MMORPG (multi-player online role-playing game) Lost Ark, officially updated the new class ‘Meteorologist’ and upgraded super-fast growth support event ‘Hyper Express Plus’ and ‘2022 SUMMER Maharaca’ Festival’, it was announced on the 6th (Wednesday) that it started a large-scale summer update full of abundant benefits and things to enjoy.
First, the second class ‘Meteorologist’ of the specialist occupation group has been officially updated. Meteorologists resonate with nature and use various weather phenomena such as sunlight, wind, and rain with their skills.
In particular, whenever you hit an enemy with a skill, you get a ‘Raindrop Gauge’ and when the gauge is full, you can use ‘Fox Rain’, the identity skill unique to meteorologists. If you use Fox Rain, your basic attack and movement skills will change for a certain period of time, and while continuously damaging nearby enemies, you can lead the battle to an advantage by reducing the damage you and your party members receive.
From July 6th (Wednesday) to September 28th (Wednesday), the ‘Hyper Express Plus’ and ‘Jumping Ticket’ events, which are upgraded to a higher-speed growth support event, will be held. Adventurers can use the jumping ticket to immediately grow their character to item level 1,340 and enjoy adventures from ‘South of Bern’. In ‘Hyper Express Plus’, the growth support level has been expanded to item level 1,460, allowing you to quickly reach the continent of ‘Elgasia’. After selecting the desired character, adventurers can perform various event missions according to the level section and receive abundant rewards for super-fast growth.
The rewards attract attention as they consist not only of refining materials for growth, but also benefits that greatly help the overall gameplay, such as ‘engravings’, various ‘jewels’, and battle item boxes. In particular, in the section from item level 1,415 to 1,460, the refining cost discount and refining support effect that increases the refining success probability are applied, enabling faster growth. Lastly, the ‘Story Express Plus’ event for adventurers who want to grow while watching the story of Lost Ark is also prepared with enhanced rewards including support for fostering up to item level 1,340.
Meanwhile, from July 6th (Wednesday) to September 28th (Wednesday), a special summer festival ‘2022 SUMMER Maharaka Festival’ will be held on the island of ‘Maharaka Paradise’ in the game. Adventurers transform into cute ‘Mokokong’ and engage in obstacle racing with ‘Run, Run! You can enjoy fun mini-games such as ‘Mococoz’ and ‘Dookie Douki Pampang’, which soothes ‘Dookie’ from the heat with water balloons. You can exchange ‘Raka Fruit’ for various rewards.
