Big Guild Updates!

Ahoy! How many of you El Peeps are in a guild? If you are then I hope you feel my jealously have confetti cannons ready because it’s time to say out with the old and in with the new! With this patch, guilds will have access to all sorts of co-op quests and their own secret base! As for those of us without a guild, let’s try our best to find one!

The Guild Base

Inside the guild base you’ll find a guild storage as well as Myu and Edan. Players who aren’t in your guild will not be able to enter your base so it’s a perfect spot to carry out top secret meetings! Share items with fellow guild members using the guild storage and provide benefits to your guildies through Myu’s service!

Item Mall Goodies

Jet set and take off on a high speed Jet Ski. This product of Hamel unleashes wicked waves along with fish torpedoes and sharks! How does the Jet Ski function on land you ask? The same way Veteran Commander uses Ignition Crow underwater.

The irony of a hitman becoming an officer! Ciel will make sure criminals have the right to remain silent. Lu on the other hand has a big claw… feel free to laugh. As I was saying! Lu on the other hand looks adorable and really commands that official look.

Ara, Add, and Elesis will be getting a new set of summer swimsuits tomorrow. Climate is often times an overlooked enemy of Elrios, but these outfits were designed to combat the summer heat!

Reign Supreme With Noblesse & Dreadlord; The Ultimate Dual Character

Luciel’s second job, Noblesse and Dreadlord is now online and Live.

The dangerous duo have challenged the demon throne usurpers with their own brand of demonic magic, explosive close-quarter melee and unrelenting combos!
Lu’s second job class, Noblesse, will see her use her new powers to take full control over souls and shadow to make them fight for her, and with this, Lu changes up her basic combat roll from close quarter powerhouse to a mid-range team player. Lu has grown in power under Ciel's loyal support, and with newfound immense power, her presence on the battlefield is unparalleled.
After receiving substantial assistance from Ciel, Lu finally regains enough power to pose a huge threat to those who’ve usurped her throne. With her former abilities restored, Lu can summon and control demonic spirits with ease, and unleash her own personal hell upon the netherworld. Using her renewed influence and strength, Lu will punish those who betrayed her and strip them of their ill-gotten power.

As Dreadlord, Ciel specializes more on big unyielding combo attacks. With a new salvo of melee and demonic weapons in hand, Ciel is capable of firing heavy projectiles at distance and then closing the distance for some in-your-face brutality. If Ciel’s new hybrid weapon repertoire wasn’t enough, his ability to extract the ever-living souls from his enemies to help strengthen his skills is just ... dreadful!

The wretched atrocities brought about by the demon invasion seem endless, and the day when Lu will retake her throne couldn’t feel any further from reality, Ciel, who has now overcome human limitations with the power of demons, focuses all his efforts on supporting Lu so that she may re-take her throne at all costs. With this, it is no accident that Ciel has grown into a very potent guardian and unrelenting combatant.

Stay away from pvp, the game is awesome, pvp community is extreamly bad. Creative/guild community is awesome, just join a guild thats not based on just an anime (for example: NARUTOADDICTS) and youll be fine; people are very helpful (as long as you are in a guild).

I love this game.. cute characters, nice combos, fun pass time.. But if you hate it, then.. Here~ Make an apple pie instead :3


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons shortening

4 to 6 tablespoons cold water


1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon salt

8 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples (8 medium)

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1) In medium bowl, mix 2 cups flour and 1 teaspoon salt. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry almost cleans side of bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons more water can be added if necessary).

2) Gather pastry into a ball. Divide in half; shape into 2 flattened rounds on lightly floured surface. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate about 45 minutes or until dough is firm and cold, yet pliable. This allows the shortening to become slightly firm, which helps make the baked pastry more flaky. If refrigerated longer, let pastry soften slightly before rolling.

3) Heat oven to 425°F. With floured rolling pin, roll one pastry round into round 2 inches larger than upside-down 9-inch glass pie plate. Fold pastry into fourths; place in pie plate. Unfold and ease into plate, pressing firmly against bottom and side.

4) In large bowl, mix sugar, 1/4 cup flour, the cinnamon, nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Stir in apples until well mixed. Spoon into pastry-lined pie plate. Cut butter into small pieces; sprinkle over filling. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1/2 inch from rim of plate.

5) Roll other round of pastry into 10-inch round. Fold into fourths and cut slits so steam can escape. Unfold top pastry over filling; trim overhanging edge 1 inch from rim of plate. Fold and roll top edge under lower edge, pressing on rim to seal; flute as desired. Cover edge with 2- to 3-inch strip of foil to prevent excessive browning.

6) Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust, removing foil for last 15 minutes of baking. Serve warm if desired.

Dungeons are fun.
But as an S rank NW, I can confirm that pvp is pay to win as hell. No matter how well you can outplay your opponents, most of 'em will just be cashed up Lv70s that oneshot you with supers or something. Pretty frustrating.
Aside from pvp though, too many things that should be basic features in the game are insanely expensive and only apply to each individual character... You looking to fully enjoy that new character? Check your wallet, son.
