Root Knight

[A knight who reaches for the essence to become stronger]

Background

  • In-game Version
  • Nexon Version

The knight who resonates with the El and reaches for its essence.

Elsword, finding his power lacking, remembers how he subconsciously resonated with the El to use its power back in Ruben.

He creates the support equipment, 'Sephira', with the magic stones found in Bethma to allow him to resonate with the El better.

Elsword successfully harnesses the power of the El with the help of the support equipment.

With his newfound method to resonate with the El, Elsword resumes his journey while protecting his friends and seeking the stolen El.

Description

As he continues on his journey, Elsword finds his power sorely lacking. As Elsword rethinks about his past battles, he remembers the battle in Ruben.
'That monster that tried to take the El from Ruben first. If only I can use that power I used when I faced him...'
As he tried to recall his faint memory, he feels something familiar coming from Bethma Village.

Description

The El Shard was nowhere to be found. They say it's because the magic stones in the mines contain El energy, but that doesn't feel right.
Perhaps if he used the magic stones to heighten his senses it should help in finding the El.
Let's ask the Bethma Accessory Shop Keeper to create a support equipment.

Description

When Elsword arrives in Bethma, he realizes that the energy he felt is much stronger. It doesn't seem like his friends noticed, but he can feel it as someone who used this power. It's El energy without a doubt.
Is there an El shard that wasn't found in this area? He cannot just ignore it as the member of the El Search Party. Let's begin the investigation.

Description

With Richian's help, Elsword was able to create the sub equipment, 'Sephira'. Though he couldn't resonate completely like before, he could use Sephira to resonate better and use the power of the El.
If he can use this power, he can find the El and protect his friends better. He must do better.

Trivia

  • The term root in the class's name in this case refers to an origin point, such as would be used in terms such as something being the 'root cause' of something.
    • This draws similar primal holy implications as the 'Prophecy of the World's Root' presented in the story.
  • According to the Elsword NA website, Sephira is a word which originates from Kabbalah, a form of Jewish mysticism. Sephira is the singular form of Sephiroth, which are the 10 attributes through which God (The Infinite) reveals itself.[1]
    • In-game, Sephira will idly hover behind Elsword until you enter Awakening Mode, at which point its wings will grow slightly and it will hover at his back, triggering El's Resonance within him, the same phenomenon originally seen in Elsword's tutorial scenes.
  • Strangely, neither Root Knight or Sacred Templar gain the usual blue eyes associated with El's Resonance as seen in Knight Emperor and Genesis. It is possible their assimilation into the Giant El plays a role in this however.
    • This is further supported by the fact that Adrestia does not gain blue eyes either, despite also continually drawing on El's Resonance.
