Elsword is a fantasy MMORPG set in the world from Elrios and its different regions. Most of the action takes place in the regions of Lurensia and Fluone, the two major continents of the world. It is on the world of Elrios that the power of the El was bequeathed to the land and its inhabitants.
Players in Elsword take the role of one of the characters in the story, such as Elsword, Eve, Aisha, Rena, Raven, Chung, Ara, Add, Lu/Ciel, Rose, Ain, Noah, and Laby. Unlike other MMOs, each character has their own backstory and questlines, but can have different Job progressions. Each character can choose a Job upon reaching Level 15.
For instance, Elsword can choose between the Sword Knight, Root Knight, Magic Knight, or Sheath Knight. Later at level 30, advanced classes can be selected. There is also Transcendence at Level 70, 3rd jobs, and Master class as the character continues to progress.
Key to the game mechanics in Elsword is the various modes and functions. Combat includes mastering the Awakening Mode, Fever, Mana Break, and Stoic Thresholds. The most powerful of these is the El Resonance, which can only be attained by characters that reach level 99.
Aside from gaining levels through combat, Elsword has other activities and goals to achieve. Dungeons can be discovered and unlocked, with some having multiple difficulty levels. There are Fishing and Pet expeditions, Professions, Wedding, El Search Party Collection, gaining Titles, as well as the Guilds. Guilds can be formed to acquire a Guild Base for Guild Expeditions and Guild Farming.
