In the Lost Ark May Update, a brand new Guardian Raid is coming - Deskaluda. Just like in the Valtan Legion Raid, players are advised to bring an item level 1415 character before challenging Deskaluda. Unlike Legion Raids, players can actually play Guardian Raids alone. This new Guardian Raid will also drop materials that can be used to craft Relic rare gear.

Warriors have always been a popular class in Lost Ark, and players who have been hard at work on the Warrior's way will soon find a new path to progress in the Lost Ark May Update - the hammer-wielding Destroyer, Destroyer is the warrior's fourth advanced class. Destroyers' attacks are catastrophic, can crush anything that stands in their way, plus they can bend gravity to their will slowing, launching, pushing, and pulling enemies, ultimately destroying enemies. Destroyers deal massive stagger damage, making them useful members of any party.

Challenge Guardian Raids will add a new weekly activity where players can earn rewards based on the difficulty of the challenges they conquer. Each Guardian has its own required item level to enter, and one Guardian is rotated out each week to be replaced by another Guardian. These special raids will use the Scale of Balance to boost you to the appropriate item level.
New Quests And Open World Activities
