Can You Solo Guardian Raids in Lost Ark?

Can You Solo Guardian Raids in Lost Ark?

The world of Lost Ark is exceptionally expansive. With a whole range of raiding options to choose from, you will rarely experience boredom, and the guardian raids are a prime example. They let you, and your teammates encounter several challenges and grant high-quality rewards in exchange.

The game recommends joining these raids as a group. However, a freak of nature such as you might be thinking about soloing the raid. Being an avid MMO player can give you incentives for tracking down and defeating these creatures solo.  While we respect that sentiment, it is better if you don’t. 

The Guardian Raids can be done solo in Lost Ark without dying. However, challenging higher levels with your party can yield you much better loot in general. Therefore, going solo is not the play unless you want to set a personal milestone. 

With that said, the difficulty bumps on a significant level once you set foot on your solo journeys. Therefore, it is better to know how a guardian raid works in order to understand the ins and outs.

Guardian Raid: Rewards

Successful completions can grant you valuable rewards. Guardian raids are a great way of farming jewelry and engravings. With that said, here are all the rewards:

  • Raid Tier 1: (All T1) Jewelry, Stone Fragments, Ability Stones, Class Engraving Books (Uncommon and Rare), Galewind Rune (Uncommon)
  • Raid Tier 2: (All T1) Jewelry, Stone Fragments, Ability Stones, Class Engraving Books (Uncommon and Rare), Galewind Rune (Rare)
  • Raid Tier 3: (All T2) Jewelry, Stones, Ability Stones, Class Engraving Books (Rare and Epic), Galewind Rune (Rare)

All in all, soloing a guardian boss will grant you bonus rewards. However, it will take more time, effort, and skill to pull this off. Rather than going for a solo Tier 1, it is better to form a party for a Tier 2 or Tier 3 conquest and vice versa.
