“Teamwork is a core requirement in clearing advanced levels of Dragon Nest, and it is certainly a value we want our players to take away from the game,” said Mr Addison Kang, Vice-President of Shanda Games International. “The Hardcore mode of the Desert Dragon Nest requires players to take cooperation and determination to a whole new level, and we hope our incentives from the Challenge will give them added inspiration to clock their best possible time in defeating our hardest boss character yet.”
