Walk in Ain’s New Path! Lofty: Anpassen and Erbluhen Emotion is Here in Time for The Lunar New Year!

Heya adventurers! Guess what we have in store for you tomorrow? Ok, you don't need to guess, it's in the title. But aren't you excited for it? I am! Aside from Ain's 2nd Path, we also have the Lunar New Year's Celebration coming in early so get your fireworks ready! And a new map has become available in the Elrios Studio for your character photo shoots. Win/Lose motions are also now in the studio as well. Check out Solace's Family Garden and the new motions in the studio tomorrow! And last but certainly not the least, we have TONS of stuff coming out at the Item Mall tomorrow. We guarantee that you'll love all of it!

Ain 2nd Path Event
Ain's second path has been revealed and tomorrow you can conquer the whole of Elrios with him! But wait, don't forget to join the event to get epic rewards!
  • Players who have not received Ain's Diorama during Ain's launch will have another chance to get it tomorrow! You can't be greedy, though. Players who already have Dioramas from Ain’s launch won't be able to see the timer event anymore.
  • You will get an El Energy when you log-in for an accumulated time of 10 minutes. The El Energy can be used to craft a new special accessory!
  • If you want to craft that special accessory, you only need to party up with an Erbluhen Emotion three times to get God's Power. Yes, you can get God's Power. You don't even have to party up if you're an Erbluhen Emotion. You can just solo those dungeons, bruh!
  • Annnnnd when you change from Ain's Base Job to Lofty: Anpassen or Erbluhen Emotion, you get a special equipment cube containing +7 items! Praise Ishmael!

Lunar New Year
Enter the dragons, and fireworks, and lucky charms! Celebrate the Lunar New Year in Elrios with eggs and Ruchis!
  • Level up by one using the Sage's Scroll you’ll get when you login for 60 minutes!
  • Beat up those pesky Golden Ruchis disrupting your dungeon runs and you can get a nifty Lucky Pocket that either gives a stat boost or a helping hand in your run!
  • Free Golden Eggs that replenish 100% of your HP and MP over at Ariel's! Why? Because we can!
  • Log-in for 30 minutes during the second week of the event and you'll get an adorable Mini Ruchi accessory to accompany you in your travels!

Item Mall Goodies
Travel the dead-cold terrains in style like the nomads of the olden days with the Arctic Travel set. If you don’t like traversing ice terrains for fun, it’s also a suitable attire to get extra toasty during the winter. Get it tomorrow!

You won't need to go to the universe because with the Celestial Master Ice Burner set the universe is within you or on you… You are the universe! Complete this beautiful set when it comes out tomorrow!

Open your eyes, your eyes are open. Now it's Ain's and Rose's turn. Open their eyes and give them a new set of peepers. Choose from Black Eyes for Rose and Ain, or Cat Eyes for Ain! Available tomorrow!

Are Rose and Ain catwalk ready or battle ready? They can be both! Get Battle Poses and Model Poses for Rose & Ain tomorrow!

After all that posing, why don't you let Rose & Ain take a much-deserved rest. Let them have a seat on colorful and whimsical crescent moons with Moonlight Dream tomorrow!

That's all for now folks!

See y'all in-game~

The Item Mall has new stuff coming out tomorrow, as well! Cool costumes, epic mounts, and – well just go crazy when these items arrive tomorrow.

Rocket Attendance Event
If you want a new permanent costume that’s totally free and a number of usable items for your characters, let us take your hand and let’s get ready for lift off!
  • Get Rocket Coins from doing a series of events every day. If you can’t do it on your own, party up and see those sweet, golden coins flowing in!
  • Once you have enough Rocket Coins you can complete the Attendance Quest every day for a total 9 days! And what do you get for completing? A complete Bad Guys Costume Set, Dual Magic Stones, Twisted Sage’s Magic Stones, and a Phoru’s Pawprint Gift Set! Remember, the costume parts are given at different days and require different amounts of Rocket Coins to get.
  • If you have completed all the quests for this event and you still have some coins lying around, exchange them to Ariel for useful things!

Item Mall Goodies
