In Lost Ark, Once you are level 50 and have arrived in Bern, do all the yellow quests there to unlock access to high-level content (raids, chaos dungeons, Epona daily quests,...). Here is a guide dedicated to Lost Ark that will help you equip yourself once you reach level 50, from ilvl 280 to 390!

 

 

Also, do your purple quest to get your final and awakening skills (taken from Beatrice in the Trision Gate).

 

 

 

1. Chaos Dungeon: First Set 280

The easiest way to start is to get your base gear 280 from Chaos Dungeons (which you can do three times per day).

The first chaos dungeon (Pirate Bay) allows you to collect the complete set and the first items to improve your set.

Each completed dungeon gives you a chest containing several pieces of the set (randomly).

By completing the quest in the dungeon, you can collect a bonus chest each time.

It is entirely possible to get the full set on the first day of your level 50.

 

 

2. The Other Sets: Crafting, PvP, Raids

There are several other pieces of Equipment. Their respective NPCs craft these.

 

Set related to crafting (Life Gear)

  • This set can be crafted from harvested ingredients or purchased from HV.
  • It will require more ingredients to upgrade.

 

PvP related set

  • This set is obtained in exchange for tokens obtained in the game's PvP content via chests.
  • It will take more tokens to upgrade your set.

 

Raid related set

  • This set is crafted using ingredients collected from the first Raid Guardian (Lumerus).

  • Allows you to collect a maximum of 5 chests per week.
