The Tongue of Elrios

-This doesn’t apply for players with  internet speed so good that they can PvP with Koreans almost perfectly with no distance lag.-

But for you players that experience noticeable distance lag during your matches against Korean players, I highly recommend that you all restrain yourselves from at least playing in random arena matching more than necessary amounts.

As some of you might know. Korean server implemented IP block for certain countries few days ago. While exact reason for this block is still unknown, it is suspected that Nexon is starting to cut off all the countries that don’t earn them enough money to justify having the local Koreans dissatisfied with the game because of foreigners with annoying distance lag.

Due to the recent ‘End of PvP Season 2′ event, the amount of reports and discussions about foreigners with distance lag ruining their PvP experience has become uncomfortably high in the Korean Elsword communities.

Before, this wasn’t much of an issue as foreigners in the Arena was something more like an Epic NPC encounters to them. (Although more annoying in higher ranking matches). However due to this recent event, amount of foreigners queuing up for Arena has risen considerably, and along with it, the amount of complaints against foreigners in the Korean community has risen to worrisome levels as well. There is a high possibility that Nexon KR will decide to IP block more countries if the amount of dissatisfaction amongst its players rises to critical levels.

This doesn’t mean don’t enjoy the PvP events. But please keep the amount of Arena matches you have to bare necessities. Using the recent event as an example, it’s pretty hard to let the chance to get the very special Season 2 Avatar set. Still, if you only need 30 matches, just do 30 matches and no more. If you aren’t in the high enough rank to get the rewards you wanted, please don’t be greedy and just settle with lower ranks that gets you only the necessities.  Even just reaching S or SS rank(which is rather easy to get) will get you 4 or 5 piece of avatars. While the weapon piece can easily be replaced by IBs and there are much better hair pieces out there. Is PvPing really that important that you have to endure the P2P distance lag all the while risking you and your fellow foreign player’s chance to be playing in KR server at all? If feel like you have to no matter what enjoy the PvP experience in KR server, please be satisfied with just Sparring with your fellow foreign players.

All of the above also can apply to playing dungeons with Korean players as well. However, dungeons are not as big of an issue as they mostly aren’t competitive content.

Please remember that the Korean Elsword server isn’t made with the intention of servicing foreign players. Foreign players have absolutely no rights in the Korean server. (Maybe except actual Koreans using their own accounts living outside Korea). Please be thankful that we get this wonderful opportunity to play at all in the mother server of this game we all love so much with the chance try out all its newest contents. So please try your best not to do things that inconvenience the local players in Korea whenever possible and do not risk ruining the KR server experience for every other foreign KR players as well.

Thank You.

Grand Master Creation Story

April 16th, 2014 | Posted by 2nafishisgood in Interviews - (0 Comments)

<Knights captain fighting for her country in the front lines, Grand Master>

Tell us about Grand Master’s concept

S: I worked on her using the ‘Female Knight with a frail body fighting in the front lines for her country’ as a key word.

 Technically, it was the other job’s point to show the Elesis’s boyish side so this job focused on the girlish charm of the ‘Lady Knight Elesis’.

The graceful image that the 1st job had with dress-like armor and neat hairstyle was enhanced even more, while Elesis’s boyish side was attempted to be shown in a roundabout way by giving her a huge sword that even a heavily built man would have trouble carrying, and having her fight in the front lines with that sword.

<Different views of Grand Master>

What was the most difficult part of creating Grand Master?

S: There were a lot of difficulty in designing Saber Knight to be fancy, so even when put together with other 2nd jobs she wouldn’t stand out. Also drawing the illustration. There are lots to improve on but I’m glad a lot of the adventurers like it. T_T

<Looking more like Grand Master right?>

What’s the main charm of the Grand Master?

S: Girlish! Giant Sword! and lastly, and of course wouldn’t it obviously be her backside?!

Grand Master was worked on strictly in the concept of enhancing the charm of Saber Knight. There was some time gap between the 1st job and the 2nd job so I hoped people would not regret choosing Saber Knight when seeing Grand Master.

….In truth, I was lured in by Saber Knight’s backside and ended up working on Grand Master.

<You can see her attractiveness in this skill cut-in>

You can say another charming point of Grand Master’s is her Giant Sword. Tell us about the sword.

S: Grand Master’s promotion sword design was designed with ‘What shape would it take if Grand Master’s personality was reflected in her Sword of Victory?’. After much pondering, I concluded for myself that ‘even if they are  same skills, Saber Knight would wield a pure blade, while Grand Master would wield giant shield like sword!’. If it was another Elesis and not a Grand Master, she’d probably have different looking sword. :->

<Her Giant Sword>

And some last words for all the adventurers-

S: Because Grand Master’s promotion illustration emphasizes her formal position as the Knight leader, there were some of you who were worried about how Elesis’s jolly personality might have disappeared. Grand Master also has the jolly personality of the original Elesis. Except now she’s aware that her actions or appearance stands for image of the Knights as a whole so she controls herself in formal situations! So you don’t need to worry ^_^

Adventurers that loves Elsword~!

I’ll do my best so you can always have fun time. ‘-’)7

Thank you.

Oh and this is a bonus~

1st Job ‘Shield Knight’ Description:

During her travels to find clues about the demons that attacked her and Elsword, Elesis comes across many dangerous situations. While Elesis’s overwhelming skills were good enough to allow her to survive any encounter, there were some cases where people that she fought together with were critically injured.

“While, it is important to hone my individual skills, in the future there might be enemies that I absolutely cannot defeat alone. Battles are not won by having one or two skilled fighters, it is won when more of your team survives and combines their strength.”

To better protect everyone she fights with, Elesis decides to pick up a shield. With the help of the Elder village blacksmith Lenphad, she manages to obtain a durable shield that she could use.

“I’m going protect everyone. So that everyone can fight their hardest!”

With her new shield in one hand and her claymore in another, Elesis claims the title ‘Shield Knight’.

Elesis continues her journey, protecting everyone that’s important to her.

2nd Job ‘Infernal Sentinel’ Description:

Continuing her journey as the Shield Knight, Elesis runs into a problem. The shield she used until now has started to burn out due to her continuously increasing power to control the fire. Then in the Altera village, the village chief Adell tells her about the legendary shield named Svalinn that can withstand any type fire and allows the user to amplify and control the fire that the shield comes in contact with.

“That King Nasod uses the shield to control the direction his immense laser pong.” Elesis obtains the Svalinn after defeating the King Nasod. However, while it did not burn up like the other shields, the shield refused to allow Elesis to utilize its full power.

Continuing her journey and reaching Feita’s battlefield, the Knight Lento recognizes Elesis’s shield and gives her an advice. “Sometimes weapons that have existed for long time can develop a consciousness. They will not let the user utilize its full power until it has recognized the wielder’s strength.”

Following Lento’s advice, Elesis defeats many powerful demons in the battlefield of Feita in order to have Svalinn to recognize her as its master. Then finally, Elesis became able to use Svalinn to its full potential.

Using her new power, she helps to drive off the demons from Feita, becoming the ‘Infernal Sentinel’ that protects everyone that fights along with her.
