Maintenance and changes
It’s April 28 and Lost Ark is currently in maintenance for a few hours (the servers may already be online when you read our news). A patch will accompany this maintenance, and this one will come back to two main things: Express Missionsan event that was implemented in the previous patch, and The “Guardian Raid” Event which was supposed to end soon… but which will ultimately be extended.
By the way, there is a trick to check the status of a server, without launching the game to see it (Because between the long loading which takes more than a minute, then the fact that if the server is off- line, you will have no choice but to restart the game… it is far from practical). You just need to go to the server status page, which is on the official Lost Ark website. At a glance, you will see the status of your server.
The April 28 patch notes
Without further ado, here are the patch notes!
April 28 Patch
- Added functionality that allows players to change the character assigned to the Mission Express event if the event’s Tier 1 and Tier 2 Refine perks have not already been used.
- Players can only change the character assigned to the Mission Express event once. Note that if a player removes the character assigned to the Mission Express event, they will not be able to assign a new one.
- Updated the event so that only level 50 characters with an item level below 1100 can be assigned as Mission Express event characters.
- Updated the engravings available in the engraving selection chests provided by the Mission Express event. All engravings will now be available, and all collected and unused selection chests will be retroactively updated to include the full list of engravings.
- Updated the end date shown in the Event menu to match the event end date of July 28.
- Players will still need to choose a character to participate in the Express Mission event before the selection period ends on June 30, but they will be able to complete quests with their character until July 28.
