The highly popular MMO Lost Ark has a new update that introduces the Kadan Story Episode and Arkesia Grand Prix.

The Kadan Story Episode gives players a new storyline to uncover, new quests to complete, and new islands to explore. Before players can take on the new end-game questlines, some requirements have to be met. First, they must complete the continent of Feiton along with the following quests:

  • Yorn: Let There Be Light
  • Whispering Islet: Start of Our Story
  • Illusion Bamboo Island: End of the Trials

Second, players who venture into the new Isteri and Illusion Bamboo Islands are recommended to have an item level of 1,100.

In addition to the new questlines, the Arkesia Grand Prix provides a good change of pace from intense Abyssal Raids and other endgame content. This limited-time event mode pits two teams of seven players against each other in a fun and enjoyable race.

There’s an NPC called the “Arkesia Grand Prix Manager'' located in every major city (except for Prideholme). Players must be at least Level 50 to enter. This event mode is available until the April Update is launched.
