Lost Ark Pheon - How to get and what it does

Lost Ark is an MMORPG brimful of content for players to engage with.

It offers a vast, vibrant world for RPG aficionados to explore and unravel all kinds of secrets in Arkesia. At times, it might even be confusing due to all the different mechanics and things you can do in this game, and that's not only true for the content the game has to offer.

Lost Ark is a free-to-play (FTP) game, and as such, it has all kinds of different currencies, both in-universe and purchasable with real money, which provides players with different resources to spend on various activities, items, unlocks, and upgrades.

MMOs from the Far East are especially known for the overwhelming number of currencies, and Lost Ark is coming from South Korea.

One such currency that players are not exactly sure how to get and for what to use is Pheon. If Pheon causes confusion for you as well, read on.

Lost Ark Pheon explained

First things first, Pheon is a Legendary item that's bound to your roster on picking it up.

Some players are confused by the "Bound to Roster" part, so let's clear that first.

This essentially means that you can only use this item on that server where you first got it. All your characters on that server can use that item, but not simultaneously. Go to the "Storage Keeper" in any town (the chest icon), and you can move any "Roster Bound" items into the "Roster Storage" for your other characters to use it.

This "Bound to Roster" thing essentially means that this item can be used server-wide, but not account-wide. Other than that, you can not sell, destroy, or dismantle them.

Now, when it comes to their actual purpose in the game. They are essentially a currency designed to fight off scalpers. They are used when buying some rare items in the Auction House, either when you are trading or bidding on an auction.

Redditor Artaica explained well their purpose in Lost Ark.

"You only spend pheons to buy high-end gear, it's effectively a trading tax to help discourage people from buying their way to the top, " he wrote. "Also helps keep prices on high-rolled accessories relatively low by putting a bottleneck on-demand, plus slows down gold sellers."

The next thing you will want to know is how to get them. There are two ways as far as we know.

The first way is to buy them with Blue Crystals. You can buy the Blue Crystals with Royal Crystals, and you buy Royal Crystals with real-life money (we've warned you, there's a lot of currencies in Lost Ark).

The second option is to buy them by using Gold to buy Blue Crystals and then buy Pheons with the Blue Crystals.

With that being said, that's all you need to know about Pheons in Lost Ark.
