One of the issue that players are complaining in Dragon Nest is that the game is overrun by female character. As we know it, the last update brought to us by the developer is yet another female class called the Kali. So there's the Academic, Sorceress, Archer and Kali which are female, and there's Cleric and Swordmaster.. So the class ratio is 4:2. That is totally unfair for boys right? Well, it's not really an issue though.hehe. I'm just making a crappy intro for this post.haha.
Anyway, let's cut that nonsense and into the good news. Later this day, I have found out that there will be a 7th class for the game and in fact, it has been already released in Dragon Nest China, I think (need further investigation on this). But the fact is.... THERE WILL BE A NEW CLASS AND IT IS INDEED MANLY.
The new class in Dragon Nest will be the Assassin.. Yes! you heard me right... AN ASSASSIN! Probably, at first thought, you will expect that this dude will be a ninja-like character which will have swift movement, awesome combos and all that Assassin goodness. Well, those expectation MAY come true!
Below are the informations I have gathered so far regarding this class. I will bring you more news about this class soon but for now, let's just savor the brief introduction of the newest class which will be added soon on other Dragon Nest version: THE ASSASSIN CLASS!
Finally the first image of the new class, assassin has been released, in a JDN event: Dragon Nest Fan Day 2013 in Japan. The following information was shared by 封弊者YAMI from duowan. The video is provided by gamernejp.

Antogonist of Dragon Nest Story: King Feather & 7 Apostles
(there are supposed to be 8 apostles, but Velskud quit :p)
Eyedentity has finally announced that the mysterious lady is the girl friend of assassin. Her name is Lunalia (or Lunaria).
The icons which are believed to be assassin's gear have been found in the CDN client v167.
These icons certainly shows that assassin is a male class!
The style of these gears bears some resemblence to the clothings on the mysterious lady.
3rd May 2013
The full image of the lady has been released today. It is a clear one finally.
However, her identity has not been made clear by Eyedentity.
Is she the assassin's girl friend?
or maybe his instructor?
or the picture is a hint that assassin could be the first char without gender-lock?
We are still waiting for answers .......

A 3rd image of the mysterious lady has been revealed today. The clothing she wear can bee seen in the picture. A tattoo/mark can be seen on her right arm too.
虚幽末 from duowan increase the contrast of color with photoshop and make the image slightly clearer (see below)
19th April 2013
The patterns on the headgear and weapon of the image have been revealed.
The file name this time is assassin_2nd.jpg
Link to the image:
The word "girfriend with sword" is not there anymore (on the zip file or the image file).
Who is she??
The guess continues .................
Anyway, so far, what is shown in the image does not fulfill the description of the assassin we knew (should be a male class). So very likely the person in the image is NOT the assassin class itself.
Today , a new artwork has been released on DN KR official website. The link of the artwork is: http://dn.image.happyoz.com/GMImg/Artwork/assassin.jpg
The link to the image suggests that it is the outline of the new assassin class.
However, upon downloading and unzipping the file, the name of the artwork is:
[ typo? girl friend??? ]
Seems like it is the assassin's girl friend?? -_-
I am not making any conclusion here since it could be misleading.
This might or might not be the assassin class we have anticipated.
However, it is 99% closely related to the assassin class itself.
Lets just wait for more confirmation on this .
More information of the new class, assassin has been found in the latest v157 client.
- Hunter who inherits ancient assassination technique; good at tracking enemies and assassinate them in an instant.
- Death messenger and reaper, uses chain and darts to track and kill enemies
