Best Lost Ark Character for the Express Mission Event

The best Lost Ark characters who just reached level 50 and going through Tier 1 will benefit the most out of the Lost Ark Express Mission event. Tier 2 characters can still participate, however they will only be able to make use of the materials that are applicable to their tiers. There is still the Level 4 Clear Reward that all tiers can aim to get as the reward chest will give out the most rewards that are useful for any tier.

Considering that the event lasts for more than 2 months, you may want to hold off participating in the event until a new class gets released. So far, the Glavier has been released along with the event, so players who want to take their new Glaviers to the endgame can participate in the event.

On the other hand, the Destroyer class doesn’t have a definite release date yet; only an approximate release date by the end of May. Not considering possible delays to its release, completing the event within a month’s time should still be doable depending on how much you’ll play.

Best Lost Ark Character for the Express Mission Event

Most importantly, it is vital to note that if you are a veteran Lost Ark player, refrain from playing using your main character. Remember that rewards are bound to the character used and once you select your main, you can no longer change the character chosen for the Lost Ark Express Mission Event.

The goal is to reach from ilvl 302 to ilvl 1100 on a character, so you’ll only waste the opportunity to play this event if you choose the wrong character, or an already high-level character for that matter.
