All about the Lost Ark April Update
When will the April update come?
The update will be released on April 21. Servers will be shut down at 09:00 CET for maintenance. Maintenance should take up to eight hours, but Amazon Games usually completes much faster.
New Class: Lancer
After the server maintenance ends, you will have access to the new Glaivier class. This martial artist was known as Lance Master in the Russian version.
The spear carrier is characterized by two different stances, focus and storm, in each of which he uses different weapons. With the longer spear, he focuses on powerful and deadly attacks, while with the shorter spear he unleashes a series of quick attacks.
New continent: South Vern
There are tons of new quests and characters to discover in the new South Vern region. In fact, South Vern is an extremely peaceful region where settlers used the technologies of many different races to transform this once barren land into a thriving area of abundant water and green pastures.
However, something seems to be amiss here, so Ealyn, Queen of Vern, has assigned you and the Knight Commander Avele to investigate. According to the developers, a dramatic and spectacular battle awaits at the end of the South Vern story.
Lost Ark Pass: Battle Pass is coming
The April 21 update also brings the Battle Pass to the game. Ark Pass gives you new opportunities to earn additional rewards by completing missions.
The regular Ark Pass is completely free and gives you various useful rewards such as chests, pirate coins and a mount to choose from with materials.
However, there are also two paid versions of the Battle Pass:
- Premium Ark Pass (1,500 Royal Crystals) : The Premium Ark Pass adds additional rewards for each tier that players earn as well as free rewards. Some examples of these are chests with more grinding material, gems, chests with Rapport, and a Vertus pet.
- Super Premium Arc Pass (3,000 Royal Crystals): In addition to normal and premium rewards, the Super Premium Arc Pass includes ballot boxes for the Noble Banquet Skin Collection, Noble Banquet Wallpaper, and some Legendary Report Chests.
Premium and Super Premium Arc Passes are available in the in-game store until June 18, and progress can be earned until July 14 to unlock all 30 levels.
