Language:English • français • polski • português do Brasil • 中文(简体)‎

Every character in Elsword has their own unique features that set them apart from other characters.

Basic Information

Power System is a system exclusive to Ain which allows him to switch between "Cycle Magic" and "Creation Magic". When in default state, attacking enemies will increase the green bar. After the green bar is maxed out, it will turn blue and you will shift into Creation Mode. During this time, you will be able to switch between Cycle and Creation magic with the V key (default key).

Unlike other characters, Ain only has 1 bead for awakening. He however can awaken during his awakening and ascend another stage.

The bar below the MP bar is known as the Power Gauge. The bar will fill up when Ain is attacking or being attacked. When the gauge is full, his special system, Power will activate. Power has two modes: Power: Cycle MagicAinCycleIcon.png and Power: Creation Magic AinCreationIcon.png. When gaining Power, the default mode is known as El's Power: Circulating Magic. His two Power modes can be switched by pressing the [V] key (default key). only when the gauge is full. After the gauge is consumed, Power will no longer be active and you will switch back to El's Power: Circulating Magic. There is a cooldown of 3 seconds after switching.

Unlike other characters, Ain only has 1 bead for awakening, and will not receive a 20% damage bonus to his skills while in awakening. Once Ain awaken, his appearance and movement will change. He will also activates buffs depending on the phase of the awakening. Re-Awakening is possible when Ain is already in Awakening. When re-awakening, the awaken timer will reset, however receiving a awakening potion or 'Fever' will increase the timer. While in the 2nd and 3rd phase of awakening, filling the awakening orb will cause it to blink. (Effects that grant Phase 3 upon initial Awakening, like Ring of Fury, also cause it to blink. Wavering Faith does not cause it to blink, likely due to its reliance on the Seed of Chaos.) Speed, Critical, Maximize buffs at Stage 3 Awakening are multiplicative.

Awakening Stage All Attack Power All Speed Critical Maximize

  • This is reversed as Bluhen, giving an incomplete version of his Spiritualism wings in his first stage and an incomplete version of his crown in the second stage, replacing the back and head accessories respectively, while the third stage will give the promotional costume's appearance and complete his wings and crown.

Tips and Details

  • Unlike a Reckless Fist with Subliminal Rage, the duration of Ain's Awakening is always fixed upon activation as opposed to stacking on the pre-existing duration.
  • While all other melee attacks (including Abschluss) trigger Creation Mode's afterimage attacks, Ain's getup Z/X attack will trigger the projectiles instead.
  • If the Ring of Fury is equipped, Ain will automatically enter Awakening Stage 3 upon the first awakening. This also applies to Fever.
