From exciting adventures exploring vast terrain and unique islands to fun in-game activities taking on epic monsters and evil enemies with badass advanced classes, there’s plenty to love about Lost Ark. But, one of this game’s most adored aspects is its selection of awesome mounts.
The Chamkuri Mount is available in 5 colors after logging in to Lost Ark for 20 consecutive days. These colors are Mango, Kiwi, Berry, Peach, and Soda, with the Soda variant seeming to be the most popular and the Kiwi variant seeming the least popular. However, the choice will ultimately depend on personal preference.
The game offers a variety of mounts for players to ride, from powerful and otherworldly beings to vicious and tough beasts. Although, there is also an undeniably adorable mount too – Lost Ark’s Chamkuri. However, with so many great color palettes to choose from, players often struggle to make the final decision.
Lost Ark Chamkuri Mount
While obtaining some of Lost Ark’s mounts can be challenging, or impossible due to limited releases, players will be pleased to know that acquiring the Chamkuri Mount is actually quite practical.
All players need to do is get their gear score to 460, requiring them to complete the Sushire Questline. Since the Sushire Questline is important for other in-game purposes, unlocking the Chamkuri Mount is simply a hefty bonus. However, doing so will only unlock the standard Chamkuri Mount and not its additional color options.
Chamkuri Mount Color Options
The Chamkuri Mount is available in five different color palette options. Unlocking these colors is pretty easy after you acquire the Chamkuri Mount, as they will be given in a chest as a login reward after logging into Lost Ark for 20 consecutive days.
Each of the Chamkuri Mount color palettes stems from a tropical-type theme, featuring various iconic bright colors with sweet or fruity names to match. They all also have adorable flower headpiece accessories and fluffed-up hind feathers making for a gorgeous yet comfortable traveling experience.

Which Chamkuri Mount Color Is Best?
All of the Chamkuri Mount color options are undeniably cute and vibrant, flaunting an eye-catching tropical color palette with various differences. It’s safe to say that the majority of the Lost Ark community finds the Soda Chamkuri Mount most appealing, and the Kiwi Chamkuri Mount least attractive.
Anything falling in between the ‘best’ and ‘worst’ is debatable, as the entire Chamkuri Mount color palette ranking system is completely based on players’ personal opinions. None of the color options are inherently bad, and it may be more about which variant is most ‘popular’ based on which matches up with most players’ styles.
That being said, the final choice between Chamkuri Mount color palettes will ultimately come down to what you like most, as well as the aesthetic that you’re going for with your Lost Ark character. In all fairness, the Kiwi Chamkuri Mount is still really cute and could be a great option for any player who loves the look.
Another factor to consider is the differences between feather designs, accessories, and details, as these aspects could also influence how well your Chamkuri Mount matches your character and build. Either way, rest assured that there is a Chamkuri Mount color palette for every style and personality – if you love the in-game preview, that’s all you need to make your final choice.
Choose Your Chamkuri Mount Color Wisely
Players have to be quite careful with their color choice, as only one Chamkuri Mount color variant can be chosen. In addition, no previews of the Chamkuri Mount color options are given in-game, leaving players feeling understandably indecisive about their ultimate decision.
Some players have been feeling quite disappointed about their choice, potentially having made the decision too quickly without checking forums for other Lost Ark players’ opinions. A general issue was that, in addition to there being no preview, the Chamkuri Mount color icons do not quite match the actual Chamkuri Mount 100%.
Such an issue has sparked debate amongst fellow Lost Ark players, with many stating that it should be safe to assume the icons should match and others claiming that players should check online before making such decisions. Quite a few players have pointed out that, while hardcore gamers can expect similar research protocols from others, most casual players would not check for details online and would likely assume that the in-game icons are completely accurate.
It’s unknown if the icon issue will be fixed or if a preview feature will be added over time. Thankfully, fans and Lost Ark enthusiasts seem to have managed the situation themselves in order to prevent similar experiences for other players in the future.
The issue with the Chamkuri Mount color palettes lacking a preview feature has ignited a spiral of frustration amongst players and fans. Fortunately, Lost Ark‘s most dedicated community members have taken it upon themselves to create their own previews and help others decide which color would be best for them.
