Welcome to deviantART's unofficial group for the Korean MMORPG, Elsword. I suggest reading this if you're confused about what Elsword is, or the rules.

Note: Read this if you have a question, it might be answered here. Only ask if you can't find your answer here.

What is Elsword?
Elsword is a side-scrolling fighting MMORPG developed by KoG Studios, who also developed Grand Chase (now shut down).

Elsword is also the name of one of the playable characters.

Can I play?
There are multiple servers available to play Elsword on. All the servers are listed here (updated as of September 10, 2015). If it's not, please leave a message with a link to the server on the front page and it'll get added as soon as the message is seen, thank you.

Note: Some websites may not work if you live outside the region. Some servers IP block outside regions.

Hong Kong
North America
United Kingdom
Latin America

There are registration guides out there for some of the servers (especially for those in Asia), but you'll have to look for those yourself.

If you want to play with someone in one of the Elsword servers, ask around, you might find someone who plays the same server as you.

Everyone is free to join the group, whether you play the game, are an artist of the game, or even just a fan of the game. You don't even need to have played the game in order to join.


1. All art must be yours. Art theft will not be tolerated. De/motivational posters and renders are NOT allowed unless it is drawn by you. If your submission was rejected but you did draw the artwork, please link to proof.
a. Banners, signatures, etc. are allowed, just submit them to the folder of the character depicted.
b. Please submit your art to the correct folder. It will be moved if it's not in the correct folder, however. It's nice if you would submit to the right folder in the first place, as this creates less work in the long run.
c. Screenshots only belong to the Misc. folder. If they are submitted elsewhere, they will not be accepted. If this happens to be the case, you are always free to resubmit it to the right folder.
d. Due to a Grand Chase character being released in Elsword, it should be noted that only the Elsword iteration of the character, Elesis, is allowed. With the closing of the Grand Chase servers, however, this rule may be subject to change.
e. While mature content is allowed, it must be behind a mature content tag. It will be checked and if it is not, it will not be accepted.

2. No flaming, trolling, bashing, etc. You will be removed/blocked depending on the severity of your actions.

3. This is obvious, but Elsword-related art only. This is limited to characters, monsters, and locations in the game itself. Artwork featuring other characters not from the game itself is allowed as long as it contains at least one Elsword character. Even if it is a small part of them. Even if it's just their foot showing.

4. Have fun.

In Conclusion
If you have any questions, concerns or comments, leave them on the front page or note a founder/co-founder/contributor. Same deal regarding the game itself, as they will probably be able to answer your questions regarding the game. Just don't repeatedly bother them.

There's a Veteran Commander skill called Overheat Mode Activated, idk if it increases the Hp reduction to my VC or just the damage, I need help
It's been brought to attention that the NA Costume Contest for 2015 is having some issues with art theft. Apparently, people are stealing entries from 2014 (and elsewhere) and uploading them as their own. If you see an entry there you recognize that may have been stolen, contact the original artist about it if you can and let them know. Additionally, create a ticket and report the entry(s) to the staff if possible. (Here's a thread on their forums looking out for such theft.) Also, if you're not entirely sure if it's actually stolen or the original artist submitted an older entry, ask! You'll find the truth immediately.

I also want this to be a reminder that stealing someone else's art and claiming it as your own is never okay. You will get caught eventually, and you will be punished for it. Artists put in their own time and effort to create something wonderful, and it is nothing more than a complete and utter insult to see someone take something they made and claim it for their own (or even worse, scribble all over it). It is also what discourages artists to create content out of fear of it being stolen. They are the very people who create stuff you can enjoy, and you can do so respectfully without resorting to stealing it.

On another note, if you believe someone in this group has been uploading work that is not theirs and claiming it as their own, send the group or me directly a note with the offending work(s) and a link to the original(s). People found to have been doing this will have the works and the person removed from the group. (Just no false reports, you may be the one getting in trouble instead).

Play fair, all, and be on the lookout. Enjoy the rest of the day!

Thank you to ShiyumiChan for bringing this up, I hope the issue will be resolved for you and everyone else. I really hate art thieves with a passion may they all burn in Veteran Commander's flames of glory.

Hey guys i'm thinking of getting a raven. What job class should I get?
FloDoodling Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
i think i suggest over taker->0reckless fist
because the combos and damage is just too.... scary.

Sword Taker -> Blade Master is good if you want more advanced combos and classy looking skill

Weapon Taker->Veteran Commander is also nice but you need to watch your health or you will kill yourself....
