Elsword, the free to play game from KOG Games, launched their Critter’s Carnival and the event is open to players through April 28th. The Wild Rider has appeared and wreaked a little havoc and now it’s up to the players to find and tame the savage beast, while also having access to a number of other events during the carnival.
Want to take part? Here’s what you’ll have to do:
Find The Wild Rider – After defeating Evil Joaquin in the Laboratory of Alchemy dungeon, players still have to find the Wild Rider! However, not everyone who enters the lab has a chance of finding it. If our heroes are lucky enough to happen upon The Wild Rider, they better be ready to defeat it!
Acquire The Wild Rider’s Hideout Map – During the event period, players that log into Elsword will receive a Map with the location of the hideout in their in-game Mailbox after waiting one minute. This Map allows players to enter Joaquin’s Laboratory of Alchemy. Players will receive 4 of these maps daily.
Glave The Critter Tamer – Let Glave’s critter know-how give you the advantage over The Wild Rider. Glave offers the Soul Sealer Stone; a quick slot consumable item. Use it on the Wild Rider when it has less than 20% HP, and you will beat the critter instantly. But use it sooner than that and you’ll make the beast tougher to control. Successfully using the Soul Sealer Stone will also earn you either a Corrupted Wild Rider’s Soul or Pure Wild Rider’s Soul which can be used to acquire your own mount.
Crafting Wild Rider’s Soul – Bring 20 Wild Rider’s Soul Sculptures and the equivalent number of Mystery El Shards to Glave and generate a Corrupted Wild Rider’s Soul. This is a cube that contains a random time-limited or permanent mount. You can open it right away or keep collecting these to ultimately craft a Pure Wild Rider’s Soul which contains 1 permanent mount from a list of eight kinds.
Elsword’s shop has also seen the return of some popular and rare pets. If you missed them before, check them out now.
