Receive the Full Moon’s Blessings through Noah’s 3rd Path!



KOG Games, a leading developer and publisher of popular free-to-play action MMORPG Elsword, is releasing the 3rd and Final Noah Job Path - Nyx Pieta! This class utilizes the power of the Full Moon to simultaneously protect and buff your allies while raining damage upon enemies.

Check out the Noah 3rd Path Teaser Trailer Video here: https://youtu.be/UDSW851TjyM

After suffering the impact of many lost loved ones, Noah decides to solely dedicate his life to healing and protecting the lives of others. This causes him to become the Pilgrim of the Silver Moon, Nyx Pieta. This path of Noah utilizes the power of Relics to both support and heal allies and unleash the full power of the moon against any who tries to do harm.

Nyx Pieta channels the power of the Moon into his playstyle with both the Blessing of Moonlight System and the Relics of Confession and Rest. The Blessing of Moonlight System buffs certain skills depending on the Moon Phases, which changes every time a skill is cast.

The Relics of Confession and Rest provides Nyx Pieta with the power of destruction and protection. Utilize the Relic of Confession to gain additional damage buffs while Relic of Rest provides your allies peace of mind with healing and other supporting buffs.

During the period of Nyx Pieta’s Launch, Elsword will be celebrating the Noah 3rd Path Update Event which is specifically designed to help jumpstart your Nyx Pieta with rewards like a 50% EXP Boost Medal, Consumable Potions, Mounts and more! Furthermore, once you finish the event, you can claim a [Luriel] Saint’s Crown which is an exclusive Nyx Pieta-based accessory created for this event!

In addition, login during the weekend for the Noah 3rd Path Update Special Weekend Event! On Saturdays during his release celebration (March 13th and 20th), we’ll give 100 Spectral Amethyst for players that log in for 60 minutes. These Spectral Amethyst will be used to both craft and upgrade the most powerful armor set currently available - the Amethystine Prophecy set.
On Sundays, we’ll provide a Sunday Burning Event with 2x EXP on March 14th 2021 and 2x Drop Rate on March 21st 2021. This will allow players to rapidly level up while gaining valuable drops from dungeons on Sundays!

Furthermore, you’re invited to the Moonlight Gala (Full Moon), a special board game event where players win rewards as they complete daily quests and progress through the board. Finish the board game and players will be rewarded with the Legendary Moon Rabbit Costume Suit. This will be a unique opportunity to obtain a costume suit that suitably represents Nyx Pieta.

Revel in the Power of the Stars with Noah’s 2nd Path Update!



KOG Games, a leading developer and publisher of popular free-to-play action MMORPG Elsword, is unveiling Noah’s Second Path - Celestia. This Second Path has complete mastery over the celestial power of the stars to both lend aid to his allies and devastation to his enemies.

Check out the Noah Second Path Teaser Trailer Video here: https://youtu.be/qi7newoJpik

As Celestia, Noah overcomes his desire for revenge and accepts the tutelage of Clamor, a former elven scholar who is Noah’s close friend. Through his increasing knowledge of Magic, Noah concentrates his studies on the great flow of the sun, moon, celestial bodies and the power of time within himself. He becomes the “Observer of the Constellations” travelling between the memories of the cosmos and the present.

Celestia wields both the Sickle and Magical Cards as his primary weapons, which allows him to harness the power of constellations. As he draws his power from Space itself, Celestia’s options are just as vast and powerful. This allows Celestia to support his allies through healing and buffs, while also allowing him to rain down meteorites, stars and even planets upon his enemies. But be cautious as the entropic nature of Space may be difficult to control leading to side-effects - both good and bad.

During the period of Celestia’s Launch, Elsword will be celebrating the Noah 2nd Path Update Event which is specially designed to help jumpstart your Celestia with rewards like 50% EXP Boost Medal, Consumable Potions, Mounts and more! Furthermore, once you finish the event, you can claim a [Luriel] Mark of Bonding which is an exclusive Celestia-based accessory created for this event!

In addition, login during the weekend for the Noah 2nd Path Update Special Weekend Event! From February 13th to 14th, we begin with the “Weekend Burning!” Event which awards players with up to 100 Sage Stones or 160 Spectral Amethyst which can be used to socket or reforge their gear to be stronger. And from February 20th to 21st, players can enjoy a “Hot Burning Event!” with 2x EXP on Saturday February 20th and 2x Drop Rate on Sunday February 21st.

Check out all the Noah 2nd Path Celebration Events in more detail here: https://elsword.koggames.com/noah-2nd-path-release/

The highly-anticipated Treasure Hunt Event will also make a return featuring a newly recolored version of one of the most-liked Ice Burner Set - the Black Dragon Servius. Any K-Ching spent during the event period will reward players with Keys which can open Treasure Chests awarding coins to trade for the set pieces of this prized set. This will come alongside an Enhancement Event, Premium Ice Burner Event and special exclusive packages to power up your Noah!

The Stars are aligned for all players with the Second Path, Celestia’s Release. So don’t miss out on the best chance to try out the newest character Noah, and his newest path. Login and create your Celestia before the third and final path arrives at a future date! These Events will run from February 10th 2021 to February 24th 2021 so do not miss out.

Elsword's Laby Gets Her 3rd Job Path



The Eternal Night Takes Over the Adorable Brawler

Irvine, Calif., March 6, 2019 – KOG Games, a leading developer and publisher of popular free-to-play action MMORPGs, today released the 3rd Job Path, Rusty Child, for their newest, playable character, Laby (pronounced lab-ee). Check out the new trailer here.

Laby's excitement from entering a new world soon faded and was replaced by a feeling of discomfort. She could not shake the feeling, eventually leading her to make a mistake in the battlefield. Despite this, she was able to defeat the enemies with Nisha’s help. Bellonde, however, was injured in the process and his wounds were not healing immediately like hers. She finally realized where her feelings of discomfort were coming from.

Trusting Nisha to take care of her, Laby gives all of her emotions to Nisha allowing her to become corporeal while Laby slowly fades away. To prevent Laby from disappearing, Nisha turned her into a mirror and promised to make this world a place just for Laby - where she can be happy like before.

Rusty Child, Daydreamer, and Nisha Labyrinth; come to realize the nature of their existence... together. Until the day all light fades to nothing.

Dark path stans and Laby lovers unite! Today is the day you’ve all been waiting for! The gloom and doom of Nisha is upon us! An Exciting New Adventure and special rewards are available today, including:

  • Every 10 levels plus accomplishing specific tasks will give Laby plenty of rewards to keep her afloat as she explores her new world! Fill your inventories with rewards like: Accessories, Expansion Cubes, Potions, Mounts, a Mini Poco, and so much more!
  • Plus, get more consumable rewards daily like Sage’s Magic Stones, Elixirs, and Potions when you clear dungeons within her level range!

The Laby 3rd Job Path Event begins today and concludes on March 19 at 11:59 PDT.
