Heya adventurers! How are you liking Rose so far? Are you enjoying her rapid moves and smooth gun-slinging feats? High five if you shouted a resounding yes to both! We are loving Rose and her Empyrean epicness as well. But of course it doesn’t stop there; prepare to have your minds blown (and everything in your general area too) because Rose is about to get more epic in the coming weeks. We guarantee that she'll start raising hell in peaceful Elrios – not that a little hell raising isn't already happening. A more powerful Rose is coming soon, but for now, enjoy the Empyrean Gunner as she is! We also have a lot of costumes for Rose and for other characters coming in tomorrow, so don’t forget to check the Item Mall out!


The temperature in Elrios is rising rapidly as Rose takes on a devilish form with the hot Ignition Caligo set. Collect the pieces from Rose Ice Burners tomorrow!

Dress Rose up as an Elite soldier with the Military Costume set. The only attire fitting for a heavy-hitting elite soldier such as herself. Watch for it tomorrow at the Item Mall!

Our three heroes, Ara, Elesis, and Add are beating the summer heat into submission by wearing comfortable clothing like the Summer Casual outfit.

As if the costumes were specifically made for them, the Demon Duo easily embrace the call of the dark with Dark Shadow and Pale Shadow costumes. Collect the set from Luciel Ice Burners.

That’s it for now brave adventures. Continue leveling up and mastering Rose!

See y’all in-game!

Today is the day we launch Elsword’s newest character, Rose. An elite marksman, and soldier of the highest honor, Rose locks iron sights on those who’ve attempted to assassinate the Princess of the Empyrean City.

Empyrean law mandates that each female child take a test before her fifth birthday. Those who demonstrate exceptional talent are then entered into extensive, brutal training regimen of the highest order, preparing only a select few to join an elite division of the Guard called the Imperial Garden. Those who pass will adopt the name of a flower that abides the opulent Royal Garden itself. Except one… the title of “Rose”. Rose is the title reserved for she who serves the Princess directly. To watch over and protect all Empyrean Royalty from its enemies.

The prophecy of the Great Disaster has tarnished what would have otherwise been centuries of peace. Those who divine the harrowed shadows of the coming prophecy know that its breadth transcends time and space. A rift tears reality asunder as a demon reaches from the gaping temporal maw, striking Princess Erze. Upon rending life from the demons very form, or more appropriately… emptying an entire salvo of brass into its cranium, the Royal Family knows that there’s only one option: Send Rose to strike out against those responsible before the prophecy can be fully realized. With her smarmy Combat Navigator Zero in tow, Rose traces the source of the demons to the land of Elrios, and our journey begins.

Rose is a combat ace of the highest order, and she literally carries an entire loadout of small arms into battle. From muskets, revolvers and semi-auto pistols to plate armor popping hand cannons, Rose covers the breadth of in-your-face close quarters to long range tactical strikes with poise and dignity. Rose brings the all new ECP combat system to Elsword. ECP is a new system that enables Rose to switch between the four weapon types, utilizing a measured casting bar that upon exhausting, triggers her damage boosting Over Strike mode.

Lock and Load!

Hiya, adventurers! After much time travelling between dimensions, Rose is so close you can smell her! If you don’t already know, June is the month of roses which is why we thought that it was the perfect month to bring Rose to the game. Don’t let her sweet name fool you, Rose is one tough gunslinger and will blow you to pieces if you cross her! You can change her guns anytime and each one has a different effect on enemies.

If you want to get a sneak peek into Rose, then the GMs have you covered! Be sure to join the GMs today on the Livestream at 4PM PDT for your exclusive Rose Sneak Peek, you won’t want to miss this!

Also, New and Returning Players Rewards have been updated. We will have pets, mounts, and titles for them starting tomorrow so go wake your homies up and tell them to start playing! At the Item Mall, we’re starting to stock up on costumes and accessories for Rose so don’t forget to check those out tomorrow!

Rose Launch
Play as Rose, the rootin' tootin' gunslinger girl from another dimension with an impressive arsenal. Get Rose-exclusive quests and rewards to get her started!
• Once Rose reaches level 10 and up she’ll receive a Secret Tome of Growth which, when used, can help you gain one level or more depending on the accumulated experience.
• Level up until 40 and you’ll get a +10 weapon for Rose for every 10 levels she reaches.
• Clear a dungeon with Rose two times to receive Traces of Battle which you can use to get an Archangel Full Set (1 Day) or Archangel Ice Burners and Standard Ice Burners.

Rose gets the Item Mall spotlight this week as we release the Oriental Mini Dress tomorrow! She’s ready to go for a walk in the park and then shoot some baddies on the way! Versatility!

In the dictionary, Empyrean means Heaven. Rose is literally sent from heaven! What’s a better clothing option for someone who’s a warrior of heaven than an Archangel costume you can get from Ice Burners? Nothing, that’s what.

This may not be the Iron Throne, this may not even be a throne at all, but it’s more useful since the Chair of Dekal can actually help you destroy your enemies! Get this useful chair when it comes out tomorrow!
