Check out our new guide translated by Cissnei in the Guides section, a helpful comparison of the Old Mana Necklace vs. New Mana Necklace on KR!

Hi all,

Here at Babel, we have done a bit more research into the iPIN Regulations. For those of you who are unaware (read two posts below for more context), KR Elsword is moving away from KSSN to iPINs (Internet Personal Identification Number) as a way of registry.

To obtain an iPIN, you need to register with your KSSN and an official document with your name and KSSN (passport, identity card, etc.). Alternatively, you may apply with your KSSN in person. For any user under the age of 14, you will require not only your own ID, but also your parents’ ID in order to obtain your iPIN. Aboard applicants will require their passport number in addition to their KSSN. The iPIN will be good as your internet identifier as a Korean Citizen, not only for Nexon, but for a variety of Korean internet services as well.

Unfortunately, this makes things significantly harder for foreigners wishing to play KR Elsword. Unlike a KSSN, which is issued to every citizen in Korea, an iPIN is strictly optional. This means that a good number of the iPINs will be registered to players on Elsword already. Consequentially, while it was possible to use Google or another service to find a KSSN since the number of KSSNs actually registered to Nexon accounts was still very low, it will be extremely difficult to find an iPIN through brute luck that is not already associated with an account. iPINs are also more likely to be guarded closely since they are used for a variety of online services – thus, it may not even be possible to find one online.

Babel is currently working on collecting iPINs from their Korean connections who are willing to donate them to foreigners, as it may still be possible to make multiple accounts per iPIN as with KSSN (3 is typically the limit).

As we need to know the demand for iPINs, please express your interest by tweeting to @ConspireOnAisha or commenting on this post. Also note that the use of the iPIN may not be completely free, as we will likely require a one-time donation to the provider of the iPIN for use of the iPIN.




A big round of applause to our new Korean translator, Cissnei!

Favorite Character:

About Me:
I study economics at the University of Edinburgh and I want to marry Renaaaaaaaaa!!!

We’re all very glad to have you aboard.

Also, Gwenny Chiffoniataeko Marikake, our site owner (better known as Kenny in some spheres) will now be doubling as an English Editor. Yaaaaaaaay. (Seriously, though, all of you need to start calling him by his formal name from now on. Because it is so pretty! Like me! I am so pretty!)


Hello NEXON users,

Since the regulation on using resident registration numbers (KSSN) has been taking effect since August 18th, we are giving you a notice about ‘Regulation on collecting and using resident registration numbers’ in advance.

According to this regulation, resident registration numbers now cannot be used or collected except for the following cases:

  1. If it is a listed identification institution.
  2. When it is permitted by legislation.
  3. When it is unavoidable to provide a network service without collecting or using it and when it is officially notified by the KCC (Korea Communications Commission).

With this, for 6 months of guidance period, under a procedure that identification is compelled, NEXON KOREA will regulate using and collecting resident registration numbers and we will do our best to provide another safe way to identify by using I-PIN (Internet Personal Identification Number).

When collecting resident registration number ceases, you can no longer identify yourself with it. So we urge you to take notice of this notification so that you will not have any problems using our services.

Thank you.


In an unorthodox move, we have decided on two separate winners, one for the Banner and one for the Logo. Each winner will receive 25m, payable by LuzCeleste (for the winners, please make arrangements to catch her in-game ASAP! She will be in contact with you soon.)

Without further ado, here are our winners!

LOGO by Sylence

Our team really enjoyed the classic feel of this logo. Very comic-like to reflect the origins of Elsword, and done in the traditional colors of Elsword – good job to Sylence!


BANNER by Sennyu:

Our team loved the black-tie spy theme of this banner! The Babel team only wishes they could be as cutting-edge and cool as Elsword, Eve and Aisha in this banner.


Finally, an honorable mention. While TrickArt won’t be receiving any prize, I wanted to showcase the amazing submission we got!

Banner/Logo by TrickArt:

We were impressed by how well the colors and lightning blended, as well as the art style of the stock images. That’s some skillful blending there! (I laughed at the logo too)


We were also impressed by the logo that Sennyu sent in, but it unfortunately didn’t make the final cut:

But still, so cute!


Thank you to all of the entrants. We were really stunned by the high quality of the submissions we got this time around. Congratulations to the winners, as well!






Thank you for all of your submissions to the Banner and Logo Contest! We are currently deliberating on the results, and will announce a winner this weekend!

However, our chief Korean translator, Roo, is currently recovering from LASIK Surgery, which limits our ability to translate from KR to English.  We may be able to push out a few updates, but they will be considerably slower than usual. Thank you for your understanding, and we all wish Roo a fast recovery!
