Metin2: Gameforge releases “The Dark Dragons” expansion

Largest Metin2 update to date brings additional regions, new monsters, dragon stone alchemy and a level cap increase to 105

Karlsruhe, 26.02.2013 – “The Dark Dragons” expansion leads players of successful MMO Metin2 onto a secretive island, with new creatures, missions and rewards. The level cap is being increased to 105 and with the mysterious dragon stone alchemy process, Metin2’s heroes will become more powerful than ever before.

Dark Dragon Rock

Players from level 90 can satisfy their explorative desires in the challenging new areas: Cape Dragon Fire, Gautama Cliff, Thunder Mountains and Nephrite Bay. These can all be found on the legendary island of Dark Dragon Rock. New monsters such as the fish-like creatures of the Tritonic Army or the winged beasts of the Manticore race lurk there in wait. Courage and fighting spirit are called for in order to survive against these fearsome creatures and their dangerous leaders.

However, the additional regions contain many more challenges and dangers. For example, new, even more dangerous Metin stones are hailing down on the island. These have to be destroyed as quickly as possible to prevent their dark influence on the kingdom. Brave heroes who have risen to the new missions will receive plentiful and powerful weapons and armor as a reward.

Dragon Stone Alchemy and maximum level increased to 105

So that the journey to Dark Dragon Rock has no sudden end, it is now possible to level game characters up to level 105. With the help of the mysterious dragon stone alchemy, players can produce powerful dragon stones from looted dragon stone shards, which then lend them unimagined powers. Dragon stones originate from the heart and soul of an elemental dragon and give the bearer bonuses on hit or mana points, as well as effective resistances against the elements of fire, ice, earth, wind, lightning and darkness. From level 30, characters have the possibility to assemble two different sets from these magical precious stones: heaven and earth. Dragon stones can be refined by multiple levels in order to increase their effects.

The beginning of a new era

“The Dark Dragons” update is the prelude to further exciting adventures in the world of Metin2. It will in future be expanded in regular intervals with additional content.
