Dark or Light

A Peek at the Dawn of the Magician Update

Not all the Shalings have the capacity to become a Trickster, there are those that lack the power given by the Goddess and instead are imbued with the power of Chaos from the Onyx Order. The Dawn of the Magician is here and she's ready to help defend Hakanas with her destructive dark power or maybe she just wants to get a few laughs out of her pranks.

The Dawn of the Magician Update will be free to all players as soon as it goes live. Everyone will be able create the all new Magician class ready to tempt you into chaos!


If you thought the Shaling were already strong because of the Goddess’s power, you thought wrong. Magicians may have received the short end of the stick with Ellora’s magic but the power of Chaos will always be able to fill that void.

Backing up on the information above, Magicians were originally supposed to be Tricksters in training. Unfortunately, having a lower capacity for magic from the Goddess, Magicians are making more frowns than smiles and are slowly getting jealous and full of spite.

Fortunately, Princess Lania understood this feeling and asked the Onyx Order for help and the only help that Crow can give is to give the Magicians the power of Chaos.


In regard to the contrasting difference between the Trickster and the Magician, the Trickster is destined to be the idol of people and generate laughs and giggles from all around. The Magician turned out to be a prankster for her own laughs and fun because of her not being able to be as attuned to Ellora’s magic.

Perhaps in her own way, the Magician would rather be spiteful and arrogant and be seen as bad but she knows in her heart and mind that when there’s trouble coming, she’ll be there to defend the people.


While the Trickster may be all things cute and cuddly, the Magician on the other hand is all about that darkness. Her destructive power due to Chaos and skillful use of the Wizard’s two-hand staff equals devastating carnage. The Magician while originally blessed with Ellora’s magic can still access this untapped power and fight with both the power of light and chaos.


This new update comes with an all new class and awesome community events along with the removal of the Rabbini Cup update.


  • An all new class powered by both Ellora’s Magic and Chaos!
