Once they reach level 1415, they will be able to challenge themselves to the “Commander Raid”. "Jumps" can instantly turn your character to level 1302, and "Hyper Express" is a special event that provides major rewards such as materials, shillings, and gold to your “Hyper Express character” between level 1302 and 1415.
In addition, the "Astalgia" update will showcase a new growth support event "Story Express", for adventurers who love stories. Through "Story Express", new adventurers can experience Lost Ark's renowned production and story, reduce the time needed to grow, and enjoy Lost Ark’s world. "Story Express" is only available for new characters and provides various rewards as the story unfolds. This can help characters grow rapidly to level 1302.
