Magic Knight

[A swordsman with magical powers]


  • In-game Version
  • Nexon Version

A swordsman that uses both his sword and magic to fight.

Elsword realizes he has natural talent in using fire magic and decides to incorporate that talent to use as support.

With his new skill in fire magic, Elsword is able to control fire magic and project sword illusions, enabling him to use a variety of tactics.

If there's anyway to support his fighting, he should be able to use variety of tactics, but he doesn't have any good ideas.
Perhaps he can find a hint in this new place.

When Aisha sees Elsword changing the trajectory of the totem's fire in an attempt to dodge, she tells Elsword that he seems to have a gift in fire magic.
It was an amazing discovery, but Elsword wasn't too pleased. He's a swordsman. He had no use for magic.
He acted like he was not interested, but the word 'gift' made his heart flutter.

As Elsword sees Lizardmen using both spears and curses together, he begins to think of a way to incorporate his so-called talent in magic to help him in battle.
A path that will diverge from his family... Though he is afraid, if he manages to use magic to help him in battle, it will allow him to fight more freely.
Let's talk to Bethma Alchemist, Chacha Buch, to hear more about how Lizardmen fight.

With help from both Chacha Buch and Aisha, Elsword manages to learn a lot about magic, but he still lacks control. At this rate, he might accidently attack his friends before it's any useful in battle.
Aisha advices a disappointed Elsword that if he trains somewhere with similar energy, it should help him control his power better. Let's follow her advice and train for better control at Dragon Nest.
