The Korean online role-playing game Lost Ark can easily overwhelm newcomers with its countless menus. How do I find my friends? How do I create a group and then how can I leave it? And can I actually share my quests? To ensure that playing with your friends runs smoothly from the start, we have put together a short guide for you.
How do I send a friend request?
To add your fellow players to your friends list in Lost Ark, first open the menu with the escape key and select the “Friends” option in the community column on the right. Alternatively, click on the Community tab at the bottom of the game and select “Friends” or open the Friends menu by pressing the U key.
Here you can now send out friend requests. Make sure that you have to look for your fellow players by their in-game character names – not by their user or account names.
You can also add your friends via chat with the command /addfriend [playername] or /invitefriend [playername]. Now all you have to do is wait for them to accept your request.
How do I find my friends?
In order to be able to play together with your friends, you must first find each other in the game. There are a few things to keep in mind:
- Server: Make sure your characters are all on the same server.
- Channel: Each server has multiple instances called channels. You must be on the same channel to see your friends in-game. You can see your channel on the top right above the minimap. If there are still enough free places available, you can also switch to another channel. If you don’t see a channel display in the top right, it’s because you’re still in the prologue and you have to finish it first before you can meet other players and, accordingly, your friends in the world.
How do I invite friends to my group?
Once you have added your fellow players to your friends’ list, there are several ways in which you can invite them to a shared group.
- Via the friends’ menu
- First, open the menu with the U key or via the “Community” tab at the bottom of the screen. Now right-click on the name of your friend that you want to add to your party and select “Group Invite”.
- Via chat
- With the commands /inviteparty [playername] and /invite [playername] you can also send out a group invitation to your friends.
- If the friend is nearby
- If you already see your friend’s character in the game world, you can also simply hold down the Ctrl key and right-click on the player. A drop-down menu also opens here and you can select »Group invitation«.
Note that only the party creator can add other players to the same party. If you don’t want to receive any group invitations, you can set the settings under the “Community” and “Notifications and requests” tabs so that the game automatically rejects any invitations for you.
How can I kick someone out of the group?
If you no longer want a player in your party, the group creator can kick him again at any time. This can be done as usual either by right-clicking on the player name or in the chat with the commands /partyban [player name] or /ban [player name] .
If you are not the party creator, you can use the /voteban [playername] command in chat to vote for a player to leave. The player will only be kicked if all players vote for it. If you abstain from voting, that counts as a dissenting vote.
How can I leave a group?
If you want to leave a party yourself, you can do so in chat using the commands /leaveparty or /leave. Or you can hold down the Ctrl key and right-click on your name. Select »Leave group« from the drop-down menu.
Are quests shared with the group?
There is no command in Lost Ark to share quests with your party members. If you play in a group, there are certain quests that only have to be accepted by one group member and are automatically shared with the group. This includes, for example, tasks for which you have to kill a certain number of monsters. Progress on these quests also counts for the entire party. Other quests have to be accepted and processed individually by each party member.
There are also quests that you can’t tackle as a group. These occur especially during the main story. In these instanced areas you are alone and only return to your group after completion. So be prepared that you can’t do everything together with your friends, especially in the leveling phase, and that you often have to play alone.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Korisca
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the different parts of Vandelay Island and encounter different enemies. As players progress through the main story of the game, they will get to fight the main heads of Vandelay Island as well which are the main bosses of the game. One of the bosses that players will get to fight is Zanzo who is the head of Security on Vandelay Island.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Korisca in Hi-Fi Rush.
Korisca is the fourth main boss that players will get to face in Hi-Fi Rush. Players will fight her in the 6th stage of the game where Chai will break into her office to talk her out rather than fighting but you will end up getting fighting her. Korisca fight is different than the previous boss fights and at the start, you will get to parry and dodge her attacks.
At the start, you will get to parry attacks by pressing the parry button which is B at the perfect timing of her attacks. Before she gets to attack you, you will listen a beat to which she readies her attacks. You need to memorize that beat and press the Parry button in the same order and time to perfectly parry her attacks. After parrying her attacks three times, she will use Wind Attacks which are un-parryable.
You will have to use the dodge button which is RB to dodge the wind attack and use the parry to parry the rest of the attacks. Un-parryable attacks are shown with a wind symbol before she gets to attack you. As you deplete her HP one time, her health will regenerate and she will throw more fast-paced and longer combos at you.
Make sure to memorize all the hits of the combo and press the parry and dodge buttons accordingly. You will not get to land any combo or special attack because you want her to join your team in taking down SPECTRA.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Zanzo
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the different parts of Vandelay Island and encounter different enemies. As players progress through the main story of the game, they will get to fight the main heads of Vandelay Island as well which are the main bosses of the game. One of the bosses that players will get to fight is Zanzo who is the head of the R&D Branch where all the AI Development of SPECTRA happens.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Zanzo in Hi-Fi Rush.
Zanzo is the third boss of the game which players will encounter in the fourth stage of the game. Defeating Zanzo takes a bit of an alternative way rather than fighting him in a 1v1 battle. Zanzo has created many machines and tools with his AI Development skills and players will have to go through all the waves of enemies that Zanzo has created. By doing this, players will be exhausting the Budgets of Zanzo.
Players will go through different choruses of Zanzo where he will bring out his different machines that you have to defeat in order to defund Zanzo. In the first chorus, you will get to fight the normal enemies. Defeat them to move on to the next chorus where you will get to fight the first major machine named “PGR-0101”. This machine has a variety of attacks as well as a shield. The best way to defeat it is to call Macaron who will destroy the shield of the machine and you will get the opening where you will be able to land the combos with your attack. Do the perfect timing combos to recharge your special attack. Do the Special Attack along with calling Peppermint to quickly defeat it.
The Budget of Zanzo greatly decreases after surviving the second chorus in the simulator. Later in the chorus, you will get to fight the enemies with the shield that you can break by calling Peppermint as well as Macaron. Use Macaron to break the shield of some enemies and for the rest of the enemies call peppermint. Take out the enemies one by one to encounter the next technology of Zanzo. You will get to fight the Drones for which you will have to parry their attacks. Parrying their attacks will give you the opportunity to hit them again and you will be able to take them out in no time. Call Peppermint as well while fighting the drones.
In the third and last chorus, you will make your way to the lava area where you will have to dodge the falling lava balls. Dodge the green marks on the ground to dodge the lava balls and use the zipline to move to other areas. You will make your way to the Gift Basket where the last fight takes place. You will get to fight the same enemies as before where you will have to call Macaron to take their shields down and then attack them with your combo attacks and special attacks. However, the main thing that you want to focus on during the fight is falling lava balls.
Make sure to dodge the green areas on the ground to dodge the lava. Fight the enemies by calling Peppermint and Macaron to take them out. Once you have defeated the enemies, you will see the lens from earlier in the fight. You need to attack the lens which will start a sequence. Complete the sequence by pressing the buttons on the screen to start a cutscene. Zanzo will get defunded in the cutscene which leads Chai to defeat Zanzo and retrieve the USB which contains the Data about SPECTRA.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Rekka
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the city of Vandelay where they will get to uncover cool technologies as well as fight different enemies. As players progress through the game, they will get to fight different bosses that have only one purpose, to recall (Kill) the defected which is Chai, our main character. One of the main bosses that players will get to fight is Rekka.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Rekka in Hi-Fi Rush.
Rekka’s both arms are robotic and she will be doing a lot of punching attacks as well as dashing attack combos with them. The Punching attacks are easier to dodge but if you get hit by one of the dashing combo attacks, you will be hit by the rest of the combo as well so, try to dodge it by looking at the ground. There will be a range meter and the direction of where Rekka will be dashing. Stay away from the range and the direction and let her complete her combo so, you don’t get in her way while she is doing the combo.
To deal damage to Rekka, hit her with your attack combos and try to sync them with the beat to deal extra damage and charge your special attack quickly. Once the special attack is charged, use it to deal a decent amount of damage to her. You can also call Peppermint during the fight to deal more damage to her. Once you have lowered her first bar, she will get stunned and you will get to deplete her first bar of HP. After that, she will remove the cover of the floor to absorb the electric current on her robotic arms.
Now, she will be able to land the punches with electric current. Punches can be dodged easily but she can trick you with the moves. She will also be doing the ground slam with the electric current that has a bit of range. If you are inside the ground slam range then you will get electrocuted which will take a lot of your HP. Try to maintain a distance from her and don’t go to remove the cover of the arena because it will give you damage as well. She will also do the slam attack on the electric wires which will generate shock waves in the arena and in order to dodge that, you will have to double jump and grab one of the magnets in the air.
She will create an energy shield around her which can be easily broken by calling peppermint. Other than dodging her moves, you can easily damage her by hitting her with the combo and calling Peppermint. Once you have depleted the second bar of her HP, you will get to complete a sequence of dodging the pipes that are thrown by Rekka. Dodge the Pipes by moving left and right and after the sequence, you can just use your special attack on her and call peppermint at the same time to deal great damage to her. She will be using pipes to do the slam attacks which can be dodged easily. She will also use her arms to grab you so, try to avoid it by doing a double jump until she stops trying to grab you. Other than that, just keep doing your combo attacks and calling peppermint to deal damage to her.
After depleting the third bar of her HP, the arena will turn red and she will begin to do the dashing combo with electric arms. You can just keep your distance until she has done the combo. After that, use your special attack if charged and call peppermint to deal damage. She will also be using the rest of her attacks so, just dodge them and keep calling peppermint to deplete her HP gradually. Once you get close to her, do the combo and land the perfect sync to stun her and do the special attack to defeat her.
