- Is the Lost Ark server you are own extremely crowded and there are long queues?
- A possibility here would be to transfer your character to another Lost Ark server.
- However, this awesome game functionality is limited to Korea, for the time being.
- Developers said they are still testing the feature but it might not come to us all.
Well, nowadays, the situation is pretty simple. Gamers are either playing Elden Ring or going against monsters, as well as each other, in Lost Ark.
Lost Ark is an isometric 2.5D fantasy massively multiplayer online action role-playing game. It is co-developed by Tripod Studio and Smilegate’s game development subsidiary Smilegate RPG.
And, like many MMOs, Lost Ark asks you to select a server when creating your character, and the server you choose is extremely important, as friends must select the same server to play together.
However, as Lost Ark’s player count continues to explode, you might struggle to get into the same server without experiencing long queues and wait times.
That being said, many players are now wondering whether they can change servers in Lost Ark, making it possible for them to transfer characters to team up with friends later on.
Can I transfer my Lost Ark character to a different server?
We don’t mean to be the bearers of bad news but, you can’t really do that anywhere else except Korea.
When you make a character, it becomes linked to a server and cannot move to another, which means that, if you want to play with a friend, you need to select the same servers during the character creation process.
You can still create multiple characters in Lost Ark, so at least we have that. Everyone gets six character slots for free in Lost Ark, and each of these characters can live on a different server.
Thus, you could actually build a character now and hop into any server that has a free slot, and then build another character to play through Lost Ark with a friend when there are fewer server queues.
With 5 classes and 15 subclasses to try out, there are plenty of character options to explore, so there’s no need to limit yourself to just one character.
A post you can find on the Lost Ark official forum clarifies the situation and explains why this addition will take some time to be implemented, if it ever will be.
As the forum post says, the Europe Central region is at capacity and unfortunately, there is no way to increase the number of players per world in Europe Central.
Adding more servers is not possible based on the complexity of all the systems that need to work together.
Due to not being able to continue expanding Europe Central capacity, we quickly spun up Europe West. This is an appealing option for new players or for players who have not significantly progressed on Europe Central.
The problem for most fans is that moving to a new server means starting fresh and abandoning whatever characters they made before.
You could redeem Founders Pack and Starter Pack rewards on another server for a bit, but that’s not a proper solution to the problems.
As the statement mentions, the Korean version recently implemented server transfers for Lost Ark, but who knows if that option will make it over to the west.
So, if you want to escape the queues, we suggest moving to a less populated server with your friends and creating a new situation there.
Its all up to you, depending on your preferences, so let us know how it went in the comments section below.
