The Final Battle Draws Near By: Ignia

Heya Adventurers! Did I ever mention how glad I am that you guys are here? Thanks to you I feel like we’re really close to finding the culprit behind all this chaos in Lanox! Tomorrow we’ll be seeing two new dungeons and a level cap increase to 80! Rest up because we’ve got a long road ahead of us.

Hm… What was that? You want to know what happened to who? GM Crow Oh..! They…have their hands tied... Not to worry though because I’m here!



The Story…
I was right about the priestesses being kept in the Ash Covered Village but it appears as though the Blacksmiths had been under some sort of spell. It’s clear that not everything is as it seems and that the true culprit is able entrance others… Maybe the residents of the Phantasmal Geyser are behind all this? We should go teach them a lesson!

Dungeons

Phantasmal Geyser

You won’t see a lot of footing here, but Steel will be there to make teleporters which should help you cross those rushing currents. If you run into Sirena and she gives you trouble just know that her beauty doesn’t compare to mine!



Volcanic Flame Entrance

Don’t you worry El Search Party! This dungeon may look scary, but I’ll be there to guarantee you make it to the end safe and sound! What awaits us at the end I wonder… heh.



How am I able to guide you through the Volcanic Flame Entrance you ask? I’ve been there of cour- Errrrrr… Oh look over there! Super cool and cute item mall costumes!

Item Mall Goodies

New Ice Burner costumes for Lu and Ciel! Ciel looks pretty cool in his Archdevil set, don’tcha think? Certainly a hitman of the underworld!



Hmm… A demon monarch dressed as an Archangel. As if that would fool anyone! In addition to these, Lu and Ciel will also be getting new item mall costumes!



A new pet will be available tomorrow, but pay attention to the warning label she comes with. As your trustworthy Fire Priestess I’ll read it for you: “Caution, do not make eye contact!” If that’s not convincing enough then maybe her name Medusa might mean something! Clearly cute looks can kill.



And that’s that! If GM Crow was able to entrust this week’s news to me then I’m sure you adventurers can trust me with your lives! Let’s put an end to the culprit and save Lanox. See you all in-game tomorrow



and may it be the last time anyone hears from you again.

This new collection of swimsuits sure is sizzling hot, and you can even take your pick between versions with or without the extra covering, like Rena’s slightly see-through top and Elboy’s light sweater casually tied over his shoulders. See what works best for your character!



Gold Dragon Accessories
Temperatures may be hitting record highs this season, but you can downright scorch things up cosplaying as a part-dragon! Dragon wings and horns sure have that lasting and daring appeal that rarely ever goes ignored.

New Character Coming Soon: Luciel, the Dual Character



Luciel, the Dual Character
Coming soon


A new character is coming soon to Elsword. Experience not one, but two characters in one in this new revolutionary tag team character system. So, who is Luciel? Elsword Online’s first dual playable character, Luciel is a unique tag-team class made up of a previously-powerful demon and a notorious mob hitman. The story of how they teamed up is pretty cool, with him losing his life to protect hers, and her bringing him back as a half-demon. Can you just imagine how stunning playing these two would be? I can’t wait to see those enchanted claws and gunblades in action. It’s gonna be crazy awesome!

Background Story

Lu

In her pursuit to occupy the empty throne of the demon overlord, Luciela R. Sourcream, an exalted leader of demons, fell to her own imprudence and was betrayed by her right-hand servant. Bound and stripped of her power, she mustered all the energy she had left to escape the realm of demons, to the land of Elrios. Due to the vast amount of mana she used for the journey, Lu emerged in Elrios as a little child. However, this will not stop her from hunting down the demons plaguing Elrios, to recover her power and stature.

Ciel

After his parents were killed by bandits and he was left to fend for himself as a child, Ciel learned to do all he could to survive. Now an infamous hitman of a notorious gang, he suddenly found someone he could care about—an injured girl who only remembered her own name. As Ciel took care of Lu, assassins from the demon world found and attacked her one night. Ciel protected Lu, but he was killed. Right then, Lu’s memory returned. She offered to revive Ciel as a half-demon if he would become her servant. In his gratefulness, he accepted the contract.

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

Pastry

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons shortening

4 to 6 tablespoons cold water

Filling

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.

too repetitive

very grindy

PAY TO WIN. between the costumes and iceburner sets and events and pets this becomes very obvious after a while

character customization does not exist unless you pay for costumes which have stats and set bonuses

limited inventory and bank unless you buy from cash shop

hotbars for skills and items make it known you're limited there as well unless you got the cash shop item for those

any thing good i had to say about this is overshadowed by the fact that pay to win becomes blatantly obvious. i kid you not.there is infact an event happening at the time i write this post that's all about rewarding players with bonus items for spending as much money on cash shop as possible

i have better games to play with others
