Massive Lost Ark Content Roadmap
The time has come as Amazon has revealed its roadmap for the months of April and May.
This is huge for all Lost Ark players because now they can see the direction the game is heading in and see the game is still fresh with development!
The Roadmap is very well laid out and we are going to see a new location, classes, and raids!
What to expect in April
This news comes as a huge boost for any players that were stuck doing the High-End grind trying to get their gear score up because you’ll now be able to farm South Vern which will be a new Continent located, you guessed it, in the South!
You encounter new characters that have yet to be seen, new quests for you to explore and the Continent will have a good amount of farming resources to help boost your gear score leveling speed.
South Vern will join Punika as the second tier 3 continent, requiring an item level of 1340 to begin!
With a new continent comes a new class!
Glaivier has been announced to join in April.
This class will be a martial artists which may be an advanced class for some people to handle so get ready to try it out!
The Glaivier’s practice an artistic, deadly form of martial arts. The Glaivier slices and dices her way through the battlefield, weaving together attacks with her spear and glaive.
The Glaivier has two distinct skill sets which can be swapped between Focus and Fury. As each stance will require a different skill set! This will be represented by her two weapons that they wield.
The shorter spear is used to unleash a furious barrage in the Flurry stance, while the longer glaive harnesses Focus stance for gracefully lethal strikes and sweeping attacks.
While certain builds may focus your attention on one of these weapons, an effective Glaivier can maximize their potential by creating a balance between the two stances, building up energy in one stance which grants an impactful stat-boost when swapping to the other.
The Glaivier will join the Wardancer, Soulfist, Striker, and Scrapper as the fifth Martial Artist Advanced Class.
Along with a new class and continent, we are getting a Feiton power pass that provides item-level 960 gear.
Also some QoL improvements:
- Improved co-op party play for Secret Maps: all four members can submit a map to get rewards with one run.
- Chat tab settings are shared across a player’s Roster.
- Improved Book of Coordination settings: Can use skill presets, tripod level, skill runes, gems, item set effects, etc.!
And all that was just April! Now for May we have another new class, new raids and more!
Coming in May
We are getting another class! Destroyer will be added to Lost Ark!
It will be a hammer-wielding class that will unless devastating blows to its foes. It is said Destroyers can bend gravity to their will due to how devastating their hammers can be!
They will unleash debuffs on your foes such as slows, pushing and pulling your enemies in the direction of your choosing forcing them to bow down to your greatness! The Destroyer will join the Berserker, Paladin, and Gunlancer as the fourth Warrior Advanced Class.
Trial Guardian Raids will add a new weekly activity for players looking for a challenge. Each week, players can attempt to defeat three Trial Guardians. Every Guardian has its own required item level to enter, and each week one Guardian will rotate out, replaced by a different foe.
Differing from a normal Guardian Raid, Trial Guardian Raids will apply ‘Scale of Harmony’ so that your characters’ item level will be adjusted appropriately to that of their enemy. Additionally, players cannot use the Battle Workshop in the raid region.
However, with increased challenge comes increased rewards. Rewards for each Challenge Guardian can be obtained once per roster, per week, and offer more diverse rewards than normal Guardian Raids.
Guardians are powerful entities that can tip the scales toward good or evil. A new Guardian will arise and must be vanquished before they usher in an age of darkness.
Upon arrival, Deskaluda will be one of the most powerful Guardians in Arkesia, requiring a high item level to encounter (1415). As with the other Guardian Raids, you can attempt to vanquish them alone, with a party, or matchmake with up to three other heroes.
Valtan will introduce the first Legion Raid into the western version of Lost Ark.
Legion Raids are difficult team-based activities that require teamwork to understand and enact the strategy necessary to counter each Legion Commander’s unique characteristics, abilities, and mechanics. As Legion Raids are challenging and take time, there are gates (or checkpoints) that will save players’ progress as they advance through the Raid. Valtan is an eight-player Legion raid and introduces a swathe of new mechanics.
Players will need to be item level 1415, and we’ll share more information on Legion Raids when we approach the May Update.
This is not all the content that will release in April & May. We’ll keep you up to date if anything changes as we work through both of those updates and work to ensure you know what is on the roadmap for the coming months.
