Fortunately, we have an easy solution that's worth using - Knowledge Transfers! This guide will explain everything you need to know about this handy in-game boosting mechanic and how to use it to level up your alternative accounts in Lost Ark. So, without further ado, let's get right into it.
What is Knowledge Transfer in Lost Ark?
Knowledge Transfer is an in-game mechanic that allows you to level up your alternate accounts autonomously through the main storyline without spending real-world currency. Instead, players can buy a Knowledge Transfer using in-game gold.
By purchasing the Knowledge Transfer, the character will be sent out for "training" for eight hours (in real-world time). While training, they will perform a run-through of previous quests by themselves, levelling up in the process.
Essentially, the Knowledge Transfer mechanic is an automatic levelling mechanic that requires no hassle or time on the person playing. Although it will cost you in-game Gold, it's definitely worth using!
How to do Knowledge Transfer in Lost Ark?
Notably, players must have (i) already completed the main storyline of the continent in which they want to use the Knowledge Transfer. They must also have (ii) manually levelled at least one character to Level 50. Lastly, players must have (iii) unlocked the Island Stronghold and access the Training Zone.
Note: The requirements for Knowledge Transfers will become progressively more costly the further you progress in the game.
For example, if you purchase a Knowledge Transfer for North Vern, you will need to have completed its questline and have your character Level 50. In addition, you will also need to have Item Level 10, plus 600 Gold.
However, if you want to purchase a Knowledge Transfer for Punika, you will need to have completed that questline and have an Item Level 1100, plus have 2400 Gold.
Players can use Knowledge Transfers immediately once the criteria mentioned above are met. Also, if you're wondering, yes, you can still use your character while they are "training"; however, you will only receive the levelling bonus from the Training Zone after the eight hours.
Furthermore, you can cancel the Knowledge Transfer at any time; however, you will only receive the experience bonus relative to the time spent in training. So, for example, you will receive half the total experience for half the time spent in training.
When the Knowledge Transfer begins, players must direct the chosen character to read a book in a separate tutorial area. Followingly, the character will receive all relevant experience points and base items after the chosen questlines on the continent have been completed.
