How many Classes are available in Lost Ark?

Lost Ark features 5 Main Class Archetypes that divide into many Advanced sub-classes. There are so far a total of 15 Classes to pick from in this MMORPG. Each Class features a unique set of abilities and gamestyle that sets it apart and provides flair to their combat and gameplay. Players can opt for different classes for the different roles of the game, based on their preferred activities and situations

There are more Classes available in other regions. In time, these other Classes will also be released into the western version of Lost Ark. Due to balance issues, upcoming changes to these Classes, and localization requirements, the decision was made to not include them in our version at launch but to add them post-launch. The naming conventions for some classes were also changed to match the intended effect.

Lost Ark offers 5 powerful base classes; Warrior, Martial Artist, Gunner, Mage, and Assassin. Each class presents a distinct gameplay style, look, and role with their own strengths and weaknesses. From the dieselpunk deserts where the Gunslinger roams to the dark castles where Assassins lurk in the shadows, each Class brings a unique flavor and backstory to Lost Ark.

Are Lost Ark Classes Gender Locked?

All Classes are Gender-locked in Lost Ark. However, players can customize the look of their character with a variety of face and hairstyle options. There are also a myriad of in-game customizations via the equipment and skins systems.
