Amazon and Smilegate RPG have published the April-May roadmap for Lost Ark. Included are new advanced classes, the Glaivier (martial artist) and Destroyer (warrior), new Guardian Raid content, a variety of quality of life improvements, and much more.
Coming this month is the Glaivian, the new fifth advanced class for the martial artist. The Glaivian wields two weapons, a shorter spear that can unleash rapid impact strikes in Flurry Stance, and the longer Glaive uses Focus Stance for deadly strikes. While you can specialize in one stance and weapon type, you can also combine both for a balanced build, but feel free to switch as needed. The April update will also include skin and store updates, new login rewards, and a Feiton Power Pass to get item level 960 gear.
The continent of South Vern is also on the way, making it the second Tier 3 continent after Punika. The official description lends itself to the mysteries you will investigate:
“South Vern’s settlers borrowed technology from many different races to transform this once barren land into a place of abundant water and green pastures. Upon hearing rumors of the dangers plaguing North Vern, the Senate closed South Vern and founded a new order of chivalry. Ealyn, Queen of Vern, suspected something was wrong and ordered Knight Commander Avele to investigate. What could happen to this peaceful continent?”
When Amazon and Smilegate RPG released their letter to the community, they promised honesty. The May portion of the roadmap is divided into planned and tentative, with everything subject to change as community feedback and data shows that adding it could leave players frustrated. So far things are on track with enough players ready and properly equipped. These plans include a new Guardian Raid, Deskaluda, and a new Legion Raid – Valtan in Normal and Hard modes.
The hammer-wielding advanced class for the warrior, the Destroyer, will be introduced in May. Their hammer attacks are so powerful that “these destroyers can bend gravity to their will – slowing, firing, pushing and pulling enemies – anything needed to completely destroy them without a shadow of a doubt”.
Also coming in May are a number of quality of life improvements including the UI, Party Finder and more. Coming to Trial Guardian Raids, a weekly challenge that lets you face off against three Trial Guardians, each with a different item level required to participate. One will rotate each week and another will join the pool. These feature a scale of harmony, so your item level is always appropriate for the boss you are facing.
