With the latest update in Lost Ark came the introduction of a new story questline, the Argos Abyss Raid, and a new limited-time event! During the Arkesia Grand Prix, you will obtain Event Coins that you can exchange for rewards! This guide will teach you everything you need to know about the Arkesia Grand Prix in Lost Ark.
Arkesia Grand Prix Event Guide in Lost Ark
The Arkesia Grand Prix is a racing-styled minigame that you can participate in daily. The daily limit is roster bound, meaning you can’t switch characters to race a second time. When you first long into Lost Ark after the update, you will find the Arkesia Grand Prix Manager in the major areas around the world map. A pink quest marker will also appear, showing you where the NPC is. After speaking to the Grand Prix Manager, they will inform you about the new event and how to participate.
The event takes place every two hours during even-hour times. For example, if the server time is 1:00 PM, you must wait until 2:00 PM for the event teleporter to open. Once you reach the event area, you will be teleported into a waiting space before being placed on the race track.
From here, your character rides a small creature known as a Naruni to complete laps around the race track. You are placed on a team of seven players and must use your abilities against the opposing team to win the race. Once you reach the finish line, you will find a bunch of cakes that you can interact with. Your teammates must eat the cakes before the opposing team does to win the event.
Your Naruni comes with four abilities used to propel yourself forward and hinder other players so you can catch up and help your team win first place. The four abilities are as follows:
- Headbutt – When activated, your Naruni will charge forward a short distance. If you hit a player in front of you, you will temporarily stun them.
- Super Naruni! – When activated, your Naruni will shoot a projectile in the direction you are facing. If you hit a player in front of you, you will temporarily stun them.
- Plop Bomb – After activating, a red circle will appear behind you. After a short delay, an explosion will briefly stun any player in the red circle.
- Tough Naruni – Upon activating, you will be granted a temporary shield that prevents you from being stunned.
Upon completing the race, you will be rewarded with Arkesia Event Coins. Speak to the Arkesia Grand Prix Manager again to access the event shop. The shop includes an exclusive Naruni Hat, engraving recipe chests, honing materials and other miscellaneous rewards.
