Tier 3 characters are barred to participate in the event due to going over the gear level restriction, but characters who participated as a lower tier and has reached Tier 3 within the event can still do the missions.

Lost Ark Express Mission Event Rewards and Boosts
There are two ways that your can get your character boosted with this event:
Super Express Missions
The selected character for this event will get three kinds of boosts when it comes to honing, such as:
Growth Boost Effect: Required XP to hone is reduced by 40% for item levels between 1 to 15. This means that you won’t need to use as many Guardian or Destruction stones to reach the 100% required XP for honing.
Level Boost Effect: Between levels 1 to 12, every successful honing attempt will increase the gear level by 2 levels.
Success Rate Up: Success Rate for honing gear goes up by 20%. Applicable for gear between levels 1 to 15.
Remember that only the character who was selected to participate in the event will get the boost when they hone. Also, only gear and weapons under Tier 1 and Tier 2 will be able to get the honing boost.
Super Express Missions and Rewards
Super Express Missions are missions that give out tons of materials and battle items once completed. Missions are divided into four levels and they progressively get more difficult the higher your iLvl becomes. There is also a Bonus level which involves completing several special dungeons.
Higher mission levels get unlocked once all the missions of the previous level are completed. Once a level of missions is completed, you will also receive an additional reward.
Level 1 Missions and Rewards
These missions will help the character reach iLvl 460. Completing all its missions will reward the following:
x2 Uncommon Engraving Effect Support Chest
Level 1 Missions
Mission 1: Reach Item Level 250
Express Equipment Chest
Mission 2: Training Room: Advanced - Learn about Weak Point
x5 Regulus' Light Currency Chest x20 Life Shard Pouch (M)

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.
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.
