Standing alongside the many other free to play fantasy MMOs that are playable within your browser is Dragon Glory from 101XP. Familiar with incorporating dragons into their MMO games with the likes of Dragon Blood, a similar title also under their development belt players will find a title that has features reminiscent to the niche genre of browser RPGs. While these games rarely attract players outside of this niche audience Dragon Glory comes the closest of any yet with the high production values for the genre and generally deeper game mechanics compare to competitors.
Like many of the fantasy worlds out there Dragon Glory places you in the centre of demonic forces as you seek to push them back from the world with your team of heroes who fight for the goddess protector of the land. This mostly familiar setting also refers to players as the dragonborn hero who is the true savour of the universe that is capable of fixing the mistakes of your ancestors by defeating the demon army from atop your dragon. Ultimately your goal is to push through each continent battlefield where you’ll enter into the Abyss itself to face off against the dark creator of everything for the powers of the goddess.
Playing as a Dragon Knight for said goddess you’ll collect a team of heroes slowly throughout your adventure with formation playing a pivotal role in your ultimate success. This formation is vitally important given much of your combat success is derived from your positional advantage, equipment and character level as combat is highly automated otherwise.
While this team collection and setup is important for the single player portion of the game Dragon Glory has also placed a strong focus on the multiplayer which encourages player to get together and form guilds for the guild war and unique guild shop portion of the game. Combined these provide the later portion of your game goals although still optional for those that prefer PvE over PvP content in general.
Side to the core experience the usual elements of crafting and alchemy are staples to improving the strength of your team and go hand in hand with dragon training to become the ultimate Dragon Knight of the realm. Each of these requires careful planning and resources from the combat portion of gameplay which allows a carefully planned progression curve by a player boosting your progress compared to an unplanned player.
Translate this power into the lengthy team based dungeons, cross server wars and other adventures to claim as much gold as possible to rise through the ranks and equip your team even further to continue the cycle. Other game mechanics include a goddess blessing mechanic that provides valued rewards based on your own fortune and a wedding mechanic that provides special events to all that attend these couple events.
