You can quest, travel the seas and venture through numerous dungeons in Lost Ark. You can also socialize with certain NPCs and befriend them during your adventures throughout Arkesia. Gaining Rapport from NPCs also nets you various valuable rewards such as gold, skill point potions and exclusive cosmetics. This guide will teach you about Rapport in Lost Ark.
What is Rapport in Lost Ark?
Rapport is a friendship system in Lost Ark that allows you to interact with NPCs. You can give gifts, play music, and use emotes with NPCs every day to gain Rapport. You can also have short conversations and complete short side quests as you level up Rapport. Over time, you will rank up and receive rewards. You can receive many rewards from Rapport rewards, ranging from silver coins up to exclusive titles and skill point potions. If you are looking for long-term cosmetic gathering or stat-boosting, Rapport is a significant way to help with both.
There are five main ways to increase your Rapport with NPCs:
- Having a conversation
- Playing an instrument
- Showing emotes
- Giving gifts
- Completing Rapport quests
The easiest and quickest ways to increase Rapport is by showing an emote, playing your instrument and giving a gift. You can take part in these three actions daily as long as you meet the requirements. However, you can only use emotes and play songs five times each day, so be careful which NPCs you interact with. Additionally, gift-giving is an effective way to raise Rapport if you give a gift that the NPC loves. Many Rapport gifts will include a line in the description stating which NPCs love your chosen gift. Giving an NPC a gift they love will significantly increase the amount of Rapport you receive.
The NPCs you should focus on will depend on what you are trying to accomplish in Lost Ark. If you wish to gain a large amount of gold, NPCs such as Sasha, Avele and Ealyn all give a considerable amount. If you want to find Giant’s Hearts, Beatrice, Nineveh, Calvasus, and Sasha are some of the best choices.
