Lost Ark is finally here and we are delving into the game for the first time. The story is amazing, and the gameplay itself is very immersive.

But you do have to wonder, how can you get started with the game as a beginner?

The title can be very overwhelming at first, yet with the right approach and preparation, you can actually make it work. So if we had to give you 9 tips for when you’re just starting out in Lost Ark, read on.

Choose a class you like!

It depends on your play style and how you approach the game in the first place. Generally, in PVE the best classes will be either Gunlancer, Paladin and Bard. They have a very good defense and strong offensive capabilities, which make them extremely strong in battle. That’s why it makes a lot of sense to give them a try first.
But then you can mix and match classes as you see fit.

Hypersonic Fast Travel

Yes, it’s possible to fast travel in the game. In order to do that, you can use tripods. These are triangles found on the map, you can also find them in towns and all over the map in general. You do need to pay a bit of currency to use them. But if you want to get somewhere fast, this is well worth it.

You Can Get A Free Pet

You will receive a pet if you continue playing the main campaign. Solve the “learning about pets” quest and you will receive a free pet. You do need to register this pet, but it’s a great way to enjoy the experience and bring in something new into the mix.

Using A Mount

The game is huge, so there are times when moving on foot can take a lot of time to reach a destination. Lost Ark has mounts that you can use to travel quicker. You can press 5 on your keyboard to acquire the mount and get on it.

Changing The Cursor Color

With so much stuff happening in the game, it can be very easy to not see the cursor. Thankfully you can change the color via holding the CTRL key and then you can scroll the mouse wheel. This will offer you various colors to choose from.

Enter Dungeons For Great Loot Drops

Most games in this genre require you to enter dungeons and complete them in order to win. That’s why you want to play as many dungeons as you can, as these can give amazing loot. This will make it easier for you to play, have fun and just engage into the experience as a whole.

Playing With Friends

If you want to play with friends, you can easily invite any of your friends in the game and create a party together. The entire process is simple, but make sure that you are in the same region, just to prevent any issues.

Free Items In The Store

Lost Ark doesn’t have a lot of free items in the store, but there are a few, and you also receive some currency in the beginning. You don’t have to spend any real money, but you can acquire some free items in the store with that currency, which is great.

Moving The Minimap

The minimap is in the middle of the screen, which can be an issue. You can move it via clicking on the mouse wheel and then you can move the minimap anywhere. This is great because it offers more control over the experience, and you will surely enjoy the results.


There’s a lot of stuff to enjoy in Lost Ark, but it’s important to master the simple stuff before you go into something more complex.
