While Lost Ark already flaunts an incredible array of appealing getups for classes, yet another skin set has been released for players – with a twist. The Graceful Monkey Skin is undeniably eye-catching, to say the least, and it’s no surprise players are itching to get their hands on it.
The Graceful Monkey Skin Set is part of the recent April update, including armor piece skins completely exclusive to the brand new Glaivier class. Players can only obtain the Graceful Monkey Skin Set by purchasing it in Lost Ark’s in-game store.
Considering the fact that the Graceful Monkey Skin Set is considered an Epic and Exclusive item, players are eager to learn how to obtain it in-game. Stick around to find out about the Graceful Monkey Skin set, including how it looks on the Glaivier class as well as how to unlock it.
Lost Ark Graceful Monkey Skin
The recent monthly update for April occurring on April 21st, 2022, was incredibly hefty, including a ton of new additions such as the long-awaited new South Vern continent, the Ark Pass, and much more for players to enjoy. The update included new activities, patches for bugs and fixes, and a variety of other awesome additions.
Cosmetics are nothing new to Lost Ark, as the devs have been steadily releasing different themed or styled collections for ages. But, the April monthly update was definitely eventful in this aspect, also including the release of the Noble Banquet Skin Collection, which quickly became a popular choice for Lost Ark players of all classes.
But, the update also featured the release of the Graceful Monkey Skin Set, a single yet highly decorative and ornamental outfit that’s absolutely stunning both in color and detail. However, unlike the Noble Banquet Skin Collection and many other Skin collections released by the devs to date, the Graceful Monkey Skin Set is entirely exclusive to the newly released class.
New Glaivier Class
The Glaivier, also known as the Lance Master in Korea, is an advanced class within the Martial Artist main melee class, released within the hefty April Update. She is joining an already versatile set of champions in the Martial Artist main class and offers a plethora of badass abilities. That being said, she can be fairly tricky to get the hang of compared to her other Martial Artist allies.
She uses her trusty glaive and spear to slice through enemies with flurries of fury. This lovely blend of combat tactics and skills makes the Glaivier class an incredible option for anyone who wants the best of both worlds and a dynamic playstyle. According to the developers:
“The shorter spear is used to unleash a furious barrage in the Focus stance, while the longer glaive harnesses the Flurry stance for gracefully lethal strikes and sweeping attacks.”
The Glaivier class has a total of 20 skills, divided between her two stances. However, players will only be able to use 13 of her skills at most when playing with both stances.
“Practicing an artistic and deadly form of martial arts, the Glaivier slices and dices her way through the battlefield, weaving together attacks with her spear and glaive. The Glaivier has two distinct skill sets which can be swapped between— Focus and Flurry— with each stance and skill set represented by one of her two weapons.”
The Glaivier’s Identity Gauge revolves around these two stances, and her stance abilities are as follows:
Flurry Stance (Blue Skills)
The Flurry Stance targets quick attacks, high mobility, and utility overall. The skills within this stance have shorter cooldowns for increased performance, but the more damage-heavy skills within this stance have longer cooldowns. A total of 14 skills are classified as Flurry Stance Skills, and players will be able to use up to 8 Flurry Stance Skills when playing with both stances.
Focus Stance (Red Skills)
The Focus Stance targets extremely powerful attacks, but the payoff is that they have longer cooldowns. This stance does include some amount of speed, mobility, and utility, but nowhere near as much as the Flurry Stance. A total of 6 of the Glaivier skills are classified as Focus Stance Skills, and players will be able to use up to 5 Focus Stance Skills when playing with both stances.
Glaivier characters are already inherently graceful as is, with their epic stunts and selection of weapons, but this skin really brings out the most beloved aspects of this class’s aesthetic. According to the Lost Ark devs, the Graceful Monkey Skin Set is an Epic Item exclusive to the Glaivier class, really helping her stand out even more against Lost Ark’s other incredible and striking classes.
This means that it can only be worn by Glaivier characters, and it cannot be sold or dismantled in-game. We’ve outlined everything you need to know about the Graceful Monkey Skin Set in Lost Ark, with images thanks to Sportskeeda.
How To Unlock The Graceful Monkey Skin Set
Thankfully, the Graceful Monkey has been made rather simple and straightforward to obtain, as the devs are eager in encouraging the use of the newly released class. That being said, obtaining the Graceful Monkey Skin Set for the brand new Martial Arts queen will cost some money.
All players will need to do is head to the Lost Ark i-game store and purchase the Graceful Monkey Skin Set, which will automatically welcome players to the Glaivier player community. This skin set will help you look incredibly chic and stylish yet deadly while you learn Glaivier’s playstyle and moves.
