New information about the next update
02/01/2023 - The Anniversary Update is coming next week on February 8! The February update includes the new continent of Rowen and special events to celebrate the anniversary of the launch of the western version of Lost Ark. There is also new information about the new announced class "Artist".
Just recently, we reported that the advanced specialist class "Artist" will make its first appearance on the western shores of Arkessia in April 2023. Now we are happy to announce that the development work on this class has been completed earlier than planned - it will therefore be released as early as March! The Artist will be accompanied by a Powerpass and a progression event - similar to the previous Express events. These are designed to help new players (or those interested in another class) quickly prepare for the Brelshaza Legions Raid (hard) and the Hanumatan Guardian Raid, which will be released in April.
FEBRUARY UPDATE - ROWEN & ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION.
Rowen is a continent south of Sushire and rich in Sylmael, the purple jewels that are a valuable resource in Arkesia. After the fall of a flourishing ancient civilization, Rowen was forgotten in the history of Arkesia. However, when rumors spread about the richness of purple jewels in this land, the factions that were after the jewels began to join forces in Rowen.
Strange tensions exist between the factions, and barbarian nomads attack anyone who dares to enter their lands. Who will succeed and who will perish in this war-torn land? The neutral soil of Eliyabeck is out of balance and the land is divided into two rival factions: Preigelli and Liebertane.
Preigelli was founded on the belief that the chaos in Rowen was due to their negligence and that strict rules were needed in Rowen. It was founded by a group of mercenaries who knew how to use machines. "Order always triumphs over chaos".
Liebertane was founded on the belief that chaos in Rowen is caused by too strict rules and restrictions. This group of pirates and mages values freedom and passion. "We have a simple rule. Take what you can get".
What is Rowen's destiny? At the end of Rowen's world quest, a faction can be chosen for PvP in the open world.
To begin Rowen's world quest, you need to have item level 1445. Once you have chosen a faction after completing the "Devastated Eliyabeck" world quest, you can compete against the opposing faction in PvP mode. Faction ranks are divided into 15 tiers and can be earned by participating in activities such as killing members of the opposing faction and participating in daily, weekly, and cooperative quests to earn faction XP. Next week's update kicks off the war between Preigelli and Liebertane - but the competition gets even tougher in March when the Tulubik Battleground is released.
February's anniversary update will also include new events with valuable rewards to celebrate the first birthday of the western version of Lost Ark, as well as other activities like new twitch drops. Stay tuned to our website and social channels for next week's full release notes. Until then, we'll see you in Arkesia!
