Hi, and welcome to Dragon's Prophet.
You might have a question or two in regards to the client download locations, minimum specs, or crashing issues. Let me summarize a few basic things.
Downloading the client
Please check this page: https://www.dragonspropheteurope.com/de/game/client-download#view
Scrolling down also gives you a range of mirror sites which may provide the client faster as the majority tends to get it from our own servers and limit the bandwidth due to so many simultaneous downloads.
Ports needed to be opened
Ports required to be opened are TCP: 80, 16001-16350
System Specs (recommended)
CPU: i3 3220 3,3 Ghz or similar
RAM: 8 GB
Graphics card: Nvidia GTX 460 / AMD HD 4850 or higher
Hard drive: 20 GB free space
Operating system: Windows 7, 8 or Vista (Windows XP is outdated and not supported)
We have a vibrant community found at https://www.dragonspropheteurope.com/forum/ where you can learn a lot about the game, such as class guides, dragon nurturing or PVP mechanics. Additionally, we have prepared an extensive FAQ page at https://www.dragonspropheteurope.com/en/support/faq
My team and I are eagerly awaiting your questions you may have but please allow 48 hours for a reply due to many events going on, and various issues as described in news below.
Thanks, and have a great weekend in Auratia!

Random Crashes without error message (Nvidia only)
Posted by GM Declyn on 30 September 2013 03:34 PM
Since about 2 weeks many players and even our staff here at Infernum experienced the dreaded CTD or Crash to Desktop. This crash comes without any error message and simply closes the game client.
This happens due to some misinterpretation of the driver documentation, and consequently wrong implementation when introducing new graphical elements to the game in general, particularly the User Interface. However, reverting that is not that easy so we're constantly applying patches which aim to improve the situation, the last one on Saturday morning, and the next one later this week. These patches include a number of bug fixes too, and you may always check our Update Page for the latest patch notes.
Whenever a crash happens, a report file is created containing information because of why it happened and which components where affected. This file is sent automatically and anonymously to a server in which it can and will be analyzed. The sending occurs when starting the launcher again - you may have noticed the longer period it remains on 10%. There's no immediate need for you to send a ticket to the support team regarding this issue unless you run a kit involving an ATI card, or receive a specific error message.
