Lost Ark Gear Progression Guide
We will tell you what is the armor in Lost Ark, how it affects the gameplay. Furthermore, we'll give information on how to collect the best equipment step by step without much effort. Enjoy reading!
Equipment in this great game is a direct indicator of the strength of the seeker. For starters, let's note that all armor divided into 4 stages from the weakest to the strongest: rare, epic, legendary, relics.
In addition to the basic characteristics – rarity, level, etc., the armor has such a characteristic as quality. It only impacts the additional effects, without altering the others. However, a character with higher quality will be stronger.
The stronger the equipment, the more roads are open to the character. For example, it doesn't make sense to go to the hardest continent with 340 armors. That's why Lost Ark is very difficult and demanding regarding farming and character enhancement.
Sets only obtained through constant raids and raids in dungeons, as well as monotonous mining of huge amounts of resources. Unfortunately, not everyone has the patience and strength for this!
Tier 1 Progression — North Vern and Rohendel

How to quickly get the maximum level of items??
It's worth realizing that Lost Ark is an Asian game, so the gameplay has certain nuances. There's a lot of farming to do, killing tens and hundreds and hours of running around the continent, gathering groups & killing bosses.
At the same time, as we said earlier, the closer a character is to a top outfit, the more difficult and time-consuming the gathering process is. Furthermore, in this game it's simply impossible to jump from the easiest items to the strongest – a lot of action required anyway.
For this reason, ExpCarry offers help to anyone who wants to save a lot of time and effort, while going through the process of becoming a hero in full. Professional gamers are ready to take care of your quest now. Of course, the process will be completely safe and open.
