Lost Ark Update: Patch Notes for February 17th Release

Published

Lost Ark made its Western debut last week and hastily ascended to the most-played game on Steam. The launch was, however, not perfect. Server queues in some European regions and a host of other setbacks knocked a dent into Lost Ark’s launch success and made numerous hotfix updates to the game a necessity. 

Today, Lost Ark receives its first major update to address various issues not fixed in the hotfix updates, and we have the patch notes: 

Lost Ark Update: Patch Notes for February 17th Release
  • Fixed the Royal Crystal refunds issue where currency can get stuck or remain ‘pending’ while using the exchange. 
  • Solved the issue causing Procyon’s compass schedule to show the incorrect time for Adventure Islands. 
  • Fixed the issue that prevents the Northern Lawmaker skin applied to any Warrior sub-class from displaying correctly when dyed. 
  • Solved the language-translation issue that resulted in emoticons exchanged between players of different languages being displayed as text. 
  • Fixed a DX11 issue that caused the UI scale to be offset after fiddling with native resolution settings while in Full-Screen mode. 
  • Solved the issue that resulted in the player being booted from the game while playing in the Central European region. 
  • Implemented the groundwork for new hosts for the European region called ‘Europe West.’ While the region selection tab for Europe West will be visible after the maintenance downtime, the servers will not be available immediately to players. 

The groundwork being laid for the new European servers will take a lot of pressure off the European game grid for Lost Ark and enable more players in these regions to play more comfortably. This means no more ‘Cannot connect due to heavy traffic’ and ‘Error 10027’ notifications. 

The server downtime will commence at 07:59 UTC and will last roughly three hours. Therefore, the brave Arkesian warriors will have to wait until 11:00 UTC to play again. Remember that this maintenance period may take longer than expected, and not all the servers are guaranteed to come back at once. While you wait for gameplay to resume, why not read about the Lost Ark Twitch Drops?
