Lost Ark is set to get major updates to its content in the coming two months, which will include two new classes previously announced in the Korean version of the game.
The two classes that are being added to Lost Ark's Western edition of Lost Ark are the Glaivier one, which is a woman-only Martial Artist a new Martial Artist option which can swap between Focus and Flurry stances for a balance between powerful strikes and rapidfire assaults. a masculine warrior class that deals the damage using a massive Hammer. The Glaivier will be released in April, and the Destroyer will launch in May, as per an Amazon blog detailing the upcoming content roadmap for Lost Ark.
New DPS classes are only the beginning of the content iceberg and Amazon plans to roll out various other activities for endgames and locations over the next few weeks. In April players will have the chance experience the adventure of the continent South Vern. Additionally, there will be numerous quality-of-life enhancements coming in April such as changes in Secret Maps and Book of Coordination settings, as well as new events, rewards for log-ins, and an Feiton Powerpass that will boost the new character's items level.
In the coming months, Amazon is planning to launch Trial Guardian Raids as another daily endgame event in addition to the first proper Guardian Raid in the form of Deskaluda. Amazon is also planning to introduce one of the world's premier Legion Raid, Valtan, to the Western version of Lost Ark in May. Legion Raids require eight players and include a variety of new features and features, with Amazon explaining Legion Raids as "the definitive Lost Ark raiding experience." May will bring more quality-of-life features like UI improvements, enhanced tools for finding party members as well as an update for loot dismantling and hairstyles to customize.
Amazon stated in its blog article that the roadmap does not contain all of the new content that will be coming in to Lost Ark in the next two months. In addition, games like that of the Valtan Legion Raid as well as the Deskaluda Guardian Raid may be delayed if the planned release in May "would cause tension in members of the group." Amazon also Smilegate RPG previously said it was an "mistake" to launch additional content from the endgame at the beginning of March because certain players felt pressured to move faster and to spend money to play this new game.
"Our data suggests that a large part of our active players will be able to reach, or are near to achieving, the levels required for participation in higher level end-game content by April," Amazon stated in the blog. "Our goal is to offer entertaining content for our players even at an upper level, and not putting players under pressure to pay in order to stay up."
