In Elyon Online, at least in the Korean Version, the Luminus System was the Pay2Win feature of the game. In the NA Version, it is much toned down, it is still Pay2Win in my books as you can purchase this item directly from the Cash Shop giving all cash shop players an slight edge as this is a stat booster.
You can think of the Luminus as additional pet for your character. One that buffs you in variety different kind of stats as long as it is summoned.
The Luminus is a totally separate system from the Pets although they both come from the same interface which you can access through the default Hotkey “L”.
You can only have one Luminus summoned at any time.
Ways to Obtain Luminus
- PVP Honor Rewards (Using Victorious Medal of Honor x10)
- Limit of 2 boxes weekly
- Various Quest Rewards
- Daily NPC Vendor
- Hall of Challenges
- Cash Shop System
- Events (Twitch Stream Boxes)
Different Types of Luminus
There is a total of 54 different types of Luminus, they are organized in two ways, 9 prefixes and 6 affixes.
The Prefix will determine what stats it is capable of receiving along with it’s predetermined stats while the Affix will determine which rune colour attribute it boosts on it’s very first line.
In additional, there are 5 different grades of Luminus, which we will refer to them as stars, with each star increased will also add an additional stat lines to the Luminus along with other stat boosts.
Instead of upgrading the Luminus like normal gear, you can only fuse them along with other Luminus which is the same concept as the Pet System or Black Desert Online’s Pet System.
When you are fusing Luminus, please note that when you fail, your Luminus will be destroyed, you will receive Luminus Fragments of the corresponding tier you were attempting. Once you collect 5 fragments, you are able to combine it into a box that gives you a random Luminus.
For example, if you failed to fuse a 5 Star Luminus all 5 times, you will receive a box that will give you a random 5 star Luminus.
Possible Luminus Combinations
If you receive the undesired type of Luminus for a Rune Attribute, just like gear gem slots, you are capable of converting it into another type at a cost of a Radiant Luminus Converter.
However, when using convert, please note that the grade and type of Luminus will not be changed, only the Rune Attribute will be changed through this system.
The only method of obtaining an Radiant Luminus Converter is by the cash shop
