Recently, Lost Ark got a new event meant to provide some help with progression. Now there’s a change to the Express Mission event that adds a limited one-time character swap option and a change to Engraved Choice Chests.
In an update today, CM Roxx updated that the event will change during this week’s weekly maintenance on Thursday to add this new option. The change comes as there have been a number of player reports stating that they started the Express Missions event with one character, only to find that another character on their roster would have benefited better.
Amazon is working with Smilegate on this matter as well as better communication, but for those looking to change their Express Mission character, there will be a one-time character change option on Thursday. If you used the wrong character, this option will help you make a more informed decision. You can select or switch to any level 50 character with an item level below 1100 to take on the challenges and earn rewards.
Engraving Choice Chests are also getting a change, so you’ll want to avoid opening any remaining ones until after the update. These contain all the recipe selection options.
However, there are some exceptions. If you have already used the event refinement benefit on T1 or T2 gear pieces, you will not be able to trade characters. If you only upgraded the event character’s T3 gear, you can switch.
If you have already claimed some of the rewards, you will not be able to receive them on the new character. This avoids rewarding the same player twice. All rewards from the event are character-bound. So if you’re thinking of changing your character, don’t use them until after the update later this week.
More on that below Lost Ark.
