How To Find Every Ark In Lost Ark (Explained)

Arkesia’s era of peace and harmony abruptly came to an end as new threats and evils arose throughout the land, requiring valiant heroes to search for all of the Lost Arks. Finding these arks can be rather challenging, and it will take quite a hefty amount of time and solid grinding as you progress through the game.

There are 7 lost arks scattered throughout Arkesia, but only 6/7 can be found at the moment. All 7 Arks have not yet been released in the original Korean version, but the first 6 can be acquired by completing World Quests.

Although players cannot locate and acquire all of the Lost Arks just yet, obtaining the available 6 Arks will still be worth the effort. Stick around to find out how to find all of the available Arks in Lost Ark, as well as why some Arks cannot be obtained by numerous players.

How To Find All Arks In Lost Ark

Finding the arks is part of the main storyline, and players can naturally acquire all available arks as they progress through the main questline. In most cases, players will only obtain 2/7 arks once they hit level 50 and access Tier 3 endgame content, and they will still need to continue playing to acquire the additional arks currently available.

Finding The Arks Quest

In order to kickstart the journey of finding all of the arks in Lost Ark, players will need to complete the ‘Finding the Arks’ quest, which grants players the complex task of finding all of the arks. This quest can be rather challenging for most players, but getting started on this quest is essential for finding further arks in Arkesia and progressing in the game.

Finding the Arks is directly connected to World Quests and is unlocked after players unlock the Sailing ability, which allows players to travel via ship on Arkesia’s World Map. The Sailing ability is only unlocked after completing the Set Sail quest, which is the last quest in the East Luttera storyline and is also essential for many of Lost Ark’s other activities.

Many players can become understandably confused and frustrated about what to do to ‘complete’ the Finding the Arks quest. This is since the quest itself does not provide players with any specific instructions or guidance via a given location – it only tells players to find the arks.

Before, players would have been following the Main Questline, indicated in orange. Now, players will need to follow World Quests, indicated in blue in the quests menu, signaling that the story is continuing on to a new ‘chapter’.

Players will need to use their in-game Journal to follow and complete the questlines on the various continents throughout Arkesia in order to find the arks. However, since all of the arks are not available in-game yet, it’s not yet possible to complete the Finding the Arks quest entirely.

It is possible to acquire the arks out of order, although acquisition will be influenced by accessibility to various continents or locations, as well as other aspects. Below is the order in which most players can obtain the available arks in Lost Ark.

There are a ton of side quests that players can complete in North Vern as well, allowing them to gain access to even more awesome and fun content. But, players will need to complete the main World Quests in North Vern to acquire another ark.

Completing the main questline up until Ealyn’s Gift can also reward the Power Pass via in-game mail. After you acquire 4/7 arks, players may notice that their World Quests have been ‘completed’, but there is still much to be done in-game.

This can leave players feeling understandably confused, and unsure how to proceed with finding the other arks. However, they will need to follow a new guide named ‘[Guide] Guides: Rohendal’.

In order to reach Rohendal and continue questing, players will need to reach item level 400 at least, and players can focus on getting their gear honed to acquire the necessary equipped item level, as seen below thanks to RPG Division.

Ark 6/7 (South Vern)

South Vern may be playable in some regions, rewarding players with the Ark 6/7 after its questline’s completion. However, the South Vern content has not yet been released in the Western version, and Western players are expecting to see everything that South Vern has in store around the middle of 2022.

Ark 7/7 (Unknown)

At the time of writing, there are only 6/7 available arks in the game on a broad scale, depending on the player’s region. Some regions, such as Korea, have access to 6/7 arks in-game, while other regions may still be limited to between 4/7 and 6/7 available arks. The 7th ark is yet to be released in the original Lost Ark version, which made its debut in Korea a few years ago.

As a result, Western players will need to wait an indefinite amount of time before they’ll be able to acquire 7/7 arks in the game and complete the Finding the Arks quest. But, considering that South Vern, the location of Ark 6/7, is still supposed to be released in 2022, it’s safe to say that players may just need to be patient concerning the release of Ark 7/7.

Players may feel disheartened to see that they have hit level 50 and started playing Tier 3 content, but still lack most of the lost arks in-game. However, this is entirely normal, as most players only have between 2/7 and 4/7 arks by the time they reach the endgame. Still, you can get a headstart on tracking down all of the lost arks before they are all released by completing each of these continents’ questlines.
