Contrary to what one might think, songs in Lost Ark aren’t just purely cosmetic, they play an important role in gameplay. In the game, songs allow you, among other things, to quickly get to hard-to-reach and unique places, as well as to improve your relationships with the residents of Arkesia.
How do songs work?
The song system in Lost Ark is quite simple. As you progress through the story and through quests, you will regularly receive new sheet music. You can learn them by right-clicking on the relevant item in your inventory and you can also find them in the sheet music menu, which you can access with F2.
To play a song, simply drag it from the sheet music menu to your action bar and click on it. After the channel time, the respective effect comes into effect.
