~ 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

      You can check via Computer Properties


      x86 = 32 bit
      x64 = 64 bit

      Apr 19, 2018 5:21 PM

      Elsword only have 32 bit (64 bit OS can use 32 bit application if you didn’t know), so yes you can

    • Varenchinusu

      Apr 20, 2018 8:32 AM

      > And am I must uninstall the game again and install the game from the beginning again?
      Did you ever saw the Elsword window show then off, or just simply not showing anything ?

      Try to set x2.exe compatibility mode to Windows XP SP3 or something


    Apr 20, 2018 11:54 AM

    Its just elsword window not showing anything after the download data reach 100%.
    Can I really do that set x2.exe compatibility?

    • Varenchinusu

      Apr 20, 2018 11:59 AM

      Just right click at x2.exe > properties > compatibility tab > set to windows xp sp3 > try again


    Apr 20, 2018 12:44 PM

    • Varenchinusu

      Apr 20, 2018 12:51 PM

      Could you record video or something when starting the game ? I don’t have any idea with your “windows”


    Apr 21, 2018 3:32 AM

    Sure sure
    https://youtu.be/TEKRXQ5WuYw that video is just a sample after I am delete the game and install the game back.after the download its reach 100% there is must be something pop out right? But after the file reach 100% in my computer there is nothing happen at all.
