Elsword's Masters of Darkness Return in the Final 3rd Job 3rd Path Update

KOG Games, a leading developer and publisher of popular free-to-play MMORPGs, today launches Elsword’s third and final update in the hugely popular 3rd Job update series. This is a series that introduces 3 Job classes for at least 3 Paths for each and every playable character in the game. And if that wasn’t enough, this update ushers in the return of the dark and sinister Masters of Darkness storyline.

Each of the Elsword characters have at least 3 Job paths. Each of these paths now has 3 Jobs (Jobs are like character classes). One of the things that makes Elsword so interesting is each “Path” that a character has, represents a choice that was made, a life decision. This affects both the lore and how each character plays. The 3rd Job, 3rd Path update represents the doom, gloom and delectably sinister side of these characters.

As the El Search Party comes to grips with the fact that the road ahead may lead them straight into the heart of the Demon Realm, some have come to the realization that the only way to defeat those that sit proudly upon the throne of darkness, is to embody insanity; they must become darkness and violence incarnate.

But that’s not all that’s going into this update today. Because the 3rd Jobs are end game content for a massive character lineup, KOG is ringing in a huge update with some even bigger Events and giveaways:

Whether you’re an edgelord fanboy (or fangirl), love the crazy or yandere type characters… or are just into the Cutey, Beauty Pretty Metamorphy magical girls, Elsword’s Masters of Darkness, 3rd Job update is exactly the kind of big evil you need.
