Hi-ya Elpeeps! It’s already February and we all know what that means: Valentine’s Day and Lunar New Year are here! Time to break out the fireworks and start digging in on moon cakes! If you’re single and willing to mingle then find out tomorrow to see what Elsword has up its sleeves. We’ve got great events and even greater Item Mall goodies for everyone this week!

Lunar New Year Celebration
Get your fireworks and lucky charms ready because the Lunar New Year in Elsword promises prosperity and good luck. We’re practically giving stuff away during the celebration!

• Log your attendance for 8 days straight and receive rewards for each day that you do! Be sure to click the ‘Attendance’ button after 16 minutes to be able to click on the glowing puzzle piece, otherwise it won’t count!
• Cobo Services are also giving away Lucky Bags and Luriel’s Ice Burners for just logging-in for 60 minutes every day during the event.
• During the Lunar New Year’s celebration you’ll be given a chance to Teach Son Goku a Lesson. Defeat him 3x a day to get a Gold ED Bag. Collect 8, plus 1 Alchemy Essence, and you’ll get a Millionaire’s Dream accessory when you exchange the materials through Ariel.

Valentine’s Day Event
Don't let the opportunity to be with your fated one pass by. The Valentine's Day events will definitely be bringing people together. Plus, there’s free stuff and we’re sure you don’t want to miss that.

• You don't have to play alone this Valentine's Day. During the event, there will be a UI that allows you become a couple with someone on the same server. If the coupling becomes successful then you and your partner can reap the benefits of being a couple this Valentine's Day!
• Couples and married couples get an MP Buff called The Power of Love! and The Power of Promise! in dungeons.
• Players who get married during the event will receive four Wedding Bouquet Flowers that can be exchanged with Ariel for costumes and consumables. Players who attended a wedding will also get a Wedding Bouquet Flower.


Look dapper and appear like you always mean business – even when you’re fooling around – with the newest Noir costume.

The Qipao costume suit really gets you into the celebration by dressing you up in a traditional Chinese costume.

And lastly, Fossil Reader Packages have a 1 + 1, 5 + 1, and 10 + 3 bundle options. This guarantees that you won’t run out of Fossil Readers when you need it most.

Happy Lunar New Year everyone~ See you all in game!

Hi~ya Elpeeps! We hope you had an awesome New Year ‘cause we sure did! Season 2 continues with the rebirth of the genius magician and Nasod-armed mercenary! But we still need to polish a few more things before we’re ready for the reveal. We also have some indubitably marvelous costumes and items for you at the Item Mall so don’t forget to check those out.

Magician – Mercenary Tourney

Calling all Aishas and Ravens! The Magician-Mercenary Tournament is coming really soon and this time it’s your moment to shine! Show off your mad PVP skeelz and be among the last teams standing. Registration for the Magician-Mercenary Tournament starts January 7, 2016, 7:00 PM PST. You can visit this site for more details. Exciting prizes are up for grabs!

NPC Affinity

Start making friends with your favorite NPC or all of the NPCs! We know you’ve been waiting to have a chat with the almost stoic Echo, or the clumsy but cute Luriel, so we’re giving you a chance to interact with them. They’ll only talk to you for a short while, though, because they’re such busy NPCs, ya know? But you’ll get rewards for getting to know them. The rewards get even better when you befriend all the NPCs in a particular town.


Start the New Year with an ironic but tasteful blast into the past, and we mean a couple of hundred years past. These elegant Rococo Outfits will bring out the aristocratic flairs in your characters.

Gold Fossil Readers will also come out tomorrow. What makes this better than the normal Fossil Readers is that players have a better chance to acquire mounts.

See you all in game!

Happy New Year in advance Elpeeps, we’re finally transitioning into the New Year! We’ve had a great year together and now we’re looking forward to the many changes 2016 will bring to Elrios. We’ve got the last round of activities for the year that we know you’ll enjoy and we also have a bunch of new stuff available at the Item Mall!

Turn of the Year in Elrios

Fortune Cookies! FEVER! A missing party girl Ariel? These are just a few of the many things you can do during the New Year’s Event.

• Usher in the New Year stronger and better when you play because there’s unlimited Stamina, 2X Exp, and 2x Drop Rate from New Year’s Eve through the weekend! *squeals*
• No need to visit a fortune teller when Helen’s Fortune Cookie can tell you what your future brings! Even the unluckiest of players will feel fortunate when they get hold of Helen’s Fortune Cookie.
• Ariel has gone partying and has left her post and poor Luriel alone. Bring Ariel back and you will be rewarded handsomely.
• Do you want to be a grandfather clock for the New Year? Who wouldn’t! Nothing marks the passing of the year more than wearing grandfather clocks because you’ll definitely know when it’s 12 midnight. Log-in for 10 minutes to receive materials and talk to Nasod Ariel to start crafting.
• Only in Elsword can you countdown to the New Year and get rewards for doing so. From December 30 to January 12 just click on the attendance check icon and click on one of the boxes to mark your “attendance” and get rewards for every box clicked for 8 days.


These Item Mall goodies will most definitely make your New Year happy. Join the dark side with Gothic Punk Costumes and make your mark this coming year.

Our dynamic duo gets a menacing makeover with Evil Tracer. Get Luciel’s Ice Burners and start collecting parts now!

Rena and Elsword are looking oh so dignified while wearing the Grand Ice Burner’s El Search Party Officers Costume start doing official stuff and things now! Sooo fancy!

KOG Games, a leading developer and publisher of popular free-to-play action MMORPGs, today announces the launch of the highly anticipated Elsword: Season 2 Update. Only 2 weeks into December…players can already experience some MASSIVE updates to the game throughout the winter season and beyond! See below for the full scoop on Elsword: Season 2!

Elsword and Rena… a Renavation…

From the visual appearance of Elsword or Rena as they appear onscreen, to completely revamping their attack animations, balance and feel….a change has occurred. Changes improve controls and the overall player experience when using these two characters, and so much more.

Exclusive, New English Voices – As Season 2 rolls out, Elsword players will notice one major difference: Elsword and Rena have a whole lot to say… in English! The world renowned Cristina Vee (Bleach, Sword Art Online) and Nicolas Roye (Naruto, Digimon) lend their amazing voices to immerse players and allow them to truly play their Manga, and this is only the beginning. The entire cast of Elsword, NPCs too, are auditioning for their new roles! (hint: stay tuned!)

Skill trees have been streamlined – Apart from the UI changes presented in the new Skill Tree, skills you can learn are now sorted into the respective skills’ level requirement. Players can now choose from two Traits for each active skill. These Traits enhance and refine skills to cater to a player’s individual play style

Skill Designs and Rebalance – Players will notice that some of their old skills now look absolutely brilliant. Rena’s arrows, volleys and new skills look epic, and Elsword’s attack animations, combos and explosive new casts are gigantic and brilliant. Every improvement made, with the logic in mind, of bringing the lesser used Characters and Jobs up to par with those that seem more powerful. Play who you want vs who you think you should!

Attack/Command Skill Update – The attack commands have been updated to offer a whole new play style. Some of the tired, less used attack combos have been updated to offer players a whole new element of play, and the UI has been updated to make these combo elements easier to access.

The all new Elsword and Rena only Tournament! – So, Elsword and Rena are being Reborn in true Season 2 fashion so let’s test every refinement with a smidge of hardcore PvP… Tournament style! This Friday, some of the biggest names in Elsword PvP will face off! 32 teams of 2 will throw blows using only one Rena and one Elsword per team. The final matches will be Livestreamed on Saturday here:

Elsword Season 2 Giveaway! – All players who login and play as Elsword or Rena for at least 2 hours during the following Event period (12/16 to 12/31) will be entered into the sweepstakes. 93 winners will be chosen to win cool IRL Elsword swag: mousepads, tote bags, lanyards, Notepads and more. Including the K-Ching giveaway, there will be 2,315 winners total!

Freebies – When you log into the game as Elsword or Rena, just wait 10 minutes and you’ll be given a free cube gift that keeps on giving as you level up! Loots are given out every 10 levels
