heroes of arcacia,
The Wreck the Halls December update recently released a slew of new content in Arkesia with Summoner Advanced Class, Brelshaza Legion Raid (Normal), and new holiday events – but we know players are eager to see what arrives in early 2023. The content and updates below are A few highlights that we know players are eagerly awaiting, but it’s not an exhaustive list of every change coming to Arkesia over the next few months. Stay tuned to our website and social channels for future release notes including the full list of new content, cosmetics, balance changes, events, bug fixes and more included in our major monthly updates.
The Witcher event
The beautiful island festivities are interrupted by a mysterious maelstrom. Unraveling mysteries will lead to encounters with iconic characters from the magician On a brand new island and in new event missions! New Witcher-themed cosmetics will be available in the shop, and new character customization scars, cards, Stronghold structures, emojis (and more) await adventurers who get in on the action.
The Lost Ark x Witcher event will be accompanied by a quality of life update with improvements to guild systems, guild PvP, Una Tasks and more.
February marks the one year anniversary of Missing coffin Launching in the West! We have some special events planned to celebrate.
Rowen is a continent east of Shushire, full of Sylmael, the scarlet gems that are a valuable resource in Arkesia. After the disappearance of a thriving ancient civilization, Ruen was forgotten from Arcacia’s history. However, when rumors spread about the abundant scarlet gems covering the land, the factions that craved the jewels began to mass their forces in Rouen.
Item level 1445 is required to start the World Rowen quest. Strange tensions linger between the factions, and nomadic barbarians attack those who dare set foot on their lands. Who will succeed and who will die in this war-torn land? Where does Rowen’s fate lie? At the end of Rowen’s world missions, a faction can be selected for PvP in the open world. The neutral Earth Eliabek has lost balance, and now Earth is divided into two rival factions: Brighili and Libertans.
Preigeli was formed on the belief that the anarchy in Rowen was due to its indulgence, and that strict rules were needed in Rowen. They were formed by a group of mercenaries who are very good at using machines.
“Order defeats chaos every time.”
Libertane was formed on the belief that the chaos in Rowen was due to very strict rules and restrictions. This group of pirates and magicians values freedom and passion.
“We have a simple rule. Take as much as you can.”
You must choose a side and participate in the war for Roen. Once you choose a faction, you will enter PvP mode against the opposing faction. Faction ranks are divided into 15 levels and can be earned by participating in activities to gain faction experience, such as killing members of the opposing faction and participating in daily, weekly, and cooperative missions. In February, the war between Brigley and Libertines will begin – but the competition heats up in March, when the battlefield of Tulupek kicks off.
A new type of PvP action arrives with the 96 player (48v48) RvR Tulubik Battlefield. With bases to capture, special secondary objectives, not to mention dozens of players to battle on the other team, there is no shortage of action in Tulubik Battleground. Matches are held at specific times during the week. There are two types of matches that can occur:
Regular match: consists of 48 players per side.
Friend Match: It is played when there are more than 40 players waiting after the opening time of the regular match.
Faction rank 5 and item level 1490 are required to participate in Tulubik Battlefield, and faction experience can be gained by all those who answer their faction’s call to action.
The next major batch of Quality of Life updates will arrive in March along with balance changes, new events, and the third Arkpass! We’ll have more details on what players can expect closer to the update, so be sure to stay tuned.
The artist is capable of tactical variety with powers of illusion from her brush, and specializes in supporting her team. With her magical brush and flowing ink, the artist can either choose to attack enemies directly or summon sacred beasts through her drawing. While the artist’s attack power is low, she is able to provide powerful support to allies, saving them from danger with her powers of illusion – making her a welcome member of any party. Artist class ID is Moonfall & Sunrise. The artist can fill the harmony meter by landing skills on enemies, and when the meter is full, she can create up to 3 harmony orbs. Harmony Orbs can be used to illuminate Moonfall and Sunrise. Moonfall can instantly strengthen several party members with the power of Stroke, and Sunrise, with the power of Painter, can create a Sun Marble that refills a single member’s HP. The artist is the beginning of a whole new category. The Specialists, who will appear more than once in 2023, we know there’s been a lot of speculation in the Lost Ark community about how the Artist Class will make its way to the Western release of Lost Ark, and we want to be transparent with players excited about its release. Previously, we mentioned that there might be some content in the original version of the game that is being adapted for Western audiences. While our goal is to maintain the authenticity of the original game, we also work with Smilegate RPG to make localization updates to ensure the game feels approachable and representative for our Western players. Nothing about gameplay will change for the artist class, but some skins will be tweaked to better fit Western standards. Specifically, skins with miniskirts will have shorts added below the skirt, and other skins will have adjusted pant lengths or tights added. We will work to preserve the original spirit of the skins when implementing these changes to ensure players have a variety of compelling customization options for this uniquely versatile class.
Brelshaza difficult situation
Phantom Legion Commander will return in a more challenging version of the 8-player Legion Raid. Hard mode will increase the difficulty, increase the rewards, and introduce the new ancient quality of gear and accessories. Brelshaza Hard Mode will require item level 1540 for gates 1 and 2, 1550 for gates 3 and 4, and 1560 for gates 5 and 6.
Hanumatan Guardian raid
The solar guard Hanumattan is revered in Anika. The martial artists of Anika followed the movements of Hanumatan to develop a martial art. A massive force of destruction in the Chain War 500 years ago, Hanumatan sensed chaos looming over Arcacia and awoke from a long slumber. After watching the state of the world with dispassionate eyes, he comes to the conclusion that humans are the enemies that endanger Arcacia. Hanumatan must be stopped, before his cold and furious rage destroys all life on Arkesia. The Hanumatan Challenge in a Guardian raid will require item level 1540, and like Brelshaza Hard Mode, successful parties can earn Ancient Accessories.
I look forward
We’re excited to see players experience unique events, explore new parts of Arkesia, fight in new PvP game modes, and get ready for the challenging Brelshaza Hard Mode experience over the coming months. In the meantime, stay tuned to our website, social channels, and release notes for the full list of new content, store updates, events, bug fixes, and more over the coming months. Happy holidays and we’ll see you on the party island in Arcacia!
