Pet lovers, rejoice: Elsword Online
is adding a brand-new pet system to the game. Pet haters, rejoice: Elsword
is allowing you to torment furry balls of cuteness in order to turn them into killing machines.
Once players hit level 10, they can select a pet to help them in their journeys. Right now there are only two types of pets in the game -- Pocket Phoru and Ancient Phoru -- although Kill3rCombo
promises that more are coming soon. A pet can be trained as it grows through multiple stages of life, changing based on how the player treats it. Pets aid their masters with different types of attacks and buffs.
Kill3rCombo's Ben Colayco
sees the pet system as keeping in line with the overall tone of the game: "Introducing pets to Elsword
adds another dimension to the game and allows players to become fully immersed in the comic book style world. By echoing character evolution and growth within the pet system, we wanted to reinforce that Elsword
offers a unique and dynamic environment to players, while at the same time maintaining the key differentiators that set us apart, such as maturation of characters."
