Lost Ark brings out the Striker for Korean players

Some days it does feel like we’ve been waiting several quarantine’s worth waiting for Lost Ark to finally get its gorgeous polygons over here. So it really doesn’t help our patience to dwell on what Korean players are getting these days, but we’re going to do it anyway!

This month, Lost Ark is introducing the Striker to the game’s server. As MMO Culture reports, the Striker is a sub-class under the Fighter that uses martial arts and giant metal gauntlets to lay down some serious punishment on his foes.

Take a gander of this melee powerhouse in action:

People are gonna be disappointed when they eventually get their hands on this unfortunately. The end game is horrendous, dungeons are capped daily, nothing drops loot just crystals and orbs to upgrade existing skins, progression is purely vertical and focused on ilvl there’s no builds or items you can build around like in a traditional ARPG.

It’s in this weird spot of playing like an ARPG without any of what makes an ARPG fun and then importing gated vertical progression ontop of that. Performance also tanks when you’re in the city like every UE3 game ever.

Saying that the combat is outright brilliant and if Amazon can make some serious changes to the end game there’s a chance. However if they just translate what they have in Korea it won’t last 5 minutes in our market.

… for Korean players

I stopped following this game when it was obvious it wasnt going to be released in the west any time in my lifetime.

Has it actually be released in areas OTHER than Korea?

I’ll add that all of these can be played from other places, with English patches sideloaded, but there are hoops to go thru.

The RU is probably the easiest, but some people think of my.com being shady itself and treat the launcher as a malicious piece of software. But they really do not care that much about others coming in to play.

JP has been knocking off some of the known VPN IPs lately and is prob the most pita to get set up.

-and KR has that national pin # that has to be tied to a KR phone and gets reset from time to time needing that phone to resolve – just to shake people out.

For an idea of the latest steps/workarounds check the discord linked via the reddit sub – https://old.reddit.com/r/lostarkgame/

NA/EU publisher has announced to be Amazon already – when it makes it here.

I think this was picked up by Amazon.
