What is Lost Ark?
The game is a Korean ARPG MMO developed by Smilegate RPG. The gaming studio has partnered with Amazon to release the game to NA gamers. The game’s gameplay is comparable to other titles in the ARPG genre such as Path of Exile and Diablo. The Korean ARPG features gorgeous and outstanding graphics paired with excellent character designs that are sure to impress players with Lost Ark accounts. The game’s bright, vibrant, and colorful atmosphere is truly remarkable compared to other ARPG’s dark, grim, and gloomy environments. Smilegate’s game’s visuals are part of the reason why the game is so popular.
The game is situated in the world of Arkesia centuries after the battle with the Demon Legion. The world is once again on the brink of destruction as the demon lord Kazeros is about to break free from his long imprisonment in a volcanic jail. Once he is free, he will reopen the Chaos Gates in order to take over Arkesia. Players are plunged right into the action as heroes to look for an ancient relic known as the Lost Ark which was used to defeat and imprison the leader of the Demon Legion.
Lost Ark Gameplay
The game features a similar playstyle to other ARPG since it is also having a point-and-click movement and action system which somewhat disappointed NA gamers. Gamers use their left mouse button to attack and navigate through the world of Arkesia while the QWERASDF keys in the keyboard are used to activate various skills of the characters. The game makes use of an isometric view fit for any ARPG game.
The game also employs a unique skill system called Tri-Pod system. This system enables players to invest their skill points in different abilities so that they do not need to follow one standard or meta build. The feature allows players to diversify their set of skills to make sure that even characters from the same classes do not have the same gameplay. The choice of how classes will be played is completely dependent on the gamers’ choices and not predetermined by any prescribed build or job path.
Aside from exploring land and farming demons in order to become strong adventurers, gamers also have the chance to sail the seas as sailing is part of the game’s exploration feature. In order to reach new areas, players need to obtain and upgrade ships to make a fleet in order to traverse dangerous waters. These ships can be upgraded with materials gained through farming and exploration.
The heroes of Arkesia will also be given command of their own strongholds or fortresses which will serve as their base of operations. These strongholds are the places where players can upgrade their fleet, their items, and even rest from travelling for so long. These places are essentially what gamers will call their homes.
Lost Ark Classes
In Arkesia, the world needs various heroes in order to succeed in the quest to find the Lost Ark. Players will have the opportunity to create characters with different starting or beginning classes. These classes determine the kind of gameplay gamers will experience as they explore dangerous lands and fight hordes of demons. For the NA release, all starting classes and advanced classes will be available. Here is the list of all beginner jobs along with their branch classes in the game:
- Martial Artist
Though gamers limit their playstyle depending on their class, this does not automatically lock them to specific DPS, support, or tank roles. Even though some classes are better suited to be attackers, healers, or tankers, each class has a degree of versatility that allows them to switch between these roles. This makes Los Ark unique since players with excellent tank classes can still choose to become decent DPS characters, or attackers can become good tanks.
For gamers who don’t have early access to the game, they only have to wait a few more days before they can start farming Lost Ark gold in Arkesia. With the game’s various features and outstanding graphics, playing the game is surely worth any player’s time. The time is near to gear up and find the Lost Ark to stop Kazeros from destroying the world!
