Yes, we're going hard in Lost Ark. Hsiri found this game and then Auth fell in love with it because UwU. Then they tried not to burn out in Russia before the game actually launched.
Check out the complete list of StratsCo guides for Lost Ark as well.
The poll of who wants to play where in the Lost Ark channel on Discord should give us an idea of who really wants to play on which cluster, and we'll see if there are any volunteers from within those groups who're interested in helming the guild(s) on their coast (probably going to need more than one on each at first given the low starting guild max of 30; we'll consolidate as that max increases through guild leveling to the true max of 100 and players burn out/quit).
Interested volunteers are welcome and encouraged to DM Auth on Discord.

Lost Ark is one of the most widely anticipated MMOs set to launch very soon, and people are excited to test it out and play it starting with February 11. But the question is, does this game deserve your time? Sure, it’s free to play, but is it actually a good title to play? We are here to answer some questions about the title, the way it plays, and also its guild system.
Right off the bat, what stands out in Lost Ark is its incredible visuals. The game has already been available in Asian countries for more than 3 years, and it has been optimized and polished, so the version we get is also high quality and without the bugs that a game like this would have. There is a lot of attention to detail when it comes to visuals, and the gameplay itself does resemble Diablo a bit, which is a great thing to say the least.
The story in Lost Ark is quite complicated, with many twists and turns. But it’s also easy to follow thanks to the way it’s presented, and every action does seem meaningful. This certainly adds to the experience, and it conveys impressive results, while pushing the limits in a very rewarding and powerful manner. That’s the thing that truly makes it worth the effort.
What we like about Lost Ark is the fact that they don’t shy away from the idea of having a lot of variety when it comes to classes. There are classes like the gunner, martial artist, warrior, mage and assassin. Each one feels different, and it definitely adds to the gameplay and the experience as a whole. You will appreciate the great attention to detail, and thankfully you do get a max level character boost when you reach level 50. That means you can try out a new class, which is great because you can adapt and adjust accordingly as you play, while still testing things out and seeing if you like the class in question.
We like the fact that Lost Ark is unraveling a wonderful, deep world with many interesting rules. They are not afraid of pushing the limits and showing something different, but it does pay off. The world, its structure and economy are very similar to our own. You receive a high level of immersion, and you will appreciate the unique style and ideas being brought to the table. It’s nice to see how Lost Ark comes together and how it’s presented, which is incredible in its own right.
There’s also a lot of loot and variation, something that’s important in a game like this. It doesn’t hold your hand either, it continually strives to convey something new and rewarding, while still pushing the limits and truly offering the value that you are interested in. People love Lost Ark because it has a great fantasy world, there are reasons to replay the game over and over. There’s also quite a lot of endgame content to try out. So, you won’t have a shortage of things to do in the game, which is significant for a game like this.
Lost Ark does allow you to play on your own throughout the entire game if you want. But if you really want to enjoy all the content the way it was meant to be played, entering a guild is a good idea. We like the fact that joining and exiting a guild is very seamless, short and simple. That means you can easily try out a guild, see if you like it, and if you don’t like it you can easily exit, and you won’t have any possible issues related to that.
There’s also quite a lot of stuff to do in a guild. All the guild members need to contribute with guild work according to the set guidelines. It’s important to keep in mind because not contributing to the guild as a whole will give you less gold and extra features, which is something you want to avoid dealing with. Every guild will have crystals gained on a variety of factors. There are distribution settings, as well as weekly contribution and guild vs guild and guild vs environment experiences.
The guild vs environment is pretty simple, it’s PVE content where the entire guild will have to complete various objectives against NPCs in the game. It’s straightforward, and the loot is excellent, so it’s definitely worth a shot. In Lost Ark, the PVE missions are pretty varied, even if some of them do seem to repeat regularly. But it’s still enjoyable, and that can make a huge difference if you do it right. These boss raids are exciting, and they do require the entire team to work together if they want to win.
Guild vs guild, on the other hand, is a weekly PVP mode created specifically for guilds. In Lost Ark, it’s also known as island capture. The idea here is that guilds compete every week to try and take control of a contested island. You will need to eliminate the enemy players. However, there are islands that come with a variety of other game modes. If you enter the guild vs guild experience, you will have guild contribution and participation points. This is a great way to acquire better guild rewards and also boost your standing in that guild.
Lost Ark is very promising, it has incredible content and some impressive ideas. It’s definitely engaging and quite fun to go through, but the best part is that it includes lots of endgame content for guilds too. That certainly adds a lot of replay value, and it makes the game a lot more exciting and engaging than what you would expect. It’s absolutely worth a shot, especially since it’s free to play, you just have to download and see if you like it!
