Why Do You Start at Level 10 in Lost Ark?

Why Do You Start at Level 10 in Lost Ark?

If you’re like most MMO players, you probably started playing Lost Ark wondering why everyone starts at level 10. Why don’t we start off like every other game and work our way up? What’s the point of starting at level 10?

Players start at level 10 in Lost Ark because the developers removed the prologues that used to be played at the start of each character. That prologue acted as a sort of tutorial, and in it, players would level up to 10 while learning how to play.

It’s a really confusing thing to do, and it seemingly makes no sense to most players. But, nevertheless, that’s the way things are going to be unless the developers change it.

There are lots of other things that Lost Ark players need to know, so keep reading to learn more.

What is the Max Level in Lost Ark?

Lost Ark 3

The maximum level in Lost Ark is currently 60. During the beta, the cap was 50, but upon release, the developers increased it by 10 levels. This is a pretty good thing because the majority of MMO players like to hit max level as quickly as possible, and then grind out dungeons or PvP.

The developers at Smilegate Entertainment have made it clear that they will increase this limit further in the future, so be prepared for more levels down the road.

How Long Does It Take to Get to Level 60?


To get to level 10 to 60, you can expect to spend between 60 and 90 hours. The exact amount of time it’ll take you depends on how much game-time you get to play, whether or not there are bugs in the game that prevent you from progressing, and so forth.

Lost Ark isn’t really about leveling up as quickly as possible, but grinding out levels so that you can enjoy the other aspects of the game. That’s why it’ll probably take most players a little longer than usual to hit max level.

It’s pretty fast leveling if we compare it with other MMOs out there like World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV.

What Do You Do When You Hit Level 50?

Once you hit levels 50-60 in Lost Ark, there are still plenty of things for you to do. The game doesn’t end at max level – it only begins.

In fact, the best part of the game is yet to come, and that’s when players can start experiencing all that Lost Ark has to offer. There are new areas to explore, new dungeons to conquer, and new bosses to fight.

Not only that, but max-level players can also join in on the fun by participating in end-game content like raids and PvP. The possibilities are endless, so don’t get bored now that you’ve hit 50!

Can You Transfer Servers in Lost Ark?

Lost Ark 2

The simple answer is no, you can’t transfer a character to a different server. If you’re not happy with your server choice, the only way to change it is by making a new character.

This can be particularly frustrating if you’ve spent a lot of time and money on that character; however, there’s nothing much you can do about it because they don’t allow transfers at this point in time.

Server queues are also a common occurrence, so if you don’t mind joining the back of the line, then it might not be that big of a deal to you.
