Every character in Elsword has their own unique features that set them apart from other characters.

ECP System

ECP (Energy of Colorless Point) is a system exclusive to Rose. The system interface is displayed below the MP bar.

User Interface

ECP Gauge

The ECP gauge will recover 5 points per second. ECP skills will use ECP points instead of MP. ECP points will also be consumed when switching weapons during combos.
Once the gauge is consumed all the way until the red bar, Over Strike will be activated. You can not use ECP skills while Over Strike is active, but Weapon Switching is still allowed. Maximum ECP amount is 70 and it is possible to activate Over Strike instantly by using any 2 ECP skills in a row, assuming that your gauge is full.

Over Strike

Indication of activating Over Strike/Over Strike being active.

While Over Strike is active, the damage of all combos and Over Strike skills will be boosted by 20% and critical damage will be boosted by 15%.

Weapon Switching


Rose has the choice of utilizing 4 different firearms: Revolvers, Muskets, Auto-guns, or Hand Cannons. For manual switching, press 'V' key (default) to switch to the next weapon in a clockwise direction.

  • Revolvers: Basic weapons of Rose. Fires quick singular shots at set intervals. Critical activation chance is high and critical damage is increased by 25%. The weapon is mid-range.
  • Musket: Similar to Revolvers but does more damage, fires slower, has the longest range, and will penetrate through all enemies within range.
  • Auto-Guns: Firearm which fires quick multiple shots which burns 2 MP each at set intervals but damage is the lowest and range is about the same as Hand Cannons.
  • Hand Cannons: Firearm which deals the highest damage and is also the slowest but range of the blast is a bit lower than Revolvers.

During the RoX.png combo, you are able to switch weapons by holding V and tapping the respective arrow key.

Weapon Locking

You can lock up to 2 specfic weapons if you dislike using them. Locked weapons will not be switched to if you switch with the 'V' Key. To lock weapons, enter your equipment page ('U' default) and right click the weapon icon that you want to lock. If the combo extension uses the specfic weapon that you have locked, the weapon will only be switch during the combo and changed back to the original weapon you were using.

Character Systems

Way of the Sword

When playing Elsword, there will be an additional bar below the mana gauge called Way of the Sword. This bar has 10 segments that, by default, contain 5 red Destruction slots and 5 blue Vitality slots, and depending on your actions, the bar will lean towards one color or 'aura' (from right to left for Destruction, from left to right for Vitality), replacing the other aura's slots. As long as an aura has at least one slot in the bar filled, you will receive special benefits depending on which aura you currently have active. The "Aura of Destruction" is selected by default, and you can switch between it and the "Aura of Vitality" by using the V key.

Depending on the type of skill you use, the bar will fill towards the right with blue Vitality slots or towards the left with red Destruction slots:

  • Flexibility/Tenacity skill: 1 slot
  • Strength skill: 2 slots
  • Bravery skill: 3 slots

Note that skills fill the slots contrary to their mode: vitality-based skills fill the bars with destruction slots; destruction-based skills fill the bar with vitality slots.

If the bar is filled completely by either aura's slots, the aura for the other mode will deactivate and you will enter a neutral stance with no benefits when it is toggled on, until at least 1 slot is re-gained for that mode. As such, the bar acts as a balancing mechanic so over-using one mode's skills can prevent that mode's aura from being active.
