Every character in Elsword has his/her unique features that sets them apart from other characters.

Power of Eun

Changes to UI Face.
When Ara is in Celestial Fox Mode, her battle stance changes.

By using the hairpin of Eun (design varies on her class), Ara is able to go into a 3rd awakening bead transformation called the Celestial Fox Mode. While in this mode, her appearance changes, in which her hairstyle will change(hairstyle varies on her class) and become fully white, 9 spectral tails will also appear on her back, giving her the looks of the Gumiho. Equipped accessory will not be shown in this mode. Benefits of Celestial Fox Mode will be:

  • Ara gains the standard awakening damage increase.
  • Unlike when she is in normal mode, her spirit bar will only regenerate if certain actives are used, so when she is in Celestial Fox mode, her spirit bar will automatically regenerate 1 orb when you kill a target or after using 9 commands. Do note that breaking doors or boxes in Celestial Fox Mode also recovers the spirit bar.
    • This is indicated by a small black fire surrounding her after the target dies.
    • She also gets healed (roughly 2% HP) for every enemy you kill.
  • She also gain an attack speed, movement and jump speed, critical bonus( 5% stack for maximum 5 stacks) and casting time of skills will be shortened . Values are to be tested.




Awakening Bead

Ara's 3rd Awakening Bead

Like Chung, Ara 3rd awakening bead looks different. However, it can be obtained just like any other bead. The main reason it looks different is to indicate that her Celestial Fox Mode is ready and fully functional.





Movements

Ara is the only character that has various types of movement. She can:

  • Double Jump (Lightly jump up higher than the norm)
    • Press U.jpgU.jpg.
  • Air Dash (Run on air)
    • While unable to jump as high as Eve, she can dash farther mid-air than Eve in one dash.
    • Press U.jpg, then L.jpgL.jpg or R.jpgR.jpg to make Ara run on the air. Holding the L.jpg or R.jpg button (respectively) will make her continue running on air. Same thing occurs when holding L.jpg/R.jpg while dashing off a platform.
  • Forward Jump (Quickly bounce forward)
    • While dashing or air dashing, U.jpgU.jpg.


Spirit Energy

A bar spirit located below her MP.

A system only exclusive to Ara.
Ara has a unique combo system which involves using Spirit Energy. Spirit Energy is shown as beads below your HP bar. New players start with a 4 bead gauge, but can expand by 1 bead every 10th level (e.g. level 20 will give you 6 beads, level 30 will give you 7 beads) up to 10 beads. After Ara Balance, she will start with max beads.


Spirit Energy depletes when using certain skills/active skills. It can also be replenished by using certain skills/active skills such as Shadow Rising or Gain Force.

Skill Linking

A system only exclusive to Ara.
Ara is able to cancel active skills by using another skill/active skill right before the previous skill used ends. This will cancel the active skill's final hit which prevents KD, but also gains extra Spirit Energy depending on the skill. For example, if you used Shadow Knot (which usually gains 1 spirit energy when used) and cancel with Tiger Claw, you will gain 5 Spirit Energy instead (1 from using Shadow Knot + 4 from cancel bonus as stated in description).

Finally, after filling your gauge between 5-10 beads, you can unleash certain skills which requires no MP but instead depletes all Spirit Energy and deals damage multiplied by the amount of beads collected such as; Falling Dragon, Suppression : Bond and Swallow Assault.

Way of the Sword


When playing Elsword, there will be an additional gauge below the skill hotkeys. This Way of the Sword(Also known as WotS) gauge will enable you to activate "Aura of Vitality" or "Spirit of Destruction" for a period of time.

Depending on the type of combo attack (e.g. Z and X key moves) or skill you use, the gauge will lean towards vitality or destruction. While in either "Aura of Vitality" or "Aura of Destruction", you will receive special benefits.

Note that the system they use is not what what it may appear to be at first; vitality-based attacks take away vitality from the gauge, leaning the gauge towards destruction; destruction-based attacks take away destruction from the gauge, leaning the gauge towards vitality; this is why only attacks that use the gauge area affected in the respective aura.
