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. Offending pieces will be removed without warning.
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. Similarly, only the Elsword iteration of the Dungeon Fighter Online character, Rose/Female Gunner, is allowed.
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.

By popular demand, we have made an NPC folder!
This folder is for you to fill with all your love of Elsword characters that can't be played. This includes town blacksmiths, pets, mounts, monsters you fight, Eve's summons, and even gijinka interpretations of weapons! ♥

If your artwork contains two or more NPCs, please submit it to the Pairings or Group folders instead.
Just added an Ain folder for all of you! Due time. He seems to be rather popular even though he isn't released yet.

Do I get to share any (elsword related) illustration anytime I want or should I get permission first before sharing? 
G123u Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2018  Student Artist
Please only submit Elsword content that you have created. If you want to share something that someone else has created, you can suggest them to submit it to the group. :D

Would a drawing of Add and his mother go under "Add", "Groups" or both?
Hi, Juki! Thank you for the question. I would say that since it involves a character other than Add, it would go under groups. Arguably, it could also go into 'Add' as she is neither a playable character or officially seen NPC-- there is some lenience on the subject, especially on how pivotal the character is in the piece. It is whatever you feel most comfortable with, but it is most safe to submit to 'groups' on all occasions there is more than one character in the piece.
