The Most Important Things You Need To Know About Raids In Lost Ark

Lost Ark Guardian Raids are a challenging set of endgame activities with some high-level rewards on offer if you manage to defeat the deadly boss in each trial. In most cases, you need to party up with other players to take on a Guardian and optimize your skillset for higher-level Guardian Raids. So, before the newer or more casual players bounce of Abyss Dungeons either from raw difficulty or just toxic teammates, here are some things to know that should make the process of understanding Abyss Dungeons in Lost Ark a lot easier.

Change Builds, Skills, & Items Mid-Dungeon

Many people are still oblivious to this, but there are plenty of opportunities in an Abyss Dungeon where players can switch their Battle Items or even adjust Skills, Gear, or Tripods. Whenever this ring of golden energy appears that players will assuredly recognize from areas like the Shadowspire after a floor clear or at the start of any Guardian Raid, that’s their time to switch things up if needed.

Don’t Be Stingy With Battle Items

Knowing which consumables to prioritize in Lost Ark can save players a lot of headaches down the road. Honestly, it’s not that difficult to craft, buy with lost ark gold, or acquire more Battle Items, whether it’s HP Potions or Grenades. And, certain Abyss Dungeon bosses, such as Alaric, have mechanics that basically require specific party members to take a big chunk of damage to do it correctly. So, don’t worry too much about HP Potions or Grenades, and use them as needed in the endgame content.

Entry & Gold Limits

Each Abyss Dungeon has a varying amount of broken-up dungeon “levels”, usually two or three, and all of those make up the entire “Abyss Dungeon”. Basically, players can only complete each Abyss Dungeon, including all its dungeon “levels” once a week per character. Additionally, players can only get the Lost Ark Gold reward portion of each Dungeon “level” up to six times a week per character. Essentially it’s there to stop the hyperinflation of Gold in Lost Ark as well.

Do Your Research

Players should look up each section of an Abyss Dungeon ahead of time and learn the Boss Mechanics before going in, especially if they’re matchmaking on their own. Most, if not all, bosses in these Abyss Dungeons have multiple mechanics that are almost entirely impossible to learn organically through gameplay. This isn’t telling players to memorize all the bosses’ attack patterns, just to understand key sections of the fight that usually result in a wipe if done incorrectly. Lost Ark is an active-combat game, so split-second decision-making really matters.

Successful completion of a Guardian Raid will give your character valuable upgrade materials, jewelry with randomly-rolled Engravings, and a chance to obtain some other goodies. Was this article helpful? For more guides, browse here.
