Lost Ark Ship Upgrades, Required Materials, Sailing Guide

Share

Lost Ark, the popular MMORPG, offers players the opportunity to set sail on epic adventures on their trusty ships. As you navigate the vast ocean, your ship becomes your lifeline. In this guide, we will explore everything you need to know about Lost Ark ship upgrades to sailing in Lost Ark.

When you first embark on your sailing journey in Lost Ark, you will encounter your ship and its various settings. Let’s take a closer look at what each element does:

Active Crew

Your crew is the heart and soul of your ship. They contribute to its performance and provide unique abilities during sailing cooperative events. To manage your crew, right-click any crew slot or click on the Crew List button at the bottom center of the screen. From there, you can select the crew members you want to add or remove from your active crew.

Ship Selection

Lost Ark offers a variety of ships, each with its own strengths, weaknesses, and unique sailors. When selecting a ship, consider factors such as speed, resistance, and durability. Some ships may excel in specific areas, so choose wisely based on the events you plan to participate in.

Ship Customization

Make your ship truly yours by customizing its appearance. You can equip skins, change sail colors and designs, and even rename your ship. Additionally, you can repair your ship at ports or marinas for a cost in Silver.

Ship Skills

All ships in Lost Ark are equipped with the same set of skills that are essential for sailing cooperative events. These skills include Treasure Salvaging, Harpoon Throw, Stun Harpoon Throw, and Dragnet. Mastering these skills is crucial for success in cooperative events.

Ship Durability and Water Resistance

Your ship’s durability is displayed in the ship settings window. It is important to keep an eye on your ship’s durability, as it determines how long your ship can withstand the hazards of the sea. Additionally, different hazardous water levels require specific resistances. These resistances include Kelp Beds, Sandstorm Seas, Siren Seas, Cold Snap Seas, Tempest Seas, and Dead Waters. Understanding and preparing for these resistances is key to surviving and thriving in sailing cooperative events.

Crew Members

Your crew members play a vital role in sailing cooperative events. While you will obtain some crew members through the main story quests, you can recruit additional crew members by exchanging Pirate Coins or sailing coins with Merchant Ships in continent harbors. Prices for crew members vary based on their rarity. You can also acquire crew members from Stronghold Trade Merchants, Rapport Rewards, Collectible Rewards, and Treasure Map Rewards.

Sailing Co-op Events

Sailing Co-op events are a thrilling way to test your skills and earn rewards in Lost Ark. These events take place three times a day and offer various challenges that require teamwork and strategy. Here are some of the event types you can encounter:

Harvest Floating Souls

In this event, you must interact with floating objects in the Dead Water areas to harvest as many souls as possible. Be cautious of orbs that transform into ghosts and can damage your ship. This event rewards sailing coins based on your performance.

Jellyfish Hunt

The Jellyfish Hunt event requires you to use your harpoon throw skill to shoot jellyfish. The more jellyfish you kill, the more sailing coins you earn. Focus on killing purple jellyfish for higher rewards, but be mindful of green jellyfish as well.

Marlin Fishing

In the Marlin Fishing event, your task is to eliminate marlin fish using your harpoon throw skill. Coordinate with other players to stun the marlin and increase your chances of defeating them. This event is exclusive to Cold Snap Waters.

Barrel Collecting

Compete against another team in collecting barrels of your team’s color. Red barrels provide extra sailing coins, so be sure to grab them when they appear. This event requires quick thinking and coordination to secure victory.

Treasure Salvaging

The Treasure Salvaging event is a classic sailing co-op event. Sail into the circle area and use your treasure salvage button to collect treasures. Keep an eye out for golden boxes, which offer additional sailing coins.

Gate Events

Gate Events are special sailing events that take place three times a week. To participate, you need a key obtained from regular sailing co-op events. These events offer unique challenges and the opportunity to earn valuable rewards, including treasure maps.


The ability to upgrade ships becomes available after quite a while – specifically at Level 420. After reaching the required level, the character will receive all the required items inside a Ship Material Chest. To begin upgrading the vessel, open up the menu and click on the ‘Upgrade’ button.

Another thing to keep in mind is that additional items can be purchased with Pirate Coins – currency dedicated to sea-related activities. We have made a detailed guide on how to farm these Pirate Coins in a separate post.

As for the best ships to upgrade, there are no right or wrong answers there. It all comes down to player preference, playstyle, desired stats, etc. However, a lot of the population tends to incline toward something like Astray due to its mobility or Estoque.

However, the thing that is more crucial is that a ship is nothing without a decent crew that mans it, even if it is fully upgraded. Therefore, it is a good idea to have a solid crew on the vessel. It is not every day that someone comes across the Nightmare Ghost Ship in the open sea.

This is all we have got in how to upgrade vessels in Lost Ark. For more help on the game, be sure to check out our detailed Lost Ark wiki page.

Gunfire, Forest, Explosions & More During Game Events. Compatible with All Games/Platforms; 6 scents Included.
