How To Get The Tiger Mount In Lost Ark
It may seem like this stunning beast is exclusive or restricted to endgame content based on its amazing visual appearance. But, in reality, it’s actually pretty easy and straightforward to obtain – even for players who only benefit from rewards that can be claimed completely for free!
All players will need to do to acquire the Soul Vanguard Mount in Lost Ark is reach level 10 in the Ark Pass – irrespective of whether or not they have purchased the Premium or Super Premium Ark Pass option. As a result, the Soul Vanguard Mount aka Tiger Mount can be obtained by any Lost Ark player, whether you’re taking a F2P or P2P approach.
In order to reach level 10 in the Ark Pass, players will need to complete a variety of missions, each of which will reward Ark Pass XP for leveling up. The missions include a ton of typical activities, such as completing quests, slaying monsters, traveling certain distances, etc.
The mission objectives within the Ark pass can be viewed by checking the Ark Pass screen, and missions include both Normal Missions and Seasonal Missions. The two mission types differ in the following ways:
|Ark Pass Mission Type||Limitations|
|Can be repeated multiple times within a week, until the player reaches the weekly XP limit.|
|Involve activities that can only be completed once within the Season’s duration.|
Players who frequently play Lost Ark should have no trouble completing the entire Ark Pass within the designated timeframe, as they will likely already be completing Normal Mission tasks such as Chaos Dungeons, Abyssal Dungeons, or Guardian Raids.
