Elsword Online Review
By Toan Layne
Elsword Online (Elsword for short) is a 2. 5D side-scrolling brawler MMORPG developed by KOG Studios and published by Nexon, Gamania, NHN Japan, KOG Games, Asiasoft, Netmarble, Level Up! Games, Gameforge, and Garena, in various regions around the world. For the NA and EU regions, the publishers are KOG Games and Gameforge, respectively. The game was released on December 27, 2007 in South Korea, on March 23, 2011 in NA, and on July 24, 2013 in EU. Similar games include KOG Studios’ previous title Grand Chase. Elsword is available through the official website and Steam (for NA players). Gameplay is actually very similar to that of Grand Chase, but with sharper graphics. Given that Elsword was originally designed as a reboot of Grand Chase, it’s not surprising that the two games are similar in art style and gameplay.
Do you like anime?
Elsword has a distinctive anime art style, with gorgeous cel-shaded graphics that I personally enjoyed a lot. The game takes place in the mystical land of Elrios, which was brought to life by the powerful El Stone gem. However, when the El Stone is stolen, trouble abounds, and our hero Elsword and his friends go on a mission to recover the priceless gem.
There isn’t much to the character creator in Elsword. There also isn’t much character customization. Players will choose a pre-made character to play, and they will get a choice between several outfits. These characters represent the classes in the game, and there is some variety to be had. You have Elsword, Aisha, Rena, Raven, Eve, Chung, Ara Haan, Elesis, and Add.
Once in the game, players will control their characters using the arrow keys to move, Z and X to attack, and A, S, D, C, Q, W, and E to cast abilities. It’s pretty straightforward stuff, but the game becomes more complex when you add in the combos. You have regular “tap Z four times” combos, and you have more complex combos that involve the movement keys as well. This is one aspect that sets Elsword apart. The gameplay is completely skill-based and players have to tactically aim their attacks and chain combos to effectively defeat their opponents. Besides the control scheme and brawler-style gameplay, Elsword plays like any other MMORPG; with quests, inventory management, leveling, vendors, and so on.
As players level up, they gain SP, which can then be spent on powering up and unlocking new skills in the skill tree. Some skills have a higher SP cost than others, and sometimes unlocking one skill will block another. Players gain 4 SP from Levels 2 to 9, which then increases by 1 with each ten-level increment, up to Level 79. Elsword also has a branching class system with multiple job advancements. Initially the player character starts off as is, but at Level 15, players begin their first class advancement. There are three choices at Level 15, and they require the completion of a specific chain of quests, dungeons, and events in order to activate the class. There is also a second class progression at Level 35, but with one rule: players do not have a choice between multiple classes.
Dungeons and Raid Bosses
Elsword has a ton of dungeons and much of the gameplay takes place in these instanced zones. Each dungeon has three difficulty levels, and they can be tackled either solo or with a group. The higher difficulty levels definitely require players to group up. However, there is a powerful matchmaking system that will not keep you waiting for long. On the highest difficulty, players will tackle the dungeon in a group of four. At the end of each dungeon, there is a ranking system which scores a player’s performance and awards loot. Also, players are introduced to dungeons straight from the get-go. I found this system to be very enjoyable, the added challenge making the game much more worthwhile. There are also raid bosses in the game that will require a party of 12 players to be defeated.
There are two types of PvP in the game: Sparring and Arena. Sparring, as the name suggests, is a practice session, where players can duke it out without any gain or loss. The Arena, on the other hand, is a ranked solo, 2v2, 3v3, or 4v4 battle which awards AP, the PvP currency, and awards and subtracts RP, which are points used to determine a player’s ranking. Ranks are used to determine how much AP a player earns from victories and who they’re matched up against. Using AP, players can purchase gems for their item sockets and item enhancements.
Elsword has a lot of small touches that make the game more enticing. First, there is the Monster Card System. By running dungeons, killing monsters, and defeating minibosses, players can find Monster Cards, which represent the monster or miniboss that dropped them. These cards can then be used in dungeons to summon said monster or miniboss to fight by your side. You also have the Random Mission System, which gives out randomized quests in order to keep dungeons interesting. These missions can add some extra spice to a dungeon, by challenging players to use a certain amount of MP by the end of the dungeon, or to use an ability a certain amount of times. Some other features you’ll find in Elsword include a Wedding System, item socketing/upgrading, a profession system, and pets and mounts.
Many players have complained that the cash shop in Elsword is imbalanced. With powerful items, skill-tree extensions, and skill enhancements, I can see why. While players can grind the cash shop currency in-game, there have been complaints that it is not a feasible option, and that a F2P player cannot compete with a P2P player. This is the one area where the developers have dropped the ball, as the cash shop sells power, not convenience. Simply put, those who spend more money in the cash shop have a huge edge in PvP. Individual skills can be upgraded with skill notes and costumes can be purchased for anywhere between $14-$35, or more. These costumes aren’t just cosmetic either; they boost stats. Cash shops should be pay-for-convenience, not pay-to-win.
Final Verdict – Good
I don’t think this review manages to capture the fun of Elsword. I felt very cozy playing it. I don’t know if it’s the art style, the music, or the fact that I’ve always wanted to be an anime girl… What? Anyway, it’s a very fun MMORPG that takes the classic formula and places it in a side-scrolling environment. Fans of Grand Chase and other brawler MMORPGs should definitely find something to like with Elsword. However, many players have complained about the imbalanced cash shop, which can give paying players a significant advantage, especially in PvP. Still, the game is fun and well worth a try.

Development History / Background:
Elsword Online was developed by South Korean game studio KOG Games, the same company best known for Grand Chase. Grand Chase was a huge success for KOG Games world-wide, which led to the development of a new and improved version of Grand Chase, called Elsword Online. The two games are remarkably similar and even share several character names. Elsword Online was built using a proprietary game engine by Kog Games, similar to the engine behind Grand Chase. The game reached over 50, 000 concurrent users in South Korea alone and the game’s success led to it being licensed in over half a dozen regions. The North American version is operated by the developer, KOG Games. The game also launched on Valve’s steam service on July 2, 2014.
