Smilegate’s latest media conference in Seoul revealed a tiny bit of information I’m sure everyone will be interested in.. and that is that Lost Ark is finally launching into open beta, albeit in South Korea only – but that’s a start. In a move I didn’t see coming, NCSoft announced that next month, Lineage II Classic will be hitting players with a huge nostalgia trip as it launches in all its original grindy glory.

The highly anticipated isometric action MMORPG Lost Ark from SmileGate is launching into open beta in South Korea on November 7th, 2018. It's been a long road to open beta ever since the game's first closed beta began in late 2015. The game will get regular big updates called seasons with story updates titled episodes, much like Guild Wars 2. No word on when an English launch is happening, but I suspect we'll hear about it sometime in 2019.

The Lost Ark Online Closed Beta offered a ton of end-game content that kept users busy throughout the whole test. I spent my last day of Lost Ark Online trying to figure out the current gear progression in order to prepare for the next test. I wanted to share my own personal findings below and the various ways to gear up along with where to hunt for the best items. It's probably not as detailed as other sites since I can't fully read Korean, but I tried my best and I hope you find the info below useful. Field Boss vs World Boss During the 1st Closed Beta players weren't bound to farming a single monster, dungeon, or area for items.
