Logging is one of the Trade Skills available in Lost Ark. Trade Skills are non-combat abilities that allow players to gather various resources and materials which are used in Crafting and other applications. Logging allows players to cut down trees and gather wood. This page covers all information on the Logging Trade Skill.


Lost Ark Logging Guide

Players can unlock the Logging skill along with all other Trade Skills by completing the chain of tutorial quests beginning with Crown of Lakebar in Lakebar Village.

Logging involves cutting down trees in order to harvest wood and timber. Players need to find Logging nodes such as Maple and other special trees. These are represented by a log icon logging nodes icon trade skills lost ark wiki guide on the mini-map. The type of materials available in a node will depend on a few factors:

  • All nodes will give a Common material, with a chance of getting Uncommon and Rare materials.
  • The chance to obtain Uncommon or Rare materials increases with Trade Skill level, certain bonuses on the tool used or by harvesting from a Mysterious variant of the node. Special Trade Skill abilities can also increase the chance of yielding rarer materials.
  • Uncommon materials vary depending on the node.
  • Rare materials vary depending on the location, instead of the node type. For example, for Mining, Iron veins in Yorn will yield different Rare materials compared to Iron veins in Punika. This also applies to Logging.

Once you find a node, switch to Trade Skill mode (default key 'B') and press 'G' to use the Cut Tree ability to begin cutting the tree down. Unique to Logging is the ability for two players to co-operate on a single tree, significantly cutting down on the time required to harvest the node while still rewarding both players with materials. To do this, have each player stand on opposite sides of the tree and press the 'G' key. This will prompt them to pull out a large timber saw which they will co-operatively use to cut the tree down. Small trees will yield two sets of materials when Logging while larger, mature trees will yield three. Note that gathering from the rarer Lush tree nodes will require Level 10 in Logging and unlocking the Lumberjack ability. Materials gathered from Logging are primarily used in Stronghold and Ship upgrades.

Your ability to cut trees will be limited by your available Work Energy, a special resource used to perform Trade Skill actions. Work Energy has a cap of 10,000 and regenerates at a rate of ~30 Energy every 10 minutes.


Logging Tools in Lost Ark

Logging requires the use of a Logging Tool in order to gather materials. Tools can be acquired in many different ways including purchasing from Vendors, Crafting, or received as a reward from Quests and other activities.

When a Trade Skill tool is acquired, it will randomly 'roll' Bonuses which grant special effects when using the tool. Rarity increases the amount of Bonuses that can roll onto a tool when acquired, starting from 1 Bonus with Uncommon tools and up to 5 Bonuses with Relic tools. Each Bonus also has a degree of effectiveness, which is also randomly rolled. See the list on the right for the types of Bonuses available to Logging Tools. 

Each tool also comes with a Durability meter which is depleted every time its respective Trade Skill is used. A tool's durability can be repaired using Silver. However, this will also reduce its Maximum Durability with each subsequent repair. Tools can be sharpened to recover their Max Durability by using Craftsman Tokens purchased with Blue Crystals at the Cash Shop. This is not recommended during the early stages and any Tokens you acquire should be reserved for when you get a higher tier tool that rolls great Bonuses.

Logging Tool Bonuses

The following Bonuses can randomly be rolled onto a Logging Tool when it is acquired. How many of them are rolled depends on the tool's Rarity. The degree of effectiveness is also rolled randomly:

  • Super Armor (Immunity to Paralysis)
  • Increased Gathering Speed
  • Increased Basic Reward drop rate
  • Increased Rare Material drop rate
  • Increased chance for Special Rewards
  • Reduces chance of tool durability loss
