabled Ancient. It really does not take that long to get back to where you were on EU here because we have 3x Exp, and 3x Drops.

    The sheer amount of people coming over from EU is crazy lol. Hopefully now that there aren't 3 dp servers only one the player base will be much better.
    So far I like this one even better than EU. It's nice to see the kindred compass not permanently disabled like it was on EU for what... 2+ years? XD

    If it was a custom costume, you can probably get it fairly quickly; if it is one of the Alentia, Inartia or Wintertide ones you can drop it with a single person, and without a group. If it was a Marketplace costume, we do not remove them and they're always available for players.

    As far as your Dragon, we've changed Dragon spawns so each dungeon has its own which you can see here: Guide - Updated - 3/2020 | Dungeon Ancient Location, Tips Farming Guide

    The Kindred Compass has the Adept Dragon Gacha, which will reward you a Dragon family/model gacha which contains most if not all Dragons, so if depending on the model or the family you can get your Dragon again for free. We give the same gacha out on Saturday at 3PM PST during the GM event.

    Yeah I haven't really had much time to breathe much in two days now with everything going on, and this Friday is a diamond sale.

    EDIT: So as to not make people feel bad for buying early going to enable one now.

    It's going up two days early so that people don't feel as if they made a mistake; I'll just have to manually re-imburse everyone who has bought over the last day the Diamonds they would have purchased.

    Welcome to the server, hopefully you enjoy it here.

    As far as using Google Translate goes, it's fine as I'm mostly use to it as we have people all over the world playing.

    Thank vou

    but I already have a problem. as a new player many get an item with which you can quickly get to lvl 60, I did not get such a thing.
    do I need to create a new char , or reload the game ?

    Make sure that you've run the launcher and fully updated the game; you will then get an item called "Adept Starter Pack" in your marketplace bag, which you will need to open.
