Lost Ark Awakening Guide

What are Awakening Skills?

This is a fairly new system in MMORPG that was first introduced in Lost Ark. Awakening skills are different from common skills and offer powerful benefits for your class. This is considered as the 'ultimate' skill of each class. Each class has two awakening skills, and choosing between them depends on how your battle goes in the long run. Awakening skills could deal much damage or buff you from a given time. Accordingly, unlocking these skills is challenging, and players must complete a long quest line to acquire them. This guide will outline how to unlock Awakening Skills and how to use them in Lost Ark.


How to Use Awakening Skills?

Awakening Skills are your ultimate abilities that can enhance your character or your damage-dealing skills that can turn the tide of the battle. YOu can only have one Awakening skill active at once, and using them cost Chaos Shard, which you can buy from most General Merchandise Vendor in every major city for 250 Silver.


Using Awakening Skills effectively also requires some consideration on your builds. Most of these ultimate abilities push a class toward a certain specialty. For example, the Bard's Symphonia skill shields your teammates and deals good damage. In comparison, the bard's 2nd awakening skill is more like dealing great damage by sacrificing a bit of survivability. Awakening Skills only unlock once you reach level 50.


First Awakening Quest

Once you reach level 50 and enter North Vern, you can follow your Main Story Quest, which is highlighted as blue until you're asked to unlock your first end-game content: Chaos Dungeon. After this, Beatrice will notify you to visit her in Trixion. You can do so by using the Song of Trixion found in your Music Sheet (F2) and accepting her purple adventure quest. Completing it will reward your class's final level 50 skill and the Awakening Skill. Check your mailbox after completing the tasks and consume the items to unlock the skills. Take note that each class has a different quest location.


  • Warrior - East Luterra
  • Mage - East Luterra
  • Martial Artist - Anikka
  • Assassin - North Vern
  • Gunner - Arthetine


Note: Some classes aren't required to have the 2nd awakening skills, but if you plan to create alts that use their 2nd awakening skill effectively, you need to finish the 2nd awakening quest. Additionally, having two awakening skill in your arsenal helps makes you more versatile, which could help you finish some of the hardest raids, such as Vykas or Valtan Legion Raid.

2nd Awakening Quest

Your quest will start after you finish your Main Story Quest in Rohendel. This quest can be activated in Rothun near the mailbox.
