All you need to know about increasing your Rapport in Lost Ark.

rapport

Rapport in Lost Ark is a system where you build a relationship between you and certain NPCs in the game. Rapport can be gained through various means and as your relationship towards an NPC grows, you will unlock more quests and get more rewards.

In this guide, we will talk about the Rapport system and how you can easily cultivate your relationship with Lost Ark’s NPCs.

How to Unlock Rapport with an NPC in Lost Ark

There are only certain NPCs who you can build Rapport with, and you will meet most of them just by going through the main quests. Some of the NPCs can only be interacted for Rapport once you meet a certain Virtue Stat requirement or once you have completed a certain quest.

You can also easily spot an NPC you can establish Rapport with within an area by using the Map (M Key) and filtering NPC > Rapport NPC. They will also show up as NPCs with floating hearts above their heads in the overworld.

How to Increase Rapport in Lost Ark

Rapport in Lost Ark can be increased in different ways:

  1. by giving gifts
  2. by showing particular emotes
  3. by playing songs

Each NPC have different preferences when it comes to the emotes, songs, and gifts and the amount of Rapport points that you get from each action will also vary.

Your relationship towards an NPC increases as you reach certain levels of Rapport. The Rapport tier is listed from lowest to highest tier below:

  • Neutral 1
  • Neutral 2
  • Amicable 1
  • Amicable 2
  • Amicable 3
  • Friendly 1
  • Friendly 2
  • Friendly 3
  • Trusted

Some NPCs have additional requirements other than Rapport points to increase their tier, such as the Virtue Stat requirement. You have to reach a certain amount of Wisdom, Courage, Charisma, and Kindness before you can move on to your next stage of relationship.

Best Gifts to Gain Rapport in Lost Ark

Most of the gifts that you get from doing certain quests only give out around 300-450 Rapport points, while there are some gifts of Relic and Legendary tiers that can give out 2,000 to 10,000 points, but these are usually bought by using premium currency from Nada who is the Rapport Trade Merchant or given as part of the rewards from a chest or from the Adventurer’s Tome.
