Lost Ark August & September Roadmap – News | Lost Ark

heroes of arkesia,

The July Spells in Spades update released a massive amount of content in Arkesia last week including the Arcanist Advanced Class, Valtan Inferno Raid, Maharaka Summer Festival, Challenge Abyssal Raids, new progression events and more! Be sure to check out the full list in the release notes if you haven’t ventured into Arkesia yet to experience it firsthand.

Despite the flood of new content, we know players are excited to see what’s coming to Arkesia over the remainder of the summer months. Things will be a little different in August and September. Instead of releasing a single major update for each month, we will split the changes, updates, and new content into three updates – a smaller content update in August, a quality-of-life and back-end tech update in early September, and one last major content update towards the end of September.

The content and updates listed below are some of the highlights that players are looking forward to, and similar to previous roadmaps, this is not a comprehensive list of all the releases in these updates. Stay tuned to our website, social channels, and release notes for the full list of new content, store updates, events, bug fixes, and more.

August

The Pet Ranch is the perfect place to play, grow and earn rewards with your pet. Complete “Yay, Pet Ranch!” Quest after unlocking the farm and cave and having a pet. Restore your pet’s morale, manage pet features, and earn jelly cookies that you can exchange for valuable rewards!

Maharaka Festival – Flowering Mokokos

Ongoing Maharaka Festival Gets New Activities in August Update – The leaves of the Marahaka tree in Maharaka’s Paradise are known to bring good luck. Collect as many as you can during the Marahara Festival and trade them for mounts, animal skins, and more!

September – Part 1

As mentioned above, there will be two major updates in September. The first September update will include some important back-end technical updates that pave the way for the second September update. We also thought it would be a good time to incorporate some of the recent quality of life improvements that have recently been added in the South Korea region. The full list of changes can be found in the update’s release notes, but some of the key QoL features players can look forward to are:

  • Social Updates

    • Global chat room (announced as LoaTalk in Korea), chat improvements, and guild group chat.

    • Improved cross-server interaction, including interacting with people from different servers in Strongholds and the ability to add friends from different servers.

  • adjustment

    • 2 new hairstyles for each starting class.

  • Battle

    • Trixion Training Grounds has been updated to become a better training environment to test many different combinations (skill runes/gems/engraves/maps) of settings with more skill points.

    • A PvP class balance patch.

  • Settings improvements

    • Better PvP settings, improved guild systems, and improved controller support and settings.

September – Part 2

The second update in September will be the major content update, including a new Advanced Class, Legion Raid, and Events. This update will also include some server merges. We will continue to monitor which worlds could use a merge and provide full details on which servers will be merged and how the merge will work prior to the update.

New advanced class – Machinist

The Machinist arrives in Arkesia armed to the teeth with the high-tech machine guns, laser weapons, and drones found in Arthentine – ready to blast, incinerate, and neutralize any threat with surgical precision. When standard weapons and drone attacks aren’t enough to take down a target, the Machinist can activate their Identity ability and arm themselves with cutting-edge technology, the Hypersync ability. Energy cores for the high-tech hypersync suit can be charged by landing attacks, and once entered, hypersync core energy is consumed by abilities until the machinist is exhausted. The Machinist will join Deadeye, Gunslinger, Artilleryman, and Sharpshooter as the fifth Gunner Advanced Class.

Cockroach Sidon Legion Raid

Kakul-Saydon enters the battlefield in the third legion attack. In this raid, you face the madness of the Midnight Circus as you battle members of the Mayhem Legion and Legion Commander Kakul-Saydon. Revives are not available during combat, so be ready to fight for your life. Unlike Valtan & Vykas, Kakul-Saydon is a four-player Legion raid. This Legion raid has 3 gates and comes complete with a bunch of new unique traits, abilities, and mechanics. While players must be item level 1475 to attempt the normal raid difficulty, item level 1385 players can participate in an easier version of the raid called Midnight Circus: Rehearsal to practice the difficult mechanics and teamwork required to complete the raid defeat Chaos Legion.

New events, new skins & more!

September will bring new events, new skins, and more. We look forward to witnessing the epic battles against Kakul-Saydon and the Machinist’s high-tech combat in action. Stay tuned to our website, social channels, and release notes for the full list of new islands, store updates, events, bug fixes, and more over the coming months. See you in Arkesia!
