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


A special system for Chung which utilize the usage of cannonballs to aid him in combat.


Chung's old ammunition supply icon. Full and empty

Chung's Ammunition Supply is one of his most notable and interesting features. Many of his skills are ammo-reliant. Skills such as Lunatic Blow use up all of Chung's ammo, but increase in power based on how much ammo was used. Other skills such as Aiming Shot use only one. Many of Chung's X.png attacks use ammo too.

To reload your ammo, stand still. This reload animation is affected by Attack Speed. You can also reload by using certain skills or combos, such as Z.pngZ.png(DZ.png)Z.png.

Each job path has Passives that will aid you with Cannonball management:

After the 2015 Character Revamp, using Awakening with any number of beads will completely refill all of Chung's cannonballs upon activation.

Berserk Mode

Note Chung's change of appearance in Berserk Mode

Chung's third awakening bead starts off being covered in chains. This does not prevent you from gaining it like any other awakening bead. It changes appearance when Berserk Mode is ready.
When Berserk Mode is activated, Chung is enveloped in his full Freiturnier armor (including the helmet) stored inside his suit's Guardian Stone, a special object that increases his fighting ability. The base benefits of Berserk Mode are:

Furthermore, each job path has Passives that enhance Awakening Mode and Berserk Mode:

  • CCTiny.png Comet Crusader's Berserker's Strength increases Physical Damage, Max HP, and Max MP based on the number of beads used to Awaken. (Berserk Mode giving the highest Stat Boost output).
  • DCTiny.png Deadly Chaser's Tussle Technique grants a chance to enter Berserk Mode when Awakening with 1 or 2 Beads.
    • DCTiny.png Deadly Chaser's Intense Showtime reduces the MP cost and Cooldown of Skills while in Berserk Mode.
      • FPTiny.png Fatal Phantom's Phantom Shooter makes Cannonball commands to inflict [Chaser's Mark],
        Hitting foes with this Debuff using Cannonball Skills will grant you [Prepared Chaser] Buff,
        Increasing both Awakening Charge rate and the chance to enter Berserk Mode when Awakening with 1 or 2 Beads.
        • FPTiny.png Fatal Phantom's Death Wish will increase Magical Damage while in Berserk Mode and also,
          If HP is under 60%, any Awakening is guaranteed to activate Berserk Mode.
  • TTTiny.png Tactical Trooper's Reaction Gloves increases Damage Reduction based on the number of beads used to Awaken.
    (Berserk Mode giving the highest Reduction output).

Heavy Stance

Whenever Chung is hit while he has a blue outline (e.g., the third attack of the Z.pngZ.pngZ.png combo), he switches to a guarding stance which gives 40% damage reduction. However, he will stagger after guarding around 5-6 hits or an attack that inflicts Power Stun.

While guarding, Chung can counterattack.

  • Press Z.png to swing your cannon and inflict 239% Physical damage while knocking the target down. This can be cancelled immediately by dashing.
  • Press X.png to fire a short blast in both directions with invulnerability and inflict 366% Magical damage. If used at point-blank, it can hit twice. This knocks down (although with appropiate scenery or very high Attack Speed, can catch afterwards) and uses one cannonball. If you have no cannonballs, the Z.png attack is used instead.

Heavy Tanking

While Countering, is possible for Chung to reset his Heavy Stance hit count, allowing him to withstand a theorically infinite number of hits.
To perform this, perform any counter or use a Skill right as Chung is struck by an attack, this will interrupt Chung's action and refresh his Heavy Stance.

  • This is easier done with Z.png Counter or Skills, furthermore, attacks that hit extremely fast are the easiest to continually tank, provided the player has a quick finger.
  • Comparatively, X.png Counter is the hardest since it provides Invulnerability, which will ruin the sequence if used frames out of tempo, however, the Cannon Burst will occur everytime Chung resets Heavy Stance, potentially inflicting huge damage agaisnt nearby Super Armored enemies.

Some job paths have Passives that will enhance Heavy Stance:

Non-flinch attacks don't contribute to Heavy Stance's hit threshold, but their damage will still be lowered nonetheless.

Heavy Stance take precedence over Super Armor. Even in a Super Armor state, Chung can still enter Heavy Stance.

Evasive Counter

When Chung gets knocked down, if you have at least one cannonball, press X.png to shoot the floor and flinches foes, if no Cannonballs are avaible, Z.png counter is used. If Chung falls on his back, he'll use the shot to recoil back to his feet, marginally behind his spot pre-Knocked Down.

If Chung falls on his front, he'll use the shot to recoil front far away ahead from his Knock Down spot, passes through objects and enemies.

Both variants deal 430% Magical Damage.

Tips and Details

  • Strangely, Chung's combo Heavy Stance's can withstand hits by behind, whereas Iron Paladin's Guard Heavy Stance cannot.
  • Chung falls noticeably faster than all the other characters. This makes it harder for others to do combos on him which require the opponent to be launched.
  • Chung can more quickly reload his ammo by tapping the left or right key just after he had reloaded a cannonball. This also works for his idle-reload.
  • If Chung activates a Special Active when he's attacked while guarding with Heavy Stance, the skill will be canceled, but MP will be consumed, cooldown time will begin, and skill delay will apply. This trick can also be used with Awakening Beads, allowing Chung to escape or start a combo.
  • Chung's Specialization A stat will affect the MP cost of all skills, including Hyper Active skills.


  • Oddly, "Freiturnier" is German for "free tournament."
  • When awakened, Chung shouts special actives' names instead of calmly stating them.
  • Chung was the first character to have a system related to consuming a certain number of awakening beads.

Character Systems

Way of the Sword

When playing as Elsword, you will have access to a special gauge known as Way of the Sword. This gauge will enable you to activate Aura of Vitality or Aura of Destruction for a period of time. Depending on the type of commands (Z.png/X.png) or skills you use, the gauge will lean towards either vitality or destruction.

While the Aura of Vitality is active, you will gain more MP from vitality-based attacks, while the MP cost for vitality-based skills will be reduced. Your speed will also be increased. While the Aura of Destruction is active, all destruction-based attacks and skill will deal vastly more damage.

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 will receive benefits while in their respective aura.
