Lost Ark Destroyer class – Everything you need to know


Lost Ark introduces yet another class to the list. We’ve known about the Destroyer for a while now, and it looks like we’re finally getting them after a few delays. With its deadly playstyle and massive tankiness, that might just be what your raid party is missing.

After several delays due to numerous issues with the game, it looks like we’re finally getting the Destroyer class. Although it comes after the release of the Glaivier, the Destroyer is already generating colossal hype.

We’re finally going to have a real hardcore tank in the game. It’s going to be huge for raids. The developers hope the new classes will bring back many lost players. Many have been driven away by balance frustrations, a stalled economy, and a lack of meaningful updates.

We recently discussed one of the most controversial topics in the community, does Lost Ark pay to win? We’ve also covered the other upcoming class, the Glaivier, in detail. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Why is the Destroyer so hyped in Lost Ark

For many players, the Destroyer is exactly what was missing from the character roster. A real heavy tank that can take on raid bosses without feeling a thing. It is so expected for several reasons.

First, many players who were hoping to play a tank class were relegated to the deadliest ones like Berserker, which also needs to do a lot of damage to be relevant. We are finally going to have a real high cc tank class in the game.

Secondly, even more, players felt they needed a better tank in their raid team. This is one of the main reasons raids were so difficult. We have so many damage dealing classes, but no proper tank, no one to stagger and aggro bosses all the time.

This will make raids like the Alberhastic Guardian Raid much more accessible to all players. If tanks aren’t your thing, don’t worry. We’ve got the perfect solution for you – here’s the best DPS class to play in Lost Ark.

How the Destroyer works in Lost Ark

The Destroyer is part of the Warrior class and functions as an ultra tanky version of the Berserker. He has insane stagger and can shield himself for very high amounts, but he is very slow and takes a long time to deal damage.

They also have unique kits. The Destroyer’s abilities are of two types: Focused and Release. It’s a simple concept. When you use Focused Abilities, you gain Liberation Cores. Each Liberation Ability costs Liberation Hearts. You can stack up to three hearts at a time and spend them to use release abilities.

Release abilities are more powerful versions of the Destroyer’s targeted abilities. Consuming hearts also grants an increasingly larger shield based on how many you consume.

This makes Destroyer the most tanky class by far. The class will act as the main tank in both PvE and PvP and will most likely rely on their team to deal damage. But don’t count it! He is extremely slow, but he deals huge damage if he manages to hit his attacks. The Destroyer also has a lot of crowd control, so picking it up in raids will likely be a must.

Although this character looks impressive, it definitely has some downsides. Their PvP presence, for example, will likely be limited. Until release, we can’t know for sure, but here’s our latest PvP tier list – let us know where you think The Destroyer will land on it.

The Destroyer also comes with a free powerpass. Here’s how to get the most out of your new powerpass.

Even though two new classes are added, we can’t forget the GOAT. Here is the best class to play solo in Lost Ark.
