Lost Ark Academy - Souleater

November 7, 2023

Heroes of Arkesia,

The Souleater arrives in Arkesia next week on November 15, accompanied by progression events to help players quickly level up. Learn about the Souleater’s abilities, engravings, and progression events below. The Souleater – the Master of Specters – is an Assassin subclass who wields a giant scythe to collect her enemies’ souls. Souleater can choose to attack in three different ways: directly with the scythe, by summoning the dead, or with powerful Deathlord attacks.

Progression Events

South Vern Powerpass & Super Mokoko Express Event

An Event South Vern Powerpass will release with the update for players to use until February 7, 2024. Pairing well with the South Vern Powerpass, players will be able to designate one character between Item Level 1415 and 1540 on their account to participate in the Super Mokoko Express Event, where they’ll have discounted honing rates, discounted gold requirements, and earn honing materials to quickly level up to Item Level 1540 and beyond. There are also Combat Style Setting Support options for players to easily set skills and Engravings through presets, and get item support for accessories with relevant stats and Ability Stones. The designated character will earn valuable rewards as they level up, including Silver, honing materials, high level Gems, Engravings, and more!

The Super Mokoko Express Event also includes an Engraving Support system that lets players choose 5 engravings to be in effect at level 3 during the event. Here’s how to get started:

  • After selecting a Super Mokoko Express character, the Engraving Support button will light up.

  • Click the Engraving Support button to open the Engraving Support page and select your 5 desired Engravings.

  • Press the Activate Engraving Support button to start using their effects.

  • The effects of Engraving Support will also be shown in your Character Profile.

The Event will last until February 7, 2024.

Path of the Souleater

A new progression arrives, built to progress a character quickly from 1490 to 1610. This special event includes:

  • A Gear Honing Support Effect applied when honing Brelshaza Ancient Gear from 1540 to 1580 that decreases the amount of gold and materials needed to hone along with increased honing rates.

  • 2x Artisan’s Energy when honing Brelshaza Ancient Gear from 1540 to 1580.

  • Rewards every 10 Item Levels from 1540 to 1580, with a particularly valuable reward at 1580.

  • Special Missions to earn additional Raid & Abyssal Dungeon materials.

While the event is named after the Souleater, it can be used on any character between 1490 and 1610, not just a Souleater. The Event will last until February 7, 2024. Stay tuned for next week’s release notes for a more in-depth look at the new event.
