Discover the Magic of Wardrobes and Start Your Day with a Nice Brawl in Ereda Island!

Heya adventurers! Get ready to stretch those gaming fingers and make sure that you’re very comfortable in your seats because we have tons of stuff coming in this week just for you! Fashionistas, say you want to wear something for the stats but it’s just not quite your style, what do you do? Why not wear that fashionable costume on top of that not-so-stylish but totally OP set? I see you shaking in excitement but hold on to your girdles for now because this update doesn’t come out until tomorrow! PVPers, this one’s for you. We’ve made some awesome improvements in Ereda Island that we want you to check out, so don’t forget to queue up and start a fight tomorrow! Also, if you’re planning to create a new character, tomorrow’s the perfect time to do so. Newly created characters will get awesome rewards when they reach Ruben to start their journey. And as always, there’s plenty of amazing stuff at the Item Mall that you wouldn’t want to pass up tomorrow so don’t forget to take a peek!

Magic Wardrobe
The new magic wardrobe is coming out and what it does is it overrides your current attire with one of the many available costumes from the Magic Closet. It definitely won’t transport you to Narnia but it’s a most-awaited solution to stop you from choosing form over function because fighting baddies when you don’t feel cute doesn’t feel right at all!

Ereda Revamp
Battle against another team to destroy a giant crystal and your foes’ hopes and dreams in an all-new Ereda island! Want to experience these improvements? Test it out tomorrow!
  • Get a Tenacious Warrior’s Accessory Cube (1 Day) every day during the event so you can trial the awesome accessories you can get from Ereda. From this cube, you will get 8 accessories plus 1 Tenacious Warrior’s Chronicle that’s unique to each character!
  • Get additional 15 Champion’s Victory Medal daily when you play Ereda island 3 times a day!
  • Receive an Incomplete Guardian Flag when you login for 10 minutes. It’s an accessory but also a crafting material which you can use to make an even better accessory: Ereda’s Guardian Flag!
  • And get 1 Sage’s Scroll every Saturday and Sunday during the event when you play Ereda Island win or lose!

New Character Support
We know you love creating new characters and we’re here to support them with a new event!
• Every time you create a new character during this event, they will be given up to 9 Adventurer Equipment Cubes containing a variety of useful and fun items (you even get a 30-day pet) to help your newly created characters begin their journey into Elrios!

Item Mall Goodies

More cute stuff in the form of cats are coming in tomorrow! The Cat Accessory Package comes with a feisty tail you can wear and a real live cat that’s super chill to put on top of your head!

Finally, Rosso has his own set and can sit at the cool kids’ table with Solace and the other El Masters! Feel the fiery wrath of the El Search Party because Salvatore Rosso comes out tomorrow!

Edit: The Dark Chaser mount we previously mentioned will come out on a later date. We apologize for the inconvenience.

That’s all for now folks~

See y’all in game!
