Spotlight

 

Inferno Kakul-Saydon

One of the most challenging and rewarding activities in Lost Ark is the Legion Raid, a large-scale raid that requires 16 players to cooperate and coordinate to defeat powerful bosses. The Legion Raid has three difficulty levels: Normal, Hard, and Inferno. The Inferno difficulty is the ultimate test of skill and strategy, as it introduces new mechanics and challenges that require flawless execution and teamwork. The Inferno difficulty also offers exclusive rewards that showcase the players' achievements, such as titles, achievements, stronghold structures, and more.

 

Lost Ark July Update Add Inferno Kakul-Saydon Legion Raid

 

This update will provide the Inferno difficulty for the Kakul-Saydon Legion Raid, which is the second Legion Raid in Lost Ark. Kakul-Saydon is a fearsome dragon that has been corrupted by chaos and seeks to destroy everything in its path. To challenge Kakul-Saydon in the Inferno difficulty, players will need an item level of 1475 and a full build set-up in the Book of Coordination. They will also need to prepare for new mechanics such as fireballs, meteors, lasers, and more.

 

Elgacia Epilogue

Another major feature of this update is the Elgacia Epilogue, which is a continuation of the story after the events of Elgacia, the fourth continent in Lost Ark. The Elgacia Epilogue will allow players to revisit Elgacia and meet new rapport NPCs that have their own stories and quests. Players can also help their friends and allies discover their new futures and share memories from their travels.

 

To access the Elgacia Epilogue, players will need to complete two quests: Truth, Lies, and Choices, and [Awakening] The Sunset. The epilogue can then be received from Soldier Alexia in Ereonnor's Military District. Completing the epilogue will reward players with the Journey's End Jukebox Song plus a new Vairgrys Questline trigger item (Beautifully Folded Letter).

 

Music Box of Memories

The Music Box of Memories is a new collectible feature that will allow players to experience new stories of Arkesia's inhabitants who have not received the spotlight. The Music Box of Memories is a gadget that can be played with Memory Orbs, which are hidden throughout the continents. Players will need to find hints and clues to locate the Memory Orbs and unlock their stories.

 

The Music Box of Memories will include a new toy, a new NPC named Leviyan, 17 achievements, 8 titles, and 10 jukebox songs. Players can start their journey for Memory Orbs through the guide quest Poet's Letter after completing several quests in South Vern and East Luterra.

 

Maharaka Festival

The Maharaka Festival is a summer-themed event that will bring festive activities and rewards to Lost Ark. The Maharaka Festival will include games such as Run Mokokos!, where players have to race as Mokokos while avoiding obstacles; Water Balloon Fight!, where players have to throw water balloons at each other; and Coconut Toss!, where players have to toss coconuts at targets. The Maharaka Festival will also offer progression rewards such as gold, crystals, honing materials, cards, engravings, and more.

 

QoL Improvements     

This update will also include various quality of life improvements to make the game more accessible and enjoyable for players. For example:

1. To make things convenient, they will change the following Market/Auction House restrictions:

The daily add-item registration limit will be increased from 40 items to 100 items.

The purchase cooldown will be decreased from 10 seconds to 5 seconds.

2. Moving ability stones and accessories within the same Roster no longer requires Pheons.

3. They also add the Kimono Skin collection, Miho Mounts, and Yoholing Pets in the store.
