Background

While traveling, Elsword decides to practice his magic skills so that he can become stronger. He goes to Vanessa in Velder for help, and she explains to him that he can start using runes instead of fireballs to increase his power. Soon Elsword starts to use the runes he got from training, and this allowed him to become a stronger magic knight, thus giving him the name, Rune Slayer.

Tips and Details

  • Strangely, Rune Slayer's >>ZZX combo does not have increased damage on an enemy affected by his Magic Chain passive, despite the former being a magical attack.
  • Unlike most other magical projectiles, Rune Slayer's Runes cannot be reflected completely. The runes will still go past enemies but will not deal damage if reflected.
    • Allies behind will receive damage from 'reflected' rune.


Trivia

  • In his concept art, his initial design was rejected as it had too many similarities to Magic Knight. They then completely redesign his outfit and personality to be more rugged and laid-back rather than knightly and serious like Lord Knight.
  • On Rune Slayer's runes, text reading "The Time Is Now" can be seen under the main symbol in small text.
  • Despite Sword Fire being moved to Magic Knight and Lodestar taking its place, it is still listed as one of Rune Slayer's Primary Skills.
