Lost Ark Maintenance is scheduled to last longer than usual this week, meaning there will be additional downtime to track across all regions.
The good news is that this additional work is being done to prepare the game for one of its biggest updates yet. New characters and content will be coming in the coming months, but that also means more Lost Ark maintenance.
Here’s everything you need to know about Lost Ark’s maintenance schedule this week and server downtime.
How long will Lost Ark maintenance take?
Developer Smilegate has confirmed this Lost Ark maintenance will begin Thursday, April 14, 2022 at 8:00 AM BST. This affects all players on Steam and means more core features will be offline for several hours. Lost Ark’s support team has also confirmed that the game will be offline for longer than usual. This is intended to make way for a much larger content patch to be released later this month.
The new Galvier class is one of the most exciting new additions to the game planned for this month, adding a new advanced martial artist class to Lost Ark on western servers. The Glaivian has two distinct skillsets to trade between – Focus and Flurry – with each stance and skillset represented by one of her two weapons. The spear can be used to unleash a flurry of attacks in Flurry stance, while the longer glaive uses Focus stance for long-range damage.
Getting back to today’s update, Smilegate has confirmed that the Lost Ark maintenance will last a total of eight hours, ending at 4pm BST in the UK or 8am PT if you live in North America. There are no patch notes to share regarding today’s Lost Ark update as much of it will focus on improving the game’s backend structure in preparation for the content update coming later this month.
However, Smilegate has confirmed that they will be adding a new week of in-game attendance rewards, including the following items:
- Regulus Light Currency Chest x 5
- Chest of Battle Items x3
- Phoenix Feather x 30
- Fusion Material Selection Chest x 2
- Leap’s Essence x 3
- Una’s tasks [Daily] Instant Completion Pass x 5
