Irvine, Calif., August 3rd, 2022 - KOG Games, a leading developer and publisher of popular free-to-play action MMORPG Elsword, is making summer a fun time to get into the game with numerous changes to their gameplay! 
Check out details for the Summer Update [
Players old and new will be benefitting from the numerous changes coming this summer, with one of the biggest ones being related to the Shared Bank system. Elsword allows players to store items in a personal bank, but also a common bank where other characters on their account can take the items, great for passing along potions or even equipment to power them up more easily! Prior to this update, the Shared Bank system was only available to purchase for K-Ching, but for the summer update, all players will have access to the system! 
Another one of the summer update’s biggest changes will be towards the Amethystine Prophecy set, the game’s 2nd most powerful armor set. The armor set has 6 different color types with different effects for each one, but making the armor would make it usable only for that character. To go along with the Free Shared Bank change, the armor can now be bankshared, so now players can use it on any characters who can equip it! Even better, the Spectral Amethysts items that can be used to power up the set further are also banksharable, making it easier to upgrade the set to its max potential! 
There are numerous other changes such as: 

  • Normal Dungeon Titles will be accessible by all characters on the account. 
  • Master Road Dungeon accessories will be bank shareable 
  • Varnimyr Dungeons will only drop Shining Mystic Stones 
  • The powerful Polarize and Adaptation stats will have their limit increased 

But summer is a time for something even bigger! A new Raid dungeon is on its way to Elsword, giving players even more challenges to face, and one of the game’s characters, Laby, will be receiving her 4th Path update in the near future!
