Older Information

When asked about the development of new skills, the developer mentioned that due to the large number of classes in Dragon Nest, it is very ‘costly’ to develop new skills.

Instead, a new Skill Awakening system will be introduced in the future. The system is still under development in Korea

Skill awakening will provide various active and passive skills, which define the new combat style for all classes. New skill names and skill icons have been found in the latest Dragon Nest CN client.

There seems to be a new item which has the description “a book which records the method to use the awakened power of hidden heroes”.

A few active & passive skill names related to Skill Awakening mode are listed below:

Awakening Mastery (A)
Awakening Mastery (B)
Swordsman of Infinity
Stance of Swordsman
Punishment of Swordsman
Awakening Mastery I
Awakening Mastery II
Demolition Axe
Side Step
Impact of Swordsman
Hammer of Swordsman
Sword of Bravery
