How to Level Up Fast in Lost Ark


Leveling in any MMO can be quite a grind. In the nascent stages of the genre, leveling consisted of most of the experience. Here’s how to avoid most difficulties and level up quickly in Lost Ark.

In most MMOs these days, leveling up is just a “tutorial” for the end game, and Lost Ark is no different. While the grind isn’t too tedious, it can seriously put off a lot of players.

Combine that with Lost Ark’s insanely long wait times, it’s understandable that many players would rather skip unnecessary quests and activities and rush to level 50.

If you’re already past the upgrade part and don’t know where to start in terms of endgame, we’ve got you covered. Some of the most important systems in the game are Knowledge Transfer, Engravings, and Amethyst Shards.

What are the most important quests in Lost Ark

Since most end-game systems become available to players at level 50, leveling up feels like an introduction to more “basic” systems like monster battling, dungeons, and world bosses.

While most of the side quests in Lost Ark provide some nice extra loot, cash, and sometimes gold to the player, they aren’t really worth it unless you’re a finalist.

Their story isn’t all that interesting, or plot-critical either, since most of the side quests are either fetch quests or “kill x number of this” quests.

The real meat of the campaign, both in terms of story and gameplay mechanics, is found in the main quests. If you don’t care about a bunch of question marks on your map every time you enter an area, you can go ahead and skip the side quests altogether.

For more specific information on side quests and their content, check out the Lost Ark wiki.

If you want to explore side quests, you should learn to navigate first! Some of the most interesting adventures can be found on the islands of Arkesia.

If you have already unlocked navigation, check out this detailed ship upgrade guide, to navigate freely wherever you want. Who knows, maybe along the way you’ll fight the nightmarish ghost ship.

What is the fastest way to level up in Lost Ark

Even though the level cap is 60, reaching level 50 is much more important. All major endgame systems will become available at 50, and, while level 60 rewards with more skill points, takes much much longer to go from 50 to 60 than from 1 to 50.

You’ll eventually reach level 60, but if you’re looking for a quick leveling experience, focus on level 50.

That being said, here is a list of tips you should focus on when upgrading:

  • If you’re starting from scratch, skip the prologue
  • Don’t worry about items and item level – you’ll replace 99% of your items after level 50 anyway
  • Ignore all adventure quests EXCEPT one

There’s an adventure quest, early on, that you’re going to want to complete. It’s called “Learn Pets” and, as the name suggests, you’ll receive a pet as a reward. Pets are very important as they automatically collect items and currencies for you.

  • Complete dungeons on “Normal” difficulty

While dungeons provide a good introduction to the game’s raid systems, they take a long time to complete for an early game character. Doing them on “Normal” difficulty greatly reduces the time you need to complete them.

Also, after reaching level 50 on one character, you don’t have to worry about it on your other characters. Just use one of the free Powerpasss to get level 50 instantly.

If you want to play with your friends, be sure to take advantage of the guild system.

And finally, if you’re looking to boost your character’s stats even further, be sure to complete your deck of cards and get the best bonuses for your character.
