Main quest and side quest

  • You will always have side quests associated with the main quest
  • They will be in the main quest area, so talk to everyone before you start your quest.
  • Side quests also allow you to have stats for your character
  • You will get "Quest" consumables, take them all to complete the regions
  • These completed regions will give you access to rewards, as you go.
  • After a quest package you will have access to a dungeon, in "normal" or "difficult", try to finish it in difficult to maximize the loot
  • The polishing (the light blue diamonds on your equipment) corresponds to the level of quality of this one
  • Press J then locate if needed

Professions (Life Skill)

Trades are unlocked during a main quest, while waiting for the "life skill" to appear with a padlock.
You will need harvesting equipment (pickax, basket, etc.) to be able to collect trees, mines etc.
There are six professions:

  • Gathering: collecting plants
  • Mining (miner): recover metals
  • Fishing: collect various fish
  • Lumbering (lumberjack): recover wood
  • Hunting: collect meat
  • Archeology (archaeologist): allows you to find artefacts


  • Various music will be unlocked as you go
  • The first will be to get out of the dungeons, then to encourage questing troop
  • The game will make you use them when you need to at first, so don't worry too much about them!

NPC affinity

  • It is possible to improve relations with some NPCs
  • They are marked by a heart
  • You can give them the affinity items (the ones with a heart in your inventory)
  • Each level you pass gives you rewards
  • You can also make emotes or music to gain affinity

Game currencies

Different currencies are available, each with their own utility

  • Silver: to buy from standard NPCs
  • Crystal: to buy at the Cash Shop (game money)
  • Crystal Ore: to buy at the Cash Shop (real money)
  • Gold: to buy house action from players
  • Lupeon Seal: to buy from priests and collectors
  • Mokoko seed: be on the map to buy from the specific NPC

The map

  • Alt + left click to teleport to a waypoint on the map (tab)
  • Open the map and zoom out with right click
  • Zoom on the map with the roulette wheel

The stats

Combat stats

  • Intelligence / Strength / Dexterity: increases your damage
  • Vitality: increases max life
  • Critical: critical chance
  • Specialty: increases your special skill (Z)
  • Subdue: increases damage taken by CC enemies
  • Agility: increases attack speed, cooldown and move speed
  • Endurance: increases overall defenses
  • Proficiency: increases the duration of enemy statuses and reduces on self

Stats of your nature. They are not essential but serve as a prerequisite for some for some Mokoko, affinity quests or dialogue requiring minimum stats (thanks to the Lost Ark FR discord for their help!).

  • Intelligence
  • Kidness
  • Charm
  • Courage

Useful information

  • Ancient Gold Coins are only items for sale in the NPC
  • Loots in public are only for oneself
  • The "dismantle" only allows you to empty your inventory
  • Life Skill's ax throwing kills roaming animals like rabbits
  • Quests give you an item to use on F5, be careful not to get stuck on it!
  • The "skill points potions" are potions giving skill points or life points
  • There is a card game system, available after level 30 in the main city

The titles

  • Each title gives you a permanent cumulative bonus
  • You can therefore buff your character by achieving several achievements
  • However, you can only display one title
