Lost Ark Weekly Update Announced for March 17 – Update Notes

Lost Ark will shut down its servers for yet another weekly update. The update will occur on Thursday, March 17, at 12 AM PT / 7 AM UTC / 8 AM CET. This update addresses some known issues and might give breathing room to those hurt by the honing feature. As revealed by Amazon Games in previous forum threads, the honing will likely get addressed soon, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see that happening tomorrow.

Even if the official patch notes are missing information about any particular honing changes, the game’s core feature that allows you to make your character stronger might be changed by Smilegate RPG. It’s good to hear that even the developer is leaning towards tinkering the honing chances giving the players a slightly milder outcome.

Below, you can find the complete patch notes for tomorrow’s Lost Ark update without further ado.

Lost Ark Thursday March 17 Update Notes

  • In-game event timers related to Daylight Savings Time changes will be fixed after Monday night’s hotfix did not resolve this issue. Players will need to have DST enabled on their computers for the clock to appear correctly.
  • Because of the issues with in-game timers causing confusion around when the limited-time Arkesia Grand Prix event was taking place, we are providing all players with 3,000 Grand Prix event tokens. This currency will automatically be delivered to your Universal Storage.
    • We are also aware of a bug that prevents players from participating in the Arkesia Grand Prix if they try to complete the event quest with a character that is under level 50. Although this will not be fixed in this update, we are working on a fix to go out during the event period.
  • For users that ran the Tytalos Guardian Raid while it was bugged, we will provide compensation for items that may have been lost. This exact compensation will vary per user since players will have consumed different items during their raid, but may include the following:
    • Awakening Stones
    • Consumable Battle Items
    • Phoenix Feathers
    • Blue Crystals
      • These items will be delivered to your Universal Storage after the maintenance is complete.

If anything new is added we’ll merge it in the list above.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
