|DUNGEON PLAY BASICS
Dungeon play is the core of Elsword Online. You’ll find that each dungeon plays a role in the story, and you will eventually get to play all of them. You can play through a dungeon alone, or in a party of up to four players.
Dungeons are best played with a party! While logged on to the game with your character, click the Dungeon button on the right side of the screen. This will open the Dungeon selection interface which lets you choose a particular dungeon and its specifications. Pressing “Queue for Dungeon” or F8 will automatically match you with a team of players, or allow you to start the Dungeon alone.
The indicated number of players for a dungeon is the minimum number of players the party matching system requires before starting the Dungeon instance.
Your character must meet a Dungeon’s level requirements to enter through party matching.
Appropriate Item Level
Your equipped items must meet the Dungeon’s item level requirement.
Starting a Dungeon
Pressing ‘Queue for Dungeon’ or the F8 key will launch the party matching system. The system will try to create a party with up to 4 members of different classes who selected the same Dungeon. You may also choose ‘Start with current members’ to go immediately into a Dungeon by yourself or with your current party members.
In the maps showing Dungeon locations, the Q icon will appear over Dungeons where you may accomplish tasks in order to complete a quest in your list. Let Q drive your adventure!
Party by Invitation
Another way to form a party is by sending out a party invite. You can choose one of several ways to invite other players.
- Right-click on the other character you want to invite and select the invite button.
- Invite players using the chat command /invite [nickname] [server]. (Last part may be omitted if you and the other player are in the same server.)
Example: /invite Elsword Solace or /invite Elsword
- Right-click over your own character and click ‘Add Party’. Type the nickname of the character you want to invite.
- Right-click the name of the character you want to invite from your friends list.
Once the party is formed, only the party leader can invite players into the group. If the party has less than 4 members, you may also use the party matching system to find additional members.
Inside the Dungeon
Remember these pointers when playing a dungeon.
- Complete a Dungeon to receive ED, items, and EXP for your character. Dungeon progress cannot be saved and the player will be penalized if they exit the dungeon without completing it.
- Higher-level maps will contain elite monsters that drop more or better items than normal monsters.
- Players can use Resurrection Stones to revive themselves or other party members in a dungeon.
- Defeat all the monsters in the stage to proceed to the next stage in the dungeon map.
Monsters in a dungeon will drop ED and random items based on your individual effort in defeating them. The items that you collected will be listed in the rewards summary shown at the end of a dungeon instance.
Mini Boss and Final Boss
The mini map displays how far along you are in the dungeon, and how many stages are left before you meet the boss.
The mini-boss appears in the middle of the Dungeon run and will drop a Life Essence when defeated, allowing you to instantly recover 30% of your HP. The final boss always appears at the very end of the Dungeon, and will drop a Life Essence that restores 50% of your HP when defeated.
