Sink your fangs into the late-release Lost Ark Halloween festivities and new Achates Trial Guardian Raid.
Celebrate Lost Ark Halloween with Raids, Events, and Spooky Shop Items
The Lost Ark Halloween update has finally landed, with some seasonal treats to boot. Although, because Amazon Games dropped the ball by releasing their most terrifying raid a month too early, the latest Lost Ark raid is a simple bread-and-butter dragon boss. Which is more intimidating than spooky. But it's made up for by a smattering of Halloween cosmetics and pets, so we're willing to let them off this time.
The headliner for the Lost Ark Halloween update comes in the form of the Guardian Mystic, formerly known as the Herald of Vairgrys and the Ark Carrier. This multi-monikered monster has been casting some dangerous mist from the permeated chaos and must, therefore, be put down. The Guardian Mystic Abyss Raid will run for three weeks and requires an Item Level of 1302 to tackle.
For an extra spicy challenge, however, the Vykas Legion Raid is now available to tackle at Infernal difficulty. And the new Achates Trial Guardian Raid will offer a similar level of difficulty alongside accolades aplenty for the first and fastest teams to defeat it (in the form of special titles). To give everybody a fighting chance at these titles, the Achates Trial Guardian Raid will drop on Saturday, October 29th at 19:00 UTC.
Event-wise, players can now enjoy the Aldebaran Harvest Festival - a traditional Arkesian festival that celebrates the god of life, Aldebaran. This festival will be held on the Mokomoko Night Market Island, where a new Island Soul and Una's Task have been added in aid of the festivities.
Taking part will net players some gift sets, which can be used to buy items including Card Packs and Honing Support Selection Chests. This event will come to an end on December 7th.
As for the scarier elements of the Lost Ark Halloween update, a slew of stylish-yet-spooky threads are now available to purchase from the shop, along with some edgy Hipster Skins that include a gravestone hammer. A collection of creepy stronghold structures, a cute jack-o-lantern pet, and a new pumpkin carriage mount have also been added.
