Lost Ark Weekly March 4 Update Notes

Aura of Chaos is finally fixed

The time to drop the nerf hammer has arrived, as Amazon Games and Smilegate RPG shut down the western region for an update. Aside from the promised balances and nerfs, this update addresses numerous bugs as Aura of Chaos, the quest from the Whispering Islet given by Nineveh is finally being addressed so players can continue with the story.

Other than that, the update introduces a lot of balancing issues and a Tier 1 and Tier 2 content nerf. More precisely, plenty of Guardian and Abyssal dungeons are being addressed so that players do not struggle and head to Tier 3 easier. According to many, the game director of Lost Ark wants everyone to join Tier 3, since Tier 3 is where the game becomes interesting to play. It is also when the grind becomes real.

The servers are still down which means the deployment has not been over yet. For the full list of patch notes, check the segment below.
