Based on your feedback, XP and GP will no longer be awarded as a prize for defeating the Dread Drag’on. Instead, players will receive a delicious assortment of food for their pets! The Mantis Shrimp pet and mount will still be awarded.
We’ve received a lot of feedback on the Drag’on quest due to last weekend’s confusion. In particular, it turned out that awarding GP and XP for defeating the world boss significantly unbalanced the game for newer players, confusing them when it skipped them past the introductions for new features. This was one of those “hindsight is 20-20” moments, but luckily, the glitch allowed us to get the feedback early so that we still had time to fix it.
If you were looking forward to receiving the 900 XP and 90 GP upon completion of the battle, feel free to award it to yourself using Settings > Site > Fix Character Values when the battle is done! We hope that your pets will enjoy your new feast.
Thank you for bearing with us through the confusion! We love you guys.
