Lost Ark Tips: 20 Tricks to Get Started on the Right Foot!

1 - Some games can make the leveling up process quite complicated, but in Lost Ark, you can level up quickly through the main campaign. If you want to get this done as quickly as possible, I recommend focusing on the main story quest and ignoring the side quests for now. Keep reading the main story and you'll hit rank 50 in no time.

2 - You can use the tripods in the game to travel quickly. They are indicated on the map by triangles, and you can find them in cities as well as all over the map, making it pleasant and easy for a quick trip. The only downside to this is that you have to spend quite a bit of money to travel fast this way. To use these fast travel points, open the map by pressing M on your keyboard and select the location you want to travel to. Alternatively, you can use the minimap by pressing the tab and then ALT-clicking the tripod location to quickly travel.

3 - As you progress through the story missions, at the beginning of the game you'll get a mount, which you can use to travel around the location a little faster. Often, you'll enter a zone and see a marker on the other side of the map, but when you take your mount off by pressing 5, you'll mount your horse, or any mounts you've equipped or registered, and you can use that to quickly get to where you need to be. .

4 - You may have noticed other players in Lost Ark running around with pets and wondered how to get them. After playing the main story quest for a short time, you will receive a notification informing you about the main guide quest called 'Learning about Pets'. Once you get this quest, head to Prideholme and talk to Blueberry, who will demonstrate how boring it is to pick up a bunch of stuff off the ground by hand. You'll talk to Blueberry's stepsister and she'll talk about Pets and how useful they are.

5 - Keep chatting and you'll get a free pet, which you must then register. Once you've done that, you'll have a friendly pet friend following you around. It's not just decorative, they help you collect items automatically, which will come in handy and keep you from clicking through the huge piles of items you'll get from Dungeons later.

6 - As you play the game, you will get various skill points that you can spend on your character attributes. Make sure you spend them, and if you don't like the setup, you can respec anytime for free. As you level up and gain XP, you acquire skill points and try to add points to various skills to see what style of play you like. Keep an eye on your UI as the game will tell you to spend your points. There's also the tripod system, which means you can specialize in your skills.

7 - You can access a snapshot map by pressing tab at any time. This overlays the screen and gives you a lot of information about where to go. However, it is in the middle of the screen, and this may not be to your liking, so if you want to move it, you can by clicking the mouse wheel in the middle of the mouse and moving the minimap to a better position.

8 - Your Adventurer's Tome is worth keeping an eye on. This is a log of your adventures, plus you can get some nice items from Tome.

9 - This is a quick UI tip and you can change the mouse cursor color quickly and easily by holding CTRL and scrolling the mouse wheel. Sometimes things can get hectic in battle and changing your mouse cursor during flight is a good thing so you know where he is at all times. You can switch between various colors to make it stand out in the background, especially when you're in a big battle.

10 - It goes without saying that dungeons are a decent place to get better loot in the game. As you progress through the main story, you'll naturally come across Dungeons, and you'll have to enter them alone or in a group. At the end, there's a big boss, and you'll want to take him down for some loot. After taking out the boss and collecting the loot, be sure to check your new gear against your currently equipped gear and put on your high-level gear as this will increase your character's overall level. This is a standard MMO RPG game, but it's worth shouting and paying attention to the items that drop in the Dungeons.

11 - At the end of the Dungeon, you can play a song to exit the Dungeon, normally by pressing F2. If you want to skip that animation and music, you can exit faster by typing /escape in chat. This is a small thing, but it can save you some time in the long run.

12 - It's worth checking out the store in beta, so you don't spend any real money (especially as no progress is being carried over to full release), but we did get some free coins to play with. That means you can buy some cosmetics, plus I think there are pets and mounts in there too. Since the coin is free for all of us, I would go there and spend it.

13 - You can play the entire game alone if you want, but these types of games are best with friends, plus you can get into some pretty epic battles, so it's best to try it out with friends if possible. Since the game is free, this should be pretty easy, just show them a YouTube video and get stuck on it.

14 - Guide quests are orange quests that you will see appear on the screen as you level up. They're not vital, but they provide a tutorial for some extra Lost Ark features, as well as providing some interesting unlocks. 

As you complete the guide quests, you'll be rewarded with things like extra songs, a free pet, and even powerful life skill tools. All of these will be beneficial on your leveling journey as it will give you some quality of life upgrades.

15 - Mounts in Lost Ark are incredibly useful and much more convenient to use than in other games. You unlock your mount through the main story early on and must use it almost all the time from then on.

Mounting is an instant process in Lost Ark and mounts give a huge increase in movement speed. It's easy to forget, especially if you're going to travel a short distance, but it's almost always worth the climb.

16 - Speaking of moving – don't forget about the Lost Ark fast travel points. They are displayed as a triangle within a circle on the minimap and are vital for traveling long distances quickly. 

You need to remember not only to use them whenever you need to go far on a mission, but also to click on them in each new area to unlock them. It's a terrible feeling to want to go back somewhere but then realize you forgot to unlock the fast travel point. 

17 - When you start leveling up, you can get a little overwhelmed with the skill system. There are a ton of skills and with each level you get more and more points to unlock more and more stuff. Don't worry, it's a little tricky! 

To make things quick and easy, you should focus on leveling just one or two skills. Generally, these should be skills with AoE damage, which will allow you to easily blow through hordes of monsters as you progress through the story. 

18 - If you're not sure what skills to level up or how you want to play your character, you can always test things out in the boot camp. This area is unlocked after you find the first Ark in the main story, and you'll receive a song that can teleport you there at any time.

The boot camp lets you spend your points wherever you want, giving you the option to test any combination of skills. It's a great tool for testing your class and you should make sure you take advantage of it. 

19 - This is a bit of a game cliché, but it's more relevant than ever in Lost Ark. Don't be afraid to use your potions! 

Over the course of the main story, you will be rewarded with hundreds of potions. Make sure you use them, whether to stay alive or maximize your damage. That's what they're there for and especially with health potions, it's better to use than to die and have to start all over again.

20 - Last but not least is one of our favorite Lost Ark launch tips designed for players who want to go faster. The fastest and most efficient way to level up and reach the endgame is to just follow the main story. This gives you a ton of experience, good rewards, and will get you where you want to go quickly.

You'll miss out on a few things like the free pet, extra life skill items, and some music, but if you want to get to the end of the game as quickly as possible, the main story is the way to go. You can always go back and unlock the things you missed later.
