Under the Arkesian Sun also brings back Event Guardians, new cosmetics, and more. We have broken down everything you need to know from the official developer patch notes below. 

Lost Ark Patch Notes - Event Guardians

The Event Guardians have now returned to Arkesia, offering players a chance to enjoy a fun new take on Guardian Raids, in which you'll hunt down three Guardians (alone or with a group) in an arena with the Scale of Balance in effect. To enter, you must have a Combat Level of 50 or higher and an Item Level of 250 or higher.

Taking down the Event Guardian will cause it to drop buffs that stack up to three times at maximum. And the buffs will massively increase your damage output. 

Tokens will drop in a rewards chest after defeating all three Guardians and can be claimed once per day per character. Tokens earned from Event Guardians can be spent at an event vendor, which offers a variety of valuable rewards each week.

Lost Ark Patch Notes - Pet Ranch

The Pet Ranch is a new area in the Stronghold where Pets can play, grow into more useful companions, and assist you in earning valuable rewards. Pets assisting adventurers across Arkesia are ready to help their worthy leaders even more by baking Jam Cookies and earning Pet Expertise to level up and unlock new abilities.

Pets can be upgraded to Legendary by achieving the maximum level of Pet Expertise and spending Pet Growth Tokens, which can be obtained by exchanging Jam Cookies. Several features become available once a Pet is upgraded to Legendary. 

Legendary Pets are given a (random) powerful skill, and one of the three effects granted by the skill will be applied to you while in combat at random intervals. There are currently six Pet Skills that can be unlocked and switched between at random.

Lastly, in the Pet Ranch Lost Ark Academy, you can learn more about the Pet Ranch, Legendary Pets, and the rewards you can earn. 

Lost Ark Patch Notes - Maharaka Festival & Blooming Mokokos

The Maharaka Tree's leaves are said to bring good luck to Maharaka Paradise. During the Maharaka Festival, players will be tasked to collect as many as they can and exchange them for valuable rewards.
