Dragon's Prophet is set in Auratias, a world made by dragons. One of the most important happenings of the world's history was the big fight between the wise dragon Lysaia and the evil dragon Kronos - both vanished in the process and the Osira, the world's humans, settled all over the world. But now Kronos has awakened and the player character has to stop him.
In its basic form, the game is a classic online RPG: players roam over the world and solve a lot of fetch quests in order to receive experience points and level ups. The combat system is action based (active targeting and the usage of combos) and therefore all four classes (guardian, ranger, oracle and sorcerer) are damage dealers. The remaining classes are filled up with dragon AI companions: every dragon can be tamed (well, at least if the player's level is high enough) and trained. The taming plays out in a rhythm mini game (balancing on the dragon's back) and afterwards the skill combinations are visible. If those are to the player's liking, the dragon is taken in and accompanies the player during quests and dungeons.
The game also features crafting and PvP which is separated from the main world. It plays out on isles which are embattled by different guilds. Some of the involved mechanics are strongholds, tactical points (can be used to hire mercenaries or buy siege weapons). Tactical points are earned with success in combat or by gathering the island's special resource. The game is free-to-play and supports itself with an item shop where players can buy additional items and more slots for additional dragons.
