Lost Ark is preparing to launch an Artist as its first Specialist Advanced Class and is also preparing for the continuous launch of some new Specialist Advanced Classes. It will release this Artist Class in “Art of War” update on March 15th.
This Artist Class is one of the new projects of this Lost Ark Academy. The developer also says that Artist Class is the first Specialist Advanced Class to launch this year, but it’s not the only one.
Artist Class, part of this “Art of War” update, will be unlike any Class players have seen before in Lost Ark.
Recently, the developer of Lost Ark updated a post about the latest Lost Ark Academy, which focused on the updated Artist Class. This Artist Class will be able to use Drawing as one of its Combat Skills.
Artist Class can attack the enemy directly or choose to draw a beast to help him fight together during the battle. At the same time, Artist Class also has access to Illusion Powers. Because Artist Class is temporarily the first Specialist Advanced Class in Lost Ark, its skills are quite different for players.
Artist Class is nothing like any other normal Class players have seen before in Lost Ark. Artist Class, as a brand new Class category, is quite unique among the game’s other job rosters.
Artist Class Summons allies with the paintbrush as a weapon. This allows Artist Class to be used as a support class while still being able to deal some damage to enemies.
Artist Class has two fundamental skills. The first is Masterwork: Spectacle, which allows players to capture enemies in a giant scroll while dealing massive damage and reducing their defenses and movement speed. This skill is very suitable for players to use when playing with teammates, so that players can cause more damage to enemies during battle.
The second skill is Masterwork: Eflorescence, which can attack enemies by attracting petals to create a whirlwind, and at the same time provide a protective barrier for teammates.
At the same time, Artist Class also has a special ability of Harmony Orbs, which can further enhance Artist’s two fundamental skills. At the same time, it can also display two powerful skills, Moonfall or Sunrise, which can increase the damage output in a short time or provide healing for injured teammates.
Players can further enhance their Harmony Orb abilities by increasing the attributes of Artist Class. Players can choose to boost Sunrise’s healing stats, or use Moonfall to temporarily crit enemies.
Therefore, Artist Class can be both an effective support and a strong damage output. It mostly depends on how the player wants to use Artist Class. Among them, the player can also improve his healing ability through Full Bloom, or increase his damage ability through Recurrence.
They designed the skills of Artist Class based on its drawing ability, and usually the use of skills is to draw something to produce effects. Just like Paint: Crane Wing, players can summon a Crane by painting, and kill enemies with the help of this Crane.
When using Paint: Drawing Orchids, you can damage enemies by spreading Artist scroll in front of them. There are also some skills that are suitable for Artist as a supporting role, such as Paint: Sunsketch. Players using this skill will not only protect teammates within 24m from damage but also attack nearby enemies.
The publisher of Lost Ark has previously announced that Artist Class will make some changes when it debuts into the western patch, which will make players’ eyes shine.
The publisher stated that while maintaining the authenticity of Artist Class in the original patch, it will also change the character image of Artist Class, which is more suitable for Western aesthetics and conforms to Western game specifications. Therefore, it means that part of the skin of Artist Class has been modified by changing the trousers or tights.
The developer also stated that while making changes to this Artist Class image, it will also try its best to maintain the original mental state of the skin, to ensure that players can operate the character normally while still having a sense of freshness.
The launch of Artist Class has also accelerated the launch of the new Punika Powerpass, Hyper Express Plus and Story Express. While helping new players adapt to Artist Class faster, we also don’t forget to let some old players take part again.
New players and old players returning from this event will have 15 consecutive days of login rewards. These include Recipe Chest, Upgrade Materials, Pheons, Rare Card Pack, and generous Lost Ark Gold rewards.
Lost Ark’s “Art of War” update, besides adding Artist Class, will also add 48V48 and PVP modes and Lost Ark’s third battle pass.
At the same time as this Artist Class update, there are also some other event updates. Among them is Punika Powerpass. Players can earn Punika Powerpass after completing “Berver’s Friend” quest. Players can successfully get rewards as long as they complete the tasks before this event. I believe this should not be too difficult for you.
Another event is Hyper Express Plus, in which players can quickly select the required item materials and quickly upgrade to 1445. A new feature called “Engraving Support System” can be used during this Hyper Express Plus event, which allows players to choose 4 skills to upgrade to level 3 in a short period.
Finally, players can get some important materials in Story Express. If the player does not find these important materials, there is no need to worry too much, because when MMO launches some recent activities, there will be some rewards that players can regain.
