Lost Ark’s latest update, The Art of War, is now live.

The update not only includes a new advanced class, The Artist, but also the Tulubik Battlefield, where players “have a chance to determine Rowan’s fate and earn rewards in Realm vs. Realm 48v48 matches.”

We also get to dive into progression events, including the Punika Powerpass, Hyper Express Plus, and Story Express events from March 15th to June 14th inclusive, the third Ark Pass, the Arkesia Grand Prix, and several quality of life updates and balance changes.”

Don’t forget that you need to be faction rank 3 and item level 1490 to enter Tulubik Battlefield. If you meet these criteria, simply go to the Rowan’s Battlefield icon on the minimap (it will be under the Welcome Challenge) or go to the entrance to the battlefield in the Great Plains of Regarbank or the Fighter’s Refuge. You can also enter from other locations, such as major cities and your Stronghold.

You can also take part in the Arkesian Grand Prix and take part in Naruni’s little races. It’s been over a year since the event’s western debut, so if you’d like to win event coins and join up to six other players in 7v7 competition, visit the Arkesia Grand Prix Manager for details.

Amazon also confirmed that the “release issue with The Art of War” has now been “resolved”.

“Ultimately, our in-game moderation system required additional configuration, which resulted in the expected delay conveyed in previous posts,” the team explained in a short addendum to the forum post. “The revisions have passed our quality check and we are ready to deliver the content according to our original schedule. Thanks for playing Lost Ark and enjoy the new Artist class!”

Amazon Games recently revealed a bit more about the Lost Ark’s brand new advanced class, the Artist, including explaining why it decided to “do a localization update” that changed the Artists’ skins to make them less sexualized and “better conforming to Western norms”.
