Webzen has announced that the initial beta phase, which should last for about a week, has begun for ELOA: Elite Lord of Alliance. The free to play hack and slash game will end up having a character wipe at the end of this beta phase, but until then anyone can sign up on the Webzen site and play right now.

Along with the initial beta test, the ELOA team is organizing a login event, bug catch event, and guide creation event which will offer players the chance to win a variety of prizes including inventory scrolls, transform scrolls, potions and more.

“During the initial beta phase, players will have the opportunity to experience the core system of the game, the “Triple Battle Stance System”, in which each class will have 3 battle stances to switch between in real time. Each battle stance has its own unique features for playing solo, in a party, and PvP. Based on this feature, players can enjoy a total of 24 skills per each battle stance as they please.”

Let us know what you think of the game below.

    All i can say is mana simulator, u need to make lots of gold to buy pots or make them through crafting , i reached max lvl end game-ish gear and still have mana problems with full mana regen on all weapons and rings etc and even using the combo mana regen, still lacking to not use 20+ mana pots within 1 dungeon run unfortunately. You have so many skills but not the mana to use them one rotation leaves you almost low and all skills use close to 1000 mana with 13k max mana 8 skills on 3 different weapon sets gg. Fun game the boss repeating themselves over and over again can get a little annoying but helpful because you know what skills they are using. Spent 100g on mana pots to just use them in a few dungeon runs, healing uses a lot so don’t expect to even support your team because a full rotation of just support and not using your stuns and knockdown skills use about 7k mana and then every 1325 per heal (on a 2 second cooldown timer)

    As generic a game as it gets. By now that is probably one of Webzen’s requirement when buying the rights to publish KR MMORPG in the West.

    Seriously guys, their games this past years have been total flops, most of them shutdown within a year. I don’t even know how this company is still alive. Get on with the times Webzen, your games look and play as if were released in early 2000s.

    Just buy Diablo 3 on sale for 19.99 USD and save yourself the trouble.

      Or play Path of Exile. Free and the spiritual successor to Diablo 2, whereas Diablo 3 has been severely dumbed down.

    Game is pretty alright. I enjoy the Diablo-esque gameplay. I like the stance-dancing mechanic for situational moments or just needing to get all your skills off. Not sure about the other classes but as a Knight leveling was pretty ok since I could just pull a whole bunch of groups together and nuke them down. Same thing when doing 1-2 person dungeons so far.

    if you like grinding, long grinding quest leveling this is the game for you, if you dont like that dont even look at it cause it takes ages to level up

    • Rachnera on October 14, 2015

      what? It’s insanely fast to level up, are you even playing the same game? it literally took me 4 hours to reach max level in the beta which is 25. It’s so fast it’s laughable.

    Very sketchy and untrustworthy situation. The generic nonsensical name doesn’t exactly help either.

    I tried this as Inspirit and wasn’t impressed, played maybe an hour. I wanted to try the ELOA version because of the controversy to see if it’s the better game as they claim, and so far it actually is. I’m having more fun than I thought I would. It’s not good, but it’s fun enough in short bursts.

    How many names this game has?
    I tried this as “Inspirit”.

    • Nope on October 13, 2015

      Inspirit was a private sever. Illegal

      • Derpina on October 13, 2015

        No it isn’t. It was fully licensed at in relation with KR. They even had KR parent co. Give out beta keys (how I got in)… Peivate hackers can’t do that…(they had them distributed in mmo sites as well). They refused p2w and that pissed off KR so KR cut them off illegaly but publisher too small to fight back. Now its in p2w webzen hands. Enjoy fail. Support private servers and hackers

          “Support private servers and hackers”, such a basic recipient of humanity you are. Would you like perfect strangers to earn part of your money after working your ass off day and night and not giving you a dime? Keep up the good work by thinking like that, no one gonna invite you tea.
