North American gamers are finally able to get their hands on Elsword Online which is a side-scroller similar to Grand Chase and Fists of Fu. With a manga series already running in Asia, Elsword Online is a popular franchise which offers players story-driven action with various co-op missions. There’s also a PvP mode where gamers can battle each other and compete for rankings. Players should equip their character with an assortment of gear, accessories, and cosmetic items earned as you progress!
Elsword is a master swordsman with powerful ruckus attacks. He can deal damage, but also adsorb a lot of it.
Aisha is a magician who relies on active skills in deal damage to the opponents. Armed with a staff, she can attack multiple targets at once.
Rena is a trained marksman whose favored weapon is the bow and arrow. She is also capable of kicking opponents who get too close.
Elsword Online is essentially set in the usual Kill X, Collect Y, go to Z fashion. You can acquire various quests in town, and then proceed to the outskirts of the town where you can create or join dungeon groups. Apart from PvP, all of the action happens in instanced 4-players dungeons. It is easy to go from point A to point B killing everything in-between, including a boss at the end. Before joining a dungeon players are able to select a difficulty which has many effects including number and strength of the monsters as well as potential rewards.
A big part of the fun here comes from doing them in a group, as repeating dungeons solo turns them into a chore fairly quickly. The action shines in this instance, with flashy moves flying left and right, and bosses often going down to your teammates before you can even lift a finger. The fighting happens in smaller arenas where you either compete in a free-for-all, or in a team death match in which the objective is to have the best kill count. Taking down a player takes a long time due to humongous amounts of hit-points, which tend to make matches longer, and slightly more tiresome than they need to be.
