~ Japan VPN Section ~

Update : I wouldn’t recommend using free vpn server, due recent mass ban on some Game on Japan Server *Not limited to Elsword only*. So becarefull about it

It’s up to you how you can get any Japan VPN, but I will point free and paid service
Free : VPN Gate [http://www.vpngate.net/en/] Academic Research from Tsukuba University Japan. Tutorial : http://www.vpngate.net/en/howto_softether.aspx or Tsunagarumon
+ Free
– Rely on Volunteer sometimes unrealible [But not all, I got VPN from VPN Gate that reliable until now 1 Month+]
Paid : Just google Japan VPN, its many like Vpyr VPN, Express VPN, etc etc

FAQ . . . たぶん

Things that you DO/N’T IT at Elsword Japan

1. PVP : Ping yourself to Google.co.jp see your latency when connected on VPN, if higher than 150ms please dont force to Arena just for [email protected]#$ sake. Beware Elsword Japan got official Twitter Arena for reporting any player that abusing [Lag/Farming]
2. Language : Dont be dumb, we already crossing the line from IP Country Restriction, so dont [email protected]#$ to chat in public beside Japanese Language. Dont know Japanese Language ? Just shut up.
3. Dungeon : Be nice with random party people with say よろ/よろしく/よろです/よろしくお願いします in the dungeon start and おつ/おつかれ/おつかれさま/おつかれさまでした at end of Dungeon. Cant write it ? Keep silent or just shut up. I saw some Foreigner Player [English] idiot for saying Hello when dungeon start and Thx at dungeon end. I dont know If Hangame privacy policy and agreement that allowed language beside Japanese, but In Elsword Korea you would got banned for sure.
~ Additional ~
1. Love Me <3
2. Be Nice with any player [Like say what I write on point number 3 above, usually keep quiet just OK, but better you learn a simple greetings like よろしく or おつかれ would be great]
3. Keep Low profile and dont make unnecessary attention
4. Install Japanese IME [Optional but recommended for looking item on Market Board]
1. Hate Me </3
2. PVP [150ms] or Dungeon Party Search [200ms] f you’re got high Latency [more than that were unacceptable !] [Because I got once that a Japanese player ask the party who’s the lagger, that time was Me :laugh: ]
3. Chat your language on public, Japanese Language is a Must for Speaking on Public [Unless they know your language, keep it PM / Whipser] [I hear a story that some Japanese people that really really hate foreigner on PSO2]
Personal Note : Please dont do anything stupid on Elsword Japan, We already have a chance to play at wonderful server, so if you not serious playing at this server just leave this server alone !

Things that I Don’t know until now at Elsword Japan

1. How to Recharge Hancoin :laugh: If anyone know, please tell me. Need those B Slot :laugh: Seems impossible unless you ask Japanese Player to send via gift to you

CURRENT ISSUE – IP Address Security Lock

Just a tips, better you don’t change your IP too much since it can trigger Account Security Lock
As far as I can understand with their Customer Service, there was a System that automatically lock your account based on Unfarmiliar IP Address (Especially that you dont have any long-term-VPN)
Image just like this

How to Unlock ? Inquiry at Hangame Elsword Inquiry page



Some of My Guildmate got permanent Ban Trade [New Character Ban trade already expired], simply they can trade / search board / enter market. I already open support ticket with errrr somewhat google-translated Japanese (sorry but I just know the basic grammar fundamental) and still no reply from Hangame.
If you know something about this please comment at this page with Opening “[HOT] CURRENT ISSUE – PERMANENT BAN TRADE” Any help will be useful for anyone that play at Elsword Japan [Since KR already moving to cleaning non-Korean People play there]
*Not sure If this one permanent or not
Trade / Market Lock already issued by Hangame, If your ID still got Trade / Market lock please send support inquiry on Hangame Inquiry page !
Update : WATCH-OUT TRADE / MARKET LOCK STILL EXIST, seems they filter by IP Address !
Update : I already got explanation from Hangame Customer Service, they said there is a bug on their system that prevent player from trade / market / search board. The suggestion from Hangame Customer Service just wait. Dunno if they got Market Revamp @ 12 March, [since they already posted here something about premium service shop that changed to 15 Slot *like a Market Revamp right ?*].
Since I got the lock too on 26 Feb 2014 Maintenance
Already fixed on My ID

    Hi Kurisutaru !
    The patch that I’ve downloaded doesn’t function, there’s a lot of missing DLL… Idk what to do. And, when I go to the official website and that I download the hang.lauch it doesn’t open, says that there’s an error.
    I use google chrome, I’ve used the jp ip and my computer is a Windows 7 32 bits…
    If you could help me It’d be a bless!

    Thank you in advance 🙂

    Ahhh thank you it works good now that I’ve lauched it from their site ! I’m french so I didn’t know that they do that in Jp, I feel dumb..

    • Varenchinusu

      Jan 08, 2020 8:16 PM

      It said ‘サーバーから応答がありません。’

      Aka No response from server, you can check your IP region by open iplocation.net then put your IP

      Go to the install folder/data/increaseva.bat -> Run as Admin -> reboot -> relaunch the game

      Dude W7 32 bit already dead, better option to other newer OS (or at least W7 64bit)


    Jan 08, 2020 8:35 PM

    idk how to do aaaaaaa, if you’re talking about the cmd one It doesn’t work, like it vanish as the same time I open it. And ikr but my other computer is dead, I just have this one..
    so can’t I play it on it ? or maybe that I can message u on fb to help me plz cuz Im kinda lost !
    Sorry to bother youu..

    • Varenchinusu

      Jan 08, 2020 8:38 PM

      its always like that for CMD, or try to run as admin for the CMD

      Basically it modified the OS to allow application to usage more than 2GB RAM on 32 Bit System (Elsword can eat up to 4GB RAM)

      Facebook ? Feel free to message


    Jan 11, 2020 8:00 PM

    Hey! I finally decided to play Elsword Japan but I’m not sure if I can handle playing alone all the time and I’m scared to talk to Japanese players even with google translate. Is your guild still open?

    • Varenchinusu

      Jan 11, 2020 8:14 PM

      Me already inactive sadly and i dont know other guild


    Jan 11, 2020 8:22 PM

    Maybe I can try to create an English guild? Will it be a good idea or it will attract attention and cause problems?

    • Varenchinusu

      Jan 11, 2020 8:24 PM

      For yourself ? no, just dont chat eng in public


    Jan 11, 2020 8:32 PM

    Oh well… I guess I can only speak Japanese with google translate or play alone.

    • Varenchinusu

      Jan 11, 2020 8:33 PM
