Lost Ark is an MMORPG, and with that comes the many problems that come with that type of game. The server you join can make a huge difference in your gameplay experience and time put into the game, so you need to make sure you join the right one.
Zinnervale is so popular in Lost Ark because it is one of the most populated servers in the game. Lost Ark is currently split into 3 servers: Zinnervale, Kazea (KR exclusive), and Lost Ark Prime (NA/EU exclusive). Lost Ark Prime is basically the “main” Lost Ark server even though it’s not released in NA or EU yet.
Kazea is the other KR-exclusive server that was closed off for months while Lost Ark was in its early access phase. When Lost Ark finally exited the “early access” stage, Kazea opened up to Korean players and became one of their most populated servers.
Which server should you join?
You should find a server that is primarily filled with players who want to do the same thing as you. Lost Ark has a variety of content from dungeons to PVP, so you can pick and choose what type of gameplay experience you want.
Lost Ark is a good example of a game that has a lot of differences between its servers besides just population count. Lost Ark Prime, Zinnervale’s sister server, is mostly filled with people who are looking to PVP and do dungeons.
Lost Ark Prime is a PvP server while Zinnervale has a PvE focus, which means Lost Ark Prime will have more opportunities to PVP than Lost Ark Zinnervale. Zinnervale has the most popular open-world dungeon in Lost Ark: Crimson Temple.

Why can’t you find a dungeon group?
Players have a lot of things that they want to do in Lost Ark. You can spend your time doing one thing until you feel comfortable enough to try something else. It’s common for players to come into Lost Ark and not know what exactly they’re going to be playing the most.
You probably can’t find a dungeon group because all the groups are either full or there are not many groups doing them at all. Lost Ark is a game where you can play the game the way that you want to.
If you don’t see any dungeons running, it isn’t really restricting your gameplay experience so you’ll be able to do whatever it is that you want to do. If you can’t do a dungeon, then go and do some quests somewhere else until you see some people getting ready for it.
There are also discords for the game that allow you to talk to other Lost Ar players and coordinate when they are doing dungeons so you don’t need to scramble to get a group together.
When can you do dungeons?
You can do open-world dungeons at any level, but you need to be at least level 50 in Lost Ark to start doing instanced dungeons.
Once you are level 50 Lost Ark will automatically place you into a dungeon group because Lost Ark scales the difficulty of their dungeons based on how many players are in the party. This means that Lost Ark has a lot of dungeons that require 5 players to run and Lost Ark requires you to be in a party when you go into one.
