After another maintenance break, the developers have fixed an issue related to Royal Crystal refunds, among other changes.

  • We have fixed an issue where seeing incorrect translations on loading screens.
  • In our support event in all regions, the reward on day 15 provided an affinity item that was targeted at higher item levels (1430) . We have changed this reward to another affinity item with a more appropriate level. For players who already claimed the item on the 15th, it will be exchanged with the updated login reward during maintenance

Lost Ark is available exclusively on PC. The title is new in Western territory, but it was released years ago and has been running for quite some time in South Korea. Faced with congestion problems, Smilegate has made adjustments, but at the moment there are no plans to increase the capacity of the servers in Central Europe.
