New class, new continent and more come to Lost Ark

Lost Ark's April update, Battle for the Throne of Chaos, arrives today. The update, which includes a new continent, new advanced class, quality of life updates and many bug fixes, meet with the players today.

Servers were shut down on April 21 at 10:00 CEST for the new update. Around 14:00 CEST, the servers were reopened. Let's take a look at what will come with the update.

New advanced class - Glaivier

Glaivier, a new martial artist advanced class, is one of the most interesting content of the update. Glaivier has two distinct skill sets. She can switch between Focus and Flurry sets. You can focus on what you want with certain builds. You can also use both sets and benefit from Glaivier to her full potential. Glaive uses a shorter spear in Focus stance and longer glaive in Flurry stance. You can check out the trailer of the advanced class, known as Lance Master on other servers, for her release on the Korean server, below.

New continent - South Vern

A new continent of Arkesia will be opened to the heroes of Arkesia. Borrowing technologies from many different races, South Vern settlers turned this once-barren land into a place of abundant water and green pastures. Hearing of the dangerous things happening in North Vern, the Senate ordered South Vern's closure. Thinking there might be a problem, Ealyn, the Vern Queen, ordered Knight Commander Avele to investigate.

It's up to you to discover what's going on i this peaceful continent. The story of South Vern, which will end with an epic battle that can change the future of Arkesia, excites the players. The only Tier 3 continent in the game was Punika. With South Vern, that number will increase to two. The item level required to start the South Vern story is 1340.

Feiton Powerpass

Players who have already completed or will finish Feiton's main story quest "Will" will receive a Feiton Powerpass. With this powerpass, you will be able to make an alternate character's item level 960 and the story will be completed including Feiton. Feiton Powerpass will be available until June 30.

Express mission event

With this new event, you will be able to choose your character who is level 50 but whose item level is below 1000 and you will be able to do Express Missions. This character, who will be equipped with 302 item level gears, will face significant honing and progression rewards. You will find an abundance of materials in the continents of North Vern, Rohendel, Yorn and Feiton. Many things are waiting for you in terms of silver, honing materials, major potions, engraving and many other rewards.

With this event, it is planned that new users will be able to catch up with their friends more quickly. Even if you are already in Tier 3, you can take advantage of this event for a new character. Completing all missions will give a very impactful reward, so you should pay attention to this event. This event will also be in the game until June 30.

Ark Pass

With the Ark Pass, players will receive significant rewards while playing Lost Ark. Players who complete Missions will earn Ark Pass level. You will get new rewards with each level. Regular Ark Pass will be free. Besides this Regular Ark Pass, which will contain many rewards, players will be able to get two more Ark Passes in two extra levels, Premium and Super Premium. This will add extra rewards to the level progress. Ark Pass will be roster wide.
