I’ve been playing Dragon Nest for at least 5 months now, but the one thing I haven’t visited in the game is the Colosseum channel. My friends and I preferred the PvE and story experience that Dragon Nest gave. Despite this brooding lack of interest for the legally virtual and pre-arranged altercations, Dragon Nest’s Colosseum is a highly-lucrative venture for both the player and the company. Aside from the epic item market, the Colosseum is also a place for bragging rights. This channel is probably the most visited place in the game immediately after nearly 60-70% of the population reached the latest level cap.
Going up the Ladder
So how does Dragon Nest’s PvP Ladder work? It’s simple really. It’s a matter of logging into the game, selecting any Colosseum channel and entering the PvP lobby area via the Colosseum NPC. Search for waiting rooms with the 1v1 mode in them and fight! Every participation in a 1v1 battle gains you points that list your character in the Ladder rankings. Gain enough points and/or wins, and your character may reach the top 3 or top 10 best PvP ladder players. Most of the players wander around the first channel of the Colosseum, so it’s best to get your ladder points there. Do take note that the ladder rankings fluctuate daily, especially the top 10 contenders.
