Weekly content is the bread and butter of Lost Ark, and so are the Guardian Raids. In the May Roadmap, developers are likely to combine the two, and give us new weekly Guardian Raid content.
Trial Guardian Raids will add a new weekly activity for players looking for a challenge. Each week, players can attempt to defeat three Trial Guardians.
Every Guardian has their own required item level to enter, and each week one Guardian will rotate out, replaced by a different foe.
Differing from a normal Guardian Raid, Trial Guardian Raids will apply ‘Scale of Harmony’ so that your characters’ item level will be adjusted appropriately to that of their enemy.
Additionally, players cannot use the Battle Workshop in the raid region. However, with increased challenge comes increased rewards. Rewards for each Challenge Guardian can be obtained once per roster, per week, and offer more diverse rewards than normal Guardian Raids.
May will also introduce a bunch of quality of life changes, including but not limited to:
- The ability to check daily & weekly content participation in a new menu,
- UI updates,
- Improved party finder & party invites,
- Updated loot dismantling,
- Convenience features for Market/Auction House,
- A few fun features, like being able to randomly summon favorited mounts and new hairstyles for customization!
It seems that developers will not be burning themselves out with the updates coming in April, as May will have us looking forward to quite a few of its own content. If they don't decide to scrap it, that is.
